Love Your Liver

Posted on Nov 24, 2019


What are the primary functions of the liver? This organ handles enzyme activation, bile production/excretion, metabolism of fats/proteins/carbs, synthesis of plasma proteins, and more. It’s an essential organ.

How’s your liver doing? If you eat a lot of junk food, don’t exercise much, and are obese, chances are your liver isn’t doing that great. You could help heal it by losing weight— eating less junk food and exercising more could work.

Have you heard of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)? It’s the build-up of extra fat in liver cells— not caused by alcohol. A fatty liver is one where more than 5 – 10% of the liver’s weight comes from fat. Fatty livers swell up; they can become more prone to damage.

There are different types of liver disease. Your own immune system could be attacking your liver. It could be infected with a virus. Chemicals could be injuring it… but long story short, a liver that’s not healthy and working properly is not a good thing. A severely damaged liver could lead to death.

It’s important to catch liver disease early in the inflammation/fibrosis stages, where it can be treated successfully. Livers do have the ability to heal themselves if the patient makes the right choices and cares to get better! You’ve got to “love your liver” if you want to live a long life.

Can a chiropractor help you and your liver? Yes. A liver can become sick due to a misaligned spine. Nerves that control the liver come from the spine. If/when the spine is misaligned, the nerves don’t work as intended. Chiropractic care involves adjusting the spine, which helps the body heal itself, with liver function being restored. Most people think that chiropractors only work on backs and necks, but the reality is that chiropractic care can and does affect all parts of the body, even the liver!

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
