Did you know that you don't have to accept allergies into being part of your life every year when Spring rolls around? If you constantly suffer from seasonal allergies, your body is giving you a loud cry that one or a combination of organs are imbalanced or have an energy deficiency.

This energy deficiency can be related to the Kidney, Liver, Lung or Stomach. You'll know which organ is predominantly deficient due to experiencing more symptoms related to one specific organ. A common symptom for allergies are red and itchy eyes. Since the Liver governs the eye, you already know which organ your symptoms are speaking to. Another clue would be the season you suffer from allergies. Spring is the corresponding season to the Liver so your body is wanting you to pay attention to those signs. All allergies in general, including food allergies, have the root problem of a clogged Liver.

Hijama, acupuncture and Chinese herbs are preventative and healing for allergies. Building your vital energy helps to strengthen and cleanse your Liver. Taking Liver herbs is imperative to this cycle of clearing a stagnant energy.

One of the best things you can do for your Liver is to start your day by drinking warm water with fresh squeezed lemon juice first thing in the morning. This tonic is an easy way to clear out the toxins that accumulated over night when your Liver was working double time to clean your blood.

To strengthen and regenerate your Liver, stop eating 3 hours before you go to sleep. Late eating creates stagnation because the Liver won't have the vital energy to repair during the night. Do not over eat. Focus on eating fresh and alkaline foods, and easy to digest foods. Eating wild salmon, broccoli, dandelion greens, broccoli and aubergine are great in Spring to help Liver function.

To further help your Liver vitality practice patience and forgiveness. Have compassion and try to let go of resentment. The Liver is hurt by negative feelings and holding onto the past. Strive to be free of these emotions, as anger keeps us stuck in all ways. Practice mindfulness and breath work.

Green is the colour associated with the Liver so go to a park and rest in the grass. Top up on goji berries, which is a tonic for Liver blood.
