Yoga in India vs. Yoga in America

Good article for understanding what yoga is like in India and what it is means to Indians. A year and a half ago, I moved halfway around the world to the Pacific Northwest from my hometown in South India. I left home with bittersweet feelings — I was excited for the new possibilities, but at the same time, sad to leave everything familiar and dear back home. It was a big, tumultuous [...]

How does acupuncture work? | RMIT University

Nice video on Qi flow. When I learned about meridians I lived in New York City and the metaphor we were given as students was the MTA subways, here in San Diego I talk about the freeways as way of visualizing qi flow to help my patients understand qi flow. The idea of qi flowing in channels arose in China with the advent of canals...medicine and technology have always had a vital relationship to healing.

Store Location / 店舗一覧 | Nijiya Market

Fall is just around the corner but before we get there Late Summer is here. A season unto its own in Chinese Medicine. It is the season of the Earth Element. So foods that have earth tones to them are very helpful to give the body the nutrients and support it craves. Squashes and Mellons are a quintessential foods. If you crave something cooling, we've had weeks of hot humid weather here, then watermellon is perfect. And if you want some warm food then one of my favorites is Kabocha Squash or Japanese Pumpkin. Nice in soups or steamed and the skin softens with cooking so it's a very easy squash to prepare. It full of flavor and has a wonderful sweetness. I've added a link to a great and well priced Japanese Market here in San Diego (they have lots of organic items).

San Diego Native Garden Tour 2012

Gardening with native plants has been a revelation. Because of these green friends I feel more connected to San Diego. In Chinese Medicine staying in tune with the natural world is known to fortify the immune system (wei qi). There's a lot of fun to be had getting in synch with native plants, too. It is neat to discover native plants along the roadside as I drive & walk around San Diego. And the fragrances & colors are amazing. If you have time this weekend to take part in the first San Diego Native Garden Tour it will be a great time for the senses, mind, & spirit. Marketplace and Check-in Opens: 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.Chula Vista Nature Center Parking Lot, 1000 Gunpowder Point Drive, Chula Vista, CA 91910
