The liver is a critical organ. It transforms toxins into waste that your body can safely expel via urine or . It’s a tough job, especially considering just how prevalent toxins are in our modern environment. With time and a lack of proper care to avoid those toxins, the liver becomes overwhelmed and sluggish. Instead of getting rid of toxins, it stores them in fat cells – especially around the belly.
That segues us neatly into our first sign of a sluggish liver.
With a sluggish liver, calorie reduction and hours spent at the gym per week mean little; that weight will keep piling on. The body’s tendency to store unfiltered toxins in its fat cells is just one reason for this.
A properly functioning liver creates antibodies that attack allergens. When it gets sluggish, though, the body stores those allergens. Your brain responds by producing histamine – a chemical meant to ‘mark’ allergens for removal. When too much histamine builds up in your body over an extended period of time, you wind up with allergy symptoms like headaches, itchiness and fogginess.
This point is especially important if you’ve only recently developed seasonal allergies; your body may have temporarily lost its ability to process those allergens.
