Our liver is one of the hardest working organs in our body. It processes all things coming in our body including food, drink, toxins from the environment the medication we take, and it produces bile to help with food digestion. Without a fully functioning liver, your body will start to decline in many ways. Up to 6,000 people require liver transplants every year in the United States, and you can expect poor self-care to be one of the leading causes of this statistic.
On the other hand, it’s hard to put the blame on people. The staple of the American diet, from top to bottom, has an inordinate, unhealthy amount of sugar and processed food. This means that livers across the country are working overtime to process the good stuff from the bad. The liver is strong, but if you’re looking to improve your health, you must lessen its load and improve its function. Through acupuncture and intake of glutathione, ActiveMed Integrative Health can help you restore balance in your liver.
What are its Benefits?
Acupuncture amplifies the body’s ability to heal itself, and in the case of the liver, our treatment is a detoxifier. As toxins from food, drink, medications and the environment build up and put too much load on the liver, acupuncture can help decrease the load by improving liver function and other bodily processes.
Increasing the body’s production of glutathione is very important in preserving and improving liver health. Eating the right foods and staying away from the wrong foods is very important as well. Just taking time to exercise properly, eat right and receive a few acupuncture treatments can make all the difference in improving your liver’s function.
