Seasonal Allergies: Tips and Tricks

Allergy season in the NW has officially started.  If you are feeling the symptoms here are a few tips to get you through...

1) Before bed wash your face and hair: Allergens, like pollen that are blowing around outside stick to our hair, clothes, and face.  Before bed, wash out these allergens so that your body's immune system isn't stuck fighting them all night long.

Spring and the liver

n Chinese Medicine, Spring is associated with the element of Wood. The liver and gallbladder are the wood organs and benefit from detoxification especially during this time of year.  The emotion of the liver is irritability, anger and frustration.  The emotion of the gallbladder is decisiviness, or, when out of balance, indecision.  There are many ways you can support a healthy cleanse of your liver. Acupuncture and supplements are a big way that Vitalize can help you have a healthful Spring. On your own, in your daily health regimen include more dark leafy greens.  Nettles, dandelion greens and burdock root are three really great options that are at their peak during the Spring season.
