Signs And Symptoms That You Need To Detox Your Liver

Detox Your Liver

We are constantly exposed to chemicals and environmental pollutants. Even if we try our best to eat fresh and organic products, we still find ourselves unable to avoid all the harmful toxins present in our food and environment.  Cosmetics, house cleaning products, shampoo, perfume, cigarette smoke, pollution and pesticides are just a few of the thousands of toxic chemicals that surround us. Cleaning our body internally is not an easy task and the liver is busy at it 24 hours per day.

One of our liver’s functions is to filter toxins from the blood in order to eliminate them. Like a filter, the liver can get clogged up if overworked with the overabundance of toxic waste in the body. It can also get ill from heavy alcohol abuse, drug use, obesity, high fat diets, viral infections, high levels of triglycerides and more. When that toxic load is too much to handle, toxins start to accumulate in the body and make us sick. If your liver is stressed, you should consider going through a detox program. This would allow you to regain your health rapidly and enjoy life again.

Here are signs and symptoms that your liver needs to detox.

  • Acne, skin rashes, psoriasis and eczema
  • Digestive problems (heartburn, bloating, abdominal pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea)
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Allergies
  • Chemical sensitivities
  • Weight gain, inability to lose weight
  • Depression, brain fog, mood swings
  • Bad breath
  • Liver cramps
  • High blood pressure
  • Candida overgrowth
  • Intestinal parasite infection
  • Dark urine

If you experienced any of those symptoms, you should take the time to detox your liver with a complete body cleanse program. Your liver has been overworked and has not been filtering toxins efficiently. You can feel it throughout your body that something is not right. You need to change your current diet to a more natural, whole and nutrient rich diet. Avoiding the toxic food is the first step of a cleanse.  A detox diet should be composed of plant-based meals with no processed food. Avoiding junk, meats, hydrogenated oils and industrial sugars is important. If the food is not toxic anymore, the liver will not have to work so much, and will be able to do its job: detoxify.

Foods that encourage the detox of the liver include garlic, leafy greens, grapefruit, lemons, limes, apples, beets, avocados, walnuts and carrots. You can boost the liver’s detox enzymes by consuming broccoli and other cruciferous, like cauliflower, cabbage and Brussel sprouts. Drink raw vegetable juice daily. Once a healthy detox diet is in place, some natural herbs and supplements can be taken to support the liver.  Milk thistle, turmeric, green tea and dandelion are great to detox and reduce inflammation.

It is recommended to go through a 7 day detox and colon cleanse program. Fasting can be highly beneficial for the liver, since it will clean the digestive tract and flush the colon, eliminating old fecal matter. All this accumulation of waste in the colon puts tremendous pressure on our organs, especially on the liver. Stagnant stool produces toxins that can be reabsorbed through the colon wall and into the bloodstream, intoxicating your body. Digestive issues that were encountered because of a toxic liver can be cured with a 7 day colon cleanse. After your detox, it is wise not to go back to previous unhealthy habits that made you sick in the first place. Sticking to your new lifestyle just might be the best plan for you.
