One day in March, 2002, I was at home with my two sons, aged 3 and 8. Suddenly, I was in extreme agony with pain in my back … or my side …

 

Editor´s Note: Francis shares his personal experience with kidney stones and how Homeopathy helped him get through the crisis. He used his knowledge and expertise to find a remedy that specifically targeted the formation of stones. In general, however, he advises consulting a homeopath who will find your constitutional remedy to address any issues you might have with stones, nodules or calcifications.

 

Homeopathy


by Judy Hinojosa-Sinks, NMD

The body is composed of water, protein, minerals, and fat. A two-component model of body composition divides the body into a fat component and fat-free component. Body fat is the most variable constituent of the body. The total amount of body fat consists of essential fat and storage fat. Fat in the marrow of bones, in the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys, intestines, muscles, and lipid-rich tissues throughout the central nervous system is called essential fat, whereas fat that accumulates in adipose tissue is called storage fat.

 

Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Instead of putting so much a focus on weight alone, as so many do, how about thinking about what makes up that weight, for that might make the real difference in how we feel and function. Dr. Hinojosa-Sinks describes ways we can figure out what our body composition is. One such way she discusses is a machine she uses in her office that performs bioelectric impedance analysis to give us these measurements.

Massage & Bodywork


by Andres Vergara, LAc, MAc & Michele Collins, RH (AHG), MPH

In Chinese medicine, the spleen and kidneys play an important role in metabolism. We are not referring to the literal and anatomical kidneys and spleens alone. These organs are actually the gross manifestations, two of five of the essential processes or functions our whole selves cycle through on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The spleen represents the function of transformation and digestion and it, working in partnership with the pancreas and stomach, are responsible for converting food and water into fuel and energy that the body can use to sustain itself...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is a great article that explains metabolism and weight gain from a Chinese Medicine perspective. The functions of different organ systems are discussed, along with herb and food recommendations to nourish and balance the body.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


 

Editor's Note: This is a great news segment on veterinary acupuncture. It describes its use for not only pain control, but for allergies, liver and kidney disease, and many other conditions. Over 1/3 of veterinarians either practice or recommend traditional Chinese medicine to their patients. Amazing!
