The human liver is a large glandular organ in the abdomen of the vertebrates. It is deemed as one of the natural detoxification of the body. It is responsible, along with the kidney, to get rid of impurities from the body. However, liver problems can be a threat to this important process permitting toxins to invade and strive in the body causing a decrease in immunity and posing an health risk.
Liver problems can be caused by continuous consumption of alcohol, consumption of tobacco products, exposure to chemicals, second hand smoke and other toxins from the environment, medication or drugs, a history of fatty liver as well as a history of gall bladder problem.
Liver diseases can cause fatigue, hemorrhages, jaundice, decrease of energy as well as insanity.
Chemicals, fumes in the environments, the food we eat can affect the health in a disastrous way. They all can lead to toxic invasion and the body needs to be cleansed from theses unwanted toxins. So the liver needs to be functioning to aid with this process, hence the use of liver herbs. Some people adopt to other liver flush such as a lengthy fasting from juice.
It is therefore very important to keep the liver healthy or treat liver
conditions with natural remedies. There are medicinal herbs which can
help with a liver detoxification or liver cleansing. Some people refer
to it as a liver flush and bitter herbs are very good for the cleansing of the liver.
