Nutritional medicine addresses both nutritional and environmental factors when considering an individuals health.
Food is the foundation of our physical body and when the correct balance of foods, vitamins and minerals are supplied we remain healthy. Each person is unique in terms of metabolism, genetics, anatomy and biochemistry as well as the micro biome, and immune system responses. These factors affect our ability to process foods, detoxify and expel wastes and absorb nutrients.
Acupuncture is one component of an ancient medicine, often referred to as TCM or traditional Chinese medicine. When a very fine needle is inserted into specific points on the body, the flow of Qi, a type of electrical current or energy that travels all over the body, is regulated. The channel pathways or meridians that Qi uses to navigate the body are what connects acupuncture points to the body’s tissues and organs, which influences the body’s natural healing response and its ability to restore physical, emotional and mental balance.
