When we are faced with uncertainty, it is very comforting to hold onto what we think
we know and make no changes. Unfortunately, this pattern is very commonly seen in
a clinical setting, and it prevents many people from getting healthier.
In Five Elements Theory used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the emotion of fear
belongs to Water element. People who have a weak water element tend to show these
• Not willing to try or learn new things
• Become very defensive when opposing ideas are presented
• Have hard time letting things go & need to have the last words
• Low back & knee pain
• Aging, bone, urinary and reproductive issues
Water element is also related to winter season and kidney. People who have weak water
element can easily be stuck in this stage and fail to experience the next stage:
spring, a season of growth.
So how can you overcome fear of unknown? Surround yourself with right type of support,
and empower yourself with new and updated knowledge. One of the reasons why I provide
nutrition seminars is to empower yourself with new knowledge.
Once you have a solid foundation, you can overcome your fear and take your health
to the next level.
