A NEW LOOK AT CANCER PREVENTION: 

 

PROMOTING NATURE’S RHYTHMS IN YOUR BODY

Article #1 in a 3-part series

Read Article #2      A Critical Factor:  Managing Stress!

 

A recent article by the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida states that Cancer has surpassed heart disease as the leading killer in America.  This is quite plausible when you see the CDC’s numbers for 2016:  Cardiovascular disease took 635,260 lives and cancer accounted for 598,038 lives.  Among the myriad of theories and methods for using natural and holistic medicine to […]

Going Mainstream: Integrative Care for Breast (and other) Cancers

By |July 31st, 2018|acupuncture, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Chinese Medicine, Food as Medicine, Pain, Reiki & Other Energy Medicine|

You likely already know that including holistic and natural medicine in most, if not all, medical treatment plans is a wise idea.  In this article, we take a quick dive into the world of integrative treatments for breast cancer. The implications of all the research and clinical experience indicates the efficacy of integrative treatments for many, if not all, cancers.

 

But the big news here is that movement toward institutionalizing currently-termed “alternative” treatments is being–in essence–blessed and starting to move into mainstream medicine.  It’s called Integrative Medicine, and there are several early […]

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 […]

CHOCOLATE AS MEDICINE

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 […]

MEDICINE IS CHANGING–DRASTICALLY
Sticky Stuff

The Stickiness Factor

PART 2 of 4 articles

According to Wikipedia, the Stickiness Factor is:  The specific content of a message that renders its impact memorable. Popular children’s television programs such as Sesame Street and Blue’s Clues pioneered the properties of the stickiness factor, thus enhancing effective retention of educational content as well as entertainment value.”  This article will explore some of the factors that we believe are “sticky” (as per Malcolm Gladwell’s “Tipping Point” book).  There are critical factors which are helping America alter the course of its […]

ARE YOU ADDICTED TO THIS POISON?

Don’t ask someone to avoid THIS food!    It’s considered almost sacred, and any attempts to suggest  otherwise are often met with active resistance.   Yes, I’m talking about wheat, and that means all forms of it, including whole wheat and even spouted wheat (which is actually worse because it’s more “alive”).   I mentioned to someone today that I was writing this article.  His response was a quick and defensive:    “I’m GOOD with gluten!  I have no issues with it.”    Little does he […]

Tuina — Chinese Body Work

By |June 3rd, 2015|Uncategorized|

Tuina and Chinese Body Work

Chinese Body work has been developed over thousands of years with countless healers dedicating their skill and energy to develop the techniques and philosophy that has gone into Tuina today.

During the Han Dynasty 206 BC to 220 BC it was known as Anmo ( press and rub)

During the Ming Dynasty 1368 to 1644 AD the term Tuina (push and hold) evolved.

Tuina is one of the basic skills of Chinese medicine. It is often used in combination with Acupuncture or […]

CAN YOU PREVENT OR HEAL ALZHEIMERS?

Want to maintain an alert and mentally healthy brain?  Avoiding some– and welcoming other– specific products and foods into your life can help you maintain your mental acuity well into old age.  This article will focus on avoiding aluminum which recent studies show are too abundant in our modern world.  Aluminum—along with mercury– is neurotoxic, targeting your central nervous system, which can lead to serious immunological and neurodegenerative disorders…such as Alzheimers.

What Kind of Trouble is Aluminum Causing?
The signs and symptoms of aluminum toxicity are highly similar to the symptoms of autism, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and […]
