Immunity + Lung Health Class + Clinic! Special Event November 19


The fall is a great time to take extra care of our lungs - this is when cold and flu season starts and the dry, windy weather kicks up allergies, coughs and other lung issues. For all of us in the Bay Area the awful fires this year have layered on a heavy burden of toxic smoke and breath-taking sadness, fear and shock. With my colleague Erin Wood of Erin Wood Acupuncture and Herbs, I'm offering a special afternoon class and treatment clinic at Vibrant Health and Wellness in downtown San Leandro. Learn herbs, foods, essential oils and breath work to help restore your lungs and prevent and treat cold and flu. After the workshop, we'll relax into a community style acupuncture treatment to boost your immunity and help you breath easy (needle free options available!)

Space is limited, $30 including samples and treatment. RSVP here.

Vibrant Health and Wellness in downtown San Leandro is home to an intimate upstairs workshop space. There is some parking including handicapped spaces behind the building, and lots of free street parking. The workshop will be held up one flight of stairs with a bathroom on the same level as the class. We will be using essential oils during the class. Call or email with any questions and I hope to see you there!

Friday Roundup - February 26, 2016

What I've been reading, writing, thinking about and indulging in this week

Talcum Powder Toxicity: Johnson & Johnson has to pay over $72 million dollars in settlements to women who developed ovarian cancer from regular use of talcum powder. This story is made even worse given that companies have known since the 1980s about the talcum-cancer connection.

Traditional Chinese Medicine insights into healthy skin: We've been focusing on healthy skin all month on TCMTalk, the livestream talk show I host with Denise Cicuto of Cicuto Acupuncture. Denise wrote a great article (and infographic) explaining the Chinese Medicine understanding of skin issues and how to support your skin with diet.

I'm fighting a late winter cold that's going around. This weekend, I might work my way through this list of cold remedies from around the world. Usually I simmer green onions and ginger in chicken broth for a minute or two, a traditional Chinese remedy that's amazingly effective.

Have a great weekend!
