Fabulously Geeky Friday: Migraine Research

July 18, 2014

With my background as an engineer, I really love reading about all the research being done about acupuncture. There has been so much research done on acupuncture in the last 10 years—it’s mindboggling. I love that it helps prove to people that acupuncture really works. Lots of individual research studies have been done on acupuncture for migraines. And one of the gold standards in helping decide if a treatment modality

My Two Favorite Ways to Relax

July 2, 2014

It’s so common to have trouble unwinding. As we talked about on Monday, this is often because people overwork themselves and overdo it for so long. You may feel guilty. You may need something external to help you relax, from sedatives to cigarettes to food. But maybe, just maybe there’s something else you can do during the day so that you can maintain focus, sit still, fall asleep easily, or

Best Patio in the Twin Cities

June 20, 2014

People might say Minnesota has two seasons: winter and construction, as the old joke goes. But it could also be Winter and Patio Season, in my mind!

Fabulous Friday: Kim Kardashian Gets Facial Acupuncture

June 6, 2014

Well, you know if Kim Kardashian is doing something, that means it’s really something, right? Right? Well, Chinese medicine practitioners didn’t need Kim to validate what we already knew, but her endorsement certainly can’t hurt our cause. Obviously, we’re not privy to the reason Kim Kardashian was having facial acupuncture, but there are a few applications for facial treatments: acne (as we discussed earlier this week), sinus congestion, and TMJ, for

Fabulous Friday: Bread, When You Can’t Have Bread

May 16, 2014

So, I just had a smashing success with a bread that doesn’t have gluten. I know, I know: What’s the point of having bread if you can’t have gluten? Well, once you taste this you might change that perspective right quick. I recently threw a bridal shower for my sister, and we were making chicken salad. We decided we wanted a gluten-free option for the attendees, so my sister-in-law recommended

Fabulous Friday: Burch Steakhouse

April 18, 2014

Today, I have to gush about one of my new favorite haunts in town: I am full-out, head-over-heels, unabashedly obsessed with Burch Steakhouse in Minneapolis. It has the best steak in the Twin Cities.

Fabulous Friday: Turmeric

April 11, 2014

One of my dear, dear friends, Osiris, recently went home to Panama and one of her family members there was growing turmeric. This family member (thankfully!) shared some turmeric root with her, and in turn, she shared it with me, urging me to try it. She loves it and is cooking everything with it right now. I’d never had turmeric before, so I was super-psyched to give it a try.

Fabulous Friday: Yoga

April 4, 2014

Yoga has gotten a reputation for being the “sport” that people need to be able to put their feet behind their head to be successful. But that’s not true, and one of the many reasons it’s been so popular through the ages as both a physical and spiritual practice is that it can be immensely helpful for a slew of ailments and illnesses, from mental health to … you guessed

Fabulous Friday: Cry It Out

February 13, 2014

Here we are at at the end of the first week of the Olympics. Man, do I love a good cry at some of the Olympic stories out there.
