We’re seeing almost record heat these days. It’s hot out there, friends! People tell me they drink enough water. I believe they believe they do! But, we are seeing more patients come in the clinic these days feeling weak, tired and some even are experiencing some confusion. Those are symptoms of dehydration.

To combat dehydration, try coconut water from time to time. If you don’t like the taste of it, add a little juice. You will be amazed at how quickly you will feel refreshed after drinking it.

And PLEASE help yourself: Come in for your summer tune-up! Summer governs four meridians, and one of them is the Heart Meridian. In the clinic, we are seeing a lot of Heart Meridian problems, including insomnia, palpitations, fast heart rate, dizziness, and feeling “vexed.” (Okay, you may not know what “vexed” is – it’s a very old word. It means that hot-ish, agitated, or an “I don’t know what’s wrong with me” feeling.) Feeling vexed usually comes in August, but this year we are seeing it earlier. Also, try meditation; it can do wonders. Check out the information here and join us from 9:30 a.m. – noon, July 18, at our clinic to learn more about it.

Also, over these past few weeks we’ve seen “Summer Colds,” and summer has barely started! We had a long cold, damp and rainy winter. So please come in for your tune-ups. Call us at 386-734-4126 to schedule it or for an appointment the same day.

Speaking of same-day appointments, WE ALWAYS HAVE TIME FOR YOU. Maybe not the exact time you want, but if you call in that day and I am there (99% of the time I am here on Monday, Wednesday and Friday), you WILL get to see me for a treatment. In my 16 years of practice, I’ve inserted more than 1 million needles, but I have never been too busy to see anyone who needs a treatment. Sometimes, one treatment is all you need.

Our policy is this: If you need treatment, we will do everything possible to see you. You may have to wait a little bit (I’d need to see you by 6 p.m., and I do take a lunch break), but please call when you need a treatment! People say, “I thought my health problems/issues would go away.” And to that, I reply, “Where did you think it would go?” Inflammation – the basis of most pain – just doesn’t pick up and leave your body to go visit someone else’s. Inflammation interferes with your normal balance of Qi, Yin, and Blood. Balance is what gives us that internal harmony and creates the health you so rightly deserve. HEALTHY is the normal way to live – not PAIN.

As always, contact me so we can help you get healthy, be healthy and stay healthy.
