In TCM the Lungs and Large Intestine are associated with Autumn, they are the yin & yang pairs responsible for taking in the new and letting go of the old. This time of the year is important to take care of the Lung system to avoid colds, flu and allergies especially since it has direct access to the external environment.
In #TCMnutrition, the food flavour, temperature and colour have healing properties for the body. Eating too much excess cold and raw food creates dampness or phlegm that can result in stagnation and blockages leading to imbalance.
🍁Eat less cold and uncooked foods. That means switching to warmer drinks, soups, stews and steamed vegetables.
