Blue Bottle Coffee - How awesome is it?!!!

I read a lot of positive reviews and decided it was time to try Blue Bottle Coffee. 

First time I stopped by, I got a latte. It was after taste whatsoever. And the best part I didn't need sugar. It was that awesome! If you ever in Rockefeller Center, you must try it! It's not easy to find, so you might just want to ask once you go downstairs to the ice skating ring area.

I wasn't crazy about the service, but the young man knew how to make a great latte. They don't ask your name.  I was just standing there and he placed few lattes on the counter that people immediately grabbed. It was very confusing. 

I have to say that latte was small and pricey. In my opinion, it is still worth trying. You have to taste it at least once. I was done with it by the time I found an exit. I definitely wanted more. 

Second time I stopped by, I tried their coffee blend. All the coffee is made fresh in front of you using the pour over method. I asked the server for recommendation. I wanted something less strong that day. She told me that single origin was milder, but if I add milk, I need to get the blend. I got the blend and let me tell you, that coffee will wake you up and make you jump up and down for a few hours! It was strongest coffee I ever had. It tasted good with no aftertaste, but I wouldn't recommend it late in a day. You are not getting any sleep after that cup!

Third time I went back for Latte. It was a hot day and I added a drop of milk. I am sorry to say it wasn't as good as the first time, but it could have been the extra milk. So if you get a Latte, don't add anything to it!

I read somewhere that the coffee is organic, but I couldn't find proof anywhere and the website doesn't say anything.

I wish they had the sitting area. It's standing room only.

Acupressure Points on your Feet for Headaches and Migraines

by Holly Tse, CMP at www.chinesefootreflexology.comIf you get headaches or migraines, here are four acupressure and Chinese Reflexology points that can help you feel better right away.  Learn how to rub your feet for fast pain relief and for long-term improvement of your symptoms. Let’s face it, headaches suck! While I often write eloquently (or so I think!), there’s no other way to describe the stabbing pain that shoots up through your eye, the vise-like grip that radiates from your head to your shoulders or the incessant throbbing that leaves you feeling cranky, crabby and foggy.

If it sounds like I've experienced some killer headaches, your assumption is 100% correct. I've had stabbing migraines, headaches that follow you to sleep and greet you on waking, dull achy head pain, and ocular migraines too.  Fortunately, I learned how to bring my body into balance so that I now can’t even remember when I last had a headache. Here are some good books on Reflexology

The Key to Longevity

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are considered the “Root of Life” and when Chinese Medicine refers to an organ, it’s not just the physical organs themselves, but the entire Kidney meridian or energy channel. Think of your Kidney channel as the mega-bank for your life savings.  In this case, your life savings are your life force or Chi (Qi).

When you’re born, your parents make a deposit into your energy savings accountbased on how much energy they have to give.  If your parents are healthy and full of life, you’ll get a bigger deposit than someone whose parents are sickly or lacking in spirit.

As you live your life, you either make depo…

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.

Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.

The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…
