Time—whether the hour of the day or the season of the year—is an important element in healthcare according to traditional Chinese medicine. Qi, the body’s vital energy, is like the tide, fluctuating and flowing over time. The cycle of four seasons is a complete circulation and the same is true of the 24-hour day. Understanding this kind of “body clock” will help you to achieve and maintain good health.
