Fall: Harvesting Autumn
The Autumnal Equinox occurs in the Northern Hemisphere on September 22, 10:49 A.M. EDT, when the sun appears to move across the equator from the Northern Celestial Hemisphere to the Southern Celestial Hemisphere. As an expression in nature, this is the time when crops are harvested. Leaves are changing to brilliant colors as they float gently to the ground. Gathering and elimination are the traits of this season and can be seen in nature as well as human health.
Fall is good time to take a good look at our health and our lifestyle. Start by looking at the life around you. Are you living in chaos? Is your home in a shambles? Is there clutter everywhere? You may want to consider starting with a good gathering and elimination session. Here are some wonderful suggestions for having a bountiful Fall:
Fall is the beginning of the yin cycle when the daylight lasts less than twelve hours. Fall is ruled by the Metal element and is expressed in nature as well as in the body. Grief, sadness and depression are more prevalent during this season often due to the passing of summer, the change in light and the difficulty associated with letting go of the warm wonderful days. Find out how to balance your emotional life with Traditional Chinese Medicine .
The temple, our physical bodies, are the only thing we have to carry the soul. When our physical bodies are not in proper working order, everything around us ultimately suffers. Our good health is all we have that stands between us and the aging process. The longer you keep your physical body in optimum health, the longer you have your temple to keep your soul on this plane. It is easy to do a detoxification in the Fall and therefore, the best way to keep the body at its most ultimate working level. By enjoying more nourishing, warm, healthy, Fall foods, getting good quality sleep and moderate exercise this can keep our physical form at it's best, always.

Potent Herbal Antioxidant and Detoxification Support *
LifeShield protects against the environmental and oxidative insults that challenge the body every day. It has been the subject of two human clinical trials demonstrating its ability to dramatically elevate levels of glutathione and SOD (super oxide dismutase), important enzyme systems for detoxification and elimination of reactive oxygen species (ROS).* Since orally administered glutathione and SOD are poorly absorbed in humans and have not been shown to effectively raise blood levels, a better approach is to utilize compounds that stimulate endogenous production of these enzymes. LifeShield scavenges oxygen free radicals, modulates lipid peroxidation, and regulates the P450 system of detoxification.* Traditional use of constituents in LifeShield® from the American Botanical Council include Turmeric (Curcuma longa), Green Tea, Clove, Ginger (Zingiber officinalis), Parsley, Peppermint, Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis).
In humans exposed to smoke, thirty days of treatment with LifeShield substantially reduced or eliminated the metabolites of benzo[a]pyrene, a hydrocarbon toxin resulting from exposure to cigarette smoke, automobile exhaust, charbroiled meat, wood burning etc. LifeShield is the ultimate herbal antioxidant formula for support of normal cell growth.* Available in 60 Hexane-Free Softgel Capsules.
Suggested Use: One softgel two times daily with meals.

With the change of seasons from Summer to Fall we need to change our supplies in our medicine cabinet. With cooler weather comes a different set of illnesses that can be nipped in the bud with the right medicinals.
Arnica (Arnica montana): This year round herb helps stop pain. Use
this for arthritic aches, often set off by seasonal changes. Rub the
tincture, cream, or gel on sore spots, Do not use on broken skin.
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous): Take two capsules of this
antiviral herb twice a day to prevent or treat colds and flu. Look
for astragalus products standardized to 15-percent polysaccharides.
Calendula (calendula officinalis): Use calendula tinctures, oil,
lotions, or creams to soothe chapped skin and lips. Look for products
with at least 10-percent extract of Calendula.
Chamomile (Matricaria recutita): This soothing herb works great as a
dust-irritant reliever. Brew a cup of tea and let it cool. Place the
room temperature tea soaked in cotton on your eyes. Drink a cup of
chamomile tea for upset stomachs, heartburn, indigestion, or to
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea): Treat colds, flu, sore throat, and
other common infections with this natural enhancer of immune system
function. It's sold as tinctures and extracts, as well as capsules
and tablets. When you feel something coming on, take two capsules of
freeze-dried extract four times a day or a dropperful of tincture, in
water, four times a day.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): Take ginkgo for low circulation or
insufficient blood flow, mental fuzziness, memory loss, or vertigo.
Take 120 milligrams per day in divided doses with food. Look for
products with 24-percent flavonoid glycosides, or else 5- to 7-
percent terpene lactones (including 3-percent ginkgolides).
Siberian ginseng (Eleutheroccocus senticosus): This treatment for
lethargy and fatigue also boosts resilience to environmental
stresses. Take two capsules, or one dropperful of tincture, twice a
day or as a tea 2-3 times a day -- unless directed otherwise.
Tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia): This germicide and
antibacterial oil is great for cleaning infected wounds or as a
gargle for a sore throat -- use a 10-percent solution but use
pure 100-percent tea tree oil.
Triphala: An Ayurvedic Indian herbal mixture, triphala is a remedy
for constipation and poor bowel tone. Take only the capsules and
avoid triphala in powdered form.
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis): An assistant to sound sleep and a
treatment for insomnia, Valerian comes in tincture, extract, or
tablet form. Use one teaspoon of the tincture in a quarter cup of
water, or take one or two tablets at bedtime.
Fall, like Spring, is a time of extreme change for many living in non-
temperate areas. The air becomes drier or in some circumstances
wetter and cooler. These and other changes can foster the dreaded
cold or flu, which would normally be fought off by your body.
Emotional stress tends to be stronger in the Fall as we tend more
torward reflection. To assist in staying healthy, there are a number
of things you can do using essential oils in your environments.
The air becomes drier in the Fall. The membranes in your nose can
become dry and non-effective. This lack of proper filtering of air
can result in germs and bacterial agents gaining access into your
body and causing problems. Thus, creating a moist environment in your
home or work space is vital. Many people today use a central
ventilation system which includes humidification. Since mold,
bacteria and other foreign toxins can rapidly grow in stagnant water,
be sure to have your system properly serviced and ask if it is
suitable to add essential oils to the water being used.
Some system are not equip to allow for this. This is also true for
the electric humidification models being sold on the market. Read the
packaging carefully to see if essential additions are allowable. If
you find the model you have does not allow for aromatherapeutic
additions, you can use a pot of water on the stove (with essential
oil added) or a separate essential oil diffuser. As always remember
safety and do not leave the stove unattended. Some also find placing
water with essential oils in front of a fire place or on a radiator
to also work very well. The moisture plus the addition of the
essential oil will help your body to fend off various types of
infections. Changing the water frequently is, however still needed.
Key essential oils to use include Lavender and Tea Tree. These help
the immune system in the body to function normally and in themselves
kill germs, bacteria, mold, etc. Be sure to buy pure essential oils
and use enough when attempting to purify the air.
Fall can also be an emotionally uncertain time for people as well.
While the leaves may be a time of great beauty, the shorter days can
lead to sadness and light depression commonly known as "the blues".
Essential oils, particularly Lavender, have uplifting and mood
balancing qualities that may help one on both a mental and physical
level. You may want to consider these other essential oils for your Fall
Bergamont (Citrus bergamia) : Bergamot oil is a powerful antiseptic. In appropriate dilution, it has proven its use in the treatment of many troublesome skin complaints, such as eczema, some of which can be reluctant to respond to other forms of treatment. Stress-related complaints such as headaches and irritability will often respond well to a massage with oil of bergamot in the blend. The effect of the oil is vitalizing and uplifting, soothing tension away without any sedative effect. Bergamot eases problem gastrointestinal spasm and flatulence and gentle abdominal massage can bring relief from constipation and colic. The oil is also detoxifying and is thought to help in the treatment of cellulite when used in massage. In addition to this, when used for bathing, berga-mot oil can soothe inflammation and can help alleviate vaginal itching and the symptoms of cystitis. In inhalation or massage, it can be used in the treatment of respiratory infections such as sore throats and bronchitis. Bergamot can also be used in a mouthwash to deodorize bad breath and fight mouth and throat infections, or on the hair to control dandruff. Suitable methods of use Bathing, hair care, inhalation, massage, mouthwash, skin care, vaporizer/diffuser.
Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) : Cedarwood oil has a rich, honey color and a warm, woody, sweet smell that appeals to both sexes. The oil is extracted from wood - sawdust, chips and shavings - by the process of steam distillation. Aromatherapists use Cedarwood oil for the treatment of respiratory ailments. It has antiseptic properties, and is effective against coughs, bronchitis and catarrh. Its use in skin and hair care is well recognized, and it can be very beneficial in the treatment of dandruff, eczema and acne. As an ingredient in a blend to perfume a room, cedarwood oil is warm and pleasant. The oil is particularly useful in treating stress and tension.
Cinnamon (Cinnamoma Cassicia): There are two different oils extracted from the tree. Cinnamon-leaf oil has some use in aromatherapy, but cinnamon-bark oil is a strong irritant, high in toxicity and should not be used. Cinnamon-leaf oil is extracted from the leaves and young twigs of the tree by steam distillation. Commercially, it is used in the food and drinks industry in some sweets and carbonated drinks, and in the pharmaceutical industry it is used in cough medications and dental preparations.
Aromatherapists can use cinnamon-leaf oil in massage to relieve rheumatism, and it can also be beneficial in the treatment of digestive disorders. It is a stimulant and is used to treat circulatory problems. It can also be of benefit to those who are suffering from nervous exhaustion. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cinnamon is used to warm the interior as well as used for exterior conditions such as a common cold or flu.
Clove (Eugenia aromatica): This essential oil is extracted from the buds of the tree. The scent of the oil is hot-spicy, sweet, penetrating. Clove is a tropical evergreen tree that grows to a height of about 40-70 feet and has aromatic dark green leathery leaves and bright pink buds that bloom into yellow flowers, followed by purple berries.
Heating the oil creates vapors which open sinuses and breathing passages. This oil is uplifting, an aphrodisiac and reviving, is a mental stimulant, improves mental clarity and memory; improves digestion; reduces pain by numbing the area; a disinfectant and repels insects. Clove bud oil can irritate the skin and should either be avoided or used with extra care by people who have sensitive skin. Use small amounts.
Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin)
: Essential oil of patchouli is obtained by the process of steam distillation from the leaves of the plant which are previously dried and fermented. The oil is thick and viscous and is orange-amber in color. It has a distinctively sweet and earthy smell that is long-lasting and unlike other essential oils, actually improves with age. Patchouli oil is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory and can be used in skin care to treat acne, oily skin and open pores as well as minor sores that are weeping and reluctant to heal. It is also beneficial in the treatment of athlete's foot, chapped and paintful skin and eczema. Patchouli is particularly beneficial to aging skin and will also help prevent scars and stretchmarks. When used in a massage blend, particularly in abdominal massage, or alternatively in a warm compress, patchouli can relieve constipation and combat flatulence. Patchouli can also be used to strengthen the spirits when exhaustion has set in and will help restore a sense of calm and determination in stressful times. The oil also has aphrodisiac properties and can benefit in particular those whose desire or sexual performance has been adversely affected by stress and fatigue. Patchouli oil can also be used as an insect repellent.
Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides): Vetiver is a grass, a member of the family Poaceae (Gramineae) and it is native to southern India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. It grows to a height of approximately 6 feet. It has deep, strong roots and is planted in some countries to protect the soil from erosion. Therapeutically, Vetiver oil has a profoundly relaxing effect on the nervous system, relieving tension and stress. It can be used to good effect in the treatment of insomnia. In India, Vetiver oil is known as the oil of tranquillity. In baths or in massage, vetiver is beneficial in the treatment of the symptoms of disorders such as arthritis, rheumatism and stiff muscles. It is warming and comforting and will help to relieve the tension that is often associated with chronic pain. Vetiver oil also benefits the circulatory system, stimulating and warming, especially when used in combination with massage. In skin care, the antiseptic and slightly astringent properties of vetiver can be used to good effect in the treatment of oily skin that is prone to spots.

The crisp Autumn air hit my face as I was walking through the
Farmer's Market here in New York City this morning. I had a difficult
time getting up and felt as if I had molasses in my blood! I had no
motivation and found it difficult to even open my eyes all the way.
Just the opposite of my usual Yang personality!
As I strolled through the market, my eyes opened wide as I caught all
the wonderful, bright colors of the Fall fruits and vegetables. Fresh
herbs filled the air with their scent as I become very inspired and
ran home to write this article.
The Full Force of Fall is in Fruition!
Take advantage of the glorious healing properties of this Fall's
Apples: contain naturally-occurring chemical compounds known as
phytochemicals, polyphenols, or flavonoids, some of which have been
proven to have antioxidant activity that inhibits, or scavenges, the
activity of free radicals in the body. Cell damage from free radicals
can be a factor in certain cancers, heart disease, strokes, and other
conditions. The major antioxidant components in apples are
polyphenols contained mainly in the skin known as quercetin
glycoside, phloretin glycoside, chlorogenic acid, and epicatechin.
The names are complex, but their health value is clear: Quercetin has
been reported to reduce carcinogenic activity, inhibit enzymatic
activities associated with several types of tumor cells, enhance the
antiproliferative activity of anticancer agents, and inhibit the
growth of transformed tumorigenic cells.
Citrus Fruits: Hundreds of studies have been conducted on the
nutrients found in citrus fruit, including orange juice, and the role
these nutrients play in reducing the risk of such diseases as cancer
and heart disease, when part of a low fat diet rich in fruits and
vegetables. Citrus fruit, which contain essential vitamins and
minerals, are an important part of a healthy diet for all men, women
and children. In both fresh and juice form, citrus - including
oranges, grapefruit and specialty varieties such a temple oranges,
tangerines and tangelos - have many important nutritional benefits.
Barley Grass and Wheat Grass: Eating barley and wheat grass is like
eating a plate of green vegetables. These cereal grasses, are
harvested young and are ecologically grown in nutrient rich soil.
They are approximately 25% protein and contains all the essential
amino acids, concentrated vitamins, minerals and fiber. They have
been shown to increase our overall health by reducing intestinal
putrefaction and maintaining healthy blood another important
component of cleansing.
Broccoli: Broccoli is known as the "Crown Jewel of Nutrition" for its
vitamin-rich, high in fiber, and low in calorie properties. Not only
does broccoli give you the best vegetable nutrition available, it
also gives you many ways to lead a healthier, longer life. Heart
disease is the number one cause of death in the United States with
cancer as the second, and broccoli gives you many ways to help fight
and prevent these and other diseases. Broccoli has multiple cancer-
fighting properties including vitamin C, beta carotene, and fiber. It
is also rich of phytochemicals which appear to offer us protection
against certain cancers and heart disease. Indole carbinol and
sulforaphane are two different phytochemicals that are found in
Buckthorn Bark: Acts on the liver, gallbladder, blood and intestines.
Has a stimulating effect on the bile and conditions of the, liver,
gallbladder and lower bowels; does not gripe and keeps the bowels
regular without irritation.
Burdock: Supports the blood, kidneys and liver. A natural blood
purifier which eliminates uric acid and excess waste material.
Burdock is quite effective in treating dry and scaly skin disorders
such as psoriasis, dandruff and eczema, also helps break sown
calcification in joints.
Cabbage, Cauliflower: Nutritionally and medicinally, the cauliflower
is similar to the cabbage. Of course, the lower sulphur content is
obvious. Cabbage and cauliflower are rich in antioxidants, which help
prevent cancer, and prevent heart disease caused by oxidative damage
to blood vessels. It is especially rich in Vitamin C - one cup of
chopped flowerets or laces of cabbage meets a whole day's requirement
of this vitamin. A deficiency of Vitamin C causes scurvy because it
interferes with collagen synthesis. Collagen is one of the structural
frameworks of normal tissues. Other anti-cancer molecules present in
significant amounts included the phytochemicals sulforaphane and
Leafy Greens, Spinach: Leaf lettuce, beet greens, and spinach are
just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these salad vegetables.
Greens actually come in a wide variety of colors, textures, shapes,
and flavors. They may be green to yellow-white, or red to purple,
soft to crisp, curly to flat, and peppery to bitter to mild. Mix and
match them and you've created an exciting salad! Greens are an
excellent source of vitamin A and a good source of vitamin C. For a
bigger boost of vitamin A, buy greens that are medium to dark green
(the darker the leaves, the more vitamin A). Many greens, such as
spinach, kale, and collards are known for their mineral content,
especially iron, calcium, magnesium-as well as the vitamins folate,
riboflavin (B2) and vitamin K. Leaves are very rich in antioxidants--
the carotenoids and beta-carotene, the tocopherols (vitamin E) and of
course, vitamin C.
Onions: Diaphoretic, lubricating to muscles. Rich in sulfur compounds
called Thiosulfinates-they are anti-inflammatory and contain Vitamin
C, Quercetin and are a powerful antioxidant.
Scallion Bulb: very helpful in reducing the early symptoms of a cold.
This is a great remedy for diarrhea in the aged, as well.
Taro Root: Nutritious, assists the stomach, builds blood.
Consider all these wonderful healing foods when you stroll through
your Fall garden or Farmer's Market!
When eating along with the seasons, there are two elements that should be taken into account. The "nature" of the food and the "flavor" of the food. The nature of the food refers to the foods innate temperature ie: cold, hot, warm, cool or neutral. Eating a moderate amount of all flavors sweet, salty, pungent, bitter and sour can help to keep your body balanced and regulated.
Pungent taste is attributed to the lungs. Moderate amounts of pungent foods like garlic, onions, ginger, horseradish, and mustard are beneficial to the lungs.
To help tonify the large intestines, concentrate on eating fiber rich fruits, vegetable and psyllium. Consider chlorophyll rich foods such as spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, wheat brass, klamath blue green algae Other green foods that are beneficial are kale, parsley, and collard greens.
What we eat greatly affects the health of your lungs. Eating excess cold and raw foods creates dampness or phlegm which is produced by the spleen and stored by the lungs. Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, cream, and butter also create phlegm.
Consider eating these food for Fall:
1. Fruits and nuts: apples, cranberries, grapes, energy-rich nuts and seeds (including walnuts and sunflower seeds)
2. Cereals, grains, and legumes: brown rice, corn, millet, oatmeal, sorghum, soybeans, black gram, adzuki bean, red kidney bean, broad bean.
3. Meat, poultry and fish: chicken, turkey, shrimp, carp, eel, chicken eggs.
4. Vegetables such as the root vegetables (including garlic, onion, carrot, potato, sweet potato, yam, and burdock), as well as squashes and gourds (including winter squash, acorn squash, and pumpkin) cauliflower, broccoli and all types of cabbage.
5. Herbs, spices, condiments, oils such as perilla leaf, peppermint, dandelion, honeysuckle flower, basil, parsley, wolfberry (gou gi berries), fleece-flower root, licorice, astragalus, rhubarb, ginger, pepper, honey, sesame oil.
Detoxifying is the process of releasing accumulated toxins and waste products that build up throughout our system. From birth, we are bombarded by toxins, externally from environmental sources. Internally, our organs give off waste products that accumulate in our body. Imbalanced emotions also play a part in polluting our system with excess chemicals such as free radicals, homocysteine and cortisol.
Detoxifying is, in many ways, an easy process. Our body does much of the detoxification process through urination, defecation and perspiration. As our bodies age and our immune systems weaken from illness, poor diet and/or addictive substances, we sometimes need to give our system an extra helping hand. That is why conscious detoxing is great way back to optimum health.
One of the best ways to start your detoxification is with the body's biggest organ, the SKIN. A detox diet strengthens the organs involved in detoxification and
releases stored toxins, expelling them through the organs of elimination: the skin, as well as the intestines, liver, lungs, kidneys, and lymphatic system.
TIPS FOR DETOXING
1. Eating a diet that focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits.
2. Eat whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
3. Adopt a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise.
4. Avoiding drugs and alcohol.
5. Taking a high potency multiple vitamin and mineral supplement.
6. Take nutritional/herbal supplements to protect and enhance liver function.
7. Go on a three day fast, four times per year.
8. Fasting at the change of the seasons is a good rule to remember.
9. Take care of your skin and know your skin type.
10. Consider a self empowering affirmation to clear your mind.
Fall. The air becomes a bit crisper, you can see and smell the changing of the leaves... everything slows down, the days shorten, and harvest is just around the corner.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers practical advice for adjusting to seasonal changes. One of the basic concepts in TCM is the 5 Element Theory of correspondences. Each element has an associated season, emotion, taste, organ...
The Season of Autumn is associated with the element Metal. The emotional aspect is Grief. The predominant taste is Spicy. The associated and most effected organ in Fall are the Lung and Large Intestine and the most common external element is Dryness.
The Seasons, Stress, and Colds and Flu
Seasonal change, like any change, can cause stress. The main cause of
stress in TCM is Wind. Wind is said to be the "agent of 10,000 diseases," (The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine). Wind is understood to be not just the movement of air, but also, any sudden change. TCM has known for thousands of years that stress can cause sickness, and modern research has certainly proved this.
To combat stress, stay in a routine. To avoid colds and flu, keep your immune system up, cover your neck whenever outdoors and stay out of drafts. Wash your hands frequently, eat a balanced diet, get good quality sleep and exercise three times a week.
In Chinese Medicine, the lungs are an organ system that opens directly to the exterior. It's function is to regulate and control the breath through inhalation and exhalation. Because of its opening through the nose, the lungs are easily susceptible to cold, heat, dryness, dampness, and most of all, heat and wind. This can effect the biggest organ of the body; the skin. The lung is closely related to the large intestine. The large intestine controls the transformation of digestive wastes from liquid to solid state and transports the solids onwards and outwards. It plays a major role in the balance and purity of bodily fluids and assists the lungs in controlling the skin's pores and perspiration. It depends on the lungs for movement via the expansion and contraction of the diaphragm, which works like a pump to give impetus to peristalsis by regulating abdominal pressure.
The solar plexus Chakra is located below the diaphragm separating the lungs and the large intestine. This energy center is located at greatest nerve ganglia system in our bodies. This center allows for the communication between the upper and lower parts of the body and is connected to almost all the organs. The solar plexus is often where we consider our "gut" feeling to come from. This is also where the connection between the three lower Chakra interchange with the four higher Chakra energy centers.
The element, Metal is associated with the Fall season and with dryness.
The element is associated with the lungs and large intestines and related to the skin and the nose.
Metal represents our mental activity such as intellect and the ability to reason, memory, thoughts, knowledge and comprehension. Metal governs organization, order, communication, the mind, setting limits, and protecting boundaries. It also rules new beginnings, friendship, clarity, and positive expression. The Metal personality is very good at making decisions and carrying them through.
Emotionally, this element is associated sadness, as metal, like the season itself, represents a withdrawal from life. Reverence is sadness without the loss. This is what makes people cry when they are moved by an experience. A lack of reverence in your life is equivalent to the lack of nourishment from everyday things. The appreciation of each moment in the present, is the virtue of this element in balance.
The Metal element is associated with feng shui and Chinese medicine. The character of metal is "sharp, retracting, polised and finishing." People with the metal element in their personalities can be well-organized, have strong boundaries, are methodical, principle-oriented, analytical, and are very orderly. Emotionally, metal personalities can appear cold, distant or uninterested. They tend to favor intellect and reason over emotion. Metal out of balance, tends towards worries about the future.

The Air signs possess the virtue of knowledge. This does not mean they are more intelligent than anyone else but are generally well rounded and informed. They are good communicators. Most have a good grasp of the language and generally know a little something about everything. They have good personalities and are easy to get to know. Air represents our mental activity such as intellect and the ability to reason, memory, thoughts, knowledge and comprehension. It also rules new beginnings, friendship, clarity, and positive expression. The Air personality is very good at making decisions and carrying them through.
The Air signs are what the philosophers called seers or priests. These are mentally inclined people. They actively acquire knowledge through experience, education and association. In ancient times, the only educated people were priests, royalty or those who took it upon themselves to acquire knowledge (seers).
The Air Signs of the zodiac are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and they are the possessors of the virtue of knowledge. They are curious, have initiative, are original, generally are well disciplined and are quick thinkers. The Air signs have a mental nature and are keen witted. They rationalize by thinking things out rather than being influenced by emotional or physical factors.
They enjoy any type of entertainment where they can use their intellectual capacity and their ability to think quickly and accurately often gives them the upper hand. The emotional nature of the Air signs is directed toward self-appraisal. These people have a tendency to judge themselves very harshly.
They have certain standards they set for themselves such as hygiene, the way they dress, education, job performance and family. The Air signs are almost as ego-oriented as the Fire signs. Air signs resort to trickery. These people are crafty, under handed and ingenious when it comes to evil.
They are also prone to physical violence. Whereas the Fire signs' anger is generally of the moment and soon after forgotten, the Air signs at their worst are mean. They carry a grudge, and like Fire signs, they are quick to express their opinion and are very opinionated. Aquarius and Libra are not as violent as Gemini. Gemini and mind altering drugs such as alcohol just does not mix. The Air signs will not hesitate one moment to express their anger verbally, but physical violence is not a first choice during that anger (the exception being Gemini who will act in an instant).
Air represents the Breath of life! It is an exchange of electrons or flow of energy. Air is the primary nutrient. Survival without it is measured in minutes. It is so important that you do it without thinking. Your breathing is the voice of your spirit. It's depth, smoothness, sound, and rate reflect your mood. The cosmic breath, the Hindus speak of called prana is also the energetic life force the Chinese refer to as Qi energy.
Air can be a common theme when we dream. It can indicate ideas such as intelligence, being caught up in a whirlwind, tornado or hurricane of confusion or distraction. It can relate to the sacred breath or dreams about flying. You can find out more about air in Andrew's Dream Dictionary.
The gift of Air is flexibility, and their ability to experience life through many prisms. They're often excellent communicators, storytellers, interpreters and journalists. They link people together socially, and often have a curiosity that keeps them out and about. (courtesy of en.wikipedia).

Music has always played a major part in my life. Music continues to give me life changing moments and memories. I am forever grateful for this art and therapy.

Dryness is a common problem in Autumn. Dryness can manifest as constipation, dry throat, dry skin, dry eyes, dry brittle hair, thirst, and lack of sweat. Most people do not drink enough fluids regularly, let alone in the Autumn. Spicy food can cause or worsen dryness. Be careful not to get stuck in the vicious cycle of craving the same food that makes your symptoms worse!
Below are some of the most popular and common herbal remedies for aliments of the lungs:
Coltsfoot Root, (Tussilago farfara) The mucilaginous property of
the root makes it useful with lung problems, coughs, and intestinal
upset. Coltsfoot is available in tincture, syrup, capsules and tea.
The active ingredients are extracted from the dried leaves, root and flowers.
Ginkgo Biloba (Ginkgo Biloba) has been a staple with practitioners of
traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat asthma, allergies,
and coughs. Studies have shown that ginkgo can inhibit allergic response and
scientists have isolated an active ingredient in ginkgo that has an
Horehound, (Marrubium vulgare) can be considered whenever heavy, dry, mucus must
be discharged from lungs and respiratory passages. Horehound is the botanical
herb of choice due to its long history as a safe, reliable, and effective herbal
Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) contains elements helpful for
the adrenals and glands, inducing the adrenal cortex to produce more
cortisone and aldosterone. It is thought to exhibit a mucosal
protectant effect by beneficially interfering with gastric prostanoid
synthesis and increasing both mucous production and regional blood
flow. Very helpful in treating flu, colds, and lung congestion. It
is also found in popular cough remedies. Due to the adverse reaction
of licorice, many studies have been performed using the
deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract, which is free of
glycyrrhizin and has had no significant reported adverse effects.
Lobelia, (Lobelia inflata) is used smoking cessation and to treat
asthma and depression. The piperidine alkaloids (lobeline) are
believed to be responsible for the mechanism of action. In vitro
studies show that lobeline crosses the blood-brain barrier and has
similar activity to nicotine, and stimulates the release of dopamine
and norepinephrine. At low doses, lobelia has stimulant effects.
There are several contraindications with this herb. Lobelia is known
to cross into breast milk and should not be consumed by pregnant or
nursing mothers. Adverse reactions included nausea, vomiting, sweating, cough,
dizziness, bradycardia, hypertension, seizures, respiratory stimulation (low
doses) or depression (high doses).
Toxicity includes sinus arrhythmia, bundle branch block, diaphoresis,
cardiovascular collapse, seizures, coma. Herb-Drug Interactions
include nicotine. Lobelia may have additive effects when combined
with nicotine-containing products, resulting in toxicity.
Mullein, (Verbascum thapsus)is an antispasmodic, which is rich in
mucilage, a substance that soothes the throat. It is a good
expectorant and, in the process of clearing out congestion. It also
soothes irritation in the throat and bronchial passages. As an
antispasmodic, mullein can relieve stomach cramps and help control
diarrhea. Mullein is an age old remedy, which is specific for
bronchitis with hard cough and soreness. It is also a herb for cold
and congestion. The leaves and flowers are used to reduce mucous and
stimulate coughing up of phlegm.
Nettle (Urtica dioica)had been known to reduce allergic reactions. Rich in iron,
potassium and silicon, nettles combined with comfrey, mullein, or horehound can
be used for asthma.
Grief is a normal and natural response to loss. Though we often expect to grieve the death of a family member or friend, many other significant losses can also trigger grief.
*The end of a relationship
*A move to a new community
*A much-anticipated opportunity or life goal is suddenly closed to us
*The death of a pet
Someone we love contracts a potentially life-threatening illness Grieving such losses is important because it allows us to 'free-up' energy that is bound to the lost person, object, or experience --so that we might re-invest that energy elsewhere. Until we grieve effectively we are likely to find reinvesting difficult; a part of us remains tied to the past. Grieving is not forgetting. Nor is it drowning in tears. Healthy grieving results in an ability to remember the importance of our loss -- but with a new-found sense of peace, rather than searing pain.
No two people are likely to experience grief in the same way. The way we think and feel, the way our body functions, and the way we interact with others may all be affected. Some of the more common experiences include:
*Anger -- at those responsible, at the deceased, at ourselves, at
God, at any handy target
*Guilt -- "If only I had done . . ."
*Loss of appetite
*Withdrawal from others
*Intense sadness or tears when a memory is triggered
*Loneliness, or a sense of separateness from others
*Loss of life's meaning
Sometimes our reactions are so changeable, intense, or irrational that we fear we may be going crazy. Often grieving people are afraid to confront their grief for fear that if they open the door they will be drowned in a flood of tears or rage. Though this is very unlikely, allowing others to help us in our grieving is good 'insurance' that we will keep our balance. No matter what our intense experiences of grief may be they are temporary. There IS life after grief -- if we acknowledge and work through our reactions, rather than trying to stop them.
Fortunately, much of the process of healthy grieving seems to be 'built into' our genes. Acknowledging and growing from losses is such a natural process that much of it will happen without our direction -- if we relax our expectations of how we "should" grieve and give up some of our need to be in control. But healthy grieving is an active process; it is NOT true that, "You just need to give it time." One way of understanding the work to be done is to think of grieving as a series of tasks we need to complete (not necessarily in sequence):
*To accept the finality of the loss;
*To acknowledge and express the full range of feelings we experience
as a result of the loss;
*To adjust to a life in which the lost person, object, or experience
*To 'say good-bye,' to ritualize our movement to a new peace with the
loss. Good friends, family members, or a personal counselor can all
be helpful in doing this vital work. You can also do a good deal to
Active, healthy grieving requires balance -- balancing the time you spend directly working on your grief with the time you spend coping with your day-to-day life; balancing the amount of time you spend with others with the time you spend along; balancing seeking help from others with caring for yourself.
Focusing too strongly on any single side of these pairings is getting off-track. Here are some things others have found useful in their healthy grieving. Choose the ones that fit for you, or make up your own methods of self-care. Remember that grieving is an active process, it takes energy that will likely have to be temporarily withdrawn from the usual pursuits of your life. Treat yourself with the same care, tolerance, and affection you would extend to a valued friend in a similar situation.
*Go gently -- take whatever time it needs, rather than giving yourself a deadline for when you should be "over it";
*Expect and accept some reduction in your usual efficiency and consistency;
*Try to avoid taking on new responsibilities or making major life decisions for a time;
*Talk regularly about your grief and your memories with someone you trust;
*Accept help and support when offered;
*Be particularly attentive to maintaining healthy eating and sleeping patterns;
*Exercise moderately and regularly;
*Keep a journal;
*Read -- there are many helpful books on grief; some are listed
below. If grief is understood it is easier to handle;
*Plan, and allow yourself to enjoy without guilt, some GOOD TIMES.
*The goal is balance, not martyrdom;
*Carry or wear a linking object -- a keepsake that symbolically reminds you of your loss.
*Anticipate the time in the future when you no longer need to carry this reminder and gently let it go;
*Tell those around you what helps you and what doesn't. Most people would like to help if they knew how;
*Take warm, leisurely baths;
*See a grief counselor;
*Get a massage regularly;
*Set aside a specific private time daily to remember and experience whatever feelings arise with the memories;
*Choose your entertainment carefully -- some movies, TV shows, or books can only over-intensify already strong feelings;
*Join a support group -- there are hundreds of such groups and people have a wonderful capacity to help each other;
*Plan for 'special days' such as holidays or anniversaries. Feelings can be particularly intense at these times;
*Take a yoga class;
*Connect on the Internet. There are many resources for people in grief, as well as opportunities to chat with fellow grievers;
*Vent your anger in healthy ways, rather than holding it in. A brisk walk or a game of tennis can help;
*Speak to a member of the clergy;
*Plant yourself in nature;
*Do something to help someone else;
*Write down your lessons. Healthy grieving will have much to teach you.
Grief and Nostalgia
With Fall comes "gathering in, stocking up, mingled with a sense of loss as the light begins to fade and the air chills," (Between Heaven and Earth, p.205). Grief is, of course, quite natural and appropriate in many situations. But excessive and/or long-term grief can harm the Lung system (a group of correspondences including but not limited to the actual biomedical lungs), and likewise, people with Metal or Lung problems can be frequent grievers, criers. And let's not forget that more positive form of grief... nostalgia, tends to occur more in the 'Fall' of our lives.
Strengthening the immune system should be a part of any seasonal ritual! Any tonic formula that strengthens the lungs, nourishes the Qi and moistens the skin is appropriate. Remember, the best form of medicine, is preventative. Consider Andrew's great .
Crystals for Grief

is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fiber and
mucilage. Psyllium seeds contain 10-30% mucilage. The laxative
properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of the husk when it
comes in contact with water. This forms a gelatinous mass and keeps
the feces hydrated and soft. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex
contraction of the walls of the bowel, followed by emptying.

This is a life long lesson and third in the trilogy.
Utilize the strength of yoga therapy. What is your belief system ? Does it
serve you well? How about discovering some great meditations !
The Sun Salutation in yoga is a great wakening and cleansing exercise. This is a flowing combination of some of the asanas in hatha yoga.
Stand in Tadasana, take a deep breath, clasp thumbs in front of you
and raise arms in front of you over head. Arch back from the waist.
Now, fold over at the waist as you exhale, placing palms on the
floor, Uttanasana, step your right leg back into Lunge, step your
left leg back to Plank, come into Bhujangasana, flow into Adho Mukha
Svanasana, step your right foot forward to Lunge, left foot forward
for Uttanasana, inhale up to Tadasana. Repeat, stepping your left leg
back into Lunge.
Breath is life! Exchange of electrons. Flow of energy. Air is the
primary nutrient. Survival without it is measured in minutes. It is
so important that you do it without thinking. Your breathing is the
voice of your spirit. It's depth, smoothness, sound, and rate reflect
your mood. If you become aware of your breath and breathe the way you
do when you are calm you will become calm. Practicing regular,
mindful breathing can be calming and energizing. With the addition of
music and it's rhythm, the "musical breath" can even help stress-
related health problems ranging from panic attacks to digestive
disorders. Fall into the rhythm of the music and breathe. Focus on
your breathing and the music.
Focusing on the breath is one of the most common and fundamental
techniques for accessing the meditative state. Breath is a deep
rhythm of the body that connects us intimately with the world around
Close your eyes, breathe deeply and regularly, and observe your
breath as it flows in and out of your body. Give your full attention
to the breath as it comes in, and full attention to the breath as it
goes out. Whenever you find your attention wandering away from your
breath, gently pull it back to the rising and falling of the breath.
Inhale through your nose slowly and deeply, feeling the lower chest
and abdomen inflate like a balloon. Hold for five seconds. Exhale
deeply, deflating the lower chest and abdomen like a balloon. Hold
for five seconds. Do this three or four times, then allow your
breathing to return to a normal rhythm. You will begin to feel a
change come over your entire body. Gradually you will become less
aware of your breathing, but not captured in your stream of thoughts.
You will become more centered inward. You will just "be there."
Music has always played a major part in my life. Ever since those early days of piano lessons with Mrs. Uri or playing trumpet in classical and jazz bands. I always remember the holidays or special occasions when my mom, Andrena, would regale us with wonderful pieces of music such as Malaguena
or her own special version of Silver Bells.
I have had the pleasure of singing in small and large choral groups from All-state to my own singing quartet group, Free and Easy, as well as, being a charter member of the infamous gospel choir, The Voices of Unity. Music continues to give me life changing moments and memories and I am forever grateful for this art and therapy.
So on my walk through the woods today, I thought it would be a wonderful gift to share the songs of Fall that make up my consciousness. These melodies cross several eras, yet they ring true for me as the seasonal mind set and the amazing way Autumn can be expressed in song. I call this list:
