Traditional Asian Medicine

Have you ever wanted to know more about the traditional medicine that developed in the Orient? Would you like to know whether you could benefit from these centuries-old practices? If you are interested in acupuncture, moxabustion, or Oriental herbal medicine, then you can come to our site for information on some of these traditional medical systems.

Traditional Oriental medicine, which includes Chinese, Japanese, Tibetan, African, Unani-Tibb, and Ayurvedic medicines, are rarely mastered arts that are very popular with patients in Europe and the Far East. For more than 2500 years, generations of patients and physicians have depended on traditional medicines for preventative care and basic medical treatment. Traditional medicines also can help to deal with complex disorders of long standing.

In contrast to Western pathology-based medicine, traditional medical systems that developed in Asia and Africa emphasize a patient centered format, where the treatment is individualized to the specific problem that presents in the individual.

Unlike the centralized, expensive and inefficient mega medical centers of modern Western medicine, traditional medical systems are based on a much smaller but much more important unit, a relationship between patient and physician.

Dr. L.B. Grotte, M.D., was the first physician in Ohio to be board certified in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. He has studied Oriental medicine since 1972 and has practiced Oriental medicine in Cleveland for more than 27 years. Our small practice specializes in creating individualized treatment plans combining Western and Oriental methods.
