The liver is the largest organ in the human body and it is located in the upper right-hand portion of the abdominal cavity, beneath the diaphragm, and on top of the stomach, right kidney, and intestines. The liver is one of the most active organs, producing important cholesterol, filtering toxins from the blood stream (purifying blood), producing bile to break down fats, storing sugars, metabolizing vitamins and minerals and proteins, regulation of hormones, stores various nutrients, especially A, D, B12 and iron, for release as needed, converts lactic acid from a toxic waste to an important storage fuel, removes some fat-soluble toxins from the body by first dissolving them in bile salts, then dumping the bile and toxin mixture into the intestine for eventual excretion.
Nearly all the blood returning from the intestinal tract to the heart passes through the liver. Liver health is becoming an increasing concern throughout the world. Liver health is often severely affected by alcohol and drug abuse and the liver may also be damaged as a side effect of some drugs or treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.
The liver's main function is to act as a filter, as it rids the body of foreign toxins and impurities. Commonly referred to as a "filter," the liver is actually more subtle and sophisticated than a passive filter. It is the body's second largest organ and certainly the busiest, performing 500 separate tasks in the body. The liver regulates body functions which affect emotional and mental activities. The liver is the master organ of detoxification
The maintenance of liver health responds well to a holistic approach, including complementary medicine, avoidance of alcohol, drugs and other toxins as well as a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Abdominal massage is also beneficial for liver health. Abdominal liver massage is the massage of an organ through the abdominal wall using a special visceral technique. During this practice, abdomen is affected with the help of specific massaging techniques. This leads to the restoration of blood supply to the internal organs of the abdominal cavity, saturation of the body with oxygen and relaxation of spasmodic areas. During massage, all bile and stagnant blood is replaced by the new fresh blood, and toxins are removed from liver cells
In addition to massage for healing and restoring liver function, it is also very helpful to do liver cleansing to remove stagnant bile from it.
It is very beneficial to make rosehip infusion :
Put 5 tablespoons of rosehip into one liter of boiling water and leave it overnight. In the morning, add 3-4 tablespoons of sorbitol or a bag of magnesia to a glass of this infusion. It is also recommended on the day of cleansing to eat sour berries and fruits, which also stimulate the release of bile.
It is not recommended to do such cleaning if you have stones in the bile ducts.
