Deep Breathing to Calm Your Mind

Deep Breathing to Calm Your Mind

While working in acquired brain injury rehabilitation, I would use deep breathing techniques with my clients as a way to reduce stress and help them cope with physical pain. It hadn’t occurred to me that this was a form of meditation and that mediation starts with the breath. Now that we’ve been using the So Hum meditation from 6 Ways Deep Breathing Helps You, I wanted to share another beneficial breathing technique. This is great for clearing mental fog or waking you from that afternoon slump. Before you can calm the mind you must control the breath.  To help further your experience try Breathing for Clarity and Calming: 1. With the right hand, fold your index and middle finger and curl

From The Garden: 5 Medicinal Herbs

    Even though I live in a condominium I love growing my own herbs. There’s something satisfying about walking outside, picking something from the ground and using it in this evening's meal. It’s fresh, inexpensive and easy. Herbs add flavour to cooking and also have medicinal properties. Here are 5 Healing Herbs from the Backyard Garden or Balcony: Chamomile This herb has been used as a tea to calm and soothe feelings of anxiety.

Medicinal Mushrooms and Other Tales of Fungi

Medicinal Mushrooms and Other Tales of Fungi

Medicinal Mushrooms and Other Tales of Fungi www.drlisapricend.com As the song goes, I wasn't looking, but somehow they found me. It's a tale of how my professional career has seemingly revolved around, been influenced by and now inspired by mushrooms.   In the mid '80's I entered an undergraduate school to study environmental microbiology and biochemistry. It was a forestry school, though I was not studying forestry, I had to meet certain forestry remnant requirements like ento   mology and dendrology to graduate. This also included a four week long intensive study on an island in the Adirondacks studying mycology (fungi;mushrooms).   My intent was to be one of those s

Metabolic Syndrome: Are you at Risk?

Metabolic Syndrome: Are you at Risk? A blog or two ago I wrote about the scientific connection between metabolic syndrome and increased risk for developing some forms of cancer, and increased chance of remission. Controlling metabolic syndrome is of particular importance to BRCA postive and Lynch syndrome identified carriers who are looking for ways to prevent cancer, and those cancer survivors looking to increase remission rates.   Ever the optimist I wanted to address how we can reverse and/or prevent the syndrome. Let's take a closer look at what it is.   Metabolic syndrome looks a lot like pre-diabetes with elevations in blood sugar levels and hemoglobin A1c values. Ho

Acupuncture – The Natural Path to Pain Relief

Acupuncture – The Natural Path to Pain Relief

Acupuncture restores the normal flow of Qi or “life force” when it is blocked by illness or injury. No matter what the cause or where your pain is, acupuncture can be a safe and effective treatment. Acupuncture can help you avoid the unwanted side effects of many pain medications and heal faster by increasing circulation and attracting white blood cells to the injured area. One of the most common problems our patients come to us with is back pain caused by minor strains, serious accidents, herniated discs, or even sciatica. With acupuncture, even acute or chronic back pain can disappear in a few sessions…although more serious conditions may require more treatments. If you or a loved one
Acupuncture Reduces Ankylosing Spondylitis Pain

Acupuncture Reduces Ankylosing Spondylitis Pain

Researchers found that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of a type of chronic inflammatory arthritis known as ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Ankylosing spondylitis commonly affects the spinal joints, pelvis, sacroiliac joints, eyes and intestines. Long-term, AS causes fusion of the anterior aspect of the spinal vertebrae. Ligaments and tendons are also affected and tendonitis may occur. This condition is both genetic and related to autoimmune dysfunction. Ankylosing spondylitis is categorized in Traditional Chinese Medicine in several domains: lower back pain, kyphosis, spinal rigidity. In the advanced stages of the illness when bone fusion is present, it is categorized as bamboo spi
Spring: Season of Renewal and Growth

Spring: Season of Renewal and Growth

According to Chinese Medicine, spring is represented by the wood element and is the season of the Liver which is responsible for the free flow of energy throughout the body. Wood represents the time for fresh ideas and new starts.  Unsurprisingly, its color is green like the fresh growth of spring. Wood governs your spine, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.  A wood imbalance can lead to spinal problems, poor flexibility or arthritis.  Wood also governs your eyes. But most important for your mood, wood governs your liver. The emotion associated with your liver is anger. If your liver is imbalanced your Qi will be disrupted and you’ll be angry.
