Summer is winding down, the kids are back in school, the college students have arrived, and already there are a few clusters of yellow leaves on our aspen and cottonwood trees. This is the time in the Chinese Medicine Calendar of Late Summer. The Earth element dealing with digestion and metabolism is prominent and it goes along with the season of the harvest. Plants are fruiting, food is abundant and the animals in the wild are feasting and storing up for the winter ahead. We are also beginning to move into the fall. That is the time when in my own personal history, and from the stories I hear from my patients every day here in the office, of letting go of that which does not serve you. It is the time of year when I have purged closets, cleaned out the garden, and ended some relationships. Just as the trees will start to let go of their leaves, one also may have the impulse to let go of the old things that no longer fit.
Perhaps this is a good time to look at losing those extra pounds that have crept up on you! The Ultra Lite plan offered here at my office has been very successful at helping many patients lose that extra weight and keep it off. Perhaps it is time to start thinking ahead towards losing weight before the holidays hit! Enjoy the shifting of the seasons and enjoy a bountiful harvest of local squashes, tomatoes, peaches, and apples! Blessings!
