My name is Arthur Rapkin. I graduated as an acupuncturist from Chinese Medical College in 1986. I received my doctorate in Chinese Medicine in 1995. In my years of practice I have seen over 150,000 patients.
If life is a game, I am deep into the last quarter. As of this writing I will be turning 70 years old. I continue to see new patients and treat the patients I have within my boutique health center called, Vitality Health and Wellness. It’s located in a suburb of Milwaukee called Elm Grove. I am privileged to have a full life. I wake at 6:00 am, have a cup of coffee, meditate and exercise. Four days a week I get spend my life with my amazing support staff at Vitality Health and Wellness, where we have an abundance of people coming to help facilitate positive changes in their health. Many of these people are suffering from chronic health issues that our modern Western medicine has not helped. In America, I believe that what we have is merely “treatment of disease”. Healthy, vital individuals would only reduce the revenue streams within our medical hospitals. There is no motivation or re numeration in our current system for doctors to educate their patients about food or healthy practices. There is only drugs and surgeries. These are the typical strategies that our medical doctors prescribe.
Health is like farming. It requires that we begin to plant, nourish and cultivate rituals that become “points of Influence in our daily lives. These rituals lead to creating “personal vitality”.
Simple as that. Common sense, not necessarily in common practice.
My purpose is to give others the opportunity to make positive contributions into their health account. Welcome to my blog.
