Change This Spring? by Christine M Esters
about it, cleansing your liver is like changing the oil filter in the car. The oil filter takes
in all of the bad particles and make sure they don't get to the engine. The liver
performs the same function by filtering out the harmful toxins you are exposed to on
a daily basis.
Your liver is one of the largest and most important organs in your body. Weighing an
average of 3 pounds, your liver performs over 500 essential functions to make sure
your body is operating properly.
Your liver is a natural detox agent; it has special cells known as Kuppfer cells, which
are able to destroy 99% of harmful bacteria. These cells amongst other things help
the liver rid your body of toxins naturally.
If you suffer from Insomnia, Constipation, Allergies, Depression, Asthma and a
variety of other physical symptoms, you may have an unhealthy liver.
The liver works hard to make sure the harmful toxins stay out of your body,
however, when you eat fatty, starchy, and unhealthy foods, in addition to consuming
drugs and alcohol, the liver has to work extra hard to filter out the toxins.
And when your liver is overworked it can't perform to its fullest, so the toxins are
released into your bloodstream causing various symptoms like fatigue, hormonal
imbalances, weakened immune systems, and allergies just to name a few.
Luckily, there are simple steps that you can take to make sure your liver is always
performing at its best. That's why most doctors and liver health experts recommend
that you cleanse your liver on a regular basis. Just like the car fanatic changes his oil
every few thousand miles to keeps the engine running smoothly, you have to do the
same with your liver.
Here are 4 Simple ways to detox your liver starting today:

to bile in the large intestines. Bile carries the stored fat soluble toxins away from
the liver so they can be eliminated during a bowel movement. Leafy greens like
kale, spinach, and broccoli are loaded with fiber. Don't forget about your
succulent full of fiber fruits as well. However, make sure your fruits and veggies
are both organic for better results.
- Fasting - Just like your intestines need a break, so does your liver. Your liver is
always at work, eliminating toxins as well as processing the carbohydrates, fats
and proteins you digest. Sometimes it is best to give your liver a break and go
on a juice fast. When you don't eat for a few days the body actually starts the
elimination process and removes toxins naturally and effortlessly throughout
the body. Going on a fast also helps restore balance to your liver and other
