Bipolarity: The New Foundation of Life


Bipolarity is all around us.

It is what creates balance in our environment and in our bodies. This law can be found in biological processes such as acid/base, nervous pole/metabolic pole, and the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous systems.

During spring, the cerebral pole or the cerebral cortex is paired with the metabolic pole or the liver in conjunction with the gallbladder. The conception/governor meridian ensures communication between the lower and upper body.

Between these two poles, lies the other four meridian families which are paired according to the principle of bipolarity; they interact with the cortex and the liver:

The heart with the small intestines
The lungs with the colon
The stomach with the spleen/pancreas
The kidneys with the bladder

So, what does all of this mean to you?

If there are other functions/meridians that you haven’t fully restored then they can also become animated during spring. A deep disturbance in any of the meridians will eventually disturb the liver/gallbladder and you may feel it in spring. Therefore, in spring, people can exhibit all kinds of symptoms from a lungs/colon cold to feelings of depression and loneliness.

Remember, “issues” come up in the spring! They can be emotional or physical. Pay close attention to how you are feeling and learn what to do with your health.

Be careful of the way to talk to you! If you are feeling a bit disturbed and grumpy then chances are you are also more self-critical. This may cause you to feel like you can’t accomplish anything, that you are not good enough, or that everything is going wrong.

First of all, take the nutriments for the season and then stop telling yourself that everything is going wrong! Instead, encourage yourself with positive messages. You will feel a lot better!
