TCM for General Health
Maybe you don’t have any serious illness, but often experience migraines, insomnia or other discomforts that affect your quality of life and prevent you from functioning at your optimal level.
‘Sub-health issues’ are often used to describe a range of non-specific symptoms and ailments that don’t fit into a clear disease category but indicate that an individual’s health is not optimal. If left untreated, they can put you at risk of developing more serious conditions later on.
Common sub-health issues we routinely help with include (but not limited to):
- Common cold, flu & cough
- Headaches & migraines
- High cholesterol
- Lethargy & fatigue
- Poor immune system
- Digestive Issues
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Gastric pain
- Eye conditions (dry eyes, myopia, glaucoma, floaters)
- Sexual health & Erectile dysfunction
- Mental health (stress, depression, anxiety)
A TCM Perspective
Chinese medicine theories view sub-health conditions as resulting from imbalances in the flow of Qi (vital life energy) and blood in the body’s meridians (energy pathways), as well as in key organs responsible for different parts of functioning in the body.
Any of these imbalances can manifest as fatigue, migraines, insomnia and other sub-health issues. Environmental factors, such as diet, climate, emotional stress, and lifestyle choices can also contribute to imbalances and exacerbate sub-health symptoms.
Through the TCM diagnosis and treatment methods such as acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and/or herbal medication, we aim to holistically treat any imbalances in your body for it to function optimally again.
The TCM Treatment Process
A one-on-one consultation with a TCM physician and health examination using TCM diagnostic methods (e.g. tongue and pulse examination).
Based on the assessment results, your physician will diagnose the underlying health issues and imbalances connected to the presenting problems.
TCM treatments such as acupuncture, cupping or moxibustion would be performed to correct the identified health imbalances.
The specific treatments chosen and methods of application would be tailored to your condition.
(Optional) Your physician may also prescribe herbal medication whenever it can be beneficial for your condition.
Chronic Diseases Management
TCM can also help in the management of chronic conditions including (but not limited to):
- Diabetes & pre-diabetes
- Hypertension, or high-blood pressure
- Heart conditions
- Cancer (Preparing for chemo, providing relief for symptoms and treatment side effects)
- Post-stroke symptoms
- Neurological conditions (Parkinson’s disease, Dementia)
In managing chronic conditions, TCM treatments aim to address the underlying imbalances in the body to reduce symptoms, counteract the side-effects of treatments and improve patients’ quality of life. They can also help to regulate bodily functions, boost the immune system, and promote healing. Lifestyle and dietary changes will also be advised when relevant.
