Homeopathy is a system of medicine developed in the 18th century by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathic remedies work with the body to help stimulate healing functions through the Law of Similars. Homeopathy is a powerful tool that addresses healing on a physical and emotional level. Homeopathic remedies may occasionally result in the temporary aggravation of pre-existing symptoms. If aggravations persist, an antidote may be considered.
Traditional Chinese Medicine includes the use of acupuncture, Eastern herbs and dietary changes to invite balance. It is based on the theory that all existence and activity including health and disease can be explained by the constant interaction of two universal forces: Yin and Yang. Disease can arise when these forces fail to be in equilibrium.
Acupuncture is the act of inserting sterilized, disposable needles through the skin into the underlying tissues at specific points on the body that correspond to the acupuncture meridian systems. Stimulation of these points can disperse blocked, stagnant energy, and allow for the body to regain equilibrium. Eastern herbs may be given for internal or external use in the form of pills, tinctures, or strong teas. Dietary advice is based on traditional Chinese medical theory.
Botanical medicine is a plant based medicine that involves the use of herbal teas, tinctures, extracts and other forms of herbal preparations to assist in recovery from injury and disease, or to assist in optimizing the body’s normal physiological function.
Individualized diets and nutritional supplements may be recommended to address deficiencies, treat disease processes, and promote health. Some benefits may include increased energy, improved gastrointestinal function, improved immunity and general well being. In some cases vitamins such a B12 and folic acid are injected intramuscularly for increased therapeutic effect and bioavailability.
