Foods for Glowing Skin and More…

Looking to Feeling Better AND Look Better, too?…

Look to Foods that help repair collagen, the connective tissues in the face and body.

 

It only makes sense that these same foods help lower inflammation and pain to help lower:

  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • General aches and Pains

Foods that have:

  • Color variety
  • Fiber
  • EFA’s
  • Water 
  • Antioxidants
  • Antibiotic-free
  • Additives-free

 

Choose natural foods (not packaged nor over-refined).

Eat High fiber, natural foods such as many vegetables like peppers and avocados and pumpkin seeds.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are necessary to hold up collagen to avoid severe wrinkles and breaking down of tissues in the body (Fish oil, nut oils, etc.)

  • Flax seed/ Flax oil
  • Sardines
  • Mackerel
  • Salmon
  • Walnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds

 

Foods in many (natural) colors:

-Eat colorful, antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries, raspberries (especially for fertility), spinach, kale, peppers

(unless you must avoid nightshades).

 

Avoid food color additives  (unless natural colorings such as beet juice powder)

 

Choose foods like avocados that are rich in fiber and good fat (easy to make guacamole in minutes to dip celery into)

Bell peppers in green, red, yellow and orange make great dipping replacements for chips and go well with hummus. Make your own to avoid hydrogenated oils, too!

Pumpkin seeds are high in EFA’s, fiber and Zinc (great for immunity).

 

Foods High in h20:

Foods high in water content plump the skin all over the body and help avoid dehydration and premature wrinkles.

Hydration also flushes the body, helping keep excess salt from damaging the internal organs, such as the kidneys…

–When kidneys have to overwork due to too much salt, kidneys may be  unable to remove enough water in the body; high blood pressure may result.

 

Avoid meats with antibiotics and additives:

Avoid foods with chemical additives such as added nitrates/nitrites used in deli meats and cheeses (naturally-occurring and celery-based is okay).

These unnatural added nitrates/nitrites can lead to things like gout which is very painful!

Aleesha Ackerman, LAc treats fine facial wrinkles using the famous cosmetic acupuncture protocol of Mei Zen.

This protocol is also known as My Zen. This cosmetic facial acupuncture protocol is the only protocol that uses more than fifty needles inserted into the face with acupuncture needles inserted elsewhere in the body. Not to worry-these needles are tiny!

This cosmetic facial treatment that treats the entire body, not just the face.

So, we are addressing other systems in the body simultaneously as needed. Digestion for instance, may need some care shown to it during the treatment. This protocol treats your face and your body…It truly is a two-for-one acupuncture treatment!

How Many Acupuncture Visits:

Most Back Pain is resolved quickly within 4-6 treatments.

Some relief (often significant relief) is usually felt after the first treatment.

 

Other Ways Acupuncture Can Help:

Acupuncture can also be great to get right before a Chiropractic adjustment.

Why is this? 

Because Acupuncture loosens up the back muscles and helps lower inflammation.

This can help prep the back for an adjustment before a chiropractic appointment.

 

Just to be clear, We do NOT do Chiropractic adjustments. Only Acupuncture. And Cupping (when appropriate).

And Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture.  And e-stim (electric stimulation/ tens unit) attached to needles (when necessary).

So, if you have Back Pain, Try Acupuncture. 

Acupuncture works on Acute Back Pain, Chronic Back Pain, Can help with a chiropractic adjustment and is a non-surgery, non medication (non-addicting) treatment.

Moving from Main St to 229 Jackson Street, Suite #130 in August 2020.

 

Why the Move?… Much better fit…

Parking: Parking lot right next to building so you should have a place to park close to your appointment!

 

Noise: 229 Jackson Street is one block behind Main Street Anoka, so less noise

from hustle and bustle of traffic and pedestrians/shoppers.

 

Privacy: Moving from Main Street, means less “curiosity” or “tire kicker” walk-ins during appointments (peace & quiet).
