Change is often not easy nor wanted. Yet here we all are…changing…even rising to the occasion, and even more so adapting. Time actually becomes our friend as we adapt to different external expectations and rhythms, if we let it be.

What I have felt and witnessed during this COVID separation time for the people of this planet is a forced change into our innate ability of adaptability. Each of […]

CHINESE MEDICINE: LONGEVITY PRACTICES AND FOODS

Chinese Medicine: Longevity Practices and Foods

Article 2 of  3:  Live Long & Prosper Series

Chinese Medicine is an ancient, natural medicine.  Asian masters teach that we each are born with a certain amount of “Jing” (Life Force Energy), and when we have expended it, that’s all there is.  Therefore, it is important to be judicious with your Jing.  Why waste your Jing on being mad at the mailman or feeling mistreated by a co-worker or family member?  Focus your Jing on creating positive relationships and a beautiful environment for yourself…and others on […]

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.

Scary Results From Last Week’s Email

 

We’ve had a ton of feedback on last week’s email, and the truth is pretty scary–dangerous drug/herb interactions, improper use of herbs and supplements, and more are happening all too commonly. We also discovered that not everyone discloses or remembers everything they are taking when they fill out the physician intake forms at our clinic or their other primary doctor’s offices. We want to stress how vital it is that your medical professionals know everything that you are taking, down to your powdered green supplements. Because we are concerned that there are more of […]

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for Autoimmune Disorders

Over 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue. Autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease, Addison’s disease, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is real suffering…and there is a LOT of it out there, but few real answers. Most of the standard treatments in Western Medicine have unpleasant or even dangerous side effects. The problem is they are not solving the problem…and they can be causing others.

Due to the complexity of treating autoimmune disorders, […]
