How Does This System Work? It has been scientifically determined that human beings are actually unique bio-energetic systems. For thousands of years, Oriental Medicine has acknowledged that there is a vital life force that flows through all things which is called “Qi”. In the west, it is often referred to as “energy”.
What is Functional medicine? It is a form of preventative medicine that focuses on helping the body remain ”functional” without the use of surgeries and medications. Too often we fall into states of chronic illness where heavy medication or surgeries are the only offered solutions. The object of functional medicine is to help the patient avoid these problems.
Energy (Qi) flows along pathways in the human body, which are related to the organs and the tendo-muscular system. When the balance of this energy is disturbed, pain or illness results. This can be due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, hereditary conditions, environmental factors, or excessive emotional issues. Oriental Medicine focuses on correcting these energetic imbalances by breaking up any obstruction and encouraging an even flow of Qi, which stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
