Autumn – One Step Before The Long Cold Winter

Posted by on Oct 13, 2015 in Featured, Health, Short Entries | Comments Off on Autumn – One Step Before The Long Cold Winter

Autumn – One Step Before The Long Cold Winter

According to ancient Chinese Philosophy the man is a representative of the universe. He’s a  microcosm of the macrocosms. Therefore, it is man’s desire to become one with nature and live according to its rules. One of the basic but most important ways to connect with nature is to synchronize life’s activities with the changing of the seasons. Among the five elements, the autumn season is controlled by the metal element. The action of metal is to cut; cut and separate the unnecessary from the necessary, to keep what’s needed and get rid of the waste. Autumn is a time to store everything that is essential and necessary for survival, and let go of all the excess from the the summer. In the natural world, we see animals trying to gain weight, store food, and prepare their homes to be warm and cozy in preparation for the long winter months ahead. Trees are no longer giving fruits and leaves fall down to the earth, all in an effort to preserve energy. For many of us, the fall is a time where we “get back to work” and return to our busy routines. Many people will work exceptionally hard as the seasons change, but without balance, they find themselves burnt out by the time November comes around. For human beings, autumn presents a time to find a healthy balance between work/family/school routines and self-care. It is a time to slow down and recover from the summer’s fast-paced activities. It encourages us to look into ourselves in an introspective way and do some internal emotional cleansing. It’s a good time for moderate physical activities like yoga, tai chi, meditation or other deep breathing exercises. The typical climate of autumn is a chilly, dry wind. According to Chinese Medicine, the wind is a “carrier” of external pathogens like viruses and bacteria. These winds tend to penetrate the body through the neck and the back of the neck; for women the lower abdominal region is another area of susceptibility. To strengthen our “immune system” energy, it is very important to keep these areas warm and covered. It is also very important to adjust our diet. It is a good time to eat concentrated foods with a contracted quality, like nuts, brown rice of any kind, legumes (especially  lentils), and an assortment of root vegetables like radishes, kohlrabi, turnips, celery root, and onion & garlic. Change of Season Soup (click here for recipe) is a great addition to the autumn diet as it tonifies the immune system and nourishes the internal organs. Generally, cooking methods appropriate to the fall season will be longer, and more warm foods should be consumed – such as soups and stews which are easier on the digestive system and help our bodies cope with the colder temperatures. Sleep is also essential to overall health and strong immunity; as cold and flu season approaches, this is the time to prioritize rest by going to bed earlier and waking at a regular time. Just remember, in order to eat you need to cook first, in the same way, a healthy winter body requires support and preparation through the autumn!   Source Centre is pleased to bring you the Health Topic of the Month. Each month, the team at Source Centre looks at a health issue that’s making waves, breaking the news, and even sparking controversy. Health Topic of the Month gives you professional insight on today’s hot-button health issues from leaders in alternative health....

Training for a Half Marathon with Network Chiropractic Care

Training for a Half Marathon with Network Chiropractic Care

I love running. I love the freedom of starting my exercise regime as soon as I leave the house. It’s also a gratifying way to explore Toronto’s neighbourhoods in a way I would never have the patience for while commuting from place to place. I used to run regularly – my favourite route was through the Wychwood Park neighbourhood and around Casa Loma. That is, until I got injured. One day, I ran too far too fast after a brief hiatus with a worn out pair of old running shoes and I got a major case of shin splints. Running was never the same after that. Every time I ran, I developed aches and pains that made me feel too old for my age – like lower backaches, sore knee joints and even numbness in my limbs. I stopped running and opted for “lower impact” exercise like cycling, rowing and yoga. This summer, my good friend asked me to run a half marathon with her in Nice, France this upcoming November. It was a “bucket list” item we’ve been talking about for years and the opportunity was serendipitous so I took on the challenge. Luckily for me, since the time I stopped running regularly, I discovered the benefits of network chiropractic care. Before training for my half marathon, I would typically see my network chiropractor for a general tune-up once a month as a part of my personal stress management regimen. It feels like the combined effects of a relaxing deep tissue massage and invigorating 1hr yoga class. I started training at least once, sometimes twice a week, after seeing my chiropractor. I find it a vital part of my training regime to help keep me injury free. It’s also helpful to talk to my chiropractor about specific aches and pains – he gives me specific stretches to do at home so they don’t escalate to bonifide injuries or even permanent damage over time. I feel great. I feel invigorated to go for a two-hour run after a session with my network chiropractor. It also feels great after a particularly painful run to speed up my recovery. I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered my love for running. Network chiropractic care is my key to staying injury free and optimizing my performance for my half marathon!...
