Chronic Fatigue

In many cases, the fatigue is being caused by the excessive use of pharmaceuticals that the patient is taking, especially beta-blockers. With the permission and cooperation of the patient’s medical doctor, it is usually possible to reduce the number of drugs the patient is taking, especially those most responsible for the fatigue.

If the fatigue is not drug-related, then Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) is an excellent solution. Either the patient has too much toxicity in their system, or they are simply deficient of nutrients and low-level anemia is present. In either case, these problems can be improved using Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Patients come to us most often because Western Medicine is not very effective at treating IBS. TCM seeks out what we consider to be the causes of the problem, and treats those. We do not treat the symptoms of this disease. Typical causes of IBS as detected by TCM are:

  • Heat or Inflammation of the Large or Small Intestines
  • Emotional disturbances (either depression affecting the digestive system, or liver inflammation affecting the digestive system)
  • Overall weakness in the digestive system

Recovery time is usually one month of treatment for every year you have had the problem.
