Spring is here! Just like the budding leaves and excited, chirping birds. We also have this bubbling energy in the springtime like the rest of Mother Nature. In Traditional Chinese medicine, Spring is related to the Liver organ. The liver is in charge of regulating the movement of energy in the body. When we get pent-up energy, it’s called liver stagnation. We often can feel angry, frustrated, stressed, and depressed when our body and mental state gets stuck.
Now that we are 7 weeks deep in physical distancing, our Liver Spring energy might be extra stagnated this year. We can experience headaches, migraines and physical tension often more in the neck and shoulders. Women might feel like their PMS is worse right now, feeling extra moody, with breast pain and cramps before their cycle starts. Men might feel like they have extra energy to burn and may explode if they don’t expend it.
Here are some of the best ways to cure your liver stagnation:
Yours in health,
