Transitioning From Winter to Spring with Chinese Medicine
In Chinese Medicine theory Liver and Spring are correlated. Did you know that your liver is one of the most important organs for renewing, cleaning and energizing the body?

Help Your Liver:
- The Liver rules your emotional health and letting go of negative emotions can soothe your Liver Qi.
- The Liver opens to the eyes and prolonged screen time can have damaging affects. Try to take breaks from computers, lap tops and televisions. The weather is getting nicer and we can again enjoy the outdoors.
- The Liver controls the tendons. Stretching or yoga could be a nice way to release tension physically and help your emotional health.
- The Liver is related to your ability to plan ahead, while the gallbladder is related to your ability to finalize decisions. Be positive to protect these vital organs, allowing yourself to grow as nature intended.
Taking care of your Liver will greatly improve your transition from the dull, somber winter to bright and sunshiny springtime. See a Chinese Medicine practitioner (or drop me a note) to give you dietary, herbal formulas, or acupuncture information to help you along into this new season!
