Acupuncture

How is acupuncture treatment done?

Acupuncture generally involves several weekly or fortnightly treatments. Most courses consist of up to 12 sessions.  Most sessions last about 30 minutes.

The patient will be asked to lie down, either face-up, face-down or on his/her side, depending on where the needless are inserted. Once inserted, the needles will remain there for about twenty minutes.

How does acupuncture work?

Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. If needles are inserted into these points with appropriate combinations it is said that the energy flow can be brought back into proper balance.

Acupuncture practitioners say that the stimulation increases bloodflow while at the same time triggering the activity of our own body’s natural painkillers.

 

Conditions successfully treated by acupuncture include:

General:  Headaches & migraines, fatigue and low energy, improvement of overall health & strengthening of the immune system
Research has proven that acupuncture is successful in improving mood and energy, relieving pain, encouraging healing after injury, and in maintaining good overall health. It can also be effective in reducing or eliminating the need to take certain medications.

Acupuncture is one of the tools used by Naturopathic doctors to treat a wide variety of health problems. Naturopathic doctors have extensive training in the use of acupuncture and often use acupuncture in combination with other natural treatments as part of an integrated approach to health.

The Lighter Side of Cinco de Mayo

Sure, Americans have turned Cinco de Mayo into another reason to eat and drink to excess (see also: St. Patrick’s Day, Chinese New Year, and Oktoberfest). And hey, it’s hard to resist a good excuse to enjoy some nachos and a salt rimmed margarita. But there’s more to this celebration than food and drink.

Spanish for “fifth of May,” Cinco de Mayo is a regional holiday in Puebla, Mexico, discount michael kors and other parts of the country that celebrates the Mexican army’s unlikely win over the French at the Battle of Puebla in May 1862. (It is not, contrary to popular belief, Mexico’s Independence Day, which is September 16th and a national holiday.) What started as a regional event in Mexico has gone global and is now embraced in the United States.

You can enjoy the fiesta without regretting it the next day. Consider these handy tips to cut calories and fat from your Cinco de Mayo fare, courtesy of Leslie Fink, Weight Watchers Recipe Editor/Nutritionist.

Be Smart About Bebidas

(That’d be “drinks.”) Since alcohol is almost always included in the festivities, plan ahead for ways to minimize the damage.

Embrace diet soda as a fake michael kors mixer. Or better yet, plain seltzer water. It’s not the alcohol that packs the PointsPlus value punch in a mixed drink, it’s usually the mixer, be it soda, juice or that sweet and sour mix you’ll find in a typical restaurant margarita. Consider instead going with a drink that lets you can swap a diet version of a soda, like a rum and Diet Coke, or use Diet 7 Up in your 7 and 7. Or stick to wine or Champagne for a classy sip.

Beware of light beer. Beer drinkers, know this: the lighter the beer, the lower the alcohol content. That means you might find yourself drinking more of it, thus defeating the purpose of going light in the first place. Portion control is key when it comes to beer.

Pace yourself. When ordering your beverage of choice, ask the bartender for a glass cheap michael kors handbags of water, and alternate between that and your drink. This is not only smart from an inebriation and hangover prevention standpoint, it will also just slow you down and prevent you from losing track of how many drinks you’ve had. (It might also help curb the urge to mindlessly pick at that that bowl of chips and salsa.)

Swap in cheap Michael Kors smashed black beans for some of the ground beef in your taco or burrito fillings to bulk it up. Black beans are low in fat, high in fiber and have fewer PointsPlus values replica michael kors than regular ground beef. Simply ask your waiter for extra black beans instead. Or, if you’re not afraid of a little open burrito surgery, do it yourself. Simply slice cheap michael kors bags open the top of the tortilla (like a baked potato) and spread it apart. Pick and choose what to add and subtract and voila your own, PointsPlus value friendly burrito.

Choose your meat carefully. Using lean ground beef or lean ground turkey instead of regular ground beef is a good idea, but be careful. “Plain ground turkey, as opposed to lean ground turkey or ground turkey breast, can have more fat and calories than lean ground beef,” Fink says. When you’re painting the town rojo this Cinco de Mayo, make sure the dish your server brings you is lean ground turkey. Better yet, to play it safe, just stick with beef. At least you’ll know exactly what you’re eating.

Use salsa instead of fatty salad dressings. It’s not Cinco de Mayo without salsa, right? Whether tomato based or made with mango, it’s all veggies, so you can’t really go wrong here.

Go baked, not fried. Make baked cheap Michael Kors nachos instead of fried ones, and beware all that gooey cheese. Slice up whole wheat tortillas into wedges and bake them until crisp. Coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with your favorite Mexican seasonings.

That cheesy feeling. Use shredded cheese instead of big chunks or slices on your tacos or burritos so you michael kors cheap can use less but get the flavor. Another note on cheese: sprinkle the fattening stuff on top of your dishes where its flavor is most noticeable, as opposed to mixed into a dish. That’s portion control, right there. What you see on top is what you get. If the fattening stuff is mixed in the dish, you’re in the cheap michael kors dark. Opt for small amounts of highly flavored cheeses “since just a little bit has a big impact on flavor,” Fink says.

Instead of piling on the usual fattening condiments like sour cream and cheese, top your dish with Michael Kors handbag outlet healthier Mexican flavors like chopped fresh cilantro, halved grape tomatoes or diced red onion.

This one’s obvious, but needs mentioning: use low fat sour cream and cheeses instead of regular. If you’re at a restaurant and low fat sour cream and cheese isn’t an option, go light or simply scrape it off your meal.

Fear not the guac. Rumors abound that avocados are “bad.” First, remember that an avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. It contains zero cholesterol but also, yes, some fat. But that fat is mostly monounsaturated and considered a “good” fat because it helps to increase HDL (good) cholesterol and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, Fink says. Along with being a good source of fiber, avocados also are rich in potassium, some B vitamins and vitamin E. Just be careful not to overdo it as guacamole can be high in PointsPlus values. Also, check out how it’s prepared. (Some restaurants add regular mayo to it which bumps up the PointsPlus value further.) Looking for a good guacamole recipe?
