Moving Into Fall — A Chinese Medicine Perspective

As we move into Fall, I notice my Qi turning in earlier for the day and the need for more deep rest. It isn’t surprising since the natural world around us is settling in earlier too – the birds, the trees, and the visual signal of darkness.

With this natural transition into Fall and Winter, in which it’s important to conserve and replenish our Qi for next Spring, I recommend building Qi in a gentle way.

Try adding Wild Goose Qi Gong into your wellness and movement routine, either as a work break or as part of your larger workout routine. Wild Goose Qi Gong brings a wonderful sense of calm, teaches you the stillness within movement – the yin within the yang – increases circulation, and most importantly, its goose-like movements are light and fun!

Here’s a good video for the Wild Goose Qi Gong:

One of our favorite products….

LyteShow is an electrolyte-replenishing liquid concentrate created for health-focused people who don’t want unnecessary additives, sweeteners, or calories in their electrolyte products.

Simply put, exercise, sweating, and even drinking alcohol can deplete the body of fluids and electrolytes. Added to the directed amount of water, LyteShow creates an isotonic beverage that rapidly replaces valuable electrolytes and fluids.

In fact, LyteShow’s mineral base has been clinically tested and has shown to be a significantly more efficient form of hydration than water alone.

Using wildfire firefighters as a study group, medical researchers found that the firefighters who added LyteShow to water drank far less water to achieve the same hydration as those who drank just plain water. LyteShow is an essential part of Dr. Connie and Dr. Marcel’s health maintenance program.
