We have been raised in a society that teaches us to fix ourselves once we are broken instead of how to take care of ourselves, so we break less often. Physicians are trained to treat their patients with pharmaceuticals and that only a pharmaceutical can be a cure. Did you know that if you were to claim a natural remedy were a cure for any condition, you could be jailed for practicing medicine without a license?! It sounds preposterous, but surprisingly this is the reality of the world we live in. Any homeopathic remedy may only be recommended with disclaimers that it is not intended to cure and has not been approved by the FDA.
Little do most people know that one of the best ways to stay healthy is to detoxify our bodies on a regular basis. By taking better care of our livers with the proper liver support, we can safeguard one of the most important organs in our bodies.
The liver has over five hundred functions but one of the most important roles it plays is ridding the body of toxins. You may be aware of toxins in our water supply and air, but did you know that many of the foods we eat every day, purchase at the local grocery store, are filled with toxins? As these toxins accumulate in our bodies over time, the liver becomes clogged with them. Bile that regularly flows through the liver gets jammed up with liver stones. When the liver can no longer do this important job, the toxins back up in other organs of the body and manifest as cysts, rashes, and even cancer. Diseases are the biproducts of other organs being taxes with an overflow of bodily toxins.
Did you know that your liver does not have any pain receptors? Luckily, for you, you are not feeling the pain of the toxins that are taxing your liver, but unluckily you will not be aware that your liver is unhealthy until the condition is so poor as to show up as cirrhosis.
Rather than wait for a doctor to tell you that you have liver failure, you can be proactive in restoring liver health before your liver gets to that point. By cleansing the liver of toxins on a regular basis, you can restore healthy liver function and allow the liver to return to doing its job, ridding your body of toxins.
There are different ways to perform a liver cleanse. Doctors often recommend their cirrhosis patients take milk thistle and gingko biloba. These two supplements will help to heal your liver over time. A more rigorous routine entails a cleanse with Epsom salts which work by opening the bile ducts, making it easier for the liver stones to pass. It is not a pleasant process to endure; however, if done regularly, you will see improvements in your energy and skin.
Your ability to handle a cleanse depends on your health. You may wish to consult a physician prior to any cleanse routine.
If you want to lessen the burden on your liver moving forward, eat organic products whenever possible. Even our fresh produce is cover with toxins in the form of fertilizer.
You do not have to wait to get sick or contract a disease before taking charge of your own health. Taking steps to prevent disease is always easier than treating it.
