Spring is almost here in New York City and in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine it' a liver and gallbladder energy.

The human liver can regenerate itself from as little as 25% of tissue. The liver is the Yin organ and the Gall Bladder 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, heart problems, infertility especially in women,  headaches/migraines, body toxicity, allergies,  depression and anxiety   
The liver element is wood and the heart is fire. So a lot of anger/wood causes fire/heart to overwork and creates organ stressors.

Liver and Gall Bladder open into the eyes and often affect the eyesight, as well as nails. Brittle nails could be a sign of poor liver function or insufficiency of the blood. Pink nails and tongue indicate healthy liver and smooth flow of energy in the body.

The good news is that the liver can regenerate itself and acupuncture with Chinese Herbs and Bioresonance therapy with Homeopathy and proper diet as well as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong can help balance the organs to harmony.

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

I noticed that some people are either angrier or more irritable in the Spring, perhaps it's that anger element associated with the liver. Also in big industrial cities like New York, busy high pace 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 liver opens into the eyes. 

Alcohol, anger, stress, greasy, fried foods, drugs, toxins (food, environmental).

In Acupuncture green color is for the liver
Sour tasting or green foods, because the taste for the liver is sour and the color is green. So green apples, lemon or lime, avocados, 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 organs and the mind.

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,

Chinese Lunar New Year in Five Element Acupuncture

Tree of Life Acupuncture

  (212) 533-1192


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.

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.
