I use God’s medicines, not CNN’s.
This is my way of giving our immune systems a big fat cozy warm hug as a gazillion vyruses do their thing & vyrus right now.
You know how we’ve been told cold temperatures don’t cause illness vyruses do? Well that’s only partially true– vyruses can create illness but cold can too.
It’s not the terrain versus the germ, its both– it’s the terrain AND the germ.
According to Sufi Medicine during the cold season, the humors of our body that are cold & wet in essence increase as the environment outside gets colder and wetter. We are a part of a nature and so our bodies follow the same seasonal cycles.
Because our human body is a micro-earth, when there is excess cold & wetness outside, there will often be in our bodies as well. And so our bodies will increase production of phlegm, which is the humour associated w/ water. Water is in essence cold & wet & is the element of winter, which is the season of cold & wet.💧
These are the months that many people will experience winter in their bodies, when the cold & wetness of water becomes excess & the production of phlegm increases. The increased water is than discharged as the body attempts to eliminate the excess & bring back balance.
Because their is an internal imbalance of the elements (water, fire, earth, air) the immune system also struggles & so becomes more susceptible to infections.
The law of opposites is the curative law in Sufi Medicine (in homeopathy it’s the Law of Similars) & so giving the body warmth is healing and curative during these times.
So get cozy w/ warming foods & practices right now: bone broths, teas, warm salt baths, yummy hugs w/ loved ones.
I always say the best diet is our own ancestral diet because our bodies remembers the food as medicines & our ancestors ate according to the cycles of the earth and her seasons.
For better health during the cold season:
✔Follow the laws of the cosmos
✔Tap into the healing of seasonal & ancestral foods🙏🏽
✔No need for experimental schmots
✔Listen to nature’s wisdom
✔Call on grandmother’s knowing
✔And use God’s medicines not CNN’s.
What do you put in your healing soup?🙏🏽
