All the leaves on the ground remind me that from a Chinese medicine point of view, autumn is a time for letting go, much as the leaves drop off from the trees in preparation for winter. Autumn's associated organs (in the Chinese medicine sense) are the Lungs and Large Intestine. If the Lungs are healthy, they ward off infections such as colds and influenza and ensure that your immune system is in good shape. On the other hand, the Large Intestine is responsible for eliminating waste from the body. Problems in this area might be constipation, loose bowels or abdominal pain.
If you often have chest complaints such as coughs or asthma, seem to catch colds easily, or experience bowel problems or abdominal discomfort, then you might have an imbalance in the Lungs or Large Intestine organs. Don't suffer in silence. Call me for a chat to see how acupuncture can help.
