Leave it up to a pesky migraine to ruin springtime dinner on the patio with friends! As the season changes from winter to spring, we get changes in temperature, humidity, and changes in barometric pressure which can all be triggers for migraine headaches. This is because weather changes may cause imbalances in brain chemicals, including serotonin, which can prompt a migraine.

Migraine headaches are chronic headaches that can cause significant pain for hours or even days. Some headaches begin with sensory warning signals such as auras, flashes of light, blind spots, and or tingling in the arm or leg. They often too can be accompanied by other body sensations such as nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light or sound.

Migraine headaches are one of the world’s most common health conditions. Roughly 39 million people in the United States and 1 billion people worldwide have migraines. This makes migraines the 3rd most common illness in the world. Next time you feel a migraine coming on or you are preparing for a change in weather, give this Ear Acupuncture protocol a try!

Sneezing! Rashes! Watery eyes! As excited as we are for the warmer weather and greener grass, many of us dread the seasonal allergy period. An allergy is the general term for an excessive immune response to a substance that is generally not considered harmful. Many people suffer symptoms such as nasal congestion, watery eyes, hives, etc. These reactions can be debilitating and interfere with our daily lives. There is an emotional component to these reactions because people start to dread certain times of the year, and\or limit themselves to the indoors.

Seasonal allergies affect so many of us! In 2021, approximately 81 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever). This equals around 26% (67 million) of adults and 19% (14 million) of children. Patients who suffer are typically recommended different antihistamine therapies to manage their symptoms. However, in Chinese Medicine, auricular protocols have been developed and utilized in practices for countless years to mitigate the body’s excessive immune response and help with seasonal allergy symptoms.

Liver Dysfunction

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) spring is the transitional season of the Liver and its partner the Gallbladder. The Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of blood, Qi (energy), and emotions throughout the body. It is a time of creating, cleansing, activity, movement, growth, and renewal. Spring is the ideal time for cleansing and rejuvenation for overall health and well-being.

Just as we spring clean our house, it is a good time to deep clean our bodies! Many people are quick to buy expensive detox kits but often forget that we each have a natural detox system within ourselves – the liver. When properly supported, the liver does a wonderful job at filtering out chemicals, toxins, hormones, and other properties that do not serve us well. 

The liver organ network includes all of the elements that are associated with the liver, such as the gallbladder, eyes, tendons, and the emotions of irritability, depression, and anger.

Anxiety is one of the most commonly experienced sensations in our modern world. The demands we have in society are astronomically damaging. The pressure to perform well in school, financially afford basic needs, and maintain a social life while working 40+ hours a week. We are living in a world that is breeding anxiety.

To get specific, anxiety is a relatively constant state of worry and fear, which is out of proportion to the actual level of stress or threat in one’s life. Anxiety can be caused by a physical or psychological stimulus, producing mental and physiological reactions leading to illness. Studies show anxiety can be caused by hereditary, brain chemistry, personality, and life experiences.
