Lessons from Winter: The Water Element

According to Chinese medicine each season corresponds energetically to a different organ system in our bodies. The Kidney System (both energetically and physiologically) operates at its peak function during the winter season. Kidneys are important for your longevity and supply reserve Qi to all the other organs in your body that are running low on energy. Be mindful of Kidney energy imbalance symptoms such as: low energy and fatigue; urinary issues; lower back pain; knee pain; tinnitus; bone/teeth issues; sexual issues; increased susceptibility to illnesses; and pronounced anxiety, fear, and depression during the winter months.*
