Warming up my Spleen

Per the acupucturist's directions, I have been adding warming herbs to my food.  I tend to eat a lot of raw foods all times of the year.  According to the Eastern medicine point of view, eating a lot of raw foods in the fall and winter months can strain your body.  Such was my case, and apparently I am showing signs of a damp spleen.  Yes, a damp spleen.  I have been remedying it with cinnamon, curry, ginger, garlic, cayenne, and red peppers.  Today, I balanced out my raw carrot/lemon/celery/beet juice by adding cayenne to my drink.  It was really good and had the added benefit of adding a little kick to the drink!

I've included some pictures of the foods I have added warming herbs to:
Cayenne Infused Red Root vegetable Juice (Carrot, Beet, Celery, ginger, apple, lemons)

Rosemary Curried Fingerlings

Cayenne Infused Red Root vegetable Juice (Carrot, Beet, Celery, ginger, apple, lemons)

Curried Wild Cod, Fingerling, and Avocado Salad.  Sprinkle with Udo's Oil, salt and curry powder.

Warming Spices: Ginger, Cayenne (as many IU's as you can get!) and curry powder.
