- The largest solid organ in the body is the liver and its main function is to transform toxins into waste, and then, the body removes them through urine and feces. This is one of the most important functions of our body due to the true fact that today and nowadays we are constantly and each and every day surrounded by pollutants and toxins.
Very unfortunately, our livers can become very overwhelmed and therefore not capable to remove, which is, to get rid of the waste, that can consequently lead to storage in fat cells, most often in the area of our belly.
The is naturally an organ that contains fat so therefore there shall be some fat in it at all times, but when the case is that the fat is more than 5 to 10 percent of the total weight of the organ, it results to a fatty liver.
Two types of fatty livers diseases exist: Non-alcoholic fatty livers disease and alcoholic livers disease. The alcoholic livers disease appears as a result of excessive consumption of alcoholic drinks, and the non-alcoholic fatty livers disease is a result of some non-alcoholic factors such as high cholesterol, large consumption of processed and fast foods, genetics or chemical influences.
The symptoms that can indicate a livers in need of detoxification are as below:
Unexplained weight gain
If the liver is not 100% working on removing toxins from the body, regular workout and reducing calories won’t be of much help because of the true fact that the body stores the unfiltered toxins in its fat cells. Furthermore, due to the fact that the responsibility of the livers is to metabolize fat, when it doesn’t function properly, the fat circulates from the gut, through the bile and back to the organ.
If the liver functions properly, it produces antibodies that fight allergens, so if its work is reduced, the allergens are stored into the body. As a response to this, the brain produces histamine which is a chemical that marks the allergens that shall be eliminated, and in high levels leads to allergy symptoms such as itchiness, fogginess and headaches.
One of the first and obvious signs of liver damage is feeling weak and tired constantly. When the liver is in poor condition, the body has to work harder and the body will need more rest. This happens due to an increase in toxins in the bloodstream that can not be cleared out due to the fact that the liver can’t get rid of the toxins in a proper manner. If the symptoms are persistent, especially with other early signs of liver damage, please seek medical advice as soon as possible.
When the liver is overworked, its functioning decreases and the liver warms up. Due to this, as it is a big organ, it transports the heat to the rest of the body parts and gets a try to cool itself by excessive sweating.
The toxic buildup in the liver most often leads to hormonal imbalance which causes acne. If the acne is a cause of reduced liver function it can’t be treated externally.
If your hygiene and oral health are in a good shape, but you still suffer from a bad breath, you might have a liver problem. Please contact a physician in order to be certain.
