Late Summer is associated with the Earth element and its meridians, Stomach and Spleen. These meridians or channels are responsible the digestion of food and information.
It’s not unusual for the Spleen and Stomach meridians to be low in energy at this time. I often see an increase in clients attending my clinic with symptoms of low energy, blood sugar imbalance, weight gain, IBS symptoms, nausea, trouble taking in information and excessive worry.
Worry is the most common issue I see. And it’s often linked to overthinking and not being able to switch off mentally. When your Earth element is imbalanced this constant worry and stress can also negatively affect your digestive system (think IBS symptoms).
