Sometimes newspaper opinion generates the cream of community-thinking, which, in truth, is what it’s supposed to do. And, another plus: Readers’ constructive input drown out the belly-aching from tweeter-types.

Recently, I came across the quote from the Chinese philosopher Lao-Tze: “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become your character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”
When it was time for Ahwatukee Foothills resident Michelle Milich to get a new dog she figured an American Bulldog, known for no major health problems and low grooming, would be a good choice. She had a family member looking to get rid of an American Bulldog and the timing seemed like fate, but looking back Milich had no idea what fate had in store.
In the 1990s valuable medical research began to appear on using acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with patients doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). What was known for thousands of years with patients not having Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is that Chinese medicine increases a couple’s chance of getting pregnant. With a German study being published in 2002 they found that it increased the patients success up to 60 percent. After this study many countries, including America, have conducted their own studies. Over and over again the results are the same. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs increase the percentage rate of a woman’s chance in getting pregnant.
So much of Chinese medicine is linked to how our emotions are connected to our health and well being. In fact the very fundamentals of Chinese medicine are reflected in the five elemental theory. This theory states each major organ has a specific emotion that affects it. It also states that out of that negative emotion can come a positive drive. For instance, at one point in my life I got angry with the way that I was being treated as a patient. I was also upset that there were no options to help me in my condition. If that wouldn’t of happened I would have never thought of becoming a health care provider. Out of that anger came a passion to help others in their healing process.
Lately I have been hearing people claim that they are a “foody.” Initially, I had thought that term meant they are a fan of food. To me that was kind of funny because should we not all be fans of food? Our bodies need it and we all seem to be a fan of it from infancy and beyond. Ask any mother. Although the term “foody” according to the dictionary is, “a person having an enthusiastic interest in the preparation and consumption of good food.” Now that I can get on board with.
If you haven’t read it already, do pick up a copy of “The Day You Were Born” by Debra Frasier. My daughter’s godparents gave us the book when she was born, and it is sweet and awesome and makes me cry every time I read it.
You see them all over - scraggly-looking desert bushes that
smell like turpentine after rain. Native tribal people here used
them safely and effectively for thousands of years for a wide
variety of ills, including colds and flu, viral infections of all
sorts, and even cancer.
