Acupuncture helps regulate biological stress, reducing pain and anxiety, improving sleep quality and natural immunity, by inducing a parasympathetic nervous system response.
I am personally cleaning the office thoroughly every night and wiping down all surfaces between patients as well as placing gaps in the schedule to allow for only one patient at a time to check in or out and no one in the waiting area. The office is also ionized with hydrogen peroxide ions which clears all dust particles out of the air by donating electrons which neutralize static electricity and keeps dust particles from floating in the air and has anti-septic activity.
All family members are asked to please wait in the car while patients are being treated.
Please air out your house. Fresh air is your best antiseptic. Maintain social distances and engage in fun outdoor activities to manage stress and boost immunity.
Looking forward to this event

Effective as a non-pharmacological approach to pain management and compounded by a holistic approach to comorbidity care, tens of thousands of licensed acupuncturists effectively treat patients with acute and chronic pain across the nation while now thousands of hospitals and clinics employ acupuncturists to improve outcomes and reduce costs. In contrast to acupuncture’s safety record, deaths related to opioid misuse have reached epidemic levels, the financial impact of the epidemic is at crisis levels, and incurred expenses rise from general pharmacological-care side effects, medical errors, and failed surgical procedures. In fact, two Alabama citizens die daily from opioid overdose according to the Center for Disease Control. The national epidemic is costing public and private insurers more than $72 billion annually. Additionally 30% of patients with chronic pain conditions also suffer from clinical depression, and nearly 50% of patients who suffer from both anxiety and depression disorders have a co-morbid pain diagnosis, which shows the compounding concerns of opioid use for pain. The impact of the epidemic is far reaching, including but not limited to families, incarcerated persons, children, and disabled.

Emergency room misuse. The percentage of emergency department (ED) visits associated with pharmaceutical misuse or abuse increased 114% between 2004 and 2011. Opioid overuse not only increases ED visits but leads to increased avoidable services and costs that may actually harm beneficiaries. In fact, Medicaid recipients have a higher rate of ED visits and hospitalization for poisoning by opioids and related narcotics than individuals with other forms of insurance or the uninsured.13

#kudzu covers everything. It’s s good thing the leaves are edible and the root is used in traditional Chinese medicine to help alleviate symptoms of hypertension, diarrhea, fever, stiff upper back and neck and even measles. More recently, a 2005 study by Harvard Medical School and New England Research Institutes found that properties of the kudzu plant may cause alcohol to reach the brain more quickly. Drinkers feel the effects sooner and will likely drink less and more slowly. #drinkless

Nutritional yeast makes for a great natural source of B-Complex instead.

Can we be more passionate about health? The human body, its afflictions, and its requirements, can be understood in simple ways. Traditional Chinese medicine is a time tested approach to healthcare emphasizing prevention and informing us about a better way to live. We facilitate the development of a lifestyle that leads to better overall health. Through acupuncture, herbs, nutritional and lifestyle adjustment, and other treatments, the body recovers gracefully. Our bodies have an incredibly powerful regenerative capacity and when conditions are in harmony we enjoy health.
We all intuitively know through our own experience as well as our collective ancestry that what we put into our bodies will affect our health. The Greeks said “let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and today we say “you are what you eat”. Based on the foundations of traditional Chinese medicine we can eat according to principles of wisdom that guide us on our journey of health maintenance and optimization.
