Five Element Theory – Winter

Happy first day of Winter! In the “Five Element Theory” the Winter season is associated with the water element. The water element correlates to the kidney and the bladder. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are considered the source of all energy, or Qi, within the body.

To keep your water element strong remember these three R’s: Rest, Replenish and Relax. Or simply put, don’t burn the candle at both ends! So this Winter season, remember to not over do it, and to find what helps you rest and relax.
