When people arrive at an addiction treatment center, they typically don’t want to be there. They’re agitated and apprehensive, and they doubt whether they even have a problem, especially one that is as bad as their families, employers or the courts believe...


Editor's Note: This is an excellent article explaining five valuable complementary and alternative therapies for people recovering from addictions. Acupuncture, particularly ear acupuncture, is used to combat cravings, reduce stress and withdrawal symptoms, and restores whole body balance. I love how this section showcases research studies and statistics to confirm acupuncture's efficacy for addiction treatments. So fantastic!

As an acupuncturist, I do a lot of myth debunking. It’s understandable. After all, acupuncture speaks an entirely different language from the one through which most Westerners learned to see the world. However, with acupuncture continuing to grow in popularity and gain acceptance by mainstream medicine, it’s important to clarify a few myths and misconceptions that have a strong hold on our collective psyche...


Editor's Note: This is a fun, easy-to-grasp article that explains five common acupuncture myths. As an acupuncturist myself, I too spend a lot of time explaining how acupuncture feels, what it does, and if it works.

I am humbled every day by the power of healing using the integrative medicine approach.  The arthritic patients I see benefit tremendously by using less invasive (and less expensive), customized treatment programs.  One great example is my dear client Margaret and her wonderful King Charles Cavalier, Ariel, who  suffers from one of the worst cases of hip and elbow dysplasia I've ever seen. If you were to see Ariel run in to our practice to get her monthly acupuncture you would think that I am exaggerating! 


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: While they are hard to find, integrative veterinarians provide the widest variety of healthcare options. Here's Ariel's story.
