Gwyneth Paltrow introduces Adele in the GOOP Newsletter

“One day, when being treated by an acupuncturist, a Spanish friend who was visiting me in London walked into the room and remarked that I looked like a bull who’d had a run in with the picadores (the dudes on horseback who stick the bull with many little knives to rile him up before the actual fight). I assured her that although I was stuck with needles, I was faring far better than the bull would in the analogous scenario. In fact, those many little needles have helped me through many an ailment. Eastern medicine has a different approach than Western medicine – it’s more holistic. The root of the problem is addressed, as opposed to a symptom being attended to with prescription medication, only to return. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful as hell for a round of antibiotics or surgery when necessary, but I have been helped tremendously by all of the practices below that help the body heal itself. When implemented by a professional with experience, the benefits can work wonders.”To read the entire newsletter, click here.

Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Chinese Detox

It seems allergy season has hit Gwyneth hard. She writes in her latest GOOP newsletter:

This week, Adele Reising shares thoughts on spring from a Chinese medical perspective and provides tips for those of us who are suffering from allergies.

Love, Gwyneth

Here are a few of Adele’s tips for starting spring detoxed and full of energy:

  • Try getting up just before dawn, when the black night sky slowly turns to blue. The sun rises in the East, and the blue color of dawn opens to our eyes and we experience the new day. Spring is like this.
  • If you are an allergy sufferer, I recommend avoiding mucus producing foods, such as dairy, wheat, sugar, and cold raw foods and also taking a probiotic.
  • Go to my website and check out the yeast free diet. If you follow it for about 6 weeks, you will lose a little unwanted winter weight, avoid the misery of allergy season and also detox naturally and be ready to bloom in the summer months. This diet cleans out the lymphatic system and calms down the immune system naturally.Licorice and mung bean do detox well, especially the mung bean, which is used to purge toxins in liver. Doing this kind of simple detox several times a week, one’s immune system will become much stronger and in so doing prevent one from getting the spring cold.

My New York: Stacey Bendet

Stacey was featured in the NY Post recently, and mentioned a few of her favorite things in New York City. I am honored to be one of them. Thank you, Stacey!

Stacey says: Adele is amazing. I found her through my yoga teacher. She’s been my savior during pregnancy for every ache and pain. Acupuncture realigns everything, like if you’re sick or jet-lagged.

Adele Writes about Springtime in GOOP

From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Newsletter GOOP:”From Our Resident Chinese Medicine Expert, Adele Reising:

This is part II in a series of living according to the seasons, which is an ancient Chinese principle for good health. Our lifestyle, activities and eating habits should naturally reflect the energies of each season. We have already discussed Winter, in the Chinese New Year newsletter, and now we come to Spring. Spring is a time of renewal and growth. In the winter months we talked about storage and hibernation, a time to recharge the batteries. Now that spring is upon us, it is time to begin stretching out and becoming more active again, and renewing ourselves.”To read the whole newsletter, click here.

Adele Writes about Wintertime in GOOP

From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Newsletter GOOP (Part I of Living by the Seasons):”Chinese New Year, Year of the TigerFebruary 14th marks the beginning of the New Year in the Chinese lunar calendar. This is the year of the Tiger. The Chinese ancient pictograph for the tiger is of a crouching tiger, which is a fitting emblem for the New Year. The pictograph depicts a tiger crouching down with his head turned to the side, he is quiet, waiting in peaceful repose. We don’t often think of tigers in their resting state, but all cats know when to pounce and when to be still, and winter is a time to be still.To read the whole newsletter, click here.
