CBD for You and Me!

By |May 1st, 2018|Aging Gracefully, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Drugs, Pain, Uncategorized|

CBD oil is a Natural Medicine found in the Cannabis plant.  No one can get “high” on it.  But it is an effective medicine for multiple issues as well as for longevity.  CBD regenerates the human body and brain to be more youthful.  It changes lives, and the cities and states who embrace it may experience significant growth and a revitalized economy.  But, as the popularity of the Cannabis plant has grown over the past decade, the pharmaceutical industry has been busy behind the scenes.  There are currently serious legal obstacles posed by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration).

Mission Impossible part 3: Energy Healing Medicine

By |December 7th, 2017|Anxiety/Stress, Food as Medicine, Reiki & Other Energy Medicine|

What Is Energy Healing (Medicine)?

Energy healing is in the realm beyond what we can “see” these are forces which affect us on the physical level every bit as much as the medicines we use. Power for change is clearly available in immune-boosting foods such as medicinal mushrooms, detoxing probiotic foods, and pain relieving massage and acupuncture. If you think about it, though, the actual healing takes place inside, at the level beyond what our eyes can see and our hands can touch.

How Effective is Energy Healing?

As with anything, some things […]

Stories of Healing:  Acupuncture

Did you know that Acupuncture is: 

Highly effective for much more than pain and stress/anxiety? The full list is too long to write here.

  • Acupuncture can help reverse the damage of strokes—the sooner treatment is begun, the better the recovery.
  • Acupuncture can help turn a breach baby and is highly effective at inducing labor—with no danger to mother or baby.

THE HIDDEN DANGER IN NATURAL DISASTERS

By |September 5th, 2017|acupuncture, Allergies & Autoimmune, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Chinese Medicine, Food as Medicine, Intestinal Health|

“Discovering more joy does not save us from the inevitability of hardship and heartbreak. In fact, we may cry more easily, but we will laugh more easily too. Perhaps we are just more alive. Yet as we discover more joy, we can face suffering in a way that ennobles rather than embitters. We have hardship without becoming hard. We have heartbreaks without being broken.” 
― Desmond TutuThe Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

 

It would seem this summer has been more stressful than usual in our world.  There […]

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 […]

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.

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…

 

“It” is a disorder of the body’s immune system in which the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own body tissue–which it “believes” to be foreign.

 

There are many symptoms […]

 “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 […]

Rx for Healing: The “Do Nothing” Day

Rx for Healing: The “Do Nothing” Day

 

Eating a healthy diet, getting sleep, massage, acupuncture, meditating regularly; these are all ways to keep you going and prevent overload from happening; but it does happen. In today’s society, though, even the most holistic person can experience burn out, chronic fatigue, dissatisfaction with life and mental exhaustion.

The bottom line is that we live in a culture of human doing. We are constantly inundated with information and technology. Expectations at work are high, and the technology that brings us closer to loved ones can easily turn into a tool to tether us to […]
