NATURAL MEDICINE IS SAFE AND EFFICACIOUS

Natural medicine is safe and highly efficacious and has withstood the test of time. At Agape Acupuncture, Inc., the treatments are tailored for each patient, realizing that each person needs quality care that is right for their body. We understand that each individual’s needs are different and their body works uniquely, so we craft custom treatment plans that will be effective for you. Natural medicine successfully treats a wide range of diseases and it is the most researched medical system in the world. With over 4,000 years of success, natural medicine has treated more individuals than all other types of medicine combined. Acupuncture has been well known for its reconciliation of our design and for normal functioning of the body. It treats a wide range of illnesses from moderate cases to the very difficult and is an excellent avenue to help patients promote, maintain and restore health based upon the principles of natural medicine.

For over 200 years, standard medical treatment in the United States and in the majority of the world has been solely based on chemical drugs and surgical procedures – a sign that the medical system is failing. It is concerning to all when doctors are not treating the real cause of the disease and are instead covering up symptoms and masking the pain. The 21st century is to refocus and redirect medicine, and many are turning back to traditional natural medicine – a development to address the gaps in modern medicine.   Drugs and surgeries are not the first choice for many patients these days. Natural Medicine, such as acupuncture and herbs, are what they are turning to more and more. Most reason being that Natural Medicine is in reality less costly, less painful, and far less side effects than chemical medications and caustic surgeries. The other factor is that acupuncture helps in their recovery from chronic debilitating ailments, including degenerative diseases, difficult diseases and chronic relentless pain. Times have changed and it is bringing back natural treatments methods and promoting the body’s own healing capabilities. The United States and worldwide have seen a great demand for this way of medicine – unparalleled in history of medicine.   Preventative medicine and natural medicine are key in improving the quality of life. The millions of baby-boomers are looking into traditional natural medicine to stay healthy and overcome illness or pain management issues that have beset their lives. “Due to the managed healthcare systems, the red-tape, the lack of proper care, and the perceived coldness and remoteness of the modern medical system, many Americans are becoming fed-up.” (Time Magazine, November, 1998) People have decided that surgeries and drug medications are not the answers to being healthy or overcoming their illnesses. These factors are the reasons why consumers have made Natural Medicine not just a trend but the way to achieve and receive treatment for healing and health maintenance.

WHAT IS NATURAL MEDICINE?

Researched and established for over 4000 years, Natural Medicine is the longest practiced and most used medical system. Natural Medicine is the grandfather of all medicines and it is traditional in every sense of the word. Most people think of it as complimentary medicine or alternative medicine but it is not. Natural medicine has treated more patients than all systems of medicine combined. It has a wealth of knowledge to share, thousands of years of wisdom to impart, and treatment methods that have been time proven through case histories.

Treating the entire body as an functioning unit is called WHOLISTIC medicine. This is where the word “wholistic” stems from because it considers the whole entire body as a functioning unit: mind, body and spirit. Natural Medicine is just that, there is nothing magical or mystical about it. It originated in Eastern asia, mainly China, and is now utilized in countries, such as Switzerland, United States, Canada, Russia, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Mexico, China, Korea, Japan, India, Germany, France, Britain, and Australia. It is widely used all over the world as a part of mainstream medicine. In the United States, it is being increasingly sought after, and according to Time Magazine (Fall, 1996), over 13 billion dollars are spent out of pocket by Americans annually.

It is not just people in the United States but also people in other countries that are becoming concerned with the side effects of drug medication and the complications that same times accompany them. An article in the Los Angeles Times (Dated April 15th 1998) stated that, even though the drug medications were properly prescribed, over 100,000 patients death’s were reported. In another article reported by, JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) in April, 1998 that approximately 76,000 to 137,000 patients died in 1994 from drug medication prescribed by their physicians. The correlation to numbers of the deaths from adverse reactions would make it between the sixth and fourth leading cause in the United States.   Negligence has been a leading cause in the death’s of 300,000 patients in hospitals when they were under medical supervision.  In a article by Time Magazine “Special Issue”, Fall 1996 reported that the above number is five times greater than the American that died in the Vietnam War. In 2010, years after the original articles were written, an analysis in the New England Journal of Medicine found that, despite efforts to improve patient safety in the past few years, the health care system hasn’t changed much at all. (New England Journal of Medicine, November 25, 2010).   We realize the healing capabilities found within the body as natural medicine is applied in treating diseases. Over the years we have seen for ourselves and have been given testimonies from patients that have been healed and how natural medicine has benefited them with their illnesses. Here at Agape Acupuncture we are thankful to the Lord for entrusting us with these patients. Natural medicine is both safe and effective by itself and it also works along side with modern medicine. In our clinic, we pray for our patients daily and when the opportunity arises, we share our faith with our patients and staff.

People seek after natural medicine for its methods of treatment are being both safe and effective. The harshness of drugs, and irreversible procedures, such as surgery are not involved. Natural Medicine’s main component is that it releases the body’s own healing power to help fight off diseases. When the immune system of the body is weak, illnesses will occurred. With the placement of natural medicine, it increases the body’s strength and balances its functions, which allows for the ailment to be eliminated naturally. The body should not to be easily cut into and vital components to be cut out. We believe that surgeries are always the last option because it is a death sentence to that organ and/or organ system. At the end, the patient has two choices in medicine for their health and well-being – one way is with natural healing the other is with unnatural drugs and surgeries.

Natural medicine encompasses acupuncture treatments, acupressure, herbs, herbal teas, micro-circulation treatments, Tui-Na (therapeutic massage), aromatherapy, magnetic therapy, food therapy, nutrition, hydrotherapy, biofeedback therapy, physical exercise, and more.

Natural medicine is traditional medicine, and should not be deemed alternative or complimentary medicine. There is nothing magical or mystical about it, and historically has stood the test of time!   The category of diseases that Natural Medicine is able to treat is vast from headaches to heel spurs and everything in between. Treatment for the cause of diseases through Natural Medicine, Degenerative Diseases, Reproductive Disorders – Male and Female System Disorders, Cardiovascular Disorders, Visual Disorders, Digestive Disorders, Bone and Joint Disorders, Immune and Auto Immune Disease   The Medical Chinese Classics' explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others.

IS NATURAL MEDICINE CREDIBLE?

Over 4,000 years of history for this traditional medicine that has been practiced and used more than all medical systems combined. Natural Medicine has proven is creditability and stood the test of time to be the longest and most widely used medicine. All studies and application have been used on humans only. Natural medicine did not thrive on animal testing nor did it derive its efficacy from the responses from animals.  Natural Medicine treatment methods have been time proven through human case histories. The safety and effectiveness of Natural Medicine when applied by a licensed professional has vast benefits for patients.
