We are living in a year of heightened viral illness, and in a state where we are currently fighting wildfires and suffering from smoke inhalation. I don’t know about you, but this yells, “My lungs need lots of TLC” to me! As a Chinese medical practitioner I’m especially aware of this in the fall. Why? In Chinese medicine, each season correlates with an element, and a paired set of organs. Fall is the Metal element, and its organ systems belong to the Lung and Large Intestine.
