Our Liver is at its most sensitive during this season, so it needs extra special attention. A stagnant liver, which in many cases is caused by over-eating or drinking, too much stress, or too many man-made chemicals (especially nasty oestrogen), means your ‘qi’ or energy is blocked, causing feelings of sluggishness.
This leads to anger and frustration and a sense of being held back.
At first when the liver qi becomes blocked you can become depressed or frustrated, then when the qi pushes through the blockage all at once, it shows up as anger.
In a physical sense, liver stagnation can cause a sensation of having a lump in the throat or neck or distension in the breasts or abdomen, menstrual problems, a red face, issues with your nails, headaches, allergies, skin problems like acne, gut issues, PMS and other hormonal imbalances, thyroid issues, adrenal problems and so much more.
It’s pretty important too show your liver some extra lovin’ this season by adding lots of green foods, as well as other spring foods like chlorella, spirulina, garlic, broccoli, beetroot, cauliflower, baby spinach and kale, cabbage, green tea, brussels’ sprouts, carrots.
