Your Liver, Your Life and 2020 – 10 Liver-Friendly Tips

We’re just fresh into the new year.  2020 is here!

For many of us, the new year brings intestinal and liver cleanses encouraging the good health resolution we always make.  Both in my wellness book and my blog posts, I refer to cleanses.

What better time is there for a cleanse than now – in January of the new year?

I always recommend an intestinal cleanse before the liver cleanse.  Actually, the two cleanses are partners working together for your good health.

STEP ONE is an intestinal cleanse designed to detox  your digestive system.  When your intestinal tract is clean, you will feel better, have more energy, and be more alert.  But, a key  purpose of this intestinal cleanse is to prepare you to detox your     liver.

If you detox your liver before cleaning  your intestinal tract, you may overload your digestive system.  The result may not leave you feeling better, more alert, and energetic.

So, the best way to go is to detox your intestinal tract first.

STEP  TWO is a liver detox.  With a clean intestinal tract, the toxins will leave your body much easier.

When you think about your liver and what it does, it only makes sense to have a liver cleanse last.

Your liver is your body’s largest and most complex organ.   Some textbooks describe the tasks your liver performs in the hundreds.  How can one organ in the body do all the things it’s supposed to do?  Your liver processes your food nutrients, removes contaminents, stores minerals and vitamins, regulates blood clotting.  On top of the many things your liver does, it regenerates itself.

Your liver is vital to your health and wellbeing.

So, your liver should thank you for giving it a detox.

And, after your  detox, your liver should  easily and effectively process all the things you put in your body.  What can you do after your detox to help keep it in good running order?

There are several things you can do which will help your liver function better…especially if you have health issues affecting  your liver.

ENJOY A CUP OR TWO OF COFFEE.  Caffeine is good for your liver.

LOW-FAT FOODS.   Avoid saturated and trans fats which don’t go well with a fatty liver.

SKIP THE SUGAR.  Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to eat few to no sweets.

GET THE SALT OUT.  Too much salt in your diet contributes to high blood pressure which is hard on your liver.

EAT MORE FRUITS AND VEGGIES.  These foods offer a variety of vitamins and minerals which are easier to digest than the supplements themselves.

GO FOR WHOLE GRAINS.  Brown rice, beans, whole grain breads are preferred.

WATER, WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE.  Drink a lot of water…everyday.

SKIP RAW FISH AND MEATS.  Your goal is to avoid introducing harmful bacteria to your liver.

SKIP THE ALCOHOL.  If you have health issues, alcohol is too stressful on your body.

So, there you have it.   I truly hope this list will help you and your whole body health maintenance in the coming year.  These tips are all liver-friendly.  Your liver is important to your overall health – every day.
