“Protecting a healthy person from disease is a rewarding task for a doctor.” This philosophy by Laotse reflects how I see my role as a doctor. My goal is to raise awareness of how our lifestyle affects our health, enabling you to develop healthy behaviors and skills for effective self-care. A thorough review of a patient’s medical history, skillful diagnostics and personal care are the key aspects of preventive medicine.
Prevention plays an important part in Chinese Medicine. This medical system has developed diagnostic tools which enable us to detect deviations from ‘the norm’ at a very early stage. The gentle but effective therapeutic techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine allow an imbalance to be corrected before it becomes a more serious disease.
My Hormone Clinic aims to prevent hormonal imbalances and recognize hormonal deficiencies or excesses at an early stage. Our hormonal system has far-reaching effects on the way our body functions. Complaints relating to menstruation, menopause (women and men) and thyroid function are common and can be successfully treated with a proper diagnosis.
WHEN OUR BODY TALKS...
Every chronic illness has early warning signs that we too often ignore. Recognizing these signs is important. Some complaints that could point towards an imbalance are:
a sense of being unwell, having gone ‘off track’
feeling disconnected with what is really important in life, loss of focus
increased tiredness and exhaustion
finding it hard to motivate yourself, feeling as though everything is an effort
recurrent headaches and other recurrent pains
feeling of restlessness or finding it difficult to relax
palpitations and feeling anxious easily
feeling as though something is stuck in your throat, difficulty breathing
changes in bowel habits, feeling nauseous or bloated
increased or decreased appetite
unspecific complaints such as dizziness, numbness, increased sweating
having difficulty falling asleep or sleeping through the night
low immune system with frequent coughs and colds
having difficulty keeping up with the tasks of everyday life and generally a low stress tolerance
