While these articles linked above confirm the environment-body-health-disease connection, and all through scientific study, they often do not paint the whole picture.
Even though they can tell you HOW it often works, they never ever can truly tell you WHY it works this way. Chinese Medicine has been in search of unveiling the ultimate question…
Why do you have “x” problem, and the person sitting next to you does not, and vice versa.
Even people with the same diagnosed disease have different experiences. If the disease is truly “the same”, then how can it be that people experience it differently? Perhaps, because, it really is not the same at all.
Do You Want To Know Why?
Despite the fact that Chinese Medicine has recognized the environment-body-health-disease connection for eons, this key principle is something that has yet to be acknowledged in Western/Allopathic Medicine. For this reason, most people do not understand the complexities behind this phenomena.
Perhaps a new perspective could illuminate this important connection between the weather, seasonal changes and health issues? Let’s dive in!
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) dictates each season has specific attributes which are then classified into different patterns that directly affect your body and health issues. What makes this interesting is that through the knowledge of the different seasonal pattern classifications, you can begin to understand how any season can relate to you on a personal level!
This knowledge can then help you understand how you can affect your health on a positive level! With the proper Chinese Herbal formulas, diet and lifestyle changes, your health can be optimized! This perspective enables us a keen insight into many health questions and provides the appropriate, correct answers.
Questions related to timing such as:
All of these questions can be answered (not to mention solved) by understanding how your body is integrally connected to the earth and it’s environmental processes. Truly, we are a microcosm of this beautiful planet that we all live on.
Let’s take a look at the season of Spring from a TCM point of view.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has connected Spring to your Liver Organ System as it corresponds to:
Chinese Medicine states that the idea of a motivated person works hand-in-hand with a healthy flowing Liver Organ System. This goes along with dreaming while sleeping, or the blockage thereof.
Chronological problems [a great example would be with menstrual disorders with irregular timing] would definitely apply here. Also Chinese Medicine Patterns associated with Wind (irregularity) can fall under this season/organ system:
There are varying Chinese Herbal Formulas that can help work on these Chinese Medicine Patterns both directly and indirectly. For instance, our Water of Life Kidney Yin Formula is excellent to nourish, ground and nurture your Liver Organ System. It also calms and balances a Heart Fire Chinese Medicine Pattern. The next section will go further into this concept which is a great way to understand the TCM Five Element Theory described in this article.
During the winter season, which is directly associated with your Kidney Organ System, is a great time to replenish your Yin which will directly help support your Liver Organ System.
Referring to the Five Element Theory, your Kidney Organ System is the mother of your Liver Organ System. What this simply means is that there is a pronounced interconnection happening with all of your internal organ systems. It would only make sense that any depleted Organ System(s) will have an affect on another.
This interrelationship is the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With this understanding in mind, you may need to work on the Liver Organ System directly or on its mother…the Kidney Organ System…or both, simultaneously. To better understand if you have Kidney, Liver or both Organ System Daily Disharmonies please see the listings below.
