With its balancing properties, Chinese medicine is helpful for many emotional issues. It can be used in conjunction with western medications.
Sometimes Chinese medicine brings about a big change in gastro-intestinal function. I see a lot of success in treating IBS and other bowel dysfunction. I’ve had many patients find they no longer need anti-acid medications for acid reflux. Appetite issues, nausea and vomiting, and GI pain also may be treated successfully.
I have experience treating menstrual problems and the symptoms that sometimes occur with menopause. I do not treat pregnancy, infertility, or PCOS
Sleep problems can arise from a variety of imbalances. Getting to the root of the problem is one of Chinese medicine’s strengths.
I have experience working with kidney and bladder issues including urinary dysfunction, pain, and inflammation. Early treatment of UTI can prevent the need for antibiotics.
Chinese medicine can offer assistance in degenerative conditions by relieving pain and by supporting a person’s energy.
Heart issues should always be investigated by a medical doctor. I play an adjunct role in treating arrhythmias, angina, or debility from cardiac procedures. I often treat hypertension.
