Acupuncture for Golf Elbow

Mary (name has been changed) came to see me for a “Golf Elbow” problem; she played golf, not tennis.  Her elbow had been painful for a few months and was affecting her golf game as well as her life.  She loves the game and likes to win every time and at home she had problems doing the house work.

According to Mary, the pain had been reduced by 70% after 2 treatments. As we continue the treatments she commented that she was sleeping better, that her husband had commented how much easier married life had become.  Mary realized that the treatments were helping her beyond healing the tennis elbow problem.  She came once a week for her treatment and marveled at how her golf game had improved, how rested she felt, how she could do more now without feeling tired.

The best for me was when she told me how much her husband loved me because she (Mary) was so much easier to get along with.  Cases like this one make my life fuller; it is such a joy to see the patients come in with a lot of physical, mental, emotional problems and feeling out of control and leave transformed. After a few sessions they begin to feel good take control of their lives again! Thanks Mary!!!

What is Juan Water?

As the office manager at American Health Acupuncture in Tucson AZ, I get to hear all the amazing success stories directly from our patients as they come and go from our clinic. Recently, a Mother and her 17 year old son, coming in for treatments from Sierra Vista, shared a short conversation they had earlier in their car during their trip here.
He asked his Mom if she could make “Juan Water” again. He missed it. I asked them both what was “Juan Water”? They told me that both of their kids enjoyed having it available in the home while they were growing up. His Mom said she liked to have it available on the counter in one of those self dispensing water jugs, so they could help themselves all day long. They drink little to no soda in their family.
You see, the son had been treated by our Acupuncturist, Juan Tejada, since he was 7 years old, for many conditions that youth’s encounter during the growing years. One of the very first times he had come in for acupuncture, he was told of how to make his water more flavorful and most of all…healthy to drink. Add a pinch of sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice to your water. This actually benefits the body by helping the spleen with the absorption into the body. * When severely dehydrated, use lots of fresh lime/lemon juice and add sea salt so you can taste it.
What a great healthy choice and a great practice to raise a healthier family. At such a young age, he actually “Got  It!” WE constantly re-educate our patients about natural ways to feed and fuel their bodies. Water is one of the least liked beverages in our U.S. culture,  but most important fluid we can put into our bodies.
“So next time you reach for a drink, make it “Juan Water” and hydrate your body with a natural electrolyte combination.”

The Side Effects of Acupuncture

This natural medicine doesn’t have to be scary! For some people, trying Traditional Chinese medicine or TCM for the first time can be uncharted foreign territory. The needles we use are sterile, used once, and are hair thin. Here’s a short story of one patient’s experience with the healing process from our Tucson Acupuncture Clinic.

Acupuncturist Juan Tejada explains in a 60 second Radio spot  about  the side effects of acupuncture – or should we say the Side Benefits of acupuncture using Traditional Chinese Medicine, Herbal Formulas, and Acupuncture for pain, stress, injury and more in Tucson. Pre-recorded locally in Tucson on the radio.

Home remedies and nutritional therapies

Have you noticed….There are so many great herbs and nutritional therapies being shared everywhere regarding their natural healing benefits? However, that being said….

BE WARNED!!!!!! Sometimes making the wrong adjustments to your body’s chemistry can cause more harm than good.

1 – Taking single herbs are rarely a good idea. Which ones would you benefit from?

2 – Detoxing may not be a good idea either! How do you know a detox is right for you?

3 – Eating Smoothies or raw fruits/vegetables may cause a problem for many people.

In short (VERY SHORT SIMPLIFIED explanation)….

1 –  Herbs are best introduced into the body in a combination with other herbs or as the whole plant or maybe using the flowers only, or the leaves only, or the stems only, or the roots only. It depends on the physical or emotional change you are making to bring the body into balance. Most of us are not trained in the pharmacology of these plants and may cause the body more stress, add more heat, too cooling etc…. Knowing what your particular body’s needs are as well as it’s constitution is important.

2 –  Detoxing can strip the body of much needed energy when someone is ill or getting close to illness and may cause a healing crisis in many different ways. Doing a detox is best after bringing the body into a more balanced state. Then the detox process can help move the toxins out of the body without depleting the person’s energy or immune system or their capacity to heal. In TCM we have formulas that naturally aid in detoxing without depleting the body. (Again – everything in balance.)

3 – Something a simple as a smoothie can cause the body to more imbalanced. Many smoothie recipes may sound healthy and healing- but may cause an opposite effect. Example: too sweet with too much fruit or too cooling for a person who has digestive issues, or blood sugar levels, etc…. One needs to know what combinations of spices, or ingredients help to balance a raw beverage and which ones are beneficial for your individual body’s constitution. This is crucial in order to gain the nutritional healing benefits.

Your best choice in doing these home remedies and nutritional therapies isknowing what your particular body type needs. In Traditional Chinese  Medicine (TCM) we take into account all of this when treating our patients with herbs, acupuncture, and make nutritional and lifestyle recommendations to bring their body’s back into balance and wellbeing.

Before doing a detox or trying a new supplement or single herb (ie:  Tumeric, Macca Root, Aloe Vera Juice, etc….) please check with your healthcare practitioner and learn what your body needs.

Remember too-

“Your body’s needs are always changing – so must what you ingest! 

That way you will always be at your optimum!”

Good luck & best of health!
