Spring Solstice: Nourishing your Body

Spring is all about nourishing and supporting the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, spring is associated with liver and gallbladder, which not only store and purify the blood but also govern muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
Supportive Tips:
Topical castor oil packs (from January edition) – for circulation and lymphatic support.
Eat more – beets, garlic/onions/leeks/shallots, broccoli/cauliflower/Brussel sprouts/cabbage, turmeric, rosemary, ginger, apple, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar
Try yoga, pilates, tai qi or meditation. Combining breath work with movement will improve oxygenation, help to release unwanted emotions, and improve blood flow to nourish the tendons, muscles and joints.

Book Review: Remember to Live:

Embracing the Second Half of Life
Remember to Live discusses the importance of living your life now, and “remembering to live” by keeping your priorities clearly before you and using your time, talent, energy, and material resources accordingly. When we face the fact that life is not limitless, it clarifies our vision and intention. We stop putting things off for “someday.” None of us can escape life experiences like aging, illness, loss, or death. Do we deal with those reminders with fear and trepidation or with a desire to learn the lessons they have to teach and to continue growing through our encounters with them?
