Here at the Acupuncture Center we are dedicated to getting you as well as possible as quickly as possible. Some things however, like chronic disease, can take some time. Our approach to defeating any disease is to promote health. To try and 'kill' the disease or cut it out rarely works or rarely works well. Health must be promoted from within and there are many things you can add to your lifestyle that will make you more resistant to disease and give you a good chance of overcoming any disease that you have. When you add a bunch of healthy things together that you do often that is the best way to become or remain healthy. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are two health promoting things that we are fond of. Proper diet is another. Bringing the body into better balance and promoting the immune system as these things do are very effective. The overall health of the body is always taken into account with our patients. This is really the meaning of holistic medicine, that the patients is treated as a whole person.
