Benjamin Franklin and Oriental Medicine

Did you know there’s a connection between Oriental Medicine and one of America’s Founding Fathers? You may have heard the old saying: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: This health advice from Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century still applies today in the 21st. This is the same wisdom practiced and prescribed by doctors of Oriental Medicine for thousands of years.

In a practical sense, preventing disease is primarily a matter of having a strong immune system, and cultivating and maintaining a strong immune system is a primary focus and specialty of Oriental Medicine.

And remember: It’s always better - and easier - to correct imbalances in your health, through small incremental changes, before they become more serious problems.
