Feng Shui – An Introduction - May 2012
Feng Shui has been in practice in China for over five thousand years.
The knowledge was handed down through generations of Feng Shui Masters. Originally, the Feng Shui Masters were retained exclusively for the Emperors, the rich and ruling classes. The knowledge was made public by a book written by Master Jiang during the Qing Dynasty.
Therefore, for the past 600 years until today, the common people has also enjoyed the benefits of good Feng Shui. Feng Shui is all about the balance of Yin and Yang, and Wuxing - the different phases of the Five Elements - Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal, which all originated from the teachings of the Yijing (I Ching). The study of Feng Shui is to examine our environment – our living and working spaces, so that we can improve on our Earth Luck - by tapping into various types of Qi (Chi), in accordance with our own personal Qi.
When we are productive in what we do, we can generate Wealth - in both the physical and spiritual sense, which can also result in good Health - in love, relationship and demeanour. Each month, we will be looking at ways you can introduce Feng Shui into your life.

|Fresh Cherry Crisp|
Description: What says summer more than cherries?
This is a delicious cherry crisp made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product.
The nutritional benefits of cherries are pretty big, particularly when you consider their small size. Many of the health benefits of cherries are related to the natural chemical that gives them their color.
Anthocyanins give flowers, berries and other fruits the colors ranging from red to blue. Some of the best food sources of anthocyanins are red grapes, chokeberry, eggplant and, of course, cherries.
These pigments attract pollinators, act as a “sunscreen” and protect the plant from radicals formed by UV light, so they act as antioxidants. The antioxidant benefits are transferred to people when the fruits or vegetables are eaten.
Anthocyanins are also natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. They inhibit the production of COX-2 enzymes, as do over the counter and prescription pain relievers. Natural anti-inflammatories are believed to reduce the risk of many types of cancer. But, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.
Cherries contain melatonin, another natural pain reliever and COX-2 inhibitor. Melatonin also helps to regulate sleep cycles and has been sold as a natural sleep aid. Reduced levels of melatonin have been associated with heart disease and increased cancer rates in night workers. The human body naturally produces melatonin, but primarily in darkness.
Constant artificial lighting present in most homes and work places reduces the amount of melatonin that the body produces. So, one of the health benefits of cherries to modern day man has to do with replacing some of the melatonin that has been lost to artificial light, unhealthy work schedules and unnatural sleep patterns. And, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.
Cherries, like most fruits, contain vitamin C. The proven and suspected health benefits of cherries and other vitamin C rich foods are too numerous to be covered in this recipe.
