Chilli in my Socks?

What chilli in the socks?

I have never tried it, the thought of loose chilli in my bed does not appeal. I would recommend the chilli in the belly.

Clean up that gluggy blood and start something hot. Exercise is great, I am amazing myself at my new leash in exercise discovery. I decided to adapt the role, I will keep exercising until I am not enjoying it. Then I will stop.
Well this started with a jog round the block. Some would call it a jog, I would call it a shuffle. When I decided I was not enjoying it then I stopped. I would walk instead.
From here it has grown, the more I exercise because I enjoy it the more I enjoy it.
This has escalated now to me wanting to find mew ways of having pleasure. Bike riding and dancing has moved into my life sphere and what is good about it all is that I am thoroughly enjoying it!. Otherwise I stop.
I have noticed that since I have taken more physical exercise my cold fingers and toes has decreased and I feel the cold less.

What else do I have to say about Winter?

To be aware that having a cold is healthy response. Some can see it as unhealthy> what can be unhealthy is the repetitiveness of having a cold. If we have a cold every now and again then it is fine. The body has an acute attack and it throws out what it needs to. If we were to have 3 to 5 colds in a season or year, then this would not be healthy.

If the immune system is impaired with constant illness, and sickness then I would have to go with astragalus. Not for the hot heated conditions, though taken more longterm to slowing boost things up it is great. Could add Echinacea to give it that extra oomph.

It would be beneficial to start taking some winter herbs.
I always love the Echinacea and garlic succi combination. Many a time the children have gone to school smelling of garlic, though it has sped the whole cold and flu process along.
If there is a temperature starting and more flu like symptoms start, then I like to switch to a herb tea. I use my Chiron tea which has thyme, peppermint, elder, marshmallow in to name a few.
Boneset and yarrow is always so good when used together. The beauty about these remedies is that they can be used for the young and the old. Now that has to be good.

Hope you find these tips useful, add some ginger and cinnamon tea on a regular basis and things will start to warm up.
