Taking Chinese Herbs Everyday
Ⅲ: Taking Chinese Herbs Seasonally
Another great way to take Chinese Herbal Formulas is based on the yearly seasons. That would be Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Fall & Winter.
Wait a minute, did I just add a 5th season in there?
I certainly did.
Chinese Medicine recognizes the transitional time between Summer and Fall as Late Summer.
Late Summer has a character of its own in how it effects your body. It is the time of harvest and when intense Fire related health issues occur.
Much in the way your body follows the natural processes throughout the day or night, it also follows the natural processes through out the yearly seasons, and it is wise to nurture this process.
