Note to Everyone:

Within the context of the new normal, the clinic has closed for acupuncture treatments. We have postponed Taum’s quarterly trip until the summer.  Instead, please sign up for herbal pickup starting Monday April 6. If you’d prefer delivery, email your request:

Herbal (anti-viral and immune focused) formulas classically used during viral epidemics including the recent SARS and corona CoV2 are being prepared.  These will be employed during the isolation period and into re-socialization. Specific information about these formulas and strategies will be forthcoming.  

For the vast majority of us, taking an herbal substance is correlated with treating an existing  symptom or disharmony.  Vitamins may be the exception in our culture. Plenty of A,C, D and zinc are appropriate now.  During this time, for your well being, I will encourage the use of the tailored herbal substances to aid in the strengthening of your immune system plus with specific additions to help the body when it comes into contact with any viral pathogen.  Even deadly viruses follow a known trajectory within the Chinese medical model. Each subsequent formula is designed to halt the virus in the outer most aspects of the body. Being asymptomatic will not mean you are not harboring or spreading the virus. 

When an external pathogen comes into contact with the body, the wei or exterior immunity mounts an attack.  If overwhelmed, like by a stronger army, the deeper channels are aroused and begin to fill as if taking the foreign prisoners deep inside to keep them away from the vital organs. If there is space, these pathogens or foreign invaders can remain latent for months to years.

If, however, the foreign invader’s strength or numbers are great, or the body’s stores already taxed, the deeper channels become overwhelmed.  Like the breaking of a dam, the pathogen plus the rest of the dormant contents spill back into circulation where they can then attack the organs, such as heart and lungs. Because of this, it is wise to enhance the wei qi to mount the best defense from the start. If that fails, it is best to fight the invader at the exterior to halt its progression. These are the strategies of the herbal formulas underway. Stay tuned and isolated.

Sending best wishes for wellness and ease.
