Acupuncture and the Heart's Immune System Connection

Tree of Life Acupuncture NYC Clinic

The heart is the most important organ in our body.


The heart organ plays a more important role in the summer than other seasons, in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, it's a seasonal organ.


The heart houses the "spirit" in Asian medicine, one can think of it as peace of mind or mental health. Many people may experience restless sleep due to a restless mind.

Heart and Your Immune System

Poor sleep due to mental stress may lead to the weakening of the immune system so much needed during covid and delta variant times. 

The heart communicates with the immune system and the rest of the body through cytokines, hormones, and neurotransmitters.

If someone experiences worsening of conditions in the summer it could be related to the circulatory and cardiac systems of the body.

Foods red in color are good for the heart.
Tomatoes, wild salmon, goji berries, beets, red beans, watermelon, and goji berries.

Some of the heart condition manifestations
 Insomnia, heart palpitations, tachycardia, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure.

Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and Bioresonance therapy can balance many conditions to health including the cardiac system and its related organs with the immune system.



Acupuncture heart health NYC
Laughter is the emotion associated with the heart.

I sometimes observe people in my acupuncture clinic in NYC laughing kind of inappropriately during acupuncture sessions.  


I think of laughter as the body's way sometimes of clearing trapped energy and/or blockages. I always think of the heart's emotion of laughter.
Laughter is the best medicine, they say and your laughter could reveal your spirits also.
 












Interesting heart facts
* A woman's heart is smaller than a man's and beats faster to compensate for a smaller size.
* The average heart is the size of an adult fist.
* Your heart beats about 115,000 times each day.
* Your heart pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood.
* Athletes' heart beats much slower than an average person's due to more heart muscle.
* An average heart weighs about 300-350 grams less than one pound)
I hope that you all stay well,

Spring Time and your Health at Tree of Life Acupuncture in NYC

 Tree of Life Acupuncture NYC Clinic

32 Union Square E #804, New York, NY 10003
  (212) 533-1192
    

Spring in NYC is beautiful. In Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, Springtime is associated with the liver and gallbladder organs.

At Tree of Life Acupuncture clinic, we offer a number of holistic, natural therapies to help your liver, health and immune system, see links below.
The human liver can regenerate itself from as little as 25% of tissue. The liver is the Yin organ and the gallbladder is its paired Yang organ. 

Anger is the emotion associated with 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.

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



Be well,

Immune System - Covid and Acupuncture in the Winter

32 Union Sq E,  Ste 804, New York, NY 10003

Wintertime falls on the kidneys and the bladder in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

This winter season brings more challenges to our health, more than any other. In addition to the flu and cold season, we have COVID-19 to worry about. 

NYC acupuncture in the winter

What it all comes down to is the common sense of wearing a mask indoors, warm clothes and strengthening your immune system. 

I have seen post-Covid damages done to a few fully recovered patients (being tested negative of the virus consistently). Many develop post-infection respiratory and heart symptoms. Some develop neurological conditions and some simply experience chronic fatigue.

Some of our post-COVID fully recovered patients who could not breathe well are jogging now after treatments in our clinic.

The good news is that the immune system can be strengthened through lifestyle, dietary changes, exercises, and many therapies offered at  Tree of Life Acupuncture NYC clinic.

FOODS such as garlic/ garlic water, onions, and ginger can provide antibacterial and antimicrobial actions and benefit the immune system, the lungs and keep you warm in the winter cold.

At Tree of Life Acupuncture clinic, we treat chronic and acute pain, neurological conditions, and immune system disorders.​
We offer prevention and health maintenance options and work with
​ Lyme, cancer patients, and many chronic autoimmune system disorders.









Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can reduce stress and strengthen your immune system as well as correct sleep, digestive functions, depression and anxiety, and a host of other conditions

Kidneys have a special relationship with the Heart/Bladder and the Lungs. You can think of Kidneys as your batteries (Positive + and Negative -). 

Kidneys also rule lower back, so if you have some symptoms that are worse in the Winter (back pain, breathing problems, blood pressure issues (high and low). Low energy levels may also be attributed to the kidneys. As well as infertility and low libido in men or women. If legs are swollen, you can be sure that Kidney energy is involved.

Foods to Eat in the Winter

  • Any food black in color or in kidney-shaped is good in the winter. Black beans, kidney beans (most beans). 
  • Seeds: flax seeds, black sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, etc. 
  • Fruits: Blackberries and blueberries.
  • Seafood: fish, shrimp and seaweed.
  • Nuts: walnuts, chestnuts, etc.
Hot soups, especially made of root vegetables are great to keep you well-nourished and warm. Soups are nutritious and they prepare and warm up your digestive system for food consumption.


Animal Products: Pork, duck, lamb, eggs, cheese, etc. A small amount of animal protein can be used therapeutically here. Too much meat, particularly without the balance of vegetables, will stagnate the Liver and create heat. 

Bone Marrow Broths and Soups: This will nourish Marrow governed by Kidneys. Especially beneficial for people wanting to prevent or heal osteoporosis.

The emotional element of kidneys is "Fear", so if someone is exposed to a lot of fear, it may result in kidney imbalance (anxiety, restlessness insomnia, etc). 

Wishing everyone to stay well and healthy,

The fall season always tests our immune system, especially in NYC as there is always more stress in Manhattan.

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.

root vegetables, garlic, onions.

If you are poorly dressed, the wind can penetrate through the pores and affect your lungs with cold, fever, runny nose, and later cough. 

Click ***Book Appointments On-Line 24/7*** 

Call us at (212) 533-1192 if you have any questions. Fall is the best time to get your immune system in order for the Winter!

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
