Elements of Meridian Systems Yoga

Partner Organs: Liver and Gallbladder



Liver Meridian

The Liver is a Yin organ. It is considered as a “general of an army”, an organ of foresight, vision and planning. The Liver regulates the volume of blood and Qi of the body and plans all the body’s functions by directing Qi to all its parts. The Liver harmonizes the Qi and blood of the whole body, resulting in good vision, healthy menstruation, overall emotional balance, flexibility and decisiveness. When the Liver is in disharmony, one is likely to experience migraine headaches muscle cramps and weakness, poor vision, menstrual problems, dry hair and skin, anger, jealousy, agitation.



Gallbladder Meridian

The Gallbladder is Yang in nature. It stores and secretes bile, which assists the Spleen, Stomach, Small Intestine, and Large Intestine in the process of digestion. Emotionally, it corresponds to courage and decision-making. The Liver makes plans and the Gallbladder takes initiative and executes them. Disharmony of the Gallbladder could show up as timidity or indecisiveness in the case of deficiency, or as recklessness and bullheadedness in the case of excess.
