Good health is a state of optimal physical, mental and emotional well-being that enables us to respond appropriately to all kinds of stressors ,while maintaining a state of internal equilibrium. It goes beyond the absence of acute or chronic illness. The source of the disease can be any challenge to the body which creates disharmony, be it environmental, physical, and /or emotional. Unfortunately, most people pay little attention to their state of health until it is compromised.

I recommend “wellness check-ups” just as we routinely perform dental check-ups. Dis-ease can only ensue when the body is out of balance as a result of weakened immunity, exhausted resources, or the obstruction of the free flow of life energy (QI) which animates every living cell.

Mental and Emotional Aspects of the Lungs

As an acupuncturist, I am constantly assessing. Before my patients answer a single question, I am taking in cues as to what types of imbalances might be going on. In five-element acupuncture, the five major organ systems are the kidney, liver, lung, heart and spleen. When any of these systems are out of balance, certain physical, mental and
