Menopause management

Reduce your body heat

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.
