July 25, 2014

A lot of my clients love me because even though I do “food therapy,” I sometimes prescribe bacon. Or butter. That’s right. I am a fan of fat. I’m not just going to put you on a restricted diet—that’s not good for anyone! Life is meant to be enjoyed. And it will be if you feel better. And if you get to enjoy your food, too. I’ve talked about it

Patient Profile: Managing Anxiety

July 21, 2014

This week, we’re going to profile a super patient of mine, Sadie, who was struggling with anxiety and wanting to wean off of her anxiety medications–which can cause some nasty side effects of their own.

So, how many of you made a resolution—or maybe based on our holiday posts, you created a year in review and set some intentions instead. This is a common time of year to think about change.

Fresh Air

November 20, 2013

Baby, it’s cold outside! You’ve probably got your heat pumping in your house already. No more sweet breeze coming through the screens…more like sharing stale, forced air. Yuck.

November 13, 2013

On Monday, I talked about my own personal struggle with anxiety and how I found relief through Chinese medicine. As it turns out, acupuncture and other facets of Chinese medicine are super awesome at resolving stress and anxiety.

Stress Less with Chinese Medicine

November 11, 2013

I used to have debilitating anxiety. When I was working a corporate job, I got to the point where I had trouble even encountering people in the hallways. Should I look at them? Should I look at my notebook? Should I pretend I didn’t see them? Should I turn around and walk the other way? In meetings with my boss, I would be shaking so hard that it would make
