Morning Rituals for Holistic Health

To be diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is a devastating experience. No matter what, life has to go on, especially you need holistic living to ensure that the disease symptoms may not get worse.

Life is made up of cycles of changes that initiate natural health and healing. Think of your natural health in terms of cycles, not just isolated points. It is, therefore, important that daily morning routines will contribute to physiological rhythms that are harmonious with the cycles and rhythms of Nature for holistic health and wellness. This harmony is instrumental in helping you cope with autoimmune disease symptoms that cannot be alleviated by medications.

One of the most important daily morning routines for holistic health is to go to bed early and rise early. This is the key to getting a good and restful sleep without medications. Even on weekends, try not to disrupt this rhythm of your biological clock. Get yourself attuned with Nature for holistic wellness of the body, the mind, and the spirit.

Before you get up, stretch yourself in bed, and make a smooth transition from sleep to wakefulness. Research studies have shown that most heart attacks occur in the morning due to the sudden changes from sleep to wakefulness. Follow the ancient Chinese way of waking up:
  • Use your fingertips to massage your ears, eyes, lips, and nose.
  • Gently tap your scalp with your hands.
  • With a continual stroking action, massage your shoulders, elbows, hands, chest, abdomen, knees and feet.
  • With your palms, massage your lower back.
  • Then inhale vigorously through your nose, and exhale forcefully through your mouth several times in order to rid your body of toxins that may have accumulated during your sleep.
The above is what the ancient Taoist monks in China would do before they got up every morning to have a clear mind and healthy body. They practiced these daily routines for holistic health of the body, the mind, and the spirit

Exercise—if your daily exercise regimen is in the morning. Yoga health is an excellent daily routine for holistic health and self-healing through the mind and the body.

Take your morning shower. Brush your skin with a soft-bristle brush to rid your skin of dead cells.

For holistic health, clean your mouth this way for better oral health:
  • To remove a film of impurities from your tongue, gargle a tablespoonful of warm sesame oil for a minute or two; spit out the oil.
  • Use a tongue scraper to scrape your tongue until all the white coating is gone.
  • Gently massage your gums with your fingers.
  • Brush your teeth.
The use of warm sesame oil for oral hygiene, instead of the harsh commercial mouthwash, helps purify your colon as well as improve your digestion. Sesame oil is especially good for removing harmful bacteria from your mouth and preventing gum disease. The commercial products contain chemicals and are often too harsh for oral hygiene. Research studies have shown that swishing and gargling oil is best for gum disease and cavity for optimum oral health. In addition, sesame oil has the benefits of strengthening your jaws, preventing cracked lips and sore throat.
