The Stomach, Intestines and Colon are considered Yang Organs in traditional Chinese medicine. They are also an important part of the body's immune system. In order to optimize the immune system, it is necessary to consider gut health.
Eating sufficient amounts of fiber including fruits and vegetables as well as minimizing the intake of sugars and simple carbohydrates keeps the bacteria in the gut's microbiome happy and healthy enhancing the immune system.
The time of the Full Moon is a time of strong Yang energy at night. It is a time to take action and do things that otherwise may be overwhelming. From the Taoist perspective, it is a time when one's creative energy is peaking for the month and creative processes should be engaged in and fulfilled.
