  • October 24th: Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day

    Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day is observed annually on October 24 as part of an effort designed to increase public awareness of the progress, promise, and benefits of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are more common than you’d think.

    An estimated 36% of U.S. adults use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Among the common CAM practices identified by the survey were acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, tai chi and qi gong.

    In an NCCAOM survey, approximately one in ten adults had received acupuncture at least one time and 60% said they would readily consider acupuncture as a potential treatment option. Nearly half (48%) of the individuals surveyed who had received acupuncture reported that they were extremely satisfied or very satisfied with their treatment. In addition, one in five of the total NCCAOM survey respondents reported that they’d used some other form of Oriental medicine besides acupuncture, such as herbs or bodywork (e.g., shiatsu).

    These studies and others like them clearly demonstrate that CAM therapies such as acupuncture and Oriental medicine are common practice in today’s health care system.

  • What to Eat This Fall According to Chinese Medicine

    What to Eat This Fall According to Chinese Medicine:

  • Balancing Yin & Yang with Aromatherapy

    We are part of Nature and channeled into the cycles of Nature. Hence the Five Element theory, which provides us with a set of correspondences by which we can link our physical and psychological characteristics with the seasons, the elements, times of day, specific foods, animals and so on. In ancient rural China this was a far simpler process than in our modern Western highly urbanized society and yet the rules remain unchanged. The health and sense of wellbeing of the individual is in direct relationship with his or her social and environmental matrix. This includes such factors as the quality of our food and water, the air we breathe, weather conditions, relaxation, sleep, work, exercise and relationships of all kinds.

    Tendonitis is the infinitesimal tearing of the tendon fascicles due to overuse of the tendon, resulting in inflammation and irritation and thereby causing pain in the affected area.

    Treatments for tendonitis are rest, icing, discontinuation of heavy activities and application of anti-inflammatory medicines, with surgery as the last alternative. Massage therapy is also becoming extremely common as a cure for tendonitis.

  • Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?

    Adrenal fatigue often occurs when people are stressed out at work or home. During periods of excessive stress, our adrenal glands become overworked and produce excess levels of cortisol in response to the body’s fight or flight response. This prevents the adrenal glands from producing other hormones we need.

  • Holistic Nursing: More Opportunities to Heal

    Florence Nightingale was born nearly two hundred years ago, and her nursing insights are still in use today. In addition to her contribution of “environmental nursing”, in which she drove significant hygienic reform in hospitals, Nightingale was ahead of her time in her connection of the mind and body. One of the founders of what’s known today as a holistic approach to medicine, Nightingale recognized the importance of caring for the whole person. She was one of the first in Western medicine to encourage a patient’s preventative and self-care.

  • Why Not Eat Octopus?

    Why Not Eat Octopus?:

    Silvia Killingsworth on the ethics of eating an animal that has been characterized as “the closest we’ll get to meeting an intelligent alien”:

    “It is impossible for us to fully know the inner lives of octopuses, but the more we continue to study them and other forms of life, the…

    What do you think? Should we stop eating animals we know are somewhat intelligent? Where do we draw the line? Or is vegetarianism, or even veganism, the inevitable ethical conclusion?
