Chinese Medicine: Longevity Practices and Foods
Article 2 of 3: Live Long & Prosper Series
Chinese Medicine is an ancient, natural medicine. Asian masters teach that we each are born with a certain amount of “Jing” (Life Force Energy), and when we have expended it, that’s all there is. Therefore, it is important to be judicious with your Jing. Why waste your Jing on being mad at the mailman or feeling mistreated by a co-worker or family member? Focus your Jing on creating positive relationships and a beautiful environment for yourself…and others on […]
CORDYCEPS THE CONQUERER
Medicinal Mushrooms are fairly closely related to us, evolutionarily-speaking. We share about 30% of our DNA with mushrooms, and both species use enzymes to break down nutrients to sustain ourselves. Most mushrooms break down plant matter externally, and in the process, create soil and access to nutrients which Nature uses to create new life. We humans take food inside our bodies where our digestive system uses enzymes to break down nutrients which we can absorb.
In an earlier version of his book, Jeff Primack, author […]
Scary Results From Last Week’s Email
We’ve had a ton of feedback on last week’s email, and the truth is pretty scary–dangerous drug/herb interactions, improper use of herbs and supplements, and more are happening all too commonly. We also discovered that not everyone discloses or remembers everything they are taking when they fill out the physician intake forms at our clinic or their other primary doctor’s offices. We want to stress how vital it is that your medical professionals know everything that you are taking, down to your powdered green supplements. Because we are concerned that there are more of […]
(Exercising your Body with Heat and Cold)
Those of us reading this article likely live in a comfortable, temperature-controlled environment. Unfortunately, from an evolutionary aspect having no temperature challenges MAY ages us, make our bodies’ systems lazy, and possibly build up toxins contributing to all manner of issues such as cancer, arthritis, and sagging skin.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for Autoimmune Disorders
Over 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue. Autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease, Addison’s disease, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is real suffering…and there is a LOT of it out there, but few real answers. Most of the standard treatments in Western Medicine have unpleasant or even dangerous side effects. The problem is they are not solving the problem…and they can be causing others.
Due to the complexity of treating autoimmune disorders, […]

We use treatments such as acupuncture, herbs, hypnosis, diet, exercise, and positive thought to help patients obtain and maintain a healthy balance. Please follow this link to read more about […]
