Today’s message will share a health secret and today’s tip is eat a watermelon. Now in the spring. Andean (and other) healing traditions view the body as having several elements including water, fire and air. Imbalances of these elements reduces energy, vitality, even leads to illness. The seasons too contain elements of fire, water and air. Water is predominant in spring, fire in summer and air in autumn-winter. Our bodies tend to accumulate these predominances during the season. In winter we have air imbalances (leading to dry throat call colds). In spring we pick up too much water (runny noses we identify as allergies, etc.). So at the beginning of each new season it’s a great idea to clean the system out.
Watermelon is a cleanser. Eat a whole, big one if you can. This works in the spring and summer when the flushing action removes excessive fire, water and air. The melon must be fresh, cut within 20 minutes. Watermelon is a sponge that absorbs and flushes free radicals from the system. If you let the melon sit after cutting, it oxidizes and loses its cleansing capacity.
Sound crazy? I thought so but tried it after watching a Shaman prescribe it for a woman suffering a severe rash (a summer fire imbalance). I felt so good, I make this a regular habit each spring and summer. Here is a book on the subject of seasonal eating, written by a friend that I believe you will enjoy.
