LIVER HEALTH AND FERTILITY
WHY IS SO IMPORTANT WE TAKE CARE OF THE LIVER?
The liver is an extraordinary organ which performs lots of functions, among which are:
- break down fats
- produce energy and heat
- ensure the correct functioning of the thyroid, (synthesising essential hormones for the thyroid to use), therefore also affecting your metabolism
- deactivate old hormones to return in blood stream
These are all essential factors in order to have a healthy regular cycle and have a chance of getting pregnant!
HOW CAN WE TAKE CARE OF THE LIVER?
Manual lymphatic drainage and Reflexology are great therapies that may enhance liver function as the therapist can use specific techniques in order to support the liver and help the body to cleanse in a more efficient way
Supplements and herbs that help metabolise food, eliminate waste and balance hormones, such as: B vitamin; Milk Thistle (also help replace damaged liver cells); liver support supplement; holy basil; dandelion root; turmeric.
Avoid alcohol/ coffee/ packaged food/ non organic/ refined sugar (decrease 50% ability to fight infection)
Prepare your food properly: cook slow at low temperature/ soak, sprout grains, beans, nuts and seeds

Do moderate exercise and build your practice step by step consistently. As the circulation raises, the liver is more able to release blood to the brain/organs and tendons. Jogging is one of the best natural anti-stress as it uses blood sugar, fatty deposits, cortisol (stress hormone) in the bloodstream
Reduce your exposure to toxic substances. The liver recognises toxic substances and converts them into harmless material to be expelled. Therefore avoid: chemically sprayed crops, unnecessary medication, drugs and unprotected sex, chemical household and beauty products. Use ESSENTIAL OILS instead! It’s easy, very cost effective and toxins free!
