Sometimes it is very useful for you to learn how your lifestyle choices can impact on your health. Then you can decide whether you are ready to make some changes, or whether you need more time to think. Often, just being aware is enough to help you to see how you can influence your own health, without having to make radical changes.
For example, stress or frustration can stop the “Liver” energy from flowing properly. The Liver energy can get stuck and then impact the digestive system, leading to symptoms like wind, diarrhoea or poor appetite. In this case, lifestyle advice would mean educating you about this link, so that you can think about whether there are areas in your life that cause you frustration, and whether you are able to change them.
On the other hand, if something else has caused your Liver energy to become stuck, then this can actually cause you to feel the emotion of frustration. In this case, using Chinese herbs or acupuncture to free the Liver can then lead to freedom from frustration.
Another area of lifestyle therapy is about working with cycles of nature. Understanding how the daily, monthly and seasonal cycles influence our body and state of mind, means that we can choose our actions to harmonise with nature to receive the full support of each phase.
Chinese medicine looks at interconnected webs of signs, symptoms and subjective experience. This is woven together to make a picture of your current health situation. We help you see your health issues from different angles, empowering you to make meaningful change that feels right for you.
