Chinese Tips: 5 Tips for Winter Without Getting Sick

The automnal period is well underway. And the arrival of the little evils that go with it too. According to traditional Chinese medicine, this is the perfect time to team up against the little winter bobos. Preventing rather than curing is the leitmotif of traditional Chinese Medicine. 

Preparing hot dishes

As our elders often recommend, be sure to eat hot during this time, at every meal. Choose slow-cooked dishes, stews or baked dishes. Slow cooking brings more Chi inside the deep layers. Pull the good old pot out of the fire. Once a week. Add a small ginseng root, two tablespoons of Goji berries, a little ginger, and a star anise. Moderate amounts of cereals and legumes, dates, grapes, pears, potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, melons, liquorice, honey, cinnamon and anise will provide the necessary fuel for the spleen, a key element in this season. Avoid sugar overload and don't forget the tisane at the end of the meal.
Gargle in case of sore throat

Sore throats? Use tannin plants, gargle. Make this composition yourself: sour, brambles and cynorrhodon in tisane. As for toddlers you can make them a drink that they can swallow: purple flowers, poppy, Roman chamomile (anti-inflammatory, softening and calming), elderflowers (febrifuge), thyme (anti-infective and expectorant) and tussilage. Add a little honey. Drink the beverage three cups a day for four days.

Adapting to your body's needs
