Ginger, Ginger, Ginger!

“It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down.”

Instead of blogging this morning I have been processing raw ginger root. One kilogram of organic ginger from our local farmers markets. Peeled. Then chopped. Then whizzed into a pulp.

Trust me, that’s a lot of ginger!

I’m taking a moment, midway through, to write to you and tell you I haven’t forgotten you. I’m just in a ginger processing frenzy is all!

I have an appointment at 8am with my acupuncturist. He’s going to make a ginger boat on my lower back with some of this freshly prepared ginger, fill it with moxa (dried mugwort) and then light it up. The heat draws the warmed ginger oils deep into my back, kidneys, bowel and bladder. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) this treatment dispels cold and damp, improves circulation, and is anti-bacterial.  It feels wonderful, and that warm feeling lasts about two days.  (If you missed why I am doing this read yesterday’s post!)

It’s also grounding and nurturing. Just what I need right now.

I still have symptoms and I’m still being treated and we’re not giving up. I’m sure, one way or another, we’ll get on top of this latest hiccup too.

Thanks for all your well wishes, prayers and healing energies. Ben and I truly appreciate them.

Okay, back to chopping!
Much love, Nicole xx

Here’s a photo from a session earlier this year. So good. Can’t wait to do this again today!

  1. I have never heard of this treatment! When you say “light it up” you mean set it afire, right? It sounds a little scary to me but if you’ve done it before you must know it is safe. I hope it is very effective against this devilish infection you’ve been struggling with. I send my wishes for healing.
    Thanks for broadening my knowledge of possible healing treatments.

  5. Hi, my name is Sueniva. I have a very special favor to ask of you, I listened to your ancestor meditation. I so fell in love with it and would love the honor of sharing it with my Bodhisavatta sisters. I would gladly pay for the use of it. I would love if you had it in a written form. Love from a light being, Sueniva
