Your Spring Cleaning – How Acupuncture can help Northern Arizona be Healthier

Spring is the ideal time for cleansing and rejuvenation for overall health and well-being. As spring is represented by the wood element and includes the liver and its complementary organ, the gallbladder, these two organs are usually the primary targets for springtime cleansing and health regimens.

Eat Green

Green is the color of the liver and of springtime. Eating young plants — fresh, leafy greens, sprouts, green grapes and immature cereal grasses — can improve the liver’s overall functions and aid in the movement of Qi.

Get moving

Incorporate breathing exercises, stretching, qi gong, tai chi, yoga, light weightlifting, walking, meditation, or light cardio into your daily routine. Not only will you find it easier to lose those extra winter pounds, exercise can also improve your mood and increase energy. Do more outdoor activities Outside air helps liver Qi flow. If you have been feeling irritable, find an outdoor activity to smooth out that liver Qi stagnation. Try hiking or take up golf.

Enjoy milk thistle tea

Milk thistle helps protect liver cells from incoming toxins and encourages the liver to cleanse itself of damaging substances, such as alcohol, medications, pesticides, environmental toxins, and even heavy metals such as mercury.

Get Acupuncture treatments

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can help improve the overall health of your liver as well as treat stress, anger and frustration, which are often associated with liver qi disharmony.
