Keep Your Liver Healthy, It Will Keep You Healthy

People often forget how hard working and important the liver is it helps in digestion, energy and cleansing. The liver stores vitamins, minerals, and sugar that fuels your body, helping it get rid of toxins. Our modern lifestyle can put a lot of stress on the liver, the negative effects of alcohol, cigarette, chemicals in animal products, free radicals, food preservatives, dyes, pesticides, cosmetics, household products, chemicals, and prescription medicines.
There are many issues that can happen to a congested liver. One is hepatitis A to C. They are viruses that cause your body to attacks its own tissues, doing damage to your liver. Some hepatitis can even last a lifetime. You can help your liver fight off this disease and others through preventive measures like:
Diet, Alcohol and Caffeine Do not take anything that you are intolerant to, alcohol or caffeine go straight to the stomach and liver - try to cut back on these stimulants. Chew your food well to aid in the digestive process. Cut back on sugar and salt replacing with stevia, agave and honey.
Hydrate - Drink plenty of spring water daily. Water cleanses you from within.
Antioxidants - Eat foods that are rich in antioxidants like cabbage, broccoli, kale, sprouts, and organic soy bean products. These are rich in vitamins C, E, B, zinc, and magnesium. Antioxidants stop free radicals from damaging your tissue.
Herbal Remedies - Milk thistle is the herb for the liver, cleansing and repairing. Also dandelion root and artichoke help and are great blood cleansers.
Avoid Antibiotics or Antacids - Antibiotics destroy the good bacteria which helps your gut eliminate toxins. Antacids reduce your body's natural acid that helps in proper digestion. Take these only if really necessary, otherwise there are natural substitutes.
Activated Charcoal - Activated charcoal absorbs toxin it binds to. Twice a week on an empty stomach is a good weekly cleanse.
Exercise Gentle exercise helps your lymphatic system. Sweating and urinating encourages the liver to get rid of toxins or waste products from your body. Deep breathing helps to allow more oxygen to your blood removing toxins and carbon dioxide, in turn speeding up blood circulation.
Keep your liver healthy for good energy, good metabolism, good heath and happiness!
