The fundamental principle of Chinese medicine is that the human body is considered
as a whole system. The balance of the system is the foundation of the health, and thus
the imbalance of it will result in illness. The purpose of Chinese medicine is to
re-balance the system to return you the health.


What is TCM?
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a holistic medicine and it dates back to before
the 21st century BC. With over thousands of years of practice and development,
Chinese medicine possesses a unique and integrated theory. It is a complete medicine
system. More and more research of modern medicine proves that Chinese medicine
has distinctive effects on most forms of illness.

Chinese medicine treats both acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all age
groups from infants to the elderly and even pregnant women.



AlterMed Acupuncture is now owned and operated by C.B. Bunkholt. Here is a note from Dr. Li Wang regarding her retirement from practice:

  

“CB and I were classmates at AAAOM.  When I was thinking of retirement, I was worrying about all my patients.  I would like to find someone to stay in the same location and continue taking care of my patients with good knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and following the way I treat my patients.  I am glad that I found CB Bunkholt who has been helping his patients with similar ideas and skills.  He shares the same beliefs as me to help patients in a good alternative way compared to regular western medicine. Similarly, he also wants to help patients with diet and exercises, in addition to acupuncture and herbal medicine.  Hope you all continue to trust AlterMed Acupuncture to continue along with your own happier and healthier life.”
