Behavorial Conditions

 

 

1 in 10 Americans suffer from depression at some point in their lives. This number is growing by about 20% each year. Anxiety is even more prevalent, with 1 in 5 Americans suffering symptoms of clinical anxiety. Together, they make up the two most common mental illnesses in the US. But the daunting fact is, only about 80% of those who suffer from depression and anxiety are being actively treated.

Although western medicine has made many serious advances in the understanding and treatment of anxiety and depression, many of the treatments still come with some hair-raising side effects, including weight gain, nausea, fatigue, insomnia, and blurry vision. Sometimes, the side effects of medication for treating anxiety and depression are anxiety, depression, and even suicidal tendencies!

Chronic Conditions

 

 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraines, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia--these are only some among a long list of chronic illnesses that affect millions of Americans today. The unfortunate thing these chronic conditions have in common is the lack of treatments that are both effective and safe. In most cases, patients who suffer from one of these chronic illnesses can only get symptom management at best, and even that may come with many side effects from various pharmaceuticals.

More and more, people have discovered alternative types of treatments to better manage their chronic conditions. Among them, Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine (TCM) is one of the most frequently used holistic and alternative medicines. The reason for its efficacy may be because TCM uses individualized treatment plans that takes into consideration the body as a whole, targeting the root condition as well as the symptom manifestations.

“It’s hard to wait around for something that might never be, but it’s harder to let go when it is everything you ever wanted.”

If you are facing infertility, then you are probably no stranger to the physical, emotional, and financial toll that infertility can take. Perhaps you are just beginning your journey towards creating or adding to a family, or perhaps you have already taken many roads and are looking for a better, more effective option. Know that you are not alone. In fact, 1 in 6 couples in the United States face infertility. 

Some studies have shown that stress levels of infertile women are equivalent to those of women with cancer and heart disease. And according to WebMD statistics, even though the success rate of IVF is only about 29.9%, the cost of a typical round of IVF is more than 25% of the average person's annual income. When faced with these daunting facts, what if a simple, affordable treatment could reduce stress, boost fertility, and improve the IVF success rate by nearly 40%?
