Does stress affect your liver health?
Manage your stress correctly
This global pandemic has not only threatened our health but also disrupted our daily routine and social life. This has inevitably affected our emotions and triggered anxiety. In order to relieve stress, we should also soothe the liver. But how does stress affect the health of our liver?
According to Chinese Medicine, the liver governs our emotions, and any negative emotions would hurt the liver. The liver ensures the circulation of the Meridians, and if the organ is disrupted, we will experience emotional distress, headache, stomachache, insomnia, difficulty passing stools, flatulence, and constant burping and sigh.
Basically, ‘soothing the liver’ in Cantonese describes methods that can help us de-stress and improve our emotional well-being. By doing so, our liver can perform its functions more efficiently.
When we are stressed, we will experience the stagnation of the qi. This has to do with the changes in our emotions as well. Besides learning to manage our emotions and relieve stress, we can also consume ingredients that can improve the circulation of the qi. These ingredients are white radish, dried citrus peel, five-finger fig root and kumquat. We can also opt for floral tea such as rose, jasmine, bergamot and chamomile, as they can help improve the circulation of the qi and blood as well as clear the stagnation in the liver.
When we are reaching our breaking point, try massaging the He Gu and Tai Chong acupoints, as it can help improve the circulation of the qi and blood, regulate our emotions, and relieve stress symptoms like headache, dizziness, red eyes, and pain in the eyes.
