Tuesday, August 21 at 9 am is the height of the Earth element coinciding with the summer harvest. The spleen and the stomach rule this time of year and invite us to consider the importance of healthy food and good digestion in maintaining good health throughout our life. My teacher, Bob Duggan, called it our health checking account, in contrast to our constitution, which is our health saving account. Eat well and maintain a healthy checking account, replenished daily, and do not dip into your constitutional reserves except when absolutely necessary.
On Tuesday, August 21, between 8 am. and 10 am., the clinic will be open for those who wish to fine tune their earth element at the most powerful time of the year for the spleen and stomach. The earth element helps the production of Qi (translated as energy, matter-energy, vital force, life force) and blood. Qi helps transport the blood to all areas of the body (especially the extremities which can suffer from poor circulation when the qi is weak). It helps good digestion, red cell production, and nourishes all the organs of the body, helping them do their job. A strong moving qi helps reduce dampness and inflammation in the body and fight masses, lumps and tumors. A good flow of qi and blood helps build muscles.
Emotionally, a strong spleen and stomach help clear the thinking process, and create steps in achieving our goals. An imbalanced spleen and stomach would tend to increase worry, inability to focus and overthinking.
Thursday Morning Strengthen Your Digestion Clinic Starts August 30th...
In addition, on the following Thursdays, between 8 am.and 11 am., (August 30, September 6, 13, 20, 27 and October 4), there will be a series of special Strengthen Your Digestion clinics aimed at tuning the spleen and stomach, using a series of acupuncture points known to improve their functions.
