Anxiety is increasingly common in children and teens today. Over 4 million children in the United States between ages 3 and 17 are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and many more suffer from anxiety.
According to the CDC website:
When children do not outgrow the fears and worries that are typical in young children, or when there are so many fears and worries that they interfere with school, home, or play activities, the child may be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Examples of...
Coronavirus (and other pathogens) are scary. COVID-19, in particular, has already killed thousands worldwide and infected over a million.
It's a tragedy that people have lost their lives, and we ought to do everything we can to mitigate its spread.
It's important to follow the health guidelines you receive from your local government officials to help keep yourself and your family safe.
But... in this video, I share a coronavirus perspective you may not have heard.
A piece of the conversation...

In this video, I will teach you two of the BEST, most POWERFUL acupuncture points (or acupoints) for immunity.
These acupoints strengthen Wei Qi, a similar concept as the immune system in Western medicine, so the body will be better equipped to stay well and fight off illness.
If you do succumb to illness, you can also use these acupoints during your recovery to address post-viral fatigue and lingering respiratory symptoms.
There are 2 ways to stimulate these acupuncture points at...
Stress is a part of life.
I’m sure you’ve had a time in your life that was stressful, say an intense deadline for a project. And as soon as you finished your project, you immediately got sick!
It's a universal truth that we’re more prone to illness when life is crazy busy.
But, we often don’t think of our kids as being stressed until they get a little older and into their teens. However, stress can even affect babies. I can’t think of a more stressful...
Parents ask me all the time, "What else can I do to boost my child's immune system?"
Once kids are back in school they're constantly being exposed to germs. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. But what makes one person more vulnerable to germs than others?
The strength of your immune system!
According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) germ theory; germs don’t make you sick. Rather, your body’s inability to fend off germs and...
Pediatric tuina massage, or Chinese infant massage, has been used for thousands of years in the East to keep kids healthy and treat illness.
This type of massage is largely unknown in the West and it is my sincere hope to change that!
I want parents and practitioners to learn and use pediatric tuina massage to benefit their own children and then pass down this powerful tool down to their own kids and grandkids.

Day 4 is all about boosting our immunity!
This is the perfect time of year to give our immune system some extra support. As we gather for the holidays, we share the love and the germs!
Everything is amplified during the holidays - the good and the bad! Also, most of us are eating more sugar and other foods that we limit the rest of the year and this can also affect our immune system.
Regardless of the source, extra stress leaves us more vulnerable to catching a cold or flu.
Day 3 is all about supporting the digestive system!
In my opinion, this could be the most important day of the reset. Our energy and vitality are dependent upon the nutrient density of the food we eat AND our ability to absorb the nutrients from our food.
If one or the other goes wrong, we can feel tired, lack stamina, have poor immunity or problems with our digestion.
This time of year our digestive system is easily overtaxed with sweets, alcohol and all the goodies of the holidays.
