Dr. Cynthia's Healthy Tips for Winter Season

Good morning wonderful people!

While we continue to observe social distancing I encourage each of you to stay hopeful!

Here are some tips and tricks to stay healthy 😊

  • Check out my YouTube channel I have several meditation videos on there to help create calm, boost immunity and more tips and tricks. The link is below.
  • Stay hopeful. This will pass. My videos may help. Connect with the God of your heart, talk with friends, don’t watch too much TV news and maybe write a gratitude list.
  • Stay healthy. Do your best to try to keep moving: stretch, go for walks, workout or do yoga in your home.
  • Take a multivitamin or a stress multi.
  • Keep taking herbs or other supplements. You can call the office or we can have a video chat to update any recommendations.
  • Keep a schedule. To the degree that you can go to bed the same time every day and get up the same time every day. It’s helps stabilize your circadian rhythms. This is a HUGE immunity boost.  It helps in the moment and will make transitioning back to normal life easier.
  • If you are stressed reach out to friends and family for help if you need additional care and comfort give me a call we can schedule a video consult, hypnotherapy or energy session.
  • Eat your greens! Green leafy vegetables, green fruits and vegetables help treat the liver. Liver is the first organ that gets hit with stress and green foods soothe and detox this vital organ.
  • Increase your Lung Qi!  Get some exercise or movement that raises your heart rate. Breathing harder moves energy through the lungs and helps your body release stale air. If you’ve been infirm take it slow.
  • Try to eat clean. Lean meats, healthy grains and vegetables are great nutritional staples to enjoy this time of year. Vegans and vegetarians except for animal products the same recommendations apply.
  • Limit the amount damp creating foods.  Dairy products, milk, ice cream, butter, yogurt, cheese create inflammation or phlegm in the body. Processed foods; white bread, white rice and most anything that comes in a box can create dampness in the body. Steamed or sauteed vegetables are easier to digest than raw fruits, vegies or salads during our cold, wet season. Dampness damages the Lung Qi.
  • Minimize the amount of sugar especially processed sugar you take in. Sugar is particularly harmful to the spleen and can create a lot of dampness in the body which can also make us feel sluggish and add to weight gain.
  • Enjoy all the yummy comfort food in moderation.
  • For more questions, concerns other tips and tricks please call or email the office.

Stay safe. Stay well.

Health, Happiness, Harmony! 😊
