Is Your Liver Healthy

From the perspective of Chinese medicine, "the liver is corresponding the eyes", if:
- If the liver fire is exuberant, your eyes will be red and dry
- Insufficient liver blood will cause poor vision and dry eyes
- People with yellow eyes are mostly related to liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that the liver is responsible for the tendons, and "reflect is in the nails." The health of the nails is also closely related to the liver because the nails depend on the liver's essence and blood.
The theory of traditional Chinese medicine believes that hair is an extension of blood. Therefore, the health of the hair can also reflect the health of the liver. Older people have insufficient liver blood and kidney qi deficiency, and the hair becomes pale and thin, and people with anemia also will lose hair frequently.
