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.

Acupuncture for Endometriosis Pain (Pain and Women’s Health)

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis patients usually suffer with severely painful, heavy periods which often includes blood clots. Endometriosis involves endometrial tissue growing outside the uterus. Auto Immune symptoms or diagnosis, such as Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism often coincide with Endometriosis. Some women experience no abdominal or pelvic pain and are not diagnosed with Endometriosis until they are seen for infertility issues. Fatigue, low libido and anxiety or mild to moderate depression often accompanies Endometriosis.

How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?

A laparoscopy, through a small incision near the belly button visually confirms Endometriosis.

Western medicine may prescribe birth control pills or endometrial tissue may be removed in severe cases or with difficulty conceiving.

 

Why Acupuncture for Endometriosis?

Acupuncture treatment for Endometriosis treats the root cause in order to reduce pain in the abdomen and pelvic area, bloating in the abdominal area, and promotes the natural healing in your own body in order to achieve and maintain a natural hormonal balance. For this reason, acupuncture is also known to help with imbalance in mood and lower energy associated with Endometriosis.

 

Endometriosis Testimonial 

“When I saw Aleesha for Endometriosis problems I was in so much pain and discomfort and with feeling extremely tired all the time, I could barely get through work every day and didn’t know where to turn. Aleesha really listened to me and seemed to know exactly what to do to help which set my mind at ease right away. I noticed the pain in my belly decreased and my energy increased after just one treatment! I was able to get up and out of bed in the morning without hitting the snooze button! I trust her and love coming to Aleesha D Acupuncture because I know I’m in good hands. She truly cares for you as a person and how you feel.”  – J. Olson

How many Acupuncture Treatments?

Acupuncture for Endometriosis shows the best results with once or twice per week for 8-12 weeks or more, depending on what the goals of the patient are and how quickly their body responds. If fertility is also being worked on, further acupuncture treatments will be recommended. Severity of and how long the issues have lasted (how chronic) will also help determine how many treatments will be needed and how frequently acupuncture should be done. Be sure to see a licensedacupuncturist to ensure your personal safety.
