Summertime is Fun time!

-Enjoy some Healthy Tips...

Summer offers extra long days and beautiful summer nights! It is the best time of year for barbeque, bathing suits and a day at the beach!

Enjoy it but remember to keep plenty of clear fluids in your body, be wary of dehyrdating and get plenty of rest.


From a Chinese Medicine perspective, the organ most affected by the summer is the Heart. Many people don't know that the Heart houses the mind. It is most common for people to lose their focus and concentration in the summer. If you find yourself thinking too much, unable to focus, or having negative thoughts than simply drop down into the heart center of your body to create an energetic shift in your mind.


Other sypmptoms affected by the energetic aspect of the Heart is sleeping imbalance or insomnia, anxiety and fatigue. If you already have physical heart issues, it will be wise to stay out of the midday heat as much as possible. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated so your body has an easier time with overall circulation. Stay away from high sugar drinks or try an all natural herbal iced tea.


Staying healthy this summer might involve getting acupuncture to balance your energy and boost your Heart Qi. The best point for an overall boost of Qi is located on your calf, roughly four fingers below the kneecap and one finger width to the outside of the shinbone. Ancient text suggest that all disease can be treated by this point as it is an excellent point to strengthen the body and fight fatigue.


Another option for a healthy summer is taking the time to do slow, deep breathing. Allowing your breath to come down into the belly area of your body. This will help with anxiety and insomnia, two of the most common symptoms related to heart imbalance.
