Auricular Acupuncture

Auriculotherapy or Ear Acupuncture is a well -respected 3,500 year old technique originating in Ancient Asian and Middle Eastern civilizations. Specific knowledge was passed down from master to student.  More recently, in the 1950’s Dr. Paul Nogier, a Frenchman, observed specific ear points in his patients that related to the major organs of the body.  This sparked a life-long study and the basis for Auricular Acupuncture today.  Dr. Nogier identified more than 100 specific points on the eternal ear that related to corresponding body parts, from musculo-skeletal to the internal organs.  As a result of his work, the ear has been likened to a “road map of the body,” identifying.

In Defense of Fruit

I believe there has been much confusion and ignorance surrounding “carbs”, that the complex ones are “healthy” while simpler ones are “unhealthy”. Or that we should exclude simple carbohydrates entirely. Even fruits, those nourishing, restorative, pro-metabolic, digestible, delicious and detoxifying products of nature, are banned from many diets. If we believe carbs are carbs and sugars are sugars we don’t consider the fundamental biochemistry of the different carbohydrate forms.

We are more obese, diabetic, hypothyroid, inflamed, adrenal deficient and reproductively-challenged than ever. We are approaching a medical crisis. In my.
