Fatigue is perhaps the most common complaint of modern times. Treatment protocols and the therapies prescribed depend on what lies beneath the symptom of fatigue, this of course varies from one individual to another.

MOOD DISORDERS, ANXIETY AND INSOMNIA

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • “Looping” thoughts
  • “Wired” feeling

Western medicines treatment of Mood Disorders is based on the Ancient Greek assumption that mind and body are separate. This paradigm has never existed in Chinese Medicine or any other Traditional Medicine for that matter: Rather the wellness or dis-ease of the mind or body are seen as the expression of the quality and flow of Qi (energy). Thus treating Mood Disorders is no different than treating any other condition using the Traditional Chinese Medical Model.

Moreover, recent studies in the fields of methylation, pyroles, heavy metals and the “gut micro-biome” have given Natural Medicine practitioners new tools to treat these conditions successfully.
