The Single Most Important Vitamin To Fight Anxiety

The Single Most Important Vitamin To Fight Anxiety

As an anxiety sufferer myself, I always thought there was something wrong with me. The people around me made anxiety seem like a disease instead of a natural response to certain situations. All I needed was this single vitamin to fight anxiety.

EVERYONE has Anxiety

Sometimes it’s more than average; that’s when we look at ways to treat it naturally. Don’t buy into the belief that something is wrong with you.

Anxiousness is often treated as a mental health issue even when it’s a biological concern. If you’re deficient in several amino acids and vitamins you’re likely to be more anxious, stressed-out, and experience insomnia. A prescription drug may cause more deficiencies while a single vitamin to fight anxiety changes your internal balance.

Feeling Anxious?

There’s a single vitamin that fights anxiety though it works synergistic with others. It’s not just about a vitamins though. EAM, or Electro-acupuncture medicine, has a strong track record of working with the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to emotionally balance; especially when we experience stress, insomnia and anxiety..

Your Armor Against Runaway Emotions

There are tools you can use at home.

BUT — and I mean, BUT, the key for myself was finding out what my nutritional deficiencies were and taking care of those through Functional Medicine.

A Patient shared. . .

One patient I treated put it this way, “My husband told me he was afraid of me because I flew off the handle at he and the kids constantly and whatever you’re giving me – not to stop. He has his wife back!”

The patient knew she was full of stress and unease yet had no idea she was affecting everyone around her.

Simply put – she does the seven things on my list, and we’ve added the right supplements. She wasn’t crazy; She wasn’t a bi@ch. She wasn’t mentally ill. When I say it’s a single vitamin to fight anxiety it’s a family that work harmoniously together.

What Are The Foundations Of Functional Medicine Again?

What Are The Foundations Of Functional Medicine Again?

As we start this series on Functional Medicine [FM], I want to talk a little bit about what it is and isn’t.

The typical comment I get when people call to make an appointment is, “I don’t want to take drugs, so I heard FM can help my numb feet that I have from my diabetes”. Or they’ll inquire, “I hear it can help with pain, and I have arthritis”.Concepts of Functional Medicine Supplements

Functional Medicine Is A Natural Way To Health

Of course, we all suffer anxiety; it’s part of our normal flight or fright response to changes or challenges in our lives. It’s when it causes us to change our behavior that anxiety becomes something we want to use acupuncture and functional medicine.

What is Functional Medicine ? In a nutshell, it is making changes in your life for sure. But the first step is looking at the whole you with me. Are you tired because you’re not getting enough sleep due to working two jobs, or is it because you aren’t absorbing the nutrition from the food you eat?

One of the biggest changes is weight loss.

Do I Need Lab Work?

The first step is to discover if you lack the right balance of micro-nutrients inside the cells of your body.

Sometimes we test. Other times the symptoms paint a clear picture for me to help you start feeling better right away.

What Does Functional Medicine Treat Again?

Concepts of Functional Medicine weight lossFunctional Medicine treats everything though I specialize is certain problems in my practice. Do you wake every night at 1 am and can’t get back to sleep? Is your hair thinning? Do you feel fatigued by lunchtime, yet your thyroid appears normal. Is it near impossible to lose weight even though you don’t eat much.

Maybe the doctor says your pain is arthritis, but you’re only 45. Yes, that’s young, but I seen that diagnosis from an MD. Guess what it was, the Gall-bladder! So you never know what your body is trying to tell you until you investigate.

Acupuncture and Functional Medicine Rocks Arthritis

I have a patient who does have arthritis—that constant dull ache in their hip joints. And then you stiffen up just sitting for a time. I hear you! It’s worse at night or when you first get up, right? That patient is doing 80% better with functional medicine.

It’s a natural way for sure. That means you have to be committed to change. It means you’ll be in control of your body again. You’ll feel and act younger because you will be more in balance.

How To Naturally Treat Food Poisoning

How To Naturally Treat Food Poisoning

Have you ever had an itch that burns? An itch that makes you feel like your skin is on fire? The left sole of my foot itched so deep I used a blunted tool to dig in, still no relief. It moved to my left palm, then my right pinky of all places. I had food poisoning. I had an allergic reaction.

The Ultimate Allergic Reaction

The itch, as it’s now called, moved recklessly all over my body. No place safe from the itch. A true allergic reaction. Skin irritation is so unpleasant, and the constant battle brings on fatigue and physical weakness.

It started at one of our favorite [not any longer] Mexican restaurants. By the time we’d finished eating, I knew something was wrong. My stomach was achy, so I quickly took some enzymes that I carry. Food poisoning wasn’t on my mind.

The Many Faces Of Food Poisoning

My husband felt fine until the middle of the night. He woke with all the typical food poisoning symptoms: Stomach ache, diarrhea, fever, and chills. Myself on the hand had a different response.

If you ever have a similar allergic reaction to food poisoning, here are some tips, including not eating that food again. Here’s what you can do the next time food attacks you.

The Best Natural Treatment 

Keep dietary Charcoal on hand. Take 450-580 mg on an empty stomach 2-4 times a day until all your symptoms are gone. The charcoal will bind to the toxins and move them out of your digestion. It must be taken on an empty stomach. It’s critical to wait 2 hours after taking it before eating.

Add-in with your food, Quercetin, Vitamin C, and Bromalin.

Staying Away From Western Medicine

I know many times people don’t know what they can do that is safe and natural. We hurry to get Benadryl or a steroid from the doctor. Both of these do more harm than good.  Suppressing your symptoms only makes your allergic reaction last longer because the toxins are still inside you.

If you’re in trouble with a rash or itchy skin, due to any reason, try these natural supplements. When your skin itches you’re having an allergic reaction. You can also try Allergy elimination treatments. They’re a specific acupuncture treatment to stop some allergies.  We’re happy to talk to you by phone and help you with your online order. Food poisoning is no fun.

Does Diet Influence Menopause Timing?

Does Diet Influence Menopause Timing?

Food influences everything, not just our weight. Does diet influence menopause timing? It does, and you can be in control it. Not only when but the symptoms you struggle with or rather don’t experience.

Acupuncture For Menopause

As an acupuncturist, many people think all I do is put tiny sterile needles into people. Nothing is further from the truth. Chinese medical practitioners are often trained in whole body health. I bring into my Littleton practice functional approaches to health as well.

Food, for instance, is part of medicine like acupuncture. In my Littleton office, I often deal with the whole person, especially when it comes to hormones. Acupuncture is excellent at quick relief for hot flashes, weight gain, or night sweats. The cool thing though is when this stop altogether because of different food choices.

Does diet influence menopause timing?  There’s no science I found saying it ‘affects’ the timing though this study at Harvard suggests it does.  However, poor health can bring on the cessation of your mensural cycle in before 45 let’s say.

Acupuncture can help you jump start your cycle and keep it going by stimulating your body chemistry to balance stress, food, and hormones. Besides changing the diet can have health benefits that improve not only hormones but energy, happiness, while decreasing stress.

Acupuncture Is More Than The Needle

As an acupuncturist who is also training in ‘food’ and ‘diet’ from a functional, my goal is to help you sail through menopause at the right time.

Does diet influence menopause timing?  The lack of a well-balanced diet is well studied, and too much fast food, sugar, dairy, or avoidance of protein from animals often are related to wellness.

Diet and Menopause Connect

Let’s state the obvious. Menopause isn’t something to be avoided. The timing of when it occurs should be around 49 to 52. When it occurs earlier, we have to ask does diet influence menopause timing in this person?  It means doing a few tests to confirm the patient’s health. It then becomes a choice of how to deal with it through acupuncture, diet, and supplements.

Now the question.
