Traditional Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive medical system originally developed in China over two thousand years ago and currently practiced all over the world. Like Homoeopathy it is a natural and holistic medicine that views illness as a state of imbalance within the body and acknowledges the role unresolved emotions have on disrupting physical and mental health. Acupuncture uses very fine, sterile, single use needles to activate specific points along the meridians (channels) of the body to restore the correct flow of energy.
Homoeopathy is a system of medicine which uses natural plant and mineral based substances in minute doses to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms. It works on the principle of “like cures like”, that is, a substance that can cause symptoms in a person, can also cure those same symptoms, if given in the correct dosage. Homoeopathic medicine considers the whole person. Remedies are selected to match your physical, mental and emotional symptoms.
Naturopathy is a wholistic system of medicine that acknowledges the innate intelligence our body has to heal itself when provided with all the raw material it needs and when obstacles that hinder this same process are removed. It helps to educate you in healthy eating and lifestyle patterns that promote good health by ensuring your body has what it needs to function well and removes unhealthy eating and lifestyle patterns that work against you. Naturopathy uses herbal medicines, food as medicine, supplements and lifestyle changes, to assist your body in achieving balance and good health. It’s also an excellent foundation for preventative medicine.
