If you’re interested in the smoking cessation program I offer to help you kick the habit I’d be glad to talk with you and answer any questions you may have about this successful program – call today: 401-219-6446.

The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day.

Stress Reduction

In Traditional Oriental Medicine stress can be viewed as an excess condition like fire that overheats the body and causes dis-regulation to many major body functions including digestion, sleep, mental focus and stamina.

Body function is based on a natural rhythm of cyclical patterns – sleep, activity, eating, inhaling, exhaling and so on. Moderation and consistency is the key. Excessive or irregular patterns become stressful and can cause health imbalances. Regularity is the key to good health. A consistent schedule is required, for example; going to bed and getting up at the same time, eating at the same times each day, regular exercise, right down to simple patterns of inhalation and exhalation all can have an impact on health.

Basically, there are two types of stress – physical stress...

Prevention for Children

UPDATE Oct 1, 2014 >>> The Rhode Island Department of Health has confirmed that a Rhode Island child died last week from Cumberland as a result of Staphylococcus aureus sepsis associated with enteroviral infection (EV-D68). Infection by both Staphylococcus aureus sepsis and EV-D68 is a very rare combination that can cause very severe illness in children and adults.

Today’s self-care tip is about weight gain and lower back pain. As I briefly covered in a previous tip, stress can lead to emotional eating which can lead to weight gain and low back pain. Let’s focus on how excess weight in the abdominal region can put a strain on the low back.

0 Weight Gain and Low Back Pain

In the medical practice of acupuncture there are meridians or channels of qi or energy flowing through the body. Along these channels or as I like to call them “lines of influence” lie acupuncture points. These points have an influence on qi flow and the health of the body. Now along the center line of the back is a meridian also known as the Governing vessel. The Governing vessel basically follows the spine. There is an important acupuncture point just below the 2nd lumbar vertebrae...

low back pain

Today’s tip is on stress and low back pain. I want to give you a brief overview to help make you aware of the adverse impact stress has on your body and particularly low back pain. It’s obvious that physical stress such as bending or lifting heavy objects can wear on the back over time, but mental-emotional stress, which is not so obvious can weaken and tire out the back as well.

0 Stress and Low Back Pain

In Traditional Chinese Medicine and the practice of acupuncture emotions have a strong effect on our health. In health we need to find balance in our expression of emotions but when we get stuck in the same old emotions day after day this becomes extreme and problematic. Small doses of stress can be healthy and challenge us to grow stronger but constant stress cannot be sustained...

Starting September 11, 2014 we will begin to slowly introduce the second section regarding form correction and purpose based on martial art principles and practiced to engender optimal health.
