October and Chinese Wellness-What Kind of Jade to Wear During October

October and Chinese Wellness
The cycle of yin reverses its movement in aututm, October. It's a time when our health and energy need to be protected. The month of October is related to the lungs and lung meridian, which is the metal element. Summer is a season of joy and fun, but metal autumn cannot tolerate this. When metal has too much pleasure, joy and elation, this leads to pathology according to Chinese Medicine. This is manifested in depression, skin wrinkles and shrivels, hair becomes brittle. Metal is related to the lung, and is associated with the colon. Metal needs a certain amount of warmth to function properly. Too little warmth causes this metal organ to become brittle and stiff, but too much warmth causes instability as metal melts when it gets too hot. Too much joy can injure the lungs, resulting in loss of elasticity and oxygen imbalance, as we see in asthma and emphysema.The colon is also important for removing toxins from the body. If the colon is out of balance, which can result in constipation, as well as the emotions of becoming rigid in beliefs and believing things are true when they are not.

Yellow jade has energy for the spleen meridian which helps to balance qi for stomach problems. White jade has qi energy to balance the lung meridian.
Chinese tea is also helpful to drink for benefits to improve your immune system to ward off the colds and flu that often come in October. Green tea is a classic tea with many health benefits.

  1. People at this clinic not only focuses on the problem areas that I highlight but also looks for subtle locations that I am often not aware of but are actually affecting my pain levels. The acupuncturist Mississauga also makes sure to give me holistic pain relief including stress.
