The Zodiac Water Element Signs: Cancer/Scorpio/Pisces

HERBS ARE NATURE'S MEDICINE . . . here are more excerpts from my book.

So what is so special about your zodiac or sun sign? The Sun is the life force behind each living organism. Each person is endowed with the power provided by the Sun when he arrives on this planet and it is up to him to use this resource. 

The last few articles in my herbal column have been about the Water signs.  If you are a Water sign, you are tuned into the many shades of meaning in relationships, and at times can absorb "vibes" from others.  Water signs have to work harder than other elements to maintain their personal boundaries.

Cancer Health Concerns: Cancer rules the Lymphatic System; heartburn, gastric disorders and obesity are major concerns; they usually suffer in silence as they are not ones who communicate freely. Though they have the tough outer shell of the crab they also have it’s soft belly. Watch food intake, as Cancerians are often the greatest of worriers, which may in turn lead to overeating and an expanding waistline.

Scorpio Health Concerns: Scorpio rules the Reproductive System; they should avoid highly seasoned foods, allow time for rest and fresh air, as they tend to suffer ruptures, hemorrhoids and occasionally toxic diseases.  Scorpios don't understand moderation, therefore sometimes indulge in excess eating, drinking and smoking - if they exercise moderation early on, they can set themselves up for a happy and prosperous adult life.

Pisces Health Concerns: Pisces rules the Integumentary System; some ailments which plague Pisceans are foot bunions, bone spurs and heel bruising/pain.  Pisceans beware of addictions that cause them to withdraw from reality by drinking or using drugs to escape things that trouble them.  The Piscean, being acutely sensitive, may tend to display the symptoms of those they may be tending.

Healing Your Body Organs with the Elements in Nature

HERBS ARE NATURE'S MEDICINE

The most important element in the body is WATER. Its yin/yang organs are the kidneys and bladder. They are the most important organs because they are responsible for providing all twelve organs in the body with their personal Chi (energy).

The next most important element is WOOD.  Its yin/yang organs are the liver and gall bladder, because they are responsible for detoxifying our entire body (WHEN IT IS AT REST)!  If you sleep and wake tired, have restless and interrupted sleep, little inspiration or clarity of thoughts, your liver needs rejuvenating and balancing.

Treating these two elements with herbs will replenish energy and rejuvenate functionality. Then your energy rises, digestion improves, sleep is harmonized and the mind can function more clearly.  Drink a full glass of (room temperature) alkaline water DAILY within 20min of waking, and another within the next hour – and to experience less fatigue, better digestion and regularity.

Understanding how the elements manifest in your anatomy and physiology, which herbs to take to improve our kidney and liver functions, will improve the quality of our physical and emotional health. 

WOOD ELEMENT

To discover more about healing with the elements, we must understand that as “The Home of the Soul” and being the body's largest internal organ, THE LIVER is ruler over Spring.  The LIVER OPENS INTO THE EYES and is LIKE “A GENERAL OF AN ARMY” because it maintains evenness and harmony of movement throughout the body! It is the most important detoxification system in the body and as such, is also most sensitive to stagnation or stuck-ness (of Energy, Blood, and Meridian Chi).

The Wood Element (liver and gallbladder) rules living, growing entities: trees, plants and the human body, and all growing structures: roots, trunk and limbs for trees and plants; the spine, limbs and joints in our body. The health of the liver and gallbladder is revealed in the finger and toenails as well as in the muscles, tendons and ligaments.  A Wood imbalance can result in spinal problems, poor flexibility, or a weak-rootedness of an individual; arthritis is viewed as a wood problem.

Bitter herbs are a good therapy for the liver, as they are purifying, sedating and heat-dispelling. Alterative herbs are often taken in spring as blood purifiers. Some COOLING ALTERATIVES are aloe, Echinacea, plantain, poke root, red clover and goldenseal.  Some HEATING ALTERATIVES are bayberry, cayenne, cinnamon, garlic, black pepper, and white poplar bark. 

FIRE ELEMENT

The HEART is our CENTER of CONSCIOUSNESS and is associated with the emotions of joy and sadness.  The condition of the heart may be read from a person's tongue and skin complexion.  The Heart not only rules the blood but it also STORES THE SHEN (Spirit).  When the heart's blood and chi are harmonious, Spirit is nourished; when the storing of blood is impaired, symptoms associated with the Shen manifest: insomnia, excessive dreaming, forgetfulness and extreme disorders, like hysteria, irrational behavior, insanity and delirium. 

The small intestines receive the stomach contents and continues the job of separating good food from bad and absorption of nutrients.  Its length and large surface area send the nutrients from what you eat directly into the blood supply. Disharmonies manifest as urinary and digestive disorders such as abdominal pain, internal rumblings, diarrhea or constipation.

These two organs represent the most Yang of all elements, the Fire Element.  The function of the Fire Element is to provide overall harmony to our circulation and warmth; but not only to maintain heat but also to give warmth to others.

Herbs to warm and tonify heart yang: aconite, cinnamon, codonopsis, hoelen, hawthorne berries, marshmallow root. 

To reinforce heart chi and nourish heart yin: rehmania, tang kuei, peony, zizyphus seeds, schizandra. 

For the small intestines: goldenseal, Oregon grape root, barberry root, plantain (seeds) and black haw.

Carole Tingling, LMT 

Carole has been licensed since 1999.  For almost twenty years she has studied and incorporated into her chair massage practice: sports massage, negative pressure (cupping) therapy, and most recently certified in peri-natal and lymph drainage massage. 

Carole's practice is therapeutic non-sexual bodywork.  Her focus is healing, safe, appropriate touch.


Touch is one of our most powerful forms of communication.  Therapy is a form of safe touch during which there is a physical conversation between the therapist and the client.  Your body already has he knowledge of self-healing.  It is my job as your therapist to merely remind it.  THAT IS THE CONVERSATION.  

Through gentle, appropriate and experienced safe touch, I plan on sitting in her chair at the end of this day's event, so that she can help to remind my body and guide it back towards health, normalcy, ease and comfort.

Located in the heart of Central Harlem, I am available BY APPOINTMENT, for full body therapies.  I will bring my chair to your office, facility, center, or indoor/outdoor event.  I do small spa parties, team after sporting event parties, bridal showers, pre-wedding calming massages, ladies nights, etc.

Healing Foods in your Kitchen

HERBS ARE NATURE'S MEDICINE . . . and we can use herbs to raise our spirits, energy and health for 2017.  Let's not sit on what we have learned this past year, but instead put much of it into practice. A place in our homes that is bursting with healing herbs/foods is the kitchen. The mustard on your table and many of the spices on your shelf come from herbs; most of the vegetables in your salad are herbs; and if you have a yard, many of the plants growing there (whether by your or their own design) are also herbs.

Because our survival is dependent upon our ingestion of food for physical sustenance, digestion is the single most important function of our living organism (next to air and water).  DIGESTION, ASSIMILATION, and ELIMINATION are three extremely important and pivotal aspects of health, and a series of foods and spices that assist our bodies in these areas are called carminatives, laxatives, cholagogues, emetics, parasiticides, sialagogues, and bitters.  The most common are Anise seed, Basil (relieves allergies), Bay leaves, Black Pepper (rids congestion), Caraway, Cardamom, Cayenne (can stop stroke/heart attack), Cinnamon, Cloves, Coriander, Cumin, Fennel (relieves gas), Fenugreek (lung congestion, stomach ulcers), Garlic and Ginger, Marjoram, Mustard Seed, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme, just to name   a few. 

Other herbs like uva ursi, parsley root, gentian root, red raspberry leaves, buchu leaves, saw palmetto berries, kelp, and bladderwrack all contain chemical ingredients that promote the body’s ability to reduce high blood sugar and supports the body’s fight against diabetes. 

Each of these herbs, when used with others in effective combinations, relieves disease and restores balance to our organs.  Most of the illnesses and diseases we experience are a direct result of the types of foods we eat.

Discover how (and when) to eat the foods/herbs that will rid the body of disease forever – register early for our March 2017 herb classes.

ROSEMARY, which is often used to season bread and meats, as a tea is useful for bad breath, coughs, headaches and bronchitis (for asthma make into a syrup with equal parts mullein and coltsfoot).  

Rosemary is also good for gas/indigestion and menopause. In addition, it can treat rheumatism, premature balding, dandruff, urinary problems and wounds/sores.


CELERY SEED tea sipped slowly will improve appetite, relieve hives and hysteria; will ease insomnia taken one-hour before retiring; good for nervousness/hyperactivity (with equal parts skullcap), rheumatism (with Damiana).  Celery seed will serve as a stimulant as a strong morning tea. Promotes urination and as an external wash/internal douche will relieve itching rashes/venereal disease.

There is a multitude of healing virtues from the Ocean: SEAWEEDS. Whether taken as powdered supplements or added to baths, seaweeds are rich in iodine and will help balance the thyroid, and significantly, will act as an anti-inflammatory, reducing painful swollen joints. Seaweed is a natural antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and also contains antiseptic properties.  Seaweed has the ability to remove radioactive strontium and other heavy metals from our bodies and can benefit people who have had exposure to radiotherapy or chemical intervention.

Many types of seaweeds are edible. They contain more protein than meat, more calcium than milk and contain many important vitamins including anti-stress B vitamins, Vitamin K, and important minerals. Seaweed is rich in magnesium and manganese.

HERBS ARE NATURE'S MEDICINE . . . and they act similarly to our foods, in that they provide our body with nutrients and other components that enhance organ functions. The same way we take food to strengthen bones, build our blood, feed our nervous system, reduce cholesterol, etc., herbs are used in the same way to feed, rejuvenate and regenerate our organs. 

Formulas made with specific herbs act directly on that organ system, enabling it to rid itself of the culprits causing the disease. Tonics made in mild combinations and taken in small amounts over a long period of time has a general healing effect on the whole body and facilitates a healthy balance of that system's vital energy. 

To rejuvenate the liver (and subsequently every organ in the body), drink a tonic made from these herbs a few times a week: Gentian, Dandelion, Yellow Dock, Oregon Grape Root, Blessed Thistle, Licorice, Skullcap, and Cayenne. 

To cleanse and detoxify the urinary system, combine Gravel Root, Parsley, Chickweed, Horsetail, Hydrangea, Marshmallow Root and Fu Ling and drink “cool” 2-3x weekly. 

To help heal difficult sores rinse with a tea of Comfrey, Plantain, Burdock and Black Walnut Bark. 

To rid persistent coughs, drink a tea of Coltsfoot, Mullein, Wild Cherry Bark and Licorice 3x daily.

Herbs for Healing the Women's Cycles: ELEVATING YOUR DIVINE FEMININE

Here are a few of the most recent articles I've written for the weekly column I write in my community Newspaper.

HERBS ARE NATURE'S MEDICINE . . . . 

December 29, 2016

Taking herbs for various WOMEN'S LIFE CYCLES can create a balanced and harmonious lifestyle. The comfort and ease of pregnancy and labor can be facilitated with herbs.  Red raspberry is a specific herb for the entire reproductive system, regardless of age (after the onset of the menses). Following are herbal suggestions for various stages, pre-and-post, pregnancy/childbirth.


To alleviate symptoms of jaundice, anemia, constipation and toxemia: alfalfa and red raspberry leaves. To reduce acidity and help with iron assimilation: borage, nettle and clover leaves. As a general tonic: comfrey. To tone uterine muscles: red raspberry, apple peels, mint, blackberry and peach leaves (also reduces morning sickness).  To aid during childbirth: basil, lavender, nutmeg, red raspberry; squaw vine (taken during last two weeks). To expel the placenta: chamomile, angelica root, pennyroyal, basil. Afterbirth, to restore the blood: alfalfa, comfrey; to heal placenta site: comfrey, plantain; to stop excess bleeding: yarrow, shepherd's purse, nettle. Other birthing herbs: blue cohosh, lobelia, squaw vine, sassafras.  Breastfeeding: bayberry, milkwort, chamomile, fennel, hops, blessed thistle, lavender. To increase milk production: fennel seeds, alfalfa, borage, anise/star anise seeds. To decrease milk: mugwort, sage, mullein, comfrey – for sore breasts use these as a leaf compress or tea. 

January 5, 2017

Taking herbs for various WOMEN'S LIFE CYCLES can create a balanced and more harmonious lifestyle. Taking herbs regularly can bring a level of comfort and ease during pregnancy and labor.  Red raspberry is a specific herb for the entire reproductive system, regardless of age (after the onset of the menses).  Red raspberry tea should be taken daily by every woman.

A less common, but very effective herb for women’s cycles, is Squaw Vine, also called Partridgeberry.  The whole herb (above ground part) is used medicinally, as it is used to restore balance and tone to the uterus and liver, attested to by its bitter taste and cool energy.

Squaw vine is used for menstrual irregularities, and as a parturient to prepare the womb for childbirth.  It works very well when combined with two parts red raspberry leaves, one part black cohosh and false unicorn, and two parts Echinacea root for menstrual irregularities and vaginal discharge.

Squaw vine also proves very useful when used in the last few weeks of pregnancy to facilitate labor, and using the tea as a wash/compress for the breasts to ease soreness, cracked nipples and other discomforts of breastfeeding. After birth, it can be very helpful in treating post-partum depression and improving the flow of breastmilk.

January 19, 2017

Taking herbs for various WOMEN'S LIFE CYCLES can bring comfort and ease of pregnancy and labor, and pre- and post-menopause.  Red raspberry is a specific herb for the entire reproductive system, regardless of age (after the onset of the menses).

BLACK HAW is an antispasmodic, a uterine tonic (prevents miscarriage), a nervine and antidysentery herb.  We use the stem and root bark medicinally.  It is not very well known but is excellent when used for painful menses and many other gynecological disorders.  It also helps ease menopausal symptoms, and it treats excessive bleeding, prolapsed uterus, and morning sickness.

Because of its strong antispasmodic properties, combined with other herbs, it helps alleviate asthma, palpitations, heart disease and mood swings.

Black haw can be taken in capsules, as a tincture or tea (decoction): add two teaspoons of the dried bark to one and a half cups of boiling water, covered, and let boil for two minutes.  Lower flame and simmer for another eight minutes, covered.  Let cool, strain and drink tea three times daily for severe conditions; or one dropper-full of the tincture three times daily.
AVOID DURING PREGNANCY: tansy, pennyroyal, rue, angelica.
