Spring greetings from Inner Balance. It’s the season of the liver, the organ associated with spring in Chinese medicine. The liver is also regarded as the general of the body and subordinate to the ruler, which is the heart. According to TCM, the liver houses the will and if toxic it may hold onto anger and resentment. So spring is a very good time to tonify and cleanse the liver with veggies like beets and artichokes and green juices, along with occasional apples. You could even forage for nettle and dandelion and make a spring tonic and cleansing tea for the liver, and drink it while focusing on letting go of any stuck energy in that area.
Since the liver is responsible for 500 functions in the body and is the main detoxification system, it’s important to keep the liver healthy. So we’re offering a special spring acupuncture tune-up or holistic health consultation for a 15% discount until May 1st. Call 858-7555-5215 to make an appointment. Happy Spring!
