Traditional Chinese Medicine as a Lifestyle Choice
Traditional Chinese Medicine is known in China more as what we now would call a “wellness” program: a system of maintenance and prevention, balance and general health. It is not just something that is only used in cases of acute illness or only for chronic disease or pain. It is a part of an integrated system of diet, exercise, spiritual, and mental health — based upon a consistent philosophical system.
Once your treatment at the China Institute of Traditional Medicine for a specific condition has been completed, you are encouraged to consider a regular treatment program of acupuncture and Chinese herbs (adjusted to your own individual needs) as an important component of your general program of physical, mental, and spiritual health. A holistic approach is beneficial in the treatment of disease or injury, and that approach is also necessary in maintaining general well-being.
Regular treatment by a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with the customary exercise, good nutrition, and good mental and spiritual health, can assure you a long and happy life.
Please talk to your doctor about the benefits of a continuing treatment program using Traditional Chinese Medicine. The success you will achieve in the process of treatment for a specific condition can then continue to be an ever-present part of a good and long life, as a regular part of your routine of exercise, good nutrition, and spiritual discipline.
