Dr. Park's Message; Be patient for your true health...

 

Just as nature requires time to restore damaged resources, the human body requires a reasonable amount of time to recover and heal in order to reach homeostasis and allow the body to function properly again. Furthermore, the amount of time it takes to reach homeostasis differs for every unique individual, depending on his or her body structure and rhythm.

 

 

A few commonly used Traditional Medicine terms

 

  • The Meridian System (經絡, also called Channel Network) is a Traditional Medicine belief about a path through which the life-energy known as "Qi" flows.

 

  • Blood is the densest fluid substance in the body and is responsible for providing nourishment and the material basis for mental and emotional life.

 

  • A patient who shows signs of Deficiency lacks Qi (life-energy), Moisture, or Blood. They may also exhibit hypo-function of any organ or organ system.

 

  • A patient with an Excess condition has a surplus or congestion of Qi, Moisture, or Blood and may show hyper-function of any organ or organ system.

 

  • Yin (-) and Yang (+) refer to the two fundamental forces that organize the universe. Yin manifests as darkness, the Moon, quiet, coolness, and inertia. It also includes the material substances of the body (tissue, blood, and body fluid). Yang manifests as light, the Sun, noise, warmth, and activity. Yang also includes the activity of the body and the generation of metabolic heat. Some organs are Yin and some are Yang. The Yin organs “store” essence (tears, sweat, saliva, mucus, and sexual secretions) and include the Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung, and Kidney. The Yang organs transform, digest, and discharge waste. Yang organs include the Gallbladder, Small Intestine, Stomach, Large Intestine, and Urinary Bladder.

 

  • Blood Stasis means....For the body to remain healthy it must be constantly moistened, nourished, and detoxified by an abundant supply of clean, fresh blood. Blood Stasis is an important pathology of many disease processes in Traditional Medicine. Simply put, it means the flow of blood is slowed down and brought to a static state. Normally, blood is stored in the liver and propelled by the heart energy (氣Qi) to flow through the body. If blood circulation is stagnant or slowed down by certain factors, it will lead to retention of blood in any part of the body or overflow of blood out of the vessels, resulting in blood stasis. Blood stasis frequently occurs in long-term chronic illnesses. Blood stasis, due to various etiologies (emotions, diet, etc.) may be the root of many age-related disharmonies. It can also be commonly observed after surgery or external traumatic injuries. Liver system (in Traditional Medicine) is the most frequently affected organ by blood stasis. Other affected organs are the Heart, Lung, Stomach, and Intestines.
