Mention the term “Ozone Therapy” and most people react with a mixture of horror and confusion. Isn’t ozone bad for you? That is, after all, what we have all been led to believe for a long time. The weather man (or woman) was continually warning us about the dangerously high ozone level and runners were cautioned not to go out at these times.Read More
Cupping is one of the oldest methods of healing used in traditional Chinese medicine. The process involves creating a vacuum inside of a “cup” and placing it on the skin. The vacuum sucks some of the skin up into the cup, which produces the healing effect. Heavy glass cups, as seen on the left, are the traditional method and allow the acupuncturist to clearly see the skin and evaluate the effects of treatment. This method requires the introduction of a flame into the cup to produce the vacuum. Today, many practitioners use smaller plastic cups and a vacuum pump to suck the air out. These can be very effective for many conditions but don’t provide the same range of treatment opportunities as the glass cups.[Read more…]
Use this simple device inspired by Dr. John E. Upledger and created by John Matthew Upledger, which has been shown to create soothing Still Points like those you can achieve when receiving CranioSacral Therapy.
Applying gentle pressure to specific points on the back of your head has been shown to create a pause in the rhythm of the craniosacral system. This Still Point may increase the movement of fluid through the craniosacral system. This has been shown to release tissue tension and improve the body’s ability to relieve pain and stress naturally.
Simply lying in a relaxed position on the Still Point Inducer for 10 to 20 minutes a day may bring about positive changes in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to help in:
- providing deep relaxation and helping reduce stress
- easing headaches and chronic musculoskeletal pain
- facilitating your body’s self-correcting abilities
- promoting an overall sense of well-being
Still Point Inducers are currently on sale for just $20 while supplies last! Don’t wait. Come and pick up yours today!
People frequently ask me if I think that “detoxing” is necessary. My simple answer “Yes”. It is important to realize that your body is already designed to eliminate substances that are “toxic” to it. If these substances were allowed to remain they would impede the normal cellular functions in your body, ultimately leading to poor health, premature aging and death. In recent years there has been a lot of emphasis on toxins that we absorb from the outside through food, water, and air exposure.[Read more…]
Nutritional support for detoxification and metabolic clearing!
NutriClear is a unique product that supplies key nutrients for hepatic function, energy production and intestinal balance, The formula includes easily digested protein, medium chain triglycerides and extensive complement of antioxidants. NutriClear is also compatible with vegetarian diets!
How should this product be used?
Depending on your condition and rate of detoxification, a metabolic cleansing program may last several weeks. The use of NutriClear simplifies the process of defining a simplified, balanced diet with low allergenicity during the “wash-out” phase.
Which is better, mixing NutriClear with water or with juice?
NitriClear can be mixed either in pure water or in almond or rice milk, depending upon the individual’s program objectives.
Does Weight loss accompany a metabolic cleansing program?
In the usual scenario, fluid retention accompanies toxin buildup and as toxins are released and removed, retained fluids are lost. While designed to be part of a metabolic cleansing program, NutriClear may be useful as part of a comprehensive weight management program, such as Control-IT.
Is a detox program appropriate for diabetic or hypoglycemic patients?
NutriClear provides a low level of carbohydrates. The fat and protein content can be expected to slow stomach emptying and slow carbohydrate uptake by the intestine, thus having a minimal impact on blood sugar functions. Patients with blood sugar dysregulation should monitor their blood glucose.

Green powders are THE dirt-simple and inexpensive way to:
- Nourish yin and blood,
- Clear heat of all kinds, and even
- Drain dampness while moistening dry intestines (i.e. resulting in constipation with dry, bound stools)
In Western medical lingo, green powders keep your body hydrated. Simple as that.
Many (most) people exist in a state of semi-dehydration. How can it be otherwise?
Coffee, alcohol, stress, smoking and life (i.e. aging) all dry you out. Drinking more water won’t necessarily solve this problem since it tends to go straight through you.
But Green Powders actually moisten your tissues and intestines and even help build your blood by helping you absorb the liquid you drink and by gently cleaning out your dried out guts.
Find one you like and take a heavy dose first thing in the morning. You cannot help but feel the difference!

There is no doubt about it we do not live in a pristine world. We live in an environment unlike any in history. In today’s world of processed foods and environmental pollution, toxic substances exist almost everywhere.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), over 35% of the food testes in 1998 contained pesticide residues. Fifty-three pesticides classified as “carcinogens” are presently registered for use on major crops, including apples, tomatoes and potatoes. Additionally more than 10,000 additives are added to our food supply. In fact, an average American eats about 142 pounds of additives a year.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more and 1,000,000 Americans drink water laced with pesticides. In 2000 alone, more than 4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the ground and over 260 million pounds of chemicals were discharged into surface waters, i.e. lakes and rivers, making fish unsafe to eat and water unsafe to swim in or drink.
How does Detoxification Work?
The process of bio-detoxification takes place primarily in the liver, They liver is kept organ in out body’s self defense system, Detoxification is largely accomplished in 2 phases. In phase 1, the body’s enzymes activate the toxic substance to make them more accessible in Phase II. In Phase II, specific enzymes convert toxins into water soluble and harmless molecules that are then eliminated by the body.
The Detoxification process is critically dependent on an adequate amount of nutrition, specific vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. Without these specific nutrient, the liver cannot eliminate toxins. Without elimination, these stores toxins may be slowly released into the blood, contributing to many chronic illness, including some cancers.

In Chinese medicine, people who contract airborne allergies, ipso facto, suffer from a defensive qi vacuity. Since the defensive qi issues from the middle burner, this defensive qi vacuity is mostly due to a chronically vacuous and weak spleen failing to engender the lungs and defensive qi. Because of the close reciprocal relationship between the spleen and kidneys, there may also be a kidney qi vacuity. In either case, external wind evils may take advantage of this vacuity to enter the body where they obstruct the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing. Because the patient’s spleen is habitually vacuous, there is a tendency to phlegm dampness. This phlegm may be hidden or deep-lying, meaning that, during ordinary times, it is not apparent. However, whenever the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing of fluids is inhibited, this phlegm backs up and spills over, thus becoming apparent as mucus.
Therefore, this formula is based on the saying, “The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are the place where phlegm is stored.” Within it, Codonopsis, Astragalus, Coix, and Disocorea supplement the lungs, spleen, and kidneys, the three viscera which govern water metabolism in the body. Terminalia and Schisandra secure the lungs and specifically stop runny nose. Ledebouriella and Schizonepeta relatively gently dispel wind evils from the exterior while not damaging the defensive qi. Flos Magnoliae and Mentha open the orifices and free the flow of the nose, thus relieving nasal congestion. Periostracum Cicadae dispels wind and stops itching. Platycodon guides the other medicinals to the lungs and also transforms phlegm. Dry Ginger warms the lungs and transforms phlegm. The combination of Coix and Alisma seeps dampness via urination and, therefore, helps Atractylodes eliminate dampness. Licorice harmonizes all the other medicinals in the formula at the same time as helping fortify the spleen and supplement the qi.
The human nervous system is vastly complex as it coordinates innumerable processes via neurotransmitters. These chemical messengers are required for everything from signaling the heart and lungs to function, to enabling the body to sleep so regeneration and repair can occur. Neurotransmitter levels affect emotions and appetite, as well as energy levels. Unfortunately, neurotransmitters operate within a very narrow range and their balance can be easily disrupted by a variety of factors including genetics, immune function, diet, stress, and general chemical exposure. Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) is a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. It is one of the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters that also includes Serotonin, Dopamine, and Norepinehprine. It is commonly referred to as the anti-anxiety neurotransmitter. Patients with low levels of GABA often complain of, or present with, hyperactivity, anxiety, irritability, altered mood, and sleep difficulties. PheniTropic™ contains beta-Phenyl-gamma-aminobutyric acid (Phenibut), a natural derivative of GABA. Phenibut has been demonstrated to have a calming effect and may assist in instances of stress, anxiety, and even the improvement of impaired sleep.
