"A Happy Heart is the Best Medicine"




According to the Chinese lunar calendar, we are currently enjoying the first phase of Summer, or lì xià (立夏). Visibly, this applies mostly to the more southern regions of the continent. Energetically, however, the essence of Summer is already apparent in all the Northern Hemisphere.  


The frequency of Summer is aligned with the main Fire element organ, the Heart, considered to be the ruler of all organs. The Heart governs your being at all times, but even more so during the Summer.


What does this mean for one's health and wellness? Anything that you do for Heart health at this time will have a profound effect on both overall and cardiovascular health. As an ancient TCM proverb states, "If the King is happy, then the entire Kingdom flourishes."


According to Chinese medicine, joy and love are the emotions that energetically stimulate Heart function. The best way to enhance mind-body-spirit health is to truly enjoy living life and loving oneself and others. Or, as a Biblical proverb (17:22) says, "A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones."

 

We wish you much love, success, and joy in 2024.
