For thousands of years Asian philosophy has found that good health is achieved when all the elements, wood, fire, earth, metal and water are in harmony and this is the underlying structure of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Herbal Remedies.
Following the elements is a great way to keep healthy and balanced throughout the various seasons. Winter is the element of water, which is the time of year that supports our Kidney and Bladder. It is also a time for inward reflection and for rest. To help keep healthy during these winter months we can do a variety of things and one of them could be adding Apple Cider Vinegar to your daily routine. This will aid the detoxification of the body allowing the Kidney, Bladder and Liver to be supported.
Apple Cider Vinegar contains loads of properties that are essential for a healthy metabolism, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, Pectin, Acetic Acid and Potassium to name just a few. According to the Australian’s National College of Traditional Medicine, Apple Cider Vinegar has many healing powers.
One of the reasons Apple Cider Vinegar is so effective is because it helps the body become more alkaline rather than acidic and this aids in detoxifying the accumulation.
Apple Cider Vinegar should be diluted as taken straight may damage tooth enamel or burn the mouth and throat. Two tablespoons in a glass of warm water first thing in the morning is a great way to keep your body in balance during the following months and throughout the year.
Also, I was speaking to a client of mine this morning she said that a great way to remove chemicals off fruit and vegetables is to soak them in water and a little Apple Cider Vinegar for an hour.
If you are doing all this and still feel out of balance perhaps it’s time to visit me in clinic. My name is Sheila Dickson and I available on Wednesdays and Thursdays offering Jin Shin Jyutsu. Jin Shin Jyutsu works on the meridians and acupuncture pressures on the body, it is a gentle, relaxing one hour session using fingertip pressure over clothing creating balance and harmony.
