We now offer complete Stroke Recovery Program In Kitsap County. The combination of Stem Cell Therapy and Chinese Medicine now treats and speeds up the recovery of an Ischemic Stroke. Trials concluded that rtPA and stem cells given within 6 hours of a stroke significantly increased the odds of being alive and independent at final follow-up, particularly in patients treated within 3 hours. No matter how far along the stroke recovery, brain repair can be stimulated.
Our results from individual patient data meta-analyses of nearly 18,000 randomized patients on high quality trials provide the most robust evidence to date that acupuncture is a reasonable referral option for patients with chronic pain.

Brand new RESEARCH is now revealing how inflammatory Arthritis is getting treated by stem cells.
Here is a live Radio Interview about NatureWorks new Stem Cell Therapy! Check it out!
Bernhard Langer with has 62 career PGA wins and recently won his 10th senior major. An achievement that no other professional golfer has done before him. Hans-Thomas had the privilege to meet Bernhard, a fellow German country man, at the Boeing classic 2017. The Golf legend received two acupuncture treatments from Hans-Thomas during that week and we spend time together on the Golf course. It was an honor to be able to meet Bernhard and watch his impressive practice regiment. Success comes from hard and dedicated work!
Now you can avoid costly and painful artificial joint replacements. Even if the Osteo-arthritis condition is advanced there is always some natural cartilage left in the joint. Cartilage has limited repair capabilities: Because chondrocytes are bound in a small space, they cannot migrate to damaged areas. Therefore, cartilage damage is difficult to heal. Also, because hyaline cartilage does not have a blood supply, the deposition of new matrix is slow. The Stem Cells Tissue source we use is ideal for the the restoration of damaged or arthritic joints. Adipose tissue stem cells, cortisone injections, and other medicines offer a temporary cure for some of these injuries or diseases; while amniotic stem cells have the capability to restore the regenerative tissue and bone back to its original condition. One of the prime components of amniotic stem cell therapy is the hyaluronic acid that is known to lubricate your joints and tendons, easing pain and restoring your mobility. Several weeks after injection of the amniotic stem cells a significant improvement in cartilage growth, ligament and tendon stability can be noticed.
In addition, the stem cell therapy provides a natural boost of cartilage growth due to the inclusion of over 200 growth factors and cytokines that stimulate cellular regeneration.
For Stroke Recovery Natureworks is now offering programs including Chinese Herbal Medicine, Electro-Acupuncture, Bioness and now Stem Cell Therapy.
Until recently, it was believed that damage to the brain tissue was permanent. Now the re-growth of brain cells and improvements of neurological function has been documented.
Large numbers of active stem cells are needed to implement the re-growth of nerve tissue. There are options to use the patient's own stem cells which are harvested from abdominal fat or bone marrow, activated and put back into the body. However recently Stem Cells from Amniotic source have been proven to be even more effective. The cells migrate to the brain and implement growth. The procedure is safe and proven to activate cells around the suffering brain tissue to catalyze rapid healing and to improve brain function. Stem cell treatment improves bending and straightening of the joints and adding more agility in fingers. Muscle strength and control of limbs are improved as well.
Please contact Natureworks for more information.
On the first and 3rd Monday of every Month, NatureWorks will host a 1 hr Qi Gong and Meditation Class in the NatureWorks office Mo 6:30 pm. The session will consist of a 20 min Qi Gong session with breath training followed by 2 more 20 min Mediation session. Please RSVP since space is limited and bring a comfy blanket.
Hans-Thomas has recently published an article on the abuse of sham procedures in the validation of clinical acupuncture outcomes in the International Journal Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (Acupuncture Studies: Are They Done with Sham or Scam?). You can download a copy here.

Dear WEAMA Members,
Good news! L & I is beginning the process to add East Asian Medicine Practitioners as approved providers to serve injured workers in WA State!
We received confirmation from Leah Hole-Marshall, L&I -Medical Administrator, that they are going to proceed with policy options for adding acupuncture for low back pain as a covered L&I service. This will initiate the agency rulemaking process. They will submit a CR 101 soon to start the official regulatory process. The process may take some more time but the patient can start requestion acupuncture treatments for their claims.
Hans-Thomas has received extensive training in Non-Violent Communication based on Marshall Rosenberg's 4 step technique and principle of mediation.

How does Acupuncture work?
The easiest way to understand Acupuncture is in the the treatment of pain. After an injury the pain signals from the peripheral nervous system reach the central nervous system and there are specific pain areas established in the brain involved in chronic pain. According the gate theory a complex interplay of periferal and central nervous system is initiated. A neurogenic "highway" is established between the brain and the site of injury. It is the brains' job to "protect" the area of concern and start a healing process. However this process is often COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE due to failure of the repair process. The Acupuncture breaks this highway and down regulates the inflammatory process. Needles are not locally inserted into the pain areas but in corresponding "distal" locations. When this process is repeated several times in course of weeks or month, the pain center in the brain reverses and disappears and so does the chronic pain.
When answering this complex question one has to keep in mind what conditions are being treated. No condition stands on its own and everything is connected as a whole body!
Traditional Chinese medicine explains Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as Qi— believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body's natural process to inhibit pain, regulated the immune system and increase blood flow.
At Natureworks Acupuncture, we practice the "Balance Method" which is based on I-Ching Acupuncture theory. I-Ching theory explains how life unfolds through origin, growth and completion. Humans are part an inseparable trinity of heaven, human and earth forming the universe. Yin and Yang is the binary system and its this theory forms the Early Heaven Ba Gua, the structure of the 8 trigrams.which form a perfect numerological system of opposites. This system ultimately led to the well known 5 phases or Wu Xing and directly applies to the human body as part of the " Universal Supreme Ultimate" or Tai Ji.
At Natureworks Acupuncture we strongly believe that these systems of opposites ultimately reflect the balances of Yin and Yang. The state of disease is Qi stagnation caused by imbalances of Yin and Yang. Targeting specific Yin and Yang Meridians in opposites of (eg. foot - hand, ankle -wrist, knee - elbow) and distal relationships is the ultimate and original form of Acupuncture as described in the Nei Jing Su Wen.
In simple terms by treating the balancing points on the corresponding Meridians the normal Qi flow is restored. Qi and Blood can get to the area or organ of concern and healing is initiated.
Autoimmune Diseases and The Food we put in our Bodies are tightly linked. Much Research now shows the integrate relationship of food toxins and the "Leaky Gut" phenomenon. However keep in mind that Everyone is different! Only Chinese Medicine has Nutritional Programs available tailored to your individual constitution.

Chinese Medicine recognizes that a well functioning digestion is at the center of your health. Your digestion is like the engine of your car. It is responsible for Qi, Nutrition and Blood to your organs and muscles.
Interestingly, Digestive Health isn’t usually the reason that people come to an Acupuncture treatment, but when going through the medical history, it usually comes up. The sad thing is that most people live with digestive problems when in TCM they are relatively easy to fix with a little treatment ,nutritional counseling and some tips on how to help support and strengthen our digestions.
Untreated Digestive Problems don't usually get better by themselves and can end up in Chronic Gastritis, Ulcers and serious intestinal disorders such as Diverticulitis and Colits. When the Spleen is weak, we see prolapse of organs (uterus, bladder, stomach), prolapse of the vagina as well as things like hemorrhoids (prolapse of the anus, PLUS bleeding also attributed to the Spleen).
We live in a Spleen deficient culture. We are constantly taking in information, and that information has to be processed by, you guessed it, the Spleen. We eat in front of the TV (taking in food, and stimulus at the same time), we are constantly looking at our mobile devices on the road and wherever we go, and we are always multitasking. Never doing just one thing at a time. And thus, we are overloading our poor Spleen.
Here are a few easy tips to help you get started on your own.
- Eat regular warm meals and avoid cold drinks!
- Eat mindful and chew your food!
- Eat according to the seasons!
Here at NatureWorks Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine almost nothing goes to the landfill. As there is no way in modern Medicine to go without sterilized packaging, the carbon footprint of an Acupuncture Clinic is minimal. All Acupuncture supplies are produced and shipped in minimal efficient packaging with multiple components per package. All packaging for Acupuncture and Herbs is ultimately recyclable. Bottles for Herbal Prescriptions are sterilized and re-used many times. While used needles are considered a bio-hazard they could simply be melted down to become part of the metal recycling process in the future. The typical volume of needle waste of an average clinic is 1-2 Gal per year. An average Hospital produces 40 tons of medical waste a year (1). Although these statistics do not exist, Natureworks estimates that this equivalents to 4kg of waste per patient visit per year. This is compared to less than 1 gram of waste per patient visit per year at Natureworks.
