Chances are, if you are experiencing sluggishness or prolonged periods of digestive problems, it may be time to give your liver some love.

The liver is the largest gland in the body and is located on the upper right side of your abdomen just below the diaphragm. It is essential for many metabolic functions, bile production and the filtering of fats, alcohol, drugs and other toxins from the system.

The liver has a big job and is often taken for granted or ignored. Prolonged use of medications, excess consumption of fatty foods and alcohol and exposure to environmental toxins can cause liver congestion.

As spring approaches and it is time to do some spring-cleaning, internally that is. After a long season of heavier winter eating, spring is a great time to consider a whole body cleanse.

Cleansing once every quarter is important for a few reasons. A good cleanse (also called detox) can rid your body of built-up toxins from processed foods, pharmaceuticals, air-borne pollutants and any other substances considered toxic or hard on the body-system.

Cleansing also gives your body’s digestive tract a chance to lighten its load. The theory behind giving your body a break is rooted in the fact that it expends a lot of energy on the digestive process and spends less energy in the healing and rebuilding process. Consider a cleanse equal to giving your body-system a vacation. …read more of Spring-Cleaning from the Inside Out: Making the Right Choices here
