Did you miss your calling? Do you feel you should be living a different life, or even worse, COULD BE living a different life that your “stupid self” chose not to or didn’t take advantage of in the past?

Ep63 - What Do You Treat First: EXCESS or DEFICIENCY?

11/16/2019
Acupuncturists tend to focus on treating deficiency (or weaknesses) in their patients instead of excess. In this podcast, I describe the difference and break down the thinking of why you should focus on one versus the other. It is important for us to understand why an illness is taking place versus what exactly the patient presents with. Another idea that relates to this is treating the root cause rather than trying to “fix” the patient by tending to their current signs and symptoms. Try...

Ep62 – Are You Connected?

9/29/2019
In a world that claims to be so connected, why do we feel so little connection with each other? Whatever happened to kindness, to caring for others, to respecting other people and treating them the way they deserve? This life has one certainty; that it will end.
