    FINALS! Just the word can trigger a stress response for many people. Most of us have experienced some level of test anxiety in our life whether it began at an early age, kicked up in High School when preparing for college admittance exams, or in college when trying to earn the challenging A. But all of that stress can actually hinder our ability to focus on the minute details required for a successful grade.

    In 2006, Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) launched their Military Stress Recovery Project with a single clinic using acupuncture to treat veterans. Ten years later, the program has grown to more than 30 affiliated clinics across the country, one of which operates just across the Bay in San Francisco under the name BAYVAC (Bay Area Veteran’s Acupuncture Clinic). Bamboo Pharmacy is thrilled to be a sponsor of this unique program and we recently dropped by to see their clinic in action and to share some of our herbal formulas.

    Sometimes called “chi gung” or “chi kung,” qigong is an exercise method that incorporates both moving and still meditation, massage, and even meditation using sound. Part of the 3,000-year-old traditional healing system in China, the effectiveness of qigong has benefited millions of people for thousands of years along with acupuncture and herbal formulas.

    We love a good cup of tea, and with the thousands of articles talking about its health benefits, what’s not to love? But with more than 3000 varieties of tea, how do you choose what’s right for you? According to legend, the story of tea began in China in 2737 BC. The Chinese herb Master Shen Nong (“Divine Farmer”) was sitting beneath a tree boiling water for drinking when some leaves from the tree blew into the water. Shen Nong decided to try the accidentally created infusion, and a grand tradition was born. The tree was Camellia sinensis, from which we gather our tea leaves for the tea we drink today.

    What’s so “super” about superfoods? Super FoodsWe’ve all heard the term “superfood,” but what does it really mean? What makes a food “super”?
