Healing of Chronic Disorders
Specialize in Both
the Symptoms and the Root Causes
Is A Chronic Condition?
Chronic condition is an illness that is ongoing or recurring for a long
time, or even a lifetime,
and that canít be passed on by contact, such as neurological
disorders, migraine, diabetes, neuropathy,
fibromyalgia, hypertension, heart disease, Parkinsonís
disease, kidney failure, lupus, cancer, etc.
These conditions have a high tendency to be passed onto later
Medicine View of Chronic Conditions - Common Causes
conditions could be defined as a poor constitution, which means multiple
meridians and layers of the body are affected significantly. The impacts to the
body are intertwined, so the body canít heal itself as easily. Without
sufficient energy flow through these meridians, the organs associated with the
meridians will be deficient, then the organís physiological functions will be
weakened, hence diseases and symptoms will be more apparent and persistent
overtime. Below is a list of common causes:
repeated or severe injuries, the energy pathways are heavily impaired or
blocked. The common sources of injuries are car accidents, strenuous sport
activities, surgeries and battles.
severe illness, like polio, hepatitis, pneumonia, heart attack or high
fever, the impact to the body is persistent. If it is not fully cured in
time, it can easily transform itself from an acute state into a chronic
experiencing a trauma, the impact to both mental and physical can be
equally significant. More importantly, the instant mega use of the inner
energy makes the body weakened immediately. This is why Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder has a series of symptoms, such as exhaustion, upset
stomach, headaches, sweating, etc.
life style: not enough sleep or exercise; overeating; poor diet; polluted
food, air and water; over exposure to coldness and dampness, can impair
our health. If it is persistent, it then creates a pattern of blockages in
the body and the symptoms can be worsened overtime, such as fibromyalgia,
obesity, asthma, etc.
one has a mutated gene or a trauma at birth, it can damage the personís
physical or mental development.
original Qi (energy) keeps growing till puberty then begins its retreat.
After middle age, people begin to experience some discomfort in multiple
parts of the body. This indicates that the original Qi is not strong
enough to supply the needed energy to some areas of the body. Mid-life
crisis marks the beginning of this aging process.
medications have long lasting side effects. Prolonged use can impair the
body in many ways and induce other chronic conditions, such as
hypertension, arthritis, palpitation, heart burn, etc.
Is the Key, Then Treat the Root Causes
healing of any chronic conditions starts with identifying the root causes, then
follow a particular treatment plan to reduce the root causes and the symptoms at
the same time. That way, the symptoms will be under control and eventually
diminish when the condition is cured completely.

Prevention to Intervention - The Best of both Worlds, A Testimonial
Liao, Ph.D. brings numerous Eastern perspectives (Qigong healer and Tai Chi
Master) to his 15+ years of practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist. This method of
health care allows Dr. Liao to share insights and ideas with his clients on
wellness so that they can obtain a deeper integrated understanding of their
health as they go through the healing process. Although his academic training
shows through his logical and systematic acupuncture treatments, it is his
combined personal care for the people he treats that separate him from other
more point must be made. Few areas like the present topic so vividly demonstrate
the separateness and compartmentalization of Western approaches to the
mind-body-spirit healing synergy and the contrast with Eastern unity. We Western
take our philosophy in school, our spiritual needs in a house of worship, our
physical exercise at the gym and our mental or meditative needs in classes.
Working with Dr. Liao, the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of the human
being are combined, not separated, integrated, and not divided.
