The function of the liver is to produce bile that helps in blood purification, storage of minerals and vitamins, digestion of fats, and break down of hormones.
The most common liver disorder is non-alcoholic fatty disease(NAFLD), which occurs when the liver comprises 5-10% fat of weight. With this disorder, the liver cannot break down fats extracted from blood.
Consequently, the fats form deposits and enlarge the liver.
Nowadays, we are living in a polluted environment, full of toxins and dangerous chemicals, which might overwhelm the liver and make it sluggish. In this case, toxins remain in the body and start to accumulate, leading to numerous health issues.
The excess fat deposits in the liver lead to a fatty liver disease. This organ is normally fatty, but in the case of this disease, fat accounts for over 5% to 10% of the total weight of the liver.
It can be of two types, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and alcoholic liver disease.
The latter is a result of the overindulgence in alcoholic beverages, and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is caused by non-alcoholic factors, such as high cholesterol or genetics.
These are the most common symptoms that indicate that your liver desperately needs detoxification:
The toxins accumulated in the body prevent the metabolism of muscle tissues, which causes ache and physical fatigue, as well as depression, mood swings, and angry outbursts.
When the liver functions properly, it creates antibodies which fight allergens. Yet, if its function is impeded, the body stores them, and the brain produces histamine as a response, which is a chemical which marks the allergens for elimination.
Excessive histamine levels cause allergy symptoms like headaches, itchiness, and fogginess.
Unexplained Weight Gain
In case the liver works all the time to eliminate toxins from the body and its function is reduced, the unfiltered toxins remain in fat cells, and fat circulates from the gut through the bile and back to the liver.
When toxins build up in the liver, they lead to hormonal imbalances which cause acne. In this case, topical treatment cannot fight acne, as the root cause is inside the body.
When it cannot function properly, the liver becomes hot and this heat is transferred to the rest of the body, and causes excessive sweating, as a way to cool itself.
