Recently, my sister went to north of China, Yan Ji, where the Chang Bai Mountain is. Before she went, she gave me the Changbai Ginseng, so I steamed it with a pigeon. The soup tasted awesome. The red roots stuff is the ginseng.
Today, my mom has teeth inflammation, so I find out my stock of dandelion roots. It is very very cheap, from Chang Bai mountain.
From such a good environment, the dandelion root is good as natural antibiotic. I told my mom stop doing the antibiotics intravenous injection. I feel sorry for her getting old and get body weak. Today in China, elderly people are really suffering from blood high pressure and diabetes. My grandpa lived to the age of 95. He has hypoglycemia. Before 90, he was very strong and flexible in body.
Finally, we all need to take care of our body. Our flesh gets breakdown easily and slowly worked out. you. A good diet, exercise, and good environment and relationships are very important for us!
I just think the place where we can nurture ourselves is good to know. And we usually pray for our health as we love ourselves. I pray to those mountains and florals which gives a connection to the goodness. Traditional cooking method is also a way of connection to the good old life. And learning to be relaxing with our open mind and be alert to what is happening around us is good for our brain.
I looked out at the sky, dim light and hazel colored clouds. And I looked down to the river, tree and people from my high rise flat, I feel it is a warm winter and some places alike Australia and New Zealand (now summer) get really glazed with over-heat.
I wish we get our body get well adjusted to changes. I told my sister she shall try some wood frog’s fallopian tube or Hasma. Those wood frog loves in the creek under the snow in Chang Bai Mountain. It is a precious nutritional food for Chinese. She said she did try some. I also ask her to use velvet which is also very good for woman. She said she is trying to get used to the new environment because her body can not acclimate to the new place, then she can get the nutrients stuff into the body. The northern home always has heaters inside, so it gets too dry in air for southern Chinese coming to visit there.
Anyway, I wish her have a good Chinese lunar new year there.
