Liver Care and Cleansing

The Hardest Working Organ in Your Body - The Liver

Your liver is consider the 2nd or 3rd most important organ in you body depending on who you ask. It is right below your rib cage on the right side of your body. Your liver is about the size of a football and performs a multitude of functions. Your liver is the only organ which can regenerate itself as long as it's not beyond repair.

Quite amazingly, if you donate a segment of your liver both the segment left and the donor liver will both regenerate themselves within weeks.

What does the liver do?

  • Converts everything you eat, breathe and absorb through the skin into life-sustaining substances. You have a highly sophisticated laboratory right in the middle of your body!
  • Stores and stockpiles glucose and other nutrients that have been absorbed through the intestinal wall, releasing them to your cells when necessary through the hepatic vein. It’s easy to see why you feel tired with no energy if your liver isn’t up to par.
  • Filters out toxins from your blood at the amazing rate of a quart per minute. It sorts out the good from the bad, keeping anything useful and tossing out the junk. As the world becomes more and more toxic, a liver working at optimal capacity plays a bigger role in health and well-being than ever before.
  • Makes bile to digest fat and prevent constipation. Your life improves in lots of ways with a healthy liver!
  • Secretes hormones and enzymes for hundreds of physiological functions, and maintains hormone balance. Did you know that even good sex is possible thanks in part to your liver?
What are some of the symptoms of a clogged liver?
  • Abnormalities in the level of fats in the blood stream. For example; elevated LDL cholesterol and reduced HDL cholesterol and elevated triglycerides.
  • Arteries blocked with fat, leading to high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.
  • Build up of fat in other body organs (fatty degeneration of organs).
  • Lumps of fat in the skin (lipomas and other fatty tumors).
  • Excessive weight gain, which may lead to obesity.
  • Inability to lose weight even while dieting.
  • Sluggish metabolism.
  • Pot belly
  • Cellulite.
  • Fatty liver.
  • Roll of fat around the upper abdomen - (liver roll).
  • Allergies - sinusitis, hay fever, asthma, dermatitis, hives, etc.
  • Multiple food and chemical sensitivities.
  • Skin rashes and inflammations.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Increase in recurrent viral, bacterial and parasitic infections.
  • Coated tongue.
  • Bad breath.
  • Skin rashes.
  • Itchy skin
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Offensive body odor.
  • Yellow discoloration of the eyes.
  • Acne rosacea - (red pimples around the nose, cheeks and chin).
  • Brownish spots and blemishes on the skin (liver spots).
  • Red palms and soles which may also be itchy and inflamed.
  • Flushed facial appearance or excessive facial blood vessels (capillaries/ veins).
Although some of these symptoms can be associated with other diseases, having several of these symptoms should lead you to suspect your liver.

Even though the liver has many functions its major task is filtering your blood. Like any filter if it's not cleaned or it is overused its effectiveness slowly diminishes. You don't suspect your liver because the illnesses can be unrelated. For example a patient had pain in their right leg below the knee. After a week of liver cleansing the pain went away.

These kinds of seemingly unrelated ailments can be traced to the liver. This is due to the toxins like ammonia, metabolic waste, drugs, alcohol and chemicals that the liver extracts and then try's to dispose of. These may also be referred to as "xenobiotic" chemicals.

Looking at your liver under a microscope, we will see rows of liver cells separated by spaces which act like a filter or sieve, through which the bloodstream flows. The liver filtering system removes toxic matter such as dead cells, microorganisms, chemicals, drugs and particulate debris from the bloodstream. The liver filter is called the sinusoidal system, and contains specialized cells known as Kupffer cells which ingest and break down toxic matter.

Modern day dangers to your liver.

There are many chemicals (e.g., trace metals, industrial chemicals) that may be inadvertently present in animal tissues yet have no established safe concentrations. This of course does not mean that these substances are not harmful.

Pesticides, herbicides and hormones are used in food production and your liver has to deal with this extra burden as these toxins are increasingly being used. The liver is the organ that metabolizes these substances and excretes them from the body.

The liver is the gateway to the body and in this chemical age its detoxification systems are easily overloaded. Thousands of chemicals are added to food and over 700 have been identified in drinking water. Plants are sprayed with toxic chemicals, animals are injected with potent hormones and antibiotics and a significant amount of our food is genetically engineered, processed, refined, frozen and cooked.

All this leads to the dilution of vital vitamins and minerals, which are needed for the detoxification pathways in the liver. The liver must try to cope with every toxic chemical in our environment, as well as damaged fats that are present in processed and fried foods.

So, now you have a pretty good picture of why you can look at you liver and connect it with other ailments you might have. Even though it has the ability to repair itself, it is still vulnerable.

What can you do?

You can start by giving your liver a break along with other affected parts like your gallbladder. As you can see in this picture, your gallbladder can also accumulate toxins over time and create gallstones. The question everyone asks is, how can you fix this?


There is a thing called "Master Cleanse" this is mainly for your liver and associated body functions. For people who have never done this before there is a more balanced and milder cleanse, it is called the "Master Cleanse Jr."

You can perform this process at a slower pace, a pace that fits your schedule and will achieve the health benefits you desire. If your system has never been detoxed, it sometimes is best to do a few spaced out mini cleanses that will slowly remove toxins first. Then, when you do you next cleanse in 6 months you can do just one master cleanse.
