How to Stay Healthy During Autumn/Winter 2021

How to Stay Healthy During Autumn/Winter 2021

If you've been paying close attention to our recent blogs, you'll know that an equal balance of Ying and Yang is the ultimate sweet spot when it comes to health and wellbeing. 

When you find that perfect medium, your health is in tip top condition and nothing can stand in your way (superman/supermanwoman-esque). 

But - there is a catch. 

These formulas only work in certain seasons. It's strange on first hearing, but think about it... 

Season changes mean changes in lifestyle.

We'd hope you wouldn't continue to wear t-shirts and shorts when it's snowing outside... so we naturally have to adapt to our surroundings!

Anyway, enough of us creating fictitious scenarios, here's how you can stay healthy during the cold season with the help of 2 Chinese elements...

Metal

In the Five Elements Theory, Metal represents a 'moving away' from the Yang energies given by Wood and Fire elements. 

Characteristic-wise, Metal's ability is to separate the unnecessary factors in life, refine and retain good and let go of things that don't serve us anymore (we need to take some of this advice ourselves)! 

Supplements that are classified as 'Metal' predominantly focus on providing purity to the internal function of our bodies in the colder months. 

And, as you've probably guessed, each supplement targets a different channel to boost your health & wellbeing. 

We've picked out our top 3 for you to keep your health in top condition this Winter...

Bi Yan Pian (Xanthium & Magnolia)

After suffering with the effects of a certain virus for over 18 months, the last thing many of us want is to feel under the weather when the temperatures drop in the Winter months.
 
Known for its ability to assist with cold symptoms, sneezing and congestion in the face, this supplement is great to keep those sniffles at bay. 
  
Best for: If you're prone to catch the common cold in Winter 

Gui Zhi Tang (Cinnamon Twig & White Peony)

On the topic of common cold symptoms, we're taking them up a notch here.

Gui Zhi Tang may assist with regulating body temperature, dispelling respiratory issues and providing general pain relief. 

This supplement is perfect to help shift those unwanted symptoms and get you back to your best. 

Best for: If you experience tough cold symptoms and want relief

Mai Men Dong Tang (Lily-Turf & Pinellia Rhizome)

Quite often, if you're not feeling 100%, your hunger levels may drop drastically. Who wants to miss out on great food while ill?

Mai Men Dong Tang may help with poor appetite, an upset stomach, fever and balancing blood sugar levels. 

I'm sure we can all agree that food is the way to our hearts, so don't compromise that over the coming months!

Best for: If your digestion levels drop when feeling unwell  

Water

Our good friend H2O is the second key element for the cold months ahead. 

Water's characteristics are to help converse vital energy and promote rest. 

Sounds like a plan for those who plan to hibernate for the foreseeable future, so here are our top 3 Water-based supplements for the cold months:  

Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan (Lotus Seed & Magnolia-Vine Fruit)

It's been a tough year - you're probably feeling tired, and we don't blame you. 

Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan may assist with boosting energy levels by lowering fatigue/weakness and providing general pain relief to your body. 

There are some additional benefits to this supplement if you're planning on other 'activities' in the Winter months, but we'll leave them for you to explore! 

Best for: If you want to fight fatigue and boost energy levels naturally

Liu Wei Di Huang Tang (Foxglove Root & Chinese Yam)

One for the ladies, this supplement has similar properties to assist your general wellbeing. 

Liu Wei Di Huang Tang may assist with female health, boosting energy, healthy blood sugar levels and dispelling a hot feeling in your body. 

This supplement is also great for a smoother menopausal transition! 

Best for: If you want a well-rounded 'pick me up' supplement 

Nuan Gong Yun Zi Wan (Rehmannia & Eucommia Bark)

Rounding up our cold month collection, this supplement is ideal for general internal wellness and harmony. 

Nuan Gong Yun Zi Wan may assist with blood circulation, improvement of bodily functions and hormone imbalance. 

Best for: If you're looking for internal harmony and balance
