Springtime is coming and the trees are blooming.  Spring is the time of the WOOD element, which is associated with the color GREEN, the Liver, the tendons, and the eyes.  Spring sprouts, buds, and is a time of new beginnings.  The WOOD element likes to grow, expand, and spread out, so don’t constrain it, or else it’ll get irritable and angry.  So, what can you do to support your WOOD element and LIVER?  Some ideas include:


*exercise, whatever feels good and gets you moving

*don’t suppress your emotions, find CREATIVE outlets for anger, frustration, and depression

*start a new project, make a new plan

*give your LIVER a rest from chemicals, stimulants, alcohol, and fried foods

*eat lots of FRESH foods, especially GREENS

*eat whole foods like brown rice and lentils

*eat nuts like walnuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and almonds

*chew well and breathe during mealtimes (chew your drinks and drink your food)

*juice fruits and veggies

*drink herbal teas of nettles, dandelion, and mint

*take milk thistle or other LIVER detox formulas

*exfoliate your skin with a loofa or dry brush to release toxins

*adhere to a routine, eat at regular times and go to bed by 11pm to rest your LIVER


If you can find 3 or 4 things on this list that sound do-able, go for it, your LIVER will thank you!!!
