The Integrative Health Project -Supports Acupuncturist’s Clinical Trial in Guatemala

The study is set to begin in two weeks pending final IRB board approval. Afterwards, the protocol could be made readily available in underserved areas where access to conventional treatment is unavailable or unaffordable. It could also be used in cases where the conventional treatment is contra-indicated or has unacceptable side effects. Joan has already given instruction in auricular acupuncture to more than 90 Guatemalan midwives, community health promoters and students. Acupuncture has been well accepted and popular in the community. Her work is supported in part by the Integrated Health Project.

A New York based Acupuncturist is doing a Clinical Trial on Reducing Blood Glucose in Patients with Type Two Diabetes

This is the first time an auricular (ear) acupuncture protocol is being tested for this outside of China.

Joan Boccino, L.Ac. a doctoral candidate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, is trying to determine if ten small needles inserted in both ears have any effect on blood glucose levels . The “ear only” or auricular point combination she will use is derived from published literature and a survey of practitioners in the field. It is similar to another ear protocol known as the “NADA Protocol.” That combination was originally developed in the context of drug detoxification treatment in the 1970’s. However, it proved so effective that it’s use has expanded for use in general wellness and stress reduction including PTSD. In the US it is used in private practices, community settings, hospitals and by the US military.

Joan developed #BoccinoProtocol with NADA in mind as the NADA protocol has historically been taught to community members who are not “medically trained” in addition to those within the healthcare field.

Dr. BOccino knows the immediate need for pragmatic intervention in diabetes since she has been working in the Mayan Highlands since 2011. In 2012 colleagues and senior students from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine joined Professor Boccino in founding a mission that is still on-going at the Barbara Ford Center for Peace in Quiche. Last year, she brought a successful Traditional Chinese Medicine Jornada to the District of Solola.

This year, her study is being coordinated with the assistance of The Diabetes Club which will provide patients and office space for the research in Panajachel. The study’s criteria calls for patients with a history of blood glucose levels above +125 They also must have the ability to test blood glucose levels — two times a day for four consecutive weeks. Twenty participants will all be issued meters, materials and given instructions for recording their data prior, during and after the study. During the second and third weeks of the study they will receive the acupuncture treatment.

If this study is successful Joan can seek alliances with the Guatemalan government and educational institutions to discuss running a larger study. If results of that larger study are also successful, Joan can work with the appropriate agencies to develop a curricula of certification (and professional acknowledgement) for practitioners trained in this protocol.

The study is set to begin in April pending final IRB board approval. Afterwards, the protocol could be made readily available in underserved areas where access to conventional treatment is unavailable or unaffordable. It could also be used in cases where the conventional treatment is contra-indicated or has unacceptable side effects. Joan has already given instruction in auricular acupuncture to more than 90 Guatemalan midwives, community health promoters and students. Acupuncture has been well accepted and popular in the community. Her work is supported in part by the Integrated Health Project.

Acupuncturists Treat 1,100 in the District of Quiche

“Sure, it would be easier to ‘just do it,’ but, when they practice they gain confidence. It does take some time for them to improve but, in the end, they own it.”

SPANISH TRANSLATION SIGUE

The Integrative Health Project’s Clinical  Director, Dr. Joan Boccino, D.A.O.M enrolled a mighty and nimble group of volunteers to treat Quiche speaking Mayans in the highlands of Guatemala.  This team came from both coasts and, almost everyone, except the Treasurer, was new.

I got to Santa Cruz del Quiche in plenty of time to meet the troops. The chicken bus had flown low, slicing around the curves in well under three hours.  I was delighted to meet and have tHe opportunity to introduce Antonio Provencio, Boris Bernadsky, Sidnee Chong, Jill Jancic and Sharon Smith  to the Barbara Ford Center for Peace. The compound would be their “homebase” for the next week.

The gang of us wandered off and outside the gates to get a view of the Quiche valley and to see the homes of the tenant farmers and, at last, to gaze upon a meadow feeding a few , skinny cows. This idyll proved deceptively tranquil as you will see.

By supper, Jeenie Miyoung Chung, L.Ac., Jennie Walker, M.D., Miguel Landron had arrived and that was almost everybody except the very welcome, “pick-up,” translator from Santiago.  This time, this opening day was symbolized by two snakes. Like the underground deities of the Greeks, snakes also symbolize the power of medicine for Mayans (1.).  The opening speech proved both appropriate and auspicious…

Saturday Joan gave out hugs and words of appreciation to the health promoters, all of whom had earned Certificates of Completion for their successful application of Moxibustion, Auricular Acupuncture and Gua Sha over the past year.  They were proud and, appeared a bit surprised to receive the formal recognition.

Then, it was back to class for more instruction on how to work in their own field Clinics, the Yin and Yang of the ear, fifteen new protocols and internal organ massage.  Sharon Smith instructed us in this art  called”Chi Nei Tsang.”  There was time set aside for practice in order to integrate the new lessons before the mini-clinic opened on Sunday.  Despite the sometimes slow pace of her students, Joan is very supportive of them as they ascend the learning curve.

“Sure, it would be easier to ‘just do it,’ but, when they practice they gain confidence.  It does take some time for them to improve but, in the end, they own it.”

As usual, patients enjoyed the relaxation exercises – whether they  were called (improperly) “Yoga” or whether they were correctly named “Qi Gong,” and considered an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.   Jill and Sidnee spelled Sharon Smith in leading the exercise module.  For one class, I translated for Jill as she put on a very laugh-y session.  After that, from time to time, I would catch her coaxing some folks into a playful balancing circle.

As always, Claudia Castillo rocked the kitchen – she doled out lots of delightful green sauce and we wildly put it on everything from waffles to ratatouille.  Only a birthday cake (a pineapple upside down confection big enough to feed thirty) escaped “greening.”

The first days passed about blur  But, when we returned from Cotzal,  four crew members went down with fevers and Miguel was riddled with bug bites.  Then, there were the snarl-ups on the day known for Four Dog bites – Three patients from Sacapulus would be sent to the hospital for stitches after being attacked by neighbor’s dogs just outside the gates of BFCP.  (The viscious dogs were subsequently impounded.) That night, Jenny Walker would dress a “suspicious” fourth wound — She told us that the patient did not seem mentally stable and, so, following a line of questioning,  the doctor wondered if the woman’s in-laws owned the offending dog that took a chunk out of the patient’s leg.

That evening, as Joan discussed ways to move the patients through all the treatment stations and still give good treatment,  Sabastiana, a medicine woman from Quiche, would tell us that this particular day with it’s horrors was  right on time.  She predicted (correctly,) that the patients would recover and stated that the next day would was a key pivot point called “Batz” -meaning thirteen.   If the group could pull through the next day, she said, that the Medical Jornada would succeed.

And succeed it did, albeit miraculously.  From inside the Pharmacy, where I got tapped as a runner working with Flor and Eva the Jornada appeared unending and, at times, monumental.  This was a somewhat harrowing position to play, but, very light duty, compared to Joan’s and Jeenie’s.   These anchoring acupuncturists, wrote out herbal prescriptions for more than 1,100 patients.

The stalwarts stayed behind on the last evening.  Jeenie, Boris,  Jenny, Sharon completed packing and inventorying the Pharmacy and headed for bed after a late supper.  All hands, were able to attend Flor’s closing ceremony meant to celebrate the team’s fine work and to conclude the volunteers’ week with a special healing.

Thank you everybody..

Director Clínico de la Global Clinic, Joan Boccino , L.Ac. inscrito un grupo poderoso y ágil de voluntarios para tratar de hablar mayas Quiche en las tierras altas de Guatemala . Este equipo vino de ambas costas y , casi todos.

Llegué a Santa Cruz del Quiche temprano en la tarde , después de haber volado bajo , derrapando en las curvas y en menos de tres horas a través de bus de pollo . Yo estaba encantado de conocer y orientar ligeramente Antonio Provencio , Boris Bernadsky , Sidnee Chong , Jill Jancic y Sharon Smith at “base ” para la próxima semana . Paseamos apagado y fuera de las puertas de conseguir una vista del valle del Quiche y ver las casas de los colonos y , por fin, para contemplar una pradera alimentar unas cuantas vacas , flacas. Este idilio resultó engañosamente tranquilo . En la cena, Jeenie Miyoung Chung, L.Ac. , Jennie Walker , MD , Miguel Landron había llegado y que estaba casi todo el mundo , excepto el ” pick-up “, traductor muy bienvenido, Yeshai Peluquería

En ausencia de la hermana Ginny , Florecilla Manzano , una vez más , dio la invocación. Esta vez, ella dijo que este día de la inauguración fue simbolizado por dos serpientes . Al igual que las deidades subterráneas de los griegos , las serpientes simbolizan también el poder de la medicina de los mayas ( 1 . ) . El discurso de apertura resultó apropiado y auspicioso …

Sábado Joan repartió abrazos y palabras de agradecimiento a los promotores de salud , todos los cuales habían obtenido los Certificados de Finalización de su exitosa aplicación de la moxibustión , la acupuntura auricular y Gua Sha en el último año . Estaban orgullosos y parecían un poco sorprendido de recibir el reconocimiento formal.

Luego , fue a clase para obtener más instrucciones sobre la forma de trabajar en sus propias clínicas de campo , el Yin y el Yang de la oreja, quince nuevos protocolos y masaje de órganos internos . Sharon Smith nos instruyó en el arte del Chi Nei Tsang . No había tiempo destinado a la práctica con el fin de integrar las nuevas lecciones antes de la mini- clínica abrió el domingo . A pesar de la a veces lento ritmo de sus estudiantes , Joan es muy tolerante con el ritmo a medida que ascienden la curva de aprendizaje .

“Por supuesto , sería más fácil simplemente hacerlo, pero , cuando practican ganan confianza . Hace falta algo de tiempo para que puedan mejorar , pero , al final, que lo posee ” .

Como es habitual , los pacientes disfrutan de los ejercicios de relajación – si fueron llamados ( incorrectamente ) “Yoga ” o si fueron nombrados correctamente “Qi Gong “, y consideran una parte integral de la Medicina Tradicional China. Jill y Sidnee escanda Sharon Smith en este . Traduje para Jill mientras se ponía una clase que era muy reír -y. Y , de vez en cuando me gustaría recuperar el persuadir a algunas personas en un círculo de equilibrio juguetona.

Claudia Castillo sacudió la cocina – se repartió un montón de salsa verde delicia y violentamente se lo puso todo de gofres con pisto. Sólo la torta de cumpleaños de Alice Kim ( una piña al revés confección suficientemente grande para alimentar a treinta) escapó ” greening “.

Los días pasaron rápidamente. Pero cuando volvimos de Cotzal , tres miembros de la tripulación se hundieron con fiebres . Luego , estaba el lío en el día de los Cuatro mordeduras de perro – Tres pacientes de Sacapulus serían enviados al hospital después de ser atacado por los perros de los vecinos a las afueras de las puertas de BFCP . ( . Los perros infractores fueron confiscados por la policía ) Jenny Walker se vestiría un ” sospechoso” cuarta herida – El paciente no parecía mentalmente estable y el médico le preguntó si habían poseído el perro que arrancó un trozo de la pierna del paciente. Esa noche, mientras Joan discutió maneras de mover a los pacientes a través de todas las estaciones de tratamiento y aún así dar un buen tratamiento, Sabastiana , una curandera del Quiche , nos diría que este día en particular , con sus horrores estaban justo a tiempo. Ella predijo ( correctamente ) que los pacientes se recuperen y se indica que el día siguiente sería es un punto de giro clave llamada ” Batz ” – es decir, trece años. Si el grupo podría salir adelante al día siguiente, dijo, que la Jornada Médica tendría éxito.

Y lo logró , milagrosamente . Desde el interior de la farmacia , donde me hice tapping como corredor trabajar con Flor y Eva la Jornada parecía interminable e, incluso, monumental. Esta era una posición un tanto angustioso para jugar, pero , el deber muy ligero, en comparación con el de Joan y de Jeenie . Los acupunturistas anclaje , escribió las recetas a base de hierbas para 1100 pacientes.

Los incondicionales se quedaron en la última noche . Jeenie , Boris , Jenny , Sharon completó embalaje e inventario de la farmacia y se dirigió a la cama después de una cena tardía . Todas las manos , pudieron I asistir a la ceremonia de clausura de Flor quiere celebrar bien el trabajo del equipo y para concluir la semana de los voluntarios con una curación especial.

Gracias a todos ..

Treating Victims of Hurricane Sandy for PTSD with Acupuncture

on the way to Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn
on the way to Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn

Looks fine on the outsideimageIn order to get my NADA certification, I was scheduled to meet with Wendy Henry, L.Ac., and to volunteer at her clinic for hurricane Sandy victims in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn.

It seemed that we could have run into each other during the post 9/11 recovery phase. Her group, CRREW (Community Relief and Rebuilding through Education and Wellness) was first formed to respond to the disaster. Since then, the acupuncturist has provided NADA training and treatment in New Orleans, Vietnam and, recently, after Sandy, she went to Haiti. I met this very caring woman through my trainer, Joan Boccino, LAc., of Global Clinic who contacted her on my behalf so I could officially complete the U.S. certification.

By subway and connecting bus, we wheedled our way deep into Brooklyn.

“The Occupy Wall Streeters shifted into gear after Sandy,” she reminded me.
But, she was networked directly into the residential community that includes generations of Firefighters through HEART (Healing Emergency and Response Team) that provided temporary trailers for offices and treatment.

“These folks lost a lot of brothers on September 2001,” Wendy said by way of introduction.

On this spring afternoon, we saw flags waving and BBQs being lit on tidy patios while neighbors chatted. It looked as if nothing had changed; on the outside the houses looked safe and sound, but, I would soon learn that was not the case.

My first NADA patient, “Marcie” (not her real name) would tell me her own story and, after her treatment, she took us to see her destroyed house. It stood apparently unscathed with its aluminum siding in tact.

“What happened?” I asked my patient.

She hesitated a minute, then began this story:

“I was filling every bottle in the house all day
…just in case.

The rain did not stop at all; so, I was really relieved when the kids finally got home. We had dinner and kept watching.. When I saw the water about to cover the running board of my Volvo, I asked my daughter to go with me to move it to higher ground.

As soon as we got in, the car went floating.

The guys across the street were yelling something we couldn’t hear. But, I did not want to be drowned in the car. I didn’t want to panic and was relieved to see a light post and told my daughter to hold onto me and that we were going to go grab the post. I don’t know how to swim and the water had gone from knee high to waist high after the waves washed in. All the lights were out and I could not tell if we were in the Jamaica Bay or still on the block. We just had to make a run for the house…

The water was already up my four steps and, when I opened the door I could hear waves lapping in the kitchen!

When the water had risen half way to the second floor and the refrigerator was floating around, I went down to collect canned goods, in case we were stranded on the second floor. I thought, for sure, I would die by getting pinned by the bobbing refrigerator, but the kids formed a brigade line and somehow things got handed upstairs.”

Seeing “Marcie” getting so excited, Wendy gently declared “quiet time” saying that if the patients get reactivated, they may not get all possible benefits.

While the patients soaked in the tranquility of this space, I chatted up the two crisis counselors, who work for the Visiting Nurses of New York. They and 25 more staff members had gone knocking door to door as part of the teams of social workers, who helped over 20,000 victims through the situation. But, in this small shipping container that served as a shared office for VNS and CRREW, they were gingerly “play testing” some of the donated “comfort bears.”

Watching them cuddle their bears “Marcie” told me that she was thinking of sending her own stuffed animal on to the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

As we drove to her house “Marcie” would tell us that she is both accepting and hopeless.

“I don’t have the money to make repairs I just have to wait until the volunteers get around to me, again. People had volunteered to install dry wall and, later, a group of small young had women crawled under the house to clean out the debris. They told me that I have four types of mold in between the walls,” her voice trailed off..

Then would recall the “scariest part” was not living for a week without electricity or that, like the days after 9/11, the cell towers were not working.

“It was when we got the news a day later that Breezy Point had burnt to the ground. We really had no idea what was going on in the world even though we could smell the smoke all around us.”

By sundown, we found ourselves back in Manhattan. And, Wendy told me that I had earned my NADA certification. I was most grateful to her for the chance to meet some of the brave victims and caring persons that CRREW has been working with in the aftermath of the ferocious storm.

Mayans Relax with Yoga at Traditional Chinese Medicine Jornada

“Muuuuy Bieeeeen,” Maribel Gil crooned as her Mayan students moved their hands in a dancerly fashion.

A translator replicated her tone and echoed approval in her own honeyed Quiche “Uuuuttttttzzzz.”

And, “very good” it was.

All around, the Mayans exhaled deeply, slowly and Maribel continued to purr her welcome encouragements as she guided group after group through a series of postures. Almost everyone would attempt to reach for the sky and feel for the earth before getting triaged into the treatment room or moxa circle.  But, moment by moment the Maya were being profoundly relaxed by Ms. Gil and her colleague, Maria-Antonietta Zarate, L.Ac..  Each successive group enjoyed the benefit of a deftly created safe space and the way the teachers authentically engaged them.

The lithe ladies demonstrated smooth stretches at an adagio pace and their students were immediately soothed. Sometimes it took the students more than curiosity to enter the circle; some of them needed courage to sit in such a vulnerable way – with their eyes closed.  Even so, with their arms opening wide above them and their feet planted on the floor, they carefully twisted themselves into unfamiliar positions and appeared to breathe more freely.  They practiced the exercises as best they could while balancing babies on their laps and backs and explored the practice along with their neighbors and relatives.   One or the other of the cat-like instructors passed among them to adjust their forms and to coax them into lengthening their spines just a little bit more.

The Yoga movement classes that were unpacked by this Traditional Chinese Medicine Workshop were not just very lovely to see but they (along with the self-defense) are very valuable take-aways for the local team members.  Of course, the patients who arrived at the Barbara Ford Center for Peace seeking treatment seemed to take in the instruction and  follow along, but Health Promoters, like Rosa and Magdelena would fix their full attentions on more than the very graceful actions.  They are keen to integrate such natural techniques into their practices.  Rosa might put a hand to out to steady somebody but, for the most part, she was serious in her study; memorizing the forms and presentation. She was drinking in the precious wisdom brought by the two chic and joyous yoginis.  After the day of lightening up the battered souls of Cotzal, Maria-Antonette noticed that the classes “…softened evident hardness.”

Following Dr. Joan Boccino’s lead into Guatemala, this trip’s coordinator, Dan Wunderlich, L.Ac. invited the Spanish speaking Yoga instructors as part of his elegant treating team.  Clearly, the instruction offered a very therapeutic diversion for people who are only too used to waiting on line for everything. The movement circles accommodated twenty or so people, lasted about 20-30 minutes. The calming array of poses and simple breathing techniques succeeded wildly in unwinding anxious patients and also worked to reduce the friction associated with intake process.  For this alone, Chair Yoga is truly a thoughtful and ultra-Utz addition.

“Muuuuy Bieeeeen”, canturreó Maribel Gil como sus estudiantes mayas movían sus manos de una manera dancerly.

Un traductor replicar su tono y se hizo eco de la aprobación en su propio Quiche miel “Uttttttzzzz”.
Y, “muy bueno” que era.
A su alrededor, los mayas exhaló profundamente, despacio y Maribel continuó ronronear sus estímulos bienvenida como guió un grupo tras otro a través de una serie de posturas. Casi todo el mundo que tratan de alcanzar el cielo y sentir por la tierra antes de ser priorizadas en la sala de tratamiento o círculo moxa. Pero, momento a momento los mayas estaban profundamente relajado por la Sra. Gil y su colega, Maria-Antonietta Zarate, L.Ac.. Cada grupo sucesivo disfrutado el beneficio de un espacio creado con destreza seguro y la forma en que los maestros auténticamente comprometidos.

Las señoras ágiles demostrado estiramientos suaves a un ritmo adagio y sus estudiantes se calmó de inmediato. A veces se llevaban a los estudiantes más que la curiosidad de entrar en el círculo, algunos de ellos necesitaba coraje para sentarse de forma vulnerable – con los ojos cerrados. Aún así, con los brazos por encima de la apertura amplia a ellos ya sus pies plantados en el suelo, con cuidado se torció en posiciones desconocidas y parecía respirar con mayor libertad. Ellos practicaban los ejercicios lo mejor que pudieron, mientras que los bebés de equilibrio en el regazo y la espalda y exploraron la práctica junto con sus vecinos y familiares. Uno u otro de los instructores de gato pasó entre ellos para ajustar sus formas y para convencer a alargar sus espinas sólo un poco más.
Las clases de yoga en movimiento que fueron desembalados por este Taller de Medicina Tradicional China no sólo eran muy bonito de ver, pero ellos (junto con la legítima defensa) son muy valiosos comida para llevar para los miembros del equipo local. Por supuesto, los pacientes que llegaron en el Centro para la Paz Barbara Ford en busca de tratamiento parecía tener en la instrucción y seguir adelante, pero los promotores de salud, como Rosa y Magdalena fijaría su atención completa en más de las acciones muy graciosos. Ellos están dispuestos a integrar estas técnicas naturales en sus prácticas. Rosa podría poner una mano para salir con alguien estable, pero, en su mayor parte, lo decía en serio en su estudio, la memorización de las formas y presentaciones. Ella estaba bebiendo en la preciosa sabiduría traída por los dos yoginis elegantes y alegres. Después del día de aligerar las almas maltrechas Cotzal, Maria-Antonette observado que las clases “… suavizó la dureza evidente”.
Líder de viaje, Dan Wunderlich, L.Ac. invitó a los instructores de habla hispana yoga como parte de su equipo de tratamiento elegante. Es evidente que la instrucción que se ofrece una diversión muy terapéutico para las personas que están más que acostumbrados a esperar en línea para todo. El movimiento rodea alojados una veintena de personas, duró unos 20-30 minutos. El conjunto de poses y calmar técnicas sencillas de respiración éxito salvajemente en desenrollar los pacientes ansiosos y también trabajó para reducir la fricción asociada con el proceso de admisión. Sólo por esto, yoga de la silla es verdaderamente un complemento reflexivo y ultra Utz-.
