Sick? Sinus Infection? Pain? Why Acupuncture May Work Better than Drugs.

Posted by apwood on December 9, 2008

It does for me!

My first experience with Acupuncture was about a year and a half ago.  I’d been under a lot of stress and I wasn’t taking great care of myself so I came down with a sinus infection.  After trying a few natural therapies like a Nettie pot, sleep, etc – I went to my MD.  I’d had a low grade fever for a week and nothing seemed to be working.

He gave me an antibiotic that I was to take for a week.  Which i did and still nothing.  I still had the low grade fever and the sinus pain.  I went back because I was feeling even worse.  He prescribed me a stronger antibiotic this time for 10 days.

It just didn’t seem right so I decided to give Acupuncture a try instead.  I went to Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture and saw Margaret Sheehan. (West Chester, PA)  She was friendly and knowledgeable, explaining what she was doing and how it all worked.

A few tiny painless needles in my sinuses and an hour later I was on my way home.  I was able to breathe, the pain was about gone, and I was really relaxed!  The next morning I took my temperature and my fever was gone!  Wow, I was surprised too!

I felt better in 24 hours – naturally!  I’ll take that any day over 2 weeks of antibiotics that kill all the bacteria even the good bacteria in my body!  (If you’ve already been on antibiotics and need to replace the ‘good’ bacteria look into a quality probiotic to do this!)

Are you unfamiliar and wondering what Acupuncture is?

Acupuncture
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into specific points on the body to improve energy, relieve stress, alleviate pain and improve function.

Oriental Medicine refers to the energy force running throughout the body as Qi (roughly pronounced Chee). Qi travels throughout the body along “Meridians” or special pathways. Energy constantly flows up and down these pathways. A person’s health is influenced by the flow of Qi in the body. If the flow of Qi is insufficient, unbalanced or interrupted, illness may occur. Acupuncture is used to restore balance to the Qi and to promote healing.

Acupuncture points are specific locations where the Meridians come to the surface of the skin, and are easily accessible by “needling,” Acupuncture needles are disposible. They are used once and disgarded in accordance with medical biohazard regulations and guidlines. Moxibustion and Acupressure are completely non-invasive treatments based on Meridian theory that are often used as complementary treatments to Acupuncture.

My treatments have alleviated sinus issues, pain (IE- knee, elbow, back etc), and much more!

Wouldn’t you rather feel better naturally without the side effects of antibiotics if they weren’t completely necessary?

Wouldn’t you rather boost your immune system naturally with Acupuncture?

Since then I always use Acupuncture as my first choice for treatment!  Check out Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture if you are in Pennsylvania or the surrounding area.  It is worth it!  You are worth it!

To Your Health,

Amy

Why Is the Media allowed to Choose OUR Presidential Candidates?

Posted by apwood on May 15, 2008

Before there was just McCain, Hillary, & Obama to choose from – I was rooting for Ron Paul.

Why? Because he made sense. I watched many of his videos on you tube and he was no bull shit. Simply, he wanted to take the ‘Big’ out of government.

I especially liked him for his views on wanting to reign in the power of the FDA, lobbyists, and the governments power over suppressing alternative health, as well as, his views on fixing our economic situation and the ‘war.’

Why? That’s another post (and evident if you’ve checked out my other blog www.greenlifesaver.net), but for now I found this video most informative. Now I know Why? Ron Paul disappeared.

The big question is WHY? does the media get to choose this and WHO? is running the show behind the scenes?

Why was the 3rd Week with Eckhart & Oprah-Just As Exciting to Me As The First?

Posted by apwood on March 18, 2008

mpj042259800001.jpg8:30 pm EST, it was time to take my seat at the 3rd weekly class by Oprah & Eckhart Tolle. Exhausted from a long day, I debated. Logging on, just in case so I was guaranteed a seat… The rush came over me while watching the clock count backwards. It was the same one I felt the first week… anticipation, wonder, and so much more. I can only describe it as a kid on Christmas morning at the moment before opening the presents, the awe, hoping for that special something.

Sounds corny, but that is how it feels to me.. even this 3rd week. I wanted to go to sleep and watch it tomorrow but the exhaustion lifted and now I’m more awake than I was an hour and a half ago. Since we are all energy, does all that collective positive energy make everyone coming to the class feel this?

I chose not to ‘take notes’ as i did the first week. Last week as well as this week it seemed to be a distraction. Just wanting to absorb what was being said was more important. There really is no way to completely ‘get it by reading a summarized account. I’ve finished the book and it had a profound impact on me. I’ve been rereading it because there is just so much that I’m amazed by and just want to keep absorbing. But I’m truly grateful for the class because it is really reinforcing the concepts.

Eckhart is truly talented at giving examples of issues and resolutions in an easy to understand way. I think a big problem with people ‘getting’ philosophical or spiritual content is the inability of the messenger to present it in a way that can be grasped by those who are not already enlightened. Even those of us who had glimpses of it but couldn’t wrap their head around it without those examples had problems expanding our understanding.

The concept of becoming aware of the ego seems so simplistic, it is so noticeable when Eckhart points out the attributes i.e. – anger, aggression, judgment, hostility, complaining, etc. Noticing it in glimpses is so different from living without being run by the ego. But Eckhart made me feel better when he explained the process. First you will notice afterwards -i.e. after yelling, you’ll come back a few minutes later and realize it. Then the awakening may happen in the middle of it. Then before you act on it. The ultimate goal being able to separate from the ego completely by not having the urge to act on it since you don’t relate to those actions anymore. Although still in the beginning stages some of the time, I am so much more aware and able to separate (even if it is afterwards or halfway through).

At the end I again felt relief when Eckhart said something like the ego isn’t the enemy, it is not threatening. I had been thinking that my ego was an enemy not a sad or confused child. It is much easier to be gentle to the later, which will ultimately bring about the change more quickly. Also that the ego had a purpose to make us realize that there is a consciousness. So the suffering has a purpose, it makes me look at it like ‘thanks for all that‘ instead of ‘why did I have to feel such pain?’

Eckhart gave a great example of a plumber that had come to his home. The man was hostile and gruff. Eckhart did not get offended or take it personally as he could see that this man was conditioned to be this way. Maybe he was always treated with anger since being a child. Not reacting to the man’s rudeness, Eckhart treated him kindly and patiently and almost better than one would a non-rude person. Eckhart explained that after about 20 min. the man was talking to him with a kind and gentle voice just as Eckhart was speaking to him with.

What a great example. It made me realize that most of my life has been spent reacting to the way people spoke to me or how a situation felt unfair to me and I was not happy with it. Covering sadness with anger, so not to appear weak (I equated sadness and tears with weakness) I looked at life through a negative aspect. Complaining, dissatisfaction, feeling things just weren’t fair was the norm. Still is sometimes but more quickly than I imagined, I’m beginning to see that as Eckhart explains that accepting and ‘making friends’ with the present moment is the best thing you can do. He says (without looking up his exact words I believe Oprah said this is on pg 78) that ‘what you resist persists.’

So being present and non-reactive to a situation will lesson the negative reaction resulting in a more positive outcome. Genius. It seems so simple when you hear it – and it probably is – when you make it your habit instead of what most of us have as our habits.

So just some of my ramblings…

My question since last week about labeling- Is the ‘not labeling’ stuff that Eckhart talks about (because it causes us to become disinterested) the reason that so many marriages fail? Is the word “marriage” the problem since it labels the two people and causes them to no longer be interested in the other.

Why is DELL NoT so Swell?

Posted by apwood on February 26, 2008

mpj040252000001.jpg

So many reasons… where to start.

First, I paid $1,200. 00 for a laptop – that had to have vista put on it. 4 phone calls and many hours later – I’ve given up on ‘fixing’ it. The last response I got was “we don’t know how to fix the problems yet, we’ll let you know.” Meanwhile, I can’t get XP, they only offer Vista, so I just have to deal with it.

One of the customer service reps took 10 min. to tell me a story comparing the Vista system to a Ferrari. Something about you don’t get rid of a Ferrari while you work the kinks out! Are you kidding me?! Was that part of their script!?

So before a recent trip – I was pressed for time and needed a camera. I took a look at their site and found a Canon. Good name, Good camera and it wasn’t made by Dell so what could go wrong?

Well, to begin with, the order wouldn’t go through and I was given a message to call Dell to place my order. The woman who answered gladly placed it for me quickly. When she mentioned the price, I told her it sounded high. She told me that the lower price was an internet special only. So I informed her that I tried to place it online but couldn’t because of Dell’s system saying to call. So she said she would credit my Dell account the $20.00 plus odd dollars after it charged in a day or so. She also assured me that she would call me to follow up when it was finished.

Wonderful, all finished.

After returning home from my trip, I remembered that I had not received my call and checked to see if I was credited. I was not. So back to calling Dell. I paused first, the twenty some dollars probably isn’t worth it, but the point was.

So I called.

This is when it got out of control and I was shocked at what was said to me. I will summarize as we could be here all day considering I was on the phone for a long time!

First call – I lucked out getting a sassy and monotone girl named ‘Nisha’ to assist me. She listened to my story and told me that there was nothing they could do because they don’t give credits. When I explained that the previous rep told me this so even if it was not policy it wasn’t good business to just state that there was nothing she could do. (Here’s a thought maybe get the first rep. who promised it to me and explain that she informed me incorrectly.)

Again, repeating that there was nothing she could do, I asked for her manager.

She tried to kindly tell me no because he would tell me the same thing. I insisted – kindly of course.

So she transferred me to ‘David’ the manager who repeated Nisha’s practiced response. When I tried explaining to him that it wasn’t as much about the $20.00 but the fact that I was promised this and since I was unable to place it online (although I wanted to and tried) he proceeded to ask me what i would do.

I told him what any good business person would. That I would get the rep, educate her, apologize to me, give me a certificate towards a future purchase, and thank me for my business. Well David didn’t agree because he proceeded to rudely tell me he couldn’t call me back because they can’t call out, that there was nothing he could do- that was policy, interrupting me every time I spoke, etc. So, I asked for his manager and he told me he didn’t have one. I repeated the question, just to make sure he heard it correctly. Yes, he again said he didn’t have one. Then he put on his mute button, ignored me, and sat there until I hung up.

Incredible. Now I didn’t even care about the money – I would pay money to talk to his boss so he would be accountable for his pathetic managerial skills.

So I called back – told my story again – spoke with a rep and manager in another area that couldn’t help me. Then they transferred me to the correct department and I had to tell my story again. This time the rep ‘Divya’ was kind and put me through to her manager ‘Michelle’. Who was also very kind and forthcoming when I asked who her manager was so he could deal with David.

Yes, I’m exhausted too if you are even still reading this.

The big guy, her manager, was ‘Moby’. But he wasn’t in. She promised he would call me Monday.

Low and behold he did! I was shocked and happy. Moby immediately apologized for David’s behavior. (Yeah, but it was almost so smooth and flat that I wondered how many times he’d said this before.) Either way someone finally apologized and that was somewhat of a relief. He did also offer to educate the first rep! Wow, I see why Moby is the boss of the bosses. But in the end he came up short saying there was nothing he could do about the credit. (I suppose even the big bosses at Dell don’t have to be accountable for what the reps say to customers.) When I explained to him that it was the point not the twenty but if it was my customer that I would offer something. He told me that he would have Michelle call me back if they could.

That was a week ago. I haven’t received my call back but I’m finished with calling Dell. I wonder if David is still rudely interrupting customers and placing them on mute until they give up….

Just wanted to warn you *if you place an order online with DELL for a lower price and there is a problem* do not call them to place the order! And if something is wrong – and the rep is not helpful and you ask for a manager and get David – do yourself a favor and hang up!
