For a variety of reasons - financial constraints, schedule conflicts, or a worldwide pandemic that has shut everything down - some patients aren’t able to come in the once or twice weekly recommended dosage of acupuncture treatments.

Have Faith Not Fear During These Unsettled Times

Mar 26, 2020
In the past few months we have faced something few of us would have ever imagined possible. It's straight out of a hollywood film like Contagion or Outbreak. When talking to patients I can hear the fear in their voices. I can see the feeling of unease when waving to my neighbors. We have a feeling of fear around our health, our finances, a general sense of lack of control, even a fear of running out of toilet paper!

March 23 Update

Mar 23, 2020

 

Many patients have asked about stocking up on supplements to last for the next 1 to 2 months since it is likely we will need to continue to suspend all in-clinic consults, IVs, acupuncture, laser and Maya Massage sessions for all of April as a minimum.

Functional Tests for Hormones

Mar 10, 2020

Hormone imbalances are common. I see this frequently in patients. Many times adjusting diet, addressing nutritional deficiencies, or acupuncture can do wonders for rebalancing the system. However, sometimes, we need to test hormones to figure out the root cause of what is going on.

weight loss, improved fertility, better digestion and more energy - Change Your Life in 4 weeks

Mar 05, 2020
I wanted to pass along a story from one of my more recent patients, let's call her Alison. Alison first came into my office in the 3rd week of January looking for help with her health and improving her chances of having a child.  She was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Although all her tests with her doctor have come back normal she definitely was not feeling healthy.

Immunity: 'Tis the Season

Mar 04, 2020

Immunity seems to be a common theme among my patients these days. Contagious infections are no laughing matter; viruses are tricky, super intelligent, adaptable and opportunistic creatures, but I am fascinated by the variation in how infections present in different people.

BOOSTING YOUR IVF SUCCESS WITH LASER AND ACUPUNCTURE

Feb 18, 2020

I have many patients coming to me about to start an IVF cycle. And whether it’s their first or their fourth their main concern is doing everything they possibly can to make this their best (and last) cycle. When it comes to boosting IVF success I like to use all of our available tools, especially when we don’t have too much time to work with (at least 2-3 months before an IVF cycle is ideal).

Feb 09, 2020

I heard many different birth stories from the midwives while teaching the training in Chiapas. One story that deeply affected me was told by two of the traditional midwives and was about an indigenous 16 year old girl from a community outside of San Cristóbal de las Casas. I will call her Maria.
