Acu Lifting, The New Face of Anti-Aging

Cosmetic Acupuncture

I was skeptical when I signed up for a post graduate training in Facial Rejuvenation- until the instructor picked ME as the guinea pig. Having just finished 3 grueling years of acupuncture study, I felt exhausted and I guess it was obvious I needed a lift!

This acupuncture treatment is an alternative to facelift surgery and injectable fillers. It is used by models and actors ( Cher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna), to maintain a more youthful looking appearance with virtually none of the risks of other cosmetic procedures.

Others realize that an acupuncture face lift works deeper to correct underlying conditions that contribute to aging such as hormonal imbalances, digestive problems and stress while treating the external signs of sagging and wrinkles – potentially erasing 5-10 years from the face. It is also a very relaxing way to spend an hour of your time.

I only had 2 treatments that week but I felt and observed that my skin became firmer, my eyelids less puffy and I felt a surge of energy for the days following the treatment. My daughter noticed that my skin tone was once again pink and glowing- a nice change from the ashen pallor I had before the treatment.

As a practitioner, I can say I LOVE helping someone return to their youthful looks with acupuncture. It is exciting and the effects can be noticed by others after the 6th or 7th treatment. For more information please visit my site

Anti-Inflammatory Eating

TCM has always recognized the value of anti-inflammatory foods.   Conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, allergies, most heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, bursitis and diabetes type 2 can all be affected by an inflammatory diet.  The same is true for some headaches, stomach aches, high blood pressure and obesity.

The top inflammatory culprits are : sugar, dairy, wheat, trans fats and poor quality cooking oils. Eliminating these things can only improve your health.  Keep in mind that smoking, alcohol, and STRESS also cause inflammation.

The following are general recommendations.  Consult your health care provider for details and before making drastic changes to your diet.


ferment your own vegetables




Sugar (including fruits and fruit juices) Refined starches-white bread (anything that is a white food), lactose, sucrose, fructose . Spikes blood sugar, causing inflammation. Use Stevia as a sweetener.Try sweet potatoes instead of white.
Dairy Products(Yogurt, milk, cheese, ice cream) Leads to mucus forming conditions such as frequent common colds, allergies, and sinus infections as well as abdominal pain – bloating. Switch to almond or coconut milk. Do NOT use SOY milk or tofu. These are processed products that inhibit thyroid functioning.
Wheat The gluten in wheat and in other grains is highly inflammatory Switch to rice / quinoa, buckwheat. Commercial Gluten-Free Products often contain high amounts of sugar.
Tans Fats Trans fat is in processed foods such as fast foods, fried foods, anything that comes in a box. To eliminate completely.
Cooking oils Soy, corn, canola, and sunflower contain ingredients that increase inflammatory responses in the body. Use coconut oil for cooking at high temperatures.  Cold-pressed olive oil for salads.

DO eat PLENTY of vegetables, especially in stews, soups and stir-frys. Raw vegetables can pose digestive problems so learn how to ferment vegetables for a probiotic boost.  It’s easy and fun! And I promise to write a post on how to do that sometime before the summer is over.

TCM does not recommend pure vegetarianism. In moderation, eat grass-fed, hormone-free meats and wild game and fish.  Eat organic eggs and small quantities of fruit.  Use high quality fish oil supplements. They are anti-inflammatory and can protect against heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

There are specific dietary recommendations according to your health diagnosis, be it Yang deficiency, Yin Deficiency, Blood deficiency, Qi deficiency, Qi Stagnation, Phlegm Excess, etc.  Ask about yours.
