The body does not passively soak up toxins like a sponge. It has defenses and resources which constantly act even while you sleep. When toxins enter your body, these are swiftly dealt with, provided there is an efficient response.

So the younger and healthier you are, the better your body will be at getting rid of these poisons and the less damage your body is likely to suffer. The older or less healthy you are, the poorer is this protective response and the greater is the possibility of damage occurring to your body. The elimination of toxins from your body is not just a simple method of getting rid of poisons which arrive uninvited in food, drink or air, or though contact with your skin. It is a non-stop campaign to get rid of your toxic debris left over from the very act of living. The complex process of detoxification involves the immune system (especially the white blood cells), the lungs, kidneys, bowels, liver and the skin. Looking after all these complicated activities is the mind.

The process of energy generation in which raw materials such as fats, proteins and sugars are broken down and used to energise the body leave wastes behind just as ash is left behind after a cigarette burns. This is one of the major sources of toxic waste in your body.

Women’s wellness

Natural medicine has focused on women’s health for thousands of years. Many of the gynecological conditions that affect women today were discussed in early Chinese medical texts. Women of all ages can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) care.

We may do a variety of testing procedures to identify the nature of the problems.

For young women just beginning menstruating, acupuncture can help relieve menstrual cramps and the many symptoms associated with PMS. Many times women are told that cramps and symptoms of PMS are a normal part of being a woman. With natural medicine treatments many of the symptoms usually begin to quickly disappear.

Chronic menstrual problems like fibroids and endometriosis respond well to more long term care of acupuncture and herbal medicine. For women in menopause, treatments can greatly reduce hot flashes and night sweats to make this time of transition more comfortable. Treatments focus on stopping excessive sweating and restoring restfulness.
