Cold-Fighting Recipe

I’ve been seeing a lot of patients with annoying cold symptoms lately, probably due to all these rapidly shifting weather patterns. At the first sign of a cold, I whip up a batch of this special recipe and it works like magic: I’ll sweat a little, go to bed, and wake up feeling completely healthy.

  • Ginger, sliced thin
  • honey
  • lemon
  • clove
  • cinnamon
  • cayenne ...

Happify

Since we use our iPhones for seemingly everything these days, why not utilize them to boost our moods?

We acupuncturists see issues of pain, tension, stiffness, and many other forms of dysfunction as blood and energy getting “stuck” within the body. Get things unstuck, blood and energy flow smoothly, and healing begins. Moxa’s true ...

One Unlucky Troll

When I was perhaps five or six, my mother and I were shopping at a local bargain store called Railroad Savage (my West Haven friends will remember it well). As we were leaving, I begged my mother to let me invest 25 cents on a troll doll impaled on a pencil. If you are heading into your 40s, as I am, you probably recall collecting these ugly little things. They were right up there in popularity with Garbage Pail Kids ...
