Acupuncture can be a wonderful therapy for kids. Many people often ask what the youngest age is that I can treat. And the answer is, we can tailor treatment according to the child’s age, stage of development, and comfort with treatment. I have been fortunate enough to treat newborns, as well as toddlers, preschoolers, elementary-aged kids, preteens, and teens here in my acupuncture clinic as well as in different health settings.

Pollen and mold particles that may otherwise be too big to get into your lungs suddenly become broken up by a thunderstorm, allowing entrance into your lungs, which can lead to “thunderstorm asthma”. Thunderstorms’ electrical charge also makes tiny pollen and mold particles stickier, increasing the likelihood that they’ll cause trouble in your lungs once inhaled.

The phenomenon, known as “thunderstorm asthma,” isn’t so much an issue of people being allergic to rain. Instead, thunderstorms form the “perfect storm,” literally, of circumstances to increase breathing difficulties.

The entire spectrum of diabesity, including all of its complications–diabetes, elevated blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol–are simply downstream symptoms that result from problems with diet, lifestyle, and environmental toxins interacting with our unique genetic susceptibilities. And the reason these dietary and lifestyle factors lead to diabesity is because they create a condition known as insulin resistance.

Celiac disease differs from most other autoimmune diseases in one critical respect: the trigger, gluten, is known. And in most cases, removing gluten will turn off the autoimmune destruction in the gut. Around 10 percent of people with celiac disease, and possibly more, are thought to suffer neurological symptoms, ranging from headache and nerve pain, to ataxia and to epilepsy.

The endocrine system is responsible for hormonal functions in the body and produces thirty distinct hormones each of which has a very specific job to do. This system controls your physical growth, mood, hormone output, reproduction, mental functionality, and immune system. When not working properly you become more susceptible to disease and your ability to fight off infection is weakened. Endocrine glands and their functioning impacts every area of your health.

As a result, wrinkles develop.
