Want less "junk in yo trunk"?

Posted by Leticia, 15 May 07

Everyone here has probably heard of cirrhosis of the liver. A disease usually caused by excessive drinking. Well did you know there are some doctors that believe that liver dysfunction can also be the cause of a sluggish metabolism and possibly obesity? What you know or don't know about your body parts can play a very important role in your health. If you've been struggling with your weight, and all the diets in the world haven't helped, perhaps a look-see at the liver is all you need.

Hey, this is Leticia. Excuse me for a moment while I sound like a very bad commercial trying to sell you drugs for a disease that you didn't know existed let alone could possible have. Do you or anyone you know suffer from: Abdominal bloating, Obesity, Poor digestion, Frequent fatigue, Headaches, Unpleasant moods, Bad breath and coated tongue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Sluggish metabolism, Excessive body heat, High cholesterol, Gall bladder disease, Allergies, High blood pressure, Sugar cravings, Intolerance to alcohol or the inability to lose weight? If so, you may want to cleanse your liver.

It's seems that recently, cleansing our bodies has become quite a fad. They even have store-fronts where you can go and people will stick a tube (there), and clean out your colon. Talk about a crappy job. We've always heard the importance of taking care of our hearts, brain, and kidneys. But no one talks about the largest organ in the human body. Did you know that your liver weighs between two and three pounds and has over 500 vital functions?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

To name a few, the liver is responsible for getting all the toxic junk out of your body. It produces the bile which is really what carries away waste and breaks down fats in the small intestine during digestion. Are you still with me? Let me break it down more. If your liver is not working to full capacity, and say your fatty toxins can't be converted to water soluble waste (so that they can exit your body through your sweat, urine, bile, saliva, etc.), than what do you think happens?

Yep, they stay inside your body. If the liver can't get rid of the fatty toxins, they are deposited inside the fatty liver cell. They can even travel to other places inside your body, like your brain, abdomen, thighs and butt. The really ugly part is that you can exercise and count calories all day long, if you don't clean and detoxify your liver, it's like changing the oil in your car but, never changing the filter. Nasty!

Now, you know that Leticia is not a doctor. However, I do have the hots for that McDreamy on Grey's Anatomy. My point, if you are having any symptoms, issues, or problems with your body, go see a doctor. Ask them what they think about the liver cleansing diets that are on the market. Then take care of yourself by eating right, exercising daily and loving the only body you've got.

There's nothing wrong with having more to love, however, having less can be oh, so much fun too!!! Be healthy.

    As a species, we are living longer than ever. Certainly as a nation/culture we are eating more processed foods than ever before. Look at the ingredients on any foods that are not raw and a great number of the ingredients are, for better or for worse (usually for worse), in there for better shelf life not for better health. The phrase yydrogenated oils, for example, comes from the Ancient Greek and means "just put this on my love handles (or trunk/belly etc.). Add into the mix any extra toxins we ingest from alcohol to ice cream and we just add to the problem. What that means in combination is that we spend more time putting more useless garbage into our bodies. That means that the various organs that cleanse out the toxins are put under heavy pressure. I have found that routinely cleansing those organs in combination with eating unprocessed foods as much as possible helps me to feel healthier and keep my weight (in combination with regular exercise) under control. Then there is my Mom, who was 90 in July, and who eats Goldfish crackers and yoghurt as her health regimen and to whom organ cleansing means custodial work in the choir loft.

    Colon cleasnings is the best route to go. I get them often and also take other products to help my colon. It is one of the fast ways to lose weight if you are o a diet and exercising. No more bloating and gas. Also and good tip is to change the way you eat. There are pleanty of health food stores around that can help you get on the right path to a healthier life. Once you go organic it is hard to switch back.

    I've always heard about colon cleansing but can't bear the thought of having a tube shoved up my you know what! I'll have to see if there are other methods besides that.
