The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It is responsible for removing and neutralizing toxins and germs from the blood, promoting digestion, maintaining hormone balance, regulating blood sugar levels, and making proteins that regulate blood clotting.
Cumulative liver stress caused by toxins, poor diet, or disease inevitably lead to irreversible liver damage and death. The first stage is a condition known as fatty liver in which fat deposits accumulate and poison the liver. It has been estimated that 5 percent of the general population and 25 percent of patients with obesity and diabetes suffer from fatty liver.
There are two types of fatty liver disease: alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It is also possible to get fatty liver disease due to pregnancy.
The primary treatment for fatty liver disease is making changes in diet and exercise, although some people may need to see a doctor for further treatment.
Oh my gosh, nutrition and diet info is everywhere!
And each expert and association tries to lead you in their direction because they know best and their advice is going to help you. Right?
Everyone has heard (and maybe lived through) the intense focus on how much you eat. This has gotten way too much attention because while this does affect your weight and energy level, it’s certainly not the holy grail of health.
Let’s focus a bit more on the often overlooked (and proven) benefits of what you eat and drink and how you eat and drink it.
The word metabolism is thrown around a lot these days.
You know that if yours is too slow you might gain weight. But what exactly does this all mean
Well technically metabolism is the word to describe all of the biochemical reactions in your body. It’s how you take in nutrients and oxygen and use them to fuel everything you do. Your body has an incredible ability to grow, heal, and generally stay alive. And without this amazing biochemistry you would not be possible.
Metabolism includes how the cells in your body:
Most of us know something about stress or at least everyone has experienced stress in their life. As we know everyday stress is part of modern living, we need to develop our stress management skill in daily basis. Some example of stressors in life are job pressure, financial situation, family arguments, lost of loved one, never having enough time, and etc….
Detoxification is about resting, cleansing, and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.
We live in a modern environment which exposed us to a lot of toxicity. Toxins are everywhere. In the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink, in our home (cleaning materials). Even our bodies and the bacteria in our intestines produce toxic substances.
The human body deserves to be fed with a high quality diet, but most people are not giving their bodies the nutrition it needs or deserves. What you put in your body is very important. You only get one body for your entire life. If you frequently feed it with low quality food, there is no way it can perform optimally. Here comes to this statement that not only you are what you eat, but also you are what you absorb. If you don’t get good quality food, your body cannot get the nutrients it needs, then you feel low energy and you age fast and also end up with some chronic diseases such as Inflammatory Bowl Disease, Crohn’s disease, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, obesity, and Arthritis. But when you feed your body with great food, it will run smoothly with more energy and you will look and feel amazing in the process.
