Dear all, friends, clients, family,
On Tuesday 24th March 2020, with a heavy heart, I decided to close my practice for the foreseeable future.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t reach me, nor that I will stop preparing for what is going to come in our next phase of the healing practice of Chinese and alternative medicines.
Mobile: 07840 550 363
Here are some links and suggestions of what you can do at home:
Most of you are familiar with me applying moxa to you and most of you know of my love for this herb. A lot of you have a moxa stick or rice grain moxa wool, for those of you who are my neighbours, just drop me a line and I will put some through your letterbox!For those of you who do not live in beautiful West Ham, maybe you can contact a local Chinese Medicine Health practitioner to see if you can obtain either a moxa stick or loose moxa wool.
To keep yourself healthy my master Sarah Pritchard has been given permission to release her 5 element practice video. (You might have to sign up with pacific rim, sorry) For free exercises, follow the links and recommendations on my website.
A lot of you have asked me to forward the music I use when treating you by the great Yuval Ron. Choose your element:
(and if you’re not sure) use the Triple Warmer. Remember, there is no right or wrong, go with your ears and feeling.
Then there is the all-important foods we eat. I have been foraging for stinging nettles during my daily singular exercise outside, just make sure you only take the top part, so that the plant keeps feeding us and we don’t run out!!! That, and wear protective gloves until it has been cooked. My master Sarah Pritchard has given great advice on her website:
General advice for Strengthening Immunity:
- Get more sleep.
- At least 8 hours and take naps if possible during the late afternoon 5-7pm (Kidney hours).
- Kidneys are the root of our life force and are affected by fear.
- Rest at this time to nourish Kidney Qi.
Some Chinese Medicine Dietary Tips:
- Cut out or limit foods that create Dampness and Phlegm – particularly sugar, alcohol, dairy products particularly cow milk and cheese made from cow milk
- Eat warm foods rather than raw; the stomach and Spleen Yang are over taxed by too many raw foods. Eat broths, chicken soup and add medicinal mushrooms to these
- Rice porridge or congee – very nourishing for the Spleen and Lung
- Use liquorice root and ginger in tea and soups – to strengthen Spleen and help clear Damp
- Soups and stews, with root vegetables – good for Spleen
- Aromatic herbs to stimulate the Spleen – nutmeg, fennel, cinnamon, aniseed, black pepper, liquorice, cardamon, star anise
- Drink plenty of green tea, ginger tea, and other fresh herbal teas such as sage, thyme and rosemary, peppermint, basil
- Pears and pear juice – good for the Lungs
- Rice – strengthens the Spleen
- Damp clearing foods – radish, and pungent herbs i.e. onion family, garlic, leeks
- Keep diet light, fresh, warm and full of fluids
- To help the Lungs – liquorice, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, citrus peel
- The Spleen likes regularity – keep your meals regular, and when you eat avoid reading, looking at phones, listening to news, just focus on eating (like a meditation)
Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Walking Move and breathe! Move and breathe! Sing, dance and chant Send loving kindness and the vibration of peace and healing
And For those of you who want to volunteer in what ever shape or form, the NHS/generationmedics have produced this sign up form.
All my love is with all of you on this planet!
