Liver Lovers Live Longer!

Every day, people come into our shop who struggle with a variety of health conditions. Many of the symptoms and challenges we have been hearing about lately relate to impaired liver function. Did you know that your liver function impacts hormonal balance, weight loss and gain, metabolism, anger issues, blood sugar levels, skin conditions, stress, bile production, inflammation throughout the body and a myriad of other functions? The liver performs thousands of regulatory, cleansing, and supportive processes, and supporting your liver is key to addressing many chronic conditions as well as improving your overall health. After all, you only have one liver, so treat your liver well and lead a well life!

Let’s look at some of the lesser-known ways your liver can affect your health. Blood sugar, for example: A fatty liver is often a leading factor in type 2 diabetes, as the liver is no longer able to remove enough glucose from the blood.

In addition, several consequences of weakened immune function, such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic infections, allergic reactions, and hypersensitivity to inhaled chemicals like perfumes and tobacco smoke can all be related to your liver having become too weak to cleanse your blood and tissues quickly enough to cope with environmental stress factors.

Because the liver is key to so much of the body’s ability to support and maintain itself, I recommend a good supportive liver cleanse in many situations, depending on the individual person’s symptoms and circumstances. To that end, I created Gentle Cleanse. This WellTeaing formula was designed to not only cleanse and support your liver but also your kidneys and lymphatic system as well to boost your body’s existing purifying and detoxifying systems.

Gentle Cleanse contains ginger and lemongrass to help with inflammation; dandelion to help cleanse the blood; slippery elm to protect the intestinal tract; oatstraw to help your lymphatic system keep things fluid and moving; and milk thistle to help support and cleanse the liver. These ingredients are combined with a blend of rooibos and honeybush, both of which are dense in vitamin and mineral content (in fact, they contain most of the vitamins and minerals your body uses to create new healthy cells!).

Personally, I believe that anyone dealing with chronic conditions should start with supporting and cleansing the liver. Customers have also reported that, when drinking our Gentle Cleanse together with our ArthriTea immediately after surgeries, their healing processes sped up, and they had fewer post-surgical complications. So maybe it is time to give your liver some Love, and remember: Liver Lovers Live Longer!

Herbs to Beat the Heat of Summer

It is that time of year when temperatures are climbing and we are all enjoying the beauty of nature outside. Two issues we often face in the summer as we sweat more is loss of water (dehydration) and loss of electrolytes. Electrolytes in the body help regulate the heart, nervous system, muscle strength, oxygen delivery, and so much more, so when they are lost in sweat, the body’s ability to balance and maintain these systems is decreased, sometimes to dangerous levels.

How do we fight electrolyte loss naturally? By using herbs. It is always important to drink enough water throughout the day, and doubly so when it’s hot out; adding the right herbs to your water can help hydrate you, cool you down, and, of course, help replace those ever-important electrolytes.

Herbs can help in several ways. For example, both hibiscus and peppermint are cooling herbs that reduce your body core temperature. Maintaining a lower body core temperature helps prevent heat stroke, exhaustion and even muscle cramping. Another great herb to beat the heat is raspberry leaf; not only is it refreshing, it is an adaptogenic herb that contains magnesium, potassium, iron, B-complex vitamins and vitamin C to help replace electrolytes. Dandelion is a circulatory aid that also contains potassium, iron and B-complex vitamins as well as vitamin C. You can find some of these herbs already in blends such as our Tropic of Jasmine, Cranberry Apple, Mo-Rockin’ Mint, FemiginiTea, Peaceful Pathways, and Lavender Lemonade, or have them on hand separately and add a pinch to your regular cuppa for some extra benefits.

You can also blend all four of these herbs together to create your own blend that can even act as a natural, low-sugar alternative to drinks such as Gatorade. Simply combine 2 teaspoons each of hibiscus, dandelion, peppermint, and raspberry leaf, hot-brew in a half-gallon of water for 25-30 minutes, and refrigerate to sip on or to fill your water bottle throughout the day. You can even add a teaspoon or two of one of our fruit blends as well for a great burst of fruity flavor. (My personal favorite is the Piña Colada.)

And remember, for a high-energy summer, it’s important to stay hydrated in order to recharge your batteries!
