DR. KLERONOMOS Discusses Moxibustion Feat on The Doctors 

Published on Mar 22, 2014
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that entails burning moxa, or mugwort, a small and spongy herb. Dr. Kleronomos demonstrates how the technique is performed. The moxa is placed on or above strategic acupuncture points on a person's body and then burned. Experts in Chinese medicine explain that the heat created is thought to activate stagnant or cold Qi, or life-force energy. 

Moxibustion therapy is considered ideal for patients who have conditions exacerbated by their diminished Qi, such as colds, cough, flu, asthma, digestive disorders and menstrual cramps.

Dr. Kleronomos demonstrates Apitherapy Treatment. Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) is the therapeutic application of venom from several related species of honeybee, typically, Apis mellifera (European spp.) and Apis cerana (Asian spp.). Bee Venom Therapy is also called Apitherapy, or “bee therapy” (from the Latin “apis” which means bee). A good way to view BVT is to consider it “venom acupuncture” or “apipuncture”. BVT was used in many ancient cultures. Bee venom contains active compounds that have therapeutic properties. The venom is administered either by direct sting from the bee itself, or by manual injection of venom, via syringe, which can be mixed with anesthetic. The practice is considered a subset of a natural medicine system.


Manage Chronic Pain With Natural Therapies Featuring Dr. Kleronomos

A study published in the Journal of Pain reports that 19% of  American adults—almost one in five—suffer from persistent pain. Among people over 60, that portion reaches almost 30%.

Most doctors approach pain problems with a prescription pad, without ever considering other factors that can help mitigate and eventually end chronic pain. But Dr. Kleronomos is an exception.

He is a doctor of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, a nurse practitioner, and clinical director of the Fibromyalgia and Neuromuscular Pain Center of Oregon. In a thoroughly comprehensive approach to pain management, Dr. Kleronomos’ clinic incorporates natural medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, psychology, diet, biofeedback, injections, bee venom therapy, functional nutrition, and many other therapies. For those unable to visit his Salem, Oregon clinic, he recently agreed to answer some questions for us about chronic pain and how it can be safely alleviated.
