Yes fall is here, although it still feels balmy much of the time. In Texas winter generally comes on with a lot of vacillating weather making it difficult for our bodies to adjust, then bang – cold weather is here! Our immune and respiratory systems need to be prepared and supported during this challenging time. We are a part of nature and natural support for our bodies as fall turns to winter involves plenty of rest, good diet, nutrition and exercise to keep our blood and qi energies flowing strongly. In winter our bodies thrive on the deep rooted vegetables that grow in this season, rich warming soup broths, and plenty of healthy plant and animal protein. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers powerful support as it helps build strong immunity and reduces stress that can come with the winter season. Acupuncture, herbs and nutritional supplements keep our lungs and digestive system in balance in the winter. This balance is essential for our immune systems to function optimally. In addition, Traditional Chinese Medicine offers strong herbal and nutritional support for healing if a virus does come your way.
