According to Chinese medicine the brain is not alone when handling cognitive functions. This comprises of mental processes known as our memory, judgement, reasoning and perception. We also count on other organs to pair with our to carry out our mental processes such as, the heart, liver and kidneys. If the organs or organ systems are not working synergistically, it can lead to an imbalance. An imbalance can lead to a decline in mental health. The premise behind Chinese medicine is to balance the body and treat it as a whole. Treatment starts after a proper diagnosis by a TCM Practitioner that can differ from a western doctor’s diagnosis. Chinese medicine is used to get to the root cause of any health issue and cure from within for a better quality of life.
