At Bay Area Integrative Health Care (BAIHC) we use traditional Chinese medical treatments to heal the whole person; mind, body, and spirit. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is currently being used all over the world in modern hospitals and clinics to help treat patients who suffer from pain, chronic disease, nausea from chemotherapy/early pregnancy, reproductive health conditions, allergies, obesity, high and low blood pressure, and mental health issues such as anxiety disorders and stress.

The goal in treating patients with alternative treatments such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and therapeutic massage is to improve your health holistically.

Taking less pharmaceutical medication isn’t just beneficial to your physical health, it’s also much more affordable in comparison to the high cost of prescription medication. The continuously rising cost of pharmaceutical drugs is a serious financial burden for people with fixed incomes; such as the elderly, patients suffering from serious illness, and the disabled.

The alternative treatments practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be used in conjunction with, and sometimes in lieu of, pharmaceutical medications. A common complaint patients often have is that their prescription medication  may  help with one  diagnosis, such as pain, but more often than not these medications cause the patients to experience unpleasant side effects.

For example the symptoms commonly experienced by cancer patients while undergoing, and even after, completing chemotherapy are nausea, neuropathy of the hands/feet, and fatigue. Some  of the most common pharmaceutical medication side effects patients turn to integrative medicine seeking to find a holistic source of alleviation of are:

  • Constipation
  • Hot Flashes
  • Abdominal Cramping
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Gain
  • Nausea

At Bay Area Integrative Health Care we offer an integrative approach to ease patients of the troublesome side effects they’re experiencing from medication. Our main goal is to reduce the amount of pharmaceutical medication patients are taking, sometimes even on a daily basis, by offering holistic alternatives to treat symptoms, improve wellness, and heal the whole person – mind and body.
