Non-Drug Help For Portland Depression Clients
Depression isn’t always just “feeling down” because of circumstantial situations. For some people, depression can be chronic… a constant struggle year after year. For Tori, depression began as a child. The medications prescribed for her were not very helpful and, in some cases, made her feel drugged. Eventually, she began looking toward wellness and a natural approach for hope.
This is Tori’s Story on how an altered diet and a few key supplements changed her life.

Acupuncture to Help Anxiety & Insomnia
Anxiety and insomnia are extremely common patient presentations encountered in the clinic – undoubtedly even more so in today’s challenging times. Often these patients are also apprehensive or sensitive to needling sensation; or blatantly afraid of acupuncture needles in general.
Let’s discuss three of my favorite acupoint prescriptions that offer a minimalist approach for patients suffering from general anxiety and insomnia. These prescriptions use only three points apiece, yet provide highly effective results, allowing apprehensive patients to experience the benefits of acupuncture with minimal invasiveness.
Point Prescription #1
Benshen (GB 13) + Shenting (DU 24) + Sishentong (EX-HN 1)
This is perhaps my favorite point prescription for anxiety and insomnia in all patients; however, this three-point formula is particularly applicable for patients who are anxious about using acupuncture points on the hands or feet. All points are located on the scalp, and work quickly and effectively to calm the mind in cases of anxiety and insomnia. It is extremely effective for patients who suffer from anxiety / insomnia and/or chronic headaches, chronic nasal allergies, poor memory, poor concentration, mild to moderate depression, tense shoulders, and visual fatigue / eye strain due to daily work with computer screens.

Acupuncture Help Before Surgery
Medication, including opioids, is commonly prescribed following surgery; and many veterans deal with chronic pain with opioids, independent of surgery. Exciting new research suggests veteran surgical candidates who receive acupuncture prior to their procedure experience less postsurgical pain and are less likely to require opioids – a win-win for both veterans and the acupuncture profession.
Study findings presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), and subsequently detailed in an ASA press release, detailed the encouraging results involving more than 100 veterans randomly assigned to one of two groups prior to surgery.
