How to keep your body heat under control this Christmas.
This was shared with me by a client’s husband this week who was experience chronic sciatic pain which I have managed to get under control.
He said and I quote,
“My wife and I were out shopping, we arrived home pleased with our efforts within a short timer my wife asked if we could turn the heating down”. The heating was not on she was in a raging heat, felt drained, emotionally low and soaked right through to the point she needed a shower and changed her cloths.”
He commented how awful it must be to contend with.
That got me Janie, thinking what do I know that may help you get an anchor of raging heat this festive period.
Well as a 51-year-old woman and a health practitioner I have learned over the years that my body resonates with eastern philosophy and treatments such as acupuncture and ancient cupping etc. The one ingredient which rages heat is refined sugar found in sweets, cakes and biscuits and all the wonderful treats at this festive time including the booze.
Here are two tips that I know worked for me.
1. Change from drinking cold water to room temperature water or even mildly warm boiled water. Why, because heat dissipates heat. Cold water will not cool you down.
2. Time out and sit for a while with your feet in a bowl of hot water- a foot spa ( without scolding your feet ). The water needs to be about 3 inches up from your ankle bone. After about 5 minutes massage the inside of your shins along the meridian lines with a little oil and relax. Listen to a beautiful piece of music to help you unwind.
When you are ready dry your feet and resume your day.
Try these for a few weeks and see how you feel. They work for me and just might help you.
Training my wife until Alzheimer’s disease really took hold of her, really helped her and supported me. Now I am 87 and 15 minutes gentle and appropriate exercise before my massage has helped me feel better. Has lifted my spirits and got the juices flowing. My back is better too now you have showed me what exercise to do at home to open up the joint.
I hit someone and in the moment hurt my shoulder. First appointment sorted even though I have exercises to do and a follow up appointment, Thanks for always finding a way to fit me in with my crazy work schedule.
Never once have you made me feel I couldn’t be the best and never once have you given up on me and with constant encouragement.
Reg…. a wonderful series of useful information on memory loss. Jane has helped me understand what we need to be aware of, cope with and plan for as we enter old age. The best part of these books are that they fit in your pocket for easy reference, but, more importantly, the writing is big enough that I can see it.
At the time I was not in a very good place you helped me become a fighter, teaching me to zone out of what was going on around me and focus. I still do that today when I am faced with negativity. That day I performed my best a faultless routine a day and performance I shall never forget. The icing on the cake was winning and that I shall thank you forever.
For anyone going through the dramatic effect of dealing with not only the person who has this illness, but also the authorities, this series of books will be such a support for you.
Your guidance and support has helped me understand that my sister and I are doing the right things for our Mum.
An excellent training session and no problem with my back- I can’t believe it! Thank you.
I am 88 years old, tried to move the sofa in my flat and hurt myself, thanks for gently manipulating me and putting me back together
When I fell and hurt myself at work, you took care of me and I realised just how much you know about the body. I thought I had a problem with my knee which I found out later with you that the problem stemmed from by back- You are better than my doctor.
