As an acupuncturist who focuses on eye care I am often learning about new methods, products and techniques to use in my practice. My newest find are these all natural eye drops used to treat dry eyes, one of the most common eye ailments I treat. Stay tuned as I give more info on this product including a special summer trial I’ll be offering @oaktreehealth for those looking to treat their eyes with acupuncture and natural medicine. 📍
With summer in full swing it can be easy to reach for a cold one the next time you’re relaxing in the sun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I bet my idea of a cold one is different than yours. A few years ago my family and I discovered kombucha. It offers the same fizz and refreshment as a beer but also comes with a surplus of benefits to your body. From helping to better your digestion, aiding in detoxification and improving immunity kombucha is a win win in my eyes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you guess which glass is filled with kombucha and which is not in this picture? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @oaktree is giving away one week of kombucha from Zazen kombucha tea as part of their Spring into Summer contest.

Coffee, my go to morning beverage. Aside from boosting longevity coffee has been shown to reduce retinal damage 👀, certain cancer risk ( such as melanoma and colorectal cancers) and can even cut post-exercise muscle pain by 48%!
A well deserved refuel after a long bike ride. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you eat to fuel your day? Over the years my diet has changed a lot, and has included vegan and vegetarian years until I naturally settled back to an omnivore diet full of healthy fats, animal proteins and vegetables.

Practice makes perfect. This past weekend I was in New York teaching a seminar on acupuncture and eye health. Here’s a quick snap of points used for eye health and much more! • This is what I find so interesting about acupuncture.
