Acupuncture and the Opioid Crisis

By |June 27th, 2018|acupuncture, Back Pain, Chinese Medicine, Drugs, Pain|

By Dr. David Martin, Acupuncture Physician, D.O.M.

 

The Opioid Crisis is making headlines these days.  National leaders are beginning to pay attention to this ongoing and expanding situation of overuse of opioids, a class of substances  which include heroin as well as prescription pain killers such as Oxycodone, codeine, morphine, or Fentanyl.  Essentially the opioids interact with nerve and brain function. These medications are very strong and have a powerful effect on the entire body, brain and mind.

 

Since the 1990’s, when the amount of opioids prescribed to patients began to grow, the number of overdoses and deaths from prescription opioids […]

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).

REISHI “QUEEN” OF THE MUSHROOMS

THIS FOOD IS KILLING US, SOFTLY, SLOWLY

Roundup

Wayne Dyer, a well-established self-help and personal growth guru, recently said to a crowd of 3,000 people: “You can change your consciousness by changing your food.”  Our brains become clearer and our bodies function best when we eat foods our body is capable of using for fuel, and there’s a lot out there these days that we cannot process.   In Wayne’s own experience, very debilitating conditions can reverse with food changes.    For example, his wife had Grand Mal epileptic seizures until his friend, Dr. David Perlmutter, suggested she stop eating wheat.  […]

Avoid The Biggest Prescription Killer: 13 Non Drug Solutions for Pain

By |April 29th, 2014|Anxiety/Stress, Chinese Medicine, Drugs, Pain|

What Killed Seymour?

The death last month of actor Seymour Hoffman raised the awareness in our nation that there may be a direct connection between prescription painkillers and heroine use.  Indeed, there are plenty of studies providing evidence of this.

Not only that, but researchers have been gathering shocking data about the over prescription, inappropriate prescription (e.g. to pregnant women!), and overuse of painkillers.   People get hooked on the painkillers, and then when they can’t get the prescriptions, some resort to street drugs.  That’s what killed Seymour.  He apparently got a super powerful batch of heroine, and the needle was […]

Back Pain

By |April 26th, 2011|Back Pain|

Back Pain

This medicine is very effective at relieving Back Pain. Back Pain is a very common ailment, especially among the elderly.  In western medical terms can be caused by damaged disks, alignment problems, soft tissue problems referred pain, or muscle problems.  In my practice I work to get to the root of the back pain, because the pain itself is often a symptom of the real problem.  I treat both the immediate pain and the root of the problem at the same time

In Asian Medicine we have a variety of causes for back pain.
