It's time for renewal

After months of cold weather Spring is finally here in Iowa. Yesterday the temperature climbed to 80 F a big change from the 30s and 40s we have been experiencing for the past weeks. 
 Everything is being renewed. How about you? Have you started to renew your life?  It may be time to revisit the plans you made and the goals you set at the beginning of the year. See if you are still on track or if something has changed, what needs to be modified. Renew your commitment to yourself to grow, get healthy and evolve. Make your life meaningful and purposeful. Create a plan and take decisive action. Use every setback as feedback. In this way you will be able to see changes as opportunities to grow.  

It's time to get out and start living your dreams. 

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!

Healthy Liver For A Healthy Life

Are you constantly tired, lacking energy, finding it difficult to lose weight and or irritable? You could be feeling the effects of an unhealthy liver. 

Your liver is the largest internal organ and is responsible for many health promoting and life sustaining tasks, including weight management.  The liver supports the digestive system, controls blood sugar and regulates fat storage. It also regulates blood flow and helps make the menstrual cycles run smoothly. The liver stores and mobilizes the body’s energy. 

The liver produces bile which enables it to remove toxins from the body. Bile lubricates our intestines and works with fiber to prevent constipation. Bile removes heavy metals, pesticides, medication and other toxins from the liver for elimination from the body. Without bile, we could not convert beta-carotene into vitamin A, nor could we use calcium. 

When our bile becomes overly congested with the toxins it’s trying to filter out, it simply can’t function properly. It becomes thick, viscous and highly inefficient in breaking down fats. When this happens the liver can no longer do an effective job of processing nutrients and fats and distinguishing between the nutrients your body needs to absorb and those that are dangerous that must be removed from your bloodstream. This can result in weight gain and difficulty in losing weight. 

The malabsorption of fats may lead to symptoms that include indigestion,reflux, deficit of fat soluble vitamins, hemorrhoids, gallstones, intolerance to fatty foods, intolerance to alcohol, nausea and vomiting attacks, abdominal bloating, and constipation.

According to Traditional Chinese medicine, liver disharmony can lead to nervous system disorders include depression, mood changes, especially anger and irritability, poor concentration and "foggy brain". 


Cleansing the liver helps it produce better, more efficient bile thereby helping your body to flush toxins and break down fat more effectively. Bile also makes more energy-giving nutrients available to your body and reduces strain on your digestive and immune systems. Your elimination improves, and your colon is relieved of unnecessary burdens. The net effect: You look and feel better, and it becomes far easier for you to achieve and maintain your ideal weight.

If you are constantly tired, irritable and lacking energy a liver cleanse could put you back in good health.  Try a liver cleanse for a healthier life.

Foods for maintaining a healthy Liver

Artichokes contain antioxidant plant compounds called caffeoylquinic acids, which are used to treat hepatic (liver) disorders because they stimulate bile flow.
 
Avocado provides heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and glutathione, a compound that blocks the absorption of certain fats by the intestines that cause oxidative damage AND is essential for liver pathway cleansing. 

 Beets are among the few edible plants that contain betalains, plant pigments that give some beets their deep red color and have powerful anti-inflammatory and fungicidal properties. Betalains promote cell structure, repair and regeneration, especially in the liver
 
Broccoli is one of the cruciferous vegetables, which are named for their cross-shaped flowers and known for powerful antioxidant properties. Science has shown that a diet rich in cruciferous veggies reduces the risk of certain cancers. Other cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale. 
 
Collard greens increase bile acid binding, which makes it easier for bile to bind to large lipid molecules and pull them apart. Leftover bile acids are then excreted from the GI tract normally, taking leftover lipid molecules with them. Bile acid binding therefore helps to keep LDL "bad" cholesterol in check. 
 
Dill and fennel are plants rich in vitamins and anti-inflammatory chemicals. Dill contains chemicals that help with the activation of glutathione, a liver antioxidant that attaches to free radical molecules and disarms them. Fennel is rich in Vitamin C, which has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Fennel is also high in fiber but low in calories—an ideal cleanse food. 
 
Lemon, like all citrus fruits, is rich in antioxidant Vitamin C.

 Milk thistle is one of the frequently researched plants in association with promoting liver detoxification.  Milk thistle contains a mixture of polyphenolic compounds (plant protectors) that assist liver cells in removing toxins from healthy blood cells.
