Bob Doane Presentation on Eastern MedicineClub Member Bob Doane started the Acupuncture and Wellness Center in Poulsbo nearly twenty years ago. The clinic is now the largest privately owned Chinese medicine clinic in the USA, and it attracts people from many countries. His method of acupuncture has been franchised, and is being taught and used all over the world. They’ll be opening 10 clinics a month for the next four years, expanding to Canada next, and then China. Bob talked about health and how to stay healthy as we age, and the importance of the unrestricted flow of blood through the cardiovascular system to deliver highly oxygenated blood and nutrients. Chinese medicine is cardiovascular medicine, using acupuncture to alleviate pain and herbs to maintain health. He said it is extremely good at treating chronic problems, where Western medicine often falls short. He explained some of the physiology behind acupuncture and its role in offsetting the opiate crisis facing our nation. (70% of the whole world’s opiates are produced in the US.) He cautioned that 60% of Americans have “pre clinical heart problems” causing fatigue, anxiety, and insomnia, which many can relate to. He offered free pulse diagnoses after the meeting, and opportunities to follow up at the clinic, with the proceeds of the initial evaluation coming back to the club. Thank you, Bob!
