10 Signs Your Liver Might be Stressed

Posted by

Did You Know?

Your liver is one hard-working trooper!! People usually think of alcohol as the main cause to a stressed liver, but that is only a drop in the bucket of what your liver deals with every day. In fact, it has 400 functions to keep you healthy! Here are the biggies:

Your liver's main jobs:

1. It cleans toxins from your blood (this is where alcohol comes in). It's mind blowing to look at how many other toxins we're exposed to every day.... The American food supply contains about 3,200 chemical food additives, we breathe smoggy air, we're exposed to pesticides, flame retardants, plastics, formaldehyde.... and don't even get me started on chem trails!

2. It helps you digest fats and absorb certain vitamins like A, D, E and K by producing bile to break down fats.

3. It helps you avoid "the crash" that comes when you miss a meal by releasing an emergency store of energy.

10 signs your liver needs a cleanse:

Digestive discomfort or bloating

Food cravings

Brain fog/memory problems

Congested sinuses/fluid retention

Trouble losing weight

Skin rashes or itching

Fatigue not relieved by more sleep

Overheating or excessive sweating

Mood swings or irritability

Suboptimal immune function

And Bonus Sign #11.... Hemorrhoids

Basically, we should all cleanse our livers on a regular basis to stay healthy.

My famous Gentle Liver Cleanse

I've recommended this cleanse for decades and it gives great results! It is safe for anyone who doesn't have active gallbladder problems and it can be done once a quarter. (There are also deeper cleanses that can be done under the supervision of practitioners like myself and Dr JeNeen.) Here's the recipe for the Gentle Liver Cleanse:

  • Grate 1 cup of raw (organic if possible) beets. Add 2 tablespoons of either flax seed oil or extra virgin olive oil along with the juice of ½ a fresh lemon. Keep refrigerated.
  • Stir this mixture and eat 1 teaspoon every 1 to 2 waking hours for 2 to 3 days. Make a new supply when needed.
  • After the first 2 to 3 days, eat 1 tablespoon of the mixture 3 times a day for one week.

Here's a hint for those who don't want to deal with the staining of grating your own beets: Many Whole Foods markets have grated organic raw beets on their salad bar. Happy cleansing!
