HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK AND WHAT DOES IT TREAT?

IMG_4001.JPG

Acupuncture is a system that can influence the promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, treatment of various medical conditions.  

The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems including:

  • Digestive disorders: gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.

  • Respiratory disorders: Sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma and recurrent chest infection

  • Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica and osteoarthritis.

  • Urinary, menstrual and reproductive problems.

Acupuncture is useful resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.

According to Chinese Medicine Qi flows through the body via 14 primary meridians.  

To strengthen the flow of Qi or remove blockages in the meridians, a small strike flexible needle is inserted just under the skin at certain specific points along the channel.  

Acupuncture leads to real physiologic changes in the body. Numerous studies have shown that inserting needles unto the skin stimulates nerves in the muscles.  

The stimulation sends impulse up the spinal cord to a relatively primitive part of the brain known as the limbic system as well as to the mid brain and the pituitary gland.  

signals lead to the release of endorphins and monoamines, chemicals that block pain signals in the spinal cord and brain.

I’m a Chinese Medicine Physician. I have traveled to many parts of the world treating people with an ancient way that has worked for thousands of years.

In my experience, Chinese Medicine treats the body as a whole and aims to achieve balance and harmony. 

I use essential oils, chinese herbs and nutrition therapy to achieve this.

I know what you are going through. I’ve driven my last boyfriend insane with my moods. (Sorry buddy) 

If you are anything like me, you make a scruncy face when someone suggest pills a doctor or a CVs than we are most likely cut from the same cloth. 🙌🏼

 

Here’s how I get past being moody and flip from limitating feel to more powerful ones.

Living Deliberately on Purpose

IMG_6572.JPG

oday I write from my amazing cabin en route to Alaska. After four days at sea we learned that Nicaragua is in civil unrest. Our schedule port day has turned into another day at sea.

After a spin class I felt the desire to offer my thoughts and reflection on this deliberate life I’m learning how to create while listing to Tony Robins 2018 UPW playlist. Thinking back on a conversation I had with a guest earlier this week, I’m often asked how have I done so many things in my life yet be so young?

 

I smile and reply by saying, ‘My passion to transform other human being’s lives transcend through my curiosity to have many life’s experiences’.

 

I continued to share, you know I’m forty years old this year. I sometimes feel like I’m behind. So many younger humans are growing much faster than I. Then I asked,

 

‘what is being forty years old like?’ To my one guest full of wisdom and curiosity at the same time.

He’s reply surprised me and set me off in a gaze into the view from my life size panoramic treatment room window.

Most times my guest have this curiosity about Chinese Medicine. This guest in particular appeared to be a messenger and shared these incredible words of wisdom.

 

Eastern Approach to Love

This week has been an incredible day at sea. We are on an Irish charter but most of my guest are American. Except for this one special lady. 

 

She came into my wonderful office at sea with bright eyes and curiosity about how to treat her leg pain. I see leg pain daily, nothing unusual. Infact its the most common condition I see in my field. Within about three days the issue is resolved.  

Our first treatment together was successful, however something strange happened in the moment of her second treatment with me. She was in tears on the table, sobbing. She wasn’t crying because she was in pain. It was a different kind of cry. Something deeper, more emotional. 

I quicky checked my schedule for my next guest and ran back to attend to my guest needs.

 

IMG_8455.JPG

I asked, what else is going on. She replied,  

“My husband passed seven months ago. Its strange that I am having a breakdown because I’ve been holding everything together.” 

The body has a funny way of dealing with pain. Infact emotional pain pierces through our physical body and affects The musculoskeletal system. It was clear that moving the physical pain triggered emotional pain. This is the best thing that could happen in a treatment and my guest agreed. 

I love how eastern medicine approaches the body mind and spirit and one entity. They are not seprate but one in the same. 

Healing begins with healing the heart. After I had quickly removed the needles I addresses a new protocol, guided my guest through a breathing meditation.  

Acupuncture pierces the heart, the soul and heals the body in such an elloquent way. With love kindness and hope, when western medicine over medicates us with pills to cover up the pain. 

No matter where we come from, how long the journey or how hard we fall, our soul our spirit needs love just as much as the human living in it.

How do you soar when limiting beliefs weight you down?

While I visited Sarasota for the first time, my mind had been shifting through thoughts and emotions.  

I have been in between several thoughts of how to move forward in life. I'm am preparing for an adventure, that will take me back on a journey into far away places. 

Yet, I struggle  letting go of things that don't serve me. Have you ever been there before? 

There is growth in letting go. Letting go of a relationship, stagnate feelings, negative thoughts about money.

IMG_8321.JPG

The gift is in the freedom of knowing that what serves you is your ability to not let your emotions rule you and releasing what's holding you back from what you are meant to be.

Honestly, negative beliefs has shut me down.  

Using the "Decoding Your Beliefs" make a list of your personal negative beliefs. You can carry on adding any negative beliefs to your list as they come to you at a later stage. To see how those limiting beliefs have unnecessarily hampered your success, you could choose to write an example of when any such belief has prevented you from doing or achieving something you wanted. For example a belief like "I am bad with money" or "I am a spendthrift" is likely to have left you with a rather unhealthy bank balance.

Take this statement, turn it around and make it a possitive. 

"I have an abundance of financial wealth". "Money is energy that flows freely" . 'My bank account is healthy, and 'The service I provide is valuable'. 'Others need me and need my services.'

 I believe in you and the being you are created to be in service to this world.

Cures they don't want you to know

Physical ailments are deep rooted in emotions. This isn't something new. But rather old news. Plants are apart of the solution. Not one thing will give you all the relief. However taking the time to learn, trust and believe in yourself is a good start towards a better path.

I've noticed that along my journey, we tend to be less reluctant to new things and trusting that we must make a mental investment as well as taking action on how to make a difference in our lifestyle. 

You already know the answer. I am just here to remind you to trust in yourself and invest in the tools that add value and quality to your life.

Japa Meditation

There are many ways to mediate. One kind of meditation I enjoy is called Japa Meditation. Japa meditation is the repetition of a mantra. This form of meditation comes from the path of yoga called Bhakti, the yoga of devotion.  Mantra comes from the 2 Sanskrit words Mana's which means the mind and Tra, which means to protect or break free from.

Meditation can take place anywhere. In your car, in line, seated, walking or even in a crowded room.

The 108 beads on the Mama (string) represent the 108 energy channels surrounding the heart. The heart has 60 times more electromagnetic energy than the brain. Hold the mala beads in front of your heart during meditation.  

 Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when you listen to God. -Diana Robinson

Use the middle finger and thumb to move the beads in meditation. We start on the bead right after the bead with the tassel. The tassel bead is called the Guru bead (spiritual teacher or master) or the Meru (mountain or Devine). It's like starting at the foot of the mountain and climbing up and back down the other side.

Light and Frequency Influence Disease

What if I told you that obesity, cancer and fertility were more about light than food. Dr. Jack Kruse neurosurgeon uses quantum physics and explains how light and frequency behave in the human body on Gaia.com

Most people believe being well is about food. All foods get broken down into electrons. On the back of every electron in a photon. Photons are light particles. The more we learn about quantum physics we learn that we are true beings of light. Most of this research is disconnected from our current western system. However these principles have been understood since 1923. 

The body posses a huge mitochondria density. The mitochondria is the power plant of the cell. It's the in the nucleus of the human cell. Within the mitochondria there are electrons and protons.  Each electron is connected to protons. Light (protons) is what tells the cells to divide.  

This means you can eat more and exercise less with the Leptin Diet. This diet involves eating a large protein breakfast and sun gazing. The protein sends a message to the micro biome. 

Leptin a master hormone secreted by fat cells. It's secretion is tide to the circadian cycles

This kind of news hasn't hit mainstream medical news because quantum physics is not considered to physiologically affect the human body. Jack Kruse explains this in many ways.

Unlock Ancient Wisdom through meditation

Our physical body is designed to enjoy this leading edge environment and be the ambassador of our emotions. 

We are vibrational beings, you are  specifically created to live in the highest vibration. How do we do that?

through meditation. How? Slowing down  thoughts, paying close attention to our breath and be aware of the subconscious mind. 

I use an app called insight timer. It's equip with guided meditations and it lets me know who's meditating with me.

Awareness of our own thoughts, learning to move away from the distractions like TV programing allow us to become more open to what our creator has to offer.  

First we must take a look at our mindset. Are we locked into one particular belief? Are we able to bend in the wind? Are we open to listening to our own intuition? 

 

 You have inherited this earth. Transform into becoming the ambassador of your universe.

Are You Taking Responsibility?

 Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves.- Fredrich Nietzsche

Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves.- Fredrich Nietzsche

Not taking responsibility is less demanding and means less time spent not knowing and in the unknown.  It's comfortable and you can blame others for your problems.

But wait... why give up your power?   Take back your power to change your life and the world around you.

give yourself the permission to live the life you want.  

Take action. 

Build your selfesteem. 

Set it a goal to become the best version of yourself.
