11 Anxiety Tips

As we transition into the Fall and Winter season, I am reminded of how many people suffer from anxiety. Whether its from social pressures or the natural darker weather months, here are my top 11 anxiety tips:

Anxiety can be treated with acupuncture.

  1. Take a time-out.  This little hack shouldn’t be limited to kids.  Stepping back from a stressful situation or person will give you some perspective and allow you to think and respond more clearly.
  2. Set boundaries.  This goes for your time commitments, activities, friendships, work and health.   Establishing boundaries is a form of self-respect and self-care.
  3. Eat nutritional meals on schedule with your body’s needs.  Keep healthy snacks like nuts and avocados around for a quick fuel source when you’re under pressure. 
  4. Limit stimulants such as alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety. 
  5. Get proper sleep. Most people are sleep deprived. Try a calming Valerian or chamomile tea a few hours before bedtime.  Melatonin supplements can be helpful if you start with a lose dose and increase as needed.  Always ask your healthcare provider first about supplements and interactions with your current medications and health conditions.
  6. Take a warm bath.  Water can be very grounding for most people.
  7. Exercise.  Find a type of movement that is fun. Dance, walk, yoga, even walking around the block or up the stairs at work will help you rebalance.
  8. Take deep breaths.  Focus on exhaling out longer than you inhale.  This will help calm and reset your nervous system.
  9. Do the best you can and be kind to yourself.
  10. Go outside. Even If the weather is gloomy, the fresh air will help rebalance your mood and move out stagnant energy.
  11. Get Acupuncture. In a recent study, acupuncture outperformed drug for anxiety treatment.

The Importance of B12 In Your Wellness Program

Your body needs B12 to ensure proper cell function and metabolism. For some individuals, B12 isn’t well absorbed through diet or in capsule form and injections can provide better absorption. After B12 injections, many patients feel a natural restoration of their energy.  This procedure, called Acu-Point Injection, places B12 into the most powerful acupuncture points so you get the added benefits of circulation through the meridian system along with activation of the acupuncture point.

Who Can Benefit?

Most people can benefit from a B12 injection, particularly those who live a busy life, are athletes, seniors, vegetarians, vegans, and those on medications or with digestive issues.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Boosts Energy & Reduces Fatigue
  • May Improve Your Mood
  • Decreases Anxiety & Depression
  • Improves Sleep
  • May Improve Heart Health By Decreasing Homocysteine Levels
  • Supports Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails
  • Improves Metabolism
  • Helps Anemia
  • Reduces PMS & Menopause Symptoms
  • Reduces & Clear Acne
  • Improves Mental Fogginess
  • More Efficient Workouts

Oral B12 Vs. Injection:  What’s the Difference In Benefits?

Many people have poor absorption of nutrients due to diet, medications, digestive issues and other health conditions. The benefit of an injection is that it bypasses the digestion and absorption pathway allowing for higher bioavailability of the nutrient.  This is called parenteral administration and can be given intramuscularly or subcutaneously.

How Long Does It Take?

B12 Injections are easy and take less than 15 minutes.  B12 is gently placed in acupuncture points on the lower leg while you are seated or resting your eyes for a moment on the table.  It’s an efficient way to boost your energy and health and easily fits into your day.  The recommended frequency will depend on your health goals. 

Your first injection includes an allergy test at no additional charge.  Please allow 30 minutes for your first injection.  Follow up injections take less than 5 minutes.

Does It Hurt?

I use a very tiny gauge needle and most of my patients barely feel the injection.
