2 Protocols & 3 Plants to Support Your Liver Health

Toxins in the liver can cause hormonal imbalance, anxiety, depression, low libido, menstrual issues, migraines, thyroid and chronic disease.

The liver has the most influence on your body. The liver detoxifies the body from chemicals, pesticides, medications, alcohol. The liver produces bile for digestion, stores vitamins, activates immune cells, metabolizes your hormones and controls your blood sugar. When your liver becomes overwhelmed with toxins it cannot carry out all it’s functions. Your liver also activates your thyroid hormones. When your liver is unhealthy, overloaded or imbalanced, it impacts your thyroid which leads to weight gain, low metabolism, depression, fatigue, poor health, etc. A common pattern with women that have a toxic liver is estrogen dominance. Your liver cannot clear out excess estrogen from the body so you have high amounts of estrogen in relation to progesterone, this leads to PMS symptoms like cramping and breast tenderness. Progesterone helps with the anti anxiety brain chemical called GABA in your brain so people who have low progesterone experience depression and/or insomnia. These are just a few examples of how poor liver health can cascade problems throughout your body. There are many different things you can do to detoxify your liver like eating lots of fruits and vegetables, having a high fibre diet and drinking plenty of filtered water to help cleanse your liver every day. There are vitamins, herbs, homeopathy that go deeper into healing your liver. Signs of an imbalanced liver:

  • headaches

  • irritability

  • limp in throat

  • low level anger, depression, resentment

  • tightness in chest

  • pain and swelling of breasts

  • menstrual pain, fibroids, cysts

  • constipation/hemorrhoids

  • stomach/abdomen pain

2 protocols that stimulate your liver to release bile

  1. Begin your meals with a salad of bitter greens like arugula, mustard greens, radicchio, dandelion greens. Bitter foods stimulate the liver to release more bile

  2. Drink a glass of hot water with lemon and ginger first thing in the morning or before meals. This drink also helps produce bile and helps release toxins from the liver and cleanse the body
