Natural medicine is widely considered to be an alternative option for addressing illness or disease, but Austin Natural Healing Center provides safe treatment options for working with a large variety of ailments including chronic health problems and preventative care. Western medicine is still necessary for major medical issues like surgery, but for many health problems natural medicine, such as acupuncture, acupressure and herbal remedies, can provide affordable care without the side effects that can be an issue with conventional drugs.
“Acupuncture is designed to help a wide variety of diseases and problems like pain management, headaches, insomnia, allergies, infertility and tinnitus,” Dr. Don Zhang of Austin Natural Healing Center explains.
Dr. Zhang is an innovator of the natural medicine field with his research and creation of herbal formulas designed to help illnesses and diseases that have no conventional method of treatment, such as cervical disease caused by the human papillomavirus which can lead to cervical cancer.
In addition to his work with herbal formulas, Dr. Zhang has developed The Zhang Microsystems Acupuncture Method for which he won the prestigious Huang Di Award at the sixth International Conference of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1996. In order to understand Dr. Zhang’s method to microsystems, we must first understand what acupuncture is.
