Mid-Spring: Observations and Insights

A camellia falls / spilling out / yesterday’s rain
~ Moritake

You may have been noticing for a while that the calendar is becoming less reliable as an indicator of what’s happening with seasonal energy. For example, while the calendar tells us it’s mid-Spring in the northern hemisphere, the feeling of Summer is coming on strong.

Putting that awareness aside for a moment, I want to share with you what I’ve been observing as we find ourselves at the peak of Spring energy.

Liver/Gallbladder and Lungs at Mid-Spring

People who have a balanced Liver/Gallbladder have lots of energy at mid-Spring, a time when the ‘get-up-and-go’ energy is in the air and pulsing through our bodies.

If the Liver/Gallbladder needs a ‘tune-up,’ you may be feeling a lack of energy—like a car with spark plugs that can’t get things moving.

On top of Liver/Gallbladder symptoms, many of us are having Lung issues like hay fever, allergies, and dry skin because the Lungs are low in energy now.

Oriental Medicine can help relieve symptoms by balancing your energy so you can start feeling better now. And now is the time to build-up the Heart/Kidneys in preparation for the health challenges a body experiences in Summer. Summer is also the time to rebuild Lung energy—take advantage of the opportunity.
