Liver & Your Overall Health

Did you know that the liver can have lost up to 2/3’s of its normal efficiency and still perform normally?

Your liver is such an extraordinary organ; it performs over 600 vital functions in your body. It regulates most chemical levels in the blood. Here are some of its functions:

  • Produces bile to break down fats & eliminate fat-soluble toxins end excess substances
  • Regulates sex hormone levels & eliminates excess hormones
  • Produces cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fats through the body
  • Converts excess glucose into glycogen for storage (glycogen can later be converted back to glucose for energy)
  • Stores vitamins & minerals, such us iron
  • Filters blood, regulates blood clotting & storing extra blood for quick release
  • Converts poisonous ammonia to urea (urea is an end product of protein metabolism and is excreted in the urine)
  • Metabolizes drugs & breaks down alcohol
  • Resists infections by producing immune factors and removing bacteria from the bloodstream

If the liver becomes overburdened because of insufficient nutrients, the toxins or waste build up and the excess can escape back into the body leading to serious health concerns.

Liver congestion is a major problem with nearly every person who seeks out aid from a health professional for most issues, yet the liver congestion is rarely addressed. This is why most people with chronic health conditions are merely managing their symptoms rather than restoring the body’s normal physiology and seeing true freedom from chronic disease.

Furthermore, for those seeking to optimize their health, the old adage of “an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure” truly applies here.  Chronic liver congestion takes years before becoming apparent and before the real damage becomes apparent.

As your liver becomes stressed, symptoms of liver toxicity may begin to become noticeable. When the liver is not working “efficiently”, it gets “backed up“. Some of the common potential symptoms of the liver not functioning optimally include:

  • Digestive problems include burping, bloating, intestinal gas, abdominal discomfort or pain, and undigested food substances in the stool.
  • Food allergies or sensitivities
  • Chemical sensitivities such as reactions to gasoline, cleaning agents, soaps, cosmetics and perfumes.
  • Rashes and various types of skin problems or reactions
  • Eye problems such as blurred vision, eye floaters, twitching, eye pain, decreasing in eyesight or eyesight clarity.
  • Difficulty sleeping – especially falling asleep or waking up prematurely ­­
  • Tendon or muscle problems such as frequent sprains, strains, muscle injuries, or slow muscle healing
  • Menstrual or menopausal problems
  • Headaches (especially pain at the vertex of the head or throbbing headaches.)

Let’s discuss some of the steps you can take to help your liver function at its optimum level.

On the market you will find many liver cleanse products, one thing I would like for you to keep in mind that cleansing your liver is a process that you have to lead up to. You can’t be eating  donuts one day & decide to do a liver cleanse the next day. You’ll be putting too much stress on your digestive system & detox organs.

To do a proper liver cleanse you need to:

1.    Clean up your eating habits, you all know what foods you should & shouldn’t be eating. You know so much about this that I think each of you can write a bookJ

2.    Reduce exposure to toxic chemicals, this means starting to use chemical free personal care products since many of them contain hormones that can interfere with proper liver function. Learn about your products here

3.    Start with Wild pollen/Canadian honey recipe

4.    Start doing something relaxing 5-15 minutes every day. It could be meditating, walking, sitting in a dark quiet room, doing yoga, etc. Do what relaxes you. According to Ancient Chinese Medicine if you or someone you know has excessive anger issues then your liver function is compromised.

5.    After finishing with Wild pollen/Canadian honey start on Mini Liver Flush
