The seasons turn is a always a nice to time give an update
on changes in my practice that you might be interested in. So here goes!
The fall is a great time for people to come in and get an
“immune boost”, a “constitutional balancing session” a “seasonal tune-up” take
your pick of titles, it’s all good! This is the time of year (or even a bit
earlier) that I start to think about working towards keeping you healthy
through the winter months. So I have been reflecting on what has worked for
folks in the past and what new insights I have learned in recent months. Along with these reflections I am making
changes that I would love to share with you.
- Currently I am in the midst of a course with
Sharon Weizenbaum “Treating Knotty and difficult to treat diseases with
Classical Chinese Formulas” I am about halfway through the course and thus far
we have covered 4 Classical formulas and case studies of their use. The most
exciting to me have been cases involving Lyme disease, joint and RA, the
connection between the heart, blood and small intestines and of course
pregnancy and gynecological health issues.
- I have started my own herbal pharmacy which
allows me to custom blend your herbal formulas on sight using the highest
quality herbal granules. This also allows great flexibility in terms of
frequency of prescription, and changes as your body changes, getting you your
herbs fast when needed! For example if you feel a scratchy throat, stuffy nose,
or achy body, you can come in and get herbs right away to nip this in the bud.
On the other hand if things have progressed and you have a lingering cough,
cold, fatigue etc you can also get your herbs quickly and we can monitor them
and change according to your pattern.
- I am working on building a more professional
on line presence which would include a new website describing my practice,
acupuncture, herbal medicine and my own particular style. I am currently
seeking a website designer who could help enhance the design, accessibility,
and informational aspects of the site. If you know of any great leads I would
- Finally if any of you have felt helped by my
work and feel comfortable expressing that in writing, I would be grateful for
permission to use it anonymously of course on my new site! And or face book
It has been such a great pleasure and so rewarding to have
worked with each of you over the years.
Best wishes to you for this Autumn season of change,
harvest, and turning within.
