Clean teeth and sleeping bravely for Halloween

There have been three times in my life that I slept walked. Three times that I know of. The first was in high school. I got up and started an inexplicable argument with my mom about some dog. To this day we don’t know what dog I was referring to, whether said dog was fictional [...]

Rewriting Reality for Peace of Mind

The other day at the gym what should have been a routine workout turned into a harrowing journey into the depths of my soul. At my warm-up I was presented with a conundrum. The elliptical on the left had a puddle of water pooled up in the foot area about 2 inches deep. The one [...]

The end of morning breath

Since I have been following this protocol I never get that buildup of plaque behind the lower front incisors. I’ve tested with harsh critics and my breath is as fresh when I roll out of bed in the morning as it was when I went to sleep. Hey, it was minty fresh when I went [...]

Buteyko Breathing

Doing nothing more than changing your breathing pattern can ultimately alleviate snoring and sleep apnea, hypertension, hay-fever, high blood pressure, and other ailments. It doesn’t take much time to convince anyone of the importance of breathing. A person can live a month without food, 3 to 4 days without water, but only about 5 to [...]

Herniated disk

Frustration, pain, and persuasive surgeons can lead people to surgery before exhausting less invasive options. But innate healing mechanisms in the body can shrink protruding disks and release pinched nerves without anesthesia, scalpels, or hefty hospital fees. While surgery is sometimes unavoidable, it is wise to first explore other venues of care. The many that [...]

Bone spurs acupuncture tui na

Non-invasive or non-surgical bone spur rehabilitation can seem an impossible task at first glance due to the simple fact that bones are hard. But at closer examination bone spur formation is generally precluded by soft tissue imbalances. These soft tissue imbalances lend themselves quite easily to noninvasive corrective therapies, that when applied ultimately result in [...]

Acupuncture and tui na for carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the impingement of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel (which is the space between the carpal bones that the median nerve passes through to get from the forearm to the wrist). Traditional western therapy involves anti-inflammatory medications, rest, exercise, or surgery to cut the transverse carpal ligament of the wrist [...]

Pain Inflammation Arthritis acupuncture tui na

Not all pain is due to inflammation or arthritis Inflammation is the body’s response to a disease or disorder and not a disease itself. Inflammation is a necessary part of a healthy immune system. Anti-inflammatory medication, NSAIDs, and cortisone injections only stop the body’s response to the disease/ injury and not the disease/ injury itself. [...]

Acupuncture and tui na for plantar fasciitis

Almost any time there is pain, buzzwords like inflammation, inflamed, and the prefix -itis (which just means inflammation) can be thrown out haphazardly because inflammation is a component of most common pain symptoms. More often than not this definition is a comp-out however, as its easy to blame inflammation for pain, but it fails to [...]

Environmental Medicine

This is a theory I came up with when I first started studying Chinese Medicine, inspired by financial inaccessibility to modern comforts; like a kitchen table, a couch, bed, or chairs. My only two items of furniture were a futon I put on the floor (which later became infested with mold and had to be [...]

Snoring Solutions with Traditional Chinese Medicine

Snoring at first glance seems an innocuous, comical, albeit annoying phenomenon. Nevertheless it is associated with mental, social, and physical complications. Snoring can disrupt marital and family life by interrupting the sleep of other family members. The snoring family member is at best poked fun at and at worst singled out, an isolated oddity subject [...]

Mortons Neuroma treatment with acupuncture and tui na

If you have already tried changing footwear, expensive insoles, anti-inflammatory medications, and other supplementary tactics to treat Morton’s neuroma to no avail, you may be considering surgery or alcohol sclerosing injections to effectively kill the ‘malfunctioning’ nerve. Don’t go permanently severing the feeling from part of your body too hastily. Morton’s neuroma, has a simple, [...]

Esoteric Lifestyle Aches and Pains Article

People in modern society have become insensitive to their own bodies. Their awareness is constantly outside of themselves. We place our minds in the computer, in the television, in our income taxes, in our next paycheck, in our wardrobe, in our car, in our retirement plan, etc. We tend to think about the future or [...]

Knee Pain Acupuncture Tui Na

The knee is the abused, misused, neglected until defected (when it defects from you, donates itself to science, and leaves in its absence a glorified door hinge that reduces overall functionality to the joint of a cheap promotional action figurine such as those designed by Hasbro or Mattel), disregarded but absolutely necessary middle man that’s [...]

The circulation conundrum

Chinese medicine’s longetivity has a lot to do with its flexibility in applying general rules. There is always an exception to a rule, even the most basic. One of its more fundamental tenets; “Without proper circulation there is pain, and where there is no pain circulation is functioning properly,” also has exceptions, and as such [...]

Coughing Acupuncture and Herbal Interventions

Coughing happens when the body feels disagreeable stimuli in the breathing passages. It’s a ‘happening’ rather than a ‘doing’ because it’s involuntary (except when it’s voluntary). Involuntary, huh? This calls for completely unnecessary example. Enjoy! Sitting in a crowded lecture hall amidst a glazy-eyed audience you hear nothing but the robotic droning of a presenter [...]
