Mushroom Chicken Soup
Indications: Boosts Qi & Blood deficiency leading to fatigue, dizziness, poor appetite, sore knees and lumbar, insomnia
Boosting Qi and Blood= Nourishing your vital flow of energy in your body and boosting red blood cells
2 free range drumsticks, chicken thighs would work as well
**10 small fresh shitake mushrooms
1 TBLS cooking wine
3 slices of ginger
6 cups of water
Cut drumsticks into one inch cubes, put in hot boiling water for two minutes to remove excess blood and scum. Rinse the chicken in cold water. (I don’t feel it is necessary to cut up the drumsticks. Just be aware of small bones or use boneless chicken.)
Put the chicken in a soup pot and bring the rest of the ingredients and prepared chicken in soup pot and bring to a boil then continue simmering for 40 mins.
Garnish with Gou Qi Zi aka Goji Berries and add ½ Tsp of salt at the end
Serve as warm meal. Once a day
** If you detest mushrooms because of texture, you can boil them and then strain them out of the water and just use the mushroom broth.
Community Acupuncture is every Saturday 10am-2pm, No appointment required
Price: $25, $30, or $35 choose your price tier on what you can afford
Community Acupuncture is a cost effective way to try out or receive acupuncture treatments. I treat up to five people at once in reclining chairs in our Zen den. You just come in and take a seat. Community acupuncture has grown into a community of its own. We often like to sit and talk before or after treatments and share a pot of tea. Many of our regulars have grown quite close.
The difference between community acupuncture and private appointments are the services offered and the areas of the body that I treat. Both options provide high quality treatments. If you are unsure if you need more individualized care, I am more than happy to talk with you to determine your needs and services required.
There are a few Saturdays yearly Community Acupuncture closes. I make that announcement on both my Facebook page: Wuji Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic or on Jacksonville Meet-up group: Reclaiming You
Homework? But, why?? Because you like you!
One way to keep your treatments working longer and to achieve personal health gains and inner balance quicker is to do some homework. It has been my experience that patients who go home and do their “homework” often will heal faster. As disclaimer, not everyone will get results. Patience is really a virtue. I know that sometimes that statement is really irritating, but it is true. I bring this up because this relates to your state of health and how long it took to reach of the state of health you are in. Continue reading “The Importance of Patient Homework”
I highly recommend The Tao of Nutrition to add to your library. This is great for beginners and for advanced individuals in the areas of nutrition and how to feed one’s self and your family. It has the food listed in alphabetical order and includes easy to make recipes and remedies.
I have been asked by many people how to begin to meditate. There are experts in the field, and I am definitely not an expert. What I know, I have learned from my Qi gong and Taiji Masters and also from personal experience. Continue reading “Meditation 101”
Breathing is an essential part of health and longevity, not to mention the obvious; we need it to live. The breathing homework is designed for you to take the time to be aware of your breathing throughout the day and take some mental notes. Continue reading “Breathing Homework”
