Needle Away the Bugs!

 

By Yi Qiao, LAc, OMD

Flu season is coming, so if you are prone to catching colds often or easily, or if you are seeking to boost your immune system to protect yourself from getting sick, consider some Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as Acupuncture before the cold weather hits.

Green Up Your Immune System

Green Up Your Immune System

 

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

Scientific evidence confirms that which we already know: The more greens we eat, the less likely we are to develop chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease and more quickly fight off acute conditions, such as colds and flu. Yet, most Americans do not eat nearly enough nutrient-packed dark-green vegetables – and thus cannot take advantage of their rich health benefits, including fighting off inflammation, enhancing detoxification, and maintaining an optimal acid-base balance in ...

Sunscreen 101

By Maggie Ney, ND

Sunscreen is a unique product in that it is the one topical body care product that is highly recommended to apply all over the body, multiple times a day, for everyone over 6-months of age.  And yet, so many available sunscreens contain toxic ingredients that are carcinogenic, mimic hormones (“endocrine disrupting chemicals”), affect our nervous system and cause skin allergies.

Magnifying Change Through the Attentiveness of the Body & Mind

By Kevin Kunkel, MA

We may have familiarized ourselves with ways to cleanse the body (food and supplement detoxs, infrared saunas, lymphatic drainage), and ways to cleanse the mind (meditation, journaling exercises).
