Chinese medicine first of all is preventive medicine. We don’t wait to heal the body when a person is experiencing disease, we balance the body when a person is still in the stage of dis-ease – when symptoms show up telling us that the body is out of balance.
The main tool of Chinese medicine is diagnoses. We want to know what the root is- what is the cause of the dis- balance, and treat that. It could be food that we need to eliminate, for example coffee that makes the body too acidic. It could be suppressed sorrow, that weakens the lungs, lack of blood that causes PMS etc…
We diagnose by the tongue, pulse, smell, nails, hair, skin, general appearance and deep questioning about your emotional and physical health from the day you were born.
The symptoms are the language of the body telling us what is out of balance. The Chinese masters for thousand of years opened thousand of bodies. And they discovered that the symptoms tell us what’s going on inside the body.
For example they opened many bodies that had a fungi in the toe nail and saw that those bodies had a bad liver condition. They opened bodies that had premature white hair and saw that all of those bodies had kidney deficiency. That is how they found out that the outer symptoms are a reflection of what’s going on in the internal organs.
Each symptom in the body tells us about our emotional and physical state of being. And by treating it on time we can prevent that organ from dis functioning.
When a child has an ear infection we know it’s the kidneys, later on if not being treated with the right food, herbs, emotional balance, acupuncture and feng shui he will start suffering from fear and paranoia, low back pain, weak knees, premature white hair , lose his hearing, tinting and then renal insufficiency.
Our goal as Chinese Doctors is to prevent dis balances- symptoms becoming sickness or disease. With the tools of: Diagnosing, customizing a diet, herbs, breath work, tui na, acupuncture, chi gong and feng shui.
Small tuning in your lifestyle can make a major difference in your health and vitality.
