Knee & Foot Pain

I’m back with more mobility and flexibility exercises for knee and food pain.  I treat so much knee pain and foot pain like Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and to a certain extent shin splints. Of course acupuncture helps tremendously for these issues.  However, there is a reason these issues developed.  Usually it is due to […]

Spring Cleanses & Detoxes

Well, it’s March which is officially spring (even if there are still blizzards up North)!  Spring is always the time of year for cleansing.  We spring clean the yard, the garage, the closets, and the house. What we should be spring cleaning too… is our bodies. In November & December we tend to over indulge. […]

Knee & Hip Pain Relief

Guys, let’s talk pain shall we.   I have so many patients that come in with knee replacements, hip replacements, in need of replacements, or just living in pain.  I feel that between acupuncture and adjustments in body mechanics, all of this could be avoided.  Let me explain. Joints sit a certain way.  The knee for […]

Are You Rubbing Carcinogens into Your Skin Everyday?

You know me, I’m all about the whole food lifestyle.  Get moving, get outside and transition into a whole food active and healthy lifestyle.  I love that all of you are somewhere along this transition path.  Some of you are just beginning, some of you 90% there (yeah you!).  However, as we are making these great […]

Cocomels

Patients are always asking what is a Dr. Shelly approved treat, especially if they have kids!  I realize we live in the real world with candy everywhere.  So, I’m always on the lookout for clean treats that you can indulge in on occasion that isn’t a cancer causing chemical stew! The issue with the standard […]

Beauty & Power Dust Herbals

Non Toxic Cookware

In my quest to detox your life, I’m going into your kitchen today.  So many people use Teflon pans.  I mean, who wants to scrub a burnt on char from a conventional pan?  I don’t know how chefs do it, but I just always seem to burn food in regular pans.  The only answer is […]

New Years Resolution & Goal Setting

It’s that time of year again… New Years Resolutions!  We’ve all set them, we’ve all failed them.  Typically, IF you set one or two, you ditch them in 3 days to 3 weeks.  This year lets make it different.  Let’s not flippantly say we want to lose 20 pounds or 50.  Let’s figure out our […]

Get Ready For Cold Season

It’s that time of year again!  The weather changes, in fact in the Northern parts you are freezing to death right now!  Plus, the Holidays are not just joyous, but they are some of the most stressful times of the year.  Stress compromises immunity as we know.  So, when you add weather changes to stress, […]

Your Money, Your Health

This post is a little outside of my usual wheel house of information.  But as we all know stress takes a toll on our health. In fact, I think that today stress is the root of most evil (it’s a tie between bad food & stress) in chronic health issues like cardiovascular disease, cancer and […]
