The period between the summer solstice which is at the peak of light with longest day and shortest night, and autumn equinox with equal day and night, is a pivot from yang towards yin, or a diminishing of fire energy and the Fire Element of summer.

This pivotal period corresponds to the Earth Element, where late summer rain nourishes the crops for its eventual maturation before the autumn harvest. Earth Element is the harmonizer, transforming energy from hot to cool, yang to yin, masculine to feminine, and active to stillness.

Within the human body, Earth is associated with the transformation

and harmonizing properties of the digestive system which breaks

period, it may lead to excessive bacterial and yeast overgrowth,

resulting in SIBO or small intestine bacterial overgrowth that plaques

one with bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea and abdominal

distention and pain. Therefore, reduce excessive sweets, including

fruits and refined grains in your diet and opt for mostly cooked

vegetables, include roots like sweet potato, yams, turnip, daikon, taro

and rutabagas, small amounts of lean proteins, beans and legumes,

nuts and seeds and wait to consume fluids until well after the meals

are finished.

the onset of the yin stillness-- characteristics of the ensuing autumn

and winter and help you avoid sickness and imbalance.
