Sick and tired of being Sick and tired?

Doing your best, but just feeling exhausted? Stress of managing life-work balance getting you (and your loved ones) down? Is your 9-5 affecting your health? Wishing you were doing what you loved, but accepting the comfort and stability of a job you don’t?

If you answered yes to any of these questions ask yourself how life would be for you if things continued so FOREVER… What would you gain and lose? How would you feel about life in 5 / 10 / 20 years?

Then ask yo...

When to see your Acupuncturist

When to see your Acupuncturist

So, a patient walked in and I asked how he was doing – “Well, if I was doing well I wouldn’t be here.” I hear that sometimes, but did you know you don’t have to be sick or in pain to come in for a visit? So here is a little snippet about when to see your Acupuncturist, when I go, and what I experience from a practitioner’s point of view.

Quick answer – go often, go for anything, go for nothing, go for everything. Everyone should come in at least once per season at minimal (think of it like watering a plant). If you really want to get specific, come at the corresponding time related to your chinese animal...

I Ching: throwing coins to follow your path

Not quite Hansel and Gretel but almost…  The I Ching [Yi (E) Jing] is also known as the Book of Changes. It is likely written in 2000-3000 BC and is one of the bases for Daoism. I find it a wonderful help in guiding me through some of life’s questions. It is meant to assist you on your path so you can be in tune with your own nature. It is really and truly wonderful

The Daoist ideal is to have crystal-clear perception that enables you to move naturally at the right time. Wasting no effort, and having clarity. Wu Wei – the art of ‘doing without action’ or doing nothing yet accomplishing everything. It means to be so in touch with our environment and the people in it that our actions flow naturally from the situation – go with the flow...

Healing ourselves of the Flu epidemic

The flu season is amongst us. The media reports hit on increasing hospitalizations and nation-wide death tolls, 59 of those being pediatric. However, only 23.3% of those hospitalized are positive for the flu.7 So why the hysteria? In the times of mass hysteria, informing yourself is key. Peter Doshi, a researcher whose graduate thesis from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine focused on the politics of influenza policies, wrote in the British Medical Journal: “If CDC (Center for Disease Control) viral surveillance data is correct, then in recent years true influenza viruses have only caused an average of 12 percent of influenza-like illness.” 1
