The ancient Chinese created a system of medicine thousands of years ago that is still used to this day. It has evolved over time and is still used effectively to treat modern diseases. Chinese medicine is only a part of a greater concept the ancient Chinese used to live their everyday lives. It is a branch that springs from a larger tree that encompasses all aspects of life. This is why the doctor of Chinese medicine does not only deal with the body, or physical aspects of one's health, they are teachers educating patients on how to live
a healthy and balanced lifestyle, because this is how we attain health, and the Chinese knew it.
It is deeply entrenched in their medicine.
In our clinic, we treat many patients who are experiencing back pain, which is not surprising since 80 percent of people experience back discomfort at some time
in their life. Part of our assessment process to get to the root of a patientís pain is examining the different muscles that play a role
in keeping your back and core strong.
Q:I used to eat all the right foods: yams, pumpkin soup, parsley, cilantro, green leafy vegetables, and almonds. Then I got a kidney stone.
All the foods that have been called healthy are now supposedly unhealthy. What are your thoughts on this?
A: It is true that some of these foods in high concentrations and under specific conditions may cause kidney stones. However, ruling out any serious conditions with the kidneys or congenital conditions, I believe the
cause for stone formation is probably due to lack of sufficient water intake. You need at least 80 ounces of fluids per day to properly flush out the kidneys.
