Of all the ways we are experiencing this pandemic, one possibility is finding ourselves with a new or strengthened resolve to prioritise our wellness - physically, emotionally and mentally.

An understanding of the interconnectedness of our bodies, minds and spirits, and of the tools we have to cultivate health and prevent or mitigate illness, is at the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine and of our Healing Nutrition curriculum at AHN.

For some of us, this is the first time we have considered the impact upon our health of our habitual food choices. Now is just the beginning 🌱 #AcademyHealingNutrition #longevitydiet #TCM #ayurveda

Nature’s perpetual cycles demonstrate that seasons of contraction give rise to those of expansion, that night gives way to day, that the seeming desolation of winter transforms into the opportunity for re-creation in the spring.

We can embody this understanding as we dream up what we want to grow in this new world to come, what seeds of change we wish to plant, to use a familiar phrase. How do we want to be in relationship to each other, going forwards? Can we re-imagine systems that genuinely prioritize the well-being and dignity of all of us, and acknowledge our interconnectedness and responsibilities towards each other, and the earth?

What latent, creative solutions and powers are within us, awaiting awakening? 🧚🏻‍♂️🧘‍♀️🌱 #AcademyHealingNutrition #LongevityDiet #TCM #Ayurveda

Tending to the Liver: we are cleansing our physical and emotional selves.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the smooth flow of energy, or Qi, that our creative force depends upon, is regulated by our liver. The liver also has an affinity, in TCM, with the green, upward, and outward movement of a sprout or sapling. Spring, therefore, is the time of year where we focus on refreshing the health of this vital organ system.

Physically, be gentle to your Liver now, consider it like a tender green shoot that must be protected. It is wise to avoid the stressors of fried, or overly rich or spicy foods, to minimize stimulants like caffeine and alcohol - to ease what the Liver must process.

Instead, spring greens - dandelion, watercress, chard, lettuces, sprouts, and arugula - will help purify the Liver-Gallbladder. Radishes reduce phlegm and improve circulation; leeks and green onions cleanse the blood. It is a bit too soon for full-on cleansing or fasting in unstable weather and circumstances. However, it is acceptable to start incorporating some of these fresh, raw foods, if available to you, especially in the same meal as a bowl of soothing miso soup.

Finally, it is the taste of sour foods that nourishes the Liver-Gallbladder system. Lemon juice or apple cider vinegar with warm water in the morning is especially useful for keeping things moving. 🧚🏻‍♂️🧘‍♀️🌱 #AcademyHealingNutrition #longevitydiet #TCM #ayurveda
