Today Is The Day

Uncategorized Dec 08, 2012

Today can be the first day of renewed attention on your health. 

So often people wait for a specific moment or event to start or restart attempts to improve their health.  But why wait, every day is a new beginning and every
action no matter how small is amazing and significant. 

So even if today you just drink one more glass of water or eat a few more vegetables it is an accomplishment and it matters!

Focusing on the Light

Uncategorized Dec 06, 2012

This time of year, people seem to become very hard on themselves.  
I see it in the patients I sit with, many feeling anxious, and pressured and overly fatigued.  This end of year season should not fill us with anxiety, it should fill us with hope. In the Chinese calender this is the most yin month of the year.  Yin is the darkness, cold, stillness and quiet.  And culminating at the 21st, this is the most dark, cold, still, and yin month.  Yet, in that darkness and stillness lies a promise of light, and warmth and return.

Being mindful of the return of the light in all aspects of our lives will enhance and propel us into the next months with strength and purpose.  Instead of running from the cold and dark, embrace it, sit in stillness every day, breathing deeply, and finding appreciation for the quiet and darkness because they give us time to rest.  Biologically there is great purpose in being still during the winter, it preserves and replenishes...

Treating Bipolar Disorder

Uncategorized Nov 17, 2012

Bipolar disorder affects 2.3 million Americans. The mood fluctuations, depression and accompanying fatigue, sleep problems and occasional body pain can drastically affect every aspect of ones life. Many people struggle to find an appropriate treatment protocol, often moving from one drug to another, and investing years in counseling, doctor visits and missed work.
What most are never told by their Psychiatrists is that there are good natural medical alternatives to conventional treatment that can be used safely in conjunction with traditional therapy or independent of it.

Before beginning any natural medical treatment, do research to ensure that you are working with a qualified practitioner. Naturopathic Medical Doctors are qualified practitioners who have spent four years in medical school learning the basic medical sciences and spending two years in supervised clinical training. Although Michigan does not license naturopathic physicians, there are web sites that such as ...

A More Natural Course

Doctor focuses patients on education, nutrition

After Rev. Linda Lowery suffered deep-tissue injuries and muscle problems following a February 2006 car accident, she said doctors told her she was going to have to live with excruciating pain.

Since she found Breathing Waters Health Center in Plymouth Township some six months later, Lowery said she's feeling much better.

I love this place; it's a God-send," said Lowery, a minister in outreach ministries around metro Detroit. "Where there was hopelessness, there is hope. There is no more despair."

Lowery attributes that to Breathing Waters' owner, Dr. Julie TwoMoon, who opened the center in May 2006. TwoMoon, 31, is a naturopathic doctor who believes many health problems suffered by people are caused by an over-indulgence in food and medication, along with nicotine and alcohol.

TwoMoon, a 2003 graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Ore., thinks doctors...

Ten Guidelines for Ultimate Health

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2012
  1. Recognize the places where fear limits your decisions and seek out support and resources to limit its influence.
  2. Visualize and maintain an image of yourself healthy, strong, capable and able to accomplish all of your goals
  3. Eat foods that are close to their source, that have imbibed the sun and that still retain the character they had when alive.
  4. Use your body for movement, every day, even when your mind tries to give excuses not to.
  5. Place yourself in nature as often as you can, breathing deeply, walking barefoot and sitting quietly, absorbing the lessons found there.

Importance of Detoxification

Introduction to Toxicity

Toxicity cannot be ignored as a primary instigating factor in health decline. Everyone has previous and ongoing toxin exposure. Chemical elements are in our food, water, furniture, carpet, paint, cleaning supplies, fragrances, the air and even our clothes. Complete avoidance cannot be done. That being said, it is imperative that our bodies be properly supported so that we can deal with, safely process and remove as much of these compounds as possible. This process requires properly functioning lymphatic, liver, kidney and digestive systems, something not commonly found in most people.


Imagine, if you have been exposed to a multitude of chemicals every day of your life and then, in addition, you don’t always eat the right foods, sometimes you sleep too little, sometimes too much, you don’t always exercise, your life has excessive and ever-expanding stress and more often than not, you always have more to do than you have time for. The above...

Nutritional Support, Acupuncture and Cerebral Palsy, by Dr. Julie TwoMoon

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2012

Nutritional needs are determined by a few key factors. First, the overall stress burden on the body, second the digestive ability of the body and third previous exposure to diminished nutrient quality. People living with cerebral palsy have an increased need for adequate nutrition because of the increased stress burden of the body and because the multiple interventions common among people with this condition create an environment of diminished digestive ability. Essential nutrition must begin at birth and then be considered a critical part of all ongoing care. There are five basic rules of optimal nutrition that can be paired with four basic supplementation guidelines and the use of acupuncture that will magnify and improve overall health, energy, inflammatory response and quality of life in most people living with CP. The guidelines do not vary much from the optimal nutritional needs of all people; however, when there is a greater need in the body, it is essential for good...

Walsh Remains in Pain, but Winning Ways Don't Wane

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2012

By David Leon Moore


BEIJING — Kerri Walsh's and Misty May-Treanor's waltz through pool play in their quest for the first repeat gold medal in Olympic beach volleyball history might have looked routine. It wasn't.
In fact, nothing this summer has been routine for Walsh, who is in more pain and has had more worries about her right shoulder than she normally lets on.

Though the gregarious Walsh is, in public, perpetually smiley-faced and provides more happy talk than Mister Rogers, she wasn't so cheery on that van one early morning in June in Berlin on her way to play a semifinal in her first international tournament of the year.

Walsh had taken a brief break from the AVP Tour schedule because of recurring soreness in the shoulder on which she had surgery in November to repair a torn rotator cuff.

In Berlin, two months before the Games, she was in agony while riding to a match she wasn't sure she could finish.

It was then that she began to receive treatment from an...

The Cost of Health

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2012

How much is your health worth to you?
In real terms, place a monetary value on your health. Consider all the aspects of your health that you value: energy, weight loss, cardiovascular fitness, disease prevention, freedom from pain, sleep quality, and even emotional state.
Really think about your health, the only asset you will control over the course of your entire life and the only factor that determines how you are able to spend your time. The most valuable asset you have is your health.

I love to read magazines about all of the hottest trends in society. I find it interesting and entertaining. The one thing I notice time and time again is that people will spend money on maintaining the illusion of health before they will spend money to maintain real health. By this, I mean botox, hair removal, skin dermabrasion, plastic surgery, diet pills, and thousands of dollars of supplements that they do not even need. People are more willing to dedicate hours of their time to pursuits that...

December 2008 Body Mind Spirit Article By Dr. TwoMoon

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2012

December always marks a large change for many of us.
It is a month filled with activity and celebration and lots and lots of excess. Between buying a gift for every person that has been a part of your life over the previous year was not enough, we also spend more time running around, start feeling the chill of winter descend into our bodies and overindulge in food and treats of all kinds.

However, holidays don’t have to mean going off the deep end, rather they can mean a getting back to basics and celebrating our fortunes big and small. Take an inventory of the blessings the fill your life early in the holiday season. Instead of focusing on what you want or worrying about the endless lists of “must-haves” make a list of the basic joys that fill your life. Keep it simple like being grateful for your favorite sweater, a good book on your shelf, for a rerun of your favorite holiday movie. Remember that being thankful is the most powerful blessing you can give...
