Spring and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Pacific College of Oriental Medicine announced today the importance of cleansing during spring. With an abundance of allergies during springtime, it is important to cleanse the lungs and liver.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is the Five Element Theory, which serves as a major diagnostic and treatment tool. This theory consists of five elements and their relationship with nature.

Spring is associated with the Wood element, which governs the liver and gall bladder. Strong winds, typical during spring, could over-strengthen the liver, which in turn could affect the spleen. If so, a disharmony of the liver and spleen occurs with symptoms such as stomach pain, acid regurgitation, stomach distention and diarrhea.

Allergy problems are abundant during spring. If the liver is not healthy, it could affect the spleen and the lungs. Chest congestion, sneezing, running nose, itching eyes and other symptoms could occur. It is very important during spring to cleanse the liver and lungs to bring a balance among them in order to alleviate those symptoms. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help to accomplish this balance.

TCM practitioners believe that a person should cater his or her diet to the seasons. There are many foods serving the purpose of soothing and cleansing the liver. Green and leafy vegetables, especially if the plants are young, help by cleansing and freshening the body. They benefit the liver's overall well-being. Dandelion also works well as a spring cleanser. A balanced diet with a variety of juices such as citrus fruits, pear, apple, celery and carrot is very helpful. Sprouts from seeds such as beans, mung, and radish are valuable for spring use, as well.
