Dealing with weakness of Metal energy

Accoridng to classical Chinese medicine, meal energies are the weakest during summer season, whch is associated with Fire. Despite overall balance of energies during the week commencing 27th May 2024, metal energies look quite weak mid week (see the charts below), so respiratory issues and skin problems may resurface for some, as well sinus and nasal problems, and last but not least, the issues with colon and digestion may also come to the fore.

To balance metal energy weakness: avoid dairy, cold and sugary foods, as well as too much spice. This advice is of course too generic, and must be adjusted for specific conditions.
