The spleen is my favourite organ in the body. As an acupuncturist, I am not really supposed to play favourites, saying you love one organ more than the others is like a parent declaring that they love one of their children more, but I feel like I have a special connection with the spleen. I talk about it a lot and I seem to write about it even more. It
is a hardworking and often underappreciated little organ, so it is my duty, and my privilege to give it some much needed love and
The spleen is an organ that doesnít really get discussed very much in relation to the other organs of the body. I think its role in Western medicine
is perhaps seen as less 'vital' than the other organs, but the role of the spleen in Western medicine is very different than its role in
Sleep is an essential part of our well-being that many people do not pay enough attention to. When we don't get enough sleep, we may feel fatigued, foggy headed and moody. The Mayo Clinic recommends that adults get seven to nine hours of sleep every night. The number of hours you sleep is important, but so is the quality of your sleep. If you are getting up several times during the night or have interrupted sleep,
it's just as harmful as not getting enough hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation can affect your mental clarity, put you at risk as a driver,
and impact most things you do.
Q:With all the different oils, their manufacturing processes, and controversial research, I am
confused about how to I figure out what is the best oil to use and how to avoid causing problems.
How much do we really need them anyway?
A: I see Iíve struck a chord with my oils and fats article and appreciate all the postings and input. I acknowledge that people take their oils and fats very personally. The truth is all fats, whether good or bad are useful in hormonal production, neurological health and satiation. Instead of getting fixated on which is the winner of the healthiest oil contest, we should instead focus on getting a variety of oils and fats into our bodies. Is it a problem to have butter once in a while? The answer is moderation in everything you do and eat. But if you ate butter, cheese and red meat everyday, you will surely raise your risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer. What about
when it comes down to choosing between butter and margarine? I would recommend having some butter occasionally but best avoid margarine
entirely because it is hydrogenated which makes it worse than butter.
