Treatment of those over retirement age involves prevention and treatment of depression, debility, dementia & delirium
Chinese culture has always recognised the value and role of the elderly in their communities, as such Chinese medicine has developed effective treatments to keep people in their optimum health as they age.
Apricot Forest offers strategic treatment plans for those in the third age. We initially assess your needs through constitution and condition and then offer a goal orientated treatment plan over a given time period. Our aim is to make a consolidated foundation from which to build greater health and longevity.
Our aim is to maintain optimum physiological dignity, consciousness and mobility. In the modern world, too many people are unnecessarily living out their later years in varying states of infirmity, mental decline, pain, misery and helplessness. Chinese medicine addresses these issues successfully.
After middle age people that have not re balanced, re fueled or re assessed their position are more susceptible to degeneration, decline and misfortune. We believe that good quality aging and decline is achievable and something to be desired.
Common conditions at this stage of life are; heart disease, circulatory issues and high or low blood pressure, cancers, diabetes, mental feebleness, memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer’s, musculo- skeletal infirmity, with degenerative joint conditions. Insomnia, poor appetite or simply fatigue. Chinese medicine treats these diseases very well and recovery is still possible depending only on how much damage has been allowed to occur. At this stage, western medicine often has too little to offer and too late.
Treatment at Apricot Forest involves primarily herbal medicine, adding exercises and guided nutrition. Massage and acupuncture, moxibustion or cupping may also be used. A consultation in the clinic or by skype video conference can give you a preliminary idea and assessment of what we can do for you.
