The Law of the Five Elements is based on 5,000 years of Chinese Medicine. The five elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Air/Metal and IWater.
The cycles of the seasons are times of the year when you focus on feeding different organ systems.
Spring is the Season of Wood
The description of the tree is also a description of a person.
The organs associated with Wood are the gall bladder and the liver. I especially take these foods at this cycle of the season. I personally take this to strengthen my gall bladder and my liver.
This is my favorite formula in the Springtime. It is a Chinese formula called Mood Elevator (Jie Yu - Regulates Chi). It uplifts my spirits, helps with sleeplessness, anxiety and depression.
An American hebal formula that I have taken for my liver is BPX (Blood Purifier). It is excellent for skin problems such as acne and liver spots. It detoxifies the liver.
