CHART FOR LIVER HEALTH

We take so much for granted, very often come to realise when it’s a little too late, damage is done, & deterioration has deeply set in, so now is the time to take charge for improved quality of life! If ever you ask anyone what they would love most, they will almost indefinitely mention health as number one top of the list. With health we can climb mountains, swim across oceans, help others, find love, and obtain wealth.

We consume food at least three times a day on average, why not make that fuel count and ‘nutrify’ each and every single organ and living cell, as we have one body, one life, lets make it count.

Consuming healthy well balanced meals from all food groups (fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, legumes, grains, herbs, spice, edible roots & flowers), as well as eating from rainbow colours (white, yellow, orange, red, green, red, blue, purple, black, brown), daily sunshine D,  exercise, and relaxation leads to good health.

In today’s world where toxins are rife, they linger in the air that we breathe, swim in our waters, and leach into our depleted poisoned soils, it’s imperative that we start to heal ourselves with whole vegan foods, in order to detoxify our bodies & our minds from the daily garbage, grunge, heavy toxic metals, pollutants, and the violence, and start cleaning up and taking good care of our ecosystems. Health starts on our plates, as does peace.

A life giving filtration system that removes toxins, cleanses, rejuvenates, & nourishes our well being. This organ filters the blood coming through the digestive tract before passing through to the rest of our body. It makes perfect sense to keep it healthy & functional. Consuming clean whole vegan foods in combinations from food group and colour variations together with clean water, good rest & relaxation, exercise, and sunshine D are beneficial for good health. Certain foods seemingly aid & nutrify liver health more, such as beets, broccoli, sweet potatoes, lemons, lentils, apples, garlic, onion, leafy greens however, below is a further guideline that encourages good liver health.
