93 years old “perky” mom Shirley
I went to their house and treated Shirley with acupuncture and herbs. She was complaining pain in her right hip, groin and knee. Her daughter left me this message two days after my visist.
Health in everyday life
The state of health is not the numbers of the yearly blood test report. It is every aspects of our daily life. We spent much of time sleeping, eating, thinking, walking, going to the washroom. These daily physical and congnitive functions are the more accurate and relevant metrics of our health. For women, a regular(28+/- days), pain-free, medium flow(5-7 days) and relatively peaceful period is another important indicator of health. Taking quality over quantity is a better way to evaluate our health. Human experience should neither be neglected nor downplayed as the excuse for the incompetence.
"Side-effect" vs "What the Heck effect"
Here are some of the feedback from my clients:
No Hangover, surprisingly, after a night going out with friends.
Haven’t gotten sick in the past year as the client being treated for acne, while everybody around has been sick.
No more seasonal allergy after few visits for shoulder pain.
The Period came quietly without much of the usual warning signs, like cramps , mood swing during the treatment for chronic headaches.
The success of a treatment is not only measured by the desired effect but also the side-effect. If the cure is worse than the problem, why bother to take the treatment? The above examples demonstrate the side-effects of the treatment don't have to be negative. It can be pleasant.
Kampo is Japanese translation of “Han formulas”. It is the ancient Chinese medicine school brought to Japan in A.D 600. Kampo medicine is a unique system to assess and analyse health and disease, treat the human body as a whole with herbs, acupuncture, massage and medical exercise. The goal of Kampo treatment is not only to alleviate the symptoms, but also to reach a balanced state of health that provides great resilience to various factors such as food, weather, microbiome, physical and mental stress.
For the last several years, I have been applying Kampo Medicine in my practice as a R.TCMP, R.Ac and RMT. My first principle is always to identify and treat the underlying problems for better results. My bio >>
