Natural Medicine At Medica Vita Center

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical and natural health care system that has been consistently used to the benefit of patients for more than 3000 years. It considers patients’ body and mind as a whole - a unity with a complex system of interrelations between all its parts, hence its fundamental principle is to see and to treat the patient as a whole.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a concept is described as a profound pathway to create the life you truly want to live and that is align with your inner powers and spiritual uniqueness. Some of the foundations of TCM are based on beliefs that the human body is a miniature version of the inconceivable and immeasurable surrounding universe, and that the harmony between two opposing yet complementary forces, called yin and yang, supports health. This means that any past, existing or future disease results from the delicate equilibrium between these forces being disrupted.

Traditional Chinese Medicine - holistic and bio-friendly

TCM is called holistic and natural or bio-friendly, because it stimulates the body’s own potent healing mechanisms and takes into account all aspects of the patient’s life, rather than just the evident signs or symptoms of the illness or injury. TCM experienced practitioners perceive the body as a complex network of interconnected parts, rather than as separate systems or organs.

Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners may use different methods of diagnosis in order to collect as much information about the patient and the disease symptoms as possible. This allows the doctor to fully understand all the many input factors which have contributed to the illness or injury in question.

Bringing the person back to their homeostasis (balanced state) where they subsequently feel re-energized and revived may be achieved by using a variety of different Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies such as:

- acupuncture

- proper nutrition for weight loss

- Chinese herbal therapy

- cupping therapy

- moxibustion

- lifestyle counselling

TCM focuses on precise diagnostics - every treatment method should be preceded by a thorough analysis of your current condition. The doctor will need your detailed medical history, so he will ask questions about your lifestyle, exercise routine, habits, diet and temperament. Your pulse will be checked, your skin condition will be assessed, and even your eyes and tongue will be examined. Only then, after compiling a complete 360 degree picture of your health, will the doctor decide on the treatment method.

Traditional Chinese Medicine - The Benefits

It is important to stress that TCM isn’t only designed to treat pre-existing ailments but, as the embodiment of an holistic approach to treatment, it can also function as a form of preventative medicine. This is not a new idea - even hundreds of years ago doctors in ancient China were paid to prevent people from falling ill.

One of the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine is the ability to decrease inflammation. The Journal of Traditional & Complementary Medicine reports that Traditional Chinese Medicine practices, including herbal treatments and the use of medicinal mushrooms, can have positive “antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and autophagic regulatory functions” (source). In other words, by lowering levels of oxidative stress and inflammation, it protects cells, tissues and organs from long-term disease development, including diseases such as cancer.

Counteracting inflammation that is considered the root of most diseases such as heart disease, cancer or autoimmune disorders is a natural and desired consequence of all TCM treatments, including acupuncture, acupressure and herbal treatments. These natural medicine therapies can also help patients overcome a variety of harmful lifestyle habits related to inflammation, including: overeating, nicotine addiction, chronic stress, chronic pain or alcohol-induced liver damage. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been found particularly effective in treating health problems such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Indigestion
  • Arthritis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • PMS or menopause symptoms
  • High blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Liver disease
  • Cancer recovery

At Medica Vita Center, we strongly believe that every illness or medical condition such as inflammation, pain, eating disorders or immunological diseases originate from an imbalance in a magnificent but a complex machine which is the human body. Accumulation of those imbalances can lead to chronic conditions, just as those mentioned above. Our goal is to restore the balance; strengthening the body by strengthening its immune system and hence improving our patients’ quality of life. At Medica Vita we treat each patient as a one-of-a-kind universe that needs a personalized approach both in diagnosis and treatment.
