Often overlooked, when the liver is over stressed, all other organs start to dysfunction. Our liver constantly working to break down not only the environment and external toxins that invade our body, but also those produced during normal metabolic processes in the body – *internal toxins*.
The liver is perhaps the most congested of all organs in our body. Too much fat, chemicals, intoxicants, and denatured food all disrupt the hundreds of intricate biochemical processes of the liver.
One of the first signs of liver disharmony is emotional difficulty related to anger: impatience, frustration, resentment, violence, belligerence, rudeness, edginess, arrogance, stubbornness, aggression and an impulsive and explosive personality. Depression, mood swings as well as excessively emotional in general are liver-related. Tiredness, dark circles under eyes, poor digestion and dull skin are also symptoms of poor liver function.
