Sometimes it is very useful for you to learn how your lifestyle choices can impact on your health. Then you can decide whether you are ready to make some changes, or whether you need more time to think. Often, just being aware is enough to help you to see how you can influence your own health, without having to make radical changes.
For example, stress or frustration can stop the “Liver” energy from flowing properly. The Liver energy can get stuck and then impact the digestive system, leading to symptoms like wind, diarrhoea or poor appetite. In this case, lifestyle advice would mean educating you about this link, so that you can think about whether there are areas in your life that cause you frustration, and whether you are able to change them.
On the other hand, if something else has caused your Liver energy to become stuck, then this can actually cause you to feel the emotion of frustration. In this case, using herbs or acupuncture to free the Liver can then lead to freedom from frustration.
