Neurological diseases are diseases which affect some part of the human nervous system, which is one of the systems the body uses to process information, initiate action and maintain homeostasis, or balance.
The concept of balance is central to the way in which Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approaches disorders affecting the nervous system. Whether it is the system in total which is malfunctioning, or whether it is just one localised part of that system.
From a TCM point of view, any neurological disorder represents a loss of equilibrium in the body (and mind) of the individual, and our treatment aims to identify where this imbalance is coming from and to gently help restore harmony and balance to the person as a whole. Thus rather than just focusing on the symptoms of the disease, we aim also to get to the root of the problem.
