According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, spring is the time that our liver needs extra attention!
When our liver isn’t working optimally, we can develop histamine reactions to (fermented foods, tomatoes, wheat, dairy, chocolate, wine and cured meats).

foggy brain and a fat gut.
Food is necessary for energy, cell regeneration and balancing the gut.
