Winter with Chinese medicine – Nature & Health


Winter with Chinese medicine

This article was written by Doctor of Chinese medicine Shura Ford for Nature and health magazine for their Winter wellness special issue.

Seasons play a pivotal role in Chinese medicine philosophy so adapting to the energetics of the seasons is encouraged.

The cooler weather of Winter makes for a dormant season. We see nature become slower and more inward therefore plants and animals move energies inwards to protect themselves from the elements. In Winter humans also display these characteristics. Our Qi moves inwards to protect our internal energies and to protect against the invasion of cold pathogenic energy from the environment.
