Top 3 Practices for a Healthy Pregnancy

Peter Kadar

Pregnancy is one of the most amazing yet difficult things I have ever been through. It's the coolest thing in the world feeling this little bean jump around inside of you (or in my case two beans) but as the days go on, it becomes increasingly difficult to live the same life you were living before pregnancy.  Ahh, the joys of almost motherhood! You're tired, your back hurts, you need a pickle immediately or the rest of your day will be ruined, oh and nothing fits the way it used to. But wait! There are a few things that I have discovered that you can do to help ease the angst of pregnancy!

Acupuncture for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

Peter Kadar

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture effectively treats the “Shen” or Spirit which controls our emotional and mental or cognitive balance. When healthy the Qi or vital energy that nourishes the Spirit will create a young person who is exuberant, has a healthy curiosity, is eager to learn and whose behavior is developmentally appropriate.

What’s at Stake Now! Action, Peace and Clarity…

Anger and fear...two strong emotions showing up in spades, especially since the election in November.

From Baby-making to Bells Palsy

Jared Brick

I saw Shelly for the first time almost 8 months ago, and the first thing I noticed was a slurring of her words when trying to speak to me and her eye was constantly tearing throughout our conversation. Shelly revealed to me that she's a workaholic, often working late into the evenings after her children are asleep. She gets around four hours of sleep a night and has an extremely poor diet. She came to me about a month after coming down with the condition, which isn't ideal when it comes to using acupuncture for Bell's Palsy. Read more at http://acupuncturecenterofnj.com/blog

Peter Kadar

James’ Journey to Wellness with Chron's Disease - James was small for his age, and had a real difficulty with fidgeting in his seat when I was trying to talk to him.  It was exhausting just watching him flail around in his seat like a fish out of water! His mother appeared unphased by this behavior, but in my head I strongly attributed this to the permeability of his gut leaching things like unwanted sugars and gluten into his brain, causing the hyperactive behavior.
