“Well, my friends are gone, and my hair is grey.
I ache in the places where I used to play”

— from “Tower of Song” by Leonard Cohen

This quote says a lot about the downside of growing old. I know I have spent many a moment looking back on my own prowess in my twenties and comparing it to where I am today and what is possible now.

Along with an awareness of the differences comes an appreciation and joy from still being in there and doing things now, even if not at the same levels remembered from those good old days.

When the abilities deteriorate to the point the joy is replaced by frustration or pain, it is well past time for outside help. A combination of acupuncture and herbs can do wonders by both decreasing the aches and pains and increasing your energy.

So if your life is difficult due to lack of energy, aches and pains, insomnia, or you just feel the need for change, make an appointment to improve your life today.
