Did you know that 60% of people worldwide use Eastern medicine? As more research becomes available, you’ll find that a holistic approach includes both Western and Eastern medicine. 

By taking a multicultural approach to health care, we can address both the mind and body, along with the scientific structure of health problems. In fact, recent research points to substantial changes in the ways that we view the necessity of both forms of medicine.

Traditional Chinese medical practices (TCM) include a variety of methods that benefit a person’s life. Acupuncture helps with headaches, chronic musculoskeletal pain, and osteoarthritis. Moxibustion treats digestive issues, cold and flu symptoms, and arthritic pain. Many plants offer remedies for migraines, arthritis, and PMS. Tu nai helps with trauma and pain. Dietary therapy, which is eating healthy, addresses blood pressure, cholesterol and saturated fat levels. Tai chi, Qigong, and yoga continue to show evidence of improvement for those with back pain and ongoing issues with asthma.

The latest evidence looks to Interstitium and may be the basis for a substantial breakthrough in the medical world. Several doctors and researchers suggest that this will bring both Eastern and Western medicine together for increased integration. The human body is impressive and we have so much to learn! Start on a healthy path today by developing a holistic approach to your healthcare and stay tuned for exciting developments in healthcare.
