Mental Chatter and Obsessive Eating

What do I mean by mental chatter and obsessive eating? Your mind is always racing. You feel busy in your head with all that mental chatter. Your head is full of lots of thoughts swirling around. There are so many things to do but so little time. You’re so busy constantly brainstorming and planning. You’re admired for your multitasking skills with so many projects and tasks to consider but you’re health is falling apart. Your eating habits become influenced by this mental chatter. You’re gaining weight and wonder why?

If this sounds familiar I’d like to offer a simple suggestion to be aware of and consider changing. Thinking requires energy and one source of energy comes from the very foods we need to eat to support and maintain body function. Change your thinking and your body will follow.

Chi Kung is the Cultivation of Qi (vital life force)

I have been working hard to create an online course to teach a form of Chi Kung (Qigong) called 4 Seasons Chi Kung – an ancient health rejuvenating exercise to influence the flow of qi (vital life force) through specific internal organs and attune the body’s health to seasonal change.

acupuncture and how many treatments

Wondering about acupuncture and how many treatments?

New patient’s coming in for acupuncture treatment will often ask, “How many treatments will it take to address my health issue?” This is a difficult question to precisely define. Benefits differ from patient to patient mostly because each patient’s personal state of health defines their natural healing ability – something I explained in a previous article called Acupuncture Stimulates Natural Healing Abilities.

Here’s an example; two patients come in with back pain; Patient One has additional health issues including being over-weight with high blood pressure, diabetes, migraine headaches and arthritis. Patient Two is in pretty good health and only complains about back pain. It’s easy to understand that Patient Two is in better shape and...

Overcoming depression

The Struggles of Battling Depression

One of the most common frustrations for those suffering from depression is the lack of motivation to do regular daily activities, an inability to find enjoyment and an overwhelming amount of negative thoughts. Depression cannot be simply cured by “mind over matter”, but that does not mean it can’t be treated and improved significantly. Depression is not an illness that one should have to suffer through alone, treatment and therapy can be crucial to the healing process back to better health.

Along with treatment options you may be considering, small additions to your daily routine can prove to have significant effects on lowering depression symptoms over time.

Put yourself and your mental health first

It is easy to put your health on the back-burner...

Top 10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture

As a holistic medicine, acupuncture stimulates natural healing abilities.

There is a bit of confusion when thinking acupuncture claims to cure many different health problems. It’s inaccurate to think acupuncture claims to cure anything. Acupuncture is a therapy that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal.

The body has the ability to heal itself. Imbalances and weakness in the body can obstruct these natural healing abilities. Acupuncture is a therapy that stimulates the body’s innate healing abilities in order to restore balance and rejuvenate health naturally.

It’s important to note many conventional medicines also don’t cure and often only mask the underlying root cause of the problem. A medicine that requires a lifetime of use does not provide a cure.

Also remember that...

Taking an active approach to treating your OCD will only bring a positive return into your life. When you decide to take the step toward better health, you would be surprised at the results.

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
