- feeling of having something in the throat;
- heaviness and tightness in chest;
- difficulty in breathing;
- asthma attack;
Emotional stress and tension. Emotional stress and tension blocks the movement of energy in the liver, which in turn can cause problems in different parts of the body. If the liver’s energy is trapped in the chest area, heaviness will occur in the chest, breathing will remain superficial and shortness of breath may occur.
Calming liver energy, restoring lungs energy movement. The main goal of treatment is to move the liver’s energy to the lungs. As long as the liver energy has stopped in the chest, the energy of the lungs cannot be mobilized and the symptoms of asthma do not go away.
Avoid foods that heat and block liver energy – alcohol, coffee, food additives, very spicy foods.
Use plums, radishes, celery, seaweed, sesame, crayfish, shrimps, rose hips, mandarin peel and a small amount of apple cider vinegar to calm down excessive liver energy.
Lightly spiced foods are suitable for moving the energy of the liver and lungs (too spicy raises the liver fire): ginger, garlic, pepper (in small quantities), radish and leek. Peppermint and chrysanthemum tea also reduce liver heat.
