Collagen Powder for Healthier Skin, Digestion and Joints!

Have you heard a lot of buzz lately about collagen? Are You Looking for something easy to take that can help you feel better and look better, too? Many patients rave about how they can tell a difference in the fullness of their face after taking collagen.

How do you build Collagen in your body?

Collagen hydrolysate powder can help build collagen from the “inside-out.” This tasteless powder mixes into warm water easily. It works the same as the gelatinous substance found in your homemade chicken stock-except it is even more easily digestible!

Where does Collagen Build in your Body?

Taking collagen as a supplement goes to work in your joints and the infrastructure of collagen building in the face, as in filling out the face for wrinkle prevention. Think of collagen as a matrix of built-up netting. This is what makes a baby’s face so full and kissable! It is also one of the easiest proteins to digest. For easiest assimilation in the gut, take the “hydrolysate” powder form. This is key to those of us who have less than ideal digestive systems for a host of reasons, such as auto-immune issues like Hoshimoto’s Hypothryoidism.

Aleesha D Acupuncture now carries Collagen hydrolysate powder by Great Lakes brand, one of the most top-rated and least inexpensive of the collagens on the market. It is grass-fed and pasture-raised. Stop by and pick up a canister or on-the-go packets for travel. Aleesha never travels without it!

Acupuncture Helps You Get Out of Fight or Flight and back into Rest and Digest (where you belong most of the time).

As You already know, spending too much time in Fight or Flight mode is bad for your health. It has its place and serves you well in emergencies. 

However, perceived emergencies can drag on longer when life gets stressful. It can become harmful to your health once this becomes the norm and lasts for too long. Don’t stay in Fight or Flight too long!

Acupuncture actually helps You by helping balance your body. It does this by helping the Nervous System switch from the Sympathetic “Fight or Flight/ Stress” mode, back to the Parasympathetic “Rest and Digest” mode. 

This is why most people who get acupuncture report feeling a euphoric feeling after treatments. Some compare the feeling to having a glass of wine or being in a meditative state or just plain feeling more “relaxed” and at ease.

If you are feeling stress and Anxiety, give acupuncture a try! What have you got to lose but stress?

Heal Scars Faster with Acupuncture!

Have a scar that is bothersome to you? Maybe your scar has grown in a bumpy, un-even pattern.

Perhaps you have a lack of sensitivity in the scar tissue area or sensation of cold in the area.

Scar Symptoms Acupuncture Treats:

Numbness, itching, tingling or sensation of heat or cold may be symptoms that acupuncture can help when it comes to scar healing.

  • Raised
  • Itching
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Heat/ Cold Sensation
  • Faster Healing Time

Scars tend to respond well to acupuncture treatment and the tissue around it tends to heal and fade, faster!

How Many Acupuncture Scar Treatments are needed:

Usually you can expect to see and feel improvement in scar tissue within 6-12 Treatments, with frequency of treatments 1-2 times per week. Individual results may vary due to the health of the individual and how chronic (how long since the scar was formed).

 

Contraindications of Scar Treating with Acupuncture:

  • Any scar that is less than 4-6 weeks old
  • Diabetes
  • Frail or Weak individuals

Why Do You Have to Wait So Long To Treat Scars?

It is best to wait about 6 weeks after injury or surgery to allow the scar a chance to build it’s matrix of tissue. This is especially important with large area scars, such as over the abdominal area.

 

Examples of Scars Treated at Aleesha D Acupuncture:

  • C-section abdominal scars
  • Knee surgery scars
  • Older, bothersome scars

Scars, such as C-section scars fade in appearance more quickly with acupuncture treatment. The sensation of feeling around the scar area improves and range of motion can also improve in the area for increased mobility. This is a real concern for most of our patients who wish to remain as active as possible. As with anything, individual results may vary. Factors which may increase an individual’s skin healing time may include; age, weight, genetics, medical history, and overall health of the individual. Weight can increase wound healing time as there is typically less oxygenation within the tissue due to cardiovascular issues. 

What You Can Do to Help Scars Heal:

  • Keep it Clean
  • Keep it Moist
  • Avoid Smoking
  • Eat Nutritious Food & Hydrate
  • Avoid Drinking Alcohol & Caffeine
  • Follow Doctor’s advice on care for stitches
  • For c-sections: Wait 3 months before exercise like plank to avoid straining the pelvic floor muscles

Avoid smoking. Smoking can slow down healing. This is why one must stop smoking for two weeks before plastic surgery! 

Avoid drinking. Drinking Alcohol and Caffeine dehydrates the body and this is the opposite of what we are trying to do. 

Eat good, quality food while you are trying to heal-this goes for anytime you are asking your body to do something extra! Good, quality whole-foods Proteins like poultry, fish, eggs and a good, quality collagen protein powder are good examples.

Collagen powder is another easy way to add more protein that is also easy to digest. Aleesha D Acupuncture carries the Great Lakes brand Collagen Hydrolysate which is easier to digest and does not turn to gel. This is great for collagen in the skin along with acupuncture cosmetic and acupuncture scar treatment. It easily melts into warm liquid and has the same benefits as an organic, homemade bone broth. I take it every morning and night as I no longer take time to make homemade bone stock from scratch.

Low Thyroid? Hashimoto’s?…Not sure? …

Did you know that 90% of the time Low Thyroid is Hashimoto’s?

Did you know Hashimoto’s is considered an Auto-Immune Thyroid Disease?

Before you give up on ever having enough energy again, losing weight, not feeling cold all the time, growing back your now thinning hair, or thinking you are stuck with this “Brain fog” that keeps you from being on top of your game, ask yourself…

–What Can I Do?– 

As overwhelming as it seems, there is actually a lot you can do!

With some lifestyle changes and healing modalities like Acupuncture, your body will slowly heal itself.

You may or may not have to take Thyroid medication.

Either way, cleaning up your lifestyle will give your body and brain the correct “soil” to start to heal

–and you will slowly start to feel better.

How can I Feel Better?–

  • Energy starts to improve and you start feeling like getting out of bed more easily (Better Motivation)
  • Brain fog starts to clear away like parting clouds (Better Mental focus)
  • Mood Lifts (Less Anxiety & Depression)!
  • Weight Loss/ Maintenance (Balanced Metabolism)
  • Libido (healthy sex life)
  • Joint pain improves(Pain Relief)
  • Cold Intolerance (Improve Circulation)
  • Digestion cleans up (Less constipation or diarrhea)
  • Skin rashes & Dry skin Improves (Clearer skin/ Dry Skin Relief)
  • Hair/scalp become healthier again (No more thinning hair) and eyebrows can start to fill-in again-slowly!

 

–What Can I Work on (Lifestyle)?–

Diet / Acupuncture and other healing modalities/ Movement/ Sleep…

 

ACUPUNCTURE: When Acupuncture is Good for Your Thyroid

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that acupuncture can be used to treat thyroid disease.

 

DIET: How can we choose to eat healthy foods that support a low thyroid when the information out there is always changing and there are so many telling us to eat Paleo! or Eat Vegetarian! or Eat Vegan! or Eat Keto!…

Well, I find it easier to think of foods in terms of…

LOW INFLAMMATION DIET. 

So, why eat a Low Inflammation Diet?… Well, as you know Disease is caused by Inflammation.

So what is Inflammation, really?…Well, think of it as a fire. The fire does not go away. It continues to burn…

It becomes chronic…

This chronic,burning inflammation or fire can manifest as skin irritations or with joint pain…Especially if you have been diagnosed with Thyroid Disease or really, any disease. Even when the fire is kept low by good lifestyle, it can continue to smolder. It is our job to keep it down and not add fuel to the fire with high inflammation foods or other stressors which can trigger stress responses in the body, and affect the thyroid. 

Low Inflammation Foods include good, quality fats and proteins, green leafy vegetables and non-processed, non-packaged foods. Good Low Inflammation Fat Examples include: Quality fats like Raw nuts, seeds, extra virgin olive oil, unrefined coconut oil, ghee/ clarified butter/ grass-fed butter, rendered fats like rendered duck fat. Be sure to check first with your doctor before starting a new diet.

High Inflammation Foods include things like gluten, refined sugars, simple carbs (think bread products). Even eating a small bite of glutinous food will create inflammation in the body that lasts months. Once we stop eating it and find we can cook and bake other delicious alternatives and avoid all the pain and suffering, avoiding these inflammatory foods becomes easier. I liken it to returning to an abusive relationship and use this example with my patients: we think this time will be different-this time I can handle it-I am stronger somehow this time-last time wasn’t so bad-this time I won’t get burned or hurt-and yet we always do-and it gets worse each time until some of us become very broken and unhealthy. It is our job to look out for our bodies and minds so that we can stay healthy.

Supplements: More than likely You are Low in Magnesium (especially with low thyroid)… 

Read the 7 Signs of Magnesium Deficiency

Often Progesterone is Low with Low Thyroid. (Interestingly enough, Magnesium helps the body with Progesterone balance). So, supplementing with Magnesium is usually a good thing. Read Here Why You Probably Don’t get Enough Magnesium

 

MOVEMENT: Moving the body improves both mind and body, whatever ails you. Specifically for thyroid, good forms of exercise include: Yoga, Qi Gong, Walking and perhaps Jogging or Running. Be sure to check first with your doctor before starting any exercise routine.

SLEEP: Sleep is crucial to our health and well-being and can help stave off disease. We now know the effects poor sleep can have on the brain…

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), Sleep deprivation increases Alzheimer’s protein in the brain.

Basically, the protein plaques which are cleaned up during sleep, are not cleaned up due to lack of quality sleep.

I think of the little yellow Pac-Man (gobbling up all the bad plaque in my brain at night when I sleep) and this usually gets my butt to bed in time for 8 hours of sleep. What can I say?- I am a very visual learner.

If visual is one of your more dominant learning styles, you may choose to adopt this method of getting yourself to bed earlier, too!

I am all about doing what works for us as individuals to make ourselves compliant on the big stuff.

–Hey, sometimes we have to convince the little kid in us that it really is time for bed!

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture for Rosacea

Facial Rejuvenation is used to treat many things besides wrinkles, including Rosacea.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is common and is seen as a tendency to flush with redness seen in the skin, usually the face. Blood vessels may become visible and if not treated over time this inflammation can lead to visibly bumpy skin over the cheeks and nose area with redness which may become permanent, especially over the nose.

An example of someone well-known who has Rosacea is former US President Bill Clinton with redness over the middle of his face.

What is Gua-Sha?

Gua sha is a tool used by licensed acupuncturists which is great for massaging the face of someone with Rosacea. Gua sha is smoothed over the face like a massage by the acupuncturist to help relax the stressed skin. Often gua sha tools are made with jade which is naturally cooling and soothing to the skin.

Rosacea Home Care:

 

  • Avoid the Sun/ Use SPF topical facial sunscreen
  • Avoid Spicy Foods (if a trigger)
  • Avoid becoming Over-heated

Yes! Acupuncture Really helps with Fibromyalgia

What Can Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture helps the Fibromyalgia patient with aching pain in their muscles and joint pain which often accompanies muscle aches. Acupuncture is good at treating pain, even when the pain comes and goes and moves around from place to place.  Acupuncture is good at treating many types of pain, whether due to injury, genetics, congenital (born with), a diagnosed disease or syndrome or for unknown cause.

  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Low Mood

Acupuncture can also help with low energy, fatigue and low mood which is often a part of the pain syndrome called Fibromyalgia.

Acupuncture helps muscle pain and joint pain. Many patients with R.A. get relief with acupuncture for their joint pain.

Acupuncture helps relieve pain and improve mood and energy by helping your body to balance itself. So, the needles do about 20% of the work while your body does the other 80%. Isn’t the body a miraculous thing? It truly wants to get better. Acupuncture can help your body get there. Acupuncture does not cure Fibromyalgia, though it can help you on on your journey of wellness to enjoy a smoother ride with less bumps of aches and pains. 

Acupuncture Improves Quality of Life!

Patients come to appointments more frequently at first, then appointments are spread out further and further over time with the same outcome of decreased pain and increased energy and mood. This is because acupuncture builds up within your body with each treatment. Usually patients will come in once or twice per week at first and end up coming in once per month or even once every eight weeks with the same sustained relief that once lasted a few days!

Many find they are able get more done in their day and are able to be more socially active with the added energy and decreased pain after acupuncture treatments! Some patients are happy to finally be able to attend baseball games which they were unable to endure before acupuncture. Others can do hours of gardening or complete their daily household tasks without needing to rest or nap. Many patients have tapered down to taking less daily pain medications and some have even stopped taking their pain medications (under doctor supervision) since having acupuncture treatment.

  • More Physical Activity
  • Increased Social Activity
  • Same Results, Less treatments over time

Suffering with Nausea During Your 1st Trimester of Pregnancy?  You NEED Acupuncture!

(Aleesha D Acupuncture also helps Patients Suffering Nausea Due to Cancer Treatments)!

Read How Acupuncture Helps Nausea and Other Side Effects Due to Chemotherapy Here

Why Get Acupuncture for Nausea:

  • Relief of Nausea/ Vomit
  • Improved Appetite
  • Improved Energy
  • Improved Mood
  • Improved Sleep

Nausea makes it difficult to eat regularly and to choose nutrient-rich foods. Just like when we suffer with the flu, we just try to eat a small bite of bland, easy-to-digest snack foods like crackers. This is not the way to feed a pregnancy! Your body needs EXTRA food with even MORE NUTRITION than ever before!

This is your body’s #1 job now.

Acupuncture is also very useful for improving overall energy, mood and sleep, all of which are decreased during pregnancy!

Acupuncture Treats Facial Wrinkles, too.

Other Tools in Your Acupuncturist’s Tool Box for Nausea:

  • Pressure point beads applied to wrists to take home
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Food Therapy
  • Lifestyle Recommendations (based on individual patient intake)

Some licensed acupuncturists will give beads to wear home over the wrists for a sort-of extended treatment. The patient suffering with symptoms of nausea is usually pretty grateful for this as it allows for a steady appetite and better ability to function with everyday tasks.

Some foods/ teas/ herbs may be recommended for nausea to supplement with or to avoid during the first trimester.

(Many find either Ginger tea or Peppermint tea is helpful to relieve Nausea)

Lifestyle recommendations may be made by your acupuncturist, in addition to diet recommendations.

Remember, your body is doing A LOT right now!

Respect your body and yourself. Do NOT over do it.

Aleesha D Acupuncture will help you get through morning sickness during the first trimester and beyond. Acupuncture continues to be good during pregnancy and afterward for improving your body’s overall Qi. This is because during pregnancy, the body’s Qi (Energy) becomes stagnated. Pregnant patients feeling Qi Stagnation often complain of feeling tired and fatigue which is worse with stress and inactivity.

Well, Acupuncture DOES Help Lower Stress & Fatigue!

Common Symptoms of Qi Stagnation:

  • Irritability/ Mood swings
  • Bitter taste
  • Fatigue
