The heart of Traditional Chinese medicine is based upon a theory of diagnosis known as “root vs.branch”.  The formation of an effective treatment plan is dependent upon correct diagnosis;  this is true for Western allopathic medical treatment as it is for Eastern Alternative medicine.

In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) the translation of “root” would be the causation, and “branch” would be what is considered the symptoms of disharmony or disease.  It is believed that by treating the “root” of the problem, all the “branches” (symptoms) will be favorably affected.

Have you searched in vain for answers to difficult medical problems that have been resistant to treatment?

Western biomedicine can offer little relief for chronic conditions. Pain killers, and often surgery, are the usual treatments prescribed by MD’s.  Medications, that are often dangerous with serious contraindications, and invasive surgery which do not resolve the cause of the problem and can cause further health issues; these are not the best solutions.  There is another way to treat and rid yourself of these health problems.
