I never know what will come up in a clinic session. That’s the fun part of the job; not knowing. Not knowing and being attentive to what arises. It’s a cross between meditation and motorcycle repair. This episode is one of those rare solo shows. It’s fueled by some discussions that commonly occur in my clinic. In this short discussion I’ll cove ...…
 
Qi gong can look deceptively simple. From the outside it looks like stillness in motion, but what is unfolding on the inside is another matter entirely. Here in the West we are used to aggressive, outward motion while being distracted with TV shows, music or magazines at the gym. But the Chinese internal arts, while from the outside does not lo ...…
 
Pretty much every auntie and grandma in China is well versed in how to use a soup spoon to raise the therapeutic rash of guasha.

Chinese medicine, philosophy and martial arts all share a common root. The applications might be different, but they come back a grounding in Yin/Yang and Five Phases.

Taiwan is famous for it's high tech computer technology, bicycles, fragrant tofu, rivers of scooters, delicious street food, and of course, tea. Today's episode is a bit of a soundscape as we spend a portion of the afternoon drinking and discussing tea. Unlike your Western coffeeshop where you pop in for a beverage to go, or you grab a drink an ...…
 
A low reading on a bone density scan does not equal a Fosamax deficiency. Healthy bones aren’t hard, they are rigid living tissue, but they also have a certain amount of flexibility. They designed to bend and absorb shock and stress, and in fact one of the ways that bones become stronger is by challenging and surprising them. We have all heard ...…
 
Here in the west we are used to seeing acupuncture clinics in an urban setting, and it is often sought as an adjunctive therapy used combination with other modalities. In today's show we explore the use of acupuncture in the rural third world setting of Nepal and see how it is an essential and effective part of an integrated clinic that provide ...…
 
Cancer is a curious disease. It’s something we fight as an invader, but at its root it is a part of us. A part of us that is apart from us. We are in essence fighting against ourselves. In this conversation we meander through some perspectives that come from Chinese medicine. Along the way we discuss healing and curing; they are not the same th ...…
 
Most of us think of gender as something that is rigid and fixed. But in the transgender world the boundaries are more fluidic. In this episode we explore not just the particular health concerns, issues with access to the healthcare system, and challenges arising from discrimination and misunderstanding of the transgender community, but also tak ...…
 
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is not just an issue with a woman's ovaries, but can be a systemic condition that is closely tied with a variety of hormonal interactions in the body. The standard conventional treatment involves the use of synthetic hormone birth control pills, which can suppress some of the symptoms, but it does not get at t ...…
 
As with any profession, the educational requirements have shifted over the years. Today acupuncturists need to not only know East Asian medicine, but a fair amount of Western medicine as well.

Acupuncture is often used with good effect to treat psycho-emotive issues such as chronic anxiety and depression. And it is also helpful in the treatment of various psycho-emotive challenges that arise when someone is faced with their world being turned upside down by natural disaster. There is a particular method of treatment that helps people ...…
 
You can’t think you way out of thinking. And constant ruminative thought is often at the root of a variety of issues from anxiety and depression, to issues with anger, body image, and the limits we place on ourselves. Our physiology is not disconnected from our emotional lives or endocrinological systems, and so our states of mind are reflected ...…
 
Our guest when we recorded this show, had just completed a year working in the Wounded Warriors program at Walter Reed hospital. There she used acupuncture to treat veterans for PTSD, trauma brain injury and other chronic conditions that soldiers face after being injured in the line of duty. As with so many complex and difficult conditions, the ...…
 
Most men will have some issues with their prostate as they age. And the vast majority of men will die with some form of prostate cancer, but most will not die from it as most prostate cancers are slow. Figuring out which kind a person has and how to treat it is one of the emerging questions in men's health. Especially as the negative sides effe ...…
 
Acupuncture is a go-to treatment for musculo-skeletal pain and a commonly used modality for treating sports injuries. NFL stars, Olympic swimmers, basketball players and other top athletes increasingly turn to acupuncture to help with recovery from injury as evidenced by the occasional headline or picture that gives acupuncture another 15 minut ...…
 
Chinese medicine does not just have a 2500 year history of written and practical application of treating illness and disease. It also has an equally long tradition of cultivating health and well-being. Here in the West we say "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," so like the Chinese, we have this notion that a little attention to o ...…
 
Sugar addiction is something that usually gets laughed off with a wink and smile. And yet, as Gary Taubes says in his latest book, The Case Against Sugar, if the increasing rates of diabetes were related to a pathogen instead of a lifestyle, we would be in the midst of an all out "war" on the disease. In my acupuncture practice I've seen sugar ...…
 
Growing up we used to laugh about great-grandma's can of schmaltz that lived in the corner of the kitchen. It's taken the turn of more than a few decades to recognize the value of her peasant wisdom. And might have something to do with her making it into her 90's. In this episode we chew the fat on, well...., fat. After being exiled from the "h ...…
 
Some of us know from an early age we are cut out for medicine. Others never saw it coming; life in its wily wisdom throws us a curve ball, or in this case a bicycle accident. Our guest in this episode sought out acupuncture for a debilitating injury and ended up in a 12 year apprenticeship. Listen in as we explore how acupuncture doesn't just m ...…
 
We know that beauty is more than skin deep, but the truth is that skin is more than just skin deep. While it is easy to think that skin conditions are simply a problem of the exterior portion of our body, in reality dermotological problems are frequently the result of internal imbalances. In this episode we discuss the Chinese perspective on tr ...…
 
Acupuncture is well known in the Western world for its effectiveness in treating pain. In this episode we take a multilayered look at orthopedic acupuncture. While acupuncture is often considered to be an "energetic" medicine, our guest today takes us deep into the structural, neurological, chemical and functional aspects of why things hurt and ...…
 
We often think of germs, genetic abnormalities, poor lifestyle choices or plain bad luck as being the cause of illness and disease. We go looking for the "smoking gun," for the one thing that was the source of our troubles, but often the health issues we face arise out of a much more complex stew of causes and conditions. In this episode Greg B ...…
 
It's fairly common knowledge these days that acupuncture is helpful in promoting fertility and pregnancy.

Additionally, acupressu ...…
 
With American Olympic athletes suddenly sporting red and purple cupping marks, this ancient healing modality has set the Internet and traditional media ablaze with questions and surprise about those big circular marks.

Tai Chi is one of the more well known Chinese health practices that has made its way to the West. But there was a time when this gentle movement art was unknown outside of the Chinese world. In the 60's Cheng Man-Ching "The Professor" came from Taiwan to New York and began to do something unheard of; teach this ancient movement practice to West ...…
 
People often joke about being addicted to sugar. After all, how could something as cute and celebratory as a cupcake be bad? But it is not just the cupcake, or the sugary energy drink, it is that sugar has found its way into most foods and the combined effect on our metabolism has spawned an epidemic of obesity, diabetes and mood disorders. Wha ...…
 
There are a number of chronic degenerative eye problems that respond to acupuncture. In this episode, our guest discusses his experience using acupuncture to effectively treat macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt's and diabetic retinopathy. We discuss not only treating the eyes, but how the eyes are a part of the nervous system ...…
 
We often hear about acupuncture being used as an “alternative” when conventional biomedicine has failed to bring relief or resolution to a problem. So it seems a bit counterintuitive to think about acupuncture being used as part of first line care in an emergency room. And that is exactly where this episode’s guest practices— in the ER of a hos ...…
 
Contrary to the view of conventional medicine, women's menstrual cycles can be smoothed and regulated with natural methods. In this episode we look at how a woman's monthly cycle is a vital indicator of her overall health. Additionally, we see how the "periods" that accompany hormonal birth control are not periods in the true sense, and how sup ...…
 
We often hear about the so-called "mind/body connection," but have you noticed that the very phrase already assumes some kind of disconnect? In this episode we discuss over tea, Chinese medicine's view of how body and emotion are profoundly intertwined, what to do about worry, and how art helps with healing. Listen in for a wandering conversati ...…
 
In our electronically enhanced speed of silicon world we are easily lured into believing that faster is better, and motion is more productive than stillness. But, think of the cat crouched and ready to pounce, the coiled snake still with a spring load of potential, or the sprinter settled into her blocks. Indeed explosive movement can arise fro ...…
 
We often think that our hormones drive our emotions. And while there is some truth in that, it is equally true that our emotions, states of mind, and the stories that we tell our selves also have a profound impact on our hormones. In today's episode we look at how our thoughts and emotions are intimately connected with our endocrinological syst ...…
 
Westerners honestly come by their apprehension, discomfort and distrust of Chinese herbal medicine. After all, we didn't grow up with this stuff. Our mother's didn't feed us "Cinnamon and Peony Decoction" when we had a cold, we got tomato soup and grilled cheese. Our culture has us going to the drugstore instead of the herb market. Plus, why sh ...…
 
If you are thinking there has to be a better solution for the ails of childhood than antibiotics, anti-anxiety meds, ear tubes and amphetamines; you're right!Our guest in this episode has his feet firmly planted in both conventional biomedicine and Chinese medicine. Listen in for a conversation on how a shift in perspective can help to resolve ...…
 
Fertility issues are more than simply being able to get pregnant.

In this episode we explore how acupuncture, Chinese herbs, functional ...…
 
Today's show is a bit different from the usual dialogue between practitioners. Due to listener demand Michael Max offers up a solo show as a way of commemorating one year of Everyday Acupuncture Podcast. Listen in for his thoughts on how acupuncture works, why Chinese medicine practitioners look at your tongue, an overview of some of the common ...…
 
Sleep. It is one of those fundamental aspects of life that we take for granted, until we find ourselves writing and editing lists in our mind, or rehashing conversations at 3am. Sleep is a simple and natural process, except for when it's not. And then all our efforts at a slide into slumber only takes us further from the rest we seek. Our guest ...…
 
Sometimes we don't even know the rut we're in. Until a symptom, accident or diagnosis snaps us into into an unexpected moment of presence. We can chose the route of "fixing" our bodies, or engage a process of looking into "how we got here" and make more informed choices about the road to take from here. In this episode we explore how the choice ...…
 
An overnight treatment for back pain? Yes. But, as with so much in life, it's not a "one and done." It is process. A slight shift in habit and practice that allows your body to unwind postural kinks and find a space of ease and comfort. And from that neutral place of comfort help to promote the healing of stressed and damaged tissues. Today's g ...…
 
We tend to associate acupuncture with China. But auricular therapy was first developed in France, and then wandered its way back to the Middle Kingdom. And yes, there is a story to be told there. Listen in to find out about why the ear is one of the most powerful and effective acupuncture microsystems. And how it can be used to treat everything ...…
 
As with so many paths that open to us in life, our guest in this episode did not set out to make a deep study of Parkinson's. She stumbled into it by first helping a number patients who had foot injuries. And from there has delved deeply into neurobiology, brain chemistry, Chinese medicine, and psychology in her study of how long-term physiolog ...…
 
We rarely think of our feet as the amazing complex multi-boned platforms that allow us to walk upright. And in fact they are sensory organs with a deep affinity for balance, movement and listening to the environment. This is an encore interview with our guest Mary Bond, who joined us on EAP020 for a discussion of Presence and Movement. We'd pla ...…
 
We seek out medical practitioners because we want to know. There is a problem and we want it gone. Sometimes the process of discovery is not difficult, and health concerns are quickly resolved. But then there are those issues that linger for years, decades even. They defy the insurance reimbursed scans and lab tests. They might be "managed" by ...…
 
The Chinese medicine perspective on physiology connects and diverges from the conventional Western view like a blue highway meanders around an Interstate. Our guest on this episode speaks fluently from the perspectives of both modern biomedicine and the ancient art of Chinese medicine. What's more, in looking through the lens of embryological d ...…
 
Research is a funny thing. On one hand, most of us think of it as the most dry and boring stuff you could possibly read. On the other hand, we see it as the Holy Grail of truth when it comes to understanding the effectiveness of medical interventions. As with most things in life, the truth is much more complex and nuanced. In this episode our g ...…
 
The classics of Chinese medicine describe the digestive system in terms of what today we'd call a compost pile. Indeed we symbiotically live with, and are dependent on, a population of microbes that outnumbers our "human" cells. Our modern day war on the bacterial world is perhaps a bit misguided. And rather than trying to assassinate a few bad ...…
