Health & Happiness

“No one will ever be more invested in your own mental or physical health than you. The more you take an interest in your own health and what supports it and the more responsibility you take for your own health and well being the less expensive and the more effective your own true health care will be” ~ Nora Gedgaudas
 
I just loved this quote and wanted to share it with the “masses”; and to ask you, my readers, a question…
 
What do you do to take responsibility for your health, and does it make you happy?
 
For me, it’s a lot of little things, but the two main things at the moment are getting regular chiropractic adjustments (meaning at least once every couple of months) and seeing one of my teachers for Chinese Herbs.  Both these things are a big commitment of time, energy and money, and believe me, I don’t have a whole lot of extra time in my schedule; but I’ve made a commitment to myself and my practitioners and ultimately it makes me happy.  It also gives me the sense that I am actively taking part in my own healing process which is super empowering.  It’s easy to make excuses as to why we can’t spend the money on our own healthcare, but when it comes down to it, if our minds and bodies aren’t healthy, then what else is there? 
 
~be well~

About eresko

I am a licensed Acupuncturist and NCCAOM Board certified Diplomat of Oriental Medicine. I live in Ketchum, Idaho, where I have an Acupuncture practice at Zenergy Health Club & Spa & Pure Body Pilates. I am also a Level I & II certified Kettlebell Instructor and teach private classes as well as classes at High Altitude Fitness in Ketchum, Idaho. I have been very very active in sports and athletics since I can remember. I received my BS in Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado @ Boulder. In my practice I utilize all modalities to help get you where you want to be, whether with Acupuncture or Kettlebell training. I am well versed in treating Sports specific conditions; pain, injuries, strains & sprains and use my knowledge of the body both from a Chinese Medical standpoint and a traditional Western one; a concept that most of my patients are familiar with. In addition, I incorporate my knowledge of the physical body & how we move, where restrictions pain or tightness may reside and how that in turn affects the internal organs. For each individual that walks through my door, I am able to assess what each person needs as far as therapy to achieve their goals. Each person is different, inside and out and treatments should reflect that. Among my modalities, I use Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Tuina (a type of Chinese bodywork), Japanese style Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Nutrition, and Lifestyle coaching as well as my Kettlebell training for rehab and for improving one's fitness level.
