Acupuncture and Food

It’s always fun to share my recipe ideas with my acupuncture patients. Food has a significant effect on our health. It can increase pain, and it can help pain. Food and acupuncture are connected.

Why?

You know the saying, ‘You are what you eat.’

If you’re in pain, for instance, or have digestive problems, inflammatory foods can cause more pain and swelling. As I share this recipe for Commotion Salad know that it is healthy and made fresh in your kitchen. It also works for those avoiding inflammatory ingredients.

It’s Paleo, Keto, and Whole30. Of course, you can leave out something if you’re particularly sensitive to it.

Commotion Salad And Acupuncture

I call this recipe Commotion Salad because it creates a commotion in your mouth as the flavor mingle. You’ll enjoy sweetness along with tartness and a myriad of tastes. Because inflammation can slow or even stall your healing it’s great to get acupuncture and know what food with help you have less pain, more balanced hormones, and better sleep. Many patients say our recipes also help with digestion problems! Acupuncture and food are related!

This is for two people.
