Wood & Health
Liver and gallbladder organs are connected with the element of wood. Thus, when the liver is out of balance, the person can be very resistant and become a ‘stick in the mud’ type of person, who finds it hard to uproot themselves and adapt to changes of any kind. Thus they can be inflexible, irritable and nervous and even become angry.
When someone has liver blockages and or weakness, they can get eye problems, nail problems, sinew, and ligament problems, as well as liver diseases like Jaundice, twitching, and sharp headaches. Issues with their bodies are often primarily on the right side, and problems and pains will move around the body like the wind moves, and they will generally be experiencing a lack of flow and smoothness in their lives.
Anger and frustration accompany the Wood type whenever they feel blocked or their plans thwarted. If the liver Qi becomes stagnant it may manifest as pain or distention in the flanks, swollen or painful breasts and genitals, or lower-abdominal pain. If the liver loses its harmonious movement it can move in the wrong direction and invade the Stomach and Spleen. This may be accompanied by such digestive problems as abdominal pain, nausea, belching, intestinal rumbling and diarrhea.
Bile is necessary for the digestion of foods and fluids. If the liver cannot perform its spreading and flowing activities, bile production may be disrupted, causing symptoms such as jaundice, bitter taste in the mouth, vomiting of yellow fluid, distention of the flanks, or loss of appetite.
