I learned about Acupuncture and alternative medicine first hand as a patient. I went through 15 years of not feeling well going to doctor after doctor. Finally, I decided to try the Holistic approach after 3 weeks of herbs, dietary rotation, and acupuncture treatments I felt better than I ever had. After such an experience I decided there is something to Holistic Health and this will be my path in the future.

WHAT IS

What is Acupuncture:
Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated and prevented illness for over twenty-three centuries. The goal of this dynamic and integrated health care system is to activate the natural, self-healing abilities of the body. While it can remedy ailments and alter states of mind, Chinese medicine can also enhance recuperative power, immunity and the capacity for pleasure, work, and creativity.

NUTRITION COUNSELING

“You Are What You Eat” The old proverbial saying. Over the past several decades, emerging scientific evidence about health and nutrition has resulted in changing food consumption patterns in the US. Nutrition and life style encourages more time and effort be spent on disease prevention instead of waiting to treat disease once it manifests. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” - Hippocrates!

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is based on the assumption that Qi courses through channels, or meridians, in the body just as water flows from spring, to stream, to river and to sea. Qi is our energy force for movement, thinking, feeling and work. Thin, solid, sterile stainless steel acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points invigorating Qi.

GUT - MICROBIOME

Gas, bloating, brain fog, fatigue, constipation, diarrhea and more. Low grade inflammation could be the cause of our pain and tenderness. The gut is technically the gastrointestinal tract or digestive system - a pathway from our mouth all the way to the end. 70 -80% of our immune cells are present in the gut. The gut microbiome plays and important roll in the body responding to injury or infection. Hippocrates stated "all disease begins in the gut"

GUT & BRAIN CONNECTION

Hidden in the walls of the digestive system is our brain in the gut. It is revolutionizing medicine to understanding the links between digestion, mood and even the way we think. Physically connected by the Vagus nerve which controls messages to the Gut, Heart, Lung and other vital organs. Chemically connected my hormones and neurotransmitters that send messages that pass between the gut and the brain.

GUT & IMMUNE SYSTEM

Much of our immune response depends upon the gastrointestinal microbiome. Studies suggest that maintaining a healthy gut influences the balance of our innate immune system. The foods we eat affect the diversity and composition of bacteria in the gut which affects the immune system. Fiber rich diets reduces the inflammatory response.

HERBAL REMEDIES AND SUPPLEMENTS

Herbal medicine has powerful healing properties. Western drugs control symptoms but does not affect the whole body. For example: antibiotics eliminate bacteria but does not help the immune system to fight off future infection. Herbs treat the underlying condition and rarely cause side-effects. Herbal medicine is made from whole food supplements that provide nutrients for the body to maintain balance and homeostasis. Herbal remedies are phytotherapeutic and nutritional.

Let Food Be Your Medicine

Food has the powers to nourish, protect, and heal your body

In the 4th Century BCE, the Greek physician Hippocrates authored the famous oath, “Let food be they medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Every food we eat contains a symphony of vitamins, minerals and plant compounds (phytochemicals) that may reduce the risk of disease that interact to help fend off disease.  Without sufficient amounts of these nutrients, the body simply cannot operate at full capacity: our function is impaired and chronic disease can result.
