Autumn is the time of the metal element. The Lung and the Large Intestine are the officials/organs associated with this time. The Lung takes things in and the Large Intestine lets things go. The earth, animals and people naturally start to slow down and turn inward.
The weather changes, the trees lose their leaves and we tuck into our homes. It is the season when we take the time and space to reflect on our values. Are our actions and choices aligned with them?
Now is the time to reflect on and honor what is important, inspiring and valuable. After evaluating, you need to let go of activities, internal voices, choices; whatever is getting in the way of living your values.
A characteristic of Metal can be seeking perfection. This can create disappointment and dissatisfaction. Instead, this is a good time to forgive the imperfections and experience grief by acknowledging what has been lost.
This is the time of year where we work to establish order and create a framework for our world.

LISA PORAD ACUPUNCTURE
Welcome to Fall and the time of the Metal Element. I hope you enjoy my newsletter. This seasonal newsletter provides insight into the ancient art of acupuncture as well as encourages you to create balance in your life. I would appreciate any feedback. email@example.com
Classical Acupuncture concentrates on the connection between ourselves and the rhythm of nature's seasons.
Each season corresponds to a particular element: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. These elements influence, nurture and sustain us. We have all the elements within us but one that is our causative factor (CF). Our causative factor is the lens through which we view life.
Classical Chinese Medicine teaches that physical, mental and spiritual health is dependent on the balance of these elements.
Imbalance of the elements is expressed through symptoms such as pain, illness, disease, addiction and emotional suffering.
I practice acupuncture to help heal the body, mind and spirit by restoring the natural harmony of the elements.
Grief never ends.....But it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith.....It is the price of love.
I look forward to hearing from you. Call or email me for an appointment. We will work on strengthening your mind/body/spirit and thoughtfully treating whatever ails you. 206.295.2166 or firstname.lastname@example.org
