Zenxin wishes all their customers a happy, healthy lunar new year 2016!
This lunar new year is symbolized by the fire monkey. Traditional associations are naturally with Sun Wu Kong of journey to the West fame. The monkey king’s indomitable spirit results in much fun as he does not hesitate to test the boundaries and use his intelligence to solve problems in most original ways.
Fire over metal suggests it’s time to take care of the heart and lungs. Stressful urban living can easily result in inflammation and high blood pressure, but you can relax in the knowledge that adding your favourite organic veggies such as Asian leafy greens, garlic, beetroot, ginger and turmeric to your diet, will help to smooth out these problems.
Metal relates to the respiratory system and skin. Dry brushing before showering in the morning will help maintain skin health and stimulate the immune system. Our lungs took quite a beating with last year’s haze, so nourish them with antioxidants from fresh organic vegetables and sprouted seeds and grains. If dairy is tolerated, a little organic Barambah yoghurt added to your breakfast smoothie is nourishing.
A useful habit a couple of hours before bedtime is to take a delicious cup of fragrant herb tea, breathe deeply and relax. Our organic mulberry tea grown in Zenxin Organic Park would be ideal, we are coming out with new combinations adding organic chamomile, lemongrass and hibiscus. Watch out for the new flavours!
