Liver Checklist


The liver is an essential part of your body's ability to neutralize and eliminate toxins. In this regard, it is like the oil filter in your car. Over time, several factors can make the liver congested and sluggish, and overwhelm its detoxifying ability:

  • Poor diet: refined & highly processed foods, fried foods, dairy products, refined sugars, hydrogenated oils, fast food, chemical additives, preservatives, pesticides and artificial sweeteners

  • Drugs: medications, smoking, alcohol and recreational drugs

  • Environmental pollution: air, water, noise, electromagnetic

  • Poor digestion, especially "leaky gut" syndrome: toxin absorption through gaps in the intestinal wall.

A healthy Liver is absolutely vital to your overall wellbeing! In this day and age, where we are constantly exposed to pesticides and chemical pollutants, human beings need to have healthy livers to eliminate these toxins from our system. But how can we tell when our bodies are congested with toxins and could use our active assistance with detoxifying?
