Unplug from it all!

Here’s what I’ve come to know in 28 years of practice: It’s our nervous systems! Long before stress becomes physical tension that we notice and feel, our nervous systems have already sounded the alarm. “Uh-oh. Danger! Muscles, prepare to tighten up in protection!”

 

It’s our nervous system, it’s our nervous system, it’s our nervous system!

 

And the way we live–the blessing and curse of technology–is our early undoing. We are “on” and in reaction to someone […]

Demonizing Coconut Oil… Again!?

By |July 5th, 2017|Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Food as Medicine, Uncategorized|

DEMONIZING COCONUT OIL…Again!?

 

It all started on June 16th with an article in USA Today proclaiming:

   “Coconut Oil isn’t healthy.   It’s never been healthy.”   

and

   “The American Heart Association recently released a report advising against the use of coconut oil.”

View the full USA Today article

         Recommendation regarding the AHA’s demonization of Coconut Oil:  

                  Think further than your instant fears.

 

 OUR ‘TAKE’ IN A NUTSHELL

This article looks like it was written by the Vegetable Oil Manufacturing Association.  In our opinion, we would like to see more science and actual studies, […]

Chocolate as Medicine

This article is written for Lotus Blossom Clinic, we provide acupuncture, massage, Reike, and food healing consultations.

TRUE CONFESSIONS:    Six years ago I became a confirmed Chocoholic.  It happened when I began to grasp the medicinal scope of this heavenly substance.  And when my neck inflammation “melted” after 30 years of whip-lash injury suffering ….well I was “in” with Chocolate.  Who knew?   In its raw and powerful form, Chocolate is a Natural Medicine from Central & South America, and its use has been documented for thousands of years.   Modern […]

Mighty Mushroom Series From (Acupuncture in Fort Myers) Lotus Blossom Clinic

REISHI “QUEEN” OF THE MUSHROOMS

“Asian history has more medical documentation on Reishi than any other mushroom.  In 2005, it took away my grandfather’s chest pains for 5 years…beginning on the day he started using it.

    

For advanced-stage cancer, asthma, depression and a long list of conditions, I think Reishi.  But for cardiovascular, it is my #1 pick.”Jeff Primack, author of Conquering ANY Disease, The Ultimate High-Phytochemical Food-Healing System

The Chinese Royalty had it pretty good.  Anything rare and precious […]

IS YOUR THYROID IN DISTRESS?

By |April 5th, 2017|acupuncture, Aging Gracefully, Allergies & Autoimmune, Anxiety/Stress, Food as Medicine, Uncategorized|

IS YOUR THYROID IN DISTRESS?

 

Over twenty-five percent (25%) of Americans have Hashimoto’s Disease, which triggers the immune system to attack the thyroid gland, sending the endocrine system into chaos. The inflammation (or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis) caused by this attack on the thyroid will typically cause hypothyroidism (an under-active thyroid) and slow the production of thyroid hormone and essential body functions (i.e., metabolism).   You may not be at the full-blown disease state yet, but you may be experiencing early, unpleasant symptoms.

 

Are you female, between 30-50 years old?  The […]

Medical Mushroom Series – Cordyceps

Medicinal Mushroom Series

CORDYCEPS THE CONQUERER

Medicinal Mushrooms are fairly closely related to us, evolutionarily-speaking.  We share about 30% of our DNA with mushrooms, and both species use enzymes to break down nutrients to sustain ourselves.  Most mushrooms break down plant matter externally, and in the process, create soil and access to nutrients which Nature uses to create new life.   We humans take food inside our bodies where our digestive system uses enzymes to break down nutrients which we can absorb.

 

In an earlier version of  his book, Jeff Primack, author […]

LION’S MANE FOR THE BRAIN & NERVES

 

MEET THE MUSHROOM MAN

We first encountered Paul Stamets on YouTube.   I could not rip myself away for a second.   His talk at a Bioneers’ Conference in 2015 was riveting and inspiring.   This man and his wife have literally spent years in the forests, mostly in Oregon and Washington States.  He holds hundreds of patents and is widely regarded as a top science expert in the field of mycology.  He has a mission on this planet and has found hundreds of solutions using […]

What IS Autoimmune Disease?

It affects millions of Americans, and it’s becoming more and more widespread.  “It” goes by names like Multiple Sclerosis, Celiac’s Disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Psoriasis, Type 1 Diabetes, and more…

Cereal Killers!!

By |January 18th, 2017|Allergies & Autoimmune, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Food as Medicine, Uncategorized|

By David Martin – Acupuncture Physician practicing Holistic Medicine, serving Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh and Naples.

Common Breakfast Mistakes
The most common mistake people make with their breakfast is to eat typical breakfast foods, most of which are highly processed and loaded with sugars. This includes waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and other breakfast sandwiches. These are some of the absolute worst foods you can eat. They satiate your current hunger but set you up for metabolic disasters and fuel excess body fat and obesity-related diseases.
There are many thousands of well done peer reviewed studies that support the harmful effects […]

It’s a typical January topic:  Create The New YOU in the New Year!  But you’ve never heard this method to lose the weight and feel great!   This method is entirely novel due to a silver bullet tool.   Science is proving that it is the Gut Microbial Balance that’s keeping people from losing and keeping the weight off.

 

IT ALL STARTED IN 2008. 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded and kicked off a second, major research project called The Human Microbiome.  (The first one was the Human Genome Project.)  These […]

 “Stunning research reveals gut bug balance causing everything from diabetes to colon cancer!” –Glenn S. Rothfeld from his new book, The Atlas of Natural Cures

 

The science of the human body’s essential and symbiotic relationship with bacteria and other microbes is continually growing.  Over the last decade, scientific evidence has begun to create a landscape of connections to healing options for specific conditions.  This has been on the radar of naturopathic and functional medicine practitioners for decades, and now some Western M.D.’s are coming to the party, and that’s […]
