Chinese medicine focuses on preventative processes and
treatment in order to help the body's natural ability to repel and cure
injuries and disease. Acupuncture may
have preventative abilities when it comes to Alzheimer's disease and
dementia. Seasonal treatments are one strategy Dr. Li employs
to ensure preventative therapies are routinely applied. She has been using seasonal treatment therapy for nearly twenty years.
Chinese medicine each season is connected with particular organs of the
human body. For instance, summer in connected with the heart and the
small intestine. Fall is connected with the lungs and large intestine.
Winter is connected with the kidney and bladder. Spring is connected
with the liver and gallbladder. It is also recognized that Indian
summer is connected with the spleen and the stomach. Chinese medicine
believes treatment is more effective for these organs if done during
their season. Timing is important as well. Treatment is ideal if it
is done between five days before the start of the new season and end no
later than seven days after the start of the season. Feel free to contact Dr. Li if you wish to know more.
