You only have one liver and its one of your most important organs. Your overall health depends on the health of your liver.

It is an important organ, yet so many people have a difficult time keeping their liver healthy. At least 30 million people in the U.S. are dealing with some form of liver disease. That’s one in every ten Americans! With over 100 types of liver diseases, this is no joke. You must protect your liver!
How? These tips can help you to keep your liver healthy and happy naturally.
5 Must Do Tips To Heal And Supercharge Your Liver
Eat An Anti-Inflammatory Diet
For liver health, it is essential that you eat a low-toxin, high-fiber, anti-inflammatory diet with lots of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
A diet high in processed foods, refined sugar and artificial ingredients can lead to inflammation, food sensitivities, gut problems, leaky gut problems and blood sugar issues, which are all taxing to your liver.
On the other hand, a whole foods, anti-inflammatory, mostly plant-based and healthy diet can support your liver and overall health.
Leafy greens, cruciferous veggies, fresh herbs, sour foods, antioxidant fruits, raw honey, coconut oils, green tea and apple cider vinegar are some of your best friends when eating an anti-inflammatory diet. However, stay away from processed and packaged foods, refined sugar, alcohol, caffeine, factory-farmed animal products and refined grains. Aim to eat mostly organic to reduce harm from pesticides and chemicals.
Eat Liver-Friendly Food Such As Reishi
Reishi is one of the BEST foods you can eat for liver health.
According to a 2002 and a 2013 study, Reishi has beneficial effects on liver-injured mice. A 2002 study has found that Reishi can improve chronic hepatitis. Furthermore, a 2013 study has shown that Reishi fights harmful immune responses that can slow down liver function.
Other liver friendly-foods include:
Healers throughout the centuries, as well as modern-day holistic practitioners, have been connecting liver health to emotions. According to them, an unhealthy liver is a sign of emotional troubles. They are actually right.
Chronic stress can impact your entire body, including your endocrine, reproductive, digestive and immune system. Research has shown that changes in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis as a result of stress can create an inflammatory response that can lead to liver damage.
Stress can often be caused by emotional issues, such as relationship troubles, anger, guilt, shame, or fear. A poor liver function can also block emotional flow, creating both physical and psychological symptoms of headaches, joint pain, muscle pains, brain fog, digestive issues and dizziness.
Lowering your stress levels and taking care of your emotions is crucial for your emotional health. Practice forgiveness and gratitude. Try meditation, journaling, deep breathing and relaxation exercises.
Move Your Body
Your liver stores and processes your blood. No wonder that healthy circulation is essential for its proper functioning. When your heart pumps more blood, your liver can release blood easier to your brain, organs, muscles, joints and tendons, helping your overall health. Exercise can help with healthy blood flow, overall health and well-being.
