Detox to Give Yourself a Fresh Start

Jul 30, 2013 05:07PM

Are you ready for more energy, a better mental and emotional state and a renewed sense of awareness? Detoxification may well be the answer.
The main detoxification organ systems include liver, kidney/adrenal, lung/lymph, and digestive system. If weight loss is one of your goals, detoxing the organ systems must come first. A qualified Doctor of Oriental Medicine can work with you to make a personalized diagnosis and dietary treatment plan.
The liver organ system is key. According to Traditional Oriental Medicine, the liver functions include the smooth movement of Qi (Vital Energy) and blood, controlling and enhancing digestion, harmonizing the emotions, regulating and storing blood. It is manifested in the nails and eyes. Additionally, it rules the proper nourishment of ligaments and tendons, and, to some extent, muscles.
When this organ system is out of balance, a myriad of physical and emotional problems can ensue. These could include PMS, GYNO problems, mood swings, anger, depression, hypochondriac pain, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, headache, dizziness, fatigue, hypoglycemia, insomnia, skin problems, sexual dysfunction, infertility, anemia, convulsions, eye issues, dry cracked rigid nails, hepatitis, herpes, cancer, cysts, allergies, low immune function, tinnitus, and more.
