Spring is here, and the weather in Sydney has been pretty amazing so far. As we come out of winter, it is really important to recharge the liver, by eliminating certain foods so your body is at optimum health for spring, and then summer.
The liver is the largest organ in the body and its main function is to keep the body clean and healthy. A healthy liver eliminates toxins, regulates hormones, maintains blood-sugar levels, and metabolises fats, proteins and carbohydrates. A unhealthy liver can lead to poor sleep, irritability, hormone in balance (acne) and feeling foggy and lethargic.
Ways to heal your liver include eliminating dairy, gluten, sugar and caffeine, but also eating plenty of leafy greens, colourful fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, chicken, eggs, include herbs and spices in your meals, drinking lots of water, nuts, and drinking bone broth is also really important to help boost those vitamins and minerals.
Detoxing takes the load off our liver so when our liver functions well, then our whole body can function smoothly.
