Part 2: Symptoms of Liver Problems

"We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons." ~ Alfred E. Newman

Liver detoxes the wastes dumped into body

Your liver is the major detoxifying organ in your body. Your liver sorts through all the junk, waste, and toxic chemicals that get into your system and filters them out. Breaking down toxins chemically, your liver turns these wastes into liquid that is eliminated through your sweat, urine or stools.

Many factors can slow down the liver's ability to function at its best. Eating a diet high in fat and chemical preservatives, makes the liver work harder. When you consume too much alcohol, are exposed to a lot of environmental toxins like pesticides or have a major hormone imbalance, your liver may not be able to keep up. Other factors like aging and exposure to heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, can all slow down the liver's detoxification process.

The extra toxins your liver couldn't process are stored in your fat cells and tissues in an attempt to safely remove them from your bloodstream where they could cause immediate serious damage. When highly toxic substances, particularly heavy metals, remain in the liver and other tissue, this can lead to uncomfortable symptoms and eventually disease. For example, heavy metals that accumulate in fat and tissue can lead to dysfunction in the brain.

When the Liver Becomes Sluggish

Symptoms that show up can be hard to connect directly to a liver problem. For example, premenstrual discomfort can come from too much of the hormone estrogen circulating in the blood which occurs when your liver is not breaking down the excess.

If your liver is overloaded and stressed, symptoms may show up as:

  • Difficulty in concentrating (brain fog), reoccurring headaches, irritability
  • Problems with digestion including poor absorption of nutrients, bloating, and constipation
  • \
  • Difficulty losing weight, despite dieting
  • Rashes and other skin problems, including brownish spots appearing on the skin, often called "liver spots"
  • Chronic fatigue or lethargy
  • Dark circles under the eyes and low energy
  • Difficulty with blood sugar
  • Hormones being off balance including premenstrual complaints that are worse then usual
  • Allergic reaction to smells
  • Wakefulness at night between 2 - 4 am

Since the liver is responsible for filtering cholesterol out of your blood, ensuring your liver is clean decreases the risk of heart attack and stroke. The liver eliminates toxins, poisons and waste from your blood. When the liver becomes congested with toxins, they have nowhere to go but back into the bloodstream where they can affect cell growth including cancer cells. Preventing disease by keeping your body's filters running clean makes sense since it's a lot easier and cheaper to maintain then trying to heal a critical health condition.

Amazingly, your liver is the only internal organ naturally capable of regenerating its own damaged tissue. While this is a testament to the healing power of the human body, there are limits to the abuse your liver can take. There are things you can do to assist your liver when it is stressed.
