Alleviating Anxiety with Acupuncture

0

Constant worry. Feeling nervous or on edge. Difficult concentration. Irritability. Insomnia. Fatigue. Muscle tension. These are some of the common symptoms of anxiety disorders as described by the National Institute of Mental Health.

Talk therapy and medications can help, but many people don’t realize that there is another treatment available, one that is natural, relaxing, and very effective . . . and one that may be covered by their health insurance: acupuncture.

Acupuncturist Dr. David Buscher, D.Ac. has made a speciality of helping people to relax, ease their minds, sleep better, and enjoy life. The motto of his practice is “Get Better,” and that’s exactly what he aims to deliver at Very Well Acupuncture in Roland Park.

Three Ways to Distinguish Coughs

0

All coughs are not created equal.

We know this, right? I mean, some kids cough so loud and hard that you’re fairly sure part of their lungs will come up, whereas others seem like they need a firm pat on the back and a lesson in “just cough it up already.” And there’s everything in between. As for my own kids, I have the two extremes: one child seems only able to muster up what I’d term as “half a cough” and I feel compelled to cough myself after I hear the lame attempt, and the other one tests my psychological stability with an ongoing cough that lasts for days and reverberates throughout the entire house.

So how do I distinguish various types of coughs and determine which ones are concerning?

And how do I handle the situation of “her cough is really loose and keeps getting worse?” Because this is what I see often in my practice. Allow me to share my classification scheme here in the hopes that it will provide some insight should you find yourself hearing that dreadful noise from your child’s room late one night.

Reach Your Health and Fitness Goals With Training House

There’s a new gym in town. Yes, another one. But this one feels different. And that’s precisely their intention.

Unlike many gyms, where you walk in and see row upon row of cardio equipment, oversized TVs hanging from the ceilings and exercisers plugged into their own earbuds while pedaling or pushing their way through a workout, the first thing you notice when you enter Training House are a couple of big white boards filled with hand-written instructions, the kind a coach uses to explain that day’s workout. (That’s exactly what they are.) You won’t find any TVs or outlets for earplugs. Even the purpose for belonging to Training House is unique among gym-goers.
