The place where disease manifests within the organ system is deeply significant. This is the site of conflict, but where there is conflict there is also the opportunity for resolution – and in resolution lies cure.
The liver is the focus of the second volume in the series Organ – Conflict – Cure by Rosina Sonnenschmidt. The author shows us the energetic significance of the liver discussing its symbolism, the liver temperament and spiritual matters whilst outlining the place of the liver in the historical context of alchemy and its importance in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The issues associated with the liver are ‘acquired authority’ – the personal power that one develops in the course of one’s life – creativity, humour and drive. If the energy of the liver is suppressed, for example by low self-esteem, the result can be aggression and a wide variety of physical conditions ranging from rheumatism and diabetes to cirrhosis of the liver.
As well as providing detailed information about the structure, function and pathology of the liver, the author gives much invaluable practical advice on treating liver and gallbladder complaints based on her many years as a holistic therapist.
Areas covered include:
- deacidification and detoxification
- herbal remedies
- cleansing the liver and gallbladder
- extensive section on homeopathic therapeutic remedies
Many schools of thought are drawn on throughout the book, the emphasis being on the miasmatic point of view. This is a comprehensive and fascinating book that deals with every aspect of the liver in an easily accessible style.
