Because I practice the principles of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, I can help my patients by phone with lifestyle medicine.
The other day, I was talking to one of my lovelies and it went a little something like this:
Client: OMG ... it is so freaking HOT!🔥 I don’t have air-conditioning and I’m feeling all flushed and irritable. I can’t sleep, and when I do, I have the most bizarre dreams. I got in a fight with my husband and actually started feeling heart palpitations!
ME: Oh girl, I feel you. It’s totally understandable. In Chinese Medicine, summer is associated with the heart ... so when summer heat is too intense, we might experience heart palpitations, insomnia, restlessness, irritability and excessive sweating.
Here’s a few super simple, super sexy suggestions to cool the f*#ck down and get some relief:
❤️ Rub, tap or apply an ice cube to this point, HT 7, shen men. Swipe left to see the location at the pinky finger side of your wrist crease. This point is specific to calm our heart, soothe irritability and feel more at ease in our mind and body.
💦 At night before bed, take a bath or soak your pretty little feet in some cool water with 1 cup of Epsom salts, 1/2 cup baking soda and a few drops of peppermint or lavender essential oil. This will help to cool your system and drain some of that heat so you can get some damn sleep.
🥒 Drink extra water and eat more juicy, cooling foods like cucumber, watermelon, celery, lettuce, apples ... and drink teas like mint, dandelion and valerian.
Gently shake to activate the botanical alchemy of fresh peppermint, Earthy witch hazel + ethereal lavender with colloidal silver, essential oils, artisan hydrosols, flower essences + magical clear quartz crystals sparkling in every bottle. ✨💦 ✨ What would I do without this magical mist during these hot summer months? Gah! I'd be a hot mess without it. Grab some.
🔮 Get stoned with some cooling crystals … clear quartz, apophilite, aquamarine, blue calcite or celestite … check in with @Wild_Mountain_Crystals to see what lights your fancy.
Rock on, sister 🔮 and stay cool.
Super simple, super sexy 🧡
