 Summer 2013
Anshen News
Dear Friends and Clients,

Late summer is the Earth season in Chinese medicine. Animals may have hot spots, itching, "scratches" in horses or upset stomachs due to damp heat. Cooling and damp draining foods include celery, clams, turnips, seaweed and kelp. Cats and dogs can't digest vegetables unless they are cooked or pureed. This is a lovely recipe for carnivores who run hot and damp in the summer.


Dr. Xie's Hot Dog Recipe


4 oz fish (sardine, crab, catfish, shark or other deep ocean fish)

          If fish not available then use rabbit, goose, turkey or beef

4 oz tofu

4 oz brown rice or buckwheat or barley

2 cups of one or a mix of the following:   Broccoli, spinach, celery, kelp

2 tsp olive oil or coconut oil or fish oil

2 tsp honey

1 tsp bone meal


Feed about 20-30% more than you would feed dry. For instance, if you normally feed 1 cup then feed 1 � cups. Vegetables need to be pureed or cooked. Do not cook bone meal. Feed at room temperature or add hot water to warm it up so it does not damage Stomach Yin.


Doc's Story
Doc is a 24 year old Quarter Horse that loves Dr. Jody and his acupuncture treatments. He appears to fall asleep with every treatment, that is how relaxed he gets. Also appears to be a happier, healthier horse after his treatments. We appreciate your excellent care and concern.

 Rocky's Story



Rocky is our 8 year old German Shepherd that has dealt with severe hip dysplasia all of his life. We tried many different steps to help him. No matter what we tried, he still would struggle with his pain. We had never had a puppy that did not want to go for walks with us. For almost 6 years, we have needed to give him pain medication for most of his days. When he was really hurting, he would need to be on pain medication for several days. Our daughter suggested we look into acupuncture for him. We were so fortunate to find ANSHEN right away. For over a year Rocky has been receiving acupuncture about every 4-5 weeks. It has truly been a blessing. He has only needed a pain pill a couple of times and that was due to ice and squirrels. One time we waited 6 weeks before getting him in for his acupuncture and we noticed he was limping. We knew that waiting 6 weeks was too long a time. Fortunately, we had the treatment and he was back to being a happy playful dog. We know that without acupuncture, Rocky's quality of life would not be good. Because of the treatments, he is having a very good life, enjoying walks and playing with his toys.


Thank you ANSHEN for helping Rocky so he can have a full life.

Grooming our animal friends is not just a day at the spa but a necessity.  Some of us are lucky to be able to groom our animals at home while others need a professional.  Groomers make our friends more comfortable by making sure their coats are not matted (which creates Damp Heat), keeping their nails trimmed and they may even find a new lump that should be checked out by your regular veterinarian.
