Why should I choose Traditional Chinese Medicine ?
No one can deny that Western medicine, with its quick acting medicinal drugs, and surgical expertise, saves hundreds of millions of lives around the world every year. Unfortunately, it follows a rigid scientific treatment framework where each condition is treated in a single way, which is not always adequate if the patient's dysfunction is due to multiple causes.
In contrast,Traditional Chinese Medicine has a more flexible treatment approach where the same condition will be treated in a totally different way acccording to the variations, and locations of the symptoms of the patients.
Therefore,the two medical systems can be seen as complementary with each other. Western medicine will be more effective in acute, life threatening conditions. While Traditional Chinese Medicine will often achieve better results in complex, chronic, lingering disharmonies.
The World Health Organization (WHO,1979), has published a list of more than 100 disorders which have been successfully treated by Acupuncture or Chinese Herbal medicine. A few examples are:
Musculo Skeletal Disorders
Oesteoarthritis, sciatica, low back pain, gout, "frozen shoulder", "tennis elbow". sprained ankles and knees, cartilage problems, torn ligaments and bruises.
hiccups, duodenal ulcers, gastritis, stomach pain, bloating after meals, diarrhea,loss of weight, constipation, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Bronchial asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, common cold, sore throat, cough.
Insomnia, migraine, headaches,anxiety, depression.
Premenstrual tension, period pain, menopausal disorders.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine which originated in China over 3000 years ago.
According to these principles of Oriental Medicine, a form of energy called Qi flows throughout an intricate network of pathways which constantly penetrate and nourish every particles of our body, muscles and organs.
When the Qi becomes blocked or deficient, discomfort, pain, then injuries or illnesses will gradually occur.
There are over 350 acupuncture points located along these meridians. By stimulating these points with very fine neeedles, the quality and quantity of energy can be harmonized, allowing the body to recover by itself promply without the addition of costly chemical drugs.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can very often resolve disharmonies in the body before they develop into illnesses.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is often used in combination with Acupuncture. It is now available in powder, pill or high strength capsule forms . These are long lasting, convenient and economical to use. One should mention that, in accordance with international regulations, the use of endangered species in Chinese Herbal Medicine is strictly forbidden in this country.
Toyohari style Acupuncture
It is a powerful, but very gentle form of acupuncture which was invented by blind Japanese acupuncturists in the 1950s.
These practitioners learnt to use their highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes in the moisture, resilience, and temperature of their patient's skin which are indicative of dysfunction in the body.
Today, these diagnostic methods remain the foundations of this school of therapy. In Japan, Toyohari is famous for its delicate techniques and the skills of its practitioners.
In the majority of cases, in a Toyohari treatment, the needles are instantly withdrawn without even penetrating the skin.
The Toyohari Japanese approach is more gentle, and the practitioner's touch and needling often feels lighter and less invasive than commonly used Chinese acupunture techniques. .
Due to its gentle nature, this style of acupuncture is particulary suitable to children, elderly people and anyone particulary sensitive to needles.
Is it Safe?
Yes, for several reasons:
* In Australia, to join a professional association and become an accreditated private Insurance provider, any potential acupuncturist must have completed a minimum 4 year training at University level.
* All acupuncturists must comply with a very strict code of ethics and safety. For example, all the needles used in a clinic must be sterilised and disposable.
* The absence of chemical drugs in Chinese Herbal Medicine greatly eliminates the risks of side effects experienced with western medicine.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Digestive Disorders.
Nearly, one in three Australians suffers every day from some digestive problems. In the majority of these cases, there are multiple causes for these dysfunctions which make them especially difficult to treat .
While Western Medicine can often offer quick symptomatic relief to some of the unpleasant symptoms. it can struggle to achieve long term results without causing disturbing additional side effects.
This is one of the areas where Traditional Chinese medicine can often be more effective in resolving long lasting digestive problems.
A skilled Oriental practitioner will be able to differentiate between the different patterns which are causing dysfunctions such as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation, bloating , tiredness after meals, diarrhea or stomach pain.
