This is the time of the season when we do major cleaning in and around the house. But let’s talk about the house that lives inside of you. The most important organs to clean up are the liver and gallbladder. The liver is a vital organ and the gallbladder works as a partner. THE LIVER’S FUNCTIONS ARE:
  • Detoxing the bacteria from the blood
  • Regulates blood clotting, needed for healing after an injury 
  • Protein synthesis
  • Metabolism of glycogen storage used for energy
  • Hormone producing cholesterol(different from animal fat), a precursor of testosterone and estrogen 
  • Detoxifies harmful substances, like chemicals from foods and medications
  • Bile producing to carry waste products out of the liver
  • Breaks down large fat globules into smaller ones 
The gallbladder works in conjunction with the liver, is small and is not considered a major organ. The gallbladder’s job is mainly to aid in FAT DIGESTION and concentrates bile produced by the liver.  This simply means that without the gallbladder, the liver works overtime. Having to pick up the slack, the liver will become more tired and toxic and can’t work at 100% capacity.
This is the thing—our livers are under attack, even if we have our gallbladder! Without the liver cleansed AND the toxic foods eliminated, you don’t even have a chance of loosing the body fat that’s stored in your tissues and around your organs.  It wasn’t meant for us to have all this toxic overload of waste for our bodies to struggle with.  And did you know that over eating stresses the liver, making the liver store fat. And don’t  get fooled by the word “FAT” because over eating carbohydrates also are stored as fat!!  Sorry to disappoint you. You can protect your liver by doing these things DAILY……     
  • Juice an organic lemon and drink with an 8 oz. cup of warm distilled water upon arising every morning
  • Eat organic produce (fruits and vegetables)
  • Cut out sugar, artificial sweeteners and avoid high-fructose corn syrup replacing with stevia, honey, 100% maple syrup (sparingly though) and agave (a sweetener made from cactus plant)
  • Drink pure water, at least 50% of your desired body weight in ounces
  • Eat free range eggs , free range meats and ocean caught scale fish (they’re free range too)
  • Take an enzyme with 1-2 meals a day or eat an organic salad daily
  • Do not overeat, causing food to be stored as fat and not used for energy
  • Drink herbal teas for liver cleansing such as Everyday Detox by Traditional Medicinal Organic ginger tea, Organic turmeric, products with Milk thistle and Dandelion root. Chicory acts as a mild laxative and diuretic and helps take some burden off the liver
  • Avoid processed foods like lunch meats and hot dogs
  • Avoid fried foods which suppress and damage the liver
  • Avoid hydrogenated oils that are used in fried foods and other packaged food, checking ingredient labels
  • Get all the information on medication, even over the counter meds can have some adverse effect on the liver
  • Drink ORGANIC coffee
When your liver is cleared of toxins, your skin, hair and energy will improve. If this new’s note has helped you and you’re thinking of someone who needs it, please email them a copy.
