Don't Forget to Breathe...

The fall season is associated with the lungs in Chinese medicine. It is also related to the color white, the emotion sadness, the flavor pungent, and environmental dryness. Aside from enabling and carrying out respiration so that the body takes in oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide waste, the lungs in Chinese medicine do even more: they control the qi (or vital energy) of the whole body through respiration and in the formation of what we call Pectoral qi. This type of qi is created from inhaled air mixed with the essence of the food and water we ingest. It is then dispersed and distributed throughout the body. Because the lungs sit at the top of the thorax, their qi has a descending movement towards the lower organs and tissues. In this way, they assist in the circulation of qi and fluids throughout the rest of the body. The lungs dominate the skin and hair, and open into the nose and the throat and larynx. They regulate water metabolism and have a close relationship with the large intestine.Many syndromes pertaining to the lungs exemplify the roles they play in the body.
