I live in the South of France in a region called the Aude where it is known for its viticulture. I always feel the abundance of Mother Earth in the Autumn when the grapes are picked, and the local market has so many kinds of squash and different greens. I was raised on a farm in the Central Valley in California therefore I am always so thankful for the wonderful variety of foods grown there. Mother Earth offers us all our minerals through foods that are grown deep within her like carrots, beets, and potatoes. She also provides us with vitamins from fruits, berries, and vegetables.
Do you know you have Mother Earth within you?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine the Earth element is connected to two organs: the spleen and the stomach. The spleen is considered a major organ of digestion and the mother to all the organs because she transforms and transports nutrients to the heart and lungs.
How do you know if your Spleen is not nurturing you?
Physically you suffer from these health challenges:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Gas & Bloating
