Greetings!
 Anita web

How are you enjoying Spring so far?  

 

In our last issue, we talked about taking care of our liver, which corresponds to spring season in Chinese Medicine, and we shared some spring self care tips.  In this issue we've invited acupuncturist Peter Yeung to tell us more about how to care for our "liver".  (See below!)

 

Spring Time Self Care (Part II)
 
Vision...Stress...Liver...and overall health
Are you eyes dry and/or tired?  Is your vision deteriorating? When you get up in the morning do you have a lot of eye clue? 
In TCM, "liver" opens in the eyes, so eye issues can often reflect imbalances of the liver.
Other signs of liver stagnation and imbalances are fatigue, irritability, frustration, mood swings, hormone related issues. And Spring, being Liver season, is the BEST time to take care of your liver.  
liver and gallbladderWith modern understanding, the liver is our body's key detoxification organ.  Not only does it have to deal with the toxins we are exposed to from our food, the environment etc, it also has to neutralise all our stress hormones (yes it has to literally neutralise our "toxic" thoughts and emotional stress!)  TCM has long recognized the direct relationship between our liver and our emotions.

The liver is the only organ in us that completely regenerates itself even when it's damaged or cut out - and thank God it does, as it's so very vital to our health!

"Superfoods": spirulina, chlorella, goji berries (liver and kidney food)
Whole foods and their juices: artichoke, celery, asparagus, beetroot, burdock root, carrot...
Herbs: milk thistle, dandelion root, dried rose
