Falling into fall: the act of transitioning

As the vibrant hues of summer begin to mellow into warm, earthy tones, we find ourselves on the cusp of a profound transition – the shift from late summer to fall. In traditional Chinese theory, this transition is not just a change in weather; it's a journey of the mind, body, and spirit. As we prepare for this seasonal transition, let's dive into the wisdom of Chinese medicine to understand how the transition to fall is intricately woven into the core of our well-being.

Transitioning into fall also calls for an adjustment in our diets. Just as we swap out our summer wardrobe for warmer layers, our bodies require nourishment that aligns with the season. Warm, cooked vegetables take center stage, providing sustenance while aiding digestion and maintaining the balance of Qi. Foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash offer comfort and grounding, enhancing our connection with the earth.
