The easiest way to health, healing, self love is through prioritising nourishment. The season of Late Summer is the best time of the year to connect to this energy as it is what the Earth is prioritising as well. We have entered the season of the Earth element. The Earth is all about nourishing, nurturing and grounding. It's time to connect for those in the Northern Hemisphere.
All day people write in about their health concerns asking what they can do to feel better in mind, body, and spirit. The easiest way is on your plate. Do you eat foods which nourish your body to promote energy and healing both mental and physical? Or do you eat in ways that use up your Qi (vital energy) and further your symptoms? This can resemble anything from skipping meals (especially breakfast), only eating the same thing, obsessing over your food, and constantly eating processed foods. The Earth, which is correlated to our Spleen and Stomach, likes to know it will be regularly fed with the abundance it provides through the variety of seasonal foods.
To have a healthy Earth is to be solidly anchored in your core, your gut. What you feed yourself is the most important way to take control of your overall well-being.
I do not get to see all comments hence why I do not respond as I am too busy with patients and on my days off, I need to raise my vibrations and work on my Spirituality. Also my social media posts are now being typed and put up by my assistants. My mobile phone has also been hijacked for which I am relieved. But the other day someone wanted to know what my typical days food intake consists of, so here goes. Mondays and Thursdays are fasting days from sunrise to sunset to detoxify except when on my period which my natural detoxification is I look forward to, I drink warm water throughout the day. Other days, I tend to have baked sweet potatoes sprinkled with cinnamon with ginger powder tea. The slow release of glucose from the sweet potato leaves me full until lunchtime that I cannot even drink water. Lunch tends to be a homemade miso soup with chopped fungi (wood ear mushroom) and spring onion. Dinner tends to be congee with different toppings each night from the Book of Jook by Bob Flaws. I will have bone broth on the side as my drink. I obviously also have my various mushrooms throughout the day along with herbal teas, 2 litres of warm water.
