Working in very busy environments both on Maui and in Oahu Acupuncture & Herbal Clinics, I recognize that people usually embrace our medicine in times of crisis and often when other things they have tried did not help. They come to see us once things are out of control with significant health challenges, wanting relief.
I am aware that our modern culture is partly responsible for this over performing drive. As a society we all have to do more and get more, life is no longer simple. Nurturing our bodies with whole foods, feeding our mind and spirit with practices like qigong, meditation and yoga has become the practice of the few. As far as wholistic medicine is concerned, the first stage of healing, the primary step is correcting our diet. After that is underway, we can look to herbs and acupuncture for support.
Let us consider utilizing acupuncture and herbs as preventative medicine.
We can prevent illness and disease, our medicine has the ability to diagnose energetic imbalances in an organ system before symptoms manifest physiologically. In my direct clinical experience, when I treat someone constitutionally and prepare an herbal formula that addresses their constitutional imbalances, I am strengthening their system to resist pathogenic influences.
To our mainland friends who express an interest in preventative herbal care:
We can do this long distance. Submit the attached herbal intake form and I will put together and mail your herbal prescription.
Your herbal formula costs $20/week inclusive of my consultation.
