Chinese Medicine for the Fall Season

Food for the Fall Season

In the Fall season, leaves change color and fall, seeds dry up, and the sap of trees goes into their roots. This is a time of harvest, a time to start organizing the scattered patterns of the previous warmer seasons to gather – food, energy and protection — for storage ahead of the approaching winter.

In Chinese Medicine, the Fall Season represents the energy of the Lungs and the Colon. This is a time when imbalances related to these organs appear or worsen. They include:

• Allergies
• Asthma
• Respiratory conditions
• Colds
• Sadness and Grief
• Skin problems
• Constipation
• Dry skin and wrinkles
