When someone with a chronic headache goes to see a medical doctor, chances are high that the medical doctor is going to prescribe a drug that has a great chance of alleviating the pain. Problem solved….right? It may be, but it’s not hard to figure out why this approach is so popular; in the mind of the patient with the reduction of the headache, the patient feels relief and often thinks that he is cured. When a patient goes to see a doctor of Chinese medicine, the doctor will provide a thorough examination, not to alleviate the pain, but rather to see what is causing the pain. When the “root’ cause is discovered, the Chinese doctor then attempts to correct it. Since the body is so interconnected, the headache could be caused by a problem that originates in the person’s foot, a diagnosis that would be missed with the traditional medical approach. Both approaches may work; however, when we take the time to understand the root, we have a greater chance of keeping the symptoms from reoccurring.
