Health Detectives: Allies Through Your Wellness Adventure

2020 is the
year of the rat according to the Chinese zodiac and is forecast to be a strong,
prosperous and lucky year for all.  I
share this merely as a fun tidbit to muse over as I am contemplating the mind
boggling advancements we humans have made over the course of several
millennia.  It is increasingly common to
see doctors discussing the benefits of working collaboratively between numerous
medical perspectives and recommending adjunct care like acupuncture.  In fact, the acupuncture practiced today is
not entirely the same as what was practiced thousands of years ago.  One of the advantages to practicing an
ancient form of medicine is that we have had thousands of years to sort out
what works and what doesn’t.  Acupuncture
and Chinese Medicine have been constantly evolving with modern knowledge to
integrate many incredibly insightful observations from millennia past, with
what is being discovered in cutting edge research.  Perhaps more interestingly, modern research
is continually making discoveries, some seemingly obscure, that can be
explained by ancient theories of Chinese Medicine. 

In the past
it was commonly accepted that if you had a medical concern or question, you
would ask a doctor.  However, these days
the exceptionally encyclopedic knowledge of ‘Doctor Google’ often reigns
supreme.  As we are all no doubt aware,
the internet is full of good and bad information, but it’s not as simple as the
information being good or bad.  In the
wrong hands or the wrong situation, good information does not always do good
things.  It is common to see certain
viewpoints and wellness trends espoused as being universally beneficial by
people with little to no medical training, and as a result it is becoming
increasingly critical to have a medical team on your side to help you make
decisions with your long-term health and wellness in mind.  Remember that the average medical
professional spends the better part of a decade in full-time schooling just
training to become licensed.  It is these
thousands upon thousands of hours of training just to get into practice that
allow us to sort through the wreckage that is often found on the web. 

As a
practitioner, my experience and philosophy is that our body truly does have a
nearly limitless capacity to heal itself. 
In my practice, we have seen many a person vastly exceed the
expectations of their medical prognosis, and have even seen healing journeys
that defy all conventional wisdom.  We
help to unlock this potential by investigating the deeper underlying causes of
dysfunction and provide your body with the resources to engage its own internal
healing mechanisms.  And, above all, our
mission is to empower you with the knowledge and support to take your health
into your own hands.
