>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY
WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS
AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES
IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD WITH YOUR HOST--SHERYL BORDEN.
>> I'M SO GLAD YOU JOINED ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING."
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE TREAT POPS. WE'LL TALK ABOUT
THE BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE AND FIND OUT HOW TO USE CANDLES
TO MAKE SPECIAL EVENTS EVEN MORE SPECIAL. ONE OF MY GUESTS
IS NANCY SILER, AND SHE'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE HOW TO MAKE
TREAT POPS, WHICH ARE SWEET INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS OF CAKE
LAYERED WITH ICING OR A FAVORITE FILLING AND TOPPED WITH
A FESTIVE ACCENT SUITABLE FOR ANY OCCASION. NANCY'S WITH
WILTON BRANDS IN WOODRIDGE, ILLINOIS. ANOTHER GUEST
IS DR. DANIEL MAREZ, AND HE'S A DOCTOR OF ORIENTAL MEDICINE,
AND HE'S ALSO WRITTEN A BOOK ON RELIEVING PAIN. DR. MAREZ
IS GOING TO EXPLAIN WHAT ACUPUNCTURE CAN AND CANNOT DO.
HE'LL ALSO TALK ABOUT HOW TO CHOOSE AN ACUPUNCTURIST,
THE EXPENSE INVOLVED, AND HE'LL DISCUSS INSURANCE COVERAGE.
HE LIVES IN RATON, NEW MEXICO.
AND WE'LL BEGIN THE SHOW TODAY WITH MELANIE THAYN, WHO IS
AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT WITH PARTYLITE, WHICH IS
LOCATED IN PLYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS. MELANIE WILL SHOW
US HOW CANDLES MAKE ALL EVENTS SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND GIFTS
EVEN MORE SPECIAL. SHE SAYS IT'S IMPORTANT TO CREATE
A WOW FACTOR AT EVERY EVENT, AND CANDLES CAN HELP DO THIS.
MELANIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING, BUT MOST OF ALL,
THANK YOU FOR BRINGING ALL OF THESE BEAUTIFUL CANDLES
AND CANDLEHOLDERS.
>> OH, YOU'RE MORE THAN WELCOME.
AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING US.
>> WELL, AND WHAT WE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT WAS HOW DO YOU ADD
THAT I GUESS YOU COULD CALL IT THAT WOW FACTOR TO ENTERTAINING?
>> YEAH. THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO WITH CANDLES
THAT CAN REALLY ADD FOR THE WOW FACTOR. OF COURSE, A LOT OF
PEOPLE START OFF BY THINKING OF SPECIAL OCCASIONS AS GIFT
GIVING. SO I WANT TO KIND OF START OFF WITH THAT A LITTLE
BIT. I PUT TOGETHER A BASKET HERE OF OUR FORBIDDEN FRUITS
COLLECTION, AND THIS COLLECTION ESPECIALLY APPEALS TO BOTH
OUR MOTHERS' AGES, OUR AGES, AND TEENAGERS, SO IT'S SUCH
A BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION. WE HAVE REED DIFFUSER, LIP GLOSSES,
VOTIVE HOLDERS IN JARS.
>> EVERYTHING TO PAMPER US.
>> YES. IT'S A GREAT GIFT FOR MOTHER'S DAY, BIRTHDAYS,
VALENTINE'S DAY, SO LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THAT LINE.
>> IT'S COLORFUL. THAT'S PART OF THAT WOW FACTOR WE WANTED TO
TALK ABOUT WAS COLOR.
>> ABSOLUTELY. AND THAT BRINGS US OVER HERE. AND YOU CAN SEE
IN THESE VOTIVE HOLDERS HERE, I HAVE THE GREEN WHICH BLENDS SO
WELL WITH THE MIDDLE DISPLAY, BUT COLOR REALLY CAN MAKE
A DIFFERENCE. SOME IDEAS ARE WHEN YOU DO A SPECIAL OCCASION,
SAY FOR 4TH OF JULY, YOU CAN DO RED, WHITE, AND BLUE CANDLES,
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ALL THE SAME COLOR.
>> IF YOU HAVE THE CANDLEHOLDERS, THAT JUST SHOWS
HOW VERSATILE THEY ARE.
YOU CAN CHANGE IT WITH PARTY OR WITH SEASON.
>> EXACTLY.
>> WHAT ABOUT INDOOR/OUTDOOR?
SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE TO ENTERTAIN OUTSIDE.
>> RIGHT, THEY DO. AND LANTERNS ARE VERY, VERY POPULAR IN
DECORATING. BUT YOU CAN REALLY BRING THOSE INSIDE BECAUSE THEY
ARE SUCH MAGNIFICENT PIECES.
>> THEY'RE ALMOST THE FOCAL POINT OF SOMETHING.
>> ABSOLUTELY. AND THE TYPE OF GLASS THAT THE LANTERN HAS
CAN REALLY GIVE SOME GREAT REFLECTIONS. FIREPLACE MAN--
HEARTHS ARE PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF THINGS. AND I LOVE
DOING THE 3 WICKS IN THEM 'CAUSE THEY GIVE OFF
SO MUCH LIGHT.
>> WE TALKED ABOUT THE LITTLE VOTIVES, AND WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
THE 3 WICK.
WHAT ABOUT BURNING TIME?
>> BURNING TIMES VARY DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE CANDLE.
WITH YOUR VOTIVES AND YOUR TEA LIGHT-SIZE CANDLES,
WHICH ARE THE SMALLER ONES, YOU USUALLY DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT HOW LONG YOU'RE BURNING THEM. I ALWAYS LIKE TO TELL
PEOPLE IF IT'S GOT A LAYER OF LIQUEFIED WAX ACROSS THE TOP,
YOU'VE BURNED IT LONG ENOUGH.
WITH A 3-WICK, IT IS A LITTLE BIT MORE OF AN INVESTMENT
OF YOUR TIME. SO 3 WICKS ARE 6 INCHES ACROSS, SO THE
MINIMUM BURNING TIME IS 6 HOURS.
SO THEY'RE IDEAL FOR ENTERTAINING BECAUSE TYPICALLY,
YOU WILL LIGHT THEM BEFORE YOUR GUESTS ARRIVE, AND THEN YOUR
GUESTS ARE THERE FOR A LITTLE WHILE. SO YOU CAN GET THEM--
>> YOU CAN COUNT ON THEM.
>> YES.
>> WE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE BECAUSE
TALK ABOUT VERSATILITY.
>> YES, AND THAT'S ONE THING I LOVE AS A VERY BUSY PERSON.
I LOVE TO DECORATE, BUT I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO TAKE EVERYTHING
DOWN AND THEN PUT NEW STUFF UP.
I PREFER TO HAVE PIECES LIKE THIS WHERE YOU CAN JUST CHANGE
WHAT'S INSIDE OF IT.
>> RIGHT NOW, YOU HAVE WHITE ROSES, JUST SILK ROSES...
>> LITTLE--FUN LITTLE BIG DIAMOND RING.
SO WHETHER IT BE FOR A WEDDING OR FOR AN ANNIVERSARY, BUT THIS
COMES OUT VERY EASILY, OK, AND WE CAN TAKE THESE THINGS OUT
AND YOU CAN SEE HOW QUICK, AND IT'S ALMOST AS SIMPLE
AS SOMETHING THAT YOUR KIDS COULD DO AND KIND OF HAVE FUN
WITH THE DECORATING, AND YOU JUST THROW SOME LEAVES IN THERE.
>> SO INSTEAD OF PUTTING ALL THE DECORATIONS UP EACH SEASON,
ALL YOU'RE DOING IS THE INSIDES.
>> EXACTLY. EXACTLY.
SO IT LOOKS SO BEAUTIFUL, AND YOU JUST PUT THAT GLOW-LIGHT
PILLAR, WHICH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PILLARS...
>> I DO LIKE THAT, BUT I COULD ALSO SEE THE OTHER COLORS
FROM THE LEAVES.
YOU COULD CHANGE THAT.
>> RIGHT. AND I'LL SHOW YOU ONE MORE. I'M A BIG ORNAMENT
PERSON, SO AT THE HOLIDAYS, AND I HAVE TEENAGERS, SO WE DO
A LOT OF BRIGHT COLORS INSTEAD OF TRADITIONAL COLORS.
>> THOSE NEON.
>> MM-HMM. AND YOU CAN JUST ADD SOME ORNAMENTS DOWN IN THERE
AND HAVE-- >> THERE'S ONE RIGHT--
>> YEAH. CAN YOU GET IT FOR ME?
>> THERE.
>> OK. AWESOME. THANKS.
SO, VERY SIMPLE.
>> AND HALLOWEEN--WOULDN'T THAT BE FUN TO PUT MAYBE CANDIED CORN
IN IT OR SOMETHING?
>> I LOVE DOING CANDY CORN OR PUMPKINS BECAUSE THEY HAVE
THE MOST LONGEVITY IN DECORATING 'CAUSE YOU CAN USE PUMPKINS
AND CANDY CORN FROM SEPTEMBER TO THE END OF NOVEMBER,
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE AS MANY THINGS.
>> I LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK.
AND NOW THIS IS JUST ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR IN FRONT
AND READY FOR A PARTY.
>> ABSOLUTELY. THIS TRAY IS REALLY A GREAT BASE PIECE
BECAUSE ALL YOU HAVE TO CHANGE IS WHAT'S ON THE TRAY TO FIT
THE SEASON. I KIND OF WENT WITH THE WINE-AND-CHEESE THEME HERE.
YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE SMALLER OF THE HURRICANE I PUT
SOME CORKS IN IT.
>> I HADN'T EVEN REALIZED THAT WAS THE SAME PIECE
ON A MINIATURE.
>> THE SAME COLLECTION, YEAH.
YOU CAN DO A CANDLE GARDENS THROUGH THE FRONT-SIZE PILLARS
AND THEN PUT SOME ORNAMENTS AROUND FOR CHRISTMAS
OR SOME PINE CONES.
JUST THE SKY'S THE LIMIT, BUT IT'S A GREAT BASE PIECE
FOR ALL YEAR ROUND AS WELL.
>> ONE THING YOU POINTED OUT TO ME EARLIER WAS SOME OF
THE PIECES IN THE COLLECTION ARE FOOD SAFE. THIS ONE ISN'T.
SO PEOPLE DO NEED TO KNOW THAT.
>> CORRECT. THAT IS CORRECT.
>> USE THIS AS A SERVING, A CENTERPIECE.
>> YES. AS A BASE PIECE.
ABSOLUTELY. AND THAT'S WHY WE JUST DID FAKE GRAPES.
>> VERY SMART.
>> BUT IT TIES TO THE THEME, AND IT'S FUN, SO...
>> AND THEN THESE THREE, AGAIN, ARE PART OF THIS COLLECTION
AND, UH, GOSH, WE COULD DO LOTS OF THINGS WITH THESE.
>> YES. I LOVE THE TRIO BECAUSE WITH THE TRIO, YOU CAN ACTUALLY
DO AN ENTIRE THEME, BUT 3 DIFFERENT THINGS IN EACH HOLDER.
SO, AGAIN, SAY GOING BACK TO A HOLIDAY LIKE 4TH OF JULY,
YOU CAN DO FLAGS IN ONE, LITTLE MINIATURE FLAGS IN ONE,
YOU CAN DO STARS IN ANOTHER ONE, SO YOU CAN REALLY TIE
ALL OF THOSE IN, AND THEY HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT
IN EVERY ONE.
>> AND I'VE EVEN SEEN NOW THEY HAVE, IT LOOKS LIKE ORNAMENTS,
BUT THEY'RE IN THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE, SO YOU COULD PUT
SEVERAL OF THOSE IN.
>> YOU CAN GET SO CREATIVE, AND EVEN KIDS HAVE A LOT OF FUN
WITH COMING UP WITH IDEAS.
>> GOSH, WITH A FEW PIECES-- AND WHAT I LIKE IS JUST LIKE
YOU SAID. YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE THESE ALL SOMEWHERE--UPSTAIRS
OR IN THE ATTIC OR IN YOUR-- WHEREVER YOU STORE YOUR THINGS--
IT'S ONLY THE INSIDE PARTS THAT HAVE TO BE MOVED.
>> EXACTLY. I'VE GOTTEN TO THE POINT NOW WHERE I JUST HAVE
LITTLE PLASTIC CONTAINERS, AND THOSE CONTAINERS ARE WHAT
CHANGES TO THE INSIDE OF THESE.
AND IT SAVES SO MUCH SPACE AND TIME.
>> IT DOES. WELL, THIS IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE YOUR IDEAS,
AND I'M ALREADY THINKING OF SOME OF MY OWN.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MELANIE.
>> THANK YOU.
>> DR. MAREZ, IT'S A REAL PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE TODAY,
AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU, WHEN I TOLD EVERYONE THAT I WORK WITH
THAT YOU WERE COMING, AND THAT YOU WERE AN ACUPUNCTURIST,
EVERYBODY VOLUNTEERED TO BE OUR GUINEA PIG TODAY,
IF YOU WILL, SO THERE'S REALLY A LOT OF INTEREST IN
ACUPUNCTURE. HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN IT?
>> WELL, FIRST, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME ON YOUR SHOW.
I APPRECIATE THAT.
I STARTED OUT IN THE MILITARY, MY MEDICAL CAREER IN THE
MILITARY. I DIDN'T KNOW--THIS WAS AT THE END OF VIETNAM,
AND THEY WERE CRANKING OUT MEDICS LEFT AND RIGHT, BECAUSE
THE AVERAGE MEDIC ONLY LASTS ABOUT 2 WEEKS IN VIETNAM
BEFORE THEY WERE WOUNDED.
SO THEY NEEDED TO REPLACE THEM, SO THAT'S HOW I STARTED
MY CAREER, AND THEN I WORKED AT A VERY LOCALE IN JAPAN
THAT WAS VERY REMOTE, SO WE HAD ONE DOCTOR, AND HE WAS A FLIGHT
SURGEON. SO HE SAID, "IF YOU SEND ME A PATIENT, THEY BETTER
BE DYING." SO I SAID, "TEACH ME." SO HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO
SHOOT X-RAYS, WE DID BLOOD WORK, AND I WAS LUCKY TO WORK FOR
SOMEBODY THAT EVERY MONTH, I GOT TO WORK IN
A DIFFERENT DEPARTMENT.
>> IT WAS ON-THE-JOB TRAINING-- >> IT WAS OJT BIG TIME, YES,
SO I REALLY ENJOYED THAT, SO WHEN I GOT OUT, I WAS A PREMED
MAJOR IN COLLEGE, AND THEN I WANTED TO PROBABLY PURSUE BEING
AN M.D., BUT THEN I STARTED NOTICING--I WORKED IN
THE EMERGENCY ROOM. I WAS IN COLLEGE. PEOPLE WERE COMING TO
THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR CHRONIC CONDITIONS, AND I THOUGHT
SOMETHING DIDN'T MAKE SENSE HERE. SO I RESEARCHED MORE,
AND I THOUGHT ACUPUNCTURE MIGHT BE MORE MY PHILOSOPHY
OF TREATING MED--OF TREATING-- >> IT'S AN ANCIENT ART,
ISN'T IT?
>> YES. IT GOES WAY BACK TO THE STONE AGE, ACTUALLY,
BUT THERE'S NO EXACT DATE, BUT I READ A ARTICLE BY
A DOCTOR. HE SAID THAT THERE'S A REALLY GOOD, EFFECTIVE
TREATMENT FOR PAIN. HE CALLED IT ACUPUNCTURE, AND THIS WAS IN
1916. THIS IS ALMOST A HUNDRED YEARS AGO HERE IN
THE UNITED STATES.
>> I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS ALWAYS CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE,
BUT I UNDERSTAND THERE'S DIFFERENT TYPES.
>> THERE'S CHINESE, JAPANESE, KOREAN, VIETNAMESE, TAIWANESE,
THERE'S AMERICAN ACUPUNCTURE.
>> AND THEY'RE ALL DIFFERENT?
>> THEY'RE ALL DIFFERENT, AND THE MAIN 2 ARE CHINESE AND
JAPANESE, AND THE DIFFERENCE IS WITH CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE,
THEY PUT THE NEEDLE IN DEEPER.
WITH JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE, THE NEEDLE'S IN MAYBE
A HUNDREDTH OF AN INCH.
VERY SHALLOW.
>> WHICH DO YOU PREFER?
>> I DIAGNOSE WITH CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE, BUT MY NEEDLE
TECHNIQUE IS JAPANESE.
IT'S MORE PATIENT-FRIENDLY.
THE NEEDLES DON'T HURT.
AND THE RESULTS ARE INSTANT.
INSTANT RESULTS.
>> I GUESS THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING, SO TO SPEAK, AND TERRY
HAS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. SHE-- WHEN I--WHEN SHE VOLUNTEERED
TO DO THIS, I SAID, "WHERE DO YOU HAVE PAIN?" AND SHE SAID,
"OH, EVERYWHERE." AND I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING BEFORE
WE STARTED, CAME IN HERE, YOU TREATED THE NERVES. NOW WHY?
>> YES. SOMETIMES I'LL GET PATIENTS WITH MULTIPLE-SITE
PAINS, SO BEFORE I DO TREATMENTS FOR EACH PAIN, I SET UP THE
WHOLE BODY TO RELAX HER NERVES.
THAT WAY, SHE'S MORE RECEPTIVE FOR THE TREATMENTS. AND A LOT OF
TIMES, WHEN YOU DO THE WHOLE NERVE TREATMENT, THE PAIN
WOULD GO AWAY.
>> THEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ELSE?
>> SOMETIMES I DON'T EVEN DO IT.
THAT'S IT. YEAH.
>> DID YOU RELAX ENOUGH THAT ANY PAIN WENT AWAY?
>> I FELT COMPLETELY PAIN FREE WHEN I WAS FINISHED.
YEAH, ALL OVER.
>> LET'S SEE HOW YOU DO THIS, BECAUSE I HAVE GONE, I HAVE HAD
ACUPUNCTURE, AND MY GREATEST FEAR WAS THE NEEDLE.
>> WAS THE NEEDLE, RIGHT.
OK. THAT'S THE SAME THING WITH OTHER PEOPLE, TOO. NOBODY LIKES
NEEDLES. BUT ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID--WE TALKED BEFORE
THE TREATMENT WAS TREATING PAIN IS JUST NOT ENOUGH. WE GOT TO
FIND A PATTERN TO HER PAIN, AND SHE WAS SAYING THAT HER PAIN
WAS WORSE IN THE MORNING.
IN THE MORNING IS THE COLDEST TIME OF THE DAY, SO IF I SAID
THE COLD MAKES YOUR PAIN WORSE, WHY ARE YOU DRINKING ICE-COLD
WATER? IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
>> BUT JUST FAUCET WATER OR JUST TAP WATER.
>> I TELL PEOPLE TO GO TO ROOM TEMPERATURE. OUR BODY
TEMPERATURE'S 98.6, SO OUR BODY LIKES WARMTH. SEE? SO...
SO HERE'S A POINT FOR THIS AREA OF PAIN, AND I SEE THIS AREA
OF PAIN A LOT 'CAUSE THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE TEXTING AND
TWEETING. PEOPLE ARE ON THEIR COMPUTER A LOT. SO YOU'RE
STARTING TO SEE THIS MORE AND MORE. THERE'S A POINT RIGHT IN
HERE TO TREAT THIS, AND THE PAIN WILL GO AWAY INSTANTLY, SO FIRST
WE'RE GONNA CLEAN THE AREA.
AND I JUST TAP A NEEDLE IN VERY SHALLOW. LET ME FIND THAT TENDER
SPOT FIRST AND YOU TELL ME.
TENDER RIGHT HERE.
AND JUST TAP IT IN GENTLY.
>> THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT WAS ODD, TOO. YOU DON'T PUSH IT IN.
IT'S JUST TAPPED.
>> EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN TECHNIQUE, SO I TRY TO GO TO
A TECHNIQUE THAT'S VERY PATIENT- FRIENDLY, THAT DOESN'T HURT.
>> DID THAT HURT GOING IN?
>> I COULDN'T FEEL IT GO IN.
>> DIDN'T FEEL IT GOING IN.
I'M GONNA STIMULATE THE NEEDLE.
CAN YOU FEEL THAT?
>> YES.
>> DO YOU FEEL PAIN IN THIS AREA NOW?
>> NO.
>> NOTHING. INSTANT RESULTS.
WE LIVE IN A DRIVE-THRU SOCIETY.
>> SO SHE DOESN'T NEED TO LAY THERE OR RELAX FOR AN HOUR,
20 MINUTES OR SOMETHING IF IT'S THAT FAST?
>> YEAH, IF IT'S THAT FAST, YEAH. THE AVERAGE ACUPUNCTURE
TREATMENT NOW IS A HALF AN HOUR, AND MY TREATMENTS GO OVER AN
HOUR BECAUSE NOBODY CO--NOT MANY PEOPLE COME IN WITH ONE PAIN.
THEY SAY, "OH, I GOT MY NECK AND MY HIP, MY BACK," SO I'M
SAYING, "YOU'RE HERE. LET'S JUST WORK ON ALL OF IT." SEE? SO...
AND I'LL JUST LEAVE IT IN, STIMULATE IT. I MIGHT LEAVE IT
IN FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES, STIMULATE IT 3 OR 4 TIMES.
AND THEN WE TALK ABOUT THE PATTERN OF YOUR PAIN. EVERYTHING
HAS A PATTERN TO IT, SO WE WANT TO FIGURE OUT THAT PATTERN.
>> AND SINCE THIS WAS HER THUMB, AND THEN YOU PUT THE NEEDLE
ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE, IS THAT ALWAYS THE CASE THAT YOU GO TO
AN OPPOSITE SIDE?
>> NOT ALWAYS, BUT A LOT OF TIMES, IT IS. BUT THERE'S
DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACUPUNCTURE FOR PAIN. I GRAVITATED TO
INSTANT PAIN RELIEF.
>> I LIKE THAT BETTER, TOO.
>> YES. PATIENTS LIKE IT.
IN RURAL NEW MEXICO, WE'RE IN A VERY POOR AREA, SO PEOPLE,
A LOT OF TIMES, CAN'T AFFORD MULTIPLE TREATMENTS,
SO I HAVE TO HIT A GRAND SLAM WITH EVERY TREATMENT.
>> AND THAT'S WHY I THOUGHT THIS BOOK WAS SO INTERESTING. I'VE
ALREADY TRIED TO TREAT MYSELF IN A FEW PLACES. BUT THIS IS
PAIN RELIEF IN 3 SECONDS, BUT IT'S ACUPRESSURE.
>> ON ACUPUNCTURE POINTS.
THESE ARE ACUPUNCTURE POINTS.
AND THESE POINTS HAVE BEEN STUDIED FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
AND WHAT GOT ME WITH THE BOOK WAS--GOT ME GOING WITH THE BOOK
WAS A NATIVE-AMERICAN NURSE UP IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA.
PATSY AND I WERE VACATIONING UP THERE, AND EVERY TIME WE
STOPPED AT--THEY SAID, "OH--" ONE OF THE TOWNS, IT WAS THE
NATIVE-AMERICAN--THE CHIEF'S MOTHER HAD KNEE PAIN, AND SO I
TREATED HER FOR KNEE PAIN, AND WE WENT NORTH, AND WE CAME BACK
SOUTH ABOUT 3 WEEKS LATER, AND THE NURSE SAID, "SHE HASN'T HAD
ANY PAIN. SHE HASN'T ASKED FOR ANY PAIN MEDS. I WANT TO LEARN
HOW TO DO THIS." AND I SAID, "LET ME COME UP WITH SOMETHING
THAT'S EASY TO LEARN," SO I CAME UP WITH THIS BOOK,
AND, ACTUALLY, MY DEMONSTRATION IS TAILORED FOR
A NATIVE-AMERICAN NURSE WITH RESPECT TOWARDS THEIR PHILOSOPHY
TOWARDS LIFE, PHILOSOPHY TOWARDS THEIR ANIMALS, SO MY SPEECH
IS REALLY GEARED FOR NATIVE-AMERICAN NURSE.
I'VE, UH-- RECENTLY, I GOT CONTACTED BY
A DOCTOR, AND SHE WANTED TO LEARN HOW TO GET RID OF PAIN,
SO WE SPENT THE WHOLE MORNING GOING THROUGH THIS, AND SHE
CALLED ME BACK THE NEXT WEEK, AND SHE WAS THRILLED. SHE SAID,
"I'VE NEVER LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT PAIN IN MY LIFE."
SHE'S MAKING MORE MONEY.
AND THE DOCTOR BURNOUT WAS ADDRESSED. BUT THE MOST
IMPORTANT THING--PATIENT SATISFACTION SKYROCKETED.
ACTUALLY, SOME OF HER PATIENTS HAVE TOLD ME NOW SHE'S WRITING
LESS PRESCRIPTIONS, SO THAT COULD BE GOOD OR BAD.
>> BUT THIS GOES FROM THE WRIST TO THE THUMB TO THE SHOULDER,
NECK.
>> THE NEXT 30 TO 40 YEARS, ARTHRITIS IS GONNA BE THE NUMBER
ONE CONDITION, AND ARTHRITIS IS BASICALLY--
>> BECAUSE WE'RE LIVING LONGER?
>> WE'RE LIVING LONGER, TOO, BUT, UH, WE'RE ALSO A HEAVIER
SOCIETY. THERE'S WEIGHT GAIN.
THERE'S MORE OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE.
THAT PUTS MORE STRESS ON THE JOINTS. SO BASICALLY, THIS HERE
IS FOR ALL--ANY JOINT IN THE BODY. YOU CAN EVEN USE IT FOR
AREA OF PAIN. I RECENTLY HAD A LADY WHO HAD SHINGLES BEHIND
THE SHOULDER, SO I PRESSED THE SHOULDER POINT,
AND THE SHINGLE PAIN WENT AWAY.
>> AND YOU'VE TOUCHED HERE.
THAT'S A SHINGLE POINT?
>> THIS IS PAIN FOR SHOULDER.
>> FOR SHOULDER. I SEE.
>> THIS BOOK IS FOR THE AREA OF PAIN, NOT THE DIAGNOSE.
SO SHINGLES, THERE COULD BE SHINGLES ANYWHERE IN THE BODY.
SO IF IT'S IN THE CHEST, THEN I USE THE POINT FOR CHEST
PAIN. IF IT'S IN THE SHOULDER, I USE THE POINT
FOR SHOULDER PAIN.
>> DO YOU HAVE TO PRESS REALLY HARD?
>> NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
USE JUST BARELY PRESS. SOON AS YOU FEEL THE TENDER SPOT,
YOU MASSAGE IT FOR 3 SECONDS, AND THE PAIN'S GONE.
>> THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED "PAIN RELIEF IN 3 SECONDS.COM."
>> AND WHAT I'VE DONE WAS I'VE FOUND--I'VE RESEARCHED
AND I WENT TO THE BEST EAR ACUPUNCTURIST IN THE WORLD.
I WENT TO THE BEST HAND ACUPUNCTURIST IN THE WORLD.
AND I WENT TO BEST BODY ACUPUNCTURIST IN THE WORLD
FOR PAIN, AND I JUST COMBINED ALL THE POINTS AND CAME UP WITH
THIS BOOK. I SENT IT TO WASHINGTON, D.C., TO GET THE
COPYRIGHT. MAKE SURE I'M NOT STEALING ANYBODY'S MATERIAL.
IT'S ORIGINAL. IT TOOK 6 TO 7 MONTHS TO GET IT BACK, AND FROM
THIS, I WENT AND DID A PHONE APP, SO WE HAVE A PHONE APP,
AND UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO, THEY DID A STUDY ON MY BOOK AND
PHONE APP, AND THEY SAID, "RIGHT NOW, THE BEST MARKET FOR YOU
WOULD BE THE NATIVE-AMERICANS AND THE MILITARY." BECAUSE RIGHT
NOW, THE MILITARY HAS A PROBLEM WITH PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, AND
THEY'RE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM THAT. ACTUALLY, IN NEW MEXICO,
TOO, THEY'RE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM HARDCORE PAIN MEDS LIKE
HYDROCODONE, OXYCONTIN, SO RIGHT NOW, THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY
FOR PEOPLE TO USE THIS.
>> AND LIKE YOU SAY, ONCE WE LEARN ENOUGH ABOUT IT, THEN
WE'RE ABLE TO TREAT OURSELVES OR OUR FAMILY MEMBERS, SO IT'S
SAVING MONEY AND RELIEVING THAT PAIN, AND, OK, SO ONCE THIS IS--
TERRY, YOU WOULD STIMULATE THIS PERIODICALLY AND THEN TAKE
THE NEEDLE OUT.
>> JUST TAKE THE NEEDLE OUT.
NO BLOOD. ARE YOU HUMAN?
>> YES.
>> HOW DID THE-- >> FEELS GREAT.
>> YEAH.
>> WOW. OK, WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING ON AND TALKING
ABOUT YOUR BOOK, "INSTANT PAIN RELIEF BY USING ACUPRESSURE
ON PROVING ACUPUNCTURE POINTS."
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING WITH US.
>> THANK YOU.
>> NANCY, IT'S ALWAYS SO MUCH FUN TO HAVE YOU COME BECAUSE
YOUR BRING SOMETHING NEW WITH YOU EACH TIME. AT LEAST IT'S
NEW TO ME. I'VE NOT SEEN IT, AND I'M ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW THESE
TREAT POPS WILL WORK, BECAUSE I THINK THEY WOULD NOT ONLY BE
GOOD FOR KIDS PARTIES, MY GRANDCHILDREN, FOR INSTANCE,
BUT FOR ADULTS, TOO.
THEY'RE SO UNIQUE.
>> WELL, THEY ARE. THEY'RE COLORFUL, THEY'RE FUN, THEY'RE
SO EASY TO MAKE, AND THERE'S SO MANY DIFFERENT VARIETIES
THAT YOU CAN USE. YOU CAN USE THEM FOR ANY SEASON, OCCASION,
JUST BECAUSE, AND YOU CAN KIND OF PERSONALIZE THEM, AND THEY
HAVE A TOP ON THEM, SO YOU COULD GIVE THEM AS A GIFT
IF YOU WANTED TO OR A PARTY FAVOR. AND YOU CAN ARRANGE THEM
SO THAT THEY COULD ACTUALLY BE YOUR CENTERPIECE, TOO.
SO NOT ONLY IS IT DESSERT, BUT IT'S ALSO A CENTERPIECE.
AND I LIKE TO LAYER THEM WITH, OBVIOUSLY, CAKE AND ICING, BUT
YOU CAN USE DIFFERENT COLORS OF SORBET OR ICE CREAM
OR YOU CAN MIX AND MATCH, YOU KNOW, WITH ANY OTHER TYPE
OF DESSERT ITEM.
>> FRUIT OR PUDDINGS OR WHATEVER.
>> WHIPPED TOPPING IS ALSO GOOD IN THERE. WE'VE DONE THEM WITH
BLUEBERRIES, RASPBERRIES, AND YOU HAVE TO CUT YOUR
STRAWBERRIES IF YOU USE THOSE, BUT REALLY TASTY.
>> OH, GOSH. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU BUY THE SET
OF 12 TREAT POPS.
>> THEY ALSO COME IN A SET OF 6, AND THEN THERE IS A SET OF 4
IN GROCERY STORES, TOO.
SO IF YOU WANT TO TRY THEM IN SMALLER AMOUNTS, YOU CAN GET
A SMALLER SET OF THEM IF YOU WANT TO. AND IF YOU REALLY
DIDN'T WANT TO BUY THE CONTAINER, YOU COULD DO
A PARFAIT, BUT I DON'T THINK IT'S QUITE THE SAME.
>> NO, I DON'T, EITHER.
AND WHEN I WAS ASKING YOU HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU HAVE
A PIECE OF CAKE THAT FITS JUST THE RIGHT SIZE, YOU HAVE
AN ANSWER TO THAT AS WELL.
>> WE HAVE A MINI WHOOPIE PIE PAN, AND ONE CAKE MIX WILL MAKE
70 OF THESE, AND NORMALLY, IF YOU'RE DOING WHOOPIE PIES,
YOU'D USE 2, SO YOU ONLY GET 35, WHICH IS A PRETTY GOOD-SIZE
SERVING, BUT YOU CAN GET THESE AND MAKE THEM IN CHOCOLATE
OR, YOU KNOW, VIRTUALLY ANY FLAVOR YOU WANT. RED VELVET.
DONE THEM WITH RED VELVET, YOU KNOW, WITH THE WHITE ICING
IN BETWEEN. YOU CAN ALSO USE A MINI MUFFIN PAN TO MAKE--THAT
FITS THE CONTAINER. AND THEN IF YOU REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO BAKE,
YOU COULD USE 2 VANILLA WAFERS.
>> PERFECT.
>> I LIKE THE CAKE. I THINK IT'S BETTER, AND IT HOLDS UP BETTER
WITH THE ICING OR ANY KIND OF COLORING THAT YOU PUT IN BETWEEN
THERE THAN THE VANILLA WAFERS, BUT YOU COULD USE
VANILLA WAFERS, TOO.
>> LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE ONES THAT YOU'VE MADE
BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALL COLORS, YOU HAVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF
TOPPINGS. THOSE ARE BEAUTIFUL.
>> I'VE GOT THEM WITH THE STRAWBERRIES, WITH THE CUT
STRAWBERRIES, SO THAT LENDS ITSELF TO A LITTLE BIT MORE OF
AN ELEGANCE OR AN ADULT DISH OR I DON'T KNOW, A WAY TO GET
YOUR KIDS TO EAT STRAWBERRIES.
AND THEN THE OTHER IS CAKE AND ICING WITH SOME ICING
DECORATIONS, AND THERE'S LOTS OF ICING DECORATIONS OUT THERE.
I JUST KIND OF, YOU KNOW, PICKED FLOWERS 'CAUSE THOSE ARE ALWAYS
SOMETHING THAT'S, YOU KNOW, REALLY EASY TO USE, BUT, YOU
KNOW, YOU COULD ACTUALLY PUT SOCCER BALLS ON TOP IF YOU
WANT TO DO IT FOR THE KIDS, YOU KNOW, FOR, YOU KNOW, LIKE,
A TREAT.
>> THEY DON'T ALL HAVE TO MATCH.
THAT'S WHAT I WAS JUST THINKING.
I HAVE PIECES OF--FROM OTHER PARTIES, AND THERE'LL BE 3
FLOWERS LEFT OR ONE SOCCER BALL OR SOMETHING, SO THIS WOULD BE
A GREAT WAY TO USE THOSE UP.
>> IT'D BE GOOD BECAUSE YOU COULD MAKE YOUR WHOOPIE PIES,
FREEZE THEM, AND THEN WHEN THE KIDS COME HOME, YOU COULD
ACTUALLY JUST, YOU KNOW, SAY, "OH, HERE'S A TREAT POP."
YEAH. SO LET ME SHOW YOU THE BASIS OF IT. THIS IS WHAT
THE CONTAINER IS. IT'S A 3-PIECE CONTAINER, AND IT'S GOT THIS
SECTION HERE, AND IT COMES DOWN AND THERE'S ACTUALLY A SQUARE,
SO YOU LINE UP THE SQUARE AND JUST PULL THAT DOWN. NOW, THIS
HERE CAN EITHER BE THE TOP, SO IF YOU WANT TO HAVE IT
ON THE GO, OR IT CAN BE THE STAND, SO WHETHER YOU COULD
DISPLAY THEM LINED UP ON THE TABLE IF YOU WANTED TO,
OR FOR ACTUALLY BUILDING THEM.
SO I WAS JUST GOING TO BUILD ONE. I ACTUALLY
PUT A CHOCOLATE WHOOPIE IN THERE AND THEN I HAVE--THIS IS BUTTER
CREAM ICING THAT'S BEEN COLORED PINK, AND I HAVE A TIP--2A--
WHICH IS ACTUALLY IN THE TREAT POP DECORATING KIT, BUT YOU
COULD USE ANY ROUND TIP.
MAKES IT JUST A LOT EASIER.
YOU COULD ALSO USE THE 1M, WHICH IS THE LARGE CUPCAKE TIP.
>> AND I WAS THINKING IF YOU HAD THIS AS AN ACTIVITY AT A TWEENS
PARTY. YOU KNOW, JUST HAVE THE BAGS FILLED AND LET THE KIDS
DECORATE IT AS THEY WANT TO.
>> AND YOU CAN SEE YOU JUST PUT ANOTHER WHOOPIE IN...
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE REALLY, YOU KNOW, GOOD AT THIS. YOU JUST
BASICALLY GETTING YOUR ICING IN THERE. AND THEN, TO TOP IT OFF,
I WOULD JUST DO, LIKE, A ROUND AND GOING AROUND...
>> WE COULD DO A CUPCAKE.
>> MM-HMM. SO THERE'S THAT ONE.
AND LET'S JUST, SINCE THIS IS PINK AND PURPLE, AND THEN YOU
CAN SEE HOW NICELY IT JUST SITS THERE. SO LET'S DO ONE, AND THIS
ONE I DIDN'T START OFF WITH, SO I'M JUST GOING TO DROP IT IN
THE BOTTOM. AND THIS ONE, WE'LL DO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT.
WE'LL DO 2 DIFFERENT COLORS.
SO THERE'S THAT.
>> I THINK THAT'D BE FUN.
>> ANOTHER ONE.
>> AND I SEE NOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT JUST LET--IF WE PUT THE
COVER ON THE TOP, IT WOULD BE A GREAT FAVOR FOR EACH OF
THE KIDS TO GET TO TAKE HOME FROM THE PARTY.
>> I DON'T HAVE PINK.
>> LET ME GET THE BLUE OFF THIS.
>> WHAT A CONVERSATION STARTER.
>> AND FOR THE DIFFERENT HOLIDAYS, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY
YOU COULD FIGURE OUT WHAT HOLIDAY YOU MIGHT WANT TO PUT ON
TOP. SO THIS LOOKS KIND OF TROPICAL. I'M GONNA PUT THESE
LITTLE HIBISCUS ICING DECORATIONS ON TOP. I LOVE
THESE. REMINDS ME OF ISLANDS.
I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD HAVE MY FLIP-FLOPS ON. AND YOU COULD
PUT SUGARS AND SPRINKLES.
I FORGOT TO PUT SOME SPRINKLES ON THAT, BUT, YOU KNOW, ANY KIND
OF SPRINKLES OR SUGARS, YOU COULD ADD TO IT IF YOU WANTED
TO. IF YOU FORGOT, YOU COULD COME BACK IN AND STICK THEM
ON LATER.
>> OH, YEAH.
>> VERY SIMPLE. VERY EASY TO DO.
AND OBVIOUSLY IF I WAS GONNA PUT THE TOP ON THEM, I WOULDN'T
BUILD IT UP QUITE SO HIGH, AND YOU COULD PUT THE TOP ON.
BUT LIKE I SAID, YOU CAN LET THEM STAND ON THE TABLE OR
THE COUNTER, AND PEOPLE CAN PICK THEM UP AND GO, AND THEN YOU
JUST PUSH THEM UP TO EAT THEM.
>> THAT'S GREAT. NO MESS.
NO SPOONS, FORKS TO HAVE TO DO.
JUST PUSH IT UP. AND THEY'RE ALSO DISHWASHER-SAFE.
>> THEY ARE DISHWASHER-SAFE.
>> WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I'M SO GLAD YOU SHOWED US THESE.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE
LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO DO NUNO FELTING AND FIND OUT
HOW TO CHANGE BYSTANDERS INTO UPSTANDERS TO AVOID BULLYING
AMONG CHILDREN. ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS WILL DEMONSTRATE NUNO
FELTING, WHICH IS A JAPANESE FIBER ART TECHNIQUE. SHE'LL SHOW
HOW TO CREATE FABRIC FROM SILK AND WOOL ROBING BY USING SOAP,
WATER, BUBBLE WRAP, AND SOME MUSCLE. I THINK YOU'LL BE
SO SURPRISED AT THE RESULTS.
ANOTHER GUEST ON THE NEXT SHOW IS AN AUTHOR OF A CHILDREN'S
BOOK ABOUT BULLYING. HE SAYS THAT ATTENTION FROM PEERS AS
WELL AS THE FEAR OF RETALIATION AND NOT KNOWING HOW TO RESPOND
IN THE MOMENT IS WHAT CAUSES BULLYING BEHAVIOR TO CONTINUE.
HE'S GOING TO EXPLAIN HOW TO CHANGE BYSTANDERS INTO
UPSTANDERS IN ORDER TO DISCOURAGE BULLYING BEHAVIOR.
BOTH OF THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON
THE NEXT "CREATIVE LIVING" SHOW.
IF YOU EVER HAVE COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS
OR IDEAS FOR SHOWS, YOU CAN EMAIL ME
