A Guide To A Healthy Liver

The liver is a vital organ of our body. The liver detoxifies our body by filtering blood and removes toxins, ammonia, bilirubin ( a byproduct of old dead blood cells) from the blood. Liver balances our hormones and gets rid of extra hormones. The liver helps in digestion of food and is responsible for the metabolic processes in our body.

SYMPTOMS: If your liver is working slow or facing problems, you will start seeing visible differences in your body. When the liver is overworking which means you are putting something wrong in your body, the liver will tell you to stop it. If you are in tune with your body, you can easily know that something is wrong but if it's hard for you to know then here is the list of some common symptoms that your body is going to show you if your liver is in the struggle.

1. Abdominal Pain
2. Weak Digestion
3. Bitter Taste In Mouth (because of excessive ammonia in your body)
4. Yellowish Skin Or Eyes  (because of liver failing in get rid of extra bilirubin)
5. White Spots On Face
6. Tendency to bruise easily
7. Bad Breath
8. Swelling In Legs & Ankles
9. Joint Pain/Arthritis
10. Nausea
11. Fatigue
12. Loss of Appetite
13. Vomiting
14. Confusion

If you have any of the above symptoms that you don't have an explanation for, then you know that you need a doctor visit. I am not suggesting that you go to a doctor and start taking the heavy medication and be a patient "NO". I am only suggesting so that you know if the liver is okay and if it's just starting to have problems, we can control in the beginning by natural remedies. We don't want to be too late for liver where we don't have any other option than medical science. I am not against medical science but I think that those hard medications always have side effects on your body. But yes, if it's already late then you should consult your doctor and also start the natural remedies which I will discuss later.
