“Clay can be dirt in the wrong hands, but clay can be art in the right hands”.
—Lupita Nyong’o (actress)
My late mentor, Dr. Richard Tan, showed me how to look at the patterns of life and health in a very mathematical and predictable way.
This is one of the reasons Chinese medicine explains your symptoms so systematically and your environment is included in the equation (which really is the definition of Holistic medicine).
Using a big picture view, I look at how things are naturally connected.
Dr. Tan also had an absolute fascination with Chinese astrology.
Now it may seem to you counter-intuitive to put math and astrology in the same sentence, I’m sure. Think of it as using the same holistic principles with an even bigger picture.
It helps to be prepared; to align your lifestyle with these predictions.
And always remember, like it says in the quote above, you determine what your hands create with it!
How to make the most of the Lunar New Year?
This annual 2-week pre-spring event is a great time for you to get that last bit of rest and play so desperately needed before it’s time to ‘plant and sow’ again.
Ideally, your preparations are already completed (you’ve cleaned out your clutter and swept your threshold) and now you take the time to welcome in the energy of what comes next…
There are a whole bunch of superstitions attached to this ethereal branch of Chinese medicine (called Ba Zi).
The art is to see underneath superstition to the common-sense that created it.
Let’s take a look at what is expected in this New Year and how to stay healthy in it!
