Acupuncture signals the body to release pain and stress-relieving hormones, including neurotransmitters (feel-good hormones). This explains why acupuncture is so commonly used by those with Anxiety and Mild to Moderate Depression.

Fluctuations are natural during changes in hormone levels in our lives; during puberty, pregnancy, nursing (breast-feeding), peri-menopause, menopause and even post-menopause. Often times stress worsens these hormonal changes, making the transition more difficult and stressful than it needs to be. Thyroid Disease or thyroid imbalance can worsen during sudden hormonal changes within the body. Acupuncture can help the body balance itself during this time, making for a more harmonious transition.

The Difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics is…

PRObiotics:

You probably already know that Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria in your gut. So, what the heck are Prebiotics, then?

 

PREbiotics:

What are Prebiotics?

PREbiotics are made up of substances like indigestible fiber and fermentable carbohydrates.

These fibers and carbs are broken down later on in digestion…

PRObiotics like sauerkraut, a fermented food, have a sort of symbiotic relationship with PREbiotics substances. They work together.

PREbiotics are not broken down by enzymes or gastric juices (stomach acids) and survive the journey through the GI tract, past the stomach, to the small intestine.

 

Function of PREbiotics:

Prebiotics are what FEED the Probiotics. They are like fertilizer.

Prebiotics are like fertilizer you use in your garden (or gut) to help everything grow, flourish and remain healthy.

 

Pros of Prebiotics: 

  • Less inflammation
  • Less hunger (fiber lasts longer)
  • Strengthens intestinal wall (good for leaky gut and auto immune disease)

Basically, the end result is that digestion works better with Prebiotics and Probiotics working together to improve digestion. Prebiotics along with Probiotics, help lower indigestion and inflammation. Obviously, this can help poor digestion, low energy and is good to know for anyone looking to eat a low inflammation diet.

 

How to Add Prebiotics to Diet:

Prebiotics are found in plants, some more than others. Include these often in the diet…

Why You Should Supplement with Magnesium:

7 Signs/ Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency:

  • Anxiety
  • Low Energy
  • Constipation
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Imbalanced Mood
  • Headaches/ Migraines
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

Aleesha D Acupuncture Treats Restless Legs Syndrome.

Patient Testimonial on RLS Here

 

Which Type of Magnesium Should I Take?

The type of magnesium depends on digestive symptoms…

Take Magnesium Citrate to help with Mood, Energy and Constipation. Magnesium Citrate is the magnesium type that is actually prescribed at the hospital to help get things moving again after surgery and the medications given that both can cause constipation. If taking for constipation, back off the dosage if diarrhea results. Too much Magnesium (just like too much vitamin C) can cause diarrhea. It can be a good way to measure the threshold of how much Magnesium (Citrate) to take.

Take Magnesium Glycinate to help with Mood and Energy if you already have regular, daily bowel movements. Taking the Citrate form when you are already having regular, daily bowel movements will probably result in loose stool and possibly diarrhea.

 

Why Can’t I Just Eat Magnesium-Rich Foods Instead?

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get enough Magnesium in our foods now days. This is because the soil which the normally Magnesium-rich foods grow in are deficient of Magnesium due to conventional fertilizers, over-tilling the soil, and not rotating crops appropriately. The roots of plants cannot pull up out of the ground what is just not there. So, the food is devoid of Magnesium.

 

Wouldn’t Low Magnesium Show in my Labs?

Less than 1% of Magnesium is found in the blood, so this is not the best way to test if you are getting enough Magnesium.

Checking the Signs and Symptoms above is a better way.

More Symptoms of Low Magnesium Here

 

Why is Magnesium So Important?

Helps with Vitamin D absorption (which you need to absorb Calcium)

Blood Pressure Regulation

Lower Cholesterol Serum &Triglycerides

Aids Digestion of Carbohydrates

Helps Metabolism (and Weight loss)

Overwhelmed? Can’t Add Anymore Supplements to Your Diet Routine? Still Want to Add Enzymes to Your Diet?…

No Worries.

Eat Enzyme-Rich Foods Instead!

 

Still Not Convinced You Need to Eat Enzyme-Rich Foods?

Why You Should be Eating Enzyme-Rich Foods:

  • Better Energy
  • Better Mood
  • Better Immunity
  • Relief of Digestive Upset
  • Enzyme Function Decreases with Age

 

Enzyme-Rich Foods:

Avocado

Bee pollen

Raw, unfiltered, local Honey

Miso soup (eat prior to meal)

Kefir and Sauerkraut are great fermented foods (be sure not pasteurized if purchasing).

Fruits like papaya and pineapple have naturally-occurring papain and bromelain enzymes in them.

(Bromelain is well-known for improving Arthritis pain by lowering inflammation).

 

Signs You May Need to Supplement with Digestive Enzymes

 

Enzyme-Rich Beverages: 

It may be easier for you to add enzyme-rich drinks to your diet. Just be careful of too much sugar, even in Kombucha.

(Some dentists recommend using a straw to protect the teeth’s enamel from the corrosive effects of carbonation).

Drinks like Wheat grass juice, Coconut water, Kefir and Kombucha are great ways to add live enzymes. Just be sure there are no added sugars other than naturally-occurring sugar.

 

What to Watch Out For in a Digestive Enzyme Product

 

A Note of Caution:

Start out slowly with Probiotics in supplement form as well as Probiotic-rich foods, as they can have a powerful effect on digestion. As always, check with your doctor before making a major change to your diet or starting any new supplement such as Probiotics or Enzymes.

Intro to Probiotics: Foods to Improve Your Digestion and Overall Health- Part 1

History of Probiotics 

Probiotics is nothing new. We have always eaten Probiotics in our diets throughout history.

We just didn’t hear the term “Probiotics” being thrown around before.

More health issues are popping up surrounding gut flora/ fauna imbalance as the root cause.

Many gut diseases and dis-eases stem from overused antibiotics.

—This is why some docs are hitting the pause button on prescribing antibiotics (think antibiotic-resistant bugs).

 

Therefore, more and more people find the need to seek out probiotics in order to obtain healthy digestion, naturally.

 

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are alive and in the form of live yeasts or bacteria- or both live yeast and live bacteria, as Kombucha is.

Learn the Difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics Here

Traditions of Fermented Foods 

All traditions used fermented foods out of need (no refrigeration or pasteurization was available) which served as natural probiotics.

No pills were necessary.

Some of these food processing types (natural  type processing here)

include pickling with lactic acid (German sauerkraut or Korean kimchi),

baking yeast (sourdough),

bacterial fermentation of milks (yogurt or kefir),

and other fermented drinks (kombucha).

 

The “Good Stuff” in Enzyme-rich Probiotic Foods/ Drinks:

(a.k.a., What’s In it for Me?):

  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Improve Energy
  • Improve Mood
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Fights Allergies
  • Healthier Skin
  • Absorb more nutrients from food
  • Improve Diarrhea or Constipation
  • Stimulates Immunity*

*Increases T-cells which stimulates immune system

 

How Can You Improve Imbalanced Skin?

 

How Fermentation Works

Fermentation in food helps break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates

in order for our digestive system to be able to better handle the food

in order to turn it into energy.

 

We can let enzymes in foods do some of the work-

 

(Better option to save precious energy on digestion when our reserves run low)

due to…immune issues, stress or being just plain run-down.

Many of us are over-working while under-sleeping

(that is double-dipping into precious energy reserve)!

 

Examples of Fermented Food & Drinks:

  • Kefir
  • Kimchi
  • Kombucha
  • Miso soup
  • Sauerkraut
  • Sourdough
  • Yogurt

An example of a fermented food containing enzymes is a Japanese soup.

“Miso” soup is made from fermented soy (the only type of soy you should be eating).

Why not eat non-fermented soy?–because soy is an endocrine disrupter and can affect hormones and ultimately, even fertility.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) has concluded soy to be an endocrine disrupter, particularly in children whose bodies are still developing.

One of the ways we can see the disruption of hormones from our disruptive foods is what some have called, “man boobs.” (We may need another post to dive deeper into this)…

 

Why worry about the health of your digestion?

Isn’t that just for old people and people with debilitating disease? No, a balanced digestion can help you avoid aging your body and ending up with disease and dis-ease. If having more energy and looking and feeling better are important to you, then getting your digestion into balance is for you! Feel better, Move forward.

 

What You Can Do?

You can help your gut by eating probiotic foods rich in enzymes. This can serve to improve your energy, mood and overall well-being.

Learn to make:

  • Your own probiotic drinks like Kombucha or Kefir
  • Your own pickled foods like Sauerkraut or Kimchi
  • Your own sourdough bread (try gluten-free version)

Avoid:

  • Stress
  • Refined sugars
  • Processed foods (including fast food)

Stress, refined sugar and overly-processed, packaged foods can impair your body’s ability to create enzymes that destroy the bad bacteria in the gut.

Digestive Enzymes

Some people opt to take Digestive enzymes in a pill form (instead of enzyme-rich fermented foods) to help break down all three macros; fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Why Try Acupuncture for Poor Mood and Low Energy?

Acupuncture Helps Ease Mild to Moderate Depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.).

 

Is Your Depression Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

 

How Acupuncture Helps Depression

Acupuncture works under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and looks at and treats Depression differently than Western Medicine does. Acupuncture is good at helping patients with mild to moderate depression.

 

What is the Science behind How Acupuncture Helps Pain and Depression?-

Acupuncture decreases pain by inciting the body to release specific endorphins which relieve pain, acupuncture increases Qi and blood (circulation) to the affected area and decreases inflammation in the body (inflammation causes pain and chronic inflammation causes disease).

Acupuncture helps with depression by:

  • Acupuncture releases endorphins (feel-good hormones)
  • Acupuncture increases circulation
  • Acupuncture lowers inflammation

 

Research on Acupuncture for Depression:

In 2010 The Journal of Affective Disorders published on 207 clinical studies on the effectiveness of acupuncture treating depressive disorders. The efficacy of acupuncture was found to be comparable to antidepressants alone in the improvement of clinical response and with alleviating symptom severity of Major Depressive Disorder. 

Adverse reactions to acupuncture treatment was also significantly lower than that of antidepressants!

 

COVID-19 and Vitamin D Deficiency

 

What YOU Can do for Depression:

Have Your Doctor Check Your Labs for:

  • Get Your Vitamin D3 level screened in Labs!!
  • Get Your Thyroid screened
  • Get Your Vitamin B level screened
  • Get Your Iron level screened
  • Support Group
  • Breathe
  • Exercise (30 minutes daily)
  • Sleep (bad sleep may increase risk of Dementia)

(Think of vitamin “D” as the “D” in “DEPRESSION)!

90% of us- Especially in the northern area of MN, where we do not get enough sun for enough vitamin D…I tell my patients that even if they were to lie outside in the sun naked all day long, they would still not get enough vitamin D without supplementing during the winter!

You can buy your vitamin d here, too.

–Ask your doctor to check your blood level in your labs for vitamin d deficiency every year when you get your annual physical.

 

Thyroid/ Iron/ B vitamin Deficiency…

Low thyroid level, Iron or deficient B vitamin can cause fatigue and low mood. Ask your doctor to check this if you feel low mood and energy.

 

Stay Social!…

Get a support group of friends, family and care providers you can trust to have your best interest in mind.

We do not have to go it alone.

Many 0f us keep trying to do everything ourselves without asking for help. This does not work. Reach out to your peeps.

We are social creatures.

 

Breathe. Take your time. Try not to change too many major things in life at once when you are feeling overwhelmed.

Sleep. Be sure to get enough. Ramifications of not enough sleep over a long period of time can really affect your health in a negative way. Sleep is when the plaque that causes dementia is cleaned from our brain. I think of it as Pacman going in to keep us healthy. Get some sleep!

Exercise every day. 20-30 minutes, especially in nature can do wonders for the body and mind.

Low Impact Exercises:

  • Brisk Walking
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Chi Gong (Qi gong)

Chi gong (Qi gong) is a form of Tai Chi (Tai Qi), under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

TCM Acupuncture Treats More than Your Symptoms

TCM acupuncture works to find out the root cause of disease and dis-ease in order to treat and relieve the pain or issue and help prevent it from returning. Acupuncture helps your body to balance itself and remain in balance.

Western Medicine often only treats the branch of the disease, leaving the root to further disease. Shining a dull leaf will not resolve the problem long-term if there is disease within the root.

Another words, TCM treats more than just the symptoms, it also treats the cause.

How Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture Treats Disease versus Western Medicine

Main differences between TCM Acupuncture and Western Medicine: 

TCM Acupuncture Treats More than Your Symptom

Treating the Branch (Symptom) vs the Root (Cause)

TCM acupuncture is known for treating chronic pain and issues that have been lingering for a long time. Often acupuncture is something we seek out after we have tried all other options. This is probably due to not really buying into the idea that acupuncture could actually work on something real, like severe pain or for hormonal imbalance, as with infertility. I thought the same way before I FINALLY tried it. (See My Story Here) TCM Acupuncture works to find out the root cause of disease and dis-ease in order to treat and resolve the pain or issue and – help prevent it from returning.

Western Medicine often only treats the branch of the disease, instead of also treating the root, where the disease started. Shining a dull leaf on a plant or tree will not resolve the problem long-term if there is disease within the root.  The root cause must be treated in order to treat the whole plant. It is the same with the human body.

Another words, TCM acupuncture treats more than just the symptoms, it also treats the cause of those symptoms.

Of course, there are times when the marvels of modern Western Medicine are necessary and appropriate to use over acupuncture or other medical treatments, i.e., Cancer, emergency surgery, life-saving medications and fixing major structural issues like broken bones and torn tendons, to name just a few.

Acupuncture does not treat such things as Cancer and should never claim to. However, acupuncture is good for many of these ailments, once the patient is in a healing stage. For instance, acupuncture is very good at helping relieve common issues in patients due to the effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment for Cancer. Many patients come to Aleesha D Acupuncture for relief after chemotherapy/ radiation Cancer treatment appointments in order to feel better.

Acupuncture Relieves Nausea, Vomit and Low Energy after Chemotherapy Cancer Treatment

 

Treatment Aimed at Prevention vs the “Wait and See” until Symptoms Manifest into Disease:

TCM acupuncture aims for prevention. It is concerned with preventing the issue from recurring or worsening. TCM acupuncture treats specific TCM disease patterns (according to how an individual patient presents) with the aim of helping the body regain balance in order to stop the disease or dis-ease before it progresses into something worse, or before it progresses into an actual diagnosed disease (where there once was no diagnosis).

Western Medicine operates within a different medical paradigm. This is why Western Medicine often can only treat the individual after a disease has been diagnosed. Then medications, surgeries or other therapies can be recommended, taken and monitored-sometimes for life, i.e., thryoid medications!

This is common with patients who complain to doctors (sometimes for years) of chronic signs and symptoms such as low energy, fatigue, constipation, anxiety, depression, low libido, dry skin and cold hands and feet. At first these individuals are told there is nothing showing up in their labs in regard to imbalances (such as thyroid)…only to be told years later, once the labs finally show the imbalance as a thyroid deficiency or excess (once the imbalance progressed enough to show up on the tests). Unfortunately, by this time the signs and symptoms have been allowed to progress to the state of disease, i.e., Thyroid Disease such as Auto Immune Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism and Auto Immune Grave’s Disease.

It is interesting that in ancient China, doctors were only paid for prevention of disease; they were not paid if they did not prevent disease in their patients because they did not do their job.

Thyroid, Auto Immune Issues and Acupuncture

Your licensed acupuncturist is trained in TCM Food Therapy and may go over your diet and other lifestyle factors, and may make recommendations in order to help with issues such as infertility, insomnia, anxiety and sub-clinical (symptoms of low thyroid not showing in labs) thyroid deficiency. Acupuncture aims to help your body balance itself, in order to avoid disease and dis-ease.

 

Acupuncture for Anxiety

TCM acupuncture treats the whole person. This is why acupuncturists ask so many seemingly un-related questions. Your acupuncturist is going to ask about your digestion, diet, exercise, mood, menstrual cycle (if you are female), etc. The answers to these questions are each like a puzzle piece. These puzzle pieces make up a picture of you, the individual. This information allows them to treat you according to fitting within TCM Disease patterns, which are different than Western Medicine disease.

This also explains how TCM acupuncture can treat an individual under a TCM disease pattern even without a Western diagnosis, when Western medicine is at a loss as to how to define or treat certain issues or Syndromes, i.e., Fertility, Fibromyalgia, SIBO, Thyroid issues, Endometriosis and Insomnia.

What Acupuncture is Good at Treating

Acupuncture is good at treating pain and promoting functional issues within the body; digestion issues, hormonal imbalances, range of motion issues and of course, pain due to almost any root cause. Acupuncture can help with Depression when it is mild to moderate and is good for Anxiety. This is because it helps move stuck “Qi” or energy that has turned into stagnation in the body, commonly referred to as “Liver Qi Stagnation” with depression-like issues.

When Western Medicine is Needed

Acupuncture is not suitable for fixing structural issues; broken bones, torn or severed nerves, ligaments or tendons. Obviously there is a time and place for everything, including appropriate medical care for each situation. Once the tendon, bone or ligament is repaired, however acupuncture can be a good modality to help the effected area of the body to heal more quickly. An example of this is after knee, hip or shoulder surgery. Acupuncture is so common after surgeries that many hospitals are providing this option to their post-op patients to help lower the pain and inflammation, especially as they taper from pain medications.

Many patients come to Aleesha D Acupuncture in Anoka after hip surgery, knee surgery, shoulder surgery and back surgery to help relieve inflammation, swelling and pain, as well as getting back on their feet more quickly.
