Traditional Chinese Medicine is a form of health care that has been used effectively for nearly 5,000 years. Today it is used by approximately 50% of the world population. This ancient medicine is based on the principles of Vital Energy or Qi (Chee). Qi helps to animate the body and protect it from illness, pain, and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quantity, quality, and balance of Qi in their body. Qi circulates through pathways in the body called meridians. Each meridian connects to specific organs and glands. When Qi flows freely through the meridians, a person enjoys good physical health, and a state of mental and emotional well-being. If the flow of Qi is obstructed, the nourishment the body requires to function optimally is not distributed, and disharmony occurs. As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I seek to affect the flow of Qi and access the body’s innate healing ability. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, along with the adjunctive therapies: cupping, moxibustion, massage, and dietary therapy are used together to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Chinese herbal medicine can be used to expedite the healing process and to strengthen the body. By choosing the precise and most effective herbs a practitioner can target a patient’s individual health problem. Formulas are prescribed in a pill or powder form.

Chinese medicinal herbs | Eugene, Or
I began to work with Heidi in the 8th week of my pregnancy, when I was suffering a few of the discomforts common to the first trimester; nausea in the mornings; yielding to cravings rather than making good food choices, bloating and sluggish digestion; lack of energy, and general fatigue. After my first visit with Heidi I felt an immediate physical benefit and over the next several days my energetic and emotional outlook shifted and I felt more inclined to nurture myself and prove myself with the optimal nutritional and herbal support to feel well. Over the next few weeks and several visits, all of my complaints diminished and I felt like I was back “in charge” of my body, eating sensibly, and enjoying moving my body again. I know that women can be unlucky enough to suffer through the entire first trimester and sometimes into their 4th and 5th months; I am so glad that I had the access to wellness care that turned my situation around and now in my 13th week I am described as having a “radiant glow” and I feel happy, balanced, strong and supported.
