Seasonal Transition from Summer to Autumn

Seasonal Transition from Summer to Autumn

With autumn approaching and the beginning of the yin cycle, the energy of plants is moving down into their roots through this seasonal transition, helping the body become aware of the energy pattern of the season. This season is a time for the body to begin gathering energy for the colder months to come.

The lungs and large intestine are the organs associated with fall. The lungs are responsible for the circulation of Qi (the body’s natural flow and circulation), and are also very susceptible to cold and illness. For this reason, it is important to stay healthy and warm during the season. If the Qi circulation is weakened, muscles will not be able to warm the body properly.

Autumn Foods:
Vegetables of autumn like carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach...

Ice Delays Healing

In my training under the scope of Traditional Chinese Medicine and all the classical teachings of this holistic medicine the use of ice is not typically mentioned as a therapy for injuries. Ice delays healing. Heat, in contrast, is often used to increase blood flow and relax tissue but not ice. It is generally accepted that ice is for acute injuries and heat is for chronic conditions but there’s more to understand.

Consider the obvious, cold contracts and blocks circulation. Long term constriction can cut off blood supply, impede healing and damage tissue.

When there is an injury, i.e. acute sprained, swollen ankle injury or a snake bit – swelling is a natural part of healing. The swelling contains and isolates the injury initially. But for better, long-term recovery blood needs to flow...

Temporo-mandibular joint pain, commonly known as TMJ, affects over 10 million Americans and can involve jaw muscle stiffness, difficulty chewing and painful popping or clicking, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
