Many of you may be familiar with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In TCM, it’s believed that spring is a time of renewal. It’s also the perfect time to cleanse the liver.
What I find fascinating about TCM is every season has a color, a flavor, a natural element, and an organ that is dominant during that time.
Spring is the green season, when bitter flavors like dandelion greens are prominent and the wood element governs.

It even affects our motivation level. Let’s look at how your liver and gallbladder affect your total body health.
