Liver CleansePage 1 of 3
Liver cleansing has become popular in our environment of ever increasing toxic water, contaminated foods and industrial waste. The cloths we
wear to the shoes we put on our feet are made using chemicals and products that only a few short years ago we had never heard of. The problems attacking our
children are also challenging the adult immune system by depositing toxins in our cells, glands and organs. Consider some of the following:
Today's modern beds are now constructed from a wide range of petrochemical products such as vinyl and polyurethane foam now the feathers and straws of years ago.
Pesticides that we use around the home, on the garden, on crop land, on fruit etc. Doctors and research shows the exposure of the developing child to even
small levels of common everyday chemicals can result in learning or behavior problems evident throughout life. These chemicals are in the adult body! There is much
research on how the human immune system is damaged or weakened by exposure to pesticides, plastics and a variety of chemicals in common consumer products.
Strong evidence for explaining the observed increases in immune related disorders from viral/bacterial infections to child cancers.
The liver is an organ located on the right side of the body underneath the lower ribcage.
It is connected to gallbladder and is involved in the absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins. The liver acts as a filter to remove toxins (harmful substances)
and waste products from the blood. A healthy liver filters blood at a rate of about 1.5 quarts per minute.
That's 540 gallons of blood a day and more than 13 million gallons over a lifetime! The liver is also involved in the absorption of fats. Given that it is involved in
the absorption of fats makes the liver susceptible to the transacts the we get in our diets when eating foods fried in certain oils. The liver needs to be kept
clean, it is integral to countless metabolic processes. The liver produces more proteins than any other organ in the body.
What else does the liver do?
- Controls Blood Sugar (Glucose)
- Aids Digestion by producing bile
- Manufactures Clotting Factors
- Manufactures Cholesterol
- Produces Vitamin D
- Stores minerals
Is there any question that we need liver cleansing and every kind of cleansing that is realistic to consider?
The liver is a very important organ. You can live without a leg but not a liver! Later in this article you will find liver cleansing products, liver cleansing diets
and liver cleansing lifestyles. Yes, there are ways to live that affect our liver. For instance, overuse of alcohol causes liver damage. Fortunately for us the liver
is one of those organs that can heal itself after damage. It cannot overcome everything but the liver is resilient and forgiving is trends that have
caused damage are reversed.
