    Sit Up Straight - S2E2

    Sit Up Straight - S2E2

    It’s the second week in 2021, are you back to normal yet? Of course not!! But at least I hope you are preparing yourself to be. This week’s podcast is about teaching you to apply the posture techniques taught in our YouTube video last week titled “Fix Your Posture” (link to channel below for other videos too) so that you can focus better and be more efficient while you work, drive, or watch TV. (I don’t imagine that last one requires much effort though...LOL) Those aches and pains you have are not going away anytime soon either if your posture isn’t any good. So, follow the easy exercise in this podcast, keep practicing it, and you will be prepared for even more sitting (Yay! Not…), at least until this pandemic has passed. Thanks for listening to the #GateofLifepodcast by #mymetromedicine! Your #1 source for living a better life every single day. Have an blessed day!

    The host of the Gate of Life podcast (Justin Flinner) is an acupuncturist, U.S. champion in Chinese martial arts, university professor, and the owner of My Metro Medicine; an award-winning Acupuncture and Tai Chi clinic in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

    ASK THE EXPERT---Mina Larson (CEO, NCCAOM - Part 2)

    ASK THE EXPERT---Mina Larson (CEO, NCCAOM - Part 2)

    In Episode #11, we complete part two of our interview with Mina Larson, CEO of the National Certification Commission on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in Washington, DC. (www.nccaom.org) According to their website, the “NCCAOM is the only national organization that validates entry-level competency in the practice of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) through professional certification.” In our interview with Mina, we asked questions about licensing, their national board exams, and questions that came directly from Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine students who participated in our survey. We are grateful to both Mina and the NCCAOM for allowing this special opportunity to look closely at what the organization is doing behind the scenes to support our growing profession. Thank you for listening!

    *IMPORTANT NOTE: This interview was recorded prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and before social distancing guidelines were implemented in the local region. Some information in this interview may reference events that are no longer taking place due to the pandemic.*

We discussed the challenges Pukai is witnessing in the Inova Health System as well as the sacrifices he and his co-workers are making on a daily basis to ensure the health and safety of our community and our country. Thank you Pukai and thank you to all those who watched the full interview, available here:

    Stay Home! – The Coronavirus Lockdown Series - Ep70

    Stay Home! – The Coronavirus Lockdown Series - Ep70

    Across the world, people are going crazy staying inside their homes. People want to go out and live “normally” again, even if for just five minutes. Who can blame them? It is unnatural for us to stay indoors for so long, but the fact is, we have ALL been called to stay home. It is our duty as a caring citizen to think about the people around us in our communities. The health of the world is at stake, and we must all step up and work together. Please pass this important message on to as many people as possible. I wish you all the best. #StayHealthy #StayHappy and #StayHome!
