Adrenal Fatigue/ Chronic Fatigue
Chronic fatigue that has not been examined by a doctor can be associated with a multitude of disease states and should be assessed by your GP. If your fatigue is associated with stress, insomnia, mild depression or other known causes, treatments with Chinese medicine could give you more energy and correct the underlying cause of fatigue. Many patients with this diagnosis may find relief with the combination of Chinese herbs, acupuncture and dietary changes prescribed by our licensed acupuncturist.

Moreover, Chinese medicine focuses on preventing diseases through prevention before the onset of the diseases or intervening in an early stage of diseases rather than treating after the onset.
