Be Ready With Deep Roots for Spring!

March 28, 2020


“The deep roots never doubt that spring will come.” Marty Rubin

Spring is a time of new growth and rebirth.  New beginnings with warmer days and more day light make us think of the determination of the flowers poking their heads up through the ground.  The sun on our bodies feel so good after winter, nourishing us with vitamin D and keeping us healthy.  Watching all the birds come back after migration and hearing their sweet songs remind us of the wood element.  The two meridians in wood according to Chinese medicine are the liver and the gall bladder.

The liver has a big job of cleansing the blood by filtering it, removing toxins, and creating hormones.  It is also responsible for the smooth flow of chi or life force energy in the body and of blood flow throughout the body.  It is the only organ in the body that can rebuild itself if 80 percent of the tissue is destroyed.  That is definitely renewal.  Milk-thistle is a supplement that can aid the job of the liver.  Let’s be mindful of what we eat and how we treat our body with exercise.  Lemon water and staying well hydrated helps your liver.

Next week I will share information regarding your gall bladder.
