Just like the seasons and our bodies - all of life is cyclical. There is a time to let go, a time to grow, a time to shine bright, and a time process and rest. These cycles connect us, they move through us, and if we let them - they can also work for us. Throughout this collection of articles, we will explore each element through a Chinese medical lens, within its very own season, and how it relates to our health and well-being. In this article, I will provide an overview, as we proceed with a heightened perspective, zoom out, and look over what’s to come.
When it comes to food, it is of the utmost importance to drop the dogma and discover what works for you and your body. Believe it or not, kickstarting a new diet and cultivating a new mindset around food can be fun, especially when you approach it through an exploratory lens and decide to create health. Our culture, especially in the U.S., has a tendency to demonize real food, glorify diets, and deprive ourselves of the vital nutrients that we need to live optimal, energetic lives. These patterns simply do not work, yet many people continue with this approach because they just don’t know how to opt out or that there even is another way.
Supplements can help to support you on your own path to radiant health, freedom and becoming who you truly are. Supplementation can be a great therapeutic addition to a healthy mindset, diet and lifestyle- but in no way can it replace it. In my practice, I use supplements to bring grace and ease into the healing process, which can be very challenging at times.
