Well I’m 3 days behind on my blog post promise I made on my e-newsletter. But the fact that I have not completely ignored my promise to myself (by way of my promise to you) is a great achievement because for me to write regularly on a blog is quite a commitment; one that I have avoided until just now. Hurrah for me.
The reason I want to write a blog is for the following reasons:
- I say stuff to patients in the clinic and folks often say to me, “you should let everyone know that.” So this is the way I’m going to let you know.
- There is stuff that I don’t say in the clinic that I think folks might want to know and so I’m going to let you know.
- I am quite curious (and somewhat nervous) about how all of this public communication and feedback system works in the blogosphere. My husband has a sometimes blog (actually it is quite neglected at this point) that he had some followers who were all over the world. While I don’t really care if people from all over the world read this, maybe somebody from somewhere else will read this. Hopefully though, interested parties will be from around Central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire; a radius of about 40 miles from my office here in Leominster.
- It is a great way for me force organize my thoughts. And on health, acupuncture and nutrition, I have lots of thoughts. And maybe you thoughts you would like to share as well.
But I feel that I will need to set some ground rules. The opinions and ideas expressed in this blog are my own. If you have some “gentle but critical feedback” I’m all ears. If you have not gentle but seriously critical feedback, I would prefer you email me instead if you feel the need to rant. If I get readers, they do not deserve to have to wade through all that and if you don’t see things as I do, I am plenty sure the internet is full of singers who are in your same choir. Go sing with that choir.
With that out of the way, my first topic of health interest is about when stress goes from being a helpful tool of survival to wreaking havoc on all your bodily systems creating symptoms like insomnia, bronchitis, autoimmune system disorders and a whole host of other problems that bring you into One World Acupuncture.
So I will be breaking down into bite size pieces (AKA separate blog posts) how stress affects your body and ways we can help you create a more manageable, and hopefully, more peaceful life. There is not one person I have met in my clinic who I do not think deserves feeling peace. Some people are better at hiding unhappiness than others but follow me down the path to learn more about what gets in the way of your path to peace and good health.
