Spring time is liver detox time. Do you feel tired and exhausted? Are you struggling with a short fuse these days? Have your eyes been blurry? According to traditional Chinese medicine, spring is the season of the wood element.
Spring time in Chinese Medicine is the time for new beginnings and new growth. Spring is also all about the Liver and Gall Bladder. As many of you have heard us say, the Liver is the organ of the body that is most affected by stress. Spring is also a great time to do a liver detox which also detoxes the Gall Bladder.
In Chinese medicine, this is the 5 element theory. We just came out of the water element where our Qi went deeper inside the body. Now it is time to experience renewal. Your Qi has gone deep and the color for the water element is deep blue. The beginning of the wood element signals the Qi and it starts to break forth just as if you planted a seed in the ground. The plant pushes up from the dirt. This takes the body an effort to force the seed up that is why we can feel tired in the spring, some call it spring fever. This puts a lot of emphases on the liver. If the liver is stressed you will have a greater increase in liver symptoms. Each season we recommended a detox. Because it is spring the wood element we do a liver detox.
Traditional Chinese medicine encourages a detox in every season change as it is extremely healing for the seasonal organ. Unpleasant symptoms of liver season are:
Trust me the liver takes the hit for all the stress and stuffed unresolved feelings in your life. People are experts at stuffing feelings. Even if you are one who blows up and says I feel better I got that off my chest needs to know blowing up is not dealing with your feelings. It is simply damaging others self- worth to make you feel better.

The above therapy and supplements will support a liver detox without creating painful side effects. You will experience relief and gently bring your liver back to balance. If you do experience a detox effect cut your supplements in half until your body is adjusted to your liver detox.
At the Neeley Center, we recommend if you want to do a deep liver cleanse including colonics, juicing, fasting, and removing liver flukes please stay in contact with a health professional that you can check in with. People who do harsher liver detoxes can experience depression, tiredness, headaches and body aches. This is not bad but if detoxing isn’t a regular event you might not like it.
