Here are some very simple but effective tips to feel your best in winter.
- Get Cozy and Wear Socks!
One of my favorite cold season health tips is to wear warm socks! Keeping your feet warm helps increase circulation and stimulates important acupuncture immune points on the feet.
- Drink Bone Broth or a mineral rich vegetable broth.
I've included my bone broth recipe below - enjoy!!!
- Make sure to have a bountiful amount of Vitamin C + Herbs/Spices.
Kale, spinach and other dark leafy greens, plus bell peppers (we recommend to cook your veggies this time of the year for optimal health!), citrus fruit + so many more are rich in Vitamin C. Plus don't forget to add herbs/spices (like ginger, garlic, onions, black peppercorns, cayenne, etc.) in your diet to give you that immune kick.
- Drink plenty of water.
This one is a no-brainer but we need to be well hydrated even when the temperatures drop.
- Get Acupuncture! Book your appointment now.
Jessica is now accepting appointments Tuesday - Friday! And book with Melinda Phoenix from East West Collaborative Health while she is filling in for Erin over the holidays.
