Eastern Medicine

What Is Eastern Medicine?

It grounds us and reminds us of our humanity through it’s diagnostic approach and treatment strategies, reinforcing the reality of the human condition: that we are nature and not separate from it, nor are we in control of nature, yet we can have a profound effect upon nature, our own and the environment around us.

Acupuncture literally stimulates our body’s inherent healing capacity. The experience of acupuncture, herbology, food therapy, or tai chi & qi gong, connects us to and reinforces the actual paradigm of healing as nature designed: gradual pattern oriented growth slowly changing over time, usually through repetition, patience, consistency.

Eastern Medicine treats the patient not the disease contrasted with western allopathic medicine which is primarily disease driven & symptom oriented. Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment strategies address both the root and the branch of disharmony and disease, per each individual patient, as each person is unique – the map is not the territory.

Practitioner and patient examine pathology and disharmony together, cultivating health via responsibility.

Through the stimulation and cultivation of health, doctor and patient work together to optimize the patient’s condition, focusing on balance, function, prevention and intervention.

Observing nature’s ways revealed that the human condition is a mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical condition – and journey! These aspects of us are best viewed and treated in their natural state: co-occurring aspects of the same phenomena. We are a microcosm of nature and therefore are subject to the same ecological conditions and stresses.

Eastern Medicine reflects microcosmic/macrocosmic dynamics: patterns & relationships of organ networks determine functionality of the body and psyche.

Treatment presents modern westerners with what is actually missing in their lives: a dynamic of a meditative quality, requiring reflection upon one’s state in time and space.

Energy is the root of the universe as verified in quantum physics – human beings are microcosmic universes unto themselves, with energy at the core of pathology and disease. Treatment via the organ networks and energetic meridians averts disease.
