Let me share with you the medicine that I love to utilize in my practice. Through years of study and clinical application, I have developed a unique and effective blend of western medicine, homeopathy and acupuncture.
The typical patient I see is someone who has gone to a number of medical and holistic
practitioners. Often they have explored a variety of treatment options before considering my type of medicine.
Being the practitioner of last resort can make treatment and patient compliance tricky, as I am usually asked to fix conditions that have been a problem for many years.
Here is a typical case study:
Female (age 58) came with a history of chronic fatigue syndrome.
Her primary complaint was insomnia for the last eighteen years.
She has been for every treatment you can think of and landed at my office with generalised aches and pains, difficulty in concentration and focus, chronic sinusitis and allergies, fatigue, tinnitus and constipation to mention only a few. In addition, she was on a long list of prescribed medicine. It was not surprising that she was despondent and depressed.
In her case I combined my knowledge of western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and homeopathy. A very thorough and in-depth health history guided me to a diagnosis and treatment plan specifically customised for her.
She received acupuncture on her first consultation and left with homeopathic remedies. On her follow up visit a week later, she reported sleeping through the night for the first time in years.
She was no longer waking up hourly in pain and having to find a comfortable position again, and she was no longer awakened in the early morning hours and not being able to fall back asleep.
She had more energy, her muscle aches and pains were gone and overall she felt the best she had in years.
The homeopathic remedies and acupuncture were chosen to restore balance in her body by addressing the root cause. Correcting her entire condition is going to take time, but by relieving some of her symptoms so quickly in her complex case, is an encouraging start.
