Customized Chinese Herbal Formulas, Supplements and Nutritional Consultation
Chinese Herbal Formulas
In Traditional Chinese Medicine in addition to acupuncture and touch therapies Chinese herbs are used to bring the body into homeostasis. Different herbs have various properties and can balance particular parts of the body. Dr Zisman will prescribe a herbal formula after a thorough diagnosis and nutritional consultation which takes into account the state of the patient’s Yin and Yang, and the elements that are governing the affected organs. In TCM philosophy our body with its concurrent organs is composed of the five elements: fire, earth, metal, water and wood. The herbs are similarly classified into the five tastes – sweet, salty, bitter, pungent and sour – Different herbs have different properties and can balance particular parts of the body. Dr Zisman will also advise you to make specific changes in your diet, such as avoiding spicy foods, alcohol, sweet foods, and sodas, making these dietary changes is an integral part of the healing process. Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical drugs and should be treated with the same caution and respect. If you are on western medication, Dr Zisman will need detailed disclosure of your western medications and conditions in order to determine what herbs to recommend.
Supplements Vitamins and Minerals
Dr Zisman advises that the very first consideration is to eat a balanced healthy diet. Even the best supplement is no substitute for good nutrition. Balanced healthy food and nutrition is the best medicine, yet in our culture today people tend to consume foods that are high in calories, and lack nutrients that are vital for good health.At the East West Herzliya clinic we perform a thorough evaluation and nutritional consultation before we recommending supplementation to patients. There are specific patients that need extra assistance due to their conditions and will benefit from taking a vitamin and mineral supplement because of their distinct nutritional needs and their age: women of childbearing age (need extra calcium and iron), pregnant or lactating women, children and teenagers with irregular eating habits, seniors, vegetarians or vegans (may be deficient in key nutrients), dieters or people avoiding certain food groups (may be deficient in key nutrients), people with eating disorders or medical conditions (deficiency diseases, absorption problems, lactose intolerance, etc.), and people who often eat processed and fast foods.
