Are you struggling with a health condition that is not getting better? The healing process is complex. For the lucky ones, some rest, a pill or a quick procedure does the trick. However, for most of us, health problems are stubborn. And the path to maintaining good health can be elusive. Many people just give up, resigning themselves to live with pain or sickness. But there is another option. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treats many health conditions with great success. It is a powerful medicine because it addresses the root of the issue.
Chinese Medicine Is Medicine And Art
One of the reasons Chinese medicine is so effective at resolving thorny health issues is because it is flexible, allowing the doctor to fully investigate, explore and ultimately identify the true cause of a given health problem.
For example, six people might come to us with a western diagnosis of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Western medicine has a pill for this condition that is typically not effective. In Chinese medicine, we will treat each of these six people differently, depending on their particular symptoms, constitution and overall health, and heal all six of them with a different treatment plan.
In addition, sometimes the doctor will evaluate a patient, make a diagnosis and create a treatment plan, but the results are not satisfying. In Chinese medicine, this initial treatment becomes a stepping stone. Adjustments to the diagnosis and treatment plan are made, and the treatment are then continued.
Most often this process yields excellent results, and it is where the art of healing blossoms. Some trial and error is necessary for difficult conditions. Solutions are not always obvious or apparent until you start the process and see how the patient responds or fails to respond.
Difficult Case Resolved
For example, there was a case involving a woman who, after giving birth, had frequency of urination. She had to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes, all day long. She was treated with acupuncture in the typical fashion, as this is a common condition that usually gets excellent results with acupuncture.
However, in this particular case, the woman did not respond to acupuncture treatment. She also did not respond to Western medical treatment. A second round of acupuncture was suggested, and it was at this point that the practitioner modified the diagnosis and treatment plan.
Chinese medicine excels at having multiple options for treatment. It was developed over thousands of years, with different techniques and approaches evolving all the time. If a patient does not respond well to one approach, another is readily available. This is encouraged in Chinese medicine and it yields phenomenal results.
In the case of the woman with frequent urination, the new approach (using something called Channel Theory) resolved her problem within ten treatments. She was completely cured because the right diagnosis was found and the correct points were used. The other practitioners were not bad. They just did not correctly grasp the root issue for this patient.
