The Effective Alternative
Healthy Living Through Natural Medicine
At Richmond Hill Acupuncture and Natural Therapy Clinic we specialize in treating a wide range of ailments using effective, natural treatments built on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back well over 2,000 years and is based on the concept of maintaining balance between the Yin and the Yang. They are not so much “opposite” but also “complementary”. For example, the cold is Yin in nature, and heat is Yang in nature, which are opposites, but they are also complementary, as things that are cold can heat up, and things that are hot can cool down. In order to maintain good overall health one needs to ensure these complementary forces are properly balanced.
The practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine has been proven over the centuries to be a highly effective way to achieve and maintain good health. At Richmond Hill Herbal Medicine we use this collection of ancient knowledge to treat a wide array of ailments, conditions, illnesses and diseases such as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menstrual issues and PMS, diabetes, chronic pain, arthritis, headaches, tendinitis, skin disorders, high blood pressure, anxiety and stress, depression, insomnia, allergies, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome and many more.
The Role of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the most widely known aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has gained wide acceptance in the West, because it is both minimally invasive and extremely effective. Acupuncture is used to restore proper flow to the body’s essential life energy — or “Qi” — which moves through the body along internal meridians and maintain balance. Should this flow become disrupted or one or more of these meridians become blocked, the resulting imbalance can manifest all manner of disease and afflictions.
Acupuncture treats these afflictions by restoring the body’s Qi flow. It is especially effective in reducing — and in some cases eliminating — pain associated with injury or other factors. The practice of acupuncture has been recognized by all responsible medical authorities the world over today. Here at the clinic, our acupuncturists are fully licensed and registered practitioners of this ancient treatment, who have helped scores of people both maintain and return to optimal, robust health following illness or injury.
A Preventative Approach
While Chinese Herbal Medicine is certainly effective in treating many ailments and more, it is not strictly a reactive system. Indeed, just as much or more emphasis is given on maintaining overall well-being by preventing those ailments from arising in the first place. Many Chinese herbal medicine have antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties that can be used to prevent the onset of a number of illnesses. Chinese herbs can be incorporated into the patient’s diet to help boost the immune system and ward off diseases.
Chinese herbal medicine represents a holistic approach to health that emphasizes prevention as much as reaction. The underlying principles upon which this ancient science is constructed are diametrically opposed to those of Western medicine, which by and large seeks to treat ailments after they have already arise. While certainly, Chinese herbal medicine is also effective in treating existing conditions, its practitioners value its preventive nature even more.
