Traditional Chinese medicine provides patients with herbal and acupuncture therapy based on regulation of the zang-fu organs and the acupuncture meridian network. The majority of schools and colleges of East Asian medicine utilize information from the classical period (pre-20th century), as well as TCM information from the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Due to modern stressors not known in classical times, patients now face health issues that have not been well defined in available Chinese medicine literature. Modern stressors include environmental toxins, dietary excesses of sugars and carbohydrates, pharmaceuticals, and more.

Would you like to gain confidence in treating modern illnesses not discussed in classical Chinese medicine?

Functional Medicine explores modern physiology to look at the etiology of new patterns of illness, and the consequences of environmental toxins. It also offers therapies using vitamins, minerals, amino acids and their combinations to address new patterns of disease.  

Chinese herbal medicine, using both classical formulas as well as newer formulas based on modern developments in China, has more to offer therapeutically than the nutritional approach of Functional Medicine alone.

By addressing modern illnesses through Functional Medicine with a TCM approach, you can achieve an effective and powerful line of therapy.
