A very fit and healthy 70 year old lady came to see me recently with a leg ulcer that had not healed for nearly four months. This is the result of a once a week treatment with my cold laser probe over the course of only 1 month. We are both delighted!

Splash out on pedalo rides, not pills

I love this comment in today's Guardian! Click here to read As brilliant as Western medicine is for many conditions, general health issues caused by imbalancedimmune systems, are much better treated through the acupuncture meridians.

Pigmentation and acne: Beyond skin deep…

Like all health issues, pigmentation is another manifestation of dead red blood cells not cleared away by the body's lymphatic system.
