Matcha Magic🍵 #quarantinekick
In Chinese medicine, spring brings the Liver System into focus. It governs growth and renewal. It’s the time to cleanse, to support the liver detoxification pathways. Time for nature to shedding the winter ‘sludge’ and emerge with a surge - like a sprout pushing its way up & out of the soil 🌱
Matcha & green tea has a detoxifying effect and is pack with antioxidants 👊 And it’s got a nice caffeine kick!
The Liver system is also associated with creativity. I’m currently working on a creative writing project and finding 🍵 + 📝 = a perfect pair 👌 ☯️
And guess what? There’s even a VEGETABLE in here - and you’d never know to taste it!
🌱 Matcha (unsweetened)
🌱 Coconut almond milk (unsweetened)
🌱 Collagen powder
🌱 Coconut oil
🌱 XCT oil
🌱 Green stevia
🌱 Spinach (I promise you don’t taste it!)
Blend it together and enjoy 😊

I am pausing my practice. For 2 weeks (for now)*.
I write this only hours after my last post. Because I can’t ignore the little voice. The little voice inside me that says ‘Do what you feel is right’. The little voice inside me that says ‘I’d rather be safe than sorry’. The little voice inside me that shouts ‘Bravo!’ when others I admire for their integrity are suspending their practices.
My little voice is not necessarily your little voice. And that is okay.
Despite spending countless hours reading countless articles debating best approaches to dealing with COVID-19 // Despite being someone who is generally most comfortable in the middle ground // Despite not being sure what's more contagious - the virus or the closures // Despite not being personally afraid of being sick (yet recognizing there are others at risk and wanting to ease the burden on our health care system) // Despite being self-employed and unsure of how to pay rent for the indefinite future... the little voice keeps saying, ‘Do it anyway.’
It guides me towards setting the example that feels most right for me, for now. My moral compass.
I will be contacting everyone with private appointments in the next two weeks to reschedule.
*In the interim I will be offering telemedicine for those who could benefit from herbal consultations, and/or self-administered guided acupressure sessions.
Thank you for your understanding. Be well, and I hope to see you before too long.
