In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), living with the seasons is vital to prevent illness and precaution the balance of our body’s systems. This is because as our external environment changes, our internal (physical) health shifts too. In TCM, Fall has a nature all its own: it is the season where the active Yang energy of the summer diminishes into the more organized, calmer, and meditative Yin phase of the year as we prepare for Winter.

Autumn is associated with the Metal element and Lungs which govern the skin, respiratory system, immunity, and the emotions of grief/sadness. The fall is also ruled by dryness and wind which can dose the Lung, leading to common symptoms such as a scratchy throat, a dry nose, chapped lips, dry cough, etc. To protect the body from these factors, preventative health for fall focuses on warming and reinforcement the body.

The kidney is the foundation of the innate body system. During the period from the beginning of winter to the beginning of spring, Yang energy is descending while Yin energy is uprising. Our body’s metabolism is relatively low. Therefore, it relies on the kidney’s driving force to function and winter is the best time to tonifying the kidney.

According to the “five elements theory” of Chinese medicine, the kidney is the organ related to winter, and the representing color is black. Many black ingredients are not only rich in nutrition, but also mild in nature and flavor, such as black beans, black sesame seeds, black fungus, etc. Some ingredients that do not look black, such as walnut meat and yam, also have a strengthening effect.
