The liver is in charge of cleansing all the toxins and chemicals from our body so it’s of utmost importance for our overall health that it does its function properly. If there are fat deposits in the liver, some 10% more than the normal amount, a disease known as fatty liver disease sets in.
Fatty liver disease can commonly be seen in alcoholics, as it’s usually caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, but it can also be a non-alcoholic disease, a result of genetic factors or high cholesterol levels.
The following symptoms are indicators that your liver needs a good cleanse ASAP:
If your body is ridden with toxic deposits which accumulate in the liver you’re likely to experience chronic fatigue, muscle pain, depression and mood swings.
If the liver’s function is reduced, you’ll probably have a higher body temperature which will lead to profuse sweating.
Sudden weight gain
If fat and toxic compounds start accumulating in your body you won’t be able to control your weight and will probably face a sudden weight gain.
When the liver functions optimally, it uses antibodies to eliminate all the allergens in our environment. However, when its function is reduced, the body keeps the allergens and the brain starts producing histamines, which leads to headaches, itchiness and allergies.
Improper liver function can cause a hormonal imbalance which can cause an acne outbreak.
Bad breath is one of the most common symptoms of liver problems, even if your dental hygiene is immaculate you’ll still have a bad breath.
The good news is that your liver function can be significantly improved by some simple dietary modifications and lifestyle changes. Start eating healthier foods like ginger, bananas, dandelion root and so on.
