Plant medicines have been used for thousands of years as powerful and effective treatments for physical ailments and disease. They have also been used to help the body achieve and maintain homeostasis by helping the body deal more effectively with stress in their environment. Botanical medicine is commonly used in naturopathic medicine to fight infections, reduce pain and inflammation, tone and heal body organs, increase energy, and induce relaxation and sleep.  In clinical practice, plants are used for ear infections and allergies to menstrual irregularities, insomnia, depression, high blood pressure, and many other conditions.  Botanical medicines come in many different forms, such as liquid extracts, capsules, tablets, or teas.  They are also incorporated into medicinal topical applications such as salves, creams, and oils.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which encompasses many different practices, is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 5,000 years. Today, TCM is practiced side by side with Western medicine in many of China’s hospitals and clinics.TCM emphasizes individualized treatment. Practitioners traditionally used four methods to evaluate a patient’s condition: observing (especially the tongue), hearing/smelling, asking/interviewing, and touching/palpating (especially the pulse).

These terms are generally used together to define any type of alternative medicine or non-conventional method of treatment. Complementary medicine alone can include alternative practices that are used along with conventional medicine. For example, the use of electro-acupuncture in which electrical stimulation is added to acupuncture needles would be a complementary treatment. Alternative medicine includes treatment methods used instead of conventional medicine, such as chiropractic medicine, nutritional supplementation, and diet-based therapy.

Whether suffering from musculoskeletal pain, chronic myofascial pain syndromes, migraines, or neuralgia, finding reliable long-term relief can be a challenge. Constant pain causes elevations in stress hormones that prevent healing and promote endocrine imbalance in the body. Significant pain reduction is necessary to begin the recovery process–pharmaceutical painkillers help our patients with severe pain to find relief int he early stages of treatment. With dedication, hard work and a bit of time, the underlying causes for pain can be addressed and the need for treatment reduced.
