Welcome fall!

As the leaves are turning such brilliant golden shades, and the air is getting crisp, I am enjoying more time cozied-up inside with a blanket and warm cup of tea reading in my favorite comfy chair.

In Chinese medicine, fall is a season of beginning to rebuild, to store-up and to prepare for the winter season. Fall is a good season for you to examine new ways to be caring for yourself. Eating hearty soups with lots of root vegetables, lentils and grains will nourish your body. Taking the time to get plenty of rest and not engaging in overly stressful activities is also important in this season.

In my times of restoration I have been doing a lot of reading and have found a number of interesting articles online and I thought I would share a small sampling with you all… let me know what you think!

Be Well,
Dr. Rachelle

One Comment to “Welcome fall!”

  1. Your advice to take the opportunity to rest & restore in preparation for the hard season of winter is quite fine. Too often I think we Americans drive ourselves to be productive & useful; sometimes, it’s just the right thing to do to cozy up with the book & the tea! And sometimes, we just need a word of permission to do so, just as you have given us. Thanks!
