With the Holidays around the corner, we need to focus on better eating habits, emotional eating and sleeping patterns. During this season, Taifu Plus is often used, as our Holiday Foods are mostly meats, a pound of butter in each dish and plenty of sugar that will definitely lower your Serotonin that contributes to depression and Candida over-load.
Have you ever wondered what Taifu means? Taifu means doctor. My father created the Taifu pills back in the 1950’s. He created them as a Digestive Aid understanding that something from the environment, some kind of toxin was a contributor of diseases. Perhaps more importantly for our current concerns, other than what we eat that causes problems, the bigger concern points to emotional contributions to the development of diseases, the need and the want, simply the “I can’t live without” addiction. CE has been created to balance the Liver and Spleen, the organs that reflect emotions.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we warn that irregular eating habits undermine the digestion and aggravate existing problems. Lack of nourishment can cause dizziness and fatigue called Spleen deficiency. The most common symptom is loss of appetite; some people feel dizzy, weak, get headaches and feel chest pains. Women are more likely to suffer than men.
Every year as we go through the change of season from Autumn to Winter. These winter months attribute to higher chances of flu, as our kids bring it home it continues to spread throughout the whole household. If it’s a virus, cook up the Cold and Flu regimen add a few slices of fresh ginger root and sweat it out. As I was growing up, grandma would perform Gua Sha she calls it a change of season and if our eyes are weak and pale face she’ll apply Kwan Loong oil and use a jade to scrape the illness away.
What is Gua Sha? Gua Sha is used to treat as well as prevent the common cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, and pain both acute and chronic. It is also used to detoxify the body, and fevers as the scraping brings the excess heat and toxins to the surface of the body to be released. If you have coughing, we quickly combine Gua Sha with Cupping. Cupping can heal your cough and clear your lungs.
We sleep late, eat late, eating foods that is way too rich that we shouldn’t, drink all that we shouldn’t and finally it’s the stress that we put our self and others. For this coming holiday season, my gift to you is to start a new tradition.: focus on yourself, get plenty of sleep by going to bed early, eat less and spend quality time with your family and friends. Money can’t buy health and surround yourself with lots of great moments. Take great care of yourself and you may like it. I love it.
