Liver Flow is a Wood phase prescription focusing on Wood's relationship with the Earth phase via the ke/restraining cycle. When this dynamic is disturbed, the resulting zang-fu patterns are "Liver Qi invading the Stomach," or "Liver Qi invading the Spleen." These patterns are prevalent in modern life, with the undue amount of speed and stress in our lives. Disturbances of normal life rhythms will disrupt the coursing and smooth flow of the Liver Qi causing stagnation and oppression. When this stagnation builds up, it will counterflow and disturb the chest, abdomen or Stomach. Liver Flow calms and courses the Liver Qi, restoring harmony between Wood and Earth. This prescription is also useful for chronic Shao Yang (Gallbladder/Triple Warmer) patterns with bitter taste, rib-side pain, alternating heat and chills and nausea and fatigue
