🌿 Back in Action! Our Move & Herbal Adventures 🌿

Hi friends!

How's everyone doing? It's been quite the journey for us lately! We're thrilled to share that we've finally settled into Isaac's hometown in Oklahoma. 🏡✨

Over the past few weeks, we've been on a whirlwind adventure of packing, driving nearly 20 hours to our new home, and unpacking all our belongings. It's been both mentally and physically challenging, but we've got some amazing news to share - our secret weapons during this hectic time: Feng Mi, San Qi, and Huang Qi, our herbal lifesavers! 🥰🌿💕

We specifically concocted this herbal tea to keep us healthy and energized amidst the chaos.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there's a fundamental concept of enhancing the Wei Qi (Defensive Qi), intricately connected with the Lung organ system. Strengthening our lungs not only strengthens the Wei Qi but also provides a shield against exterior wind attack🍵☯️

Let's dive into the superpowers of each herb:

🌿 Feng Mi (Honey):
Moistens the Lungs, nourishes Lungs, stops cough, tonifies the middle Jiao, and relieves toxicity.

🌿 Huang Qi (Astragalus Root): Tonifies Qi, boosts blood circulation, raises Yang Qi, fortifies the Wei Qi, secures the exterior, and reduces edema. (Not recommended for early stages of sores)

✍ Quick note: If you tend to wake up often due to frequent urination at night (caused by Kidney Yin Deficiency), consider lowering the dosage of Huang Qi. It has a diuretic effect, which may exacerbate nighttime urination.

🌿 San Qi (Notoginseng Root): Stops bleeding, transforms blood stasis, reduces swelling, and alleviates pain. (Caution: Not recommended during pregnancy)


We added San Qi for its powerful antioxidant properties, which recent studies have shown can protect platelets from oxidative damage, supporting overall health and well-being 🤓💡

Sipping on this herbal tea before bed every night kept our energy levels up and our immune systems strong throughout our move.

It's been a game-changer for us! If you are curious about the recipe, check out our video here!
