What TCM Treats

 

 

If you believe you have no more choices but to suffer, come see me.

If you are taking drugs that cause effects you do not like, come see me.

If you have been told that surgery is the only option, come see me.

 

Most people still associate acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine with pain. Last year in North America pain was pushed down to the number two spot for common conditions treated by TCM. The number one condition treated by TCM is now anxiety, and this was according to a national survey by the insurance industry.

TCM is the historic medicine practiced in China. It has been continuously evolving and improving for over 2000 years. The only conditions I do not treat in my clinic are emergency medical conditions like a ruptured appendix or broken bones. (See me immediately after they set your broken bone and I’ll set you up with herbs to help you heal faster than expected.) The conditions I do treat successfully are countless. I have helped women considered infertile to conceive, women with histories of miscarriage to deliver successfully, people avoid gallbladder surgery and knee surgery, men with low testosterone recover their zest for life, reduce and manage chronic pain, overcome food allergies, and recovery from depression.

ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS get a second opinion from another expert in the field of your primary physician, and then get an opinion from someone in another field. This is your right. You are entitled to the best care you can get, and to consider the opinions of more than one expert on your condition.   You are worth the effort!   The final choice always belongs to you.
