High blood pressure is a common condition and the chance of developing it rises with age. Anyone can get it and those who have it are at high risk of developing coronary heart disease, strokes and heart attacks. It is dangerous as it often has no symptoms and causes no immediate problems.
The TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) view is that high blood pressure is related to the heart, kidney and stomach organs. Frequently a few of organs have a functional disorder and fallen into imbalance state of Yin and Yang with an excess of Qi (vital energy). In many instances, high blood pressure is a sign that the entire body is out of gear.
High blood pressure has been successfully treated by Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.
TCM believes that, the person can never truly be well if the root cause of high blood pressure is not addressed. Diagnosis is based on the fundamental understanding that similar symptoms can have very different causes in different people.
Your GinSen Practitioner will analyse your symptoms and life style to determine exactly which organ is out of balance. When they have diagnosed the root cause of your condition, they will suggest a treatment plan customised to your specific condition using one or a combination of the following:
- Acupuncture: to restore and balance the function of the affected organs.
- Herbal tea: to support the organs without negative side effects.
- Massage: release tissue tension, and improve circulation.
- Lifestyle adjustments: addressing issues such as changes in diet, exercise and reducing stress
Chinese Medicine is able to permanently cure high blood pressure. The length of time and number of treatments taken to affect a cure depends on the nature and severity of the underlying condition.
