Your health depends on how well your body can remove toxins.
We're exposed to chemicals, mould toxins & processed food every day. Over time, these accumulate inside our body and trust me, this is really bad for your health.
But life happens right! ...So what's a gal to do?
I'm glad you asked :)
I've got 4 simple steps you can take to start cleansing your liver today. And in case no one has ever told you, your liver is one of the hardest working organs in your body, so let's give that poor thing some serious love, shall we?
4 steps to help your liver detox
Impaired liver function will quickly lead to a lot of health issues.
For us women, this can include PMS, painful periods, bad skin, gut issues, fatigue and estrogen dominance.
The good thing is that a few small changes can have a seriously big impact on how well your liver is able to properly detoxify your body.
Step 1 - Use natural skincare & makeup
If you haven't switched over to natural personal care products then you need to. Really.
One of my fav natural brands is Edible Beauty. Use code RACH20 to save 20% off their entire range. Beautycounter is another safe option.
Think about the things that you put onto your skin, into your mouth, under your arms every day.... What's in your toothpaste? How about your deodorant?
Do yourself a favour, go to the EWG Skin Deep Database and look up the ingredients in your products! ...Your liver has to deal with this stuff.
Step 2 - Stop eating toxins
Navigating food can be tricky. Or... it can be simple!
Eat Real Food.
Ditch the processed junk food, avoid putting boxes and packets with an ingredient list a mile long into your trolley and eat more fresh produce.
Here's some food toxins that make your liver sad and stressed:
- Seed oils and trans fat
- Colours, additives & preservatives
- Refined sugar
Start by removing these 4 things girlfriend and remember, every small step is a win. Do the best you can and don't over-complicate it.
Step 3 - Eat more liver loving foods
Ok so you've taken out the crappy foods, lets add in more of what will make your body thrive!
Cruciferous vegetables are your livers bestie. Also, beetroot, carrot, dandelion tea and sweet potatoes.
Lastly, make sure you are getting sufficient protein because your liver needs it to complete all stages of detoxifying. If you are plant based, please make sure you know how to combine proteins so you are getting complete proteins.
Step 4 - Support your liver with supplements
These days, its really hard to get all of the nutrients we need from food alone. Which sucks, but it's reality.
Here's 3 incredible supplements to consider:
- Glutathione is the bodies master antioxidant and it plays a key role in liver detoxification.
- Milk Thistle is basically the King of detoxifying herbs. It protects your liver cells and supports the regeneration of healthy liver tissue.
- Liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! It's basically Mother Natures multi-vitamin :) If you're grossed out by the thought of eating it, get yourself some of these capsules.
That's it lovely lady. 4 steps that will have a huge impact on your liver and your overall health.
Keep things as easy for yourself as possible.
Don't worry about all the small details, just start making these changes. Why am I saying this? Because I know how women operate! ;)
Don't be crippled by decisions. Trust your gut. Make the changes and then make different changes later if you need to!
