Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Kym Caporale
Hi Dr. Caporale, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My story has always been full of journeys and adventures, never a dull traveled road. I started my professional career working in education and taught all ages from kindergarten to university aged humans. In the search for something more, I found myself getting an additional degree in Speech-Language Pathology and again spread my wings in all areas of that profession from working in schools, hospitals, and rehab centers soon to become the owner of a rehab company. With curiosity and drive towards the integrative medical arena, I decided to further my Eastern medicine education and now have a doctorate in Eastern Medicine Studies and Research. Of course, as an educator by heart, I have built a continuing education seminars business for medical professionals. I also own Beyond the Needle, an integrative medical clinic specializing in female health. My specialty is reproductive medicine, and I consult with patients from all over the US, helping with fertility challenges.

The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.
As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading
Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
I tried it. I am so pleased with my treatments with you.
I wish I knew you before I got in such a state of extreme pain but it is getting better. Dr. Caporale, you are an angel.

Dialed in: Listening to What Your Body is Telling You
Have you switched your body’s alert system to ‘silent?’ In today’s fast-paced, hectic world, it’s all too easy to keep slugging along at the expense of physical health. No one ever got ahead by focusing on every ache and pain, you tell yourself. There’s no rest for the weary. Ignore the racing heartbeat that accompanies anxious thoughts. Pay no mind to the extra weight.
Adopt that attitude, and you’ve subdued your body’s physical alarms. When the body significantly deteriorates and the signals finally break through your mental block, the result may be disastrous. Take yourself off a health collision course and switch your body alert system to “on.”
Take note: This doesn’t mean you should become a hypochondriac. Every small sniffle does not indicate cancer any more than a sprained ankle means a lifetime of lameness. Still, there is huge benefit to investigating those twinges. Have they been lingering? Do you notice a difference in your ability to go about your day with vitality? If so, it’s time to seek medical attention.
Many of us are so out of tune with our physicality that it takes real focus to return to that mindset. Consider the following strategies as you strive to become dialed in, and expect health and happiness to follow.
- Acupuncture – There is a sense of wellbeing reported by many acupuncture patients after a session that leads to better awareness of self. Before any needles are inserted, the physician will ask you about any specific concerns in your daily life. Armed with that information, she can deduce what type of treatment plan you may need and will place the needles accordingly.
- Neutraceuticals – Are you missing a vital vitamin or mineral in your diet? An omission can make a huge difference in your health.
- Meditation – Get to know yourself at your basest level through this practice, which brings about a deep sense of relaxation. In this state, you are aware of your presence as you shut out the concerns of the outside world. You are able to simply ‘be,’ without emotion or worry. Meditation can give you a solid foundation as a person by allowing you to deal better with stress and become more in tune with your spirituality.
No matter the strategies you choose to employ, it is paramount that you listen to what your body is telling you. Too often, we keep pressing onward, afraid of showing weakness, letting that nagging health concern bury in the back of the mind. It’s not until the heart attack or debilitating illness results that we realize it was unwise to ignore. Do yourself and your loved ones a huge favor: Become more mindful of your body signals and see a health practitioner before they become huge problems.
Dont ignore your body. We have a toolbox just for you. We can give back something new and regenerating.
