OCD Controlling You? Take Back Control!

The Mind Game

Those who have never dealt with mental disorders can have a hard time understanding the mental battle those with OCD face everyday. When your illness dictates your actions and defines who you are, it is not as easy as it appears to break a habit or a behavior.

The feelings that consume your mind with OCD often include negative, anxiety and fear driven

alternative pain management

Bringing Awareness to Opiate Abuse and Alternative Pain Management in Rhode Island

An article in the Brown Daily Herald by Eben Blake published on sept. 18, 2014 stated, “Deaths in Rhode Island due to drug overdose have doubled since 2009, partially due to users who transitioned from prescription pill abuse to cheaper, more accessible drugs, such as heroin, said Traci Green, assistant professor of emergency medicine and epidemiology.”

The Providence Journal had an article posted on Apr. 28, 2015 by Lynn Arditi who wrote, “Massachusetts health officials said Tuesday that more than 1,000 deaths in 2014 are likely related to opioid overdoses, but its overdose death rate is still lower than neighboring Rhode Island’s.

A piece of the puzzle to early prevention of opiate abuse and the...

lab tests and digestive health

Understanding Lab Tests and Digestive Health

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, digestion is very important in supporting and maintaining good health. Some digestive problems such as Leaky Gut Syndrome are due to modern causes such as antibiotics and are best diagnosed with modern methods of laboratory testing.

Irritants in the digestive track can cause poor absorption of nutrients, food allergies, formation of inflammation that obstructs digestion and proper elimination and a congested/toxic liver. This complex and tangled web of conditions leads to all sorts of health issues as I outlined in a previous article here. Making matters even more complex is the fact that some chronic health issues rooted in poor digestive health may not even show signs of digestive problems. Obviously poor...

Seasonal Transition from Summer to Autumn

Seasonal Transition from Summer to Autumn

With autumn approaching and the beginning of the yin cycle, the energy of plants is moving down into their roots through this seasonal transition, helping the body become aware of the energy pattern of the season. This season is a time for the body to begin gathering energy for the colder months to come.

The lungs and large intestine are the organs associated with fall. The lungs are responsible for the circulation of Qi (the body’s natural flow and circulation), and are also very susceptible to cold and illness. For this reason, it is important to stay healthy and warm during the season. If the Qi circulation is weakened, muscles will not be able to warm the body properly.

Autumn Foods:
Vegetables of autumn like carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach...
