Nausea and Morning Sickness

A simple way to treat nausea is to put a slice of raw ginger in the mouth and suck it untill you feel better. If your child feels motion sickness you can press on the point between his or her eyebrows. This is the point Yintang, a well known calming point in the Chinese medicine, which the yogis call the "third eye".

Are your Arms Numb?

Do you have circulation problems, or a pinched nerve in the neck? Tight muscles in the neck and shoulder? How is your posture while working on the computer? Is it one-sided?

As there are many causes for the numbness and aching of the arms, you should first try to find out its origin. But it is always beneficial to massage both arms from tips of the fingers to shoulders as often as possible.  You can also treat your numb arms with your own fingertips.

Here is what to do. Press the following points several times a day. Hold the pressure on each point for about a minute.  

Press the outer portion of the chest muscle firmly with your fingers until you find two sensitive points below the end of your collarbone. Press both points simultaneously with your middle and forefingers.
