Love Your Liver: Spring & the Wood Element

Heal & Support your Liver & Gall Bladder for Optimum Health

“Getting to the root of liver imbalance is a matter of understanding the fundamental cause of all disease.”

— Paul Pitchford, Healing with Whole Foods

Love Your Liver: Spring & the Wood Element will benefit individuals, health care providers, and herbal practitioners alike in a holistic understanding of the liver and gallbladder’s vital role in health and disease. The Wood Element is one of five elements in an energetic model of healing corresponding with the liver and gallbladder. Wood is the most out of balance element in the modern person. This course examines how liver imbalance manifests, how it affects our ability to function, and how to restore it. Spring is one of the best times to address liver health, especially if you are experiencing stagnation in any area of your life.

Love Your Liver: Spring & the Wood Element teaches about the physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological issues related to the Wood Element. There is no better time than now to study our relationship with the Wood Element. Empowered people make empowered choices and nowhere can this be seen more powerfully than in the choices that affect health and well-being. When we marry the best of our current models of medicine with the healing modalities of the ancients, a new system emerges: one in which the whole person is seen in the light of a new understanding .
