Getting in the spirit of Spring, starting to eat more raw foods and healthy treats having dusted off the dehydrator. In Taditional Chinese Medicine, spring is a time for embracing new life, new directions and watching those seedlings of ideas burst in to fruition. This is your Liver talking, in total harmony, raising your mood and your energy upwards!
Your Liver thrives on cooler food and that includes the way you cook – so now is the time to embrace raw, slurp up an abundance of nutrients in juices and smoothies and smooth that Liver energy to help you rise upwards, with force and positivity. Recipe below.
When your Liver it out of balance, it can stagnate and lead to common digestive complaints, anxiety, depression and lingering sinus infections (coughs, colds, headaches etc.), so you may be seeing quite a bit of this around at the minute.
These healthy treats have been made with my patients in mind this week, to compliment their current treatment plan. This is the absolute joy of acupuncture treatments, it’s not simply about the little needles, it’s a dynamic approach to your over all health to create sustainable, enjoyable, positive changes. There are no rigid routines; each treatment is totally responsive to your need as your body changes and as the seasons change.
Enjoy fellow natural health junkies!
