Relieve Pain and Ailments with 8-Constitution Medicine from Hackensack Acupuncture & Herbs
Life is all about balance. Our team at Hackensack Acupuncture & Herbs understands there are strengths and weaknesses in everyone’s life and body. Our doctors of oriental medicine work to find the right treatments to improve your quality of life and relieve what ails you.
Balancing Strength and Weakness
Everyone has strong and weak organs. When looking at a person from the perspective of 8-Constitution Medicine, it is possible to see what is functioning at peak performance and what is not. The weaker organs, combined with a poor diet, may have you feeling lethargic, in chronic pain and unable to function as you want. From this angle of healing, Dr. Kim and his team develop a plan so that you can thrive.
Determining Your Body Type
8-Constitution Medicine looks at people through the category of organ health. This branch of study was developed in 1965 by Dr. Dowon Kuon. Since then it has been accepted and used by practitioners across the globe to help patients return to optimum health. The eight categories that patients can be classified under include:
- Hepatonia: relating to a strong liver and weak lungs
- Cholecystotonia: relating to a strong gallbladder and weak colon
- Pulmotonia: relating to strong lungs and a weak liver
- Colonotonia: relating to a strong colon and weak gallbladder
- Gastrotonia: relating to a strong stomach and weak bladder
- Pancreotonia: relating to a strong pancreas and weak kidneys
- Renotonia: relating to a strong kidney and weak pancreas
- Vesicotonia: relating to a strong bladder and weak stomach
Understanding a patient’s ailments and possible food allergies allows our team to find the right path to wellness. In acupuncture, we strive to balance the body and the energy so there are no areas of tightness and dysfunction. With the 8-Constitution Medicine practice, we can help you to develop what is weak and eliminate pain, fatigue and irritation so you can lead an enjoyable life.
