Dr. Hong’s program, the Individualized Body-Mind Therapy (IBMT), is a combination of the following alternative therapies. The integrative approach ensures that each patient receives synergetic effect from all modalities as well as individualized treatment plan.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the most complete medical theory alternative to Western allopathic medicine. It includes a variety of therapies such as Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. The yin-yang balance approach is the core of our program. All other modalities listed below are used in the program to reach the same goal, energetic balance of the meridians.
Homeopathy is a three-hundred-year-old European healing system treating diseases with highly diluted (potentized) herbs, mineral and other chemicals. Homeopathic remedies are used frequently in our program to improve drainage system, detoxify and regenerate organs and tissues.
Electrodermal screening is a computerized skin conductivity testing. It detects skin conductivity changes on acupuncture points to identify the energetic balance and blockage of the body. It also helps the practitioner to choose the right remedies to balance the meridians and identify possible sensitivities that stress the body.
Immune system reprogamming (ISR) is a back-tapping procedure developed from acupressure and homeopathy to help the body reprogram immune functions, unblock metabolic and detox pathways and desensitize sensitivities as well.
Adrenal fatigue syndrome is a common chronic illness that causes low energy and sleeping disturbance. It also affects metabolism, hormonal and neurotransmitter balances and casues sensitivity and chronic inflammation. Adrenal program, including a group of therapies such as herbs, homeopathy, nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes, helps people with adrenal fatigue syndrome recover from this long-term chronic illness.
Energetic emotional therapies help psychological issues with energetic approach. Emotional problem is an energetic issue and can be treated with energetic approach. Emotions can be associated with specific meridians in the theory of Chinese medicine. The common modalities used here include Chinese herbs, Bach flower essences and Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT).
Treating hormonal imbalance naturally is one of the major goals in our practice. We will do everything we can to balance hormones without using any types of hormonal replacement. Chinese herbs, acupuncture, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes can be all used.
Many psychological and neurological diseases are caused by neurotransmitter imbalance. Amino acids are building blocks of many neurotransmitters. Digestion and absorption of amino acids as well as intestinal health play a major role in neurotransmitter balance. Amino acid supplementation is also used.
