Covid19 outbreaks will continue in many states and big dance cities like New YorkCity.


Fall is associated with the Lungs in Chinese Medicine and lungs control the skin and skin pores. Our skin is the first line of defense against many pathogens, parasites, bacteria, and even viruses.

Food for Fall
Due to the air temperature is getting cooler, we all should eat warmer foods like a bit of chicken, meat, or fish.

White-colored and spicy food is good for the lungs and large intestine.

Cooking with onions or garlic may benefit the lungs and so is eating white fish, or even white wine in moderation.

Emotions

Sadness or grief are the emotions associated with the lungs and the large intestine. Acupuncture often releases blocked emotions freeing up the Qi circulation and removing energetic blockages.
Stay warm!
Be well,
Mark & Ginny

The Heart organ in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine falls on the season of early Summer in NYC.

Heart functions in Chinese Medicine not only includes pumping and circulating blood but also houses the spirits and has many internal organ connections.


During covid19 times, anxiety, depression, stress may affect heart functions.

The heart organ gets more energy and is affected during summertime and should be paid attention too. Some people do not do well in the Summer due to heart imbalances and may develop higher blood pressure, insomnia/anxiety, or dizziness.

The heart is connected to its hollow paired yang organ small intestine.
Foods that are red in color are most beneficial for the heart. (watermelon, tomatoes etc.)

The heart houses the mind which means the heart is responsible for the sound functioning of the mind.
Further, the heart has energetic connections to the kidneys and the gall bladder.

Some heart imbalances can lead to insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure, and an unbalanced mind.

Acupuncture and Spring Time in NYC

Tree of Life Acupuncture New York City Center
32 Union Square E #804, New York, NY 10003
  (212) 533-1192
    

Spring is here in NYC! In Acupuncture and Chinese medicine,  it is liver and gallbladder organs.

In the covid19 environment, stress and frustrations affect liver energy. 


The human liver is one of the few organs that can regenerate itself from as little as 25% of tissue. The liver is the Yin organ and the gallbladder is its paired Yang organ. Acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners will be using the liver and gallbladder energy to balance their patients' bodies. 

Anger is the emotion for the liver and an unbalanced liver can be a source of high blood pressure, insomnia, heart problems, reproductive problems, PMS and fertility in women, headaches/ migraines, body toxicity, allergies depression, and anxiety.  The liver element is wood and the heart is fire. Anger/ wood causes fire/ heart to overwork and creates organ stressors. 

The liver and gallbladder open into the eyes and often affect the eyesight. They also affect the nails. Brittle nails could be a sign of poor liver function or deficiency of the blood. Pink nails and tongue indicate healthy liver and smooth flow of energy in the body.

The good news is that Chinese herbs  and Bioresonancetherapy with Homeopathy could help the liver regenerate itself, coupled with proper diet and exercises such as yoga, tai chi, qi gong can help balance and restore the organs to harmony.

Spring in NYC, is the best season of the year and New Yorkers are usually happy in the Spring weather. 

However, I noticed that some people could be easily irritable or angrier in 

Spring, perhaps it is that anger element is associated with the liver. Also, in big industrial cities like New York, a busy and fast paced life can cause additional strain on people's irritability and anger. 


The wood element of the liver in acupuncture is prominent in the spring as everything blooms and causes extra load on the liver to process airborne allergens. Watery red itchy eyes are also signs of the liver imbalance as the liver opens into the eyes. 

THINGS BAD for the LIVER.
Alcohol, anger, stress, greasy, fried foods, drugs, toxins (food, environmental).

THINGS GOOD for the LIVER.
Sour tasting or green foods (because the sour taste and color green are associated with the liver) such as green apples, lemon or lime, avocados, and green peppers all work.

Stagnant energy makes us depressed so the Spring gives the liver a "kick" to go and "move it, move it". We feel rejuvenated and young when the energy is properly circulating in the body nourishing the organs and the mind.

The liver spreads the energy (Qi) in the body and that is why we are all so alive and well when the Springtime comes, we must be moving our energy around through sports or any other physical activities and keep our emotions positive. 

Be well,

Covid19 (Coronavirus) Crisis and Opportunities

Tree of Life Acupuncture 
32 Union Sq E, Ste 804, New York, NY 10003
(212) 533-1192
     

There is a famous Chinese proverb:
Crisis and opportunities go hand in hand.

Covid19 - coronavirus is the crisis, but what are the opportunities?

covid19 opportunities coronavirus

The biggest opportunity that the covid19 pandemic gave all of us is the gift of time!

This health pandemic gave us the time to think of life and our mortality. 

The best way to deal with it is to do things that make you feel alive and happy!

For support  Join our Health & Wellness FB Group

MINDSET
Your mindset is everything!  I am in the process of writing a book on the mind, timing, and cycles based on my acupuncture clinical experience and meditations. What I noticed is most people do not have the correct starting point to address their goals or issues.

Often people with chronic health issues or problems are stuck either in the past or future or in a negative mindset. Successful and productive people evaluate current (present situation and focus on a solution to the problem rather than the problem itself.

So stay focused and plan actionable solutions or steps to resolving or improving your condition, whatever it may be.

DEATH 
We all know we are going to die one day, but we want it to be on our own terms.  When something threatens our health or life, like coronavirus pandemic we get scared and defensive.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR ENVIRONMENT & HEALTH

* Play relaxing music and watch less Covid19 news.

SPORTS 
Physical activity can generate endorphins and dopamines happiness hormones.
Exercises can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression as well and raise your oxygen intake.

LEARN something new.  Take online classes, yoga, seminars, youtube, TED Talk, cooking. I like "Masters Class" seminars.

*********************************************************************************
There is nothing like learning something new and something you like and always wanted to do. Take this opportunity to invest in yourself, something that will help you grow. 
*********************************************************************************

Activities
Jogging in the park (even 30 min walk with the mask on), exercising at home, doing yoga, or even filling empty bottles with water and lifting them as dump bells will work.

Spring cleaning 
Cleaning your apartment or closets can bring a sense of comfort, relaxation and coziness.

Distance Socialize
Use technology to virtually keep in touch and compensate for social distancing using: 
Face Time on your phone or WhatsApp or Google Hangouts.

Get in touch with friends and family. Hearing and seeing someone close to you can create a sense of connection and comfort.   

Watch Movies
Netflix, AppleTV, Amazon Prime, etc. Comedies are great for mood elevation.

Help your neighbor or someone with groceries perhaps.

Eat well and sleep well. Learn to adapt and improvise.

Stay well and healthy,
Mark

Coronavirus and Your Immune System

Tree of Life Acupuncture 
32 Union Sq E, Ste 804, New York, NY 10003
(212) 533-1192

     

The coronavirus COVID-19 is up to 20 times more deadly than the flu, with a fatality rate of about 2.3% according to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (in the U.S., seasonal flu's fatality rate is about 0.1%), the Times reported


Coronavirus has flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath which may appear 2-14 days after exposure. 

I am sure many of us gave it a thought on how to prepare for COVID-19.

Besides avoiding being exposed to the virus and everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases such as washing your hands or using a facemask, as advised by the CDC here, there are many holistic and natural options available for strengthening your immune system and some based on the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.

DISCLAIMER: Information contained in my posts is based on my own, clinical hospital, and private practice experience.

As a licensed acupuncturist in NYC with 26 years working in small rooms with patients with all sorts of symptoms, I had contracted flu from my patients numerous times. In the past, I have used some of the below mentioned homeopathic (and boiled Chinese herbs) to reduce the chance of or avoid the full-blown flu.


coronavirus holistic treatmentDuring the Spanish flu pandemic, homeopathic physicians had a mortality rate of 1% while traditional physicians have a mortality rate of 30%.


Traditional medicine now has stronger antibiotics and for those who are interested in natural and alternative treatments, you can try holistic and alternative treatments.
Homeopathic medicines that did well in the Spanish flu pandemic.

Gelsemium on Amazon Get the 9C or 12C if you can. Gelsemium was a primary homeopathic medicine used during Spanish flu.  Bryonia was the next one.

Complete Flue Care has many medicines to help you recover from the flu symptoms. 

Gan Mao Ling on Amazon Chinese Herbal Flu Formula

Garlic and ginger tea has antibacterial actions. 
Boil ginger as a tea. Garlic, I like soaking in a glass of filtered water for a few hours or best overnight. Mix together garlic water and ginger tea and drink half an hour before meals 2-3 times a day.


Stay well and healthy,
Mark
