Chinese herbal medicine: It can help detoxifications and rebuild the harmonized relationships between different organs.

Auricular (Ear) acupuncture: The macrocosm of the full body’s meridians can be represented in the microcosm of the ear. Therefore, the stimulation of certain points on the ear can achieve the result of stimulating the Qi of whole body.

Cardiovascular Conditions

Chinese Medicine Perspective

  • Heart is central to this condition, but Liver, Spleen, Kidneys, Lungs, Stomach also play a prominent role.
  • Lung Qi and Heart Qi are the power to push blood through the blood vessels. If they are weak, there will be blood stagnation.
  • The stomach also affects the Heart and blood circulation. The contraction and dilation of vessels are affected by stomach Qi. By treating stomach, we can support the heart and invigorate blood circulation.
  • Heart Yang deficiency causes poor circulation with the symptoms of cold limbs, pale complexion.
  • Spleen deficiency causes phlegm obstruction with the symptoms of chest tightness, swelling.
  • Liver qi stagnation causes blood stasis with the symptoms of chest pain, blood clots.
  • Kidney can nourish and control heart. Ageing can decrease kidney function and further causes cardiovascular conditions.

Eye, Ear, Nose, Throat, Tongue, Mouth

Chinese Medicine Perspective

  • Liver channel opens its orifice at Eyes. The eyes reflect the state of the mind, Spirit and essence. Many eye conditions can be treated through liver.
  • Kidney channel opens its orifice at Ears. Ear conditions such as Tinnitus, Meniere’s disease, vertigo, deafness often can be treated through kidney.
  • Lung channel opens its orifices at Nose. Repeated invasions of external wind impair the diffusing and descending of Lung qi. Nasal conditions such as sinusitis, rhinitis often can be treated through lung.
  • Heart channel opens its orifice at tongue. Too much heart fire caused from stress, anxiety and over thinking can lead to tongue ulcer.
  • Spleen channel opens its orifice at mouth. Spleen deficiency can cause immune system impaired with the symptoms of mouth ulcer, low grade fever, insomnia, loose stools, poor appetite, etc.
  • Throat is the gate of lung and stomach; it is closely relevant to Kidney. Exterior pathogenic invasion can cause sore throat. But sore throat also can be the signal of kidney problems.

Fertility and Pregnancy

Gastro-intestinal Conditions

Chinese Medicine Perspective

  • The healthy gastro-intestinal function depends on the qi ascending of spleen and the qi descending of stomach.
  • External pathogenic factors such as damp weather can block spleen qi ascending thereafter cause the failure of stomach qi descending, then cause vomiting, diarrhoea, bad breath, etc.
  • Internal pathogenic factors such as over eating or starving can do the same damage.
  • Unhealthy lifestyle such as stress can cause liver qi stagnation which will overact on spleen with the consequence of dysfunction of spleen and stomach. The common symptoms include belching, hiccup, nausea or vomiting.
  • Heart fire can enter into small intestine and contribute to Crohn’s disease.
  • Lung and large intestine has a close relationship. Constipation is never just the problem of intestine.
  • Spleen is the source for Qi and blood production which are the power for defence and repair. Spleen deficiency accounts for many conditions such as chronic fatigue, digestive ulcer, diarrhoea, IBS, etc.
  • Spleen is the centre of the relationship of five important organs (Heart, Liver, Spleen, Lung, Kidney), therefore, could be the etiologic factor to the problems of other organs. Vice verse, other organ problems can cause gastro-intestinal conditions via spleen.

Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is a unique medical system that has 5000 years of history. By observing the relationship between the universe and human body, under some key Chinese philosophies such as Yin Yang, Five elements and Taoism, it has developed series theories such as Qi, Zang Fu, Meridians, etc. With the guidance of those philosophies and theories, patients will receive pattern differentiation diagnosis and treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tui na, dietary therapy, etc. Nowadays, thanks for the developing of new technology, some types of treatment methods such as electro-acupuncture and TDP therapy have been added in, but all of them are still within the framework of Chinese medicine.
