Fall is a time of Change, letting go of one season, as we move into another. But in Chinese medicine, there are two organs associated with this time the lungs, and large intestines. The feelings they correspond to this time are grief, letting go, sadness, and regret.
Many years ago I worked in a synagogue as a back office person for the summer/fall season, during the fall and it was a crazy time, lots of set ups and special events, super busy, because there were a lot of funeral preparations! Those who’d been there for years said oh yes it’s the same every year. Corresponds directly to what Chinese Medicine says, and death is the ultimate in letting go. Daily, we let go more subtly.
What do your organs have to tell you? With too much stress, antibiotics, or poor gut assimilation, your organs experience imbalances. This is my most challenged time of the year. Because of this, I am particularly passionate about the virtues of finding balance during the fall. Like what you are reading? Join my newsletter, and get my FREE 3 DAY MINI DETOX
In case you aren’t aware of signs you may be struggling too~
Do you have:
- Persistent colds
- Poor circulation
- Varicose veins
- Excessive heat in your body, often resulting in poor digestion
- Skin issues
- Night sweats
- Sinus infections
Your LUNGS are responsible for Every function of your body, including your metabolism, digestion and your endocrine system depend on the health of your lungs! Strong lungs are vital for good health and high energy. When your lungs are weak and not able to get good quality air into our body, your health suffers.
How about the symptoms that come from having unhealthy large intestines?
- Acid reflux
- Congestion or an excess of mucous in the body (especially if you see mucous in your stool)
- Gurgling in the stomach
- Poor assimilation of food
- Pathogenic imbalances that can lead to weight gain
LARGE INTESTINE. The large intestine works to excrete waste from the body. We often overlook the large intestine when we think of digestion, detox and weight loss, but its proper function is important for good health.
The large intestine:
- Manufactures 95% of the body’s serotonin, which corresponds to our brain cells, no wonder they call the gut our second brain.
- Is vital for immune health
