Recently I have had clients who asked about motion sickness, actually, acupuncture can definitely help with that.
Personally, when I was young, I have a lot of digestion issues as well, the car is my nightmare. Basically, most time from the gas pressure your stomach, or other organs like the spleen, liver, or small intestine are unbalanced causing your sickness when you are in a car.
But when I learned Chinese Medicine and get some treatment from tui-na massage to release the tension in my neck and shoulder and acupuncture for my digestion, My motion sickness never bothers me again, only sometimes I have some bloating and was on the plane. I massage some acupressure point with some burp after, then much better.
So making your digestion maintenance is the key to motion sickness
So if you have a long trip, you get some acupuncture treatment before you go, and ask your acupuncturist about some different acupressure points that may work for you.
When I client has four pain points on the back muscles, I worked about 15mins, but still sore.
Base on the acupressue point for lowerback, I found there also four tightness ropy on his arms and legs, when I try to relax the point on arm and leg, back muscles much better. Is that interesting?
this is Fermented red tofu. In Summer, the heart will be working hard, and because of the heat and humidity, you may try this tofu for your heart. In TCM, red colour food is good for the heart.
Also, it helps balance the flora in the intestine. People have diarrhea or bloating, and constipation, this tofu can help too.
And it is very yummy, you can eat it like blue cheese with bread, it is salty.
Just a trick: mix with sesame paste or peanut butter, eat like a bugger sauce, or make a coat with chicken wings and then fry. It smells super good.
Monascus purpureus is the yeast used commercially in the production of blood cholesterol-lowering statins. It is fungus most important because of its use in the form of red yeast rice in the production of fermented food in China. Discoveries of cholesterol-lowering statins produced by this would have prompted research into its possible medical uses.
Find it at your local Asia supermarket and ask for assistance.
Try the one called Rose Red tofu, a little sweet and rose smell.
