Trust is the magic

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2017

What if your body had a template for Divine perfection that has been trying to express itself, that's waiting to express itself, that is actually the key to your sustainable, vibrant energy, vitality, hormonal balance, all of it?

What if, because the medical model, and I'm talking natural medicine, Conventional Medicine, and health coaching...what if they're all so focused on mastering just the biochemistry or just the mindset, that they'll never teach you how to initiate the expression of that Divine perfection because it's not in their model?

See, I used to look at medicine that way, I started out as a kid being taught about that innate perfection. But then society took over and when we don't feel well, people go immediately to the biochemistry, to the organ systems, they go immediately to hormonal systems, and then we get locked into that paradigm and we begin to forget.

I remember that the first day I ever sat in a Chinese medicine lecture, the conversation was really...

Spring And Your Health

Classical Chinese Medicine, Spring And Your Health

Spring is generally regarded as a happy season, especially for those that live in areas where winter is cold and dark. It brings with it longer days, more sunshine, rebirth of plants, and more activity. But for many, the months of spring can also bring irritability, anxiety, sinus issues, allergy flare-ups, and even colds.

Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) has been around for 3,000 + years, which gives the medical system a lot of credibility. CCM classifies things in many ways. For example, there are five seasonal associations - winter, spring, summer, late summer, and fall. Each season with its own unique set of properties and associations as well. Spring is associated with the wood element. The wood element governs the liver and the gallbladder and their energetic pathways. This dynamic interplay of seasonal change and the corresponding elements work to create balance and harmony or chaos, all depending on how we care for ourselves...

The Gallbladder

Uncategorized Apr 16, 2017

The gallbladder is one of the most commonly treated yang organ energetic systems we address with acupuncture. I say yang because each system in Chinese medicine is designated as either yin or yang. Very generally speaking, the yin organ systems store vital substances, whereas yang organ systems fill and empty themselves dynamically. Every in organ system is paired with a yang organ system and vice versa. In modern acupuncture practice, most acupuncturists pay a lot of attention to the yin organ systems, but in truth, addressing patterns and flow in yang systems can hold vital keys to our healing.
The gallbladder is one such system, it is the yang counterpart to the yin organ, the liver. Now, it is important to note that from a Chinese Medicine perspective, when we talk about a particular organ, such as the liver, heart, or gallbladder, we are not talking about the physical organ.. Rather, we are talking about a complex system of energy that flows within particular pathways and has a...

Should I Stop Eating Gluten?

Uncategorized Apr 03, 2017

Should I stop all gluten if I want to be healthy?

A common question, and a good one too. I suppose the idea of being Gluten-free has gained enough steam that many have come to believe that eliminating Gluten from their diet might be the most significant effort for their long-term health. To which I say: maybe.

Gluten is the protein aspect of certain grains, the most common of which are: wheat, oats, rye, and barley.  In some people, namely those with Celiac disease, this protein causes severe and debilitating inflammation in the digestive tract, which extends then to the joints, brain, muscles, nervous system, and hormonal systems.  This is an immune response, and it is serious.  Now, the incursion of the Celiac diagnosis into modern life has grown dramatically over the past 10 years.  This appears to be significantly related to stress, which alters non-coding gene segments, which is then passed onto future generations.  This stress can come in many forms:...

Your Heart: Stress, Nourishment and Balance

Uncategorized Feb 02, 2017

One of the most fascinating attributes of the Chinese Medicine system is how each organ has physical and mental, emotional, and spiritual and seasonal qualities. Since it is the Hallmark month of love, let's explore the Heart.

The heart season is summer, and heart is considered the most yang: warm, bountiful and abundant. Yang is what is bright, moving, outward, hot, and loud. Yin is what is more inward, still, dark, and cool. The heart is associated with the color red, and with warm seasons, it's resonant flavor is bitter (which is actually the true flavor of chocolate) and it’s paired organ is the small intestine (interestingly, many urinary issues are due to “heart fire” heat descending). The sense organ aligned with the heart is the tongue. Its sound is laughing, and its emotion is joy.

The heart houses what is known as the shen, which can be loosely translated to mean the spirit, consciousness, the mind of the soul. In Classical Chinese Medicine, it is said...

The Kidney, A Chinese Medicine Understanding

Uncategorized Feb 02, 2017

The Many Dimensions Of The Kidney

In the practice of Acupuncture, we understand the body as a complex interplay of energy systems, meridians and organs. However, when an acupuncturist talks about an organ, like the spleen, heart, or kidneys, they are not referring to the physical organ that sits inside your body, but rather the energetic side of these organs. This facet of the organ is much bigger than just the physical, and governs dynamic attributes within the body on many levels.

The kidney system is one of the most important of these energetic organ systems.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys represent the deepest, most fundamental levels of energy in the human body. They are said to be the root of yin and yang - two fundamental forces at play in our physiology. The kidneys also store a substance called “essence” that is our genetic code, our life force, and our reproductive ability.

The kidneys in Chinese Medicine are related to the water element,...

Ancestral Inheritance: Trauma and Blessings

Uncategorized Nov 09, 2016

I suppose now, more than ever, we as a world are tuned in to a need for healing, a need to connect and be restored. But sometimes, this is a frightening place to land, because the need is so huge and the obstacles appear so large. What we must remember, what we cannot forget is our ancestors, no matter what their circumstances, no matter what their patterns were, in fact, holding space for our placement now. For what else can it be we are here to do other than heal?  Listen to Dr. Julie speak about our role in the healing of the world we live in, and the unlimited blessings held within us all the time.

The Acupuncture Reset Button

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2016

I often laughingly say I spend my day giving people medicinal naps. It’s a joke but profoundly true, as Acupuncture…which I spend most days facilitating, if done right can really press our reset button, something from what I can see, we as a population are in desperate need of.

It’s a sad fact that in our modern life, we rarely stop and just be still. In fact, just the other day, I had two separate conversations with patients about the lack of time in their lives for simple stopping. Burdened under a litany of “should do’s” and “must do’s” many find their day racing along, finally almost screeching to a halt around 9 or 10 when they concede that yes, tomorrow will come all too soon and it must be time to crawl in bed.

So, how do we navigate this unwieldy terrain of modern responsibility? I suppose our collective rates of coffee, beer, and sugar consumption are one way…not the most-healthy or balanced but certainly a way....

How Do I Know My Activation Is Working?

Uncategorized Sep 30, 2015

How do I know my activation is working? 

I get asked all the time "How do I know my activation is working?" after all, there are no lab tests we can run, no specific markers or indicators as to effect so how can we know it works?  To this, I often ask the following questions:

Have you had shifting in your physical body in the form of symptom changes? Or even episodes of worsening of pain, digestion, energy, sleep, hormones, or any other old symptoms?  

Have you had changes to your life patterns including but not limited to increased revenue in your business? New job or a better job environment? More clients, easier time generating business, more productivity, more creativity? 

Have you had changes within valued relationships? This can emerge as the ending of toxic relationships or the emergence of stronger ties within those of great value but often there are perceived changes. 

Have you seen Improvements in mental state?

Regenetics versus other DNA Activations

Uncategorized Sep 08, 2015

When I found Regenetics, I had never heard the term DNA activations, and now almost 2 years later, the term, practice, and experience is a cornerstone to not only my professional life but to my own deep healing and transformation.  That being said, I have to assume most people have no idea what this term references and have really realized recently just how confusing a simple internet search of DNA activation can be.  Prompted by my husband asking me to define how what I offer is different from what else is out there, I spent a day reading websites of those who offer DNA activations which are not part of the Regenetics series and what I found was not only surprising, but in some cases alarming.  
I have to say, I have not received any of the healing methods defined by others as DNA healing, and furthermore, have no intention to do so. I am biased towards Regenetics because in my personal journey and in what I have observed in others, it is a method which...
