Spring is in the air. Seeds are sprouting, flowers are blooming and birds are chirping.

Welcome spring with open arms to shake yourself from your winter hibernation and lethargy. The season is calling as it is the time of the year to stimulate the flow of the Qi internally.

What is the Qi?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi is the “vital energy” stored in your liver. Our hectic lifestyles, improper diets, and our poor relationship with nature stagnate our liver, causing blockages with the flow of our Qi. It is when the flow of our Qi is blocked, is when we start to feel an imbalance within our system.

Let’s talk about a discomforting feeling that us women are all to familiar with: premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

According to the five element theory, these seven nourishing foods are recommended to be ingested during the spring high to help de-stagnate the liver, reducing the symptoms of PMS.

A mango for a snack can help you a lot with that and get you out of the menopause in a heartbeat!
