:: Treatment Approaches ::

Body & Mind Integration
Dr. Martin uses a holistic approach to health, analyzing and diagnosing problem areas and symptoms from a broad perspective. Using the framework of classical homeopathic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, his approach is to analyze all symptoms of imbalance in the body and the mind together. He appropriately integrates Western medical diagnostic techniques as well.

Acute Problems
Under this treatment option, he will help you to eliminate your current problems. This approach is based on the Western medical model of treating the symptoms only.

Chronic and Constitutional Treatment
Under this type of approach, you will be treated for your “basic predisposition” to illness. Dr. Martin will rely more heavily on your family history and tongue and pulse diagnosis, working holistically to prevent future health problems from developing. All aspects and patterns from your current and past health history will be assessed and treated concurrently. Dr. Martin will work with you to assess which healing techniques are best suited to your particular problems.

Specialities
Dr. Martin’s specialty is the treatment of women’s health problems, including, but not limited to endometriosis, PMS, cysts, fibroids, cramps and menopause. He also treats skin problems, all types of pain, immunity and digestive problems. Treating children for most childhood illnesses, ear, nose and throat infections and behavioral problems is also a vital part of his practice.
