1.  EAT SOMETHING.   Don’t come on an empty stomach. No need to guzzle down a huge T-Bone, but a light meal is perfect. Once those endorphins start pumping, it will be helpful to have some sustenance in your belly. Otherwise, you may feel like you’ve had one too many glasses of champagne. I know that may sound appealing to some, but remember- you have to drive home afterwards. As much as we love to hear our patients say they wish they could hang around and have a nap or a good meditation sesh when their acupuncture treatment is finished, this is not the Hilton.

 

 

2. DO NOT COME UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS.  You don’t need to!   Do your best to come au naturel. Let the acupuncture do it’s thing and you’ll be feelin’ just fine!   Licensed Acupuncturist Warning: Having acupuncture under the influence of recreational drugs confuses your qi and may not have the desired effect on your body, mind and spirit. Don’t waste your time or your money

 

3.  WEAR LOOS...

So my daughter’s cold has taken residence in my nostrils. It’s not pretty –thankful for the Puffs with lotion or I think my nose would be rubbed clear off my face by now.

 

Time to steep some Kick a Germ Juice!

 

 

Kick a Germ Juice:

 

This brew will make you sweat and bolster your immune system to help fight off a cold. I know, I know, the garlic and cayenne may sound gross in tea. But give it a try, it actually tastes fine and you can just feel the goodness happening. It’s like somehow your taste buds know this is just what you need at the moment.

 

Here’s the recipe:

Fresh Squeezed Juice of One Lemon

1 tsp of chopped fresh garlic

1 tsp of chopped fresh ginger

dash of cayenne pepper

honey (preferably local, raw)

 

Place ingredients in a large coffee mug. Pour boiling water over ingredients. Steep for 10 minutes. You can strain if desired. I prefer to leave all the stuff in the bottom of my mug, refill and get a few rounds out of it. Add raw honey to taste.

 

My ritual is to take that first sip and rai...
