Harmful consequences linked to the inefficient liver detoxification processes
Food allergies & intolerances
Poor liver functioning may put you at risk of food allergies by reducing the efficient functioning of the immune system and the diversity of the gut flora.
Improper liver functions may result in the food allergens remaining in the body tissues for longer due to which you may develop serious complications.
Supporting liver detoxification processes through coffee enema might promote the faster elimination of food allergens. It would also improve the functions of the immune system and strengthen the gut flora thereby protecting you against food allergies.
Patients with liver disorders are prone to develop a deficiency of multiple nutrients.
The liver plays a key role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients from foods by producing bile and other enzymes. The reduced production of these enzymes could prevent optimum gut functioning due to which patients can develop nutritional deficiencies and related disorders. Normally the liver would deal with these partially digested chemicals or food components, however with a congested liver, these particles escape and cause an allergic reaction such as eczema or asthma.
Improving liver functions through detoxification would increase the secretion of enzymes in this organ enabling the gut to absorb nutrients efficiently.
Poor bowel movements
Poor bowel movement is often the root cause of the build-up of toxins in the body’s vital organs including the liver and brain.
Poor bowel movements may occur due to the lack of enough fibers in the diet and even pre-existing inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Lack of diverse gut microbiome can also reduce bowel movements resulting in chronic constipation. This can slow down the elimination of toxins from the body resulting in the accumulation of harmful waste in the liver.
These consequences could be avoided by supporting healthy bowel movements and improving dietary habits to enhance gut microbiome.
The lymphatic system (your lymph nodes) is ultimately cleansed by the liver. When someone suffers from recurrent infections such as tonsilitis this can indicate liver congestion.
It is not uncommon for people to develop skin problems that could be traced to liver toxicity.
The build-up of toxins, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead, into the liver tissues can trigger the development of autoimmune diseases affecting the skin like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.
Supporting liver functions by improving gut flora would enhance bile production in this organ. This would improve the natural detoxification processes and speed up the elimination of toxins from the blood and through defecation thus protecting you against skin problems.
Liver toxicity can reduce the secretion of bile in the liver. As a result, the metabolic processes involved in the breakdown of fats are affected causing excessive deposition of fatty tissues in the body.
This would increase your risk of obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, heart attacks, and stroke.
Moreover, the fat deposition in healthy tissues may trigger inflammation putting you at risk of cancer and diabetes. This marks the need to promote detoxication and improve liver functions.
Often found in new-born babies which is indicative of an immature liver which cannot cope with the breakdown of red blood cells which occurs naturally after birth. Bilirubin, the yellow pigment is normally cleared and broken down by the liver. However if this does not occur it can cause jaundice (yellowing of the skin).
The liver degrades and clears hormones! When someone is suffering from menstrual irregularities, premature birth, miscarriages, early menopause, infertility, cancers and such are symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances. This is why detoxification and gut health is often addressed prior to addressing the hormones directly.
Glandular fever and hepatitis
These are common conditions that involve liver congestion directly. If these are present in your history or a clients history it is often a direct indication of a compromised liver.
