It is Important to Love Your Liver.
This week I wanted to talk about one of most important organs that does not get the Love it deserves most of the time..we tend to take it for granted! I also want to share my favorite way to support your Liver. To me this should be added to your basic daily support along side Minerals, Omega’s, Antioxidants, Vita D, etc
Staying healthy and well is all about balance and it has become more and more challenging.
From cleaning chemicals and hair products to air pollution, toxic foods and heavy metals, we’re dealing with an unprecedented influx of environmental toxins on a daily basis. Not to mention adding emotional stress into to the mix.
As the primary detox organ, the liver has the critical job of filtering these unwanted compounds and preparing them for elimination. Making sure the liver and other detox organs are functioning optimally is key to holistically supporting the body’s natural detox pathways. When the Liver is not working well it can lead to all kinds of Metabolic Problems!
When faced with so many chemicals, pollutants, and toxins, the liver can become overloaded and instead of eliminating toxins it recycles them. This is what it might feel like. You feel toxic, swollen or a little off and not quite yourself. You might struggle with PMS or hormonal symptoms. Perhaps you might even feel a little irritable, grumpy or angry or triggered easily. Check out this post for more on signs and symptoms your Liver is not happy!
If you have any of these symptoms then it could be a sign that you could review and reduce your toxic load and use some support. That is where one of my favorite herbs come in. It is Milk Thistle.
Milk Thistle can help to protect, support, and even rejuvenate the liver, so it can filter and remove unwanted toxins.
