3 Points Update!
September 9 4:51pm
Trial and error: It's how we learn. It's the way we make things even better than before! March 28th, I spoke of a 3 point system to help build your immunity. Some people told me they felt stronger, while some felt the same or little to nothing at all. So I got back to "work" attempting to make this application even better. After 4 and a half months, I believe I've gotten some of the kinks out! Recently, I have partnered with the company EARSEEDS, and bought seeds to apply to a new protocol I've been working on: Applying seeds on #3The Interferon Point (for virurses) #2 Point Zero ( to bring the body to its normal pace) and #1Thymus Point (for the body's immune system.) There are 24 hours in a day, so why not apply pressure and massage these points every 8 hours? I had many volunteers willing to help with my system; 22 to be exact! Some had colds and some felt somewhat tired and rundown. Seeds were applied to their ears to points mentioned (seen on your left) and were some who did not use seeds at all but were instructed to massage point firmly. I also instructed all participants to drink fresh Elderberry, Blueberry, and Broccoli juice. Are you ready for the results: 19 out of 22 felt better, stronger! The other 3 felt a little relief but as one volunteer puts it: Not really a cartwheel moment! (lol) So now I'm working with these volunteers with an additional theory I just recently added to my practice: I call it" Ionic Tapping" ...STAY TUNED!
Note: The #3Point is the center, #2Point is on the right side of #3 and the #1Point is on the far right.

This moment in time is difficult; for you, for me, for everyone. The present pandemic is the largest we have faced so far; so much calamity so many lives. And yet there is a bit of blue in the sky! Why? Think for a moment: If this happened 100 or 200 years ago, when doctors, researchers, and others, that were not available to help combat sickness and disease, I believe I would not be writing this blog. And you would not be reading it! As a member of the human race first, then as an acupuncturist and naturopath second, I feel it's my duty to help those in need. Today I want to share a protocol that may be of help to those encountering the virus, recovering after the virus, and can be used to keep your immune system strong even if you don't have the virus. What is it?...3 Points!!! There are over 200 points on the human ear. In auricular therapy, these points are used to treat many conditions. Auricular Therapy is and can be proven effective when done correctly. Today's 3 points; The ThymusGland , Point Zero, and The VitalityPoint. When these points are activated, it creates a powerful signal to your immune system. In the past, I have treated patients with viral infections activating these points with...success! I apply my lasers to these points and massage them afterward. But you won't have to use a laser, or needle, to activate these points: just the tip of your index will do. As you can see, there is a diagram of the ear with various points listed. Locate the points I spoke of, then with either index finger firmly yet lightly massage each point(clockwise) for about a minute. Then apply pressure on that point for an additional 1 minute=2 minutes for each point for both ears. Note: Use only the 3 points I mentioned. Too many points overwork the immune system, As usual, I would like to add a juice recipe to sort of compliment this therapy. it's easy to make, and taste great too! Juice 3 carrots* 1 Beet *1 Apple* 1cm of Horseradish* 1 tablespoon of Blueberries, Add a teaspoon of honey....Bottoms Up! The 3 point massage can be done: First thing in the morning Late in the afternoon and just before you go to bed. Some of my patients reported a buzzing sensation in their nasal passages and chest area.....Unique! To all that are feeling a down ....Look up....The sky is the limit! Speaking wellness to one and all...Live well...Be Well!!!
Our Latest Blog Entry: Steel! Silver!! and Gold!!!
October 15, 2019
Steel,Silver, and Gold: 3 precious metals that can hold very great benefits for the mind,body, and soul. South Pacific, as well as Chinese practitioners use the metals to treat various ailments and conditions. Here is a brief example of this amazing theory: Gold stimulates, Silver sedates and Steel regulates: the mind body and soul. Let me further explain: Last month, a client of mine came in for a treatment. His main complaint was a lack of energy: "I feel like I've run out of gas early in the morning and completely on empty by 2p.m". After a ful exam I determined his statement valid;This client was indeed exaushted. I suggested if he wanted to try ear seeds to possibly his problem; he agreed. After a brief laser body treatment, I applied gold earseeds to strategic points to his ears. I then instructed to massage those points at particular times of the day (10a.m. 2p.m. 4p.m.) Believe it or not, the client fairin g much better does not grab for that extra cup of coffee (That wasn't really helping him at times anyway!) Seems lately, more of my clients request gold, silver ear seeds for energy and stress problems and steel ear pellets for smoking addictions and eating and drug addictions! It seems that steel normalizes the mind; brings the back to normal ..where you want to be! Until next time..Stay healthy my friends!
Get a jump on depression..Start now!!!!
Posted on September 29, 2018 at 11:10 PM
Greetings and welcome one and all; It's been a while.My recent research has indicated the human body begins to experience swings of depression right about a week before Halloween and there after. If you follow ancient Chinese Medicine, you are aware Autumn has a profound effect on the Lungs;and deficient lung energy manifest sorrow and depression.Think about it...It's true! So why wait until the momennt arrives when you can diminish, if not eliminate the onslaught? Rather than take medication that sometimes contain very dangerous side effects( Listen a Television commercial for ie. Abilify: Listen to voice narrating the disclosure...Food for thought?) Why not try a more safer narrural approach:How about using your body to heal itself.:Tthere is a point on your ear, when pressed correctly,,will give the body a substational amount of relief. This point can be found on either side of the ear just before the lobe.Use your index finger and thumb to apply light, yet firm pressure for about 30 seconds;switch ears and repeat process. I soggest performing this task once in the morning.and before bedtime.. As usual, I have a recipe for you. This months recipe is not only easy to make, it's downright delicious!:D All you need is a juicer and the following ingredients:
4 Chard leaves* 1Cup of Spinach*1Lagre Beetroot* 2 Oranges * 1 Lemon * 1Pieice of Tumeric Mix all of the contents together and serve. If you are not allergic to either pumpkin seeds or walnuts,you may add them. They call this drink "Happy Juicie" and I agree 100% In fact I drink about 3 glasses a day although once in the morning at start of the day is sufficient. Believe me when I tell you that depression can do a lot more than make you sad:It can cripple other vital organs in the body. Remember the Less you are depressed ,the more you will progress. StayHappy and Healthy my friends!
Here are a few points used to give relief to "Autumn Saddnest and even upcoming "Winter Blues" Place your index finger on the designated spot and place your thumb behind the ear for support. Apply firm but extreme pressure to the point for about 30 seconds.Release and take a deep breath.My ideal formula that use alot with my patients I call "Angel's Triangle:" Shenmen to Diazepam to Depression( I think you know where I'm going with this technique.:) The juice is a very good alternative to persciption meds. As I mentioned earlier, you don't have to drink it multiple times daily but it is effective containing all of the important vitals your body needs but in its natural form. I just like the taste of it; Epecially when it's slightly chilled!
Battle Stress....And Win!!!
Posted on November 27, 2018 at 6:55 PM
Happy Holidays....My how the time flew! Seems as if it was only a few months prior, we were giving these same salutations...right? Are you familiar with a song entitled: "It's the most wonderful time of the year? Well, for some indiviuals, this time of the year isn't really wonderful. Thoughts of loneliness, suicide, anger, unworthiness, anxiety, and just plain old feelings of overwhelm engulf the lives of so many people. Maybe you know a few people;or you could be one. No reason to be ashame...Iv'e been there myself...quite a few times! Nearly every ailment known to mankind can be traced to one word: S-T-R-E-S-S. If you have a cold or flu it is not a good feeling to posses;but believe it or not, if you stress yourself out about your runny nose, scratchy throat and slight fever, your immune system could weaken; and what started out as a simple winter cold could have you fighting for your life. I've said this so many times before...Stress Kills! But are there ways to combat stress? You betcha! There is an acupuncture point located on the ear, when massaged lightly, will soothe the mind and tranquil the body; It's called the Shenmen, and it is one on the most utilized points in acupuncture. Some practitioners needle the point; I massage the point with my thumb for about seven minutes and treat point with a blue laser. Recently, a young man suffering from extremely painful headaches, decided to try my protocol. The root of his headaches were extreme stress: Just 2 months prior to his visit, his doctor informed him of a nickel size lump on his chest and test proved it was malignant. I did not promise I would make him trouble free, but I did tell him that if we lessened the stress levels, his quality of life would improve tremendously. We started him on a regiment of Granny Smith Apples*Spinach* Celery *lemon (my usual juicing regiments),Deep Deep Breathing Exercise 2x daily - and he was instructed to massage the Shemen 3x daily. Twice a week, he came in for a laser treatment. I am happy to announce that the nickel size lunp has shrunk to a size a little smaller than a dime. And his attitude has changed dramatically. Just the other day after his treatment he proudly exclaimed: "You wanna know something, I feel everyday is the most wonderful time" Until next time my friends..Stay Healthy...And Beat Stress!!
This point called Shenmen is truly a dynamic point. Instead of needling the point I use Blue Sapphire Lasers to give the mind and body a euphoric feeling. When your mind and body is relaxed, your immune system strenghthens. I usually follow up treatments with ear seeds. ear crystals or ear magnets. To massage the point, use your index finger and massage clockwise.
Blue-Violet Laser really helps with healing
Posted on June 1, 2018 at 11:25 PM
In my last blog I discussed briefly about laser light being transmitted to acupuncture points. Today I want to talk about 405nm liight. Although 405nm is often called blue light, in all actuallity, the correct color call is violet. Surpringly, 405nm often has medicinal benefits,One in particular;anti bacterial, In Europe, 405nm light is being used for treating acne and cold sores with amazing results.As usual when an application is presented to me, I run with it. Whether you know it or not, cleaning your blood may eliminate viruises. Ever noticed newborn babies in the hospital with blue lights? In case you didn't know, the light is used to strengthen the liver,and you already know the importance of a healthy liver. Last week a gentleman feeling rather runned down lately, asked if fiber optic laser acupuncture could help him. After a half hour consultation, I knew what I wanted do to assist him. I placed a laser probe on his liver point and a second on his navel. It's been researched that every 20 minutes, your blood spiral cycles down to your navel and returns back to point of origin, with clean blood and travels throughout the body. My theory: Send communications to the body. The message: Send clean blood to the body. Kill all viruses. The treatment was approx 1 hour and even though the gentleman felt great, I urged him to continue treatments in the following days ahead . Even though he states he is feeling better, I urged him to take at least 6 more treatments. I've yet to see a person get well with one treatment: It took time for illness to manifest...it's going take time to get back in order. He is due for his second treatment next Saturday. I will keep you posted on his progress:D
