Cancer: Prevention and Support: Part I

Cancer affects thousands of people every year. Though modern medicine has yet to determine the causes of cancer and why certain people develop cancer while others don't, Chinese medicine can shed some insight into this.

Here are the facts:

1) Everyone has cancer cells in their body at all times.
2) Evidence shows that majority of the people that develop cancer due so because their body is weak and as a result, the cancer cells take over.

Knowing these things alone should guide us into a healthier lifestyle. People who get enough rest, eat whole food diets, have a loving and healthy relationship and have positive and creative thoughts are less likely to develop cancer.

Contributing factors to cancer include:
1) Immune deficiencies. This is due to poor diet, stress and overwork.
2) Toxicity and radiation: Related to food, pesticides, chemicals in food, air & water, smoking, cell phones, EMF, asbestos, xrays, etc.
3) and chronic inflammation.

How can we prevent cancer?

1) Eat a whole food diet.
2) Exercise regularly.
3) Minimize daily chemical exposure
4) Eliminate unnecessary medications.
5) Stop smoking.

Acupuncture: What you need to know.

We get to know and can heal the whole person.

1. Everyone is different
2. Every person needs different acupuncture points, and even in the same
person, the healing points may change as your health changes
3. Every person and condition responds somewhat differently to acupuncture
it can take a few visits for a good acupuncturist to narrow down your
most effective acupuncture protocol
4. Our medicine is personalized to balance you
5. We are general practitioners- we can treat your body, mind, and
emotions. Many people know we can relieve your aches and pains, but we
can also help you get over colds and flus faster, help you with
digestive and bowel problems, and more
6. We can also treat, or be complimentary in serious diseases like AIDS,
Cancer, and Hepatitis. In fact, the hospitals in China that did the best
against SARS combined both western and Chinese medicine.

Acupuncture works and is safe!

1. Acupuncture research proves that acupuncture treats more than pain
2. Acupuncture research explains in detail how acupuncture works via the
nervous system, immune complement system, and blood coagulation system.
3. Acupuncture virtually never causes any serious adverse effects when
performed by trained and licensed practitioners

Acupuncture is just one part of Chinese medicine

1. Acupuncture is traditionally based in an entire system of healthcare
that includes diagnosis, prevention, and other therapies like herbal
formulas, body movement exercises, and food cures.
2. There are many (at least nine) types of acupuncture, each with its own
experts, traditions, and treatment style.

Thank you to Resolve

I want to take the opportunity to thank the ladies of Resolve for allowing me to come and tell them a little bit about Acupuncture and Infertility.

I was able to learn from these strong and wonderful women the immense pressure they are under right now. Even though I can't relate personally to what they're going to, I left the meeting with a deep and profound respect for them as individuals. Please continue to hold your heads up high, have faith and love. If there is anything I can do or if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
- Thomas Edison

Did you know?

- The National Institute of Health (NIH) reported, in 2002 approximately 8.5 million U.S. citizens used Acupuncture.

- With little or no side effects, acupuncture is one of the fastest growing health care practices around.

- The U.S. military uses Acupuncture on soldiers in the battlefield to relive pain, stress, anxiety and fatigue.

- Research shows that Acupuncture is effective in treating pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, infertility, stress, anxiety, allergies and much more!

So ask yourself, am I going to wait for something horrible to happen before I begin to care about my health? When that happens, will I have a second chance at life? Or am I going to make the necessary changes now and improve my quality of life?

Community-Style Acupuncture

Nowadays people's lives are more hectic than ever. Stress and anxiety are becoming increasingly common. Whether it is due to work, family, finances, relationships or unemployment, everyone is feeling the pressure.

However, through these tough times, health should be an even greater priority. Without our health, there is nothing else. My grandmother told me the other day, "I am old but I want to do everything, but then I realized if I do everything and get hurt or sick...who will come see me everyday and make me something to eat?"


As a health care practitioner, I want to create a haven that is inviting, calming and relaxing to all people, regardless of their situation or experiences.

That is why beginning Wednesday, April 21, 2010, (and every Wednesday afterward) Comfort Acupuncture will begin hosting "Community Acupuncture Happy Hours" from 4:30-6:30 pm. Snacks, non-alcoholic drinks and auricular acupuncture will be provided.

All that is asked of you is that you come in with a calm and open-mind and respect the people that are there. This is the time for you.

Cost is $20 per person. Please check for more information.
