Ep. #35 – Terry Fox – Find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Terry Fox, L.Ac

Find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Licensed Acupuncturist, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Aesthetic Acupuncture Specialist, Terry Fox, is Northern Colorado’s leading expert in helping Women feel better and look younger through Aesthetic and Facial Acupuncture. Today he shares with us how to find a qualified Acupuncturist.

When he was 17, Terry’s mother was diagnosed with a chronic and painful autoimmune disease – fibromyalgia. Inspired to relieve her pain, Terry was led to the Utah College of Massage Therapy. Once graduated, he helped create the first hospital-based Massage Therapy program in the state of Wyoming. Four years after, Terry progressed into Acupuncture. In only three years, he earned his Master’s Degree from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2006, he founded Artesian Spring Oriental Medicine in Fort Collins, Colorado. Terry also has served as Secretary for the Acupuncture Association of Colorado, and was voted Best Acupuncturist 2015 and 2016 according to The Experience Pros radio show.

Many of Terry’s teachers are internationally known masters of Cosmetic Acupuncture and Classical Chinese Medicine – Ron Rosen, Denise Ellinger, Martha Lucas, Wudang Chen, Dr. Ping Zhang, and Mary Elizabeth Wakefield. Terry’s focus is helping women feel and look their natural best through Aesthetic Acupuncture. And because of this he also started his podcast – The Get Foxy Show, where he talks with experts in Holistic Health, Natural Beauty, and Passionate Living.

I lead and inspire women to reconnect with their own innate healing capacity, return to their authentic self, and revive their radiant joy for living. I believe each patient is a precious child of God and should be treated accordingly. I’m passionate about helping women manifest their own inherent beauty by fostering their health and wellbeing. I’ve been described as “knowledgeable, caring, and professional,” and I strive continually to live up to that description.

Terry doesn’t just treat “skin deep,” he sees deeper and works on a holistic level. Women come to him for his expertise. They trust him because of his gentle nature and keen intuition. But, they love him because his heart is wholly connected to their betterment.

Steps to find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Start with word of mouth. Ask people you trust if they’ve seen someone that’s gotten them results.

If no one you know can recommend someone, then searching online is your next best bet.

Before you start talking to potential Acupuncturists, determine your intentions and goals regarding the treatment. Then convey that information and get a feel for whether the acupuncturist will support your goals.

Ask potential Acupuncturists about what you can expect from a session, their training, general experience, and their specific experience treating your condition.

As with any health care provider, an Acupuncturist should be able to answer these questions to your satisfaction. But please follow your gut feelings. In addition to the specific answers you get from your questions, consider your instincts. Did you feel comfortable about your interaction with this Acupuncturist? Did anything about them rub you the wrong way? Always, always listen to your gut. When something puts you off about the practitioner, don’t work with them.

If your state requires licensing, make sure the Acupuncturist is properly licensed. If licensing isn’t required, look for someone certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.) or Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dipl. Ac.).

Common Questions covered in this episode:

  • What’s this Qi stuff?

Ep. #28 – Meghan Renton – Dangers of Breast Implants

Meghan Renton - the dangers of breast implants

The Dangers of Breast Implants

Meghan Renton is a 32 year old mother of three beautiful boys and a hospital Social Worker and working on her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. She grew up on a ranch in Livermore getting dirty, being a tomboy, without a worry in the world about her body. But, after breastfeeding three children, her body changed and so did her insecurities. At that time she was in the best shape of her life but as with many women was insecure about her appearance. And there, she made a decision that would impact her life and health, she got breast implants. Fast forward three years and countless doctors visits, she got them removed. Learning a big lesson on self-love, Meghan felt the need to share her story with others, and I was compelled to have her share it.

Some of the ideas we cover in this episode:

  • The Quickness and Glossing Over of Medical Consents
  • Self Esteem issues
  • Subtle symptoms of toxicity: daily fatigue, acne, joint aches, etc.
  • Healing Breast Implant Illness FaceBook page
  • Hashimotos Thyroiditis 
  • “A monster was inside of me”
  • Fake body image vs Real body image
  • Honoring yourself no matter what your breasts look like
  • Shame, guilt, and sharing your story
  • Self love is foxy

This a subject that we don’t hear much of in the media today. Know that you’re created perfectly imperfect. You have an innate beauty that you were born with.

If you’re considering breast implants, do your research.

Deeply ponder why you’re considering this procedure. Take time for self-examination and determine what your true motivations are. If that motivation comes from a lack of self-love or self-esteem, I encourage you to address this first before you risk your health and wellness.

Ruptured Silicone Breast Implant - the dangers of breast implants
Meghan’s ruptured breast implant that was leaking silicone and growing mold inside her body.

This situation is more common than we think. Just 3 days prior to putting this show together, the following story came across my email:

https://www.realself.com/review/pittsburgh-pa-breast-implant-removal-drooping-dds-gotta?rsuid=3036158&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NL-20180219-B2-2XWeekPM%202018-04-03&utm_term=NL-20180219-B2-2XWeekPM#

And two days prior, a British documentary show called The Ugly Side of Beauty popped up on my Netflix feed. If you have Netflix, I highly encourage you to watch it.

Here at The Get Foxy Show, I want you to be happy and healthy. Because health is beauty. And beauty is foxy!
