Ponton Establishes South Carolina Oriental Medicine Association

Dr. Marina Ponton, owner of Greenville Natural Health Center, has established the South Carolina Oriental Medicine Association, a professional organization affiliated with the American Oriental Medicine Association. The new statewide association is dedicated to the integrity, safety, excellence, and advancement of Traditional Chinese Medicine by adhering to the highest standards of the profession.
An acupuncture physician specializing in women's health, Ponton recently returned from the
Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China where she participated in the three-week study program on integrating Chinese herbal formulas into Western treatments for endocrine disorders. Ponton was selected as the only member of her 2010 doctorate class at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland to attend the women's health initiative.
Ponton opened Greenville Natural Health Center in 2007, specializing in women's health and wellness. The Center integrates biomedicine (Western medicine) with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), utilizing a holistic (mind-body) approach to issues such as chronic fatigue, menopause and infertility. Ponton was featured in the February 2009 issue of Alive magazine, Canada's leading publication in the field of health and wellness, about her success in treating infertility with acupuncture. Her studies include the American University of Paris, FAMU University in Prague, The University of Miami, and The Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine.
