It was March, just before the Quarantine Lockdown, but the isolation was already beginning.  Dr. David’s wife, Deb Martin, could not sit still (metaphorically speaking) and just watch the Lotus Blossom Clinic Community seemingly dissolve into the mist of disconnection and social isolation.  

News from the mainstream media was dire, and there was fear.  Chinese Medicines and other science-backed natural solutions and protections for this sort of virus were not present in the news reports.  

The caring community at Lotus Blossom Clinic, practitioners and teachers, and those […]

By Dr. David Martin

To experience anxiety is to be human. When it becomes chronic, however, it gets in the way of the rest of our humanness. For some people, it is more than an inconvenience and it affects their lives and health negatively on many levels. We have seen people who are terrified to leave their home, others have panic attacks or depression. These are natural instincts gone awry. And I see a LOT of it. In fact, stress/anxiety is the 2nd most common reason people come to see me.

Change is often not easy nor wanted. Yet here we all are…changing…even rising to the occasion, and even more so adapting. Time actually becomes our friend as we adapt to different external expectations and rhythms, if we let it be.

What I have felt and witnessed during this COVID separation time for the people of this planet is a forced change into our innate ability of adaptability. Each of […]

A NEW LOOK AT CANCER PREVENTION 

A CRITICAL FACTOR:  MANAGING STRESS

Article #2 in a 3-part series

Read Article #1:  Promoting & Honoring Nature’s Rhythms

 

 

Managing stress is key to cancer prevention.  As the title of this article suggests, the best way to deal with cancer is not to get cancer in the first place.  As with many things, avoiding the problem is easier than dealing with it.  I think of it like safe driving.  If you are a safe driver, you will be less likely to get into a crash.

Going Mainstream: Integrative Care for Breast (and other) Cancers

By |July 31st, 2018|acupuncture, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Chinese Medicine, Food as Medicine, Pain, Reiki & Other Energy Medicine|

The implications of all the research and clinical experience indicates the efficacy of integrative treatments for many, if not all, cancers.

Mission Impossible part 3: Energy Healing Medicine

By |December 7th, 2017|Anxiety/Stress, Food as Medicine, Reiki & Other Energy Medicine|

Energy healing is in the realm beyond what we can “see” these are forces which affect us on the physical level every bit as much as the medicines we use. Power for change is clearly available in immune-boosting foods such as medicinal mushrooms, detoxing probiotic foods, and pain relieving massage and acupuncture. If you think about it, though, the actual healing takes place inside, at the level beyond what our eyes can see and our hands can touch.

How Effective is Energy Healing?

As with anything, some things […]
