From the study of Ayurvedic medicine + Chinese philosophy...
Spring is a time of birth and new beginnings. The 𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐨𝐨𝐝 is associated with spring and living, growing entities: trees, plants, and the human body.
The bodily organ systems related to the wood element are 𝐋𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐆𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐛𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐫 (their job is to detoxify the blood and make bile to help metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.)
To support liver functioning, think spring cleaning
🌱Drink plenty of fluids, add lemon to your drinking water to help detoxify the liver
🌱Try eating light, raw foods such as greens, sprouts, fruits, nuts, seeds and celery
🌱Avoid heavy or fried foods, anything with chemical additives or alcohol
🌱Since exercise and sweating aid liver detoxification, spring is a great time to create a workout plan or ramp up your current routine
🌱Wood governs the early hours of the morning. Just as morning is a great time to plan the day ahead, spring is a great time to look at your life and where you want to be in the future. Take a little time to write a new health/life plan, including goals for how you wish to feel and what you would like to do and see happen.
