Acupressure Points for Specific Health Conditions, Pain, and Chronic Disease
To support your self-care initiatives, we provide acupressure point combinations on each ailments page for specific health conditions. These are not acu-point prescriptions written in stone; rather, they are a possible viable acupressure treatment protocol. There are many approaches that you may decide to take, and many points that treat the same conditions. It is often said, "If you put 100 licensed acupuncturists in a room to evaluate a single patient they would come up with 100 different treatment strategies. (The same is often said about herbalist too.) This is why it is called a "healing art". As you learn more details about more of the acupressure points that we detail on this website you will activate the healer within and start to come up with your own creative acupressure solutions for your health conditions and to ease suffering for your loved ones.
How Does Natural Medicine Address Chronic Illness and Pain?
It is said that ‘there are a thousand ways to heal’. Over the years, we have encountered individuals who have fallen in to poor health due to innumerable reasons and unexpected stresses and demands that have not allowed them to focus on their wellness. We believe in people’s ability to discern health conditions that require immediate critical care, and those health conditions that can be self-treated. We also know that there are those who understand that their issues can only be addressed over time, and there really is no ‘magic bullet pill’ when it comes to chronic health conditions. Additionally, herbal therapy is only one possible therapy option available; luckily, it combines well with all other therapies such as self acupressure that you can learn about here!
It is true that you may need to read through many of the articles provided before you truly understand the patterns of imbalance that have attributed to your particular suffering; we understand that we have not provided one perfect herbal remedy that will resolve all of your suffering. Instead, we are offering you an opportunity to traverse a healing journey with a bit of guidance, and sound educational information on how Chinese herbal therapy can assist you in true wellness. By taking in to consideration both your constitutional imbalances and symptoms you can find the correct constitutional formula addressing the organ-level imbalances.

If you want more detailed guidance you will need to purchase an online personal health consult from Dr. Browne.
Traditional Chinese medicine terminology:
In addition to the articles related to specific health conditions linked on this page, we provide educational information that explains specific imbalances according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
The classification of herbs called Tonics are stronger than super-foods, but considered milder than medicinal herbs. They work to strengthen the body and promote a long, healthy, vibrant life. Chinese Tonic Herbs can be taken over a long period of time without any side effects, and support the Three Treasures (Shen, Qi, and Jing). They are ideal for addressing long-standing, ongoing, chronic health issues.
How Can I Use Natural Chinese Medicine for Chronic Ailment Related to Aging?
With the passage of the ‘warrior’ years, and the ‘diplomat years’, the boomer generation is now passing into a fruitful time of wisdom, self-growth, and patient progress with iGen and Millennials following close behind. Understanding that time passes, regardless of our harried action or inaction, we are able to advance with accumulated knowledge at a new tempo with advanced age.
As our life begins to allow the luxury of introspection, our attention begins to focus on recuperation and rejuvenation of our body and mind. Free of the urges for immediate gratification and pressing needs of family and career, we are finally able to take a deep breath and begin nurturing ourselves. It is within this new chapter of our life that new options for sustainable health are sought out and utilized.
During the early years of life, our bodies are resilient and free of disease. As our bodies begin to show the wear and tear of life’s challenges, our illusions of immortality begin to fade. Our generation is not satisfied with the prognosis of a slow decline in health over 30 or 40 years until our eventual death; we would like to live fully until the day we die.
We do not want the modern marvels of medicine to replace our knees; we want to prevent the deterioration of our joints and to stay flexible. We are not impressed that insulin shots slow the eventual complications from diabetes; we want to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and nourish our pancreas, thus avoiding diabetes. We don’t want to end up in the emergency room for life saving heart surgery; we want to keep our heart strong and maintain a healthy circulatory system.
Tonic herbs are not new, but their value has been excluded from common knowledge in most modern Western cultures. The basic assumption that you can, in reality, reverse the damage done to organs and ‘turn back the clock’ is the kind of radical theory that my ‘hipster’ ‘boomer’ generation loves to embrace. Acupressure for self-care is also self-empowering.
Ageless Herbs is about self-empowerment, and thus, taking control of your health; it’s about reversing the accumulating effects of aging on your body, and about accumulating tools and knowledge for healthy aging and longevity. Chinese Tonic herbs are a refreshing option for maintaining health and wellness for a generation that has inspired inventive solutions that have influenced an entire culture. There are many roads to wellness, and each individual must choose the correct path for their journey.
