New Idea



DR ABBIE CLOHERTY, AN EXPERT IN COSMETIC ACUPUNCTUR­E, TRAINED IN CHINESE MEDICINE, FOUNDER OF THE ZHONG CENTRE IN MELBOURNE “According to Chinese Medicine the ‘stomach system’ and digestion energy is like a soup; so anything that we put in our mouth that then requires heating up or breaking down makes us tired, as the body is using energy to warm and digest foods instead of repairing our body and helping with clear thinking. A general rule of thumb is not to ingest anything that is cooler than your body temperatur­e. Easy to digest foods like tea and bone broth give more qi (energy) and vitality for the rest of your body and brain.”
