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 […]

Remarkable Recovery from Hip Pain

78 year old woman comes into the clinic with chronic hip pain. She is also hard of hearing. She has been to a Chiropractor for a year and seen an orthopedist who prescribed pain control injections and sent her to physical therapy. So she has pursued the proper therapeutic modalities that one should in this case, but none of them have been effective over the long term. We used a protocol Dr. Frank Ervolino developed that used 2 local needles and 4 distal needles plus some microcurrent. The balance of the treatment was to reduce stress brought on by the […]

Acupuncture for PTSD

Acupuncture for PTSD

The use of acupuncture is an effective treatment in active-duty service members and can help entice reluctant patients to participate in conventional psychotherapies, according to experts in posttraumatic stress disorder. “By expanding the repertoire of therapeutic options, the use of complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture in the treatment of PTSD provides an element of patient engagement not possible with traditional therapies alone,” Navy Capt. Robert L. Koffman, MD, MPH, department chief for clinical operations at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, Md., said in an interview. In a new article published in Psychiatric Annals, titled “Come […]

New Study Finds Stomach and Heart Point Specificity

New Study Finds Stomach and Heart Point Specificity

A new study confirms that acupuncture’s medical benefits are acupuncture point specific for its effective actions on the stomach, intestines and heart. Researchers discovered that needling acupuncture point CV12 increases HRV, heart rate variability, an important ability of the human heart to vary its rate in reaction to bodily demands. Needling CV12 did not affect electrogastrogram signals, a measure of electric signals in the stomach and intestines. The converse is true of needling acupuncture point UB32. Applying an acupuncture needle to this point affects electrogastrogram readings but does not affect HRV. Acupuncture has point specific medical actions. AcupunctureThis is the […]

Acupuncture can help you quit smoking

Acupuncture can help you quit smoking

Originally published at http://www.doctoroz.com By Jamie Starkey, LAc Over the weekend, I found myself at a social gathering in which there was a multitude of smokers. Typically, smokers congregate outside to light up, incredibly brave as they endure the bone-chilling temperatures that Clevelanders have all come to love. But at this social gathering, there was no need to step outside for a smoke, certainly not when the host was lighting up indoors as well! Much to my dismay, I found myself dodging the secondhand smoke, but to no avail. I spent the majority of my time outside in the winter […]

A Chinese Art, in the Context of the West

A Chinese Art, in the Context of the West

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been in use for thousands of years. At your first evaluation, a practitioner will examine your tongue for clues like cracks and discolorations, take your pulse and ask numerous questions to determine what might be causing your symptoms. The practitioner will then insert fine needles at specific points to unblock the flow of qi, or energy, in your body. Sound like hocus pocus? Many Western doctors think not. ”Acupuncture is a system of correspondences,” said Vitaly Napadow, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, who conducts research on how acupuncture affects the […]
