I'm currently working on an article for Darou Wellness right now and though its still in the draft stages, I hope to have it posted as the Weekly Feature for the period of March 20, 2019.
I was asked to present 5-10 health tips about something related to health, as told from the perspective of an Acupuncturist. I decided to do a very personal article about the process of going through an elimination diet during the springtime, which on the Traditional Chinese Medicine seasonal calendar, corresponds to the time that the Liver and Gallbladder organs are more active and hence, more able to respond more effectively to a detox.
I didn't want to just randomly list stuff. That would be boring and way less engaging. So I'm on a limb as I write this with the sole purpose of just bringing the lens to your eye level so you can get a feel for what I am still going through. It hasn't been published on Darou Wellness but I wanted to post it here because I am really - no actu...
Thought I would post this in one of the work places in Toronto that I can be found in during the week: Simple Cures at Toronto’s iconic Beaches Community. For anyone who wants to start IVF and use acupuncture to assist you on your pregnancy journey, this may be a great place to start!
As a Registered Acupuncturist, one of the most common things I am asked is whether acupuncture can be used to assist somebody going through IVF. Yes it can!

We’d love to provide you with an offer for an initial series of SIX one-hour acupuncture consultations and treatments (for what we would normally charge for 45-...
I often get asked this question a lot and it’s funny that it never occurred to me to write a post about this. I guess it’s because most of the time, I find myself answering this in the context of an acupuncture treatment and I am able to show the patient just how “teenie tiny” the needle actually is in the clinic.
Out here in the outer space realms of the internet though, showing people what a needle looks like can pose a few challenges, especially when said R.Ac is somewhat photography-challenged. So, I decided to do a simple (yes, very rudimentarily simple) comparison chart of different thicknesses of everyday objects vs a humble acupuncture needle.
My aim? To reassure you that acupuncture doesn’t feel like:
And instead, feels more like:
I completely understand that our evolutionary genetic heritage has armed us somewhat with a very real and self-preserving fear of sharp and pointy objects. However, this proudly put together chart should give some of the biggest needle-phones some...
