Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is very similar to Chinese Medicine by using a patient-centered approach to focus primarily on identifying the cause of illness, not just treating the symptoms of illness. It treats the cause, identified through comprehensive medical history.

Welcome To The Emperor’s Medicine Acupuncture and Functional Medicine Clinic

Try the Same Thing, You Will Get the Same Results. Try Something Different and Get Different Results!

Selma Gladney welcomes you to the website of The Emperor’s Medicine, an Oriental medicine, acupuncture, and functional medicine clinic located in Naperville, Illinois.

The purpose of this clinic is to help as many people as possible in their quest for optimum health and to educate them about the benefits of Oriental medicine and functional medicine so they may, in turn, educate others.

As the clinic for acupuncture Naperville trusts, we provide our patients with better health and well-being. Acupuncture is a proven, side-effect-free therapy that dates back over 3,000 years. We also use natural medicine at its best to treat patients through dietary therapy that uses food to help heal the body, functional medicine, and Chinese herbs.


Taking part in many health care organizations in the state of Illinois as well as national levels Selma shows dedication to the profession of acupuncture and functional medicine.

Many people rely on The Emperor’s Medicine as a Naperville weight loss solution as well as for treatments to help relieve their pain, menopause symptoms, menstrual disorders, depression, anxiety, stress reduction, autoimmune diseases, and much more.  We treat women, men, and teens in our Naperville clinic.

At The Emperor’s Medicine, we specialize in women’s health, acupuncture for cancer patients, autoimmune diseases, and digestive disorders as we take the time to get to the root of the problem.

Acupuncture, Oriental medicine, and functional medicine are very successful in the treatment of a multitude of conditions. Many people try them as a last resort to serious and complicated medical problems and find that it can help them whereas other treatments could not.


Both Dr. Selma and Dr. Gary saved my life. Not only did they share the vision that HEALING the thyroid is possible, but as a team they also carried out the goal by showing me it is ATTAINABLE. I am beyond grateful that I found them and am happy to say I am off of thyroid medicine and feeling much better. This was done in a natural way which compliments your natural physiological make-up , absolutely zero drugs. The importance of feeding and nourishing your body is emphasized, as well as the modality of acupuncture which has worked for thousands of years. If you have any auto-immune disorders, know that it can be healed and you can have a wonderful quality of life.  Thank you

The Emperor’s Medicine!

"Thyroid Problems Gone"


– Jamie V.

Hi, Hello everyone! I’ve made much much progress here with my hypothyroidism. And thanks to Selma and Dr. Tennant, my future, my healthy future is here. This actual acupuncture and functional medicine clinic features some of the most intelligent, caring people and a great massage therapist. A great friend recommended this place to me and to pay it forward I want to say that I am confident that The Emperor’s Medicine will be your next favorite place too. 
Could you tell us how were you feeling before you came to The Emperor’s Medicine?
I was tired all of the time, very sluggish, I had no energy to move around. Emotions were up and down, a little bit of anxiety, a little bit of depression, when I lay down to go to sleep, I couldn’t go to sleep. I just could not function properly and I knew that something was wrong. The panels that were given to me by my original doctor did not cover everything and I felt that we needed something more. 
How are you feeling now?
Lots more energy, better sleep! I’ve improved greatly, I’m less emotional, more supportive and more looking forward to my future.
