Toxic chemical exposures have been linked to various chronic health conditions, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, infertility, mood disorders, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, memory impairment, and cancer. While avoidance is always the best, escaping exposure is nearly impossible. This constant exposure is resulting in an ever-increasing body burden or toxic load of chemicals.  Some toxins, such as smoking and plastics, are rather obvious, but others are lurking in our food, water, and skin care products.   The Centers for Disease Control began monitoring human exposure to chemicals in 1976.

Anxiety, stress, worry have locked into our psyche and caused us to go into unconscious bias and habitual patterns that create more anxiety and unhealthy habits.  These unhealthy habits can be in the form of procrastination, stress eating, drug/alcohol abuse, internet and social media addiction to name a few. So, how do we detox our minds and detox our habits?  The key is to become aware when they are happening.  Once you can become aware and notice it becomes easier to make the appropriate change or response. We can change our relationships to our anxiety and engage in behavioral patterns that can...

Detox the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Detox the Mind, Body & Spirit In theories of acupuncture, humans are looked at as part of the natural world that surrounds them. Seasons change and during this transition from one season to another, it is important to stay balanced with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Each season is linked with an organ system in the body. Acupuncture improves the function of the liver meridian and can restore balance to the organs. According to TCM, the liver is responsible for smooth flowing Qi (chi) or energy through the body.  The liver and gall bladder meridians govern the muscles, tendons, and nerves in the body.  The liver also controls the eyes. Here are some signs that your liver/gall bladder meridian may be out of balance this time of year. You...
