What is natural healing?

Diseases are caused by outside pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, or stress, and internal factors that attack the human body and poison the cells or take away their nutrition. Under normal circumstances the body has a natural defense system to destroy many such attackers and then the body heals itself. But some of the attacking factors are so tricky that they defeat the body’s natural resistance and cause considerable disorders. At this time, the body needs help to facilitate healing.

How is Dr.Xu working for you?

Whether you are suffering from emotional stress, physical pain, or even facing a challenging illness, Dr. Xu will provide valuable information and professional insight into your specific health concerns. He will combine western medical science and the wisdom of eastern traditional Chinese medical experience, as well as his advanced medical research knowledge to make a personalized assessment and then recommend a natural healing plan for you to optimize your body’s inner healing capacity for better health and better quality of life (Office visits and phone consultation is also available).

The science of acupuncture is a practice that deals with the prevention and treatment of diseases by acupuncture needling method. Acupuncture helps to improve the body’s energy flow and blood circulation, which results in the unblocking and removing of obstacles in the meridian pathways of human being. This process leads to the recovery of good health. For thousands of years people have accepted this method of healing because of its good effect, wide range of indications, simple application, and safety record. Acupuncture needles are pre-sterilized disposable stainless steel.

These flowing movements are designed especially to help people reach a better mind-body communication, mental concentration, physical relaxation, stress reduction, and energy recovery, as well as maintain a healthy body weight. Classes and private lessons are available.

Tai Chi is a beautiful moving art to balance one’s mind, body, and spirit. It uses a mental idea to direct physical movements and thus enhances the body’s internal energy flow (Qi) for better health and a better quality of life (DVD is available).

I have neck pain, shoulder pain, and lower back pain. I had shoulder replacement surgeries in 2007 and 2009. MRI was performed that indicated neck and lower back osteoarthritis and disc degeneration. I went to the pain care center and they gave me several cortisone shorts and pain medicine, but the pain was still there. Today I see Dr. Xu and under his acupuncture care I feel much better and I can play golf with my husband and friends. -- G
