Preventative Healthcare is when a person seeks care for themselves before a sign or symptom arises in order to maintain their highest quality of health. When the body shows no signs or symptoms of a disease process the body can then:
Preventative healthcare can often keep a person from developing some future signs and symptoms of disease. Many people use Traditional Chinese Medicine as their only source of healthcare while others use it in conjunction with Western Medicine. Eating the proper nutritious foods, drinking plenty of water, exercising the body, eliminating stressors, and getting proper rest are important for health. Dr. Lisa believes that this alternative type of preventative healthcare is the key to vastly change the way we look and define health, by reducing the need for medications and surgeries in the future. In TCM, it is said that for every year a sign or symptom has taken time to develop into a disease process, that it takes a year to treat it.
What if there is nothing wrong
One might say, “There is Nothing Wrong with Me,” and that is perfect. Dr. Lisa experienced acupuncture for the first time in NY treating twice a week for 2 weeks even though “there was nothing wrong with her.” She was asked, “What if you could feel 10 times more dynamic than you already do?” Dr. Lisa was intrigued, then was amazed at how much better she felt even when “there was nothing wrong with her”. She felt: more relaxed, had more abundant energy, increased mental clarity, and a deeper sense of inner peace.
This type of medicine was exactly what she was looking for and was convinced to switch her studies from Western Medicine to Alternative, Energetic and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
