What’s on your mind?

A statement that is related to a somewhat depressed, worrying state of mind.
If one adopts an attitude or an absent appearance, this question can sometimes be asked.
Indirectly we ask whether you are doing well, or whether there is something going on that worries you or makes you feel sad.

The liver is the organ that plays a major role in the detoxification of harmful substances. Medication use, alcohol consumption, but also unwanted harmful substances (toxins) that we come into contact with in daily life are broken down by the liver and excreted through the skin, lungs, urine and feces.

An overloaded liver can cause toxins to accumulate in the body, they are often stored in the fat cells. With the aim of temporarily ‘storing’ them there and giving the liver’s work inventory sufficient space to process the overdue work. However, if conscious attention is not paid to an overloaded liver and accumulation of waste products, the liver often does not get the chance to tap into the working reserve. After all, there is no moment of rest, there is a continuous flow of toxins to process which the liver can hardly keep up with.

The liver is especially active at night, when we sleep there is room for rest and recovery. And the same goes for recovery from harmful influences. Signals related to an overloaded liver/accumulation of toxins:
– Lying awake at night (around 2-3 am)
– Headache (nagging)
– Eczema, acne, itching, pale yellowish skin color
– Bad breath
– Poor bowel movements
– Depression

Would you like to give your liver a helping hand to increase its capacity?
> Then try to limit toxins by using natural detergents, cosmetics and cleaning products.
> Try to avoid plasticizers in plastic (BPA).
> Always wash new clothing before wearing it
> Avoid (or limit) alcoholic drinks.
> Herbs such as dandelion, nettle and milk thistle support the functioning of the liver. These herbs are often mixed in detox teas. For example, drink 2 to 3 cups of detox tea, preferably in the afternoon or evening.
> Eat ample amounts and varied fruits and vegetables, such as artichoke, grapefruit, chicory and seaweeds
> Limit your eating moments to 3-4 per day.
> Consider a supervised detox treatment

If the stored waste products are released for processing by the liver, complaints may temporarily increase. It is important for health that once released waste products do not get stuck in a ‘traffic jam’ before the liver can process them, as they can cause damage to health. It is therefore important that the detoxification process is closely monitored and, although it is activated, it does not proceed too quickly. A detox treatment can be very helpful, but my advice is to do so under supervision!
