Health in everyday life
Our health is constantly reflected in every aspects of life. We spent most of our time sleeping, eating, thinking, walking, going to the washroom. How well these day-to-day tasks are performed not only determine the quality of our life, also is the accurate reflection of health. For women, how does the monthly period feel also reflects women's health. If there is bad cramps for example, it is not just cramps, it is the tip of the iceberg, it takes away part of the precious life, both in time and quality. Human experience should neither be neglected nor downplayed as the excuse for our incompetence to help and ignorance.
Any change in state of health, whether is positive or negative, will be manifested in our day-to-day life. If you pay attention to your body, you will notice it.
The "What the Heck?!" Effect
Here are some of the mind-boggling 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.
Get HIGH faster with less amount of weeds, after two treatments for shoulder/back pain and bad posture. What the heck?!
The list can go on but the "What The Heck?!" effect really reveals how fascinate the human body is, and how little we know about it.
The only explanation I could come up with is that while the treatment is helping the primary complaints, the baseline of health is also changed. And this phenomenon can only happen if the treatment somehow touches the underlying structure and functions that give rise to the primary complaints also contribute to other health problems. As the result of that, you could save quite a bit of money on weeds but may end up spending more on alcohol. Whether it is a bonus or risk from treatment, is totally up to you.
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 >>
