7 Lessons to Love Your Liver
Anger and other negative emotions affects our behavior, life, liver and loved ones. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the liver is associated with holding anger. Anger is a big reason many people indulge in unhealthy things like alcohol, cigarettes, drugs and fast foods which are harmful and overwork the liver. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Ho’oponopono are great ways to release anger which help your life and liver be happy and healthy.
Cleanse and detox the liver are important habits to embrace to help avoid and eliminate harmful substances. Consuming plenty of clean water, fresh vegetable juices and herbal teas are great ways to cleanse our system. There are also many ways to help detox our gallbladder, liver, and kidneys so our elimination systems work even better. We want to get the toxins out as fast as possible so following the practices our our ancestors and using activated charcoal, calcium bentonite clay, mineral baths and salt water may be helpful suggestions.
Energy meridians are well documented in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda the ancient life wisdom of India. There are many techniques to keep this energy flowing to prevent problems from energy stagnation such as: acupressure, acupuncture, deep breathing (pranayama), massage, meditation, and yoga.
Health hazards like artificial food additives and sweeteners, chemicals, herbicides, heavy metals, pesticides, petroleum products, prescription drugs, processed oils (canola, corn, soy & vegetable), and toxic compounds create a massive burden for the liver to process. When the liver is overloaded the body may have to store these toxins in fat tissue which allows them to do more damage. Disease can be described as the body being deprived of vital nutrition and overwhelmed by harmful toxins
Herbs and supplements are great ways to fortify the liver and help it repair. Burdock root, dandelion, elderberries, garlic, ginger, milk thistle, nettles and turmeric are just a few of the herbs that many find to be helpful with liver TLC.
OTC and prescription medicines have many adverse reactions and side effects which can harm our body and especially the liver. Since the liver serves to break down all medicines and toxins it is easy to see how all these chemical compounds can cause destruction and wreak havoc on our liver which results is a lower ability to help detox our body.
Our liver can actually heal and regrow new tissue even after it has been damaged. They can even remove part of your liver and it will regrow. That is how important our liver is in helping our body break down toxins and restore our body to health and vitality.
Billions of dollars are spent on cancer and chronic disease that could very well be the result of a sick and weak liver. More research could be devoted to the benefits of medicinal herbs and plants instead of using synthetic drugs with side effects. Maybe as we become better educated and informed about the benefits of natural remedies and therapies we may discover that more TLC for our liver is the most cost effective and safe way to avoid many cancers and chronic diseases. My goal in sharing the many benefits of liver TLC is to help more people prevent disease.
