General Health

We specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of chronic health issues.

At Maplewood Holistic Health, our goal is to diagnose, educate, and treat our patients so they feel better. Many of our patients are people who had been sick for years with acute or chronic health issues. They had been to other doctors and health professionals. And they were told nothing was wrong, or their test results came back within “normal range.” Without a diagnosis, they were not treated. And without treatment, their condition continued.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a different approach

This approach is known as functional medicine, an evidence-based approach that treats the body as an interconnected whole.  IT IDENTIFIES WHERE THE SYSTEM HAS BROKEN DOWN AND HOW THIS BREAKDOWN IS EFFECTING FUNCTION.

Where conventional medicine tends to isolate problems to certain organs or body parts, functional medicine evaluates the underlying imbalances in the body that cause certain patterns of symptoms. Both approaches are valid. Both have been proven to treat and manage health issues. The main difference is in the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

And one of the strengths of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that it treats the root causes of imbalances in the body, instead of just treating the symptoms. YOU FIX THE SYSTEM AND NORMAL FUNCTION IS RESTORED.

 

TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN YOUR HEALTH

We use acupuncture, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, bodywork, and herbal remedies to quickly and effectively treat chronic health issues.

But that is only part of any treatment plan. We educate our patients about their condition, and how simple changes can make a big difference in feeling stronger, happier, and healthier over time. We believe that factors such as getting enough sleep, successfully managing stress, eating certain foods (and avoiding others), and self-care all contribute to the healing process. As a result, we empower and encourage our patients to take a more active role in their healing and health.

We believe that when you know how to take care of what you can control in your health, you are better able to handle whatever is outside your control. And that gives you a sense of peace and empowerment, because you know you are doing everything you can to feel healthy, happy, and whole.
