Acupuncture for the Pineal Gland, Navarre Acupuncture and Wellness in Navarre, FL

I wrote on the importance of pineal gland on September 2020 edition of Natural Awakening North West Florida

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the primary point for pineal gland support is yin tang, located in the middle of the forehead, between the eyebrows. This is in an important anatomical location—the place where light enters the skull to activate the pineal gland. Read More Here.

Worry: Late Summer’s Emotion

by Pamela Purser, AP

I have seen more worry, fatigue, and digestive issues than usual since late July. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Late Summer (late July to mid-September) is the period known as the season of Worry.

Worry: Late Summer’s Emotion, Navarre Acupuncture and Wellness in Navarre, FL

There’s plenty to worry about. Yet, as natural beings, we get affected by our natural environment, especially the season we are in.

Worry can look like over-thinking, anger, self-doubt, confusion, insomnia, resentment, and frustration.

The body organ that gets impacted by Worry is our digestive system. On top of digesting our daily meals, we have so much to “digest” this year. Changes are occurring at a fast pace.

Common symptoms can be seen with our digestive and appetite disturbance, such as feeling bloated, burping, abdominal distention, and pain. Some may have symptoms like weak body and limbs, or some may get aggravated with strenuous activities.

5 Mindful Modalities to cope with Worry:

i)               Be mindful of what you’re ingesting. These include food, emotions, environment, media, and life experiences.
ii)           Identify the Worry. Overthinking of what to wear, what food to eat. Identify and learn to eliminate unnecessary Worry.
iii)         Meditation. Works wonders on calming our minds.
iv)           Gratitude. Count your blessings. Every second, every day. I am grateful for what I have, the experience, and the ability to help others to feel better.
v)             If you’re following steps one through four and still want professional support to address your Worry, acupuncture is a great option.

Acupuncture and Emotional Baggage, Navarre Acupuncture and Wellness in Navarre, FL

As we travel through life, we collect many things -- material and immaterial – baggage.

If it is a material, some may have easily had tossed it, donated it, or gave it away.

Can you just toss, donate, or give away your emotional baggage?

Three common pieces of emotional baggage seen in the clinical setting

  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Fear

Often, excess emotional baggage is the root of body pain symptoms. Intriguingly, it is often ancestral or inherited from the past.

Acupuncture Benefit to Pre- and Post-surgery

Acupuncture Benefit to Pre- and Post-surgery, Navarre Acupuncture and Wellness in Navarre, FL

The human body perceives any surgery as trauma, manifest as stress. This involuntary stress weakens the immune system, interrupts the guts motility, and leaves the body more vulnerable to infection.

Fact#1: Before surgery, patients sometimes manifest symptoms in the form of physical pain, fatigue, tingling or numbness, stress, and anxiety.

Acupuncture treatments help prepare the body by relieving anxiety, decrease pain symptoms, and strengthen the immune function by regulating the blood and body fluids. Remember, blood contains hemoglobin, which can transport oxygen.

Fact#2: After surgery, the human body intelligently perceives surgery as an invasive procedure. A surgery is not a regular occurrence in the body. The immune system may get weakened, the guts may get compromised, and this leaves the human body more susceptible to infection.

Acupuncture can accelerate the healing process, increase the immune function, enhance the building of red blood cells, regulate guts, improve lymph drainage, and relieve pain.

Scar tissue is the common side effect of surgery. Acupuncture is excellent to help with keloid healing and reduce the size of the scar.

Recommendation: No matter what the surgery is, I would recommend daily acupuncture treatment for one week before and after surgery.

Clinical: One sample case. I have treated a patient who undergone second-foot surgery. The first surgery was a failure, but the second surgery healed flawlessly with acupuncture treatments, done before and after surgery. The patient wished to have known acupuncture during the first foot surgery.
