Winter Cycle The Season of Water
The power of Winter emphasizes the essence of life. This season is our return to our bare roots (our seed). This time is our time of self recollection, a time when we can connect with our true essence.
Winter is for us, as well as for nature; a time for internal work: meditation, prayer, concentration and most importantly the storing of our energy. We also should use this season for rest, refilling our reserves of energy and gathering strength for the year ahead. Several helpful ways you can do this is to be less active, go to bed early and get up later. We should be like the seed that cannot sprout until it has gained sufficient strength. Our energy must be renewed in the Winter by rest, reflection and stillness within in order to sprout the seed within us as Spring returns. Only then will we be able to spring forth with our ideas and plans with enough energy to develop and grow. Until then there is work going on, but inside. If you do the internal work in the Winter, you can build the reserve necessary for your abundant energy to manifest strength and courage and also be less fearful of your future.
The Kidney and the Urinary bladder are the organs that belong to the water element within us. their pathways within us can be used to fill our reserves and awaken that place in us where our real strength, courage and wisdom reside. Imagine being able to resolve your long years of facing the demands of life which may have left you empty and disillusioned or wracked by illness and pain and you are left feeling like you don't know if you can face another day. The acupuncture point called spirit storehouse can open to you a place that you have long forgotten: a place of inner fulfillment, peace, strength, and wisdom, a place from which the process of healing can begin. Winter is a time of stillness and quietude, Winter is cold and dark, qualities that preserve and store. It is the concentrated, internal force of winter that enables a seed to burst forth in spring growth. Within nature are all the answers, we just have to be quiet enough to listen and empty enough to be filled. If we follow natures way and take a winter rest, we emerge into spring with renewed with restored energy, clear vision, and a sense of purpose. Suggestions for applying helpful tips for winter. . Get more rest.Schedule more time for your inner life (reflection, reading, meditation/prayer,.Choose more warming foods,.Deepen relationships with those who mean the most to you (keep gatherings simple and relaxed).
The Latest Research on Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been used as a health care treatment for thousands of years. Modern studies by leading research facilities have begun to understand the effectiveness of this ancient medicine. Acupuncture is now receiving wide acceptance as a respected, valid and effective form of health care all over the world.
I believe, there is sufficient evidence of acupuncture's value to expand its use into helping allopathic medicines patients.
Hi, my name is Patty Johnson.
I am a licensed acupuncturist in Rancho Cucamonga California. I would like to share with you some research reports on the effectiveness of acupuncture. For instance, did you know that a research study by the Clinical Journal of Pain concluded that low back pain, our most common problem, can be relieved by acupuncture with little or no side effects. In another study published by Spinal Journal acupuncture has been shown to have significant effects on chronic low back pain. In the systematic review thirty two studies were compared and twenty five of those studies provided comprehensive data to come up with this outcome.
In addition to its effectiveness in pain control, acupuncture has been proven in the treatment of a variety of endocrine, circulatory and systemic conditions.
The British Medical journal in 2013 reported that a combination of moxibustion and acupuncture can increase the number of viable pregnancies when embryo implantation has failed. The additional benefits were listed as receiving no adverse side effects and contraindications as a result of receiving acupuncture and moxibustion treatment.
In Italy, a 2016 study involving 190 breast cancer patients proved acupuncture can eliminate the need for additional drugs and is an effective method in improving the quality of life of women who have breast cancer. Acupuncture was shown to be an effective force in managing hot flashes the women received as a result of cancer.
A 2016 research study published by the Cochran Review concluded that acupuncture can not only relieve the pain of headaches but it can help to control or prevent migraines before they happen. Out of the 22 trials conducted, evidence was shown that in addition to prophylactic drugs, acupuncture should be highly considered for migraine treatment and prevention.
Acupuncture & In Vitro fertilization (IVF)
A 2016 research study published in Evidence Based Complimentary and Alternative Medicine concluded that fertility awareness was increased in women who received a multiphasic fertility protocol for acupuncture. In addition, they found women who received this acupuncture protocol also had overall improved well-being.
Acupuncture and Insomnia
In the treatment of insomnia, acupuncture has been shown to improve sleep efficiency and sleep disorders compared to those who do not receive acupuncture treatment. Long term improvements in sleep were also seen from the acupuncture treatment according to research from Henan University of TCM, Zhengzhou.
Acupuncture and Fibromyalgia
Acupuncture can be a great form of treatment for individuals with fibromyalgia. In 2016, The BMJ published a study concerning the effects onf acupuncture on patients who have fibromyalgia. The study found acupuncture to be effective in the realm of manageing pain experienced as a result of having fibromyalgia. In order to get the results real acupuncture treatment was compared with the likes of placebo sham acupuncture. The study went on to strongly recommend those with fibromyalgia seek acupuncture treatment in order to help manage their pain.

Hi, entire world, my name is Patty Johnson; this is my website. I am going to tell you about a seminar I listened too recently. This is a very important subject. I want you to know about this seminar, it is called the seminar about Coronavirus. I want everyone who reads this too really understand the true scope of this pandemic virus. The COVID-19 virus first appeared in a pneumonia patient in a hospital in Wuhan, China, on December 30th, 2019. As of February 20th, 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 totaled 75,465 cases. So, in less than two months, the count went from one to over 75,000. The point I am trying to help you understand is that even China, with its long history of fighting over 321 pandemics did not have a sure cure for COVID-19. It is now March, and for the last five days, there are no new cases in Wuhan China.
I am trying to live by an old saying my dear grandmother used to tell me. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is why I started my education as an acupuncturist and herbalist 25 years ago. I wanted to learn a medical system that could keep people in a state of wellness with continued care. Also, I am trying to combine logical thinking about what the world can learn from humanity's past history of pandemics so we can win these battles with new viruses.
Many hospitals in China are Integrative TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Western Medicine. As I learned in the seminar, I listened too, all the Doctors, and all the patients received both TCM and Western medical care. The Doctors, as well as the patients, received herbal formulas tailored to their disease symptoms in this hospital study. Though the use of herbs are noninvasive with relatively mild side effects, it is not only effective in treating mild and mid-stages of this illness, it can also help prevent patients from moving into the more critical stages of the disease. Along with the herbs, the integrated hospitals in China used acupuncture daily for those patients just diagnosed during the prevention phase. These acupuncture points and herbal formulas are not to be used in place of Western Medicine; rather, they are to be integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing both Western and Chinese medicine. The points and the herbal formulas change with the phase the disease is showing up with its changing symptoms. Please study past pandemic history carefully to help understand how COVID-19 can be treated in an integrated medical system.
As Dr. John Chen stated in his seminar, "From the Western Han Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty, at least 321, large-scale plagues occurred in China. Chinese medicine has served to wage life-and-death battles against various plague consistently through time and has successfully contained the spread of epidemics in a limited area and time. There has never been a similar tragedy in China's history, such as the black plague in Europe, or the Spanish flu these are examples of global plagues that killed tens of millions of people.
I will conclude this important subject with another thought. TCM is not only used to fight pandemics; it has great value in treating men, women, and children's immune systems to make it less likely that they would catch diseases that are always out there just like COVID-19 was, and is still.
Stay safe, and thank you, Dr. Chen, for educating the world with a much-needed history lesson.

Breaking News: Auriculotherapy will be available at Patty Johnson's Acupuncture starting January 2019. The ear is a micro system of the entire body that acts like a switchboard to the brain. When a point on the ear is stimulated, it sends a signal to the brain that then sends a signal to the area of the body being treated. Small black seeds from the Vaccaria plant are secured on the ear with a piece of adhesive tape over specific acupressure points. The continuous mild pressure they exert is amplified by stimulating the seed with a few seconds of fingertip massage every few hours. In the Fall and Winter, you can wear the seeds for three to five days before changing them. In the Spring and Summer two to three days. We will have Kits with instructions, ear seeds, and tweezers available for the individual issues that you can apply at home with her training techniques that are also included if you sign up for her 10 pack treatments as gift certificate packages.
