A HOUSE DIVIDED…Drug Effects vs Acupuncture!

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” –Abraham Lincoln

Pain killer…Check.

Anti-inflammatory…Check.

Anti-anxiety…Check.

Antidepressant…Check.

And that’s just breakfast!

For many, starting the day by downing a handful of pills has become the norm, a natural accompaniment to their eggs and toast.

You take pills because you are taught to, and that’s what most people are accustomed to.  Because somehow the drugs are supposed to wipe the slate clean and zero out your not so healthy lifestyle choices.  Inherently you know that the drugs are not the best thing for you, but you figure that you can settle for good enough if the pills can help you just get by.

There is a reason that every drug or pill that you are prescribed comes with a list of side effects and warnings.  Continually putting foreign/toxic substances into your body over the long run often creates more illness than health.

The reality is that the body is designed to heal from the inside out and express life through an inborn intelligent energy, and it is only when this energy is impeded that the body begins to break down.

ESSENTIAL HEALTHY HABITS

ESSENTIAL HEALTHY HABITS

meridians

To live a healthy life at the most basic level, we all know that there are certain habits that must be maintained on a consistent basis.

Want healthy teeth?  Brush a few times daily, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist for regular check-ups.

Healthy bodily hygiene requires that you shower or bathe daily.

Living at a healthy bodyweight results from consistently eating the right types of foods, and regularly engaging in some form of exercise.

Most importantly, living your life at your absolute healthiest, with 100% energy flow and maximum expression of life requires clearing the body of meridian imbalances and then maintaining those changes through consistent wellness treatments.

These are truths that cannot be denied.  When you quit performing any of these proactive habits, its corresponding aspect of health begins to decline.

So let’s say you did give up these habits.  What would happen to your state of health as it relates to that activity?

Quit brushing and flossing and you risk losing your teeth.  As undesirable as this would be, you can still live without a mouthful of teeth.  Sure it’s more difficult, but you would survive.  […]

Acupuncture for Neck Pain: Does It Work?

Acupuncture for Neck Pain: Does It Work?

neck

Chronic neck pain is one of the most common pain issues faced by students and office workers. Oftentimes, spending hours at a desk each day, combined with poor postural habits, is the root cause of the pain. However, for some, sports injuries, whiplash, and the wrong bed mattress or pillow can set off the pain. Regardless of what caused the neck pain to begin, many people find relief with acupuncture when seemingly nothing else helped. Scientific researchers and clinicians have been conducting clinical trials on the use of acupuncture for neck pain since the 1980’s, and most of these studies have confirmed that acupuncture is safe and effective.

One recent pilot study (published October 30, 2013 in the British Medical Journal) conducted at the Kyunghee University Medical Center in Seoul, Korea found that acupuncture three times per week was as effective as 80 mg of NSAIDs taken daily for chronic neck pain.

A meta-analysis of studies including 17,922 patients, published in Complementary & Alternative Medicine, found acupuncture to be effective for the treatment of back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, and chronic headaches. Patients receiving acupuncture had remarkably better results than patients receiving “sham” acupuncture. Those patients who had the worst baseline mental status and worst baseline pain scores also experienced the most benefit from acupuncture. […]
