Autumn is really upon us now – time to look after your lungs and large intestine

Summer is at last well and truly over. It is still quite mild during the day, but the trees are well into shedding their leaves and our bodies are preparing themselves for the cold of winter. Metal is the element of Autumn. If our Metal energy is low, we may have problems iwith breathing and with bowels. There are a lot of sore throats and coughs around at the moment, which is a sign of our lungs being vulnerable and sensitive to the sudden changes in temperature.. Emotionally we may have difficulty identifying and maintaining boundaries.

Time for winter exercises

Well, it was so mild before Christmas and then we had all the usual excesses – so now it’s time for winter exercises! Winter is the time to look after our Kidney and Bladder – a time to close down and conserve our energy. There is often fear and despair in this season, and there have been quite a few deaths of celebrities early this year that have made us sad and aware of how precious our lives are. Pamper yourself a little and look forward to the Spring! Try this winter exercise.

Shiatsu Exercise classes

I am now offering a set of six weekly exercise classes as an introduction to Shiatsu and showing you how you can easily (and painlessly!) help yourself to keep healthy.

You will learn a few simple stretching exercises that you can do in five minutes every day as an addition to your early morning getting up routine.

Just five minutes every day works wonders! By doing this for the last fourteen years I have become more flexible than I have ever been!

We work on the six sets of energy channels:

Lung & Large Intestine

Stomach & Spleen

Heart and Small Intestine

Bladder & Kidney

Heart Protector & Triple Heater

Liver & Gall Bladder

We look at the function of these organs and how we can support them with simple exercises.

If you would like to take part in a class like this near you, or if there is a group of you interested, let me know.

The 5:2 diet now becomes known as the Fast Diet

…and it really does work! I have now lost a stone and feel great! What’s more, I have just been on holiday in Australia for three weeks, only put on one pound, didn’t have to worry for one moment, because I knew that as soon as I came back I only had to do one day’s “fasting” and I could lose a couple of pounds immediately (and I just did). It’s not really fasting – you can eat 500 calories, and for me that’s a slightly smaller breakfast and lunch, very light snacks, and a low calorie evening meal, no alcohol. You only have to do this for two days a week at first until you get to your target weight, then you can go to one day a week fasting, and it doesn’t matter if you miss a week or two.

Michael Moseley now has a book out called The Fast Diet and it is number one in the UK non-fiction charts – click through to my recommended books page to purchase a copy – get started now!
