Traditional medicine in China and other parts of Asia have been around for thousands of years.Thousands! Without a doubt, the most well-known treatment method from traditional Asian medicines is acupuncture, but there are other treatments available that can help relieve your symptoms and rebalance your body.
Herbs in traditional Asian medicine are usually blends of many different medicinal plants (and sometimes sea creatures!); the formulas have been around for thousands of years, and naturopathic doctors choose specific formulas for you depending on your pattern of disease or disharmony. Some herbs are used to help move Qi that is stuck, some are used to help build strength in weakened organs, while others are used to help release excess heat or cold from the body.
There are some jobs that acupuncture on its own just isn’t strong enough for, especially if you are weak or deficient! In these cases, naturopathic doctors have training in selecting the right herbal formula for you that will work with the acupuncture and everything else you’re doing to be healthy, and get you feeling balanced! It’s something that makes us smile.
