Eat more liver-nourishing foods: Chinese medicine believes that green can enter the liver meridian, so you may want to eat more green beans, which can enter the liver meridian and achieve the effect of clearing heat and detoxifying and lowering fire. You can intake some supplement recommended by Chinese medicine such as 肝病中醫推薦保肝寧. Black beans, artemisia and red tilapia are all liver-nourishing foods that can be eaten more often.

More outdoor exercise: Exercise more often, such as brisk walking, running or cycling, can improve cardiopulmonary function and can accelerate blood circulation throughout the body, allowing the liver to receive sufficient blood and nutritional nourishment, which is conducive to liver cell repair and regeneration.

It is important to keep a positive attitude, listen to happy songs, talk to relatives and friends, and do more things that interest you, so that your body can relax. It is also a good idea to go to the hospital for liver function tests to detect liver abnormalities.

The liver has the role of storing blood and regulating the amount of circulating blood; when exercising, the liver will provide blood supply to other organs, which will not only nourish the internal meridians with qi and blood, but also play a role in regulating liver function. And walking, this aerobic exercise, will not increase the burden on the liver, but also can play a good exercise effect.

When you are not working or studying, take 5 minutes out of your day to do one of the simplest movements – stretching. It has the effect of opening up the meridians and harmonising the blood and qi, and will lift your spirits and make you twice as efficient at work. To do this, stand up straight, tilt your head back and extend your arms up and back as far as they will go, keeping the muscles in your upper body tense. Combine this with deep breathing to fill the body with more oxygen, and fatigue will immediately disappear, with the effect of nourishing the liver and slowing down ageing.

Drink lemon water  

Water helps to speed up the body’s metabolism and helps to flush out impurities and toxins from the body, thus reducing the burden on the liver. This is why it is recommended that you remember to drink a glass of warm plain water every morning after waking up to help wake up your whole body. If you can drink acid, it is advisable to add a few drops of lemon juice to the plain water, as the acidity of lemon encourages the liver to produce bile, which helps to detoxify the body.

Do a body massage

Once you are lying down, don’t rush off to sleep, but gently massage the right side of your body just below the rib cage. Doing so will improve blood circulation in the liver area, thus improving the metabolic function of the whole body. So please keep massaging your body before you go to bed.
