What I've been reading, writing, thinking about and indulging in this week.
Beardly biome brings health benefits: Beards are full of bacteria - but it turns out that's a good thing! Symbiotic bacteria that live in facial hair seem to confer protective benefits - huzzah! (keep your biome happy with A&P beard oil, on sale for 20% off)
Darkness turning into golden light: Denise of Cicuto Acupuncture shares some of the deep wisdom of Chinese medicine on wintertime - including some harmonizing practices to keep you in sync with the deepest dark that germinates the seed.
Love is the best medicine: The health benefits of relationships and social connection are increasingly being recognized - and a massive study review provides more evidence. I'm working on a super secret collaboration all about LOVE right now - stay tuned for news in a few days!
Denise and I are now sharing our semi-monthly periscope and interesting and inspiring holistic health information through our new show, TCM Talk! See all our broadcasts and links to information on Pinterest, and follow us on Periscope, Twitter and Facebook!
Have a great weekend!
