By Dr. Kathleen Albertson, L. Ac., PhD Holistic Nutrition
What health protocol gives you optimum health?
Are you worse today than you were 2 years ago? TCM helps chronic problems.
Has western medicine or western drugs masked your symptoms and hasn't moved you forward towards improved health?
Do you suffer chronically from multiple health problems?
Acupuncture and herbal medicine holds secrets to returning you to your optimum vitality.
Do you want to feel dramatically physically and emotionally better? Then Acupuncture and herbal medicine is for you.
Here's 4 Reasons Why:
1.Treats multiple symptoms at the same time.
TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine which includes acupuncture and herbal medicine) is the only medical system that treats multiple problems at the same time. If you suffer from back pain, and a sensitive stomach and depression for example-guess what... all of it can all be treated at the same time. This differs from Western medicine that compartmentalizes your problems, can't address multiple issues at the same time, and uses drugs to mask symptoms. Who wants to be on medications forever? Do you know how harsh those drugs are on your liver and kidneys? Many drugs only add to chronic illness because they can deteriorate your major organs. Most patients want to be well. They want to be off medications, relieved of pain, and infused with vitality! TCM delivers.
2. Gives you vitality and energy.
Acupuncture works with qi energy which basically is oxygen-like, flowing throughout your body. By bringing qi energy to the body your vitality improves and your blood system is enhanced so that more circulation of blood brings more nutrition to your internal circuit boards. That's why excess weight is so dangerous. It reduces blood flow to your organs... they become anemic-starved in a sense-- so they reduce function. Let's improve function!
A health based medicine designed to promote vitality and great health. A curative approach...not a Band-aid. All of your organs, muscle, bones, nerves and ligaments are connected. When disease exists, blockages occur. TCM removes the blockages allowing qi and blood to flow-accessing all of the body's systems. WOW! What causes blockages? Medications, ageing, trauma or injuries, stress, overwork chronic illness, fatigue, lifestyle, diet or nutritional choices. TCM addresses all of this. As a practitioner, I discuss your medical history, nutrition, and lifestyle. "I want to know all of your complaints and I want to help you resolve them. Why wait for western medicine to find your illness in a blood test or in a scan. Some patients have seen a migraine specialist for 10 years without change...without hope. Why not try something curative! Let's treat your imbalances early before your disease status becomes serious". Western medicine triggers the treatment after it shows up on their diagnostics. TCM treats imbalances by tongue and pulse diagnose, and an extensive inquiry, listening and observation. If your tests come back fine... western medicine tells you "you are fine". If you don't feel well, let's fix that without harsh medications. Many patients use TCM for all of their health problems, not just the occasional back or neck pain. It treats internal organ problems, stress, fatigue, flu, fertility, gynecology issues, insomnia, etc.
4. Improves Healthy Life years!
Another way to say it is that TCM reduces chronic morbidity. "Chronic disease is a major cause of death, illness, and disability.
Heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes are among the most prevalent, costly, and preventable of all health problems. They can be minimized or eliminated with prevention interventions and holistic management." Disease statistics and autoimmune disorders are increasing and our people are becoming sicker.
TCM provides tools to put this "cancer" in remission so to speak. We should be very, very concerned at the fast rate of destruction when it comes to our health, and we should take action to change that course. Today, people succumb to stroke and other disabling diseases that they live through for years and years on end. How many older (or younger) people do you see or know who have canes, walkers, Depends, diabetes, dementia or Alzheimer's? There are just too many chronically sick people!
Taking care of your health requires a plan. If you are proactive, your quality and longevity of life will tremendously be enhanced.
