Facts on Alternative & Complimentary Therapeutics

Alternative and complimentary therapies bolster our self-healing abilities. These therapies protect the body from the toxic side effects normally associated with conventional medical treatment, as well as from the harmful exposure of environmental toxins. From over-the-counter-antacids to prescription pain killers and anti-inflammatories, your immune system is being sent confusing messages while being impaired from doing its job.

Perhaps this is why the immune system breaks down and attacks the healthy cells in the body. Why and how does an autoimmune disease like cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia or lupus erythematosus originate in the body? It is genetic? Is it environmental? Or is it a combination of factors creating miscommunication from intercellular messengers?

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been revered in China for over 5,000 years as an ancient powerful healing system that helps maintain health and well-being. TCM promotes the healthy functioning of all the organ systems of the body. Chinese herbal formulas are designed to strengthen, build and replenish the vital life force of Qi in order to promote balance and harmony in our bodies.

Today TCM is being acknowledged and researched in Western culture as it begins to bridge the gap between ancient herbal wisdom and modern medical science.

Yin, Yang and Qi Energy

Yin and Yang represent the opposite but complementary forces that exist throughout the universe.

Qi is the dynamic energy force in all phenomena and contains the essence of both Yin and Yang.

The philosophy of TCM is founded in the principles of preserving the balance of Yin and Yang and maintaining the smooth flow of Qi within all of our internal organs.

Health conditions are viewed as an imbalance of these vital energies.

Establishing a healthy Qi flow and removing any blockage that may be interfering with the health of the individual governs the TCM healing process.

In August 2003, we had a seminar at Better Nutrition for the following conditions:

With Dr. Staś Ozog, Master Chinese LAC and Master in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MTOM), who is also the formulator of the Clear Products, I have found that Motion and Tinnitus helps with Vertigo and Dizziness and have received good feedback on it. Some foods also could aggravate this condition and also allergies and other things could bother some.

More mature people are susceptible to vertigo, which can be related to inflammation or infection of the ear, deterioration of nerve endings, etc...even hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
