Your liver is an adaptable and resilient organ. It’s very remarkable to know that it performs over 500 different functions in the body. Daily, your liver supports your basic function by providing you with energy, filtering out toxins, helping in proper blot clotting, fighting off many infections, regulating body hormones, and many others.
What are the symptoms of a toxic liver?
- Abdominal pain/engorgement
- Bitter taste in the mouth
- Loss of appetite
- High cholesterol
- Fluid retention in the abdomen
- Skin sensitivity/outbreaks
- Dark urine
- Gallbladder attacks
How to support your liver?
1. Limit your alcohol consumption
A can of beer or a glass of wine now and then can be beneficial in some ways but drinking more than that can harm your liver. The metabolic by-product of alcohol consumption and the resulting inflammation can cause damage to this vital organ.
To give your liver a break, avoid drinking alcohol for at least one week. Then, you can slowly reintroduce light to moderate drinking after that. To keep your liver from overtaxing, drink no more than 1-2 glasses a few times a week.
2. Lose some weight
Researchers have found a definite link between obesity and liver disease. Obesity, defined as carrying too much body fat versus being overweight, which is defined as carrying more than a healthy weight for your height. From a therapeutic point of view, weight loss is regarded as a foundation for the treatment and prevention of disease.
3. Avoid eating processed food
Eating a lot of processed food taxes our liver, even if you are not overweight or obese. Processed food, including fast food and soda, contain a lot of sugar, salt trans fat, GMOs, chemicals, and other bad stuff. Not only are they bad for the liver, but for our body as a whole. Replace these processed foods with real whole foods so your liver can heal. As an added, you will also definitely feel a lot better.
4. Avoid or reduce over-the-counter pain medications
Pain medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen are made available almost everywhere. Unfortunately, these common pain medications are bad for your liver. They can block liver enzymes that regulate inflammation, cause bleeding throughout the digestive system and ultimately cause liver damage and failure when used regularly.
5. Detox with water
Increasing your water intake will help your liver clear out the toxins in your body. Most of us don’t drink enough water, so it also lessens our ability to flush out all the bad stuff in the body and replenish our supportive nutrition.
6. Eat healthy fats
Healthy fats like those found in fruits and vegetables support the liver by providing antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and other good nutrients. Sources of healthy fat include avocado, coconut, flaxseed, olive/olive oil, and hemp.
7. Increase exercise
Exercising helps your body. Moving your body regularly gets your blood flowing, muscles strengthened, toxins eliminated, reduces stress, and improves your sleep. The list of good things goes on. Even following a moderate exercise regimen has significant benefits especially in reducing liver fat in people with fatty liver disease. Exercise regularly to heal and maintain a healthy liver and for natural liver detox.

“I’ve been dealing with liver issues for the past 13 years due to HELLP Syndrome during my first pregnancy – including swelling, a lot of tenderness, gut issues, and a lot of restrictions in my breathing…
Once the discs were placed on there, the swelling went down almost instantly, in seconds. The pain disappeared almost as quickly… My breathing is so much better. I can do a full range of motion. No pain. I’m super excited.”
— Leslie Ann, ANF Patient
Your liver is the hardest working organ in your body. It is continually working on a lot of processes to produce proteins and hormones, nutrients, fight off infection, metabolize cholesterol and glucose and so much more.
