“Sarah has been helping me to lose weight. I’ve been struggling with my weight for most of my life, and wanted to try something different. Not only does she give me acupuncture treatments, but she also gives me food therapy advice and makes suggestions for things I can try at home. This way I can […]
Since allergies seem to be worse this year, remember to use your neti pot (we sell beautiful ones at the clinic!) and eat more bitter green vegetables. They are in season in the spring and help clean out the toxins that have become stagnant in your body over the winter. Bitter greens include artichoke, arugula, […]
With the early spring weather fluctuations, many people are experiencing seasonal allergies already. One of the ways to help your body fight back is to eat more bitter green vegetables.

In January, we attended 15 hours of training for Acupuncturists Without Borders, where we learned more about using ear acupuncture and the NADA Protocol. This technique was developed to treat addiction (including smoking, alcoholism, and street drugs), but can be applied to a wide range of conditions. It uses 5 needles in the ear and is […]
With chapters 1 and 2 finished on our food therapy book, we’re stepping up to make the writing go faster. Our timeline is to have the first draft completed by next summer, so we can get final revisions done by the end of next year! The first chapter discusses the basic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine food therapy and our weight loss and digestion patients love it. We also finished the second chapter on Dampness and Phlegm. Next week we’re looking forward to starting the chapter on foods that calm the mind (to help with stress, irritability, and anxiety) and foods to uplift the mind (to help with depression and melancholy). This is one of our most exciting chapters because mental health is what we’re super passionate about here at Beautiful Ama. We do sell the chapters of our book to our patients as pamphlets, so make an appointment if you’re interested in learning more!
I’m so excited about the Holistic Weight Loss Program that I’ve developed as a collaborative effort with Senia at Healing InSight that I can’t sleep. We start with acupuncture, herbs, and food therapy (of course) and include other perks like weigh-ins, measurements, lifestyle coaching, books, and things you can do at home to increase your metabolism and lose that weight. Recently we’ve expanded the program to include a 7 day weight loss detox, meal ideas, and new chapters of the food therapy books we’re writing. My patients love the program so much that after the initial 10 weeks, they’ve been requesting phase 2 so they can continue losing weight with the same support that has been so successful in phase 1. So we finally finished putting that together and we’re too excited to sleep!
