More About the Liver
A lot of my studies have been on the liver, and just how important they are to our bodies and good health. Our livers are responsible for so much that we absolutely must become more aware of how to keep it healthy. Our livers break down all our foods, cleanses the toxins in our bodies, processes all of our sensory input, and is our heat-furnace. It’s the only organ in the body that can regenerate.
Our current health care system is structured around pain killers, antibiotics, and medication for everything you can imagine. These pills are extremely hard on our livers. Combine these medications with use of alcohol, drugs, heavy metals, and pesticides, you have the perfect formula for killing off your liver early.
Our livers are extremely abused in our society, and adding Nori Seaweed to your diet can play an important role in helping to heal our bodies and livers.
