Acupuncture and Nutritional Support
If you are one of the millions of people who made a New Year’s resolution last month to eat better and make healthier choices in 2023, then it might be time to take stock of how that process is going. Are you already off the wagon and back to your unhealthy habits? Or are you keeping your eye on your goals and making progress? No matter which side of the coin you fall on, you might want to talk to your acupuncturist about your nutritional goals. They can be a wealth of information and help as you look to build a better and stronger you. continue reading
Food as Medicine
Mama Always Said: You Are What You Eat
Maybe mom really did know best when it came to nutrition. As research has shown, what we eat can actually impact our health profoundly. Over the years, we have learned that our dietary choices can influence our risk of disease. And some have made it a profitable business to teach us new ways to look at food (anti-inflammatory diet, Keto, heart healthy, etc.). continue reading
Ear Congestion, Jaw Tension, and the Main Supplement to Try.
Many of my current patients are complaining about:
- Muscle tension
- Ear fullness
What is going on???
When we have one problem like muscle tension, it often leads to another problem, like poor lymphatic drainage and ear pain. And being worried about this ear pain can create more muscle tension. This is why magnesium deficiency is super common now.
Magnesium is depleted by STRESS and SUGAR.
Ok. It’s not a big deal if the stress lasts a short period of time. Our body readjusts. Our cup refills. We feel better after a few days or a couple weeks. continue reading
The Liver and Gall Bladder
Your key to weight loss, less pain, fat digestion and hormone production
Oh, to be young forever! Thin. Vital. Have a healthy sex drive.
It starts with cleansing once a year – and very specifically with cleansing the Gall Bladder.
Your Gall Bladder is a sack that stores your bile. Bile breaks down fats and should be a watery substance, but over time it can thicken until you form gall stones. Many people end up having the Gall Bladder removed for Gall Stones. However, it’s pretty easy to thin the bile.
Bile should squirt into your stomach when you eat fatty foods to break them down. Pain in the right rib side over the liver and the gall bladder and pain in the right side back between the spine and shoulder blades can be due to your gall bladder.
Fats are so critical in the body. Our brain needs adequate fat as does our myelin nerve sheath as does our hormones – it’s all about that good healthy fat.
If our bile flow is not working, then fat can accumulate in the body forming little fat deposits or lipomas. Our liver can get fatty. Guess what else your liver does? It breaks down excess estradiol helping to prevent cancer. Guess what else your liver does? 80% of your thyroid hormone converts in your liver.
So, get together with me once a year to schedule a cleanse. If your liver enzymes are elevated or your gall bladder has already been removed, there are still protocols to turn things around!
Some of my patients work with me by phone or zoom remotely. Some of my clients are on a nutrition and herbal approach without any acupuncture – so don’t let the distance stop you from reaching out for a consultation or an online appointment.
Fixing the root issue will set you up for long term health and may prevent diseases later in life!
Schedule a phone or zoom herbal/nutritional consult today! I love, love helping nip these things in the bud, shrink the waist, and get rid of embarrassing or troubling digestive symptoms! Schedule Now by clicking here.
