Late Winter into Early Spring

As the daffodils bloom, the mustard and acacia turn yellow and we have balmy days to revel in, we turn ourselves towards spring.

In traditional Chinese Medical theory each major organ rules a season, has a flavor and a color. The liver rules springtime.  The flavor of the liver is sour; the color is green.  The liver rules the eyes, ligaments and tendons.  It is the boss of all the other organs.  It is responsible for cleansing our blood and regulates a lot of hormones.  Headaches, fertility, menstrual and menopausal problems, control issues, anger, irritability, eye problems, tendinitis, breast issues and sighing are all signs that your liver needs attention.  This spring newsletter is focusing on the menstrual cycle; however, if you are troubled by any of the issues I have just named now is the time to start gearing up and attending to your liver.  Considering the fact that we live in an agricultural area that uses herbicide, pesticide and fungicide on a regular basis, this is appropriate health maintenance for all.

Acupuncture and herbs are remarkably helpful for liver issues and the results are often quite rapid and dramatic.  In order to help with spring cleansing, Harmony is offering the following specials:
