Do you suffer from asthma, allergies, breathing difficulties, eczema, and/or depression?  In Chinese Medicine, each internal organ is related to a particular season.  By taking care of that organ during its season, you can better maintain your health.  The autumn season is related to the lungs.  In this lecture, Mei-Lin Maunakea will share the functions of the Lung organ in Chinese Medicine and discuss how to protect it with nutrition and acupressure points.

Mei-Lin Maunakea, MSTMC, Dipl. OM, L.Ac, is a Hawaii licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  She practices at the Kuakini Medical Plaza where she treats a variety of conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, menstral irregularities, pain management, and weight loss.
