Kamwo Pharmacy : New York

on Fri, 08/07/2009 - 13:30

There is many a belated post to put on here from the last two weeks, with my trip to New York for a work seminar followed by a trip to Colombia for a wedding after that, I have fallen behind! First, I'll back track and share a few pictures from Kamwo Pharmacy in New York, where I did an externship in 2002 whilst getting my M.S. in Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Summer and it's lovely slow heat has finally gotten me, coupled with a few trips (to New York and Bogota), I have been neglecting the spice doc updates!

Since corn just happens to be in season and I also just happen to be getting a lot of patients which I have prescribed this decoction for, I thought I would share it on here. It also has such a lovely name: corn silk.

I just read an article in today's New York Times 'Dining & Wine' section that sent me to this lovely link (Rural Bounty) where you can search all the farms local to you, along with CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture), wineries, pick your own fruit places, farmers markets, farm stores, events, and farm lodging. If you are so inclined to explore this type of thing (I am, at every opportunity I get). Here it is.

Babies and Pies

Ever wonder what a good alternative present would be to give someone who just gave birth? It's been a while since I posted a proper full on recipe and so I thought I'd share a recent dish I made for two women who just had beautiful babies. Often I am asked to share, prescribe, or cook medicinal foods for specific conditions or situations.
