Winter health mistakes

         inserted image

  1. Drinking icy cold water from the fridge or at a restaurant or party; or eating a raw salad. The coldness in the food and drink can steal your warm energy from your stomach, negatively affecting your digestion and your body’s immune system.
  2. Showering too often. It can open your body’s pores and expose your skin to cold air, which can lose energy and make you feel weak; the result is that it’s easy to catch cold.
  3. Wearing lower-cut tops; the cold air can attack you through your uncovered shoulder and neck. This can cause coughing, running nose, sore throat and lung inflammation.
  4. Overactive sex life; since sexual energy comes from the kidneys, you can weaken them.


How to protect your kidney

  1. Do not eat protein food for dinner - feeling light in the stomach area helps you to have a good sleep.
  2. Go bed before 11pm to restore your energy.
  3. Reduce sex life and the frequency of your showers.
  4. Keep your feet and neck warm.

High Blood Pressure – Patient had been on medication for the last 10 years and now he has free from medication

gramem2

Graeme is a 59 year old businessman. Who runs a medium size company and has lots of stress from work. He has a lot of drive but lacks energy. Graeme has a high blood pressure and has been taking medication for the last 10 years.

In August 2013 Graeme started Chinerchi Therapy. After about 12 treatments he has blood pressure of 140/80 down from 160 / 100. Graeme has now been free form the medication and sleeping better, eating healthier & feeling happier with good energy for work. Graeme does not have to get up during the night which gives him a better continuous sleep, ready for the next working day making him feel more relaxed and less stressed.

 

Review of the treatments

 High blood pressure patients don’t have to take medication for life.

If you look Graeme’s photos before and after to compare, you will notice that before treatment the face is deep red in colour.   This indicates a lack of oxygen in the blood and high levels of toxicity. The saggy chin indicates water retention and low energy.

 The wrinkles are caused by a lack of collagen in the dermis which lies directly under the skin.  This indicates that the body is not absorbing nutrients.

The photos taken after the series of treatments show that the face shape has lifted, the skin has become tight , the colour is vibrant, the saggy chin and wrinkles have disappeared.  These results have been achieved because the blood has an increased capacity to carry oxygen around the body.  And in turn, all the organs of the body are able to function better, allowing Graeme to feel more energetic and healthier.

High blood pressure is a symptom of your blood being too thick, or the blood vessels being too narrow. If we don’t treat it, the blood vessels could become blocked or burst causing a stroke or heart attack.  In western medicine, to manage high blood pressure, medication is prescribed for the remainder of the person’s life.

Chinerchi therapy works on the heart and liver energy, making sure the body can detox the blood and allow the circulation to flow better.  This makes the blood become clean and lighter, causing the pressure to go down. Medication becomes un- necessary.

The secret is to strengthen the internal organs. Your body can clean its own blood making the healing process simple.

How to treat complicated health problems? Chinese face map reading is a key.

face(copy)

How to treat complicated health problems? Every natural therapist understands the principle of holistic healing. Why can only a few of them can deliver the effective results? The secret is to know where the starting point is.  Recognize what the key issues are, and   there relation to further health issues.

For example, Judy came for open injury in the foot, the wound had not closed for a month; her high blood pressure was the contributing cause.

 

 A good healer need have two skills:

One: to recognize the connection between the symptoms and internal cause – in Judy‘s case is the high blood pressure ned to be treat first.

Two: Correct treatment techniques to deliver healing. Reduce water retention through the whole body, and build up blood flow.

Best treatment for the season - Introduction to Tibetan Fire Dragon therapy
 

ImageProxy(copy)ImageProxy2(copy)

Fire applied to the front: effective for Fire applied to the front: effective for colds

colds with stomach issues with chronic back pain

This therapy is from Tibet and came to China around the time of the Tang dynasty about 1500 years ago.

All health issues are partly the result of poor blood circulation. Any form of healing therapy need to improve the patient's blood flow. Tibetan Fire Dragon therapy is most effective for this. Especially useful in the winter season.

If a patient has a bad flu the cold energy is centred in the chest and stomach. Fire applied to the front of the body can remove the cold almost instantly.

If patients have chronic back, leg or arm pain the blood flow is poor - this leads to inflammation where body cells can't re-build the tissues.

Fire therapy helps the blood supply, thus the body can reduce the inflammations and heal itself.

Fire and cupping is the best combination of energizing and detoxing the body at the same time.

Do you have a cold? Cough? Or back pain?

Ring us for health analysis. We can find the best natural healing solution for you.

 

1:  Important acupuncture points for winter

breast

Tanzhong-Ren17
Center Point between breasts
1: Ren 17 is a crossing point for the Spleen, Kidney, Small Intestine, and San Jiao channels.
2: Ren 17 is known as the “Sea of Qi.”
When you are tired or getting a cold, this point easily gets blocked. This will affect your ability to absorb oxygen and also diminish your energy level
When we do the detox cupping treatments at this are ,often we can sucking out a lot of water! becuase the toxines was buit up theye!

Picture of cupping ren17 with water


You need to massage this area often, even on a daily basis. Also, keeping it warm can be incredibly effective to help the energy flow.


2:  Watch your colon health in winter

colon

Salads and fruit are healthy food - but if your bowel movements are more than 3 times a day this indicates you are not absorbing the nutrition and your colon is not able to process the food. Not only is the food you have eaten wasted but it is also draining energy from your body.
What can you eat?

Shocking truth about NZ health - asthma and colon cancer connection

NZ has the purest air on the planet but we have the second highest asthma rate in the world. NZ has the best quality of meat, yet we have highest rate of women's colon cancer in the world. Why? Is there any connection between these two?

Asthma is the entire lung system getting water retention and becoming swollen, the air can't get through.

colen

Colon cancer is the cancer cells madly growing to take over in your colon.

colen2

In Chinese medicine :The lung and colon are pair of a twin energy network. For any patient with lung issues I always treat colon and conversely, anyone having colon issues always needs to work on the lungs.

Water retention weakens blood circulation. The best way to improve circulation is to keep warm at chest and feet. As blood flow increases the water retention will be go down.

 

NZ has a strange culture and belief in that wearing less clothing is fashionable. I often see patients heavily coughing yet still wearing low cut tops, shorts and bare feet

women

Cancer only grows within polluted environment and where there is lack of blood flow. The heart is the only organ that does not get cancer. Never drink anything cold from the fridge but eat warm food and treat irritated bowel issues as early as possible.

There is a very common belief that meat and salad are healthy foods. If you have any bowel issues then both of these foods are not right for you. If your bowl motion is loose this indicates your abdominal area is cold and is not able to absorb food. Don't eat meat and salad.

When you have a loose bowel, don't eat salad.

inserted image

Lately I had a female patient in her 50s who was very health conscious. Though active and eat healthy she had chronic diarrhoea for a year. The bowl motion could go 7-8 times a day.

My first question: what do you eat yesterday? "Salad".

Salad is a nutritious food but is not suitable for diarrhoea patients.

No salad. Why?

When your bowl is loose it indicates your stomach being cold having no energy to process food. If the food goes in through your month and straight out from your colon, your food intake is wasted and drains energy from your body.

You need to eat warm and easy to digest food like porridge.

Chronic dry cough

inserted image

Last week a lady in her 40s had a severe dry cough for two months. She has been to the doctor a few times who prescribed medication which didn't work then suggested another which did not work either. This issue affected her life badly.

After one session of Chinerchi therapy she is 80% better.

If you suffer from a chronic dry cough which is not related to a virus or cold, that could indicate lower energy in liver. When the liver is not functioning well, toxins build up, the blood becomes hot and thick can impact your lungs. This can lead to a dry cough.

Chinerchi therapy can be one of your best answers.

If you try to help yourself.

1, no meat or protein food at dinner. This can help you to reduce heat in your body.

inserted image

2, go to bed early at 10pm. Deep and restful sleep can restore your liver energy.

inserted image

Food can be Poisonous

What are we doing during the holiday season? Praying, Eating, having fun and loving.

Right amount of good food can give you energy, but over-eating, can be poisonous.

1,Do not over eat protein food because unbroken down protein is toxic to your blood.

inserted image

2, When you have a bowel motion which is loose like porridge, it indicates your abodomin has no energy to absorb the nutrients; you need to stop eating salad, because salad is cold food and your body has no energy to process it.

inserted image

3, If after eating cake, you feel sleepy, it indicates that your body is not able to break down sugar, that is an early sign of diabetes.

In Chinese medicine spring is for growth. Our liver organ has the power to renew itself. Science has discovered the liver can renew itself every 5 month. When surgeons remove 70% of a liver from a patient it has been found that their liver can grow back 100% in two months. The liver is known for its amazing capacity to repair and re-grow itself thanks to its rich blood supply. If you have liver issues spring is a best time to treat.
How to heal your own liver?
In Chinese medicine liver emotional energy is serenity and flexibility. To give and receive hugs is one of the most powerful recipes to heal your own liver. If you have liver health issues or you feel restless and emotionally stiff that could indicate your liver is hungry for a hug and you are lacking emotional connection with yourself and others. You are in need of some free expression of your emotions. Can you imagine through the simple exercise of hugging you can grow your liver back or you can heal your liver!

I am Inspired by Stephen Hawking, I want to learn more about universal energy how it relates to health. I found this golden ratio number I am sure it will amaze you.

The Golden Section is also known as the Golden Mean, Golden Ratio and Divine Proportion. It is a ratio or proportion defined by the number Phi (= 1.618033988749895… )

While the proportion known has always existed in mathematics and in the physical universe, It appears that the Egyptians may have used both pi and phi in the design of the Great Pyramids. The Greeks based the design of the Parthenon on this proportion.

The interesting part is in the Human body we have the Golden Ratio points:

Third eye.

Throat

Tummy button.

These points are crucially important for your life you need to take care of them.

Golden ration in healthy life style

1 Age . If you live to 100 years of age. . Proportion 0.618 = 62 is the age your health will go down.

38 is your life peak time

2 Sleep time: night is 12 hours Proportion 0.618 is 7.5 hours .this good time for you to rest.

3 Body temperature is 37 . Proportion 0.618 is 23 . This the best temperature for human health

Two years ago in a acupuncturist's  social party I have meet a acupuncturist in his 40s with his 3 children  aged between  2-8 and his young wife in her 30s is pregnant  again sat next to me.. After have some conversation. I realise he is 55 years old. I ask him: what is the secret to keep you looks 15 years younger?

Take care of your kidneys in the winter season

24th May

In Chinese philosophy human is part of nature and in ancient Chinese medicine different seasons will effect to different organs. Winter is kidney season. Because this is the coldest season of the year, all creatures on earth will restore energy for re-growth in spring. The humans should do the same.

 

Tip 1:To restore energy here is three suggestions

1.Reduce the time of shower to avoid getting cold or tired

2.Reduce the frequency of sex life to save energy.

3.Reduce outdoor exercise to avoid getting cold.

 

Tip2:Keep your head cool and keep your feet warm.

Your brain function is related to kidney energy. For the best performance it needs to be kept cool. Use cold water to wash your face as this can build up your immune system and stimulate blood flow.

Use hot water to have a foot bath. This is a traditional Chinese way to maintain kidney energy in winter.

The feet are farthest body part from the heart; the most vulnerable to invasion of cold, keeping the feet warm is very important. The kidney's meridians run from the bottom of your feet, through your legs to your back. When you have sore feet, which indicates that your kidney energy is blocked or running on negative.

When your feet are exposure to the cold weather, that can affect your internal organs, cause the epigastria pain, diarrhea, irregular menstruation and pain, impotence, lower back pain and other illnesses. Keep your feet warm and you will have countless health benefit.

Soak your feet at warm water- bestto soak formorethan20 minutes until you feel little sweaty.

What is the difference from have a shower?

If you are tired a shower can make you more tired and you can get a cold.

A Foot bath can make you relax and stay warm.

Help you have a deep sleep.

 

Tip3. Ginger and red date drink

Ginger and red date tea

Your neck and chest is most important traffic station between brain, heart, and lungs. Keeping this area warm means keeping a good blood flow in these organs.

Autumn weather changes to colder temperatures and many people, especially ladies still enjoy wearing low cut tops. When your neck and chest contact cold air, that can do damage to your health: flu, asthma, headache, Bronchitis and heart problems can attack you. Often I see patient's arrive in clinic with a bad cold or asthma, still wearing very thin clothing and low cut tops.

Year of Dragon and your health tips

20 Jan 2012

Chinese New Year 2012 at 23-Jan Monday this is the year of the Dragon. I want to share the meaning of Dragon in Chinese culture and this year of energy relating to your health.

 

The Chinese Dragon is a legendary animal. It is the symbol of the Emperor in Chinese history. Also the Celestial Chinese Dragon is comparable as the symbol of the Chinese race itself. Chinese around the world, proudly proclaim themselves (Descendents of the Dragon).

The Dragon symbolizes power and excellence, valiancy and boldness, heroism and perseverance, nobility and divinity. A dragon overcomes obstacles until success is his. He is energetic, decisive, optimistic, intelligent and ambitious.

 

It is regarded as the Supreme Being amongst all creatures. It has the ability to live in the seas, fly up to the heavens and coil up in the land in the form of mountains. Being the divine mythical animal, the Dragon can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent and bestow safety to all that hold his emblem. The Chinese Dragon is looked upon as the ultimate symbol of Good Fortune.

 

From a Chinese Feng Shui point of view 2012 also is a strong water year. That could indicate that there will be more raining days in the water year. From healthcare point of view: when the weather become too wet, the people who have water retention problems, their health condition could become worst. Because the human is part of nature. Our body can be influenced by nature.

Too wet in summer, easy to have digestive problems, in autumn it can cause more lung and breathing problems, in winter more severe arthritis and sore back.

 

What can you do to improve and protect your health?

Eat more garlic at summer to avoid food poisoning for stomach health.  Eat more ginger and chilli for improve blood circulation. To keep warm in general. More exercise, more laughter is always good. That can generate more fire energy in your heart to fight against too much water which can damage kidneys.

 

New Zealand's population today is 4,435,452.  Auckland is the most ethnically diverse region in New Zealand with 56.5 percent identifying as Europeans, 18.9 percent as Asian, 11.1 per cent as MAORI and 14.4 percent as other Pacific Islanders.

 

If you live in Auckland 1 in 5 people you meet may be involved in celebrating Chinese New Year. I wish the spirit of the Dragon year will empower all of us. We are all on the journey to live with good health and prosperity.

 

Eating to improve your energy .Treat yourself eat light and drink less.

20 Dec 2011

Christmas is a festival. We are celebrating through eating. Feast often associate eating and drinking a lot. Do you realize that over eating can cause digestion problems and also after eating a big meal you can get tired?

 

I did some research at Google the total world population is of all living humans on the planet earth is estimated to 6.982 billion

925 million hungry people in 2010.

 

Digestive Problem affects 30% of Population in developing countries.

In today's world, there is more population with digestive problems than population with hunger.

 

What causes digestion problems?

Stress, bad quality of food and over eating.

 

What can you do when you see lots of food in front of you?

Remember your body is a soft gentle living machine having limitations Eating is to celebrate also for healing. You need to be conscious: After eating these foods can I become more energetic, beautiful, sexy and enable you to relax having good sleep or the opposite?

You hold the power to protect your digestive system, Love yourself and be happy.

 

spring season health tips-Keep warm.

11 Nov 2011

Do not be in a hurry to take off winter clothes; the spring season is always windy.  That cold wind can cool down and slow the blood circulation and the inner organs will be lacking in blood supply.  The results in a loss of energy and strength and then it could be very easy to catch a cold which can then develop into to asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia.
