Lunar Cycles and Your Health

Lunar Cycles and Your Health
It's a fast-paced world we live in, and we often sacrifice our health for more ambitious agendas. However, when we lose the ability to take care of ourselves, we become less effective overall. So, let lunar cycles guide you in living a healthier life -- after all, that beautiful orb in the night sky is also known as the Great Nurturer!

New Moon: Break habits.
Based on the cycle of the Moon, it's been said it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. If you can make it to the last quarter of the lunar cycle, this is an ideal time to turn new corners in attitude and consciousness.

Waxing Moon: Focus on good nutrition and rest.

During the waxing Moon (new to full), the body rebuilds. The cost for not taking care of ourselves during this phase is high, as we make ourselves especially vulnerable to illness. Rest more, and if possible, put off major chores until the waning Moon phase when -- you'll be delighted to hear -- your home will remain cleaner longer!

Full Moon: Avoid surgery in the days before or on the full Moon.
Try booking any medical operations at times other than the full Moon. Why? Surface fluid tension tends to be greater during a full Moon -- oceans are at a higher level, plants retain more water, and humans have more blood, making for a higher likelihood of risky bleeding. Futhermore, complications are more prevalent, infection rates are higher, and recovery often takes longer during a full Moon. If at all possible, schedule any surgical procedures for the waning Moon phase.

Waning Moon: Exercise, detoxify, and follow your urge to be more active.
The body releases toxins during the Moon's waning phase, so be sure to drink lots of water and detoxify your body as much as possible during this time. We tend to burn more calories during this Moon phase as well, so if you're tempted to eat more, you'll be happy to find that you likely won't put on much (if any) extra weight!
