Seminar: How the Seasons Affect Our Health
Shi-Min Shaw will present “How the Seasons of the Year Affect our Health” on Tuesday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m. in Melbourne. Shaw, an Acupuncture Physician practicing at Ni’s Chinese Medical Center, will discuss the relationship between Traditional Chinese Medicine and the seasons of the year. “You will learn how the seasons can have a profound effect on our well-being, how we are greatly influenced by climatic changes and how important it is for us to live in harmony with them,” says Shaw.
The ancient Chinese used the 5 elements of our external environment; wood, fire, earth, metal and water to describe how our internal environment functions. Each of those elements corresponds to a season, a color, a time of day, as well as aspects of the individual, such as emotions, activities, internal organs and senses. “The best way to stay healthy according to Chinese medicine, is learning about the nature of each season and living in harmony with it,” says Shaw.
