Treating Symptoms & Healing the Root Cause of Illness


Signs of Illness From the Point of View of Chinese Medicine

How Do We Get Ill?

Emotions are the beginning of illness. Why?

Because we were taught that it is wrong to express how we feel. We bottle up our anger, fear, guilt, and so on. Over time, all these repressed feelings become physical illness like pain, cancer, fibromyalgia, headaches, etc.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ is affected by an emotion.

The Heart - Joy

If unbalanced, you have anxiety, insomnia, feelings of emptiness, a tight chest, and bad circulation.

The Spleen - Worry

If unbalanced, you have digestive problems, lack of energy, forgetfulness, heaviness in the body, mental & muscle weakness.

The Lungs - Sadness & Grief

If unbalanced, you have breathing problems, sadness, allergies, skin problems, colds, or flus.

The Kidneys - Fear

If unbalanced, you have lower back and knee pain, coldness, difficulty breathing, prostate problems, or sexual and reproductive problems.

The Liver - Anger & Depression

If unbalanced, you have headaches, Extreme PMS, painful periods, digestive/acid regurgitation problems, or constant irritability. You don’t like anyone, including yourself.

Why take Herbs? Traditional Chinese Medicine has used herbs in the healing process for over five thousand years

When using the herbs in conjunction with acupuncture, the effectiveness of both increases.

Quality Manufacture - Modern Approach

Raw herbs are carefully sourced from selected areas where authentic species of herbs are grown and harvested. Every batch of raw herbs is tested for pesticides and heavy metals. To test for trace amounts of heavy metals, state-of-the-art analytic equipment is used such as Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES). Modern analytical tests include High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), and Thin-layer Chromatography (TLC).
