The Liver is Responsible for over 200 Functions in the Body

Did you know?

The liver is responsible for over 200 functions in the body and is the largest internal organ, weighing in at about 55oz.

Although the liver is wonderful at healing and amazing at self-recovery, it does take a great deal of abuse in our Western lifestyles. Some of the choices can be fairly obvious (like eating processed food, living in a polluted area, drinking contaminated water, stress) but many other choices (like skin care products, house cleaning products, drinking tap water or prescription medication) can create further load which we might not even be aware of. The liver acts as a filter, helping to screen out the harmful effects of toxins from our environment and the products we put in our bodies.

When the liver has to work hard to eliminate toxins such as alcohol, drugs, caffeine, or environmental agents, the liver’s capacity to cleanse the blood of estrogen is compromised. A toxic liver can also greatly contribute to the symptoms we experience with estrogen dominance. (weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, acne, headaches etc.) By detoxing the liver it helps the rest of our organs and body work more efficiently. It also helps reduce some of those annoying symptoms. Come in and see us and continue to.
