Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is based upon the theory of Yin and Yang.  Yin and Yang are opposites in their function, energetics and form and do not exist separate from each other.  TCM consists of Acupuncture, Chinese herbal remedies and Tuina Chinese Massage.  This system of medicine in thousands of years old and very different from western medicine, it has demonstrated it’s effectiveness in treating virtually all health complaints.

At the clinic I predominately use the theory of TCM with the use of western herbs, homeopathics and minerals.

Homotoxicology or modern homeopathy considers the symptoms as an expression of toxicity in the body.  Toxic expressions are categorized into a six-phase table such as excretion, inflammation and deposition phases.  Homotoxicology is primarily about removing toxic stressors and reactivating functions.

Oligotherapy was developed by Dr. Jacques Menetrier of France and views disease as an expression of trace mineral imbalance based upon a person’s predisposition, which he termed the reactive syndromes as well as the presenting illness.  Trace elements are considered the “spark plugs of life”.  They help create the combustion of nutrients into tissue and energy.  These minerals regulate the body through their direct action on the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system.

Metabolic Typing or MetT was developed by Stephen O’Neill is a system of differential diagnosis based upon ones endocrine dominance.  Each metabolism has a different predisposition to health complaints and therefore different nutrient requirements.  An individual and their disease expression is considered as sympathetic or a fast metabolism such as hyper thyroid or para-sympathetic dominant or a slow metabolism such as hypothyroid.  MetT incorporates endocrinology, TCM and Oligotherapy and is especially useful in chronic conditions.
