Spring Liver Cleanse Time with wonderful Sunrider

According to the Chinese, spring is the time to cleanse and nourish the liver!   Should you cleanse your liver?   In traditional Chinese five element theory, the liver and gallbladder are ruled by the wood element. The liver is seen as regulating the flow a chi (vital life force) and blood throughout the body, regulating normal digestion, and creating harmony of the emotions. Emotions of anger and frustration are often seen as “hot” or “stagnant” liver imbalances.

 History of The Liver Cleanse

There are few time-honored traditions in existence today as important as the spring liver cleanse. The liver cleanse has been seen as a vital part of health by almost every culture for over a 1,000 years. People often wonder why cultures ranging from China to Egypt to South America valued the liver cleanse.    The answer is clear – it is the foundation of a healthy body and mind!    Traditionally, liver cleanses were most often used to help purge the body of excess toxins and alleviate digestive problems from the heavy meals eaten during the winter months. Then many started to use olive oil and lemon juice followed up by Epson salts to cleanse gall stones and bile. Some old time cleanses may be too strong or even detrimental according to modern research.    However, it is easy to understand the importance of the liver in cleansing, because it serves as a filter for everything circulating in the blood. It has to break down hormones (testosterone, estrogen, etc.), detoxifies water and fat based soluble chemicals (including drugs, medications, pesticides, etc.), and neutralizes toxins. The liver even stores necessary vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, it also stores most toxins the body cannot breakdown.     Signs of liver imbalances that may indicate the need for cleansing:

  •  
    • PMS
    • Poor Digestion (Especially Fats)
    • Frustration & Anger
    • Chronic Stress
    • Chronic Allergies

    • Hormonal Imbalance
    • Poor Eyesight
    • Fatigue, Lowered Energy
    • Skin Problems (Rashes, Eczema, Acne)
    • Elevated Liver Enzymes
    • Constipation
    • Leaky Gut Syndrome
    • Toxins in the Environment
    • Frequent Alcohol Consumption
    • Headaches & Migraines
    • Pains In the Upper Back & Neck
