Your Liver and Your Health

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) virtually all adults have a liver problem. This is because it's the organ most susceptible to the stress and strain and hustle and bustle of modern day living. Other organs are affected by modern day living too, of course, but TCM says your liver is the main one.

Dietary reasons contributing to liver problems include: Overeating in general but especially of junk foods, fried, fatty, greasy foods, hot and spicy foods and heavy, hard to digest foods.

Lifestyle reasons include: Lack of exercise, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, drugs, over the counter and prescription medications. Also, anyone with a long term or chronic illness or with long term or chronic pain is, according to TCM, pretty much assured of also having a liver imbalance.

Emotional reasons for liver problems include: Stress, anger, frustration, irritability and depression.

Few adults living in the modern world could say none of the above apply to them. It's why liver-balancing herbal formulas are worldwide the most commonly prescribed ones in TCM.

The special report I am writing on the liver expands on all of this. If you're an adult, particularly a city-living, busy, working adult, you need this information. You'll know how to identify a liver imbalance and what action to take.

The report may be ready next week. Meanwhile, if stress is a part of your life, it's affecting your liver, so check out the Stress section of my website and start doing something about it.

Let me know if you have any questions.
