She performs many alternative therapies, including acupuncture, herbal therapy, and food therapy. They can help treat patients as a whole by addressing many health issues, including musculoskeletal disorders, neurologic diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, behavior problems, renal disease, and other conditions.
