Liver Cleanse

Rid your body of toxins

posted: Aug 24, 2007

Your liver deserves a Natural liver cleanse. It works hard for your well-being. It never takes a break. It has hundreds of different functions and is connected to every part of your body. The liver acts as a cleansing machine. It manufactures, processes and supplies nutrients to your body. It never takes a break. One of its many jobs is to detoxify - to get rid of impurities in your body - toxins from pesticides, tobacco, liqueur, additives in foods etc.

The Average Person's diet is TERRIBLE. Natural liver cleanse helps your organs. Be good to your liver, it has a tough job. Much of our diet today is very deficient in nutrients. It is full of sugar and animal fat, and the food we eat is contaminated by pesticides, antibiotics and poor soil. The stress of daily life also causes the release of potential dangers. All these accumulated impurities may create a toxic liver full of stones. The liver gets congested and cannot do its job of cleansing the toxins from the body.

What Are These Stones and Where Do They Come From?

Liver cells secrete bile. When the composition of bile in the liver is no longer balanced, small cholesterol crystals begin to combine with other bile components to form tiny clots. These tiny clots can obstruct the tinier bile canaliculi. Eventually these tiny clots grow into stones. Bile flow becomes obstructed to the degree that the amount of bile available for the digestive process is drastically reduced. The bile which is continually being produced by the liver ends up being converted into stones. These soft round bits of mostly cholesterol and bile that gather in the liver. They are encased in a harder shell, thus difficult to pass under normal circumstances. They drop into the gallbladder (when there is one) and eventually become the hardened stones the surgeon removes when they become painful. It seems that almost everyone has stones. The purpose of the liver/gallbladder flush is to take the pressure off the heart, the lungs, the liver, the eyes, the tissues and the joints of the body.

Gallbladder/liver cleansing is part of Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient Eastern Indian discipline which has been around millennia before modern Western medicine. A healthy liver filters 3 pints of blood per minute and produces 1 to 1.5 quarts of bile per day.
