As folklore tells us, spring is the season when we traditionally do a ‘spring-clean’. It’s also known as when to do a liver cleanse. To get a good grasp of this let’s look at a few perspectives.
In many ancient cultures, when we were more in-tune with nature, spring was clearly regarded as the true start of the new year. Hence, the choices we make at springtime may well set the path of how our life unfolds for the year ahead. Spring is the time of inspiration, renewal and revitalisation.
According to the wisdom of Traditional Oriental Medicine, spring corresponds to the element of ‘wood’ which relates to the liver organ and to the free flow of Chi. Detoxification is one of the most popular buzzwords in the health and wellness scene now-a-days. However, detoxification is actually only one of the most important functions of the liver.
Many don’t realise that our liver is one of our most important organs. It’s also the largest organ inside your body. Amongst many things, it helps to cleanse our blood of various waste products, hormones, alcohol, drugs and many other toxins. It also helps to break down hormones and old blood cells, stores and releases sugars and fat, produces essential proteins, including blood-clotting factors and enzymes, aids digestion, stores and supplies many nutrients as as the body needs them.
Although our liver has great regenerative abilities, it can still become sluggish and damaged. There’s many liver conditions or diseases that can accumulate from a poor lifestyle. All of these can in turn somehow affect our liver functions and hence our over-all wellbeing. Just as we’re all unique, so is our individual liver function. However, some of the most common conditions of the liver are fatty-liver disease, hepatitis and cirrhosis. We really need to appreciate just how crucial a good liver functioning really is. As our liver performs so many critical functions, we must really learn to ‘love our liver’ by taking good care of it.
Maybe you’re wanting to get rid of brain fog, sluggishness or excess weight. Hence, it’s likely you’ve come across the concept of a liver cleanse or detox. This term may conjure up images of a clogged filter that needs to be simply cleaned. However a good functioning liver needs much more than this. If you’ve been looking for ways to ‘love your liver’ more then an individualised ‘holistic’ approach is really the key. We must also look at ways to improve our well-being overall.
Remember, just as we are a part of nature, we need to find ways to reconnect with nature and reclaim our true, natural self. Be aware of the traps of the modern 21st century. In today’s crazy world we can be subjected to the harmful effects of so many technologies. This causes us to be exposed to much pollution. We need to look at practical ways of managing this.
A healthy lifestyle can help to keep your liver healthy without a severe detox programs. This can especially be important if you’re at higher risk of liver problems, such as with a family history of liver disease. A healthy lifestyle would include limiting the amount of alcohol you drink. Also, to eat a well-balanced diet each day. Be sure to include live food with enzymes that help your body detox naturally. Do regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight. Some of the lifestyle changes that may protect against liver disease can also help you lose weight and get rid of inflammatory fat in your liver.
There’s much research that suggests how various nutrients can help with liver function. As an example, ‘milk thistle’ is an herb that contains a compound called silybin. It can be a great help to enhance liver function. Many supplement brands have good formulas where each nutrient can compliment each other. It’s suggested to select a formula that suits you best as an individual.
There’s much more to learn about enhancing our liver function. You can learn much more about a ‘holistic’ approach to supporting your liver, with ideal liver nutrients, etc. in the ‘Holistic Lifestyle Coaching Course’. A new module called ‘Honour Thy Temple’ will be released soon with a 4 part video series. There’s a special introductory offer available to members only.
