I was happy to hear my favorite acupuncture practitioner decided to expand her office space near my home. Jessica Breton has treated me for serious chronic pain issues as well as tune ups for general well being for years. She decided to team up with some other diverse health and wellness professionals to offer our neighborhood a very well rounded and comprehensive set of offers from which to choose.  This delights me because I am an extreme local shopper, wishing to support businesses as close to home as possible.  I can bike to the center in five minutes to receive the highest quality services I know of in Tucson.  The specialists who practice at Zylla offer a unique synergy of services for transforming health issues.

  • Jessica is accomplished in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and tui na.  She is very attentive and hands on in her treatments.
  • Justine Robbins is trained in cranio-sacral therapy and lymphatic drainage.  She recently purchased a Theralase cold laser that she uses to produce miraculous results, decreasing pain and inflammation.  This medical breakthrough is non-invasive, painless, and quick.  I am extra pleased to have access to the magic Theralase right in my ‘hood.
  • Denise Cabrera joins the team as an RN with a specialty in functional medicine.  Her business, Natural Diabetes Nurse, serves patients who want to find natural alternatives to manage or prevent diabetes.  This approach is much needed in the world today.  I expect Denise to make a big difference with her coaching and medical practice.  Folks need to be educated to improve their own wellness.

The grand opening party was a blast, with all ages and all walks of life attending.  Welcome to Midtown Tucson del Norte.  This is my kind of upgrade to the area.

Process Addictions

March 18, 2013 7 Comments

Americans are going deeper into process addictions daily. The repetition of compulsive behavior as a substitute for involvement and enjoyment in life is a growing national disaster.  Our national diabetes and obesity problems are highly related to the indoctrination created by the food industry.  If people are vulnerable and advertising is unquestionably absorbed by the public, where is the ethical line of common sense? I heard that one in every four health care dollars in the US is spent on diabetic patients. Our nation is not in control of our health or our advertising. Compulsion rather than appreciation is promoted at every level.

Professionals are being trained to recognize the symptoms and help patients who suffer. The behavior repeated may be socially acceptable, making it hard to distinguish from healthy behavior. Eating disorders are a common variety of process addiction. Eating itself, working itself, sex itself, and even gambling itself ,are not the real problems with the process addicted person. The overwhelming need to repeat and continue to seek reward in a behavior as the thrill diminishes is the hallmark of process addiction.  Joy is drained away from the person who stays in a deep rut of compulsive habits. The remedy is similar to substance abuse treatment, since the same brain centers are involved. To evolve and escape the tyranny of habit is everyone’s job.  To make better choices, the first step is to be present and aware.  If most of your choices are made by default, this is a good time to begin to choose more deliberately.
