    Winter From the Perspective of Chinese Medicine

    emointhekitchen From the Chinese Tradition, which deals with Yin and Yang and Five Elements, we learn that the winter period is connected with the water element. In nature, we can observe how the space energy drops down, the leaves of the trees fell, tree sap withdrew to the roots. Days are cold and nights long. People should reduce their activity and relax. Nowadays, artificial lighting significantly shortens long winter evenings. Yet we should sleep, relax and meditate even more and spend more time in the circle of our loved ones.

    WordPress Feng Shui

    emointhekitchen The blog is just like a magazine or a book about content, but the blogger usually has to (at least initially) handle all editorial work and technical matters alone. Therefore, it can be very difficult to devote enough energy to quality content that is really what you care about. The same as at home or in the kitchen; if you have a lot of things you do not use, you are always looking for something and you have no peace in mind for what you really want to do. You get tired and your energy is scattering. If you cook with love for your loved ones in a pleasant…

    The Ritual of Dao – Cosmetics Review

    emointhekitchen Aromatherapy from a TCM standpoint is, to some degree, unexplored territory. Unlike in Chinese herbology, where there is a general consensus on herbs properties and the traditional formulas, the use of essential oils is wide open. When I started to study Traditional Chinese Medicine, it was surprising to me that there are just a few relevant sources on this topic out there.

I’m trying to follow all the principles of TCM, Yin Yang and Five elements theory. However, I am still in the process of…

However, let’s think of common sense. None of the other mammals except us normally consume milk after the end of the lactation period. Enzymes that help to digest breast milk gradually disappear from the body with age. Humans, though, have developed a genetic exception to that rule a few millennia ago. Lactase persistence gene A gene called “lactase persistence gene” which has evolved among people in Europe and Saharan Africa makes some of us able to keep making the…
