HealthScan Video Series: Basics of the Liver

Learning Goals and Outline:

The basics of the Liver

Goal for this video: Understand how the liver affects the whole body, and practical ways to support it.

Liver: The chemical factory of the body

  • Metabolizes all the hormones of the body
  • Affects digestion, produces enzymes and bile (problems often cause problems with gall bladder)
  • Affects the blood flow from the lower half of body.
  • Varicose veins and hemorrhoids often connected to an overloaded liver. (Anastomosis)

Common symptoms associated with “overloaded” liver

  • Sharp pain/bloating after eating
  • Chronic mid/right back pain, referring to right shoulder/neck
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Skin issues – Acne, eczema, hives, rashes
  • Excessive anger can shut down the liver

Supporting the Liver

  • Immune Support supplement
  • Lemon juice in clean drinking water. (Start slow, a lot of lemon right away could cause a rapid detox that would result in other unpleasant symptoms)
  • Other liver support products from your local health store that test as beneficial for you with the General Screen.
