Welcome to Autumn

Welcome to Autumn!! Autumn, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is ruled by the “metal” element, characterised by contraction and transformation on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

Autumn brings with it a desire to know who we are and to find value and meaning in what we do. The emotions associated with the metal element are grief, sadness, reflection and “letting go” like the trees letting go of their leaves.
 
Autumn is associated health problems in the lungs (e.g. allergies and asthma), and with the large intestines as well as skin disorders (e.g. eczema and psoriasis) and poor immunity. 
We suggest eating healthy seasonal foods and being aware of the nature of autumn.
 
A few considerations to ensure good health through autumn and into winter include:
  • Eat Homemade Soup: Soups are nourishing and warming and can be packed full of meat, vegetables and nutrients.
  • Eat Fermented foods: eg. sauerkraut, kim chi, miso, kombucha, rejuvelac, fermented soda, yogurt, or kefir. Fermented foods support your immune function. Supplement with probiotics such as acidophilus.
  • Get enough sleep: Sleep is regenerative and keeps the immune system strong.
  • Exercise: Keep the lungs strong and mood stable by exercising during Autumn.
  • Manage stress: through meditation, qi gong, art or music, laughter, taking up a hobby, enjoying time with friends and family, and gardening… just a few suggestions to manage stress which can deplete our immune system.
  • Letting go activities: have a clean out physically and mentally. Get rid of things you no longer need - the element of Metal relates to organisation, order and stability. It can be a great time to go through your home or work space and clear out what’s of no use to you and re-organize. Let go of emotional factors associated with the metal element – be in touch with issues of grief and sadness so that you may process them and let them go.
