Stressed Out? Mood Swings? Your Liver May Be Crying For Help!

Our liver sure knows how to communicate with us. It plays with our emotions. Do you find yourself flying off the handle? Everything seemed right, now it's wrong?

Your liver is screaming "I don't like pizza" or "too much alcohol"! Try cutting back on starchy carbohydrates, alcohol and preservatives which cause the liver to overheat. Imagine your car overheating. Steam right? Think steam coming out of your ears.

Have you or someone you know ever blown up before? Any of these symptoms hit home:

-Mood swings


-Emotional stress




-Rashes, acne
-People just get on your nerves

When you get on your liver's bad side, it can take what seems like something trivial and blow it out of proportion. When it needs help and wants your attention it will alert you by causing you to become stressed. It is crying out for help.

 Ok, so now you're probably wondering what you can do to get on your livers good side. Some great herbs for detoxing your liver are: Dandelion, Ginger, Cayenne and Licorice. 

Garlic helps flush out toxins from the body.

Grapefruit is rich in natural vitamin C and antioxidants, two powerful liver cleansers. It also contains a flavonoid compound known as naringenin that causes the liver to burn fat rather than store it. 

Leafy green vegetables such as bitter gourd, arugula, dandelion greens, spinach, mustard greens, and chicory also contain numerous cleansing compounds that neutralize heavy metals.

Don't ignore your body when it speaks to you. Communication is key. Learn to listen to your body like a best friend listens to you. Treat your body like you would treat your best friend-with respect. Need some support learning to love yourself again? Do you want to finally figure out what your cravings mean? Schedule a complimentary break through session and start getting the attention you deserve!

As always, you should avoid any herbs or foods that you are allergic or intolerant to and consult with your health care provider with any medical concerns.
