Traditional Chinese Medicine-Heart Attacks-Blood Flow-Pessimism

More on heart attacks and pessimism: don't block your heart qi and blood!

I'm still reeling from the Harvard review stating that optimists are 50% LESS likely to suffer that first heart attack.  It has really made me think about the negative impact that certain emotions can have on our bodies and I talk w/ my patients about it every day.  Pessimism, worry, sadness - they all stagnate the chest.  You can feel it!  Your chest feels tight, tears or angst or anxiety want to be expressed but aren't.  That feeling is, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the qi and blood stagnation around the heart.  How bad for us!!  That is a feeling that I will try to avoid for the rest of my life because I know how important it is for our hearts to have continuous qi and blood flow.   Think about it: our hearts work continuously.  Our heart never gets a break - never.  That continuous creation of life force requires flow, nourishment, calm ability to function which is negatively impacted by the stagnation that emotions like worry and doubt cause.

INSURANCE BILLING: Not all Denver acupuncturists accept insurance. However, I understand the financial importance of allowing patients to pay through their insurer. We work with all insurance carriers that offer acupuncture benefits.  We process all the paperwork and deal with the insurance companies. As a Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I want to allow my patients to concentrate on one thing: healing.
