The liver role in the body is crucial, because it eliminates accumulates toxins through the urine and feces in the form of waste.
Because we are continually surrounded by toxins, it can often become overwhelmed, and incapable to get rid of all the waste, and that leads to its storage in fat cells.
When the excessive fat amounts in the liver count for over 5-10% of its total weight, lead to fatty liver disease. There are two types of this disease : non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and alcoholic liver disease.
By the excessive use of alcoholic beverages the latter is caused while the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is caused by other non-alcoholic factors, like high cholesterol or genetics.
Here are the most common symptoms of a fatty liver disease, which warn you that you need to detoxify this organ in order to function normally:
Toxins impede the metabolism of muscle tissues, and cause pain and physical fatigue, that leads to angry outbursts, moodiness, and depression over time.
If your breath is bad even though you maintain a proper oral hygiene you might suffer from some liver issues.
Unexplained Weight Gain
The toxins accumulate in the fat cells when the liver does not function well, and fat circulates from the gut, through the bile, back to the liver, leading to weight gain.
When it is overworked the liver easily gets hot and transfers the heat throughout the body. The body starts to sweat excessively in an attempt to cool itself.
The liver when it functions properly produces antibodies which fight allergens, so in case its work is decreased, the body stores the allergens.
In respond to this, the brain produces histamine chemical which marks the allergens which should be eliminated, and in high levels, leads to allergy symptoms such as headaches, itchiness, fogginess.
The toxic buildup often leads to hormonal imbalances, and cause acne. It cannot be treated externally if acne is caused by the decreased liver function.
