Eu Yan Sang: Customized Health Report Service [Sponsored Post]

With the haze raging on, I'm not too sure about you but I'm feeling less healthy than I usually am.
And it is times like these that my mum would bring out the pot and start making a range of dessert with certain ingredients that are believed to help cleanse the lungs like white fungus. 

In fact, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been part of my childhood growing up. When I got the opportunity to write about Eu Yan Sang's clinical services, I thought why not!

So what exactly is TCM and how does it affect the body?

TCM is based upon the theory of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements, while it views the body as an organic whole formed by Qi, body and mind. TCM diagnosis involves looking, listening, smelling, inquiry, taking pulse and palpation, and the first step is to determine an illness nature and location, followed by a pathogenic analysis. 

From there treatment is based on differentiating syndrome with eight strategies- sweating, vomiting, purging, harmonizing, warming, clearing, tonifying and removing; coupled with herbal medication, acupuncture, Tuina, cupping, Qigong and diet therapy to achieve a balance between the body's Yin and Yang.

Usually, I would only see a doctor when I'm sick but Eu Yan Sang TCM Wellness Clinics focus on preventive health/ sub-health issues which is basically along the lines of "prevention is better than cure".

What is this Health Report about?

The Health Report includes:
A diagnosis by the physician 
A determination of your dominant body constitution
A range of wellness tips ((Food Therapy, Herbal Tea, Foot Soak, Acupressure Massage, Wellness Exercise, and Habits to adopt) suitable for your particular body constitution shared 
to you by physician.

And you get to bring back all that was shared during the session in the form of a report so that you can refer to it.

Personal Experience

 I had a great time learning from Physician Chee, it was a plus that she could explain things to me in English. A majority of TCM physician tends to explain my conditions to me in Mandarin and most of the time, I would leave the clinic a little lost unless I have my mum in with me to explain certain things to me... Yes, I know! I'm Chinese but my mandarin is horrible.

Physician Chee would also take the trouble to google certain ingredients that I never heard of before, to help me understand, which I thought was really helpful.

And as usual, it always amazes me how these physicians can identify issues within my body just like that. You really got to try it to understand!

Clinic Branches:
I went the clinic at Plaza Singapura and was diagnosed by Physician Chee.
There are other clinics throughout Singapore and you may find the one closest to you via here.
