How to look after your liver


The liver is responsible for detoxification, metabolising & recycling.

The liver protects us from all the toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. A sluggish liver can cause fatigue & skin problems due to excess toxins circulating around the body.

The liver produces bile to aid digestion & metabolise fats into energy. A sluggish liver is unable to metabolise fat leading to nausea after meals, weight gain & digestive problems.

The liver recycles hormones, ridding excess hormones from the body. A sluggish liver can lead to hormone imbalance.

Signs Of A Sluggish Liver…

  • Feeling sluggish, tired & fatigued most of the time
  • Thick white or yellow coated tongue
  • Bad breath
  • Acne or skin irritations
  • Weight Gain – especially around the abdomen
  • Food cravings
  • Blood Sugar Spikes & Lows
  • Poor digestion – Constipation, Bloating, Wind
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea & Vomiting
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Intolerance of strong smells – perfume, car fumes etc.
  • Pain in the right side of the stomach

How To Give Your Liver Some Support…

  • Eliminate refined & processed foods.
  • Eat fresh, pesticide free fruits &  vegetables. Beetroot, cruciferous vegetables and bitter vegetables – chicory, lettuce, rocket, leafy greens are particularly beneficial to the liver
  • Substitute poor quality oils & fats to organic oils such as olive oil, coconut oil etc. & use sparingly
  • Switch from frying foods to steaming, roasting or sautéing on a low heat
  • Eliminate or reduce alcohol & eliminate or minimise coffee
  • Start the day with a large glass of water with fresh lemon juice, to flush out the system & rehydrate the body
  • Squeeze citrus juice over your food
  • Give your liver a break – avoid snacking & consider intermittent fasting once a week or more
  • Drink plenty of water & herbal teas throughout the day
  • Drink Dandelion Root Tea
  • Turmeric – add to curries or drink Turmeric Lattes
  • Take Milk Thistle (capsules or tincture)
  • Use natural products in your home & on your body
  • Use glass storage containers or BPA free tupperware
  • Use  glass or stainless steel water bottles
  • Exercise regularly
  • Release emotions, especially anger as it manifests in the liver – talk to someone, let it out, don’t bottle it up!
