FAQ - Our Clinic
Though many of our clients are from Missouri, people travel from all over the United States to visit our health clinic. Many have traveled as far as Oregon and New York to work with us to restore health and balance to their lives.
The Kangan Alkaline Ionized Water System was developed in Japan to treat the over-polluted waters in the cities and provide healthy water for hospital patients. The Kangen System produces pure water that works to restore the body’s pH levels by removing all of the contaminants while breaking down the large clusters of water molecules, retaining the important minerals, and changing the pH of the water. Kangen water is also a very potent anti-oxidant – boasting 7-10 times the antioxidant power of green tea. It is a fantastic way to detoxify and hydrate your body naturally.
We are pleased to offer Kangen water to our clients free of charge. We have installed the Kangen Alkaline and Ionization System in our office for the benefit of everyone, and to complement our health treatments.
FAQ - Chinese Medicine
- What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
- How does TCM work?
- How does TCM complement other health and medical treatments?
At the heart of TCM is the idea that the root cause of illnesses must be treated for an individual to heal. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine take a holistic approach to health, as they take every aspect of a person – body, mind, spirit, and emotions – into account during the healing process.
A TCM practitioner makes diagnoses by taking into account the patient’s past and present symptoms and complaints, personal and family medical history, a physical assessment of the body, the social and natural environment, lifestyle, thoughts and emotions, as well as an observation of facial and tongue characteristics and by reading the pulse.
FAQ - Acupuncture
Acupuncture was first introduced – quite successfully – to conventional medicine as a form of anesthesia and pain control in military operations in the field. Evidence for this can be found in many professional medical journals regarding the study of acupuncture-assisted surgery. It has been proven that pain can be blocked and pain-numbing endorphins can be produced with the aid of acupuncture.
