The modern world has changed how we age. On one hand there are diagnostic tools that reveal our insides; potent pharmaceuticals to alter our physiology and psychology; and surgical procedures to remove poorly functioning body part. On the other hand, diabetes, heart disease, menopausal symptoms, circulatory problems, joint inflammation, digestive issues, cancer and many other conditions are on the rise.
Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, joint inflammation are conditions caused by modern conveniences. They are highly preventable, using lifestyle and nutritional changes. They are also naturally treatable through acupuncture, Bowen therapies, herbal treatments, cellular detoxification, and/or bio-identical hormone support.
Female and male hormone related concerns are first addressed by improving liver function, correcting nutritional deficiencies, then herbal support is added. On some occasions, minute amount of natural or bio-identical hormones are necessary to improve a true deficiency.
Joint surgery is a scenario facing some active mature adults. Osteoarthritis is a preventable joint inflammation caused by the wear and tear to major weight-bearing joints such as knee, hip, and spine. In individuals with poor physical alignment (e.g. favoring one leg due to sciatica pain) this joint degeneration accelerates. Dr. Shang has the experience to treat your body misalignment, to alleviate the cause of pain and minimize joint damage.
Nutritional deficiencies can be an important health concern among seniors. Appetite changes, heart burn, and other digestive upset compounds any poor food choices. By treating digestive issues and nutritional deficiencies, Dr. Shang will also help you find relief for muscle cramps, insomnia, anxiety, heart palpitation, anemia and rapid bone loss.
