What is Constitutional and Functional Treatment? How Can It Benefit Me?
Homeopathy refers to the use of tiny white pills that dissolve in your mouth. They come in small blue tubes. We pick a homeopathic remedy that includes all your symptoms, including emotions, and personality traits. This is the deepest form of medicine I know of, based on my 30+ years of practicing functional holistic medicine.
Constitutional Chinese Herbs:
Using Chinese tongue and pulse diagnosis, we select a single Chinese herbal formula (either pills or powder) that matches your constitution from the point of view of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This single formula will help to bolster and support who you are on a deep level. Over time, you’ll begin to experience more energy, balanced hormones, better immunity, deeper sleep, mental clarity and balance.
Acupuncture works on many levels. When we use the constitutional approach, acupuncture works to balance your overall system. The result will be a boost in immunity, mental clarity, better ability to cope with stress, better sleep, and feeling more “grounded” and “in your body.”
Most dietitians are recommending diets based on the latest fads. But constitutional dietary recommendations are based on your Chinese Yin/Yang and Five Element Constitution, as well as on your blood analysis. We may also do stool testing for leaky gut syndrome and parasites, hair analysis testing to determine if you have mineral deficiencies or heavy metal toxicity. We may also perform saliva neurotransmitter testing to see if the chemicals in your brain are balanced correctly. Based on the analysis and the tongue and pulse diagnosis, we design the best diet for your constitution.
Similar to Constitutional Dietary Analysis: We determine which supplements are right for your specific constitutional type. We may use a few or all of the same diagnostic tools mentioned above. For supplements, we will also design an individualized program specific to your constitutional type.
