I was going through my magazines and found some great sounding recipes. Particularly the roasted beet and chicken filled endive spears! For all my "liver" patients, this one is worth trying! Enjoy!! :)
Happy Thanksgiving! Most of us are going to indulge and eat all the yummy foods that we can physically stand. I know that I am. I will admit it. I love turkey day and I plan on thoroughly enjoying it. I know that I will pay the price after wards, but I also know a few tricks to help ease that over eating discomfort.
You have all heard about relaxing exercises like yoga, tai chi, qigong, or meditation. You might not be too familiar with it, but incorporating it into your life has profound effects.
More and more stars are talking about their experiences with Chinese medicine and their own fertility challenges. In this article, Mariah Carey is said to have had "once a day acupuncture". Many women do not have the time or the money for once a day acupuncture, but treatments can be supplemented by herbs with very effective results. Although once a day acupuncture may not seem very realistic, Mariah's fertility challenges can still be related to by women who are experiencing the same thing.
Last week I talked about adrenal fatigue and how it can affect you. This week I want to reiterate that taking care of yourself is so important! I know it is a busy time of year, but find the time to take care of yourself. Find some time to relax and enjoy it! You don't want to burn yourself out, get sick, go through the holidays and then start a new year feeling crummy.
Its official, its nearing the end of the year. With that comes traveling, many get togethers, cooking and over eating, trying to wrap things up and juggling work and family. Stress is an understatement! For many of us who already have one million things to do, the end of the year just means more stress. If we don't take a break and we continue with the go, go, go lifestyle, we can end up paying the price. Our body aches, we are fatigued and we just can't seem to recoup. It is important to be able to take a break because if we don't, we risk “adrenal fatigue”. If you haven't heard of this condition, you will. Its becoming more and more of an issue with our high stress lifestyle.
