Fall is here (even if it feels like winter)! According to Chinese 5 element theory, fall is the season of metal, immunity and digestive health. It’s the season about letting go, allowing the transition from growth (Spring) to decline (Winter) happen. ]
For immunity health, ginger will be your best friend this fall. Combine with clove and cinnamon to also boost circulation and warmth throughout this fall. Good thing that these herbs are common in our holiday cuisine and the fall staple, the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte). Lungs are also happy with other pungent foods like garlic and onions.
For digestive health, squashes and root vegetables will provide fiber and soothing moisture to keep bowels healthy and happy.
The metal element is all about control and order. So during it’s peak season, it’s important to know what to focus on and what to let go. Not letting go or unhelpful beliefs, emotions or people can bind up your energy and make you more susceptible to illness in the winter months.
Coats for Kids Coat Drive
NOVEMBER 12th -27th
HELP KEEP CENTRAL TEXAS KIDS WARM THIS WINTER
Did you know that 14% of children in Travis County and 74% of children in Del Valle live at or below the poverty line? This year, PK Acupuncture and Wellness is supporting COATS FOR KIDS to help make a difference in each of these children’s lives.
We will be holding a coat drive from November 12th – November 27th. The following are 3 ways you can help us reach our goal of 50 coats!
- DONATE A COAT: Drop off a new or gently used coat at PK Acupuncture and receive a discount on your session.
- DONATE DOLLARS: PK will match your donation. Every $20 buys a child a new coat.
- TAG US ON SOCIAL MEDIA: Use hashtag #coatsforkidsatx and tag us @pkwellness. Each mention, up to 25, earns another coat towards the drive! Receive a PK goodie bag as a “Thank you”.
- VOLUNTEER: Come help out on distribution day, Saturday, December 8th. Ask us how!
We hope you will support the PK Acupuncture and Wellness coat drive. You can learn more about COATS FOR KIDS by visiting www.jlaustin.org/coats. Thank you for your support!
