In this first clip I discuss several yoga breathing techniques which promote immune function, improve lung function, and reduce anxiety.
Nature’s own pharmacy, ourselves! There’s a time and a place for medicine, but let’s remember the basic maintenance principles of health. Sleep is medicine!
‘Tis the season for light, laughter and music. Chinese medicine also tells us it’s a time for rest and solitude. This can be a tricky balance and often we find ourselves frazzled and tired. Give yourself permission to cut back and just do the minimum. Of course make sure the kids have a magical Christmas, go to a few parties, and then sleep in and rest! Holidays will go better and actually be more joyous. Also come in for your seasonal acupuncture tune-up. It will feel wonderful and you will sleep better, have fewer colds and flus, and generally feel better!
