Hope is in the air. It’s a new school year and we are all starting fresh. Let me tell you about my kindergartner, Emmie. She wants to be a scientist when she grows up.

One of the first things I learned as a student ofChinese Medicinewas that everything has a cycle.

This idea of practicing or living in accordance with the rhythm of the necessary, the timely, and the needed is also true for us as human beings.
There is this idea in Chinese Medicine that Women and Men move through life in cycles of seven and eight, respectively. These cycles are an attempt to describe the evolutionary process of aging observed in Women and Men and how it affects and impacts health at different stages of life. These evolutionary stages are also a timetable to describe a very important concept in Chinese Medicine calledJing.
