DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Don’t ask the doctor, ask the patient.
How do we choose the right treatment? The body will tell us what’s wrong once we’ve learned how to listen–and listening is Mor’s specialty. Her diagnosis comes from the knowledge gained by looking, by touching, and by hearing. She listens to your body with the traditional tools of eyes and hands: from Chinese pulse taking and tongue and face observation, to Japanese methods of abdominal diagnosis. And then, just as important, she listens to you; taking time to ask the questions that will give her an understanding of your illness and its effect on your life.
Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing, developed in China thousands of years ago. In the modern version of Acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate specific anatomical points. The ancient texts describe 365 acupuncture points found on 12 main energy channels that flow throughout the body. Other points, called extra points, not found on these channels were discovered later. By needling these Acupuncture points we affect the flow of Qi or internal life energy in the body. Once the flow of Qi in the channels is smooth, the healthy balance is restored.
NAET® discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983. Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, also known as NAET, are a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
One allergen is treated at a time. If you are not severely immune deficient, you may need just one treatment to desensitize one allergen. A person with mild to moderate amount of allergies may take about 15-20 office visits to desensitize 15-20 food and environmental allergens.
Basic essential nutrients are treated during the first few visits. Chemicals, environmental allergens, vaccinations, immunizations, etc. are treated after completing about ten basic essential nutrients. NAET can successfully alleviate adverse reactions to egg, milk, peanuts, penicillin, aspirin, mushrooms, shellfish, latex, grass, ragweed, flowers, perfume, animal dander, animal epithelial, make-up, chemicals, cigarette smoke, pathogens, heat, cold, other environmental agents. It may take several office visits to desensitize a severe allergen
The gate is a healing method that was invented in israel by yohai israeli in 2010. After many years of investigating human behavioral patterns, subconscious and human psychology yohai found an easy and effective method to relieve some of the most debilitating psychological conditions. The gate is not only very effective, it works fast and achieves permanent welcomed changes in an amazingly short period of time. Holistic medicine is a mind-body medicine, there is a deep connection between the two and only by addressing both aspects of our health we can achieve a real change and healing can take place. Treating chronic illnesses exposes me to patients who have been desperately trying to achieve health for many years, i am many times number 100 on a long list of practitioners who have tried to help my patients. I find that these patients are ideal candidates for the Gate, many times they hold on to their illness as they feels safer that way. Sometimes its a belief that; others it’s a behavioral pattern they can not shake off or a trauma they carry from childhood. Through the Gate we can find out what is preventing their healing and easily uproot it in order to create a significant change.
Herbs have been valued by healers for centuries, and Mor uses them as a proven safe and gentle alternative to synthetic medications with their often harsh side effects. But herbs are medicines, and as with all medicines, they should be administered with care and their effects monitored to avoid potentially dangerous interactions with other supplements, drugs or health conditions.
Mor is a board certified herbalist and compounds her own formulas at Myrrh, using superior quality tinctures manufactured in the United States under strict supervision. Tinctures are as potent as raw herbs, but they taste better and the glycerin based potions are pleasant and easy to swallow, a real advantage when prescribing for kids. Both tailor made and classical herbal formulas are in Mor’s repertoire and are used to complement the acupuncture treatment.
NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE
Can a small lifestyle change solve a problem that has been plaguing you for years? At Myrrh we believe that sometimes that’s all it takes; a minor change in your diet can improve chronic ailments and start you on the road to a healthier life. On your first visit, Mor goes over your eating plan and advises you on the simple changes that will make you feel better.
We depend on the nutrients we get from our food, but the way we eat today, we may not be getting all the nutrition we require. Mor’s suggestions are specifically tailored to each patient’s needs, whether it’s supplements or simply changes in diet; each of us is different, our chemistry and our constitution determine what diet works best for us. Patients with autoimmune disorders are usually deficient in vitamins A and D for example, while patients with imbalances in the nervous system benefit from a well-balanced B complex. Mor diagnoses what is missing through elaborated functional medicine lab work and kinesiology and then prescribes the right supplement for you.
