In Chinese Medicine we place great emphasis on the connection of the physical and the emotional πŸ’•

New on the blog I discuss that connection and go in to detail about the way emotions can create physical symptoms.

Greens, greens, greens! πŸ’šπŸ₯¦πŸ’šπŸ₯’πŸ’š
Nothing like a plate full of #greenveggies to make you feel #vibrant and #healthy πŸ₯¦
I’ve got a killer mix of broccoli, zucchini, asparagus and spinach with garlic, spring onion and finished with tamari, sriracha, sesame seeds and a dash of sesame oil on a bed of rocket. It’s #fridaylevel good πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‹
Many of these ingredients are high in #anticancer compounds, #antioxidants #vitamins #minerals and #fibre 😍
And they are SO PRETTY! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Beautiful yellow #lemons πŸ‹ catching the morning #sunshine ! β˜€οΈ
Lemons contain that amazing #vitaminc which is important for #skinhealth and the #immunesystem AND they also contain potent #anticancer molecules such as #polyphenols and #terpenes which not only inhibit cancer growth but also enhance the anti-cancer actions of other foods πŸ‘ŠπŸ»βœŠπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻
I can’t start the day without hot water and lemon, it’s part of my morning #ritual πŸ’›πŸ‹πŸ’›πŸ‹

Sweet, nourishing #pumpkin πŸ˜‹
The beautiful #orange colour gives us clues as to its awesome #healthbenefits 🧑
It is chock full of beta carotene, which converts to #vitaminA in the body, important for skin and immune health. 
From a Chinese Medicine perspective, this sweet comfort food #nourishes the #spleenqi which is part of our #digestivesystem

Ruby red #strawberries πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
These guys are packed full of anti oxidants and anti cancer compounds, and in Chinese medicine red foods are thought to nourish the heart ❀️ and support emotional wellbeing ☺️
As the weather gets warmer I’m looking forward to seeing more of these!

Keep an eye out as I’ll be doing a series of posts on foods and their therapeutic actions over the next week! πŸ“πŸŠπŸ‹πŸ₯’πŸ‡ Why? Because I LOVE food!!

Green is the colour of Spring in Chinese Medicine. It is characterised by exuberant growth and expansion 🌱

We can make the most of this energy by challenging ourselves to grow and change, physically and mentally πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻 I’m loving seeing this everywhere in nature at the moment, and loving the way the vivid greens contrast with the heavy grey sky πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸŒΏβ˜οΈ

Blossom blooming near the clinic entrance reminding us Spring is oh-so-close 🌷

The cold, deep, introspective Yin of Winter is drawing to a close. The Spring energy encourages us to move and expand, and allow our energy to bloom πŸŒΈπŸŒ·πŸ’
