Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our health wellness center .Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Sacredpath Health and Wellness Center emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place.
Humans have been on earth for at least 10,000 years. The oldest existing writings on Chinese medicine date back about 3000 years, and contain a complete, sophisticated system for promoting health and longevity as well as healing imbalances. Though modern times have additional stressors: electric lights allowing us to work into the night and throughout long winters, constantly available food and stimulants that stress our adrenal and pancreatic hormones, constant bombardment by the media to look outside ourselves for satisfaction, as well as exposure to extraordinary amounts of toxic chemicals that were previously restricted to small segments of society, such as miners. These early writings also lament on the decadence of human nature - 3000 years ago!
Human nature has not changed. Spiritual disillusionment, social disenfranchisement as well create stress for individuals. All of these factors magnify each other in our systems. Western medicine, far from addressing the source of sickness: looks for a quick fix. IS heart disease caused by a deficiency of calcium channel blockers? (perhaps magnesium deficiency...) Is depression a deficiency of SSRI's? Most of us assume there is no cure. Over time we forget that we had high hopes for ourselves and plans to make a difference in life beyond our circle of friends and family. This kind of vision helps us look beyond the quick fix for a real answer. Chinese medicine, rooted in Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian philosophy, addresses the real issues causing disease.
Because it is truly a system of mind/body/spirit health, Chinese medicine assists us in returning to the path of health and wellness that we may have previously known but long lost. For others, this journey may help us find a new center and realize a deep desire for wellness that we may never have experienced.
