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!

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
