Internal Medicine Disorders & Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors have been studying and effectively treating internal medicine diseases since at least 100 BC with the publication of The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine. Our medical system prides itself on the ability to treat the causes of illness as well as the symptoms. It is preventative as well as restorative in nature.
In its wisdom, Chinese medicine is able to determine the strengths and weaknesses of individual patients. Many patients experience sub-clinical complaints, such as fatigue, headache, low sex drive or weight gain. Western medicine often does not recognize the significance of these complaints. Chinese medicine views any observable symptom or sign as related to Internal Organ function. A careful patient interview and exam reveal to the TCM practitioner which systems in the body are strong and which are weak. This method allows not only treatment of the immediate condition, but also keeps the body/mind strong with preventative care. Chinese medicine can ‘see’ structures and functions that are weakened before they physically manifest. This is perhaps the most significant aspect of Chinese medicine.
We access the body’s innate healing mechanisms through the parasympathetic nervous system, the endocrine system and the circulatory system, thereby enabling TCM practitioners to address a variety of complaints. Call or email us if you have questions about your particular condition and what treatment protocol we would recommend.
