🔸”You'll be fine.”🔸
*
How many of you have gone into a doctor's office or visited a friend to seek help only to be told
“You'll be fine"
*
That is all I have ever heard from most people in my life.
*
My family, friends, colleagues, and even doctors. -"You'll be fine"-
*
Really?
What I have will never go away.
It's genetic.
I can't give it back and it's never going away.
*
It isn't because I have not tried hard enough, or as one doctor said:
"I find it highly ironic what you do for a living and you have an autoimmune disorder".
*
Yes, really. Can you believe a rheumatologist would say that to their patient?
*
It happens all the time and it's called "gaslighting".
*
I have had to walk away from people I love because they couldn't understand what was going on with me and they would say "I would be fine"
*
Having an invisible illness is isolating, lonely and having to explain why I can't eat this, drink that, get drunk with you, decline social invitations and it
is hard mentally and emotionally emotionally.
*
I look okay on the outside but no one really knows what is
going on inside of me.

“You don't look sick."
“How can you work?"
"But you eat so healthy"
"A little bite won't hurt you"
"I think you're over exaggerating"
"Mind over matter"

Getting shut down or gas lighted by friends, family and doctors can be emotionally exhausting.

It can damage your self-confidence and self-esteem.
It can rob you of your trust in yourself and in your reality.
*
Get the anger, the rage, and the frustration out because in the end it's only hurting you.
*
Sometimes you have to walk away and find support in other places.
*
My normal is different and that's okay. I may not be able to go 100 miles an hour but I can get to the same destination going a lot slower. Ultimately I reach the same goals just going at different pace.
*
*
*
*
If you have loved one who has a chronic or invisible illness, hold space for them..
*
Listen, acknowledge what is happening with them even if you don't understand, you can't fix them and don't tell them:
*
🔸"You'll be fine"🔸

Goodbye bad vibes, featured in @bustle.

The mind ,body and energy are all connected.

Negative and positive energy are everywhere. It's in people cars, airports oceans, even buildings.

If you're sensitive like me, you can take an energetic hit and it is important to remove this energy whether it is within you or in your environment.

Here are ways you can clear it or identify it:

Don't run away.
If you can hang with the energy the better you will be able to work though it.
If you are unsure you have taken a "hit" you may have the following symptoms:

▫️headaches. these headaches feel dull almost like something is weighing on you or dragging at you.

▫️You may feel tension, sad, angry restless. Get in a warm shower with sea salt to help remove it. End with a quick ten seconds of cold

▫️Tummy aches may be a sign you're dealing with negative energy. There is a reason we say "what does your gut tell you."

▫️If you have ever felt a slight recoil when dealing with someone you may be experiencing negative energy. Take a deep breath and this should relax.

▫️If you have adrenal fatigue and everything is draining your reserves. If you can't fall or stay asleep, feel wiped out and frazzled you may be dealing with a situation that is dragging you down. If you take better care of yourself it will be easier to face the issue head on.

▫️Grief is stored in the lungs and we hold that energy there. if you have been dealing with a loss and can't breathe try and work through it so you can start feeling better.

▫️Negative energy can manifest as pain. Stress will stagnate energy , constrict muscles and and cause fatigue and aches. Move your body to begin feeling better.

▫️If you cant shake it off you may have depression. Moving your body and getting help can lift sadness off of your consciousness. Get mental help if necessary.

▫️If you're not feeling your old self, and feeling a bit off it may be time to do some reflection. Get outside and get professional help.

▫️Vampire energy is when another person makes you feel exhausted, tired , confused ,sick or negative.Be mindful and get rid of those people who suck your energy dry. Move on and let go of them.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every single one of us has lost someone to this disease.

Did you know that 1 in 8 women are affected this type of cancer and environmental exposure is responsible for almost 90 percent of cases?

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in women, including my beloved grandmother.

Here are my top 8 ways to reduce your risk from getting cancer.
•⠀
🍗Eat organic animal products.
•⠀
💦Drink clean water. Invest in a filter which reduces the amount of chemicals in your water. Remember that water in glass bottles is the safest.
•⠀
🍎Eat organic fruits and vegetables. This can be pricey but if you are on a budget, please refer to @EWG clean fifteen and dirty dozen. The phytochemicals in vegetables and fruit are some of the best way to protect you from cancer.
•⠀
🥑Eat 25-40 grams of fiber a day. Fiber has been proven to decrease cancers and cardiovascular disease, another increasing health issue with⠀
women.
•⠀
🚭.Do not smoke. Smoking increases the risks of cancer.
•⠀
🔆Use sunscreen!
•⠀
☠Avoid chemical exposure. ‪The dirty dozen‬ is a list released by the Environmental Working Group which contains food you should by organic.

♻Use organic or healthy cleaning products for your home. Just like eating organic food, you want to use organic cleaning products and cosmetics. Just like food, what we breathe and what touches our skin goes directly into our bodies and bloodstream.
•⠀
⛹🏻‍♀️Exercise! Sitting is the new smoking; it has been proven that exercising can decrease the risk of getting cancer.⠀
•⠀
📵Keep your cell phone away from your bra.

🔑Awareness is key. Know how to reduce your risks and the healthiest options for you and your family.

Hi everyone👋, Happy October. It’s been awhile and I thought I would say hi to my new followers and old friends out there.

I’m Elizabeth,and I am the doctor who loves taking care of people when they have nowhere else to turn regarding health care issues.

You may know me from all the photos you have been seeing of people with gemstones on their face. I have been practicing cosmetic acupuncture for almost twenty years and working with those cute little gems in my practice for about the same amount of time.

Fun fact: my first job out of TCM school was working for a plastic surgeon where I created a protocol to cut healing time in half.

When I’m not getting “stoned” with a cosmetic acupuncture patient, I have a very serious side to my practice. I help people regain a sense of control over their bodies, create cohesive integrative care with their physicians and utilize a variety of healing modalities including nutrition, Chinese, Integrative, Functional and energy medicine.

I treat many women who have gotten lost and gas-lighted in the system and find the root cause of what is going on with them and help get them better.

My patients are treated empathetically with heart centered medicine. I know what you’re going through and how to get you through it.

On a lighter note, October is going to be great!

I have a lot to celebrate with you this month. I am having beautiful giveaways in honor of all the goodness and blessings I have received lately and that I am sharing with you this month.

Here are a few things we are celebrating:
✨Spoonie life, what it is like to live with a chronic illness and live a happy and fulfilling life.
✨Breast cancer awareness month. 1 in 8 women get it including my beloved grandmother.
✨The Teal Pumpkin Project, raising awareness for food allergies during Halloween.
✨A special surprise the end of the month.

Please stay tuned to my feed so you can participate in all the healing and happiness going on this month.

If you have any questions or special requests,DM me or leave a comment.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you💗

Ovulation, Fertility and Chinese Medicine.

Did you know that Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture can regulate your cycle but also help regulate ovulation and increase the chance of getting pregnant?

In the last two decades I have had many patients trying to get pregnant based on a perfect 14 day window which doesn’t exist for many women. Some women ovulate on day 9 and some as late as day 20.

There are so many reasons in Chinese Medicine why a woman may be unable to conceive. It can be as simple as lack of blood flow to the uterus to something more complex such as polycystic ovary disease or a complicated history of miscarriages.

By building women’s energy and blood in their bodies and correcting imbalances that Western medicine has no way to describe or treat is where acupuncture shines!

TCM and Acupuncture is a medical system into itself and offers a distinct approach to diagnosing medical conditions as compared to Western medicine that we can give shape and form to why a woman cannot conceive or regulate menstrual cycles without using hormones.

Here are some facts why acupuncture is effective with boosting fertility and regulating hormones:
🔹A randomized, prospective trial showed that a single session of acupuncture can increase the chances of pregnancy in infertile women.
🔹Clinical evidence shows that acupuncture has long-lasting benefits for women who suffer from polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS) and who do not ovulate.
🔹Acupuncture before IVF increases chances of conception by 65%.
🔹Acupuncture can lower arterial uterine blood flow impedance, key to optimal endometrial receptivity.

Acupuncture is great treatment option for women because in today’s world, women are challenged by the effects of modernization. It isn’t just with fertility, but a wide range of health-related issues.

Stress, diet, poor food choices, menstrual disorders, and the increase of auto immune disorders are just a few reasons why it is great for women to consider the benefits of acupuncture.

If you are curious how acupuncture can help with fertility, hormonal issues or regulating you cycle feel free to DM me or arrange a no charge 30 min phone consult, link in bio🌸

Beyond humbled and excited to share my interview on @cbsmiami with beautiful @lisapetrillo about the gemstone acupuncture facial.

It was so fun getting the opportunity to sit down with Lisa and talk with her about the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture.

What I love telling people about this treatment is that it builds and treats the inside and outside of the body and face together addressing current skin issues and underlying costitutional patterns.

Thank you Lisa so much for sharing this special treatment! It was a huge honor having you. Xx😘💎

Right now we are going through so many changes:
⚪️The Full Moon
⚪️The Autumnal Equinox
⚪️Metal season of Chinese Medicine.

This is a time to turn inward. It is time to shed old patterns and release them and find balance in your body, mind and spirit.

Metal in Chinese Medicine is represented by the color white and the energy of the Lungs so breathe deeply in.

It is a time of great abundance from the time of harvest but also letting go represented by this shaman box from the indigenous people of Alaska sending a spirit into the sky.

As we break free of old patterns, especially ones of grief we can turn those emotions into love where the deepest healing takes place.

This is the time to begin to turn inward and reflect for the next 6 months where we have longer nights than we do of day.

This gives us an opportunity to go inside our hearts and minds and reflect, let go and start anew.

The time we are entering is a time to be clear and quiet energy and to allow the beauty of this transformative time begin.

This is a very powerful time for me this month that I am excited to share with you in the next few weeks.

I hope you too are able to harness this beautiful energy of transformation with me.

How do you rock the wellness trend of crystals?

Super excited to share my interview with @girlslifemag Crystal Clear, the secret source of positivity.

Crystals seem to be just about everywhere but how do you separate science from superstition and to begin your journey with them?

Crystals are minerals from the earth and each individual type of crystal retains a unique vibration. It is that vibration that attracts us to them.

It doesn’t matter what the reason is, there is a real reasons why we love them!

🔸Crystals and gemstones have been prized for thousands of years. They have been worn for years as jewelry, in crowns and used in trade.
🔸Crystals are minerals and since our bodies need minerals it is only natural that we gravitate to gemstones which are made of them.
🔸Crystals all carry a frequency and like music we are attracted to different frequencies and resonate with different ones.
🔸In TCM gemstones and crystals are prized for healing and resilience because of the time it took them to form deep inside the earth.

Selecting a crystal:
.
There is no right or wrong way to select a crystal. Just put down your phone & see what you naturally gravitate to.
.
Also you can find out about certain properties that a crystal is known to assist with. For example, citrine is grounding and good for digestion and Kunzite is both good for anxiety & yet powers you up.

Cleanse your crystal.
.
The first step when bringing home a crystal is to cleanse it with salt, saltwater, smoke, sun or moonlight. This will keep your new babies fresh & powerful. Remember to do this frequently, especially on a full moon.

Set your intention
.
Once your crystal is charged and cleared its time to rock and roll and set your intention.
.
Sit quietly and direct what kind of energy you want your crystal to have. This is a very powerful part of owning a crystal. I personally have two stones in my pocket at all times that keep me calm.

Crystals are a wonderful trend that is safe, fun & everyone can enjoy.

They will not cure your disease but will surely make you feel a lot better when you are around them.

What is your favorite crystal or gemstone?
I would love to hear from you💎

It’s Sunday night and you’re probably sitting there thinking “I over did it again this weekend”

"I was so good this whole week and I am right back to where I was last Sunday night"

You drank and over ate, and oh, what about that whole box of cookies you ate as well?

I will just start over again tomorrow.

Sound familiar? The dieting carousel is makes you feel bad about yourself but also stumps your progress.

Instead of beating yourself up every Sunday, start a new ritual.

Make Sunday a day of reflection and preparation and not of one of self-loathing.

It is not worth analyzing what went wrong and continue to go around and around and around every Sunday. You eat well the entire week and end up out of control over the weekend.

I see many of my patients on the dieting carousel.

It’s important to realize where and when you have problems and get the help you need to be successful. Look at where you feel the extra help and encouragement that yes, you can do this!

Use Sunday as a preparation day instead of day of binging.

Here are some quick tips to get you ready for the week to come and keep you feeling great even when the weekend rolls around.

✅Work out in the morning.
You ramp up your metabolism and get workouts out of the way.
✅Meal planning. ⠀
Make a list of what you need before you go to the store and stick to it.
✅Don’t go to the grocery store hungry.
Always eat a good meal before you go shopping.
✅Meal prep
I like using a cookie sheet and putting every veggie known to mankind in the oven at 400 degrees with olive oil and roasting them.
💚Pro tip, I always have frozen organic berries and vegetables on hand if I run out of food or if I need extra.
✅Leftovers
There is nothing wrong with making extra the night you cook and doubling your recipes. Take out at lunch is expensive and not as high quality.
✅Keep drinking to a minimum or not at all.
I cannot believe how many calories people throw back in a year. If you have just one drink a night every day for a year it is 15 pounds a booze a year on your body. Save the liquor for the weekend and just a few.

🧚‍♂️Make Sunday a great day and get off the diet carousel once and for all!

Does acupuncture work for menstrual cramps?

Just ask P here who used to have to miss a day of work every month.

She was embarrassed because everyone knew where she was the day she took off.📅🛌

Doubled over in pain, throwing up before her period, mood swings, ravenously eating a few days before her cycle led her to my office.

Does this sound familiar to you
♦️breakouts
♦️anxiety
♦️road rage the week before
♦️headaches
♦️fatigue
♦️irregular bowels
♦️crying
♦️weight fluctuations
♦️bloating
♦️heavy flow
♦️clotting
♦️breast distention
♦️pain

You don't have to suffer like P and many women do.

Acupuncture can help you feel so much better and not have to rely on pain killers every month let alone tearing the refrigerator doors off the week before your period starts.

Regular appointments can help you the whole month through and not just with the cramps, but overall well being, clearer skin and less mood swings as well.

Acupuncture balances the body by using needles to help the energy flow within your entire body which gets stuck and causes pain.

Regular appointments during the month regulate your cycle as well, and help lighten the flow.

Acupuncture is a safe and effective tool for regulating your monthly cycle along with improving, sleep, digestion and reducing stress which is all part of the treatment protocol.

Just like patient P it is important to know that acupuncture can take up to 3 months to regulate your cycle.

Some women need monthly check ups and for some the pain just goes away.

Are you tired of suffering? Periods don't have to be a "curse" and you can feel great all month.

Questions? I have answers!
