Prepare for winter ills by building up your immune system this fall

Fall is the season when we begin to see patients with sore throats, coughs, runny nose, body aches, fever or chills. Often patients will call to cancel an appointment because they do not realize that we can treat these ailments with acupuncture and herbs. Before those symptoms hit, the most practical approach is to build your immune system, develop a system for cold/flu prevention, and getting immediate treatment if you do get sick. At ilumina we recommend the following practices for cold and flu prevention:

Acupuncture

In Chinese medicine fall is the season of the lungs when we build the lung qi to prevent and fight respiratory tract infections. To build the immune system, get acupuncture twice a week for four weeks. Then if you get sick, get acupuncture immediately.

Lifestyle

Exercise daily for 30-60 minutes. Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night, with lights out by 11 p.m. Eat foods rich in the powerful antioxidant, Quercetin - Quercetin is found in red onions, grapes, blueberries, tea, broccoli and red wine.

Chinese herbs

Listed below are three Chinese herbs we have packaged together to provide you with a first defense against Cold & Flu season:

Jade Wind Screen: A classical Chinese herbal formula that is used to prevent colds and the flu. It is a great formula to take if you come in regular contact with other people who may be ill. But everyone stands to benefit from this formula. I take it regularly starting in the Fall and through the end of the flu season in the Spring. The formula works by building the wei qi or energy that protects the body. In other words, it builds the immune system and is taken preventatively. Cost: $19.95

Yin Qiao: Another important formula to have on hand. This formula can be used for a variety of symptoms including fever and chills, body aches, sore throats, and upper respiratory infections. Begin taking Yin Qiao at the first sign of a cold or the flu. Your symptoms will dissipate or the course of the cold or flu will be greatly shortened. Cost: $16.95

Fritillaria & Pinellia Formula: If you develop a cough with yellow or green phlegm, you will want to take Fritillaria & Pinellia Formula. This syrup can be used for a phlegmy cough, sore throat, and fullness in the chest or symptoms associated with bronchitis or pneumonia. This is a great alternative to over-the-counter cough syrups. This formula is also safe for children. Cost: $17.50

Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage with Audrey

Audrey has just completed the next level of training in the Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage Techniques. This non-invasive, external massage is focused on the organs of the abdomen including the reproductive organs. It helps to gently realign the uterus to its correct position allowing for the free flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems. Once the uterus is in its proper place, there is improved homeostasis to support and enhance fertility. Some symptoms/conditions this type of massage can benefit include:

  • Painful or irregular ovulation and/or menstruation
  • Dark brown blood at the onset or end of menstruation
  • Back pain with menstruation
  • PMS
  • Endometriosis, Uterine fibroids, Uterine polyps
  • Difficulty getting pregnant/infertility
  • Scar tissue or adhesions from previous abdominal surgery
  • Chronic constipation

During your massage session, Audrey will focus on the abdominal area, but may include other massage modalities such as Swedish massage and Trigger point therapy/acupressure to relieve tension and open the flow of energy in the meridians. Audrey will also go over some easy-to-follow self care instructions for you to do at home. The self care techniques help to enhance and optimize fertility and results from your session.

Marion Light, healing energy for your body, mind, and spirit

2011 has been an interesting year for many of us. As we move toward the end of the year and start thinking about what we have been through and what we truly desire in our lives, it becomes increasingly important to look within for the answers we need.

Whether going through a breakup in a relationship, losing a job, experiencing financial issues, health crises or difficulty with fertility or menopause, it is essential to work through the emotions and limiting beliefs that seem to resurface at times of crisis and transition. The challenge then becomes an opportunity to connect with yourself in a deeper way which both heals the pain and allows for a more peaceful movement through whatever you are experiencing. We cannot change or control what happens in our lives, however we can change our relationship to it. This then creates an experience of inner peace and freedom.

Working with Marion helps to connect you to the root of what is challenging you and thereby free yourself from the grief and sadness from the past and anxiety of what is ahead. You will learn to stay in the present moment and release the limitations of your intellectual mind and connect with the wisdom within you. A session with Marion includes a combination of compassionate communication and energy work: craniosacral therapy and polarity therapy. You will leave feeling closer to your essential nature and more able to navigate the challenges that accompany us on our life’s journey..
