Cain Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine is now known as Great Nature Oriental Medicine. This new name has great significance regarding the application of Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture, herbal prescriptions, massage, and mind-body exercises such as Taiji (Tai chi), to our daily lives, both in times of sickness, and more importantly, in times of health maintenance and sickness prevention. I will write more on the meaning behind the name change and the accompanying logo soon. For now, I'd really like to take the time to thank my wife for putting up with my seemingly never-ending mission to find a suitable name to represent my particular approach to this medicine. She was also part of the original logo design, an area where I truly needed her valuable input. I'd also like to thank my good friend and teacher Johnathan Lewis for converting the final logo into a suitable file type that I can use in many different aspects of my business, both online and offline.
Acupuncture in Cardiology
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are effective at treating a very broad range of conditions, from allergies to heart conditions, and so much more in between. The link below will take you to an article written by a very highly-esteemed Western medical doctor who specializes in cardiology (the heart and its related systems). He mentions a particular patient with an irregular heartbeat, and how, even after a year of trying different medications, this condition was not brought under control until she started getting acupuncture treatments on a regular basis.
The Dr. also highlights the usefulness of acupuncture in treating a number of other cardiovascular conditions, namely chest pain and congestive heart failure, as well as the importance of smoking cessation via acupuncture and how this can to lead improved cardiovascular health. You can find the article here.
Here is an even more detailed, but not all-inclusive, list of conditions that the World Health Organization recognizes that acupuncture can treat. If you have any questions about how acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help you, then please do not hesitate to contact me at 618-694-5189.
This page is intended to serve as a source for links to blogs and articles about acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine that both new and returning patients may find informative and/or entertaining. It is also where I will share information about the history, principles, and benefits of this awesome medicine.
