Through acupuncture, natural supplements and dietary recommendations provided by Dr. James Pedersen, my rheumatoid arthritis has been in remission for nine months.

I started seeing Jim Pedersen back in March after my first miscarriage. At every appointment, Mr. Pedersen took the time to listen to me and find out the best way to help my body prepare for a healthy pregnancy. I would often go to these appointments down and very discouraged. Mr. Pedersen gave me the support and encouragement I needed to get through this very difficult time in my life. I always left each session with hope and my spirits... Read more »
I started my visits to help me control stress and have since found relief for assorted pains I’d grown used to.

Self-care has become a trendy buzzword in the post-Covid era but the benefits to practicing regular self-care are undeniable. But first, let’s talk about what self-care is and what it isn’t.

But we don’t all have to be moms to have an overwhelming to-do list that depletes us mentally and physically. Just like a healthy diet and regular exercise, self-care is the next key to great physical and mental health.
The best part about self-care is that it includes a variety of activities that can range from exercise, yoga, hiking in nature, or bike riding, to quieter outlets like reading, meditation, prayer, or a warm bath. It really is up to you to determine what outlet is best for you. continue reading
