Traditional Chinese Medicine on Dr. Oz


Ayurveda is an ancient healing tradition that views a person's physical and emotional well-being as being based on the proper balance of vital energies. Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine share this fundamental belief in the importance of balanced energies. As one might imagine, both of these traditions view weight fluctuations in terms of how balanced a person's mind, emotions, diet, digestion, metabolism and appetite are. Any imbalance here can lead to undesirable weight gain or weight loss. As the theory goes, only when the vital energies - in TCM, this energy is called "qi", and in Ayurveda, these multiple energies are called "doshas" - are properly balanced, will weight naturally come into balance, as well.


Ayurveda emphasizes how to adapt with nature to prevent the disease process from starting, and to ensure that health is maintained. Ayurveda offers three basic pillars: diet, sleep and exercise (yoga).

12 Reasons Why You Need a Website


Let's face it: We practice an ancient medicine in a modern world. You are not only a healer but also a business owner in a rapidly changing world that seems to gravitate more and more towards marketing online.

At this point, how good your website represents you will determine whether or not this "just looking" patient makes an appointment.


2) Lots of space for content                    

A website provides you with the space that a brochure, a business card or a newspaper ad cannot. When people are shopping for a practitioner online, the more information they can access about you and how you practice, the better.  How long you have been in practice, what got you into acupuncture, health issues you specialize in treating, etc are information that will attract your ideal patients to you...READ MORE!
