The body is an open system of systems. Finding the imbalances of those systems and giving your body what it needs to return to better balance is the crux of Eastern and Western functional medicine. I review your labs and look at your health through TCM diagnostic methods to find the patterns unique to you. I curate a protocol that shifts as your health improves and your patterns change. Cut through googling and trying the next hot thing to get what your body actually needs.
I review all of your intake information (labs, reports, answers you provide about your health from head to toe), take your pulse, look at your tongue, and review range of motion and areas of injury or pain then discuss a treatment plan with you. You receive and Acupuncture treatment and other therapies. You start a supplement protocol that is gradual. I give you only exactly what you need then add to or change what you're taking as your symptoms change and improve.
My own health has had many drastic ups and downs. I didn't find what I needed to heal in western medicine, so I tried many different methods until I found TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). I recovered my health and now offer to you the power of this ancient medicine combined with the best of functional medicine and technology.
