Parkinson’s disease is caused by degeneration of the brain cells which use the neurotransmitter dopamine to smooth our movement, help our learning ability and influence our mood. Currently the medication L-dopa can help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s diseases such as tremor, rigidity, difficulty of walking and mood changes. But the medication cannot stop the degeneration of the nerve cells in the brain. When majority of the neurons lost function, the medication will not work anymore. Furthermore, the medication can have some side effect such as improper behavior. READ MORE »
The Chinese have been using the 5000 year old treatment of acupuncture to treat infertility, indigestion, joint pain and many other chronic problems; but now it has become popular in Western countries too. If you reside in Palm Beach County or other surrounding counties and face infertility problems, visit acupuncture in Delray Beach. The acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be used to help you improve your ovarian function and get healthy eggs and sperm.
Acupuncture is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine and is said to have originated there before the Common Era. Early documents show that acupuncture started appearing in China around about 100 BCE. Acupuncture was used in conjunction with herbs, moxibustion, diet, and massage in Chinese medicine. Practitioners continued to refine it over the ages, and in the 1950s, research by Professor Han in Beijing established certain scientific criteria behind this treatment.
Last Sunday, we had a great time at Greenlands Health & Wellness in Delray Beach talking to people about stress reduction using herbal teas and acupuncture. Not only was the group well informed and knowledgeable, we were able to swap experiences in what kinds of methods help us reduce stress. We learned a lot just listening to our audience members and gleaned new ideas for stress reduction from their stories!
If you were unable to attend this talk, there are other chances! We have another free lecture coming up on Sunday, June 12 at the Whole Foods Market in Pompano Beach! This time, Dr. Li Zheng will be covering her favorite topic: inflammation. Inflammation has garnered much attention in recent years, including long exposes in publications such as the New Yorker. It is implicated in many illnesses from tendonitis to colitis. However, because inflammation can be chronic and invisible until it causes a severe disease, we often ignore the signs until it is too late.
In this class, Dr. Zheng will teach you how to recognize the signs of inflammation and protect yourself from inflammatory diseases using herbal teas and acupuncture. This event is free but space is limited, so make sure to pre-register today. We look forward to seeing you there!

In recent months, we have received many phone calls about using acupuncture to lose weight.
In an ideal world, patients would come for full body acupuncture 2-3 times a week for 3 months to help them rebalance their bodies’ metabolism to lose weight and keep weight off. However, if money and time is an issue, we recommend that patients use ear needles.
