Happy Spring Everyone!

As we transition through the seasons, new energies deep within us and within the earth have begun to bubble forth with a strong upward moving energy.  We can see this in the conviction of new plant shoots pushing their way unwaveringly upwards through the solid earth, around pebbles and rocks, and up into the sunlight.  On the human level this can be a time of change and transition, and also the beginning of manifestation of vision and new projects. This is a great time of year to cleanse and move the body in preparation for the summer season

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, springtime is connected to the Liver/Gall Bladder, the organ pair responsible for governing the smooth flow of qi through the body and connected to the faculties of vision, imagination, dreaming, clear direction, and organization.   We can experience the upward surge of springtime energy in a variety of emotional and physical symptoms and so it is a great time to address:
  •  irritability, impatience, frustration or anger
  •  tension in our neck and shoulders, headaches
  •  lack of direction or difficulty in making decisions
  •  increased mood swings, PMS, menstrual imbalances
  •  digestive disturbances
  •   allergic reactions
  •  stress and anxiety
  •  quitting smoking
The colour associated with springtime is green!  By eating lots of leafy green vegetables like kale, spinach, bokchoy, swiss chard, and green onions we can help purify and move liver energy.

  2. If you make your body fit and live a happy life, then it is necessary that you quit smoking. Smoking increases many health risks and for that it is better that you should avoid taking tobacco cigarettes. I saw many people who died just because of tobacco smoking. I will share my views with you how I quit smoking and stay healthy. I quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes and after that day I cannot feel any problem with my health because it cannot contain tobacco which damages health.
