Yin and Young

Balance. Yin and yang. These are the basic principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that has been around and still in practice for thousands of years. It is believed that this balance is directly correlated to a person’s state of health and wellbeing. Thus achieving it depends on the individual’s own needs. Unlike Western medicine that approaches treatments for various ailments singularly, the Chinese believe that ailments are brought by different causes and each person responds to treatments differently, and therefore these must be addressed by individualized treatments and therapies according to their needs. Acupuncture has the same concept of harmony that our body is connected by meridians or paths where energy, or qi, flows, and an imbalance in energy can lead to disease (Lee and Lio, p. 111).

A Beginner’s Guide to Homeopathy

A Beginner’s Guide to Homeopathy

Have you heard of homeopathy but never really understood how homeopathic remedies work? While it may come across as intimidatingly complex, this natural health practice is in fact based on a simple healing principle: ‘like cures like.’ In other words, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, a very small amount of the same substance given to the person may cure the illness.
