Read on to learn more about smoothies and how, with some moderation and effort, you can still enjoy them and stay healthy.

    in General Wellness, TCM / / 0 comments

    By now, most of us know the drill when it comes to a typical visit to the doctor. But when your doctor is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner, the process is a little different.

    Getting Enough Rest? Probably Not. Here’s What To Do Instead

    in General Wellness, TCM / / 0 comments

    If you’re like most people, chances are you’re not getting enough rest. Have you ever sat on the couch all day but still felt like you barely relaxed? That’s because, weirdly enough, not all rest is created equally. There’s different types of rest that our bodies and minds need to feel our best. Western Medicine says that we need 7-9 hours of sleep plus a half hour or so to get to sleep so that we can get into the deep sleep that allows our body to make repairs. Eastern medicine has a less “numeric” take on rest. Sometimes the kind of rest we need is sleep. But sometimes it’s a Netflix marathon, or a long drive, or a coffee date with your best friend. Here’s what you need to know about the different ways to rest up with eastern medicine so you can refuel and take on the world!
