High blood pressure, fatigue, high cholesterol, and triglycerides are also indications that your liver is asking for help. Mood swings, depression, sleep apnea or snoring are a few more. Fatty yellowish lumps around eyes are also a blatant sign that you need to detox and alter your diet to heal your liver. You will not only look better but will be ensured that you will have better health overall and feel like jumping in the air while clicking your heels together!
If you feel that your liver is sluggish or clogged, you may even have a fatty liver. With swollen fat cells, the liver cannot screen out or filter the many good or bad substances that are passing through it. As the liver’s function is to clean out used blood and return it to the heart, you end up with recycling the toxins through your body repetitively. This can damage your heart, compromise your immune system and lead to rapid aging among many other conditions that are detrimental to your health. All skin problems are also directly related to a taxed liver. Medications are filtered through the liver, we advise to try to limit your medications. There are many healing alternatives for any conditions that are kind to your body and your liver. “Let food be your medicine.”
