The more I treat people, the more I'm convinced that at least 50% of all illness in this country is completely preventable. When we take care of our bodies, our bodies takes care of us. How revolutionary is that?
The beginning of my work with each patient starts with a complete health history which includes an inventory of prior illnesses and surgeries, medications taken, foods eaten and exercise routines.
I find that simple life style changes lead to seemingly miraculous and lasting results. This is the beauty of East Asian medicine. Acupuncture looks at natural ways for treating diseases and has been used for thousands of years because of the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Think about it, how many things in life have the ability to repair themselves. Now think about how many times you, YES YOU, have recovered from colds, pain, sprained ankles, scraped knees. Seriously, count the many times that you have gotten ill and have rid yourself of that illness.
Personally, I've never met an illness that I could not treat. With time and intention, healing is always possible. This is the cornerstone of the work that I do.
