How to cleanse the liver of toxins and slags
In modern life, our body and each organ individually are under great stress. Every minute they have to work to cope with all food products, drugs and poisons that enter the body.
First and foremost on the path of all toxins is the liver. It carries the greatest responsibility for their clearance and elimination. That is why it is so important to listen to the first "bells" coming from this body when it is slagging (intoxication).
Impaired liver detoxification function
A few words should be said about the signs of deterioration of the liver. Briefly, its function can be described as follows: transformation of toxins (modification), their binding or neutralization and elimination.
Most often, an excessive load on this body is created by:
- harmful products;
- unhealthy diet;
- occupational chemical hazards (chronic industrial intoxication).
All this depletes the reserves of enzymes involved in the inactivation (neutralization) of harmful compounds, and inhibits their elimination from the body.
The result of such changes is a violation of the biochemical processes of binding of xenobiotics (poisons), thickening and stagnation of bile in the ducts and gall bladder.
Indications and contraindications for cleaning the liver
The main indications for cleansing the liver of toxins are:
- thickening and stagnation of bile in the ducts;
- increase in gallbladder;
- slow bile evacuation;
- violation of food digestion.
The consequence of this condition can be:
- stool disorders;
- dermatitis and skin manifestations of intoxication.
Definitely carry out liver detoxification can not:
- pregnant and lactating women;
- in acute inflammatory diseases;
- in oncology;
- with severe chronic diseases (for example, diabetes, cholelithiasis).
With any method of purification, it is necessary to conduct a preliminary examination. The latter will help to avoid some of the dangerous complications arising on the background of detoxification. Be sure to conduct a study of blood and urine, ultrasound of the abdominal organs to identify stones in the gallbladder. Based on the results, you can choose the method of cleaning the liver. So, how to clean the liver of toxins and slags?
