Like everything in the universe the seasons change. When our beautiful planet moves through it’s orbit around the sun the tilt of it’s axis causes a situation that leads to very noticeable changes down here on the surface. For you and I that means our activities are changing as well as the make up of our bodies. According to ancient Chinese medicine our bodies are beginning to sprout out of the water body into the wood body. So, what the heck does that mean?
It means the living energy in your body is migrating away from the kidney and bladder and reinforcing the organs of the Gall Bladder and Liver. If your body is healthy and balanced this change will occur without you even noticing it. But, if you already have an imbalance, or your lifestyle puts particular stress on the organs of power for the season it is very likely you will experience some discomfort.
I have already seen this in the clinic with a large upswing of Gall Bladder attacks. If you are experiencing pain in the right abdomen or the middle of your back that you cannot explain why, you are probably dealing with these changes.
So what does all this mean to you? By understanding this you can take some proactive measures to help the body through this transformation.
Some of the signs that you are dealing with this imbalance include:
Headaches and migraines
Disorders of the genitalia: male impotence, itching female genitalia, “reproductive processes”, irregular or painful menstruation,
General pains and stiffness in the muscles and tendons
Fibromyalgia (= liver disorder)
Eye problems such as sensitivity towards light or wind.
In Chinese medicine you do not separate the body from the emotions, in fact the emotion of influence during the spring is anger and Patience.
Ill organs: Anger, irritation, impatience, aggression.
State of symptoms: Disconnected, flighty
Activity to avoid: Straining the eyes
Body motion: Clenched fists
Body fluids: Tears
If you are dealing with any of these issues, it may be a good time to stop by the clinic for a seasonal tune up. Wellness treatment on a seasonal frequency is beneficial for everyone.
