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!

What Our Patients Say

  • ~ Mrs Gwilt

    "A number of years ago I developed a severe back pain due to a slight curve of the spine which the Xray had shown. The doctor prescribed pain killers & a set of exercises for me to do. A friend who at the time was having acupuncture for her shoulder advised me to consult Dr. Daian to see what she could do for me, which I did. She explained that it would never be healed but she could help. At the time most weeks I was in pain. Not only that but I found it difficult to sleep. Now (after treatment) rarely does the pain wake me. I am not without pain but it is under control of which I am highly grateful."
