After my last post on our 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse™ we received a number of questions about a different type of cleanse: a liver cleanse.
Outside the heart, your liver may be your body’s most important organ. Your liver acts as a filter for your blood as well as storing it and regulating its constituents. Its functions range from detoxification to metabolism.
Regulating body functions as the liver does, it can affect both your emotional and mental health. While it almost sounds cliché to mention, today’s lifestyle of poor diet and stress can injure your liver. And if your liver fails to operate efficiently, the results include a loss of memory and sleep and can cause a weight gain.
The holiday season is upon us, and that means cakes, pies, cookies, eggnog, and lots of holiday parties! It also means that the average American will gain somewhere between one to two pounds and eat nearly twice as much saturated fat and sugar. We’re on a quest to find out if a cleanse today can pay dividends in the coming weeks.
Healthy living is a habit. At some point, most of us have determined and resolved to live a healthier life. Even more often, we’ve probably stumbled. And with modern diets often lacking whole-food nutrition, you can see how this can influence your quality of life. Research supports that diets low in fat and highly processed foods and high in nutritive value and fiber decrease your risk for cancer, heart disease, obesity, and a number of other ailments.
