Testimonial from a recent “Graduate”: I wanted to share with you the good news that I am pregnant! I just entered into the second trimester and everything is looking great! You and your yoga class was so incredibly helpful to me. It connected me to my body in new ways that really helped me heal from my miscarriages and prepare my body for future pregnancies. It also introduced me to wonderful supportive people that have been a huge part of my coping during this journey. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and stories with me. I am very grateful. B.L.S.

Any of you who’ve been in to see me recently know I been pretty excited about a “new to me” product. I was shopping for groceries and was about to grab a container of chicken broth when I did a double take. There, nestled above the chicken and turkey broth in neat, friendly rows was chicken and turkey bone broth. It stood like a fairytale knight in shining armor proudly saving my family and patients from the dreaded scourge nutritional depletion.

Seriously though I love the stuff and make it myself often. I use either beef or chicken bones and then make soup. It keeps me and my family happy and healthy, especially through the winter season. It’s a great immune system strengthener, high in protein, collagen and minerals and builds the qi and blood. I often prescribe it to my patients but most don’t make and drink it as often as they need to for it to be effective. I especially love it for those struggling with fertility, those with overall weaknbone broth in Seattle WAess, tendon or ligament injuries or postpartum women. Kids love it too and it’s great for those following a GAPS diet.

Here’s the thing. It’s a no brainer. I compared the nutritional content of the regular broth to the bone broth. Regular broth has 1 gram of protein in 1 cup and bone broth has 14!!Are you worried about the taste? Don’t be. The taste is very similar to regular broth and it’s delicious. Now there are no excuses people! If you don’t have time to make it yourself, you can buy it premade. Just heat, add salt (it’s low in sodium), any other yummy veggies or meat (optional) and you have a delicious fortified drink.

The ages old East Asian medical season is fast becoming the next big trend. It’s already hit LA , Portland and even Kobe Bryant is drinking it.

So pick some up at your local market or make some yourself.

facet-joint384Facet joints allow your spine to twist, flex and extend without injury. They are like hinges protecting the spine from excessive movement and trauma. Unfortunately, like all joints in the human body they are vulnerable to injury and degeneration. Some of the symptoms associated with facet joint dysfunction are:

1) localized low back pain

2) low back pain that moves into your gluts

3) pain aggravated by extending your back.

Causes of this type of injury can range from sports injuries, such as running or soccer, all the way to prolonged sitting or repetitive movements.

In acupuncture, there are a series of points that run adjacent to the spine called Hua Tuo Jia Ji points. These points are used to treat the tissues and surrounding structures of the spine. These points can be used to address the signs and symptoms of facet joint pain. Acupuncture can help decrease the pain, inflammation and local swelling seen in this situation. Please contact Glow Natural health Center if you have any questions about acupuncture and how it can help in this situation.
