The new Coronavirus (dubbed “COVID-19” or “nCoV-2019”) is likely the hottest topic of discussion around the world today. What I’m not hearing or seeing in the media is discussion and information about natural and holistic medicines and how we have viable protective and anti-viral options available right now! What I am seeing is the hype that scares everyone. This article will address several of the available herbs, foods, and more that can be found in your kitchen and at our clinic or other natural health stores.

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 […]

NEW MEDICINE: 
GUIDING LIGHTS OF THE FUTURE

This is a powerful time in Medicine!  A few game changers are coming to the frontline to radically SHIFT the possibilities for how healthy we are, how long we live, and how we do it.

GUIDING LIGHT #1: 

MINI MIGHTY MICROBES
They are super tiny;  100,000 may fit on a pinhead.  They were the first life, over 3.5 Billion years ago.  Microbes (bacteria) created our oxygen-rich atmosphere, and they have outlived all 5 major extinctions on our planet. Without them we couldn’t breathe or digest our […]

OIL OF OREGANO: Can it take the place of Antibiotics?

By |March 29th, 2016|Allergies & Autoimmune, Drugs, Environmental Health, Food as Medicine, Intestinal Health, Uncategorized|

oregano-oilI’ve gargled with it for a few seconds and immediately stopped a sore throat in its tracts.  It was used by Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, in the 5th Century B.C.    I’m talking about Oregano with its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal effects.  It has also been known to kill MRSA, Listeria, and other pathogens.  And with modern antibiotics becoming less and less effective in the face of new and more virulent strains of bacteria, we need to go back to our ancestors’ medicine chests.

Part 3:   Natural Solutions to Treat and Reverse Autoimmune Disease

 

THE ROLE OF CHINESE MEDICINE

 

In Chinese Medicine, so-called auto-immune diseases are treated as misbehaving or weak immune systems, and as an Acupuncture Physician, I am trained to use specific acupuncture points to perform what is termed “Tonifying or Strengthening Defensive Qi”.   This treatment creates a boosting effect and helps the immune system behave more correctly.   For example, acupuncture frequently demonstrates immediate results in pain reduction in the joints….pain and inflammation which may be caused by an “auto-immune condition” […]

PaAutoimmune imagert 2:  Your TWO Immune Systems

What has become clear to me (and Chinese Medicine as a whole) over the years is that Autoimmune diseases are NOT well understood by Conventional Medicine.  The common thinking is that the body is “turning against itself” for some puzzling, unknown reason.   Oftentimes I believe that pathogens, e.g. mercury, inflammatory proteins created by GMO foods, stress hormones, etc. are physically present.  The immune system is attacking them, but our healthy cells are caught in the cross fire.   Although we can’t SEE these pathogens with our current […]
