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!
