The number 1 soup during winter


Ok, so there wasn’t a Eurovision soup contest recently, but if there was, surely Miso Soup would be number 1.

If you have been in for an appointment recently, you have probably already heard me preaching about the benefits of adding Miso soup to your winter menu, but if not, lend me your ears as I spread the good word of Miso.

Miso soup is the small soup that often comes as a free accompaniment when you order a Japanese meal.  It can be eaten/drank for breakfast, lunch and dinner or as a replacement for snacks, tea or coffee.  It is a savory soup made from fermented soybeans, that usually also contains tofu, seaweed and onion, but it is versatile enough to add seasonal vegetables or meat.

Why is it so great for me though? Good lead in question…

Why Pagoda loves your Thyroid

Our Acupuncturist, Mitch Holland has dropped in to share his knowledge on your thyroid – what it does, why you need it to be in optimum working order and best of all, how you can use diet and lifestyle to steer it in the direction of health.  We see so  many patients who’s hormones are imbalanced, stemming back to poor thyroid function.  We love helping people return to health here at The Pagoda Tree.  To learn more, read on.

Thyroid health is imperative to systemic wellbeing. The thyroid hormones secreted into the bloodstream play key roles in cellular protein synthesis – specifically the DNA structure and reproduction in our cells. These little hormones are called T4 (thyroxine) and T3 (triiodothyronine), but that’s not all they do. As well as governing our cells health they also transport electolytes, regulate cardiac and muscle activity, improve metabolism, assist mental processes, balance libido and help regulate menstrual cycles. These are some of the bodies most prominent functions and when they are inflamed or underactive we notice them – and now know to look to the thyroid.
