Happy New Year from Bartelt Acupuncture! As another year begins, resolutions are made, and to-do lists, and goals are created. Not sure where to begin? Here are 5 healthy goals to get you started:
1.) Get Healthier: Getting healthier is the #1 New Year’s resolution either by losing weight, exercising more, eating healthier, or quitting an addiction. Acupuncture, Asian herbs, and supplements can be helpful supportive aids in these goals.
2.) Manage Disease Naturally: A goal of many of our patients is to begin to take control over their health by decreasing the number of pharmaceuticals they take and, therefore; the side effects that they have from taking them. Evidence shows success in decreasing the number of pharmaceuticals taken with patients who suffer from chronic pain, headaches, nausea, knee pain, and more when using acupuncture.
3.) Contemplate: Winter is a yin season in Traditional Chinese Philosophy – a time of quietude and deep introspection. Start a meditation practice or deepen your existing one.
4.) De-Stress: Lose the stress in 2017! Diseases such as diabetes, depression, obesity, headaches, and Alzheimer’s disease can be linked to a stressful lifestyle.
5.) Take Time for Yourself and Your Health: Making your health your number one priority is the most important thing you can do for yourself. Take care of yourself as you would a close friend. When you are sick, get yourself well. Before you are unwell, prevent illness.
Our team at Bartelt Acupuncture is dedicated to assisting our patients in making 2017 a year of committed health and wellness. Take a look at these 5 supportive practices to make your resolutions or goals successes.
