Liver and Spring Cleansing Protocol:
In Traditional Chinese Medicine the Liver functional system is associated with the Spring Season and the element of Wood. The Liver is considered to be the master organ of healing in the body and described as “the root of all endurance”. A healthy Liver system allows us to keep our physical and emotional energy alive and well. It is the strategizer and the planner, it is the system that gives us the ability to continue even in the face of adversity, the ability to “keep hope alive”. The Liver also plays a key role in healthy and restorative sleep, which is when our bodies do most of the healing work. It is said that the Liver “stores the blood” at night when we rest and it is where “the life force is stored”so having a healthy Liver system is key to a good night’s rest.
The Chinese Zodiac animal, the Ox, is also associated with the Liver, with its qualities being the ability to do hard work, to endure, to push against the grain and its symbolism in the Chinese written language is strongly associated with the female archetype of hormonal and reproductive power with women’s ability to give birth and overcome that difficulty.
