Time for another Sunday round up! This week we get to see the infant sleep schedule, check out a new study about midwifery, and I’m sorry but we’re getting a little political.
Today’s round up includes a humorous look at why humans eat poisonous things, toxic positivity, and the forward leaning inversion as well as an exciting massage update for the clinic!(more…)
November is upon us and the first snows have fallen!
I am currently sitting here this Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and my favorite sweater and fleece lined leggings (and a bit of French silk pie because I am an awful example for healthy breakfasts).
This week breastfeeding became legal in all 50 states which is a huge, if incredibly delayed) win! Check out this and other things I found on the wide and scary internet in this week’s Sunday round up!
One month ago, Reverie was a different clinic that it is now.
I had a small, community acupuncture practice in the yoga studio of Health Foundations Birth Center in St Paul, Minnesota, where I treated patients twice a week.
It was amazing. It still is (because community acupuncture treatments are continuing) but Reverie is getting bigger. One month ago, I decided to expand my practice to the Naturally Well space in White Bear Lake and that started a cascade of things that has kept me from regular updates. But now that things are settling down once again, I figured it was time for a recap.
Parenthood changes your life in ways you cannot predict and one of the places you need to protect the most is your own self-care. Your new kiddo needs you and you will put a lot of your needs aside to take care of them. But you can’t pour from an empty cup; you need to give some things back to yourself so that you can be properly present for them.
Hey, wow. A third Sunday round-up. This might actually become a thing!
Is anyone else notoriously bad at saying you want to start doing a thing and then not doing it? It can’t just be me.
Anyway, this Sunday round up includes bed-sharing while breastfeeding, a local man working for big change, seed cycling, and my favorite bibimbap recipe that’s nourishing for your body AND your budget.
My last theory-heavy post for the month is going to be on the disharmonies of the Lung system. Like with the post on Liver disharmonies, I am going to discuss common patterns with the Lung system and what they might look like from a Western perspective as well as some general advice for preventing or coping with lung disharmonies.
Time for the second ever Sunday round up! This week I found an awesome video debunking the alpha male myth, a fascinating article about vaginal fluid transfers as a treatment for bacterial vaginosis, and some healing rituals for grief, the emotion of the season.
Self-care is a major part of health care. They are so enmeshed that it’s difficult to separate them but as busy parents, we still remember to go to our physicals and get our teeth cleaned. While these big checkups are important, the little decisions we make every day have a bigger impact on our health than our dentists tut-tutting us about our flossing habit every six months.
It’s so hard to take care of ourselves when we have our jobs, our kids, and our households to take care of, too.
When we’re so busy, how could we possibly add self-care to the list of everything we need to accomplish?
