"Asian medicine, which includes acupuncture, acupressure and Asian herbs and foods, is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for thousands of years. According to traditional Asian medicine, when your energy flow, or qi (pronounced ‘chi’) is out of balance, your body cannot adapt to stress, making you more likely to develop chronic illness and pain. A harmonious flow of qi, achieved by balancing cold and heat, internal and external, yin and yang, will help sustain your long-term physical, mental and emotional health.  Homeopathic medicine: using diluted doses of natural substances, homeopathic medicine gently stimulates your immune system, and rebalances your body and mind. While conventional medicines often cover symptoms, homeopathic medicine relieves your symptoms by correcting their root cause";
