New American College of Physicians Guideline for Back Pain

According to the new guideline, the American College of Physicians now states that people suffering from back pain should try non-pharmacological therapies first. That means opioids, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants should not be the first line treatments. Moreover, the physicians interviewed say that steroid injections, acetaminophen, and MRI scans are not helpful at all. This is a direct decision to counter the growing opioid epidemic and begin a new way of thinking about pain management.

Self Care in the New year

Self Care, 2017, Acupuncture, New Year Resolutions, Goals

As 2016 comes to a close, we look forward to a clean slate and new potentials

Self Care, 2017, Acupuncture, New Year Resolutions, Goals

Many people enjoy keeping with the tradition of making New Year Resolutions. These yearly resolutions are wonderful because they allow us to be mindful of the gifts of both time and self-agency. The transition encourages us to re-assess our lives, be grateful for what we have, and then attempt to improve upon our shortcomings to better ourselves.

Unfortunately, many get into the new year almost expecting to fail at their goals. Fortunately, acupuncture is on your side when it comes to self care in 2017! There are several ways acupuncture supports your new year goals no matter what they might be. For example, the most common new year resolutions are some variations of losing weight or getting fit, eating healthier, decreasing stress or increasing mindfulness, and quitting smoking. Acupuncture can help support all of these goals and more.

If you’d like a recipe from scratch, we have included one below. Feel free to use it as a guideline and adjust to your own desired taste with other herbs.
