Chinese Medicine Healthy Tips

Outdoors Tip #1

It’s getting hot out. A really delicious way to prevent overheating is to eat watermelon. The green part in between the peel and the fruit is especially effective. It is also a tasty treat for kids at sports events where overheating will be more likely.

Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate. It has the same electrolyte balance as our blood plasma, and is nature’s pedialyte and Gatorade (without the artificial colors and extra additives).

Fun fact: The Chinese name for watermelon is Xi Gua (xi gua pi-watermelon peel/rind) and is indicated in Chinese Medicine for clearing summer heat and relieving thirst:)
