This is something v useful we should all consider for our health and wellbeing.
The body depends on the liver to perform a number of vital functions such as:
– Cleansing blood (e.g.neutralizing and destroying poisonous substances);
– Regulating the supply of body fuel (e.g. producing, storing and supplying quick energy – glucose, to keep the mind alert and the body active);
– Manufacturing many essential body proteins involved in transporting substances in the blood and providing resistance to infection;
– Producing bile which eliminates toxic substances from the body and aids digestion;
– Regulating the balance of many hormones;
– Regulating body cholesterol by producing it, excreting it, and converting it to other essential substances
– Performing literally hundreds of other specific functions!
With the obvious importance of this organ to our overall physical well-being it is no accident that the ancient practices of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine have endowed the liver with such importance in both our Spiritual and material makeup. Both Indian and Chinese medical practices acknowledge the effect of a ‘hot’ liver on the individual, and in fact offer specific remedies with which to ‘cool’ down this important organ.
