Gemini rules the body’s pairs – including the lungs – and the nerves, which means that ailments and illnesses are frequently connected to it.
For trapped nerves, arthritis, frozen shoulders: add cinnamon twigs to food or drink cinnamon tea. If worse in the heat or hot to touch, drink tea made from bamboo leaves.
For bronchitis: as well as taking antibiotics, drink a mixture of fresh pear, fresh water chestnuts, fresh lotus root and fresh lily root.
For insomnia (due to nerves): tea made from equal amounts of lotus seed (cooked first), and fresh liquorice.
