In Acupuncture theory, humans are regarded as microcosms of the natural world that surrounds them. Weather and climate of the seasons factor significantly into acupuncture diagnoses and treatment plans.
The Winter is the Water Phase of the year in Chinese Medicine. The Water phase relates to our Kidneys and Bladder. This cold, contracted and more passive time of year can be challenging for many of us and can give rise to certain signs and symptoms:
+ Have you been experiencing low back and knee pain?
+ Is your libido low?
+ Are you feeling more anxious than usual?
+ Have you been experiencing tinnitus or other ear issues?
+ Is your urination out-of-whack?
+ Have you found yourself experiencing a heightened awareness of fearful and paranoid thoughts?
All of these signs and symptoms are common during this time of year, especially for those of us with Kidney imbalances. Click here if you’d like to learn more about the Kidneys according to TCM.
