It's spring and I feel more vibrant 😁
The energy of spring is associated with the wood element, that's the liver, the gall bladder and the eyes, in Chinese 'med'. A 'healthy' liver differs from person to person, it depends on many factors. So to simplify it the best action to take is to eat much more greens. Not all greens are created equal and some contain compounds which can create a negative effect especially in excess.
Steamed broccoli and kale, not surprisingly, are at the top of the list but these both contain a sulphur compound when uncooked which isn't ideal. Wheatgrass is on another level, it contains enough potassium for your daily requirements whereas a banana contains less than 10%.. if you ate 10 bananas you wouldn't be in balance. Potassium is necessary for a healthy heart and salt clears potassium out of your body.. be aware.
Rather than simply adding extra greens try substituting the extras for the serve of carbs at night. Carbs = energy.. while you sleep you won't need that extra energy and chances are that you're gonna load up the carbs for brekky anyway so you're fine! Add a dash of olive oil or ghee and sea salt to your steamed greens and you'll get the added benefits of good fats.
Avoid cheap fats like vegetable oil canola oil and margarine because chances are that you're getting too much in your diet already and these are clinically proven to cause inflammation. Not only that but they oxidize very quickly creating free radicals which disrupt DNA. Thirdly poor soy quality has been clinically proven to mimic estrogen in the body and when estrogen is high serious illnesses are more likely to develop or grow.
So spring detoxing is simple. Just increase your greens and healthy fats. Decrease carbs at night and cut out vegetable oils/margarine.
Wheatgrass is absorbed better with a natural source of vitamin c. I like to have it with Camu Camu, acai powder, cherry juice or pomegranate powder 🌱🍒🍓🍍🍋🍊 Liver & Gall bladder emotion - anger
