Chinese medicine offers an interesting insight into liver and gallbladder conditions and appears to have a greater understanding of the complexities of symptoms. The organs of the body are associated with our health, vigour, temperament and emotional outlook.
Psychological imbalances caused by gallbladder problems are stated to be indecision; lack of creativity; overwork, attention to detail; frustration, impatience and constant irritation. The liver can be responsible for over control or feeling of being out of control; excessive planning, inflexibility, frustration, repression; temper tantrums.
If one can restore the full function and balance of the organs then it is believed calm will return to our emotions.
are quite rare but food intolerance
is one of the modern surges of our society. It is argued that the liver gets overloaded by our modern diet, our hurried lives and the low level contact of dilute poisons in our food, drinking water, the air we breath, etc. We start to get picky about what we can eat and start to collect a whole host of what we call food allergies
. They are not 'true' allergies, they are a sign that the liver isn't able to mop up the bi-products of digestion because this function has already been depleted. Opening the liver ducts allows the liver to detoxify naturally. Together with life-changes, the food intolerance
are diminished and in time may disappear.
