A Chicago Acupuncturist’s Open Letter to President Obama
As a fellow resident of Chicago, I join many others and support your message of change. You have been making important appointments to your cabinet. Well, in the spirit of change, I would like to humbly propose an official new White House Appointment, First Family’s Acupuncturist.
Why do you need an acupuncturist in the White House?
1. We know that you are famous for being calm and collected. But let’s face it, you are headed into unprecedented global challenges. You can expect some tension and acupuncture is wonderful for stress relief.
2. With your regular basketball games, you must occasionally suffer a few aches, pains and muscle strains. Bring Arne Duncan along for needles. Acupuncture is well known for pain relief.
3. We have all heard through Michelle that you still struggle with a smoking habit. Acupuncture is effective in reducing cravings and can curb withdrawal symptoms.
4. Moving to a new place, going to a new school, and meeting the Lincoln ghost, Sasha and Malia will be exposed to the flu, common colds and the spirit world. Chinese Medicine can be great for preventing and easing the symptoms of colds and flus. You may want to check out my previous post on the immune boosting benefits of astragalus.
You have promised a different approach to healthcare. Traditional Chinese Medicine can be an important part of that plan. My needles will point you in the right direction.
I await your call to become the First Family’s Acupuncturist.
