The Decision To Heal

I want to ask you two questions. The first, “Do you have a medical condition that concerns you?” If you do, the second question would be “do you want to do something about it?” You would think that I would get at least two-thirds of you to admit yes to the first question since this is the national statistic for those Americans overweight, or perhaps, at least one-third of you who are clinically obese and at a high risk for heart disease. We live in a country in which contemporary medicine has educated us that if we don’t show symptoms, then we must be healthy despite having to take medicine. Then we get confused when diseases like cancer, diabetes, stroke and heart attack seemingly strike out of ‘nowhere’ without any apparent symptoms.

What if you do admit to having a medical condition and don’t want to do anything about it? Perhaps you’re getting by on medication that masks the symptoms or you’re too busy to deal with it right now. Maybe you’ve had advice from someone telling you that you’ll have to live with it. Many of you may place other priorities higher than the priority of attending to your health. Such as work, vacations, home projects, school, or something the media has entranced you into wanting. Have you allocated money toward your wants or toward your needs? Is one of your goals to regain or maintain your health? As a natural health care physician, of course my message is to put your health first, but I’m not the only one that you’ve heard this from.

Over 2,500 years ago, the classic Chinese medical text, The Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Internal Medicine gives us some insight on preventative health.

“If the disease is treated after it has already formed or the physician attempts to suppress an illness after it has already shown symptoms, it will be too late, just like to dig a well until one is thirsty or begin to forge weapons after the battle has already begun.”

Superior physicians were described in this text to be those that interested their patients in herbs of longevity and tonification, aiming to balance Qi. Inferior physicians were described as those who had to continually prescribe medicinal herbs for their patients, similar to modern day pharmaceutical drug use for chronic disease. Isn’t it time to make your health a personal goal and priority? Consider trying a different, more natural approach to health with traditional Chinese medicine.

After two decades as a practicing pharmacist, Dr. Shipe realized that many of his patients weren't improving; rather, they were worsening due to medication toxicity. Recognizing the urgent need for change, he shifted his practice to natural medicine, concentrating on women's health as his specialty. This critical choice marked the start of a fascinating journey into holistic medicine, in which Dr. Shipe aimed to revolutionize healthcare by combining ancient wisdom with modern thinking.

Understanding the complexities of women's health and the need for a more individualized, holistic approach, Dr. Shipe curated a selection of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies aimed at addressing the underlying causes of health imbalances. From acupuncture to herbal medicine, each aspect was carefully chosen to provide balance and restore harmony to his patients' lives. Thus, Women's Traditional Chinese Healing evolved as a safe haven for women to begin their transformation journey toward optimal health and well-being. With Dr. Shipe's vision and expertise, the practice has continued to thrive, empowering women to regain control of their health and embrace a new way of healing that honors their bodies, minds, and spirits.


What Our Clients Are Saying

"Dr. Shipe is truly one of a kind (and I mean that in the best way possible). He is SO knowledgeable and understanding and genuinely cares for his patients. After struggling with Western medicine to treat the same problem I’ve had for decades, I decided to try a more holistic approach and I am so happy that I did. I’m so grateful to have found this practice and I’m going to keep coming back."
