How to use diet, herbs, massage, and other practices to detoxify, strengthen, and regenerate your liver. The liver is key to the optimal health of the body. Shouldering the heaviest responsibility for keeping the body's internal terrain clean, the liver not only filters toxins and cellular by-products out of the blood like other excretory organs, it also neutralizes poisons, microbes, heavy metals, and carcinogens. By supporting the liver, we support the health of the entire body. In this practical guide to cleansing and detoxifying the liver, Christopher Vasey shows how many features of modern living--such as overeating, medications, cigarettes, alcohol, food additives, and environmental pollution--overtax this powerhouse of an organ. This leads to weakening of the liver and congestion with toxins, which in turn can lead to illness, including cardiovascular problems, allergies, headaches, constipation, respiratory issues, and skin conditions, as the toxins the overburdened liver cannot filter out find their way to other areas of the body. Detailing how the liver functions, the author explains how to use diet, herbs, massage, and other practices to detoxify, strengthen, and regenerate your liver. He includes simple charts and questionnaires to help you determine to what degree your liver function is compromised. He shows how a simple change of diet along with the use of hepatic herbs will often have immediate benefits for the liver and the immune system. He explains specific foods to avoid and how taking supplements, such as trace elements of sulfur, accelerate the liver's ability to neutralize heavy metals. He details 9 plants that are most effective in detoxifying the liver, such as dandelion and rosemary, and provides instructions for their safe use. He also describes liver exercises and massage techniques as well as the use of external aids, such as a hot-water bottle, to stimulate liver activity. Offering an accessible yet detailed approach to supporting the liver, the author shows how bringing the liver back to full health and function has far-reaching effects for the whole body.

In this revised and updated edition, renowned cardiologist William Davis explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges and reverse myriad health problems. Every day we eat food products made of wheat. As a result millions of people experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventative cardiologist William Davis calls 'wheat bellies'. According to Davis, that fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth or too much butter: it's down to the whole grain food products so many people eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic - and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In Wheat Belly Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering being sold to the public as 'wheat' and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new, wheat-free lifestyle. Benefits include: substantial weight loss, correction of cholesterol abnormalities, relief from arthritis, mood benefits and prevention of heart disease. Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, and numerous case studies, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at what is truly making us sick.
Do you have high cholesterol? And/or high blood pressure? Gallbladder problems? Perhaps a diagnosis of fatty liver? Are you tired all the time? Do you crave sweet snacks? Are your hormones in turmoil? Your doctor may have tested you for type 2 diabetes and found this is not a problem... yet. But you almost certainly already have its precursor - insulin resistance. Registered Nurse Hanna Purdy shares her long experience in Public Health Nursing, as well as with improving her family's health, to present this practical, evidence-based guide to what `insulin resistance' means, what causes it and what to do about it, including how to start a ketogenic diet, with the emphasis on the quality of food eaten and the impact good food can have on the body and mind. As she shows, insulin resistance is caused by chronic, sub-clinical inflammation and lies behind many common chronic illnesses that are now reaching epidemic levels even in children. Find out how to reverse it with an inflammation-reducing diet in an easy, sustainable way that is compatible with busy family life.
