TanTien: Essential Oils

Share the joy

Tan Tien oil

 I would like to recommend TanTien Essential Oil Blends

I know the person who makes them.  I was looking for essential oils of great quality and I also didn’t want to become involved in a multilevel marketing company.  I tried these oils and they are fantastic.

Go to the website TanTien Essential Oil Blends to purchase directly if you’re interested.  You’ll be glad you did!

Some Nuts

Do  you ever wonder how pistachios, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts and pine nuts  grow? Pretty surprising to me.  The only one I knew was almond.

Check Your Herbal Supplements!

Share the joy

Recently there was an article in the New York Times  discussing the legitimacy of herbal supplements that are sold in certain NY stores (GNC, Walgreens, Target, and Walmart). This is not the first time studies have been done to see if the supplements actually contained the herbs they say they have and will likely not be the last time.

Here is the article in the New York Times:
New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers

The study was conducted by purchasing the supplements in various store locations and testing them for the DNA of the active ingredients that they claimed to contain. The majority of the tests came back negative and also indicated many items that were NOT listed in the ingredients list. Many of these unlisted ingredients were used as fillers and could also be major allergens, such as nuts and wheat. Check your supplements!

The tested and reported brands are as follows: GNC (Herbal Plus), Walgreens (Finest Nutrition), Target (Up & Up), Walmart (Spring Valley). Here is an article breaking down the supplements that were tested and whether or not the claimed ingredient was present:

This NPR Article contains an update concerning Target:
New York State Clamps Down On Herbal Supplements

Here is the 2013 article that initiated the most recent study:
Herbal Supplements Are Often Not What They Seem (New York Times)

If interested, you can see the cease-and-desist letters here:
Cease-and-Desist Letters (New York Times)

The American Botantical Counsel has a Botanical Adulterants Reporting Program that is a relatively new program that reports on supplements that have false ingredients listed. It is a report based system and updates as reports and inquiries are submitted.

Here at Tribeca Chiropractic, PLLC we use the highest quality supplements from Standard Process. Here is their response to the articles: Standard Process’ Thoughts

It’s Here! Psoas Release Party! in DVD

Share the joy

Psoas Release Party

For most of my career I have been talking about the psoas muscle, as has my good friend, Jonathan FitzGordon. Before I met Jonathan we had many mutual clients who had been telling me I had to meet him because he has was so obsessed with the psoas muscle.  They just knew we would get along.  Jonathan has dedicated a large body of his work to sharing his passion with this amazing muscle. After years of leading workshops on the psoas—cleverly named Psoas Release Party!–he’s finally making it available for people to continue the work on their own, at home, via DVD or streaming video.

If you have any issues in your body, releasing the psoas may be a great way to alleviate them. He’s seen people get better sleep, find relief from chronic pain, release deeply held trauma and more.

I’ve had the opportunity to study with Jonathan and I know you’ll benefit from his vast knowledge of the psoas. By understanding how this deep core muscle works and can affect so many aspects of your life, you’ll come away from his work with a deeper awareness of your body and yourself.

Click the link below for more info on the Psoas Release Party! home edition. You’ll not only gain some great info, but he’s also giving away a free ebook, It’s All About the Psoas, because really, it is all about the psoas.
