A heart at peace gives life to the body  - Proverbs 14:30

When we carry stress and unresolved emotions, they can affect our appetite, upset our stomach, and affect our digestion. Traditional Chinese medicine and Western herbalism all consider digestion to be the cornerstone of well-being so the two are intimately connected.

At Tao Natural Healing, we use acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutrition to support the body/mind systems in their own natural healing processes.  

We put extensive focus on nutrition as a basic pillar of foundational healing. This approach prioritizes three basic integrative steps in a person's pathway to long lasting health and vitality: a) awareness practices, b) mindful movement including yoga, Tai Ji and Qi Gong, and c) nutrition based on regional, unrefined (whole) foods.  

This is the philosophy and basis of Paul Pitchford's landmark book, Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition.  We also have several programs on the mind-body connection, meditation, healing circles and visual imagery as a basis for healing and removing blockages that may be impeding health or fertility.

One of the key cornerstones to optimal health and well-being is a healthy gut which is essential to the absorption of vitamins and minerals from our foods as well as healthy elimination of waste.  As a clinical nutritionist certified in the Standard Process line of food-based nutritional supplements and detoxification programs, I use their products both personally and professionally for my patients.  

Part of our Nutrition consult involves education and support on how to eat in a way that promotes your best health, aids in proper weight management and is sustainable in today's busy, modern world.

Many times, we begin with purification.  What is is and why do I need purification? Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight . We are exposed to external toxins on a daily basis . These include pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals . Internally, our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function . Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened . Purification offers your body additional support to expel and metabolize these toxins and manage weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality .

Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions: ƒ  

*Stuffy head ƒ  *Fatigue or difficulty sleeping ƒ  *Weight gain

*Food cravings*Indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset ƒ

*Reduced mental clarity ƒ  *Low libido ƒ  *Skin that’s not looking its best ƒ
