Utilizing a unique combination of Korean constitutional, traditional
Chinese medicine, pulse and tongue diagnosis and Five Element theory,
Dr. Martin creates a treatment program specifically designed for your
Utilizing Yin / Yang theory, the Five Elements of Oriental Medicine,
blood testing, hair analysis and body typology, Dr. Martin determines
which food types and supplements are best suited to support and
strengthen your particular body and constitutional needs.
of Healing Modalities
Dr. Martin's holistic approach includes the analysis of relevance and
appropriateness for various kinds of healing modalities.
Sometimes using classical and constitutional homeopathy and at other
times using homeopathy to treat acute health problems, Dr. Martin's
homeopathic approach will help to initiate a deep level of healing
within your body, mind, and spirit. Homeopathic remedies are made from
extremely small amounts of either plant, mineral or animal substances
and will catalyze your immune system to help you heal yourself.
Classical and constitutional homeopathy are Dr. Martin's love in life
and his specialty.
The most effective, deepest acting
treatment; uses minuscule amounts of plant, animal or mineral
substances to stimulate the body to heal itself; the prescription is
based on a complete evaluation of all physical, emotional, intellectual
and spiritual patterns in an individual. In Classical Homeopathy, we
use the emotional symptoms to point us in thedirection of where to
treat the imbalance in the body. Symptoms become metaphors, or symbols,
for where imbalances are, either emotionally or spiritually. For
example, asthma might be used as an indication of some long-standing
unresolved grief or loss; urinary tract infections, a symbol of
suppressed anger or resentment; low back pain could be a sign of fear
or feelings of being overwhelmed, etc.
Your physical symptoms will all eventually be cured using Classical
Homeopathy, but as a part of the process, you will also feel much
better and happier emotionally. This type of treatment will take from
six months to two or more years. Training to become a Classical
Homeopath takes many years of study and is highly specialized. Most
good Classical Homeopaths study for at least five years before getting
good results. Few homeopaths have the patience to dedicate their lives
to this type of intensive in-depth study and discipline.
Similar to Classical Homeopathy, but
in some homeopathic circles, this term is used to describe a method
where only one, single remedy is used throughout one’s
In reality, each person has many constitutional layers and requires
many remedies in their life. Constitutional Homeopaths use only one
dose of one remedy. In reality, as we evolve, we often need to move
from one remedy to the next, (even though in some cases, we may need to
stay on only one remedy for a number of years,) and may need to take
the remedy on a daily basis.
In acute homeopathic prescribing, we
don’t place an emphasis on the emotional factors involved in
disease; rather, we directly treat, and place our emphasis on removing
the physical symptoms as quickly as possible. We do, however, look at
the causal factor, which in many cases does include an emotional
component. For instance, did the cold or flu begin from the emotional
stress of a broken relationship, when out in a cold, rain or wind or
was the cause from lack of sleep and reduced resistance to infection?
Is the constipation caused from a difficulty in letting go, a craving
for meat or from not drinking enough water. Acute homeopathy will treat
every physical symptom known to man, and treat it quite effectively,
and in most cases very quickly. But it won’t be along-term
cure as in Classical Homeopathy.
This encompasses many disciplines and
treatment types, including acupressure massage, acupuncture, Chinese
nutritional medicine, Chinese manipulation(similar to chiropractic) and
Chinese herbal medicine. There are many different ways to practice
Oriental Medicine, including Five Element Theory, Yin/Yang Theory,
Acute prescribing and Korean constitutional prescribing. I use TCM, or
Traditional Chinese Medicine most, and place an emphasis on the pulse
and tongue diagnostic methods. I do not believe in the use of highly
technical computer analysis, but use the more traditional techniques of
facial observation and Five Element analysis which have been
effectively used for thousands of years to diagnose and treat
Chinese Herbal Medicine
This method of herbal medicine is
based on the diagnostic methods described in the paragraph above on
Oriental Medicine. In this case, however, we use herbs, in addition to
or instead of acupuncture, to create the most dramatic and quick
curative action that is possible.
Chinese herbology usually utilizes formulas containing many different
herbs rather than just the individual herbs used in the Western
approach. This method is very effective in treating chronic illness and
preventing future illness from occurring.
There are wonderful Chinese herbal formulas for almost every type of
illness, ranging from high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, high
cholesterol, migraine headaches, PMS, ADD, insomnia, colitis, allergies
and many other illnesses that plague modern society and which have no
know cure in Western medicine.
Western Herbal Medicine
This approach to herbal medicine uses
herbs primarily found on the North American and European continents.
This method generally uses single herbs in order to achieve very
specific results. There are wonderful single herbs such as Vitex, Dong
Quai, Echinacea, Astragalus, Goldenseal, White Willow Bark, Milk
Thistle and others, which can be used to build immunity, balance
hormones and eliminate many types of pain.
Five Element Acupuncture
This method of diagnosis andtreatment
utilizes the Five Elements of Earth, Fire, Water, Metal and Wood. The
Five Elements are a metaphor for the five primary organ functions in
the body: spleen/stomach, heart/small intestines, kidney/bladder,
lung/large intestines, and gall bladder/liver. Each organ and grouping
of organs has an emotional component as well. Utilizing this type of
understanding, we can treat constitutionally as well as symptomatically.
This method utilize specific
acupuncture formulas which are designed to treat the acute problems you
want to treat. This is the type of acupuncture that most medical
doctors study, since it only requires a few weekends of study. It
requires many years of concentrated study to practice the deeper-acting
Five Element and Constitutional acupuncture.
This method utilizes the tongue and pulse diagnosis to assess and then
design a treatment plan to treat from a deeper, more holistic framework
than the Acute Acupuncture approach. Many very serious and
evenlife-threatening health problems can be totally cured using this
Bio-chemical Nutritional Analysis
This method of analysis utilizes the
Health Equations Program to assess the functional status of your
electrolytes and minerals. We start from a Chem Panel and CBC and then
do a comprehensive analysis utilizing the basic data from your blood
Body-Type Nutritional Analysis
There are many types of Body-Type
Analysis. Just a few of the possibilities areYin/Yang and Five Element
Analysis,Endocrine Organ Analysis and Metabolic Typing, among others.
Five Element Nutritional Analysis
This is based on the Five Element
Analysis discussed above.
Yin/Yang Nutritional Analysis
This is based on assessing your
balance of Yin and Yang and working with the diet to change the
imbalance in Yin and Yang. If your Yin and Yang is in proper balance,
it’s very hard for you to become ill. Balanced Yin and Yang
is the foundation and cornerstone of balance and Optimal Health.
Vitamin & Mineral
In our culture, most people need
vitamin and mineral supplementation because very few of us eat
properly. In addition, most of us operate on such a high level of
stress that we need more of certain vitamins and minerals than in times
past. The soil our food is grown on is also almost totally depleted of
organic minerals and because of this we need to supplement our diets.
Even most organic food is not as complete as in times past.
A take-home test kit allows you to
obtain samples of your urine and saliva. These samples will tell the
lab which of your neurotransmitters are either high or low.
The types of problems that will respond very well to this type of
testing include anxiety, insomnia, ADD, ADHD, depression, fear, worry,
nervous disorders, headaches, chronic pain, PMS, Irritable Bowel,
Panic Attacks, Bulimia, OCD, and substance abuse.
The test results will be returned to you with a very specific list of
which amino acid supplements to take to increase the neurotransmitters
you are low in and to decrease the ones you are too high in.
Hormone Testing, Stool and Saliva
There are an assortment of other tests, which include stool, hair testing,
blood testing, and others. These may also be useful in helping to
determine where you are out of balance and which treatments will work
best to put you into balance.
Dr. Martin uses herbal medicine to complement and supplement the other
three healing modalities. Herbs are very gentle and one of the most
effective ways known to promote health and healing for problems ranging
from arthritis to weight loss, and everything in between.
(blood, hair, stool)
testing will tell you which minerals you are low or high in
and make suggestions for how to correct imbalances. It will also tell
your body is holding any heavy toxic metals in the tissues.
The Health Equations program is an
approximately eight page report which is based on the results of your
test. This analysis is invaluable in telling you the status of your
electrolytes, protein levels, hydration levels, and how your body is
functioning overall. It also makes dietary and supplement suggestions
on the test.
