What’s the liver got to do with it?
- conversion of thyroid hormone
- it stores blood
- creates proteins and fats for hormone production
- releases glucose when needed
- produces bile
- detoxifies the blood
- supports digestion
- and so much more!
Your liver partners together with your gallbladder, and when your liver is overworked, it adds additional work for the gallbladder. In traditional Chinese medicine, the liver correlates to anger, and the gallbladder to bitterness; an overworked liver can cease functioning optimally after you have cared for a loved one, or friend with a long illness.
Adding green non-starchy vegetables like spinach and kale is one way to support your liver and gall bladder. One of the top ways you can improve your overall health is to drink water from a pure source daily (half your body weight in ounces). BUT please don’t drink pH water! We have found that drinking alkaline water impacts the pH of your stomach while it’s diluting the acids and enzymes, which interrupts natural digestion.
