Spring Cleaning: Liver Detox

With the increasing sunlight and (slightly) warmer temperatures of spring you may have noticed that your sleep, energy and even cravings have changed. In the spring season, more Qi or energy, floods through our liver system, naturally changing body functions.
In Chinese medicine, wood represents liver function: “Wood is forceful and determined as the wind, as supple as a spreading aspen stretching into a bright, cloudless sky.”
Wood, or the liver system, has the power to instigate […]

Measuring Our Body’s Ability to Detoxify

A recent report from the Institute of Functional Medicine, estimates that 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds and pollutants from plastics, pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, medications, and other sources are released into the environment each year.  Eventually, these toxins find their way into our air, soil, food, water supplies, and into our bodies.

Our Solar-Powered Bodies

In the movie, Superman soars above the clouds and recovers his (super)powers while basking in sunlight. I often think of this movie clip when it’s sunny outside because I too feel energized by sunlight. Is that the effect of vitamin D? Or does sunlight activate another process?
Here’s an interesting study supporting our Superman-like ability to use sunlight to regenerate and heal:
A 2014 study found when animals ate chlorophyll-rich foods, they generated energy (ATP) directly from sunlight (1). There […]
