I’ve seen a drastic increase in hormone related illnesses in the last ten years. Unfortunately, no matter how clean our diet is, we can’t completely avoid all pollutants. Just in the last 3 months, I’ve seen 15 new female patients in their 20s. All of them got their first period between the ages of 8 and 10. All of them. This is just one symptom of how all the toxins and pollutants we’re exposed to are damaging all of us.
Some simple steps to minimize your risk
* Minimize or eliminate your consumption of:
-animal products (especially non-organic)
-sugar (real & fake)
* Avoid all plastic, especially in food packaging. See my blog post for more info.
* Do a liver cleanse at least once a year.
* Make sure you get plenty of healthy fats in daily. See my blog post for more info.
* Organic produce as much as possible. See my blog post for more info.
* Put a water filter on your taps and showers.
* Exercise that helps get your blood pumping & de-stressed 3-5 times per week.
* Have your hormones tested. If anything is off, you can naturally treat almost any imbalance.
* Get active. Whatever your political beliefs, we all what safe food, water, and air for ourselves and our children. Contact your state and federal representatives and let them know you vote and you want to see changes.
Live natural. Live well.
The combination of Chinese Medicine – acupuncture, Chinese herbs and nutrition – along with Western nutrition creates a synergy that helps manage weight in a healthy, individual manner. Chinese medicine speeds the metabolism, reduces cravings, helps reduce stress as well as support healthy food choices.
A typical treatment plan consists of an initial consultation followed by acupuncture. All patients receive a specifically tailored food plan that will indicate foods that should be eaten in moderation as well as a list of foods to be avoided. Herbal supplements and organic vitamins are used to adjust metabolism, cholesterol, energy, food cravings and even to manage diabetes. Weekly acupuncture treatments are recommended during the first month to accelerate results, then a maintenance program of every four to six weeks.
As everyone responds differently to treatment, each step along the way, up to and including a maintenance program once the desired weight goal has been achieved, is done on an individual basis.
This unique blend of Eastern and Western medicine is the optimal way to safely lose weight.
Live natural. Live well.
It’s a well-known fact that many people have a problem with some form of addiction. Whether it’s cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, food, caffeine, love, or sex, addiction doesn’t necessarily mean you’re unable to function or live a relatively manageable life. It can be an action or substance that is in any way negatively affecting your daily life and you find it virtually impossible to stop.
For many, life’s ups and downs are extremely painful and being “numb” is the easiest way out. For those in the performing arts, emotional sensitivity makes them fantastic performers but also causes a great deal of pain. And as previously noted, along with the pain comes the overwhelming desire to numb it.
Daily acupuncture is an effective way to ease the suffering of withdrawal and help with cravings. It also safely and effectively aids in dealing with the emotions that come up once sober.
My treatment protocol is best used in conjunction with therapy, 12 step programs, and the support of loved ones. I make the process less painful – both physically and emotionally – greatly increasing the chance of success. Make this really be your last bottom.
Imagine how much more deeply you’ll be able to connect with your family and friends… Imagine the sense of triumph and true happiness you’ll feel once sober…
Chinese medicine is also ideal for those already in recovery. The natural calming effect and emotional support is completely safe — no transference of dependency and no negative side effects.
“I’ve tried getting sober off and on for almost 20 years. Since working with Heather, I haven’t gotten loaded in almost 3 years. A miracle.” – Jack G., Singer
“My problem was with food. I ate any time I was upset. I was about 100 pounds overweight when I first came to Doctor Heather. With regular treatments, herbs, practical nutrition, and exercise, I’ve been able to keep the pounds off for over a year. I no longer reach for a bag of cookies. I’ve never been more secure in myself and in the way I feel and look.” – Louisa M., Actress
