Seasons Correspond to Specific Organs

TCM believes that each of the four seasons芒鈧€渟pring, summer, fall, and winter芒鈧€渉as connections with a specific organ. Spring correlates to the liver, summer to the heart, fall to the lungs, and winter to the kidneys. Take summer for example, since the heart is hot by nature, it is advised to eat cold and bitter foods in this season. For fall, as the season is regarded as the time to accrue essential energy, it is advisable to have nutritious foods with sweet and sour taste. And for winter and spring, we should nourish the kidneys and replenish the liver respectively.
