Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in the Summer

Summertime in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

NYC acupuncture food

Summertime in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is associated with the Heart and its Yang paired organ Small Intestine.

As a licensed acupuncturist in NYC, I often do my treatments according to master Tungs acupuncture seasonal point selections. Each season in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine corresponds to the specific organ that is connected to special acupuncture points in the five element system.

According to the Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine theory of 5 elements, the color associated with the heart is RED.

Eating red colored foods is good for the heart even drinking red wine in moderation could be good for blood and Qi (energy) circulation. Watermelon is one of the best summer fruits for heart health in the summer. It has cooling properties and cools the heart through the small intestine, which is the Yang organ of the (Yin) Heart organ. The color red benefits the Heart and it tastes good. It reduces the heat and has a lot of minerals as well.

Food for the Summer: Tomatoes, Watermelon, Cherries, Salmon and just about anything red in color would do. 

Heart Imbalances: High blood pressure, Insomnia, Irritability, Chest tightness, and pain, etc. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can be of help to balance, prevent, treat and bring the body to health. 

Summer foods in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that the mind is controlled mostly by the Heart. The process of thinking is accomplished by the Heart. Blood is the main foundation for mental activities, thus the function of heart dominates the blood and the vessels. If there is plenty of blood for the heart to pump, the mind is clear, thinking is nimble and one is full of vigor.

If there is a deficiency in the blood in the body, it will lead to pathological changes of heart-mind manifested by heart palpitations, insomnia, dream disturbed by sleep, poor memory, restlessness, etc. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, as well as homeopathy and Bioresonance Therapy, can treat these imbalances with success.

Summer is a great time to connect with nature as nature is the best healer. Chinese Acupuncture and Herbalists as well as Daoists always recommending getting in touch with nature and its laws.

Nature, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in NYC

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as well as many other ancient philosophies, advocate getting in touch with nature. It's hard if you live in NYC.

I live in Brooklyn by the Ocean on Coney Island and traded a short Manhattan commute for before work ocean swims and picking mulberries from the trees in season. 

Nature and Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine in NYC
These were hand-picked in the park near me in Brooklyn, NYC
I remember one of my acupuncture patients saying how much better she feels in nature and telling me how lucky I was to live by the ocean, meanwhile this person lived next to Central Park. 

You may say the grass is always greener on the other side, but what was stopping my acupuncture client from walking in Central Park and enjoying the nature?

Nature harmonizes our body just like Chinese Medicine helps the flow of energy Qi in the body, depending on the 5 element acupuncture system we are in. 

Parks and forest balance the liver and the eyes. Oceans, rivers, and lakes the kidneys. 

Nature is all around us from looking at a beautiful nature picture on a computer screen to walking in the parks, walking on a river shore or even recalling the memories of a recent vacation trip.

Life is what you make of it. Life is how we react to things rather to what happens to us.

Find a little bit of nature in your environment and you be surprised how much good it will do for you!
