Liver Meridian: 10 Natural Remedies to Boost Wellness

The liver (gan) is known as the 'general' of the zang organs which helps to work with the heart to control blood supply. 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this is a very popular meridian to favour a smooth flow of qi, with an aversion to stagnancy

So, here's how the liver can help re-connect your yin and yang... 

What is the liver meridian?

In the eyes of TCM, the ancient Chinese believed that the blood travelled through the vessels when the body was active, but was stored in the liver when resting. 

The liver has a smooth flow of qi which helps to avoid irregularity which may cause dysfunction such as indigestion or jaundice. 

It is believed that the spirit resides in the heart during the day and the liver at night when we sleep, with its state being assessed by dreams. This is why the liver is known to 'store the soul'. 

What are the functions of the liver?

Within the liver, the vital essence can produce many potential health boosting functions such as... 

  • Store blood
  • Regulate the flow of qi
  • Store the soul 
  • Control the tendons
  • Can be seen in the nails and is linked to the eyes 

Without this vital essence, the effects may turn to moodiness, anger and depression. 

What are the solutions?

Utilising Chinese herbal supplements is a fantastic and sustainable way to potentially boost your liver health through the meridians.
