Summer is officially here! It's time to welcome in cooling nourishment into your life to stay cool, just like a cucumber ;)
The body is always working to keep the internal body temperature at around 97-99 degrees F. The body has a natural ability to adjust itself to any given environment to maintain balance. Some people adjust easily to temperature changes while others can experience symptoms of over heating. It all depends upon the person's current state of health and how "hard" the body needs to work to reach balance. If the body is fed acidic food, is being pushed to it's limit daily, and inflammation is present within the body, it will not be as easy for the body to adjust to higher temperature change.
Symptoms and Signs of Excess Fire Within:
-redness in eyes
-inflammation (swollen muscles, red pimples, rashes)
The breath is the bridge between the body and the mind. If you notice you've been thinking too much chances are you may not be breathing...

I'm talking about breath! it's our first food, but not our only food, of course...
96.2% of our body mass is gas. Gas is electricity. Breath is electricity. We breathe in and out oxygen and carbon dioxide.

Only 3.9% of our body mass is comprised by the food we eat (minerals, vitamins, fiber).
Most of our food is made up of gas too...proteins (amino acids) are composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen. Essential Fatty Acids are composed of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen. Sugar(glucose) is composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
