It's the Lunar Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog according to Chinese Astrology, Chinese Medicine and Chinese Five element Acupuncture.

Year of the Dog starts February 16, 2018 and could make you a "LUCKY DOG:)". 

What does it mean for you and how it will affect your Life?

Unleash and Let your inner Dog out:)

The dog is the 11th element in Chinese Astrology representing loyalty, honesty, and justice.

I would say that as a general rule people will be more loyal and gravitate towards relationships with others, romantic or platonic.  Loyalty is the most distinct characteristic of the Dog people. 

New York City celebrates Chinese New Year of the Dog

According to 5 Element Acupuncture, this year is the Earth Dog and think down to earth terms. Look at how many people president Trump fired over lack or fear of disloyalty. Yes Trump was born in the year of the dog. Fire element Dog!

In New York City people may want to go to China Town to sample some authentic cooking give the waiter a good tip hopping the Universe will throw you a "bone".

You can also stop by my clinic to get acupuncture or cupping to get into a spirit of Chinese Year of the Dog as well and to get my own luck going I will give you $10 Off any single visit until the end Friday the 24th.

Who let the dogs out? I did:)

The Earth signs in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine refers to the Stomach and Spleen acupuncture meridians and organs. So I suppose dogs have good digestion and many of us can improve it too, but we still need to eat better and for energy rather than pleasure.

As a loyal dog would protect and help those in need, friends, family or complete strangers so we all need score karmic points and help people in need.  

So my advice and I am going to take it to heart myself is to look for improving relationships and cultivating new once.

Best Flue Season Advice from a NYC Acupuncturist

In 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic mortality rate for conventional medicine was 30% and homeopathic physicians 1.05, that is amazing.


I am seeing high numbers of Flu cases in my acupuncture clinic in New York City.

Bioresonance flue therapy in NYC


The major difference between Flu and a Cold is that Flu most often wipes you out, giving you that feeling of exhustion.

Where a regular cold may give you a runnin nose chills or fever.

Even though it is a tough flu season for the whole nation this year, in big cities like New York City with crowded trains and shops, I would think the flue is more prominent.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Flu care in New York City
Homeopathy is a 200-year natural medicine, developed by a German medical doctor and reformer  Samuel Hahnemann in 1800.

The homeopathic remedy used was Gelsemium the one used in the Flu Care formula on the picture above. Read further

1. Everyone knows about washing our hands with soap and water for a long time, so do that.

2. Everyone knows about the immune system and stress, so reduce your stress, do some deep breathing, Yogic breathing, Meditation, Gym, relaxing walking in nature. 

3.Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can also activate your immune system and get the defensive energy to strengthen your resistance to flue and influenza as well as recovery.

If you already got the flu you can take garlic or make garlic tea with mint and honey.

The best-kept secret is a homeopathic formula by Hyland called "Flue Care". If taken early enough may help you bounce off the disease and help recover quicker. 

Acupuncture and cupping during flue may shorten and reduce the symptoms of the flu.  Chinese Herbs can do all of the above, may help to prevent, reducing and eliminating the flu and its symptoms. 

I had a lot of success with bioresonance therapy, uring electromagnetic balancing using viral programs. Out of about 10 people who were coming down with flu about 7 felt better in in 30 to 90 min.  

The one who did not recover was an 86 year old woman with the history of many diseases and weakened the immune system, who came only once and the other person who came late in the flu progression with very heavy coughing and other symptoms and came only once.

So in conclusion, keep your stress to a minimum by resolving and improving your relationships and work environment and do preventative therapy like acupuncture, cupping and Chinese Medicine and always keep a bottle of Flu Care handy.

Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Your Life

There is a condition in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine when extreme Yang turns into extreme Yin and vice versa extreme Yin turns into extreme Yang.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”


New York City Acupuncture Ying Yang Life
Has it happened to you when you can no longer take it, you make an extreme move and change things around. Whether it's relationship, career, or just life's direction.  


When your tolerance reaches its peak, then you take a step in the right and opposite direction to remedy the situation your in, that is extreme Yang turning into extreme Yin.

It's like getting the air out of an overinflated balloon.

Or the opposite is true when a mundane is no longer an option and you take a leap of faith and take a risk or a chance on something or someone. That is extreme Yin turning into Yang.

It happens and happened to me all the time in the past. When you can no longer accept the current or future prospects, you take a leap of faith and start something new in an opposite direction, polarity or dynamics.

If the stress and pressure of the old career were not strong enough, I would never make the move to drop everything and go to Hawaii to become an NYC acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner with now 25 years of experience!  

Later in Life, I made another great decision an investment into electromagnetic medicine and  Bioresonance and biofeedback medical machines and I never looked back (but that is another story for another time).

I am an acupuncturist in NYC, and before I entered acupuncture profession I was a computer programmer in of the largest New York City Firms. 

It took me a long time to make the switch. What helped me was that first I was afraid of making the move fearing the uncertainties and lack of income, but then the prospect of doing nothing became scarier and I made the move.

The fact that my whole life would flash in front of my eyes and there would be this defining moment where a change or great progress could have been made, nothing was done, and now my life is nearing the end, scared me more than doing the unknown.

The deeper moral of this story is that in life we are given opportunities to make decisions that will either reward or hung us for the rest of our lives. (almost anything is fixable though).

If I never took a chance to leave my corporate job and become a licensed acupuncturist, then my life would be not as rewarding as it is now. I am sure a lot of readers had to make similar decisions.

The known became scarier than the unknown.

“when the risk of remaining tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to blossom” people explode into action just like a cork of well-shaken champagne takes off into the air.

Salute to those who took the action and improved and got burnt trying to grow and reach greatness!

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine theory of five elements state that certain colors correspond to certain organs in acupuncture meridian energetic pathways.


Everyone knows that red wine is good for the heart. In acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the red color corresponds to the heart.


white wine and acupuncture
As I was sitting at the dinner table on my vacation in Vienna thinking of ordering the red wine, most of my friends were ordering white wine. As I gave in to drinking the white wine, I  felt I was not getting the medicinal benefits. 

The Austrian wine was absolutely amazing, but the acupuncture practitioner in me wanted the health benefits. Then I had an epiphany, the white color correspons to the Lungs and Large intestine in acupuncture and herbal medicine, so it's got to be good for the lungs.  I was convinced. 
 acupuncture and  Chinese Medicine White whine


After getting home to New York I googled "white wine for lungs" and I was absolutely amazed that sure enough there was tons of scientific research linking white wine varieties to improving the Lungs and those researchers are not even acupuncturists, great news or what?

* See the study link at the bottom

Reserchers at the University of Buffalo did the study. It was done on 1,555 people from New York. This reaearch was presented at the American Thoracic Society.

So Red or  White whine either way, when you drink in moderation your body benefits.
Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in wine

The big question is how did Ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbalists and Acupuncturists know about it? A lot of Chinese Herbal Medicine is made with wine.


Now isn't it much better than 'the bitter pill' of Western Medicine? It was a joke and not  a  medical advice.  Please see your MD regarding your drinking choices and medical condition, cause I do not want to be sued, cheers!

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in the Winter

32 Union Square East #804, New York, NY 1003
For appointment/ consult, call 212-533-1192


Winter season in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is associated with the Kidneys. In my acupuncture practice in NYC, I adjust my acupuncture and Chinese Herbal treatments according to the season. 

Winter in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine 

Kidneys rule the Brains, Water Metabolism, and Reproduction.

Kidneys have a special relationship with the Heart/Bladder and the Lungs. You can think of Kidneys as your batteries (Positive + and Negative -). According to acupuncture and Chinese medicine, people with dark circles under the eys may have kidney imbalance. Weakness in the knes or lower extremities may also point to kidneys. 

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.

     
Kidneys have a close relationship with the Heart. The element of Kidneys is water and is responsible for water metabolism. The heart is fire, so you want a balance of water and fire in the body. Some people are either too hot or too cold. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help regulate the body temperature.

Kidneys control low back and if someone has chronic back pain, kidneys or its Yang pair Bladder channel is often chosen to treat it. Just like water can freeze (we are about 70% water) so can the human body and muscles can get cold and contract and cause more pain especially in the Winter. Acupuncture can address seasonal changes.


Foods to Eat in the Winter
bone marrow Chinese Medicine soup NYCAny 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 prepare and warm up your digestive system for food consumption.


Animal Products: Pork, duck, lamb, eggs, cheese, etc. Small amounts 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.

Grains: Barley, Millet. These are both mildly cooling and nourishing.

Emotional element of kidneys is "Fear", so if someone is exposed to a lot of fear may experience kidney imbalance (anxiety, restlessness insomnia, etc). Because Kidneys have a very special connection and relationship with the Heart, imbalance in one can and often affects the other. (season for the Heart is Summer)

Black Beans for Kidney Health

Foods Black in color are good for the Kidneys. Any beans, especially black once, black sesame seeds, walnuts etc.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Food Therapy.

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

     


In acupuncture and Chinese Medicine stresses postnatal energy cultivation. 


The postnatal energy that you have control over is mostly food we eat and the air we breathe.


As a licensed acupuncturist in NYC (which can be stressful) and a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Dietary wisdom, I understand the importance of food acting as medicine.

Humans are energetic beings and food should be thought of as a fuel to power our bodies and minds.
Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture food therapy
Each food color in Chinese Dietary Therapy influences a particular organ. 
Red is for the heart/small intestine and cardio, Yellow for stomach and spleen, Black for Kidneys and the Bladder, White for the lungs and large intestine and Green for the Liver and Gallbladder.

RECIPE: Pasta cooked separately, and sauteed vegetables: broccoli, shitake mushrooms, celery, carrots in olive oil with garlic, oregano, and parsley   For more recipes and dishes click

The more we are engaged in physical activities, the more the body and the mind seek energetic foods. 

Today I am just going to focus on many different food colors to benefit your health according to Chinese Medicine.  Here is a simple dish with many food colors to benefit your health.

People often say that they have no time to cook, then my answer to those, do you have time to be sick and stay in hospitals? I ask my NYC acupuncture patients where fast food is even "faster" to eat well and for energy.

Most of my dishes are cooked while I am away doing something else, exercising or just keeping an eye on the food. If I can do it, so can anyone.

Bon appetite!
