Winter Season with Chinese Medicine

The Chinese believe in living in accordance with nature. Changing our living habits depending upon the season is key to good health.  In Chinese Medicine there’s a specific perspective of how to prepare and maintain good health in the winter time. The approach addresses our activities as well as our food. Winter represents strong Yin aspects which are the cold, dark, slow, inward energies. It suggests slowing down and hibernating as much as possible during the winter, thereby allowing the body to heal.
