Easter 2013 Newsletter

Easter Holidays are upon us!


The weather is slowly starting to change and daylight saving is soon coming to an end (Sunday, April 7th). Soon we will notice an increase in wind and cold temperatures.

For this reason the Lung organ must be protected in order to prevent the invasion of wind and cold leading to respiratory concerns!. Therefore it’s important for us to boost our Wei Qi (Defensive Qi), as well as protect ourselves from the wind and cold.

Ways to boost the Wei Qi include..

1. Ensuring Adequate Sleep (Over 8 hours where possible) 

2. A diet rich in Green Leafy Vegetables such as Spinach, Kale, Spirulina and Broccoli.
3. Moderate Exercise 

4. Letting go of Negative Emotions
5. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

Avoidance of raw and cold foods which can create dampness and affect our bodies ability to combat illness is also recommended.

During Autumn try and avoid foods high in dairy such as cheese, milk and cream. Adding mild pungent foods such as garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish and mustard are beneficial to the lungs.
