Weight gain, chronic fatigue, depression, irritability, abdominal pain and swelling, hormonal imbalances and digestive complaints along with food sensitivities are all potential signs of “Liver Overload “.
Toxins build up and are not able to be released from your body through normal channels.
“De-tox” and learning how to not “Re-tox’ is the answer!
Your liver, the “king” of all your glands, is vitally complex with over 500 life-sustaining functions. It contains about 1/4 of all the circulating blood in your body and is the only organ that can regenerate itself!
Cleansing your blood, metabolizing alcohol, converting food into the building blocks that you need to make new cells and maintaining life energy….your liver is always “on” and working for you!!
Your liver not only clears out the toxins from what we eat but everything we are exposed to on a daily basis. The list is endless – personal care products, farming chemicals (especially here in Wisconsin where the fields are in our backyard), chemical food additives, medications, car exhaust….. We can’t remove everything but we can support the liver to detoxify and clear out these chemicals.
Food play a major role in supporting the liver – give your liver what it needs:
- Sulfur-containing foods like garlic, onions and eggs
- Use herbs and spices like turmeric, cinnamon, licorice root, curcumin and artichoke
- Broccoli, Kale, Cabbage, Brussels sprouts – all of the cruciferous vegetable family
- Use multiple vitamin supplement that is high in B-vitamins and other nutrients like choline and inositol which help prevent fat accumulation and maintains cholesterol balance.
Be a “Liver- Lover”…. De-tox and give it the TLC and support that it needs to keep you healthy, vibrant and living a full life. Join us in April for our Detox workshop where we truly learn how to cleanse the liver!
