Happy New Year!
Y’all. This grapefruit was my appetizer for lunch today. It was so good. I’m heading back to the store for more now. #grapefruitseason
Did you know… There are different styles of Acupuncture?
😂
For real, tho!
😆 Hopefully not!
It's all got to calm down soon right? The next lunar New Year starts Jan 30, 2022. The Water Tiger year. It should be new energy coming in - whew!
Here's a good example of what I buy at the grocery store for the week. I plan on making 2 big recipes and the rest are small meals, (mostly) healthy snacks, and left-overs.

* Recipe #1 Sh*take, butternut squash, and beef stew (I'll share this with family for the holiday)
* Recipe #2 Sausage with white beans (I'm eating more meat this week than usual - mostly because of the season. It's natural to eat heavier in the winter)
* healthy sweets - dark chocolate (Hu bars are amazing - highly recommend), zinc/vitamin C candies, pears, and whole dates

What are you cooking this week?
As you may already know, insurance companies are always pulling some BS in order to not pay for things.

Why? Because they’re businesses. In order to make a profit and keep their shareholders happy, they need to take in more premiums and pay less out to health care providers.

If your insurance covers acupuncture, but when it comes down to actually footing the bill, they deny the claims because of -

1. The coverage is for “in lieu of anesthesia” (seriously, even I wouldn’t do that!)

OR

2. Coverage is only for medical doctors or physicians to perform the acupuncture (instead of paying someone who has been studying the profession of acupuncture for 4+ years)

Call your insurance company and complain to them. They don’t take us as seriously when we complain. But they will listen to their customers. Especially if lots of them start complaining.

Long-haul COVID? Don't worry; it's just viral biofilm. I know, I know, ...GROSS! But there are natural ways to get rid of it. It's all in this article - including links to get the supplements if you need them for yourself or your loved ones. 🥰
When we were filming the Qi Gong set, I mis-heard one of the exercises. 😳 but, hey, if I have an angry, gay friend, I will be the first one there ready to punch whoever made them mad! 😅
Informal survey: favorite disco song? 💃🏼 🕺🏼
We need more transparency and ethics in medicine. Studies done on medications, for example, paid for by pharmaceutical companies, are often (50-75% of the time) withheld from the public.

Mexican fish extinct in wild successfully reintroduced

For now on, I'm only posting Good News. 😅

This fish, called a "tequila splitfin," was brought back from the edge of extinction.

Mexican fish extinct in wild successfully reintroduced There once was a small fish called “tequila splitfin” or “zoogoneticus tequila” that swam in a river in western Mexico, but disappeared toward the end of the 20th century

Battling bad science

If you have 15 spare minutes, I encourage you to watch this enlightening TED talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/ben_goldacre_battling_bad_science#t-837755

Battling bad science Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they're right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry.

Another happy client! :) (New review on Google)

"This place is amazing. I’ve been a client for years and I can’t say enough good things about it. The staff are courteous, friendly and accommodating.

I have had amazing results with acupuncture here. The NAET allergy treatment eliminated my allergy symptoms. I was in a bad car accident this January and the cupping & acupuncture treatments have given me so much relief.

The facials are awesome. Everyone at work kept asking if I had lost weight.

I cannot thank you all enough for the extraordinary care I have received.

I recommend you to everyone and will continue to do so. ~Tina M."

Opinion | The Infection That’s Silently Killing Coronavirus Patients

Feeling a little "off" or wondering how your lungs are doing through all of this? Get an pulse oximeter (available online or at drug stores for not too much money, depending on the quality) to check the oxygenation of your blood. If it gets below 95 -- time for herbal intervention! The best thing we can do for ourselves now is STAY HEALTHY TO STAY OUT OF THE HOSPITALS. We can help with that.

"I hope you can obtain the Avatar Elixir stashed in the golden obelisk in the underground fortress beneath the glass mountain. It will allow you to produce the "triple-helix" energy that will give you the power to cross freely back and forth through the gateway between universes. Then wild beasts will obey your commands. Rivers will become your allies. Every star in the sky will shine directly on you. And if for some reason you're not able to get your hands on that Avatar Elixir, you may be able to achieve similar results by drinking a bottle of beer stashed in the lower left rear section of the beverage cooler at a convenience store within five miles of your home.

Magic might be wherever you think it is."
- Rob Brezsny

About the Natural Health Center

Acupuncture can help you achieve the health and vitality you need to enjoy your life.

For 5,000 years, Oriental Medicine, which includes acupuncture and herbal therapies, have been helping people get out of pain, feel more energy, and clear their minds. Wellness is not found in one single isolated item – like a drug. Healing your body at a cellular level and maintaining that vibrancy is wellness.

I got into Oriental Medicine in the late 1990s when I was suffering from a bunch of health conditions that Western medicine was unable to fix. I had skin problems, fatigue, headaches, and abdominal bloating. And I was only 20 years old! The acupuncturist I saw helped me fix my diet (which I thought was healthy, but it was imbalanced for my constitution and lifestyle) and relax. Within a month I felt completely transformed. Then I knew I had to learn how to do this system of medicine myself.

After I finished my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas, I went to Acupuncture School at the Texas Health and Sciences University and received my Master’s in Oriental Medicine in 2003. I opened the Natural Health Center of Austin that year.
