Liver cleansing is significant in the prevention of disease and in alleviating many symptoms that may be difficult to diagnose. Issues such as bloating, gas, irregular bowel movements, mood issues, menstrual irregularity, infertility, skin problems, weight gain and fatigue are just a few of the symptoms that may be related to liver problems. In Western medicine, the liver needs a chance to rid of excess waste and toxins so it can effectively do its job of rendering harmful substances that enter the body, less harmful. This is why cleanses are important as well as eating healthy fats in your diet.
Cleansing the liver, along with the kidneys, intestines and lymphatic system strengthens the immune system, so we are better equipped to fight off colds and flus. Also, it’s a great way to get into the habit of eating healthy foods which can give us more will power when we are tempted by the yummy treats of the holidays. Knowing how great it feels to eat healthy, gives a stark contrast to what it feels like when we eat too many processed or unhealthy foods. Food sensitivities can also be identified easily and thus avoided.
