Find out how investing energy into your liver can help you attain an ideal weight.


Good Morning, how is your Liver? – Common greeting in China.

You’ve heard it all before – detox your liver for better health, blah blah blah.

Most people think that it is only for the individuals who drink lots of alcohol or over indulge with sugar and fatty foods.

But it is also extremely important for removing toxins from your liver that can

help you reach your ideal weight.

Now that I have your attention, if you have tired many many diets with no long lasting weight loss or even gained more weight back after stopping – then this is for you.

Cleansing your liver can be a vital step for you to

start to shift weight permanently and reach your best weight for your body and life.

Liver health can represent the health of the whole body. It is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine to restore and enhance liver health. The liver plays a role in some of the most crucial functions and processes within a female body.

Even if you are not experiencing signs and symptoms of a sluggish liver, your life can considerably improve by taking good care of it.

FYI: Signs and Symptoms of a sluggish and overloaded liver.

Bloating

Difficulty losing weight

Headaches

Irritability / anger

Indigestion / reflux

PMS and other hormonal imbalances

Fatigue / feeling drained

Fibromyalgia

Mood Swings

Constipation / Diarrhoea

High Blood pressure

Nausea

….to name a few.

If you are experiencing three or more of these symptoms – it would be an excellent insurance policy and I’d highly recommend investing some energy in to a ‘safe and natural’ liver cleanse. (see the simple New Year’s Cleanse below.)

There are a few things you can start today to reduce the load on your liver and

help it do its job properly, for your long term benefit.

You will love the results when you notice the signs from above decrease and possibly disappear and you feel renewed and refreshed in body, mind and energy.

Look towards:

Decreasing the Overeating occasions

Avoiding eating while feeling stressed or overwhelmed or tense in your body

Eating in a relaxed environment – stop eating in a rushed manner

Eating more fibre and vegetables

Having minimal alcohol or steer clear of it as often as possible

Reducing considerably, the amount of fried foods (processed fats), sugar, excessively cooked and processed foods (refined carbohydrates) and pasteurised/homogenised dairy.

Support yourself more by:

Drinking more water

Have lemon and warm water in the morning

Increase green vegetables and non-starchy vegetables in general

Add more enzyme-enriched foods and herbs and spices to your meals

Get in some enjoyable movement each day

Creating space for time out – breathing room and nature time

Up-levelling Self-care in a big way – massage, alternative and transformation treatments and healing, journaling and reflecting and spiritual reading.

Simple Liver Cleanse for your New Year ahead:

Add the following ingredients to a blender;

One cup of Citrus fruit – oranges, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and/or lime. (The sour the better)

1 – 2 cloves of garlic

1 small piece of fresh ginger

One tablespoon of organic olive oil

Dilute with water to your preference.

Follow up with two cups of a loose leaf detox tea or dandelion tea.

It is preferable to have this drink 5 days in a row, first thing in the morning, an hour prior to breakfast. Repeat this at least 4 times a year, minimal. (Recipe adapted from ‘The Detox Solution’ by Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald.)

Doing a cleanse once a year is a great start but to support, cleanse and regenerate your liver and to keep your weight at an ideal level - do this seasonally.

When liver health is compromised it throws the whole body out of whack.

Don’t let your liver struggle to take care of the most important processes that will help you lose weight and sustain it where you are most comfortable.
