Medicine

"The key to health lies in the regulation between

Yin and Yang.

Is the relation

between

Yin and Yang disturbed, it's like in a year there's spring 

but no winter

or a winter

but no summer."

"The only durability
is a constantly change."

The Traditional Chinese Medicine...

 

... is built on 4000 year old wisdom and unites in it's view of the human being body, ghost and soul. Humanity is supposed to live in a unity with nature, to walk it's paths and learns continuosly from it. The basement of Chinese Medicine is founded in the philosophy of Daoism (Dao = the path), also known as the "philosophy of serenity". Its stands for conservation and redefinition of soul's peace, inner balance, recollection of the main things in life and the serenity to take things as they come.

The well known symbol of Daoism is the Yin/Yang, which stands for female/male, darkness/light, inside/outside, rest/movement, cold/warm, silent/loud u.v.m., one can't exist without the other, they're in flow within each other and balance each other as well.

Diagnosis

 

The anamnesis and analysis of everone's personal health condition based on Chinese Medicine shows differeces in many points compared to our well known "western" diagnosis.

The diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine is meant to discover possibile imbalances in the cycles of the human system.

 

This is done by...

Anamnesis

Pulse diagnosis

Tongue diagnosis

Face diagnosis

 

 

By the analysis of the face and the tongue as well as the feeling of the pulse it's possible to figure out where these imbalances are located and how serious they seem to be. The anamnesis serves as a support of the diagnosis and offers the chance to explain personal matters of concern. 

Due to the consideration of all diagnostic parts, personal nutritional recommendations are handed over, which are supposed to lead the body back in it's original balance.

 

How can possible imbalances in the body system be expressed?

 

  • weight gain/weight loss
