Did you know that Pressure Points and Acupuncture Points are the same thing? We just stimulate these points in a different manner. Using a small, thin needle to stimulate these points, we are telling the body to mount its healing response. With certain points, we can direct the body to do multiple things at once, regulating blood flow, reducing pain/inflammation, regulating the organ systems of the body, and so much more!

June is PTSD Awareness Month. Help us spread the word that effective PTSD treatments are available. Everyone with PTSD—whether they are Veterans or civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events—needs to know that treatments really do work and can lead to a better quality of life.
Fascinating stuff, and one of the many reasons TCM sees this virus as a Damp Plague ..... it’s stealth comes from hiding in a camouflage of a thick sugar coating to invade the body and effect the internal microbiome.
Recovery and Prevention comes from breaking down the camouflage and strengthening the immune system and the gut.
An area where herbs and acupuncture really shine! 🌞🍃🍂🍵☕️
“According to Mary Poppins, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. In the case of coronavirus, a cloak of sugar helps the virus infect. This sugary-coating disguise, made of molecules called glycans, tricks the human immune system into identifying the microbe as harmless. The resulting recognition failure keeps the body from generating the defensive antibodies needed to destroy the invading coronavirus.”

To keep moving forward, she says, it’s essential that we do all those good-for-us things we say we’re going to do, such as going for walks, or taking breaks to meditate — or just breathe."

How does Lyme Disease Affect Vision?
In the early stages, visual symptoms can include: blur, visual fatigue, double vision, headaches associated with visual activities, losing place when reading, seeing words appear to double or become double when reading, and more.
In later stages of the disease, inflammation of the eye may develop. Ocular symptoms can include sensitivity to light and floaters (spots in front of the eyes)
Research also shows that when the visual process is compromised by tick-borne disease the person will develop compensatory habits in order to attempt to function with their compromised vision.
