March is finally here!  After a winter of blizzards and bomb cycles, spring is particularly appreciated this year!

Blooming flowers and budding trees are a welcome sight, but if you suffer from seasonal allergies, the coming season can be one of discomfort rather than joy.  Essential oils like peppermint and lavender contain  antihistamines and anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms (call to us to stock up on your springtime oils!).   Acupuncture is another effective, drug-free way to help relieve sneezing, itching and watery eyes so you can enjoy a sniffle-free spring!   

Now that the warmer weather is on the horizon, carve time out of your busy day to take advantage of the longer days and get yourself back on track for summer.   Call our office and we'll help put the spring back in your step!

Thank you for allowing us to be part of your healthcare team.

Parkinson's Disease: Reducing Falls by Training the Brain

Have you ever experienced muscle stiffness, shakiness or dizziness during a brief illness?  For people living with Parkinson's Disease (PD), these are just some of the pervasive symptoms that make life a constant struggle for the more than 10 million people world-wide with this progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Medications are routinely used to manage some of the many symptoms of PD, but they oftentimes come with severe side effects; in addition, gait and balance issues that are common with PD are not responsive to the pharmacological approach, which increases the risk for falls and injury, and further health complications.

Recent studies have found neurofeedback therapy  to be successful in improving postural stability by helping to retrain, strengthen and calm the brain.  Creating healthy, functional brain-wave patterns enabled patients to achieve improved balance and gait in just eight sessions.

People living with Parkinson's often experience other comorbid conditions including  anxiety, depression and sleep disorders Neurofeedback has the added benefit of helping the brain to regulate mood and sleeping patterns, which helps increase quality of life for those with PD.

For more information on how to improve PD symptoms without medication, contact our office and schedule a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) brain map to determine whether you are a candidate for the BrainCore neurofeedback training program. We're offering $50 off an initial QEEG this month.  631.265.1223.

Essential Oils and Your Pets

"I love using my essential oils for my family...are they safe to use on my pet?"  is one of the most frequent questions we hear at the office. 

From shampoos, to pest repellents to ointments for minor irritations, Young Living's line of Animal Scents  essential oils are great for all sort of pets, whether they be furry or scaly, because they don't contain harmful synthetic ingredients.  You pet's size will determine the amount of oil that should be used and we do recommend that they be heavily diluted with water or a carrier oil and introduced in moderation.  As with anything new, be sure to carefully observe your pet's response.   Of course, never use oils near an animal's eyes or other delicate areas, and avoid "hot" oils like peppermint and wintergreen, as well as citrus oils for cats who can show sensitivity to these essentials oils.

Click here to check out the Animal Scents product line  and then call us to discuss which oils are best for your furry friend.  Helpful guidelines for use on your pet can be found on  Young Living's blog.
