Chinese Medicine works even better as preventative medicine. From the perspective of TCM, chronic and severe health conditions can often start with something as simple as a chill, a common cold, or traveling between varying climates. These pathologies and symptoms indicate a damage that has occurred to the immune system, and if left un-treated and unresolved could later lead to a more severe chronic illness, such as many autoimmune diseases. Treating conditions before they have the ability to manifest, is the best way to a ensure healthy long life! 

 

Chinese medicine is a complex and sophisticated natural medical system that has existed for thousands of years.  Chinese medicine is the primary medical system in many countries, and continues to successfully treat millions of people in our modern time.  The strength and efficacy of Chinese medicine originates in its longevity and the experience of the thousands of physicians in its long storied past.  

Chinese medicine works by restoring balance to human physiology, thus diminishing illness, and optimizing health.  Attuning the body to the individual's respective environment creates harmony and health naturally.  Chinese medicine accomplishes this by utilizing several clinical modalities, such as acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, and medical massage, and is ultimately maintained by lifestyle.

 

Herbal formulas are custom prepared for each individual's constitution and respective health concern.

Chinese herbal formulas are herbal blends based on ancient herb combinations that have been used for thousands of years.  Chad has studied in the Tian family lineage that is based on applying formulas utilizing the principles of the Shanghan Zabing Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage and Complex Disease), which was written ca. 200 A.D by Zhang Zhongjing.  

In this lineage, a radial pulse system is the guiding diagnostic principle used to derive herbal prescriptions from information that is directly relayed from the body to the practitioner.  This system has been effectively used on over a million patients in the past century alone.
