SEASONAL HEALTH NOTES:

Spring is liver time based on the 5 element theory in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It is
easy to feel anger or restricted, sometimes you can feel distending discomfort at the ribcage
area, sometimes you feel you sigh more, or want a deep breath. It is the signal that your liver
energy (liver Qi) is not moving smoothly. If you feel discomfort, first think how grateful you are
compared to a lot of other people.  Second, if you dislike someone’s (such as your boss or
your family members’) decision or action, you can rethink how would you solve the problem
if you were him or her. This can be called switch position thinking.  When you position
yourself in the opposite position, you may think differently, which will help you to forgive him
or her and move forward easily.  Third, if neither of them helped, you can practice the yelling
technique that you learned or you can learn from our clinic.  Basically you stand loosely with
feet separated at shoulder-width, palms up and face out, stare out of your eye balls, and yell
hard 2 to 3 times.  Then do 2-3 normal deep breathes.  You will feel better by yelling out.  
You can stop by the clinic if you still have questions about the yelling
