Summer is the most ‘Yang’ season. Warm temperature stimulates the growth of all things in nature. For us, summer is the best time to have our body functions balanced and prepare a healthy body for the whole year. Here I list a few tips to help you to get through the summer.

  1. more fruits
    With higher temperature and more outdoor activities life style, we loss more body liquid in the summer, and the water from fruits is the most absorbable fluids to our body. The preferred juicy seasonal fruits are melons, especially water melon, Cantaloupe.
  2. more ‘cooling’ vegetables 
    Cucumber, tomato, Celery & Lettuce, mushrooms and bitter melon
  3. more ‘anti-inflammatory’ diet 
    Summer is the season with most digest problems. Add some ‘anti-inflammatory’ ingredients into your summer diet is a great way to prevent from ‘bad guts’. The helpful ingredients are: garlic, onions garlic chives and leeks.
  4. ‘muti-Vitamin’ diet
    Tomato, green pepper, plums, and pears are great source of Vitamins.
  5. keep up with water and mineral salt
    Avocado & Soy bean products (such as bean curd & miso soup) are good source of  Potassium
  6. protein rich food
    More activities mean more burning of our body protein. More fish, lean meat, eggs  and Soy products would keep your energy up and prepare a heathy body for the gruesome winter ahead

Wish you all having a glorious summer!

  • ~ Wow what a difference it has made – Ron, Shrewsbury

    "Published in 'AS News - Spring 2016'.  After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I'm unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being. In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment"
