IF YOUR NOSE HAS A RED TIP, YOU COULD BE STRESSED

Fairlady - - FACE IT! -

The Chi­nese the­ory of the Five El­e­ments holds that health prob­lems clearly man­i­fest in changes on the face. ‘A red tip at the end of the nose in­di­cates an ex­cess of fire chi [life force], which is linked to high lev­els of stress or anx­i­ety and a ten­dency to have high blood pres­sure,’ says psy­cho­so­matic ther­a­pist Kelly San­ders. If you reg­u­larly suf­fer from stress and a red nose, get your blood pres­sure checked. ‘As well as try­ing to re­duce stress, aim to min­imise sugar, spices, cof­fee, al­co­hol and fried foods, and in­tro­duce more whole­grains, vegeta­bles and pulses to help balance the ex­cess fire chi.’
