Integrative Medicine at East West Healing Solutions

Helping You Reach Optimum Health Using the Best of Western and Eastern Integrative Medicine

Good health is an investment you consciously make once you realize that your health dictates how you live your life. You decide to stay as healthy as possible for several reasons: to live longer and experience more that life has to offer, to feel better about yourself physically, to improve your mental health, to have more energy to enjoy activities, and to keep yourself out of the hospital and keep medical costs down, among other things. However we simply cannot control everything that happens around us and the elements we are exposed to; eventually, we end up having to deal with some form of illness or injury.  An integrative medicine approach can help you stay healthy and heal quicker when faced with an unexpected health issue.

Sometimes, sickness or injury comes when you least expect it or at the most inopportune time. If not treated immediately with proper medication or therapy, some injuries and illnesses can last longer and can have drastic effects on your body. While Western medicine is the conventional and dominant form of health care used to treat all illnesses and injuries in the USA, the integrative medicine of the East can also be very helpful in obtaining optimum health.

Oriental healing methods including acupuncture, herbal prescriptions and several different types of manual therapies, when administered by a professional acupuncturist, can serve as one of many effective ways to help improve one’s health and help treat particular illnesses.

Eastern integrative medicine uses a holistic health approach, focusing on all aspects of the patient’s needs and providing treatments focusing not only on the symptoms but also addressing the source of the problem. Oriental medicine has been said to have helped many obtain good health for thousands of years.

East West Healing Solutions strongly believes and encourages their patients to consider a integrative medicine approach when it comes time to handle their health plan. Dr. Marie Perkins has witnessed over the years, faster, better and longer lasting results in her patient’s health when Eastern Medicine was used simultaneously with well-known treatments from conventional Western Medicine.
