Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system unto itself, dating back over 3,000 years. This system includes acupuncture, food therapy, exercise and herbal remedies. The idea of moving Qi (CHEE) in the body can be accomplished with acupuncture and with herbs. Different herbs have different properties, draining heat, tonifying the body, relieving pain.
At CRCG Holistic/Integrative Alternatives, patients are examined from a traditional perspective and also with the Chinese medical system in mind. The examination reveals the needs of the patient and appropriate herbals can be prescribed.
“Lucy”, an 11 year old Fox Terrier, suffered from red painful eyes. She would paw at her eyes and was even restless in her sleep from discomfort. The referring veterinarian had tried traditional drugs without any effect. Lucy could not have corticosteroids due to the side effects. A herbal combination was prescribed and within 36 hours, her eyes were symptom free, her pain gone and both Lucy and her mom got a good night’s sleep.Share
