Liver Health

Liver Health Protocol:

 The liver is one of the hardest working organs in the body. It performs hundreds of important functions and its health is critical to the health of the body as a whole. One of the primary functions of the liver is to process all toxins and help the body eliminate them. Our liver health protocol uses nutrients that support healthy liver function and assist with detoxification.

Dietary Suggestions for a healthy liver:

  • Avoid all processed foods, especially simple sugars, simple starches and alcohol. Excess sugar can cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In fact, sugar and alcohol have a very similar negative effect on the liver.
  • Avoid taking unnecessary medications. Medications can overburden the liver. Acetaminophen can be especially dangerous and lead to accidental liver damage and even death. Do not take over the counter acetaminophen in higher than the recommended dose and be especially cautious when combing 2 or more medications that each contain acetaminophen.
  • Eat healthful fats, including: butter, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, walnut oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil, etc. Avoid all hydrogenated fats and processed oils like: Crisco, margarine, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, “salad” oil, etc. Avoid eating fried foods in restaurants as these are mostly prepared using low quality oils that are highly inflammatory. Poor quality fats cause the liver to produce poor quality bile which can lead to gallbladder and liver disease.
  • Eat quality protein like wild seafood, pastured meats, wild game, pastured eggs, organic poultry, etc. Quality counts!
  • Eat plenty of vegetables! Healthy vegetables include: leafy greens, asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, artichokes, green beans, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, etc.
  • Eat low sugar fruits like apples and berries.
  • Dairy, especially pasteurized dairy, can be very inflammatory. Consider going dairy-free (except for butter). Healthy dairy-free milks include: almond, hemp and coconut milks.
  • Eat nuts and seeds, as these are good sources of quality fats, proteins and minerals.
