🔥Summer in TCM🔥

🔥Summer in Chinese medicine relates to Fire element, it is the season of yang, which means that it is a time of heat, outgoingness, and moving outward in nature and in our lives. Top priority should be given to the heart, mind, and spirit for staying healthy in summer.

🔥In Chinese medicine, mental activity is associated with the heart, and therefore, our memory, thought processes, emotional well-being, and consciousness are also attributed to the heart and fire element. This is a time to nourish and pacify our spirits and to realize our life’s greatest potential as we find joy in our hot summer days and warm summer nights.

🔥When the fire element is balanced, the heart is strong and healthy, the mind is calm, and sleep is sound. Indicators of an imbalance in the fire element include anxiety, agitation, nervousness, depression, heartburn, and insomnia.
