How to Detox Your Liver Naturally
The Best Liver Detox
Your liver is a vital part of your digestive system. It does so much for you; detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. it is located in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, below the diaphragm. It regulates glycogen storage, digests fats (through bile production), cleans up used red blood cells. It is what protects you from the toxins in your daily life. If you didn’t have a liver, the toxins you encounter daily would put you under in short order. Our liver is one of the bridges between health and sickness. Along with our healthy immune system it is what keeps us free from illness on a daily basis.
It performs over 500 functions in your body, so you want to keep it as healthy and clean as you possibly can. Emergency procedures include liver dialysis and transplant. This article is giving you a way to keep your liver cleansed and detoxed so hopefully, you will not have to face either of those two dire choices. There is plenty you can do to proactively and preventatively keep your liver as a vital team player in your body.
When your liver has become damaged in any way, your physician may refer to it as Liver Dysfunction or Liver Disease.

There are a few common signs that your liver is having problems and needs attention. Jaundice (a yellow tint) can begin to be seen on the skin or eyes of a person having liver problems or the beginnings of liver disease.

How Your Liver Becomes Damaged
Having a Fatty Liver or Steatosis, is a general term that describes the excess buildup of fats in the liver. Having fat in your liver is normal, but if more than 5-10 percent is fat, then it is called fatty liver disease. This form is the most easily treatable and least dangerous type of liver condition. It is correctable with a common sense diet and some specific liver support herbs.
Hepatitis C is a major cause of liver disease and can lead to fibrosis, or scar tissue within your liver. It can also lead to cancer of the liver if you do not take action to correct this condition quickly. Extreme scarring can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, a serious disease that become fatal if you do not detox, cleanse or help it regenerate quickly!
Viral Hepatitis is the most common cause of liver inflammation worldwide and you should take a potent Anti-Viral like Zeolite-AV if you’ve been diagnosed with Hepatitis as well as keep your immune system balanced and as strong as possible. Use this list of Immune System Boosters to keep it working the way it should.
Drinking too much hard liquor is a major cause of cirrhosis of the liver and will destroy you liver, as well as your life (and also negatively affect the lives of those you love.) The main things you can do to prevent liver problems in your life is to limit over-consumption of alcohol, eat a healthy diet (yes, that includes vegetables, particularly the green leafy ones like spinach and kale), drink alkaline beverages or water and get plenty of exercise (walking for an hour daily is recommended, although anything you do is beneficial.)
