Cooling Foods during Summer

Cooling Foods during Summer

Why you should eat Cooling Foods during SummerCooling Foods

by Alice Louey

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we recognise that different conditions and body types require different treatment methods. The ultimate end goal of Chinese medicine and acupuncture sessions are to bring you back into a balanced healthy state of well-being. The choice of foods we eat is one easy way that we can take care of ourselves and have a beneficial impact on our health. We are lucky here in Melbourne to have such a variety of good quality foods available to us all year round.

You may have noticed that your acupuncturist has recommended that you eat more cooling foods.  What does this mean? Cooling and warming foods are one way that Chinese medicine categorises the healing properties of foods. Cooling foods are great way to cool the body if you are suffering from any TCM heat conditions.  These foods have cooling and moistening properties to help counteract the drying and warming effect of having too much internal heat. 

Cooling foods may be part of the treatment plan devised specifically for you to help reduce or alleviate any heat symptoms you’re suffering from. Some symptoms you may experience if you have too much internal heat in your system include: thirst, feeling hot, red eyes, headaches, dark yellow urine, constipation, day or night sweating, skin rashes (heat rash, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis) or being short-tempered.

Cooling foods that are in season during the warmer months of the year include foods like cucumbers, watermelon, lettuce, apricots, strawberries, watercress, nashi pears and asparagus.

Other cooling foods that are available all year long: are leafy green vegetables (bok choi, choy sum, chinese broccoli, spinach), mung bean sprouts, celery, apples, pears, kiwi fruit; peppermint tea, chrysanthemum tea, cucumbers, bamboo shoots, tofu, eggplant, mushrooms, lemons, limes, grapefruit, banana and avocado.

Cooling foods that are great for your hot skin: cucumber, pears, nashi pears, celery, watermelon, kiwi fruit, watercress and mung bean sprouts.

Chinese medicine home remedies for your hot skin: thinly peeled slices of cucumber laid directly over the hot skin (use a vegetable peeler to get really long, thin strips of cucumber that can cover a larger area of skin) and rubbing watermelon peel (the white part) over the affected skin area

Cooling foods that are great for your red eyes: peppermint tea, chrysanthemum flower tea, water that has been infused with lemons and/or cucumber;

Chinese Medicine Home remedies for your red eyes: don’t waste your peppermint teabags, you can place the cooled peppermint teabags placed over the eyes; cucumber slices applied directly on top of the eyes;

Eating a variety of these cooling foods can also be helpful to provide some relief from hot and dry summer days. Please refer to the chart below for an assortment of cooling foods for grains, vegetables, fruits, protein, drinks, herbs and spices.

If you have any concerns or are wondering if cooling foods could be good for you, please consider booking an appointment with one of our practitioners. One of the reasons why having a consultation is so important, is to get an individualised treatment program devised specifically for you, which is a key benefit of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Taking Care of Your Health in the New Year of the Pig

Taking Care of Your Health in the New Year of the Pig

Taking Care of Your Health in the New Year of the PigYour Health in the New Year

by Bing Qian

“In the Chinese zodiac, the pig (boar) is realistic, faithful in friendship, stylish, perfectionist and hard working. He is a tolerant – being recognised by his friends for his kindness and generosity.”

Happy New Year and Happy Chinese New Year!  2019 on the western calendar, is now more than one month old, so how are you doing so far?

Some of the benefits that arise from the separation of the western new year (signalling holidays and celebration) and the lunar one (which, here in Australia, coincides with back-to-school and busyness) is that you have another chance to reset. Hopefully, you had a change of pace and activity during January and are now feeling refreshed and energised.

The Year of the Pig…  oink, oink

The Year of the Pig winds up the twelve-year Chinese zodiacal cycle. Pigs love their comfort and they are very sensitive creatures who generally do not seek to harm themselves or others. Thus, the Year of the Pig is generally a year of nurture and prosperity with no major shake-ups or catastrophes.

But, guess what? The danger of this is that you become complacent, especially about your health and diet, and don’t give your mind and body the attention they deserve.

Listen, Pay Attention, and Take Responsibility for Your Health

At Bing’s Natural Health we emphasise your involvement in your own health journey. Our practitioners are your partners in progress towards your goals, because what you do at home is an even more important part of your journey than what we do in the clinic.

It’s true that regular acupuncturemassagecuppingherbal medicine,  and other TCM treatments strengthen and balance your energies, but if you don’t develop regular habits of appropriate exercise, diet, thoughts, and remembering to take your prescription herbs at home, then your benefits will be limited. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the habits you practice every day are the foundation of your health and well-being, while visits to the clinic are essential to support your daily practices.

If you want to improve your health in the new year, so that you enjoy increasing levels of vitality, energy, and joy, then it’s your responsibility to find out what your body needs, and you also need to pay attention as those needs change. You’ve probably noticed that some days you really look forward to certain foods or activities and other days you don’t. It’s a good idea to pay attention to those cravings and desires because they can be important cues for your practitioner (and yourself).

Maybe your body really does need a break from your regular exercise routine or more sleep. While I don’t suggest that you succumb to that urge to eat the whole box of chocolates or 3 slices of cake, maybe your body (or your mind) is telling you something about its needs. Your awareness combined with your practitioner’s expertise can often disentangle apparently random urges and use them to diagnose and strengthen the appropriate channels.

Balance, Moderation, and Wisdom

In TCM, our focus is on strengthening and balancing your energies and providing support and healing to weaker areas rather than pushing compromised organs to perform better. That is why we ask so many questions in addition to our observation of your vital signs.

We want to teach you to understand your own body, read the signals it is sending you, and respond appropriately. You don’t need to know all about TCM, you just need to know what is relevant for your current state and participate in the ongoing journey of discovery. So it’s very important to listen to your body between consultations, to ask your practitioner questions, and to become an active partner in your own journey.

Wishing you every success with your health in the New Year.

Year of the Earth Pig

Year of the Earth Pig

Year of the Earth Pig – February 5th 2019 – January 24th 2020Year of the Earth Pig

Expand your energy and express your true self…

In 2019, Pigs Truly Do Fly!

We say goodbye to the demanding energies in 2018 and The Year of the Yang Earth Dog “Wu Xu” where events felt they all rolled in together and time just flew by. The energy in the 2019 Chinese New Year shifts dramatically with the arrival of the Yin Earth Pig/Boar (Ji Hai). It’s going to be a better year than 2018.  Some also believe it to be the special “Year of the Golden Pig,” which comes every 600 years, when calculated using a combination of the Chinese zodiac and yin and yang theory.

Fanfare please, as we welcome in the “Year of the Earth Pig”. 

Why all of the hoo-ha? Well here’s the thing! 2019 promises to bring luck and good fortune to all of the Chinese zodiac signs! The benevolence of the Pig (aka Boar) augers a period of prosperity, joy, friendship and relaxation. It will be an auspicious year because the Pig attracts success in all the spheres of life. During this year, the Pig’s noble attributes of kindness and compelling positivity rub-off on the whole of the earth.  There should be good news on the horizon with world events and hopefully a more calming influence in the Middle Eastern countries with huge leaps forward in relationships worldwide.

What will be in store for you? In Chinese culture, Pigs are the symbol of wealth and prosperity.
According to Chinese astrology, 2019 will be a great year to make money, and a good year to invest! (Unless you are lazy or careless in regard to attention to your budget which will result in losses)  It’s going to be good for people who are planning to start their businesses.

According to the Chinese predictor, this year will be a year of love and friendship for all of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. As the Pig attracts success in all the aspects of life, it will be an eventful year where the lucky star shines brightly upon all. The Pig is blessed with success, good fortune and wealth. Associated with the Earth element it should also bring some stability and balance to your life. 2019 is also called The Year of the Brown Pig because brown is connected to the earth.

A time to review where you have been – and renew your commitment to where you are going…

The carefreeness of the Year of the Earth Pig marks the end of a complete rotation cycle of the twelve signs of the animals of the Chinese zodiac and is also the signal to take a well-deserved break. This is the perfect time to carry out an in-depth review of the previous years, and to build the energy reserves that will be needed to take you forward into the new cycle that begins the long awaited year of the Year of the Yang Metal Rat in 2020. (Geng Zi)

A time to celebrate

Earth Pig years can be delightful, filled with the enjoyment of celebrating life with the people we love. The best way ahead this year, is to balance this energy with mindfulness and awareness of your bigger goals. Create work/life balance and apply yourself to what you want to achieve. Don’t waste this time dreaming, get-go out of your comfort zone and align with the courageous Pig. Go out and chase your dreams no matter how crazy it looks.

Can it get even better? You can bet it can!

The great news is that it is a Universal 3 Year and it is adding to the amazing vibration of the Pig. This is the year to truly express to the world the truth of us. Piggy back on the fabulous creative energy of a Universal 3 Year. The number 3 in numerology is the number of creative self-expression, emotional sensitivity and it’s the number of joy, optimism, and social engagement. The energy of the 3 is buoyant, dynamic, and is a hub of creativity. Universally we’re being offered energy supporting us in infusing creativity and actual fun and connection into all that we do. It may seem counter intuitive, yet humour and lightness holds immense power in the face of the heaviness and monumental change happening in the world.

This year holds the opportunity to bridge the spiritual illumination opened in 2018 and infuse a newfound purpose and power into creating your next chapter.

Feng Shui in the Year of the Earth Pig: lucky symbols

  • Lucky Numbers: 4, 6, 8
  • Lucky Colours : yellow, grey, brown, golden
  • Lucky Days: the 2nd, the 7th, the 10th, the 11th day of every month of the Chinese calendar
  • Lucky Directions: southeast, northeast

Just one note of Feng Shui caution: worldwide finances may possibly cause problems in 2019 with a dominant earth energy and a yin polarity, there could be issues with global finances and worldwide stock markets.

Electroacupuncture for Weight Loss

Electroacupuncture for Weight Loss

In the following six(6) studies it is suggested that electroacupuncture for weight loss may be an effective therapy for obesity.

1. Electroacupuncture therapy for weight loss reduces serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels in obese women.

Background of this study:
The purpose in this study was to investigate the effect of acupuncture therapy on body weight and on levels of the serum total cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in obese women.

Method of this study:
Fifty-five women were studied in three groups as follows:
(1) control group (n = 12; mean age = 43.3 +/- 4.3, and mean body mass index {BMI} = 32.2 +/- 3.4);
(2) electroacupuncture (EA) (n = 22; mean age = 39.8 +/- 5.3, and BMI = 34.8 +/- 3.3); and
(3) diet restriction (n = 21; mean age = 42.7 +/- 3.9, and BMI = 34.9 +/- 3.3).

Electroacupuncture was performed using the ear points, Sanjiao (Hungry) and Shen Men (Stomach), and the body points, LI 4, LI 11, St 25, St 36, St 44 and Liv 3, once daily, for 30 minutes, for 20 days, whereas patients on diet restriction had a 1425 Kcal diet program, that consisted of 1425 Kcal daily for 20 days.

Results of this study:
There was a 4.8% weight reduction in patients with electroacupuncture application, whereas patients on diet restriction had a 2.5% weight reduction. There were significant decreases in total cholesterol and triglyceride levels in electroacupuncture and diet groups compared with the control group (p < 0.05 in both cases). Furthermore, there was a decrease in LDL levels in the EA group compared with the control group (p < 0.05). No significant changes could be found in HDL levels among the three groups.

Conclusions of this study:
Our results suggest that electroacupuncture application in obese women may decrease the serum total cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL cholesterol levels by increasing the serum beta endorphin level. This lipolytic effect of electroacupuncture may also reduce the morbidity of obesity by mobilizing the energy stores that result in weight reduction.

 2.  Changes in levels of serum insulin, C-Peptide and glucose after electroacupuncture and diet therapy in obese women.

Background of this study:
The purpose was to investigate the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) therapy on body weight and on levels of serum insulin, c-peptide and glucose in obese women.

Method of this study:
52 healthy women were included in this study and were allocated into three groups:
1) Placebo EA group (n = 15; mean age = 41.8 +/- 4.6 and mean body mass index {BMI} = 33.2 +/- 3.5);
2) EA group (n = 20; mean age = 42.1 +/- 4.4 and BMI = 35.9 +/- 3.6) and
3) Diet restriction group (n = 20; mean age = 42.9 +/- 4.3 and BMI = 34.7 +/- 2.7).

Electroacupuncture was applied to the ear points Hunger and Shen Men on alternating days and to the body points LI 4, LI 11, St 36 and St 44 once a day for 30 minutes over 20 days. Diet restriction that entailed a 1450 kilocalorie (kcal) diet program was applied to the three groups for 20 days.

Results of this study:
An increase in weight loss was observed when weight loss in the EA group (p < 0.000) was compared to that in the diet restricted and placebo EA groups using the Tukey HSD test. There were increases in the serum insulin (p < 0.001) and c-peptide levels (p < 0.000) in the women treated with electroacupuncture compared to those in the women treated with the placebo electroacupuncture and diet restriction groups. A decrease was observed in the glucose levels (p < 0.01) in both the EA and diet restriction groups compared to those in the placebo electroacupuncture group.

Conclusions of this study:
Our results suggest that electroacupuncture therapy is an effective method in treating obesity. Electroacupuncture therapy also helps serum glucose levels to decrease through the increase of serum insulin and c-peptide levels.

 3.  Changes in serum leptin and beta endorphin levels with weight loss by electroacupuncture and diet restriction in obesity treatment.

Background of this study:
This study aimed to investigate the role of changes in leptin and beta endorphin (BE) levels in weight loss following electroacupuncture (EA) application in obesity treatment.

Method of this study:
Electroacupuncture was applied to 20 females who were 41.45 +/- 4.71 years old and had a body mass index of 36.00 +/- 2.66; and a diet program was applied to 20 females who were 42.30 +/- 4.35 years old and had a body mass index of 34.90 +/- 3.21.

Results of this study:
There was a 4.5% weight reduction in the patients with electroacupuncture application, whereas patients on diet restriction had a 3.1% weight reduction. A decrease of loss of body weight was observed in the electroacupuncture group (p < 0.000) when compared against the diet restricted group. A decrease of serum leptin levels (p < 0.000) and an increase in the serum BE (p < 0.05) levels were observed in the electroacupuncture group compared to the diet restricted group. In this study, reduced serum leptin levels paralleling to weight loss were observed in the electroacupuncture group. Furthermore, it is thought that in the electroacupuncture applied group, increasing serum BE level probably enhanced the lipolitic activity which may have caused weight loss in obese people by mobilizing energy stores.

Conclusions of this study:
It may be considered that the electroacupuncture application with diet restriction in obesity treatment is more effective than the diet restriction alone.

4.  Serum IgG, IgA, IgM, and IgE levels after electroacupuncture and diet therapy in obese women.

Background of this study:
The study investigated the effect of acupuncture therapy on obese women’s body weight and peripheral blood levels of serum immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin A (IgA), immunoglobulin M (IgM), and immunoglobulin E (IgE).

Method of this study:
Sixty-three healthy women were assigned into 3 groups:-  
1) placebo electroacupuncture (n = 13; mean age, 40.5 +/- 4.2 years; body mass index [BMI], 33.5 +/- 4.2),
2) diet restriction (n = 23; mean age, 42.9 +/- 4.0 years; BMI, 34.6 +/- 2.9), and
3) electroacupuncture (n = 24; mean age, 40.1 +/- 5.9 years; BMI, 33.9 +/- 2.7).

Electroacupuncture was applied to the Hunger and Shen Men ear points and to the LI 4, LI 11, St 36, St 44, and Ren 6 body points for 30 min once daily for 20 days. A restricted diet of 1400 kilocalories was given to participants in all 3 groups for 20 days.

Results of this study:
Weight was lost significantly in subjects in the electroacupuncture group compared to those in the diet restriction and placebo electroacupuncture groups (p < 0.000, Tukey test). Modulations in serum IgG (p < 0.001) were apparent in women treated with electroacupuncture compared with women treated with placebo electroacupuncture and restricted diet only. No significant changes were seen in serum IgA, IgM, and IgE levels among the 3 groups.

Conclusions of this study:
Our results suggest that electroacupuncture can be effectively used to treat obesity. We also observed a modulating effect of serum IgG, which is associated with weight loss, in patients in the electroacupuncture group.

5.  The efficacy of electroacupuncture therapy for weight loss changes plasma lipoprotein A, apolipoprotein A and apolipoprotein B levels in obese women.

Background of this study:
In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effects of electroacupuncture treatment on lipoprotein A, apolipoprotein A and apolipoprotein B levels in obese subjects.

Method of this study:
Fifty-eight women were studied in 3 groups as follows:
1) Placebo acupuncture (n = 15; mean age = 41.47 +/- 4.61, and mean body mass index {BMI} = 33.43 +/- 3.10);
2) Electroacupuncture (EA) (n = 20; mean age = 40.55 +/- 5.30, and BMI = 35.65 +/- 3.84) and
3) Diet restriction groups (n = 23; mean age = 42.91 +/- 4.02, and BMI = 34.78 +/- 3.29).

Electroacupuncture was performed using the ear points, Hungry, Shen Men and Stomach the body points, Hegu (LI 4), Quchi (LI 11), Tianshu (St 25), Zusanli (St 36), Neiting (St 44) and Taichong (Liv 3) for 20 days. Intragroup comparisons were made by using paired samples t-test whereas intergroup differences were investigated by the two-way variation analysis and LSD test.

Results of this study:
There was a 4.7% (p < 0.001) weight reduction in patients with electroacupuncture application, whereas patients in diet restriction had a 2.9% (p < 0.001) weight reduction. There were significant decreases in lipoprotein A (p < 0.05) and apolipoprotein B (p < 0.05) levels in the  electroacupuncture compared to the control group and no changes in apolipoprotein A levels was observed in electroacupuncture, diet and placebo acupuncture groups.

Conclusions of this study:
Electroacupuncture therapy may be a useful approach for the treatment of obesity for both losing weight and lowing the risk factors for cardiovascular disease associated with obesity, since this application may decrease the plasma lipoprotein A and apolipoprotein B levels.

Chinese Medicine Hay Fever Management

Chinese Medicine Hay Fever Management

Chinese medicine has been shown to be effective for the relief of hay fever symptoms. It is important to pay immediate attention to your hay fever because otherwise the symptoms may get worse as you age.

You have probably noticed that people around you are experiencing symptoms of hay fever and reaching for an antihistamine. I appreciate the desire to alleviate your misery with a quick fix, but I also encourage my friends and family to address the root cause of their problem because many people find that untreated hay fever and allergies turns into chronic sinusitis or other complications in later years.

What is the Difference Between Hayfever and Allergies?

Hay fever is usually provoked by seasonal allergens like grasses and seeds, whereas allergies are often ongoing and may be caused by everyday allergens like dust, fur and chemicals. The symptoms are very similar: itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose, a dry cough, scratchy throat and the dreaded post-nasal drip. All these lead to a swelling of the soft tissue in the area as your body rushes in fluids to flush out the offending particles. Antihistamines and other over-the-counter medications reduce the symptoms and help you to feel better, but they do not address the root cause of your susceptibility.

Why are Some People More Susceptible than Others?

It’s easy enough to understand why children and the elderly might be susceptible to allergens, but why do otherwise healthy people suffer as well? The reality is, that if every organ in your body was functioning perfectly, nothing would affect you. Allergies, hay fever, asthma… are all signs that something in your body is compromised. You can choose to ignore the warning signs and do nothing because, after all, your symptoms aren’t that bad and lots of your friends are also suffering… or you can act on the information your body is giving you. Chinese medicine can help.

What do Allergies and Asthma Indicate About Your Overall Health?

Allergies and asthma are an indication that your spleen and lungs are experiencing some level of stress and loss of function. These two systems mutually assist each other. Your spleen turns the food you eat into energy which promotes health lung function. When your food digestion is impaired because your spleen is not working as well as possible, then your lungs tend to be more susceptible to asthma and other symptoms. You may notice that you feel tired, breathless, have a weak voice, your head feels fuzzy, or you may develop eczema or dermatitis. These symptoms may be seasonal, but they are a sign of your vulnerability to other diseases and symptoms that may last longer.

You probably know people with asthma and allergies who tend to catch colds more often and experience longer lasting and more severe symptoms than ‘healthy’ people. This is because their immune system is being overworked on a long-term basis. These people are most likely to develop more severe symptoms as they age as the ongoing stress on their organs builds up to the point where their body can no longer cope.

Chinese Medicine Hay Fever Management

The good news is that strengthening these systems through acupuncturedietary changesChinese herbs,  and exercise can alleviate your seasonal symptoms and improve your overall health by working on the root cause rather than just the symptoms.
