Tips for Winter: Warm it up!

It is very important during this time of year to keep your body physically warm, with special attention to the head, neck and kidneys. Body heat is lost by exposed surface area, and the head tends to be exposed more often as folks forget to wear hats or hoods.  So don’t go outside or go to sleep with wet hair, and don’t forget your hat!

Your kidneys are hard at work cleaning and circulating your blood, and this circulation is imperative to keeping your body warm.  So help out those little kidneys by keeping them warm and active!  Kidneys are located at your lower back so a simple remedy to remember is to tuck in your shirt to avoid allowing cold air to travel up your back, while more active kidney support can be done by rubbing your lower back to warm it up, and to keep your kidneys active by drinking plenty of hot water and tea.
