Philosophy

Combining Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine I address the cause of your disorder.  Often the cause of an illness is not where the symptoms occur.

My focus is to restore the inherent self healing capacity of your body.

Pillar of Health’s underlying philosophy is that of the traditional Chinese medicine, where the five elements theory is applied to interpret the interaction between the physiology and pathology of our bodies and that of the natural environment. To stay healthy we must keep the five elements in balance.

The problem, the disease is most likely not where the symptoms are.

Each holistic thinking and working person or therapist knows that we have to balance any different regulation systems in our body , in order to get, or to stay healthy. We have to look at; the mesodermal tissue, neural, humoral and the energetic level of our regulation system and address it holistically.

To do this we apply the method of the five (5) Elements based on the Chinese medicine with the twelve (12) corresponding meridians and the eight (8) vessels, the latter being a concept introduced by Dr. Voll.

We believe, that illness manifests first on the energetic level and then goes down to the humoral level and then to the cellular level. As well we believe the health manifest itself first as well on the energetic level and goes down to the humoral, level and then to the cellular level.

To stay healthy we must keep the five elements in balance.  When the elements are not in balance the body displays symptoms, however, the problem, the disease is most likely not where the symptoms are.

Therefore we can not only address the symptoms, but we have to correct the cellular level, where the disease lies.

Our system and life is in a constant flowing, exchanging and moving energy , so the theory is not a stable state it is changing in yin and yang, in emptiness and abundance, etc.
