East-West Medicine

East-West Medicine is More Than Just Acupuncture

In today’s world of information and technology, no medicine standing alone is enough to provide the comprehensive approach to care that patients demand and deserve.

Eastern Medicine offers a functional approach that can diagnose and successfully treat problems that Western Medicine may deem idiopathic or due to aging without a satisfactory treatment.  The Functional Approach of Eastern Medicine is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and may include Acupuncture; Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine; Physical Medicine; Medical Qi Gong;  Cupping; and how to use food for medicine with Diet and NutritionWestern Medicine offers laboratory testing, blood tests, x-rays, MRI’s, ultrasound imaging, pharmaceutical drugs, surgical solutions, and Genome Functional Medicine.

Combining the best of both is the unprecedented foundation of East-West Medicine.  East-West Medicine aims to offer the most comprehensive, safe, natural and self-sustainable cure to your medical issues.  Additionally, East-West Medicine has the depth to offer solutions for continuous wellness with a Sustainable Wellness Track™.

Patient Testimonials For East-West Medicine

Richard:  “I went to Dr. Barrett after my ENT said that there was nothing that could be done for my tinnitus. It was preventing me from sleeping and was incredibly annoying. Dr. Barrett helped me, and I am now over 95 % better. Many days, I am 100 % better. He’s very caring and explains things in a compassionate, helping manner. I am very lucky to have found him.”

Shirley:  “I first went to see Dr. Barrett after taking antibiotics for a week in order to fight the flu. My chief complaint was residual symptoms from the flu that the antibiotics did not seem to help. These were fatigue and difficulty breathing. I could not believe that after one treatment both symptoms were permanently relieved.

My second visit to Dr. Barrett was due to lower back pain which I have experienced off and on ever since my pregnancy eight years ago. After one treatment my symptoms were permanently relieved.

My third treatment from Dr. Barrett was due to a urinary tract infection with blood in my urine and excessive bleeding during menstruation. Normally, I would have chosen antibiotics as a preferred treatment, however, he assured me of a reliable herbal solution to be taken in pill form. After day one, the blood stopped in my urine, and after three days the infection had disappeared as well. Additionally, my next menstrual period had decreased from my usual seven days with two days of heavy bleeding down to four days with no heavy bleeding. During my third treatment Dr. Barrett noticed a discoloration of my skin due to a bruise which never completely healed. I told him that I bruised easily. For this he prescribed an herbal formula which I took for three weeks. During that time the discoloration which I had for over three-years disappeared and I have not noticed any further bruising.

I also saw Dr. Barrett for an acute shoulder injury from strenuous exercise. The injury had hurt so badly, I could not focus on my work. After one treatment from Dr. Barrett the pain had decreased 75% and he assured me it would be gone the next day…and it was.

Dr. Barrett has convinced me that East-West Medicine is very effective in so many ways that I never imagined possible. Instead of immediately seeing an MD, I prefer to see Dr. Barrett first as my primary care physician.”
