The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.
As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading
Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
Many of our happy patients have noticed that not only do they feel betterthey also lose weight gently and safely! One of the reasons for such a broad spectrum of excellent benefits is that allergies can cause weight gain!
We see a loss of unhealthy pounds when we reduce the overall load from getting regular holistic care; of allergic reactions and the body’s by products. Our bodies also joyfully eliminate the accumulation of toxins from drug treatments!
On Sunday March 9th, the New York Times had a lead story entitled The Fat Drug, about how antibiotics, as used by agribusiness to fatten up farm animals fast, have been implicated as a major factor in obesity among Americans. The drugs are force fed to saturate chickens, cattle, and hogs so that they grow too fat too fast. In turn, when eaten, these foods can make us humans grossly overweight too!
Have you had sinus, skin or digestive problems and have taken OTC or prescribed medications? And when those did not solve the problem, your doctor recommended antibiotics? So, did you notice some unexpected weight gain? Here’s why:
· Food allergens put on pounds! (such as from eating fake foods like commercial wheat)
· Toxins from OTC allergy relief drugs add more!
· The “Fat Drug” antibiotics in our foods and medicines fatten us like farm animals! This affects everyone who eats any non-organic meats or poultry.
Natural healing practitioners understand the processes of your body both in health and in disease. From a western perspective there is evidence that the complex set of immune reactions and inflammation which give us symptoms of allergies can also be responsible for adding pounds to the scale. For example, it is obvious that puffy and swollen tissues retain fluids, so that we hold more water. This gain in water weight is one of the first things lost when Acupuncture treatment starts to adjust our entire bodies towards health! Then the range of other benefits starts to be noticed, which can be quite impressive with regular Acupuncture care.
Chinese astrology tells us 2014 is the Year of the Wood Horse, bringing with it plenty of positive vibes!
The horse is regarded as an intelligent and reliable animal that supposedly helps men achieve success and victory most especially in battle.
The horse is the seventh sign in the Chinese zodiac, looked upon with favor by many Chinese who equate the animal with elegance, power, energy, stability and perseverance.
Join us on Friday, January 31st and get tuned up for an exciting and successful horse race in 2014!
The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has discovered that 9 of 20 tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup were contaminated with mercury. The Institute also found that 55 kid-friendly foods and soft drinks contained total mercury, which is any combination of inorganic, organic or metallic mercury. As you can see, there are plenty of products with higher mercury levels than Coke, but the level is still fairly high:
If you are asking yourself how the heck mercury would have gotten into high-fructose corn syrup, here’s a possible answer: mercury-grade caustic soda and hydrochloric acid are primarily used to separate corn starch from the corn kernel, and to adjust the pH level of the process. The contamination seems to occur when mercury-grade caustic soda and outdated mercury cell technology are used in the production of HFCS. The good news is that mercury-contaminated HFCS is a completely avoidable problem, since mercury-free versions of the two reagents are available.
