Welcome to The Nest’s blog, “Eggs From The Nest.” The blog will be a regular source of information about the world of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture and the practical ways that its teachings can be integrated into our lives. Readers can expect information on a wide variety of topics, but also a consistent return to some of the categories and issues that we specialize in here at The Nest—fertility, women’s health, all stages of pregnancy and pediatrics—just to name a few.
The blog will be a way for us to educate people about the elegant and comprehensive system of Chinese Medicine. We will help people understand how Chinese Medicine works, how it differs from Western medicine, as well as how it integrates well with Western medicine (and other forms of therapy), and the broad range of health concerns it treats—we want it to be understood that acupuncture and Chinese Medicine goes way beyond the treatment of pain.
We want readers to understand the idea of “foundational healing”—Chinese Medicine addresses health at the core, thus allowing the body to reset and rebalance, which stimulates healing. This idea of foundational healing will appear over and over in our posts— as it is the basis of everything! Whether it be the food we eat, the rest we get, or the state of our mental health, Chinese Medicine seeks to treat the person as a whole, rather than as a symptom of disease. Prevention of illness is much more helpful than having to compensate for a weakened system.
We want to provide solid information and share the wisdom of this ancient medicine that has survived for over 5,000 years. We aspire to inspire readers to become more tuned into to their health and to keep life simple. We look forward to going on this journey with you and we hope that you are educated, informed and at times, entertained.
