7 Tips For A Healthy Liver


The liver is a large organ under your ribs responsible for the food digestion and to get rid of all the toxins in the body. It plays a great role in the hormonal balance too while that is the place where the excessive estrogen is removed from the body, for example. In order to keep your liver healthy, you will need to check and change if needed your diet and lifestyle.

1. Choose your food carefully

While the liver is one of the organs participating actively in the digestion process, you need a balanced diet in order to support it. The fiber in the fruits, vegetables and grains is important for digestion and will decrease the load on your liver. Avoid over-eating and high calories meals, too much refined carbohydrates and trans fat (deep-fried foods, margarine, etc.). Be careful when eating raw fish or shellfish, they may contain parasites which will attack the liver or other organs. Keep well-hydrated with pure water as if your body is dehydrated, it will be hard for the toxins to be eliminated from the blood or the lymph. 

2. Maintain a healthy weight

It is quite important to maintain a healthy weight if you want your liver to be healthy as obesity is the main cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver. If the person is overweight, the body is storing fats basically everywhere and if the liver becomes fatty, its functioning is highly compromised which may lead to a vicious circle – the more toxins produced, the more the liver is not able to eliminate them. 

3. Limit your sugar and alcohol intake

Excess alcohol consumption is also a very common cause of liver disease or a fatty liver. Diabetes Type 2 is also linked to liver issues. The main thing is that if there is a greater amount of sugars (alcohol, refined white sugar, sweets, deserts) in your meal, it is not possible to use all of them as fuel, so they are turned into fat and stored in the body for a later need of energy. However, if you eat a lot of sugar or drink too much alcohol on a daily basis, there is no such need for fuel. On the contrary, intermittent fasting or one day water fasting weekly are very beneficial for the health of the liver. 

4. Avoid household and cosmetics toxins

When you are in contact with aggressive chemicals like the ones in the household cleaning products, always wear gloves and avoid inhaling the harmful gases. Be careful with aerosols and sprays. Cosmetics also have a huge impact on the liver, especially in women while they tend to use up to five times more products than men. All the toxins and unknown substances have to pass through the liver in order to be taken out of the body. 

5. Use medications and supplements wisely

Some medications can have negative side effects on the liver, especially if you mix several different types. So, always check the potentially harmful combinations. Taking too many supplements can also be a bit heavy for the liver mainly because of all the additives, substances which are in the capsule or tablet just to fill it in and to make it the right size for swallowing. For example, if you want to take some kind of a mineral and you need only 50mg from it in one capsule, the rest of it is made by these additives. Not to mention what is going on in your liver if you take a handful of medications and supplements, all the unknown and potentially harmful substances have to be eliminated from your body by the liver and the kidneys. Choose less aggressive ways to treat and heal yourself like non-invasive coMra cold laser therapy, massage therapy, meditation, exercising, etc.

6. Exercise regularly and manage your stress levels

When you exercise, walk or practice any kind of training, the blood and the lymph are moving faster in your body, supporting the elimination process. More oxygen means fresh and healthy blood entering your organs and helping the detoxification. On the other hand, when you exercise the glucose in the blood is regulated more effectively. All of that will help your liver and will speed up the cleansing of the body from toxins and metabolic waste materials. Managing stress and emotional imbalances is also a very important part of any healing process. When the liver is suffering, it is a sign of suppressed anger or fear, or any unprocessed stressful situations in your life which are causing emotional crisis on a very deep level.

7. Maintain good personal hygiene 

Since, the liver is the organ which is guarding the body from harmful substances, it is crucial to maintain a very good personal hygiene – always washing your hands thoroughly when needed, never sharing personal items like a toothbrush with another person, not touching dirty surfaces, etc. Using disinfectant on your hands twenty times per day is the other side of the coin as it contains aggressive chemicals which are there to fight the germs but still they are entering your bloodstream through the skin. Maintaining a proper balance in everything is a good strategy for a healthy liver after all.
