Cholesterol, Blessing or Curse?

There is a quite a bit of attention paid to cholesterol with regards to health these days and for good reason. Poor cholesterol metabolism can be a good indicator of heart or coronary artery disease. It can also be a predictor of aging as I will explain later. Basically, there are two main components of the total cholesterol, the high density lipoprotein or HDL and the lowest density lipoprotein or LDL. There is also the triglyceride portion but if it is too high by itself that is a specific disease condition to be addressed individually. The total cholesterol number is […]

Congestive Heart Failure and Acupuncture (CHF)

Chinese medicine is a distinct system of pathology, diagnosis and treatment. As many know Chinese medicine has been practiced in some form for over 2000 years. What many do not realize is that within this 2000 years is a rich history of clinical observation on how to treat chronic disease states. Modern conventional medicine has over the last 150 years perfected the life-saving treatment of acute medical conditions, but the treatment of chronic conditions is considered a complex and ongoing body of work. In CHF or congestive heart failure the causes that lead to it are varied from ischemic heart […]

Low back pain

A Case of Four Different Painful Backs What is back pain and how does it occur? Back pain is a noticeable level of pain that can impede one’s usual daily routine or make rest uncomfortable.

Auto-Immunity and Chinese Herbal Medicine

By Dr. Frank Ervolino The ancient Chinese medical practitioners were very proficient at tracking case outcomes over time and this led to long clinical histories in treating various symptom pictures that are now identified in the west as named disorders. One of these would be called autoimmune disorders in Western pathology. It is interesting to note that the Chinese practitioners traditionally used herbs in 4 distinct therapeutic categories to treat the symptoms of autoimmune conditions. This includes the tonics which are strengthening herbs that can be taken without consequence infinitely. The toxin clearing herbs which lessen inflammatory mediators in the […]

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile dysfunction is mainly due to 2 physiological processes. The first is low levels of nitric oxide in the blood and the second is mainly due to glucose mediated nerve damage. The former is due to aging while the latter is due to diabetes mainly. While nothing can be done for nerve damage there’s a considerable amount that can be done to correct low levels of nitric oxide in the blood. Some of the common prescriptions for erectile dysfunction are designed to increase bloodflow which will push the blood against the blood vessel walls of the body and actually helped […]

Eczema in Children

At treasure Coast Community Acupuncture we often see very young children with classic eczema on the knees, elbows, chest and face. It amazes us how many doctors the parents have been to and how little progress they have made. Infant eczema has to do with programming the immune system of the child. It also has to do with gut flora but do not be fooled, one cannot change the gut flora easily with over the counter supplementation. Probiotics just do not work like that because one must also simultaneously change the environment the gut flora lives in and that is […]

Vegetarians and B-12-A mea culpa from me

I have been hammering vegetarians for years on how following a vegetarian diet could lead to a b-12 deficiency. I was especially emphatic about this with women because they menstruate and the loss of blood means this is more of an issue. Well, I decided to look into it and research now shows that if the average human takes a 500mcg supplement of B-12 they will absorb approximately 10mcg of that into their body which is 3 times the average intake of B-12. So it turns out that this is not an issue at all and for that I am […]

What is the Mission of Treasure Coast Community Acupuncture (TCCA)

There is a undercurrent in medicine these days that will profoundly change the way medicine is practiced in this country in the future. That undercurrent takes advantage of the power of the populace of this country which is powerful enough to even oppose large medical corporations which seem to be firmly in control of our medicine these days. The undercurrent I am talking about is transparency in medicine. What I mean by transparency is charging a patient what the procedure really costs by cutting out the middlemen, price gougers and layers of bureaucracy. Large shareholder owned medical corporations do not […]

Is RICE Dead? Why Ice Delays Recovery by Gabe Mirkin MD

March 20, 2014 by Gabe Mirkin, MD When I wrote my best-selling Sportsmedicine Book in 1978, I coined the term RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) for the treatment of athletic injuries (Little Brown and Co., page 94). Ice has been a standard treatment for injuries and sore muscles because it helps to relieve pain caused by injured tissue. Coaches have used my “RICE” guideline for decades, but now it appears that both Ice and complete Rest may delay healing, instead of helping. In a recent study, athletes were told to exercise so intensely that they developed severe muscle damage that […]
