Questions & Answers

Grace Jin Kim, L. Ac, MSTOM Answers
According to Chinese Medicine, there is an organ clock that is associated with each organ system and a two hour slot for all 12 systems. The classics recommend during the time of the Large Intestine, between 5 and 7am, is the best time to drink warm water to flush out the system as well as engaging in movement to help stimulate the bowels. The best time to eat is during the time of the stomach, from 7am-9am. Try to refrain from cold foods, as they are contracting in nature and doesn't set up your digestion for it's optimum efficiency. I personally enjoy waking up and getting in a mug of hot lemon water with some apple cider vinegar and local honey. Then add in some light stretching/yoga and sitting in breathing or meditation on an empty stomach to start my day. Then I go for a protein rich breakfast with a variety of color and then if I feel up for it, a cup of organic, low-acid coffee. I find if I drink coffee first thing, it's too strong for my system to handle and I get the jitters. If I feel really fancy, then I will blend the coffee with ghee, coconut oil and cinnamon. I think the most important thing you can do is set a regular rhythm for yourself. And keep it a ritual in your life. I have a toddler, so a lot of these ideals get thrown out the window. BUT I know that I can rely at least on some hot lemon water and ideally connecting that one ritual with something productive everyday; such as writing down a list of the top priorities of my day that I commit to getting done no matter what. My TaiChi instructor today put his two cents in that's related to this question, he wishes everyone to be able to sit for a minute, whether it's closing your eyes and breathing or a full on meditation, the intention here is to shut out the mind, even for one minute. Then taking another minute after that and focusing on the positive things in your life. Hope that helps <3
