This year on December 21st plan to celebrate the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, the Winter Solstice. After the Winter Solstice, days will become longer and longer. The Traditional Chinese believe the Yang, or muscular, positive things will become stronger and stronger after this day, so it should be celebrated.
In the Winter season, our body becomes more Yang, which means that we will tend to eat lot more rare meats and less vegetable and fruits. More Yang creates inflammation, heart disease and other hot diseases. These can include High Blood Pressure, arteriosclerosis, fevers , headaches, etc. Create a balance of yin and yang by eating more cooked vegetables, altering our attitudes and controlling our emotions.
Remember the herbs that you can take to prepare yourself for celebration feasts, and take care of yourself before a belly ache and illness comes. Take the AE for inflammation and Taifu Plus with Pu-erh Tea, by doing so it makes a more cheerful digestive tract. Your digestion will be ready to process any celebration foods (and always remember that moderation is key).
And, let’s talk about celebration drinks too. As you drink, your pallet wants more salty foods. In return, that will raise our blood pressure. This causes a chance of danger as it can cause a heart attack or stroke. If you face gets too red and you have an alcohol flush or you get rosacea (caused by dilation of capillaries), your body is trying to flush out the alcohol. It’s a sign that you need to stop drinking.
Just like with your digestion and treats, taking AE_for high blood pressure and drinking Tie Guan Yin tea will help your body process the alcohol.
AE was developed to remove excess of yang and heat in the body. _It works to clear up the whole system and allow blood to nourish your skin and other organs to function properly.
And remember the health of your mind and heart. Positive things become stronger and stronger. Listen to your own body and pay attention to its needs as well as having a deeper understanding of yourself and your interactions with others. Winter is a time of gentle celebration where nutritious and warming food and family connection is promoted. Take a moment to STOP, slow down and celebrate the enjoyment of life.
