An Integrative Approach to Improving Your Health Using Chinese Medicine

Learn more about what Bay Area Integrative Health Care has to offer!

 

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.

Commonly Treated Conditions

  • Reproductive Health

  • Migraine & Headache

  • Allergy & Sinus Issues

  • Low/High Blood Pressure

  • Smoking Cessation

  • Side Effects from Cancer Treatment

  • Chronic Illness

  • Neuropathy

  • Pain

Join VIBE YOGA for Just Breathe – A Pranayama and Asana Workshop with Sharon Dawson – 9/8/18

Pranayama is breath work, from the Sanskrit prana meaning “vital force” and yama meaning “to restrain or control”.  Learn pranayama techniques such as Alternate Nostril Breathing, Kapalabhati, and Brahmeri to regulate your nervous system, brain and body.  These can be practiced on their own, in meditation, and with yoga. This ancient practice has research-based, practical applications in our daily lives such as:

  • warming up a cold body
  • cooling down an overheated body
  • improving sleep
  • increasing mental clarity
  • lifting depression
  • easing anxiety
  • balancing digestion
  • enhancing sex life

Learn which pranayamas to employ when you feel sluggish and low energy, and what types to engage when you feel anxious and stressed.  Practice pranayama in combination with Yin, Vinyasa and Restorative Yoga, feeling the subtle, yet profound, effects of this time-tested discipline.

Sharon Dawson has been studying and practicing pranayama for over 40 years.  Pranayama and Asana will be skillfully interwoven throughout this workshop. Be prepared to move, sweat and experience stillness.  Learn how to practice and teach basic techniques and to deepen your personal pranayama experience!

For those participating in Vibe’s 500 hour teacher training program, this elective will count for 3 hours.  Also open to students and teachers who want to deepen their knowledge.

Delucchi’s NEW: Kombucha on Tap

Take a look at Delucchi’s Market NEW Kombucha on Tap! 

They now have GT’S Kombucha on Tap! That’s right, you’ll be able to serve yourself fresh Kombucha. They will still have bottled varieties available in their Kombucha and tea aisle, but fresh is better. There will be growlers which you can refill every time you come back. Come on in and check it out!

About GT’S Kombucha:

Raised by parents practicing Eastern philosophy, GT Dave adopted a spiritual view of the world from a very young age. Gifted a Himalayan Mother SCOBY in the early ‘90s, the Daves were intrigued by Kombucha’s ancient healing properties and decided to brew their own batches of the fizzy, fermented tea.

In late 1994, GT’s mom, Laraine, was diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of breast cancer. When she healed, Laraine shared with doctors that she had been drinking a very pungent, homemade tea. That tea was GT’s Kombucha.

Inspired by his mom’s experience, it became GT’s mission to make his Kombucha accessible for everyone, everywhere. At only 15, he began bottling his brew in the kitchen of his parents’ Southern California home and became the first to put Kombucha on shelves in the U.S.

At GT’s Kombucha, they have stayed true to the authentic brewing process of this sacred elixir for over 20 years. Their #1 selling Kombucha is raw, organic, naturally effervescent, and handcrafted in small batches – always cultured, never compromised.
