Migraines and/or headaches can be the result of toxins in or thickening of the blood. Since the liver is responsible for blood purification and toxin removal, a headache arising from these circumstances can benefit from improved liver health.
Acne and/or psoriasis - One of the tasks of the liver is to cleanse the blood. If the liver is not functioning well, it will be unable to effectively cleanse the blood which can result in skin problems ranging from acne to psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. Therefore if liver function is impaired, it could cause skin problems, so supporting and protecting the liver can also improve the skin.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome - As the liver secretes digestive fluids via the small intestine, it has a significant role in digestive disorders. Therefore, improving liver health often improves digestive health.
Gallbladder disease (includes gallstones and bile obstruction diseases)- The gallbladder stores bile, a substance the liver produces to aid digestion. Since the gallbladder and liver share a close relationship, improving the liver's health can positively effect the gallbladder.
Biliary Atresia - This disease results in inflammation and obstruction of the ducts which carry bile from the liver into the intestine. Protecting the liver from incurring further damage can help it cope with the back-up of bile that commonly occurs with this disease.
Hemochromatosis is a condition where the body absorbs and stores too much iron. Excessive amounts of iron can lead to liver injury, so protecting the liver can minimize or eliminate damage.
Primary Biliary Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease that causes slow, progressive destruction of bile ducts in the liver. Protecting the liver from incurring further damage can hamper the progress of this disease.
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis is a disease in which the bile ducts inside and outside the liver become narrowed due to inflammation and scarring. Protecting the liver from incurring further damage can help prevent scarring.
Wilson's Disease is an inherited disorder of copper secretion by the liver, which can result in copper accumulation in the liver and ultimately cause liver damage. Protecting the liver can insulate it from this toxic accumulation.
Diabetes is associated with liver disease. Poorly controlled blood sugar can increase the risk of fatty liver disease. On the other hand, some types of liver disease - such as hemochromatosis - increase the risk of diabetes. Protecting the liver can reduce the risk diabetes poses to the liver.
High cholesterol - The liver makes and distributes most of the cholesterol in our body. When liver function is impaired, cholesterol levels can skyrocket. Clinical studies demonstrate that protecting and supporting the liver can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Obesity - Liver Disease is linked to obesity. Protecting the liver can enhance the body's ability to metabolize fat.
Reye's syndrome - this acute, often fatal disease (secondary to flu or other infections) can result in fat accumulation in the liver. Protecting the liver can enhance fat metabolization and maintain liver function.
