TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE IN TORONTO AND HAMILTON
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) looks at the body in a truly holistic way. Diagnoses are made based on a totality of symptoms. The theory and perspectives of TCM may differ from western medicine, but the evidence is just as strong. Historically, TCM has been used for at least 2200 years, and now mainstream medicine is incorporating it since scientific evidence has proven its worth.
Naturopaths are educated in TCM throughout our 4-year post graduate medical training. When you start working with me, we may rely exclusively on TCM or combine it with some of the other services I offer.
Traditional Chinese Medicine relies heavily on the medical history as well as the signs and symptoms. Treatment can include Chinese herbal formulas as well as acupuncture, cupping, moxa and dietary changes.
