What are the 5 top regular practices you should do for a healthy liver?
Do you know which organ in the human body can regenerate itself?
Not only that, but it is the largest one in the body. It is an important part of human functioning and helps in digestion, detoxification, and metabolism. It takes out the toxins from the rasa dhatu (plasma) and filters rakta dhatu (blood). All in all, it is an extremely important organ in the body which makes it imperative to have the right kind of balance. We all know Ayurveda follows a different approach for the treatment which has no such side effects and complications. As per the Ayurvedic experts, certain practices should be followed on a regular basis to protect liver health. Let’s talk you through them one by one.
Tip 1: Periodic cleansing
Although the liver performs the functioning of detoxification, sometimes it can accumulate toxins due to improper diet and sedentary lifestyle. The best part is that the liver understands how it needs to heal itself but it should be given the support it needs. Spring is the best season for the liver to detoxify itself. Make sure that you get the periodic cleansing from your Ayurvedic doctor.
Tip 2: Pitta-pacifying Diet
Pitta is in close relation with the liver, so make sure that the right kind of diet is followed to support cleansing and liver health. Make sure your diet has bitter-taste and cooling foods. Some of the options are karela (bitter gourd), amla, cucumber, beetroots, carrots, and green leafy vegetables. Make sure to eat an apple/pear in the morning. It is better to limit the consumption of sour, spicy, and salty food.
Tip 3: Intake of detoxifying fluids
When you consume water in fewer amounts, the blood becomes thick and that will make it difficult for the detoxification process to occur correctly. So, make sure that you drink 7 to 8 glasses of water in a day. You can make a detox tea which needs:
- Honey, If needed
Take a pinch of turmeric and add it into the water, let it boil properly. Squeeze into lemon juice (1 tsp). If you want you can add honey to it.
Tip 4: Maintain your body weight
Most importantly, you need to keep your body weight right. If you are overweight, it will increase the risk of fatty liver disease. So, make sure that you exercise on an everyday basis to maintain the body weight and keep your metabolism functioning in the right manner.
Tip 5: Acknowledge your emotions
The liver is not only important for food digestion but it also acts on the digestion of emotions. If your emotions like hate, envy, anger, frustration, envy, and impatience are not balanced then there is an imbalance of pitta. Therefore, it is important to control the emotions and for that, you need to practice yoga, pranayama, meditation and reduce the strain of daily life.
Tip 6: Do not take illicit products
Alcohol and drug consumption are extremely harmful to liver health. There are many youngsters out there who practice unwanted behaviors. So, make sure you practice to live a healthy and better life by following the Ayurvedic practices.
