BENEFITS OF COMBINING NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE AND ACUPUNCTURE
When western and eastern medicine are combined naturally, wonderful observations from a clinical point of view are possible for one’s healing journey. They complement each other by helping with the maximum benefit of both worlds. Oftentimes, stress management can be the root cause to imbalance and symptoms a person may be experiencing. Acupuncture sessions create that time for the nervous system to decompress. That feeling of zen may last a few days up until the next visit. A patient’s perspective about their own healing can be supported with hopeful and positive thoughts by implementing an acupuncture treatment. Completing a tongue and pulse diagnosis during an acupuncture treatment, gives insight as to inner happenings in the body that otherwise would not be possible to gauge. This may include stagnation, heat, cold, excess or deficiency. These assessments can lead to recommendations that can be added to the Naturopathic Health Plan for optimal wellness results.
