The most important thing you can do to keep your body healthy and strong is to live from the heart...a full, vibrant life comes from a happy heart.

But life is stressful!

Having to work, care for our families, and deal with the bureaucracy of our lives means that happiness is often considered secondary.

Because your mind and your body are intertwined and interdependent on one another, how you deal with that stress is what makes all the difference in your physical health. This is where the kidneys come in.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine the kidneys are referred to as the batteries of the body.  Sitting on top of your kidneys are two small glands, the adrenal glands, whose job it is to pump out hormones.

The Role of Cortisol and Adrenaline

Two of these hormones that we often hear about are called cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones effect the functioning of your entire body, and play a major role in your blood sugar levels, energy, sexual responsiveness, and even blood pressure.

When you are anxious, frustrated, stressed or angry, your adrenals excrete cortisol and adrenaline, thus kicking those little glands into "high-gear" -- do this often enough and they get become exhausted, just like the rest of your body.

When stress-induced negativity and unhappiness dampen your spirit, your vital energy is also being drained.

You then wonder why you feel so tired and irritable, or get depressed and have trouble sleeping, gain weight or have food cravings.

It’s all because these little glands can no longer do their job properly.  This in turn causes your other body systems to become stressed and more functions to break down — this is the disease process.

From a happy heart a healthy body will follow.

"The Heart holds the office of Lord and Sovereign. The radiance of the spirits stems from it." – The Su Wen

All disease comes from the heart, the emotional pivot in Chinese Medicine.   This is why happy people rarely get sick and generally live long lives.

Are you ready to take that next step towards better health and well-being?

As a fully certified Doctor of Chinese Medicine, I will diagnose and treat your physical body, with special attention to enhancing your energy and well-being.

Equally important is that I will be spending time with YOU, learning about YOU (not just your disease) and I will be coaching you through a process of personal growth toward whole-person health and happiness.
