Considering the facts regarding the nutritional content in our food supply today can be a daunting task. Most of our patients are not aware of the lack of nutrition in the foods they consume with the best intentions of eating a healthy diet. For instance, 1 cup of organic spinach is equal to 60 cups of conventionally grown spinach in so far as nutrition is concerned. That is one example of hundreds of foods that we eat daily.
As we age and experience life to the fullest, our essence wanes. This is the Chinese medical view on aging and the effects of aging on our bodies. Having grey hair is one of those effects and within Chinese medicine lies an effective therapy to turn it around.
Catching a cold or flu from a co-worker or family member can really throw us for loop. We educate all of our patients on how to recognize the early signals that the body is sending; notifying s that something is wrong. Most of these signs are both subtle and common, and most of the time we miss them.
Many of us work very hard and some of us also play hard. Without proper nutrition and rest, this kind of lifestyle can leave us feeling tired and in some instances, even slightly depressed. The body can take only so much stress. Whether it is psychological or physical stress, our body’s response usually tells us it’s had enough.
We are pleased to announce some new developments at the clinic. First, we now have a new tool for pain and other symptom management which is a needle free ear stimulting machine. As you relax, we stimulate specific areas on your ear to elecit amazing pain relief. The sensation in the ear is virtually un-noticable while the effects are lasting.
When we get back to walking, running, cycling or going to the gym, occasionally we find that we have aches and pains that tend to persist or even hinder our progress toward better health. We see this a lot in our south Austin clinic and our experience tells us that these patients tend to mend rather quickly.

According to the American Medical Association, stress is the leading cause of over 80% of all disease in the world. This can be a startling statistic or can be viewed as very empowering fact of life. In Austin, we all share in a fairly stressful life, from dealing with traffic, to problems with school (whether as a parent or student). Managing this can be a challenging affair.
