In Chinese medicine, each season is associated with a specific physiological system. Spring is the time when the liver/gall bladder are most active in ridding toxins (and even emotions) that have accumulated over the winter. 'Anger' and 'frustration' are emotions associated with the liver, so a cleanse can help to relieve issues in this area as well.
There are a multitude of options in terms of cleanses. The one your friend or co-worker is doing may not be ideal for you, so be sure to take your personal lifestyle and body type into consideration. If you would like guidance in planning a cleanse, please feel free to set up an appointment and we can design a plan for your constitution. For those who already have a plan, come in for a couple treatments - acupuncture is a great addition, as it can aid the detoxification process and reduce cravings.
