Three Mountains Wellness is happy to support the March of Dimes again this year by donating an acupuncture and Oriental medicine package worth $150 for the Signature Chefs auction.
The March of Dimes works to reduce the number of premature births in Michigan. Efforts to prevent premature birth deserve our attention and support because it is the number one killer of babies in America. Furthermore, even if they survive, premature babies are at risk for a number of serious health complications. Three Mountains Wellness believes that all moms and babies deserve to be healthy, so acupuncturist and Oriental medicine practitioner Elizabeth Billings works hard to ensure that her patients are healthy and ready for pregnancy. The Mayo Clinic lists a number of risk factors for premature birth that can be helped with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Among these are stress, multiple miscarriages, conceiving though IVF, smoking, high blood pressure and diabetes. If you are thinking about getting pregnant, give Three Mountains Wellness a call and get your body balanced and ready to carry your baby all the way to term.
Governor Snyder proclaimed October 24th as Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day in the State of Michigan and invited us to come to the Capitol to celebrate. It was nice of the State to recognize the effectiveness of this unique and powerful system of medicine and the people who dedicate their lives to it. As the Governor proclaimed, acupuncture and Oriental medicine are "components of a comprehensive system of traditional medicine that has been used for thousands of years to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being." He also complemented professional acupuncturists and Oriental medicine practitioners, recognizing that we "are dedicated to the highest standards of professionalism and maintain these standards through education, credentialing and a personal commitment." (It's true, most of us are geeks at heart, so we spend literally thousands of hours learning this system of medicine that we love and developing an unmatched depth and breadth of understanding for the benefit of our patients). As a result, to quote the Governor, "it is vital that those in need of medical services understand the full realm of available modalities and seek competent and professional care" from professionals who truly understand the intricacies of this system of medicine and can maximize the benefits for patients.
I was happy to have Three Mountains Wellness help raise awareness and educate legislators, lobbyists, staff and the public about the comfort and effectiveness of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. It was great to literally have the ears of the people who work at the Capitol and help them find relief from a variety of issues during our free acupuncture sessions. But I particularly enjoyed being invited to give a brief talk about acupuncture to a group of school children that were visiting the Capitol. The kids thought it was pretty cool, and of course, they're right!
