Women On TikTok Are Sharing The Wildest Things Male Medical Professionals Have Said To Them, And It’s Enough To Make Your Blood Boil

Sadly, this is not an uncommon conversation in my office. I recently had a new patient who said to me “I feel so validated in my experience now”. Just because we don’t have a label for or don’t know what’s wrong doesn’t mean that nothing is wrong it just means we haven’t figured it out yet. I will always listen, believe, and try to figure out with you a strategy, that’s my promise ❤️

In 2012 I had the absolute honour and awe-inspiring opportunity to visit Juno Beach and tour the surrounding area with a guide who told us stories compiled from research, books, and firsthand stories from D-Day and WWII. I am forever humbled, changed and THANKFUL for the men and women who fought and gave their lives so that we can live the free lives we have today. The final picture is my great great uncle Jimmy, a sailor in the Navy during WWII. Lest we forget.

October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month and Today, October 15 is pregnancy and infant loss awareness day. 1 in 4 pregnancies will result in loss. Whether it is at 6 weeks when you are just becoming aware there is another life present to 40+ weeks when you have had time to get to know them, the loss is devastating and we still aren’t talking about it. I am always here to sit through the pain with you. I may never understand but I can always empathize and hold space to grieve and find peace. Please don’t be 1 in 4 alone and in silence. #infantloss #iamhere #acupuncture #ygk

With the kids starting back to school today there has been a LOT of anxiety, tension, fear and the unknown lingering in the air. There is no “right” decision right now, everyone has to do what is best for them and their family. But remember, these little people are WAY more intuitive than their adult counterparts.. if you are scared, they are scared. If you are brave, kind, patient.. you see where I’m going with this? Everyone is trying their best with what we are given. Sending love and calming vibes to all the parents, kids, teachers, administrators, frontline and service workers and everyone else out there ❤️

I have a feeling once everything starts opening I will be seeing a lot more anxiety symptoms on my table.. a lot of people think anxiety is full on panic attacks but often it is more subtle than that.. how do you help cope with some of your anxieties? Deep breathing, petting a dog or cat, reading a book or doing some enjoyable form of exercise are all great ways to combat some of the anxieties we can all experience from time to time. 📸: @passionplanner

I was really hoping today I would have the good news that we were able to open our doors again, but it seems our health services are still on mandated restriction. I have been pretty quiet around here during this whole social distancing mostly because I myself have been struggling with the ups and downs and emotions of it. I absolutely cannot wait to get back into my office and help all of my lovely people again and i KNOW when we get back to being allowed into public spaces in a more normal capacity people are going to NEED the mind, body, soul approach that acupuncture gives. The end is in sight and know that I am here and will be here for all you lovely people when this is over

In all of the craziness of the last couple of weeks I have not gotten around to posting that I made it to the voting stage for the Kingston communityvotes! Voting ends in a couple of days but since we are all socially isolating and spending all our time on our phones anyways, I would love it if you took a few moments from your day to vote!!

Because What’s scarier to some people than an impending period?

Happy Halloween! But if this is you, we should talk! Period’s don’t have to be something you fear. The Chinese thought of their periods as a trusty friend, coming to visit once a month and if it was not a smooth visit it was information that things were not properly balanced in the body. #acupuncture #happyperiods #endometriosis #pcos #heathy #ygk #ygkacupuncturist

One of the things you hear over and over in business is to never discuss politics... but exercising the rights we worked so hard to get is SO important. If you aren’t planning on voting I urge you to take one of the short voting surveys to see which candidate best aligns with your personal views and priorities and take the time to cast a ballot- this afternoon it took me no more than 5 minutes, and you have until late tonight to decide. Whatever your vote is, it matters! #ygk #vote #politics #womenshealth #educationmatters

Who else needed to see this today? It seems like the last month has been a rough one for a lot of people coming into the office (we’ve been blaming mercury in retrograde but yesterday was the first day out of it and it seemed like so many things happened! ). This is your reminder to be gentle- with yourself, with your activities, with your mind, with your spouse, with whatever you have been trying to force or push lately! Leading into a long weekend we all could use a little gentle! #ygk #ygkacupuncture

I was in Starbucks today and the girls in there were talking about what would be the first thing they would haunt/possess if they were a ghost. It was hilarious and silly and got me thinking! Some of them went the petty route and said they would haunt someone they don’t like by turning their electronics on in the middle of the night, another said they would possess a certain political figure and quit their job 😏. What would be the first thing you did if you were a ghost? Answer in the comments! #ygk #acupuncture #foodforthought #silly

One of my very smart colleagues just shared this post about coffee and I couldn’t possibly say it better than her, so read away!

Is coffee a part of your routine? ☕️ Trust me, I get it, and I’m not here to say don’t drink it. Coffee actually has medicinal properties in Chinese Medicine! 👉 In fact, how you respond to coffee doesn’t just depend on how much you drink, but your *Constitution*! 👈 What’s that? ⠀

Your Constitution describes what makes you different: how your body uniquely responds to your environment, stress, illness, etc. It reflects what imbalances you are prone to developing 🧬 ⠀

So, back to coffee! Its flavor profile is bitter and slightly sweet. It’s drying and known as a purgative. Because of its warming nature that causes the Qi to rise, we say it gives the body “artificial yang” energy 💥⠀

If you are sensitive to coffee or not, obviously moderation is ideal. But did you know there are ways to tweak how you take your coffee to make it more beneficial? ⠀

☑️ So! Here are some ways to prepare coffee based on your Constitution:⠀

☕️ Qi Stagnation 😡/Yang Rising🤯: If you are prone to health issues that have a rising nature to them (moodiness, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, etc.) try adding some coconut or MCT oil to your coffee to give it more substance, anchor the rising Qi, and reduce it’s agitating side effects.⠀

☕️ Blood/Yin Deficiency🥀: If you’re prone to Dryness (skin/hair/eyes), brittle nails, joint pain from degeneration, night-sweats, have a light/absent period, you can also benefit from MCT or even collagen (my favorite is @vitalproteins) in your coffee to provide some added yin-moisture, amino acids, and nourishment. ⠀

☕️ Yang Deficiency🥶: If you have pain that is cold-sensitive, have poor circulation, or run cold, especially to the point where layers don’t help, definitely keep the coffee hot and add some warming spices like cinnamon, cardamom, or cloves to the mix. Skip the ice. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
☕️ Phelgm🌫/Dampness💦: If you get easily congested, have brain-fog, sluggish digestion, keep the coffee warm and try to use the least amount of syrups/sugar you can to take care of that sweet tooth. ⠀

As always, seek out a Licensed Acupuncturist to make the most appropriate suggestions for you.⠀

Have you heard of acupuncture for “induction”? While I don’t love calling it induction because you cant force a babe that’s not ready to be born, we can help prep the body for birth, boosting energy and stimulating the uterine muscles for contraction. I find with a lot of moms coming to me to get labour started they often need to both feel like they have control over the fact that they are trying everything, but also they just need some of those endorphins to chill the heck out! Babies are so in tune to mamas feelings after living in them for 40 weeks, they can tell if the conditions are not ideal to enter the world and would prefer to do it peacefully! #induction #acupuncture #maternalacupuncture #stressrelief #endorphins #kingstonacupuncture #ygk

Does this look familiar? Tears at the littlest things, cramping, fatigue, heavy bleeding? All of my life (that I can remember) there are little jokes and sayings telling women that we just have to deal with symptoms of our periods, or take birth control to “regulate” our hormones. What if I said in Chinese Medicine we absolutely disagree? Our periods tell us a LOT about our overall health if we take the time to listen. This is why I get all excited when we come to the gynaecology portion of the intake because so many people when asked “how are your periods” say they’re fine or “normal” but when prompted come up with a slew of symptoms they were told to just deal with. If this sounds like you, we need to talk! #takebackourperiods #notnormal #normalizemenstruatiom #periods #ygk #acupuncture #chinesemedicine #kingstonacupuncture #regulate #womenshealth #fertility

Sometimes you have to take self-care literally! After a weekend of overall not eating well and not resting I was feeling a little run down and stuffy. I had a break in the schedule and I popped a few needles in to help clear up some of the congestion I was feeling. Bonus points that some of the points also help with those fine lines one starts to see on the down side of 30 😏

Happy First day of Spring!! In Chinese Medicine the season of spring is associated with birth, sprouting of new plant life and coming out of hibernation. This is a great time to actually commit to those new years fitness resolutions and get outside in the air. The season is associated energetically with the liver-gallbladder organs of the body, which when are functioning correctly govern the smooth flow of energy and blood in the body, but when they arent can cause a huge variety of problems in the body: 🌷irritability 🌷floaters in the eye 🌷PMS symptoms, cramping, breast tenderness 🌷muscle tension and pain 🌷heartburn 🌷high blood pressure and so much more! Treat your liver right this spring by remaining or becoming more active on a daily basis, choosing more naturally sour foods that support the liver and gallbladder such as lemon/citrus and reducing stress ! #acupuncture #ygkacupuncture #chinesemedicine #ygk 📷: @sherryjeffery
