COVID, Your Immune System,
& Food and Lifestyle Choices

It’s not a coincidence that the co-morbidities that COVID-19 exploits: heart disease, high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, diabetes and obesity are the same health issues that arise from animal-based eating! Our affordable, plant-based dietitian, Kirsten Puskar is available to help you transition to a more whole foods, plant-based lifestyle (many insurances accepted). If you’re just starting out, you can also book a $45 intro session online with Elise to arrange for a lifestyle/nutrition consult (or call 215-266-5757). This call is for people who want to discover how easy it can be to incorporate more plants in their diet, and why.

Our latest, greatest testimonial!

I’ve been coming to Community Acupuncture of Mt. Airy (CAMA) for about 8 months, for chronic pain, acid reflux and IBS which  were affecting my quality of life…The care I receive is excellent. I always feel that I am genuinely cared about as a whole person and that my health and well-being is as important to them as it is to me. I am especially grateful for Elise who has been a supportive, encouraging and loving teacher during my transition to a plant-based diet, through the death of my mother and through the ups and downs on my path to wellness. I still have a ways to go, but I feel better than I have in many years!
Acupuncture will always be a part of my life and part of my overall wellness plan because CAMA makes it affordable to do that. It is wonderful for specific ailments, for overall well-being and for feeling balanced emotionally which is significant in these uncertain times. CAMA is a beautiful place and wonderful environment to work on health and well-being. I can’t recommend acupuncture and CAMA highly enough!  –A.D.  March 2020
