For thousands of years, this special plant has earned wide respect for therapeutic properties that can range from improving circulation to stimulating the immune system. Cooked in foods, steeped in teas and even soaked in baths, ginger warms the body from the inside out.
In China, after a woman gives birth, Ginger is used extensively to help her regain her ‘Chi’. The new mother not only bathes in ginger but her diet also includes of all things ginger. The experience of childbirth depletes the body of ‘Chi’ making her vulnerable and in a state of ‘yin’. Ginger considered ‘yang,’ stimulates and brings the body back into balance.
SKIN CARE BENEFITS OF GINGER:
- Slows the Aging Process: Free radicals cause damage to healthy cell tissues, which speed up our natural aging process. Ginger is rich in antioxidants, long known for their power to prevent and repair damage caused by free radicals.
- Enhances Skin Tone: The warm spiciness of ginger boosts circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, increasing the body’s ability to eliminate toxins and absorb vital nutrients. This perfect balance stimulates Chi and is reflected in a glowing radiant complexion.
- Fortifies the Body: A warm spicy root, ginger assists with toning and strengthening the heart. Ginger also regulates our digestion and can help to alleviate pain and inflammation in muscle and connective tissue. In short, ginger makes a perfect defense against the daily life stressors that sap our energy, drain our Chi, and cause dull, lifeless skin and hair.
(or Qi, pronounced CHEE) Chinese Culture considers Chi the life force present in all living things.
To fully understand the concept of Chi, we must look at the nature of yin and yang. This eternal symbol of balance is comprised of two opposing yet complementary forces.
For example, the sun is yang and the moon is yin. Qualities or states of being hot, male or aggressive are considered yang. Cooling, calming or female are considered yin. They cannot exist without each other, nor can they remain fixed: they signify dynamic tension, interdependence and change.
Whether it’s internal or external influences, there are the inevitable peaks and valleys in life. Seasonal changes, overwork, poor nutrition, lack of sleep and exercise - simple everyday factors can easily tip the scales of harmony in our world as well as our bodies.
Yang organs such as the stomach and small intestine and yin organs such as the heart, lungs, and liver are connected by channels or meridians. When one aspect of yin or yang dominates, when organs become too yin or too yang, then the flow of Chi becomes obstructed. Stagnation occurs, and toxins accumulate. Eventually we see this reflected in our emotional wellbeing, the function of our organs and the appearance of our skin.
Our goal is to strive for balance since when Chi flows freely, we experience optimal health, wellbeing and vitality.
GingerChi believes being aware of the ebb and flow of yin and yang, and knowing how it affects Chi clears one’s path to understanding and achieving true beauty.
