Liver – The liver is the chemical factory of the body. It is where chemicals are made and synthesized from given raw materials, for example, the liver converts silica into calcium. It has a big job with regard to digestion.
Some researchers believe liver bile circulates in the body preventing germ cells and tumour cells from forming. Germ cells, in this case, refer to cells that can potentially subdivide and grow into a mass of tissue similar to the germ cells that produce a fetus and baby; in essence, this is what a tumour is. Bile salt nips this process in the bud thus preventing uncontrolled growth.
Chinese Medicine calls the liver the General. If the liver is congested, then all the internal organs will suffer. Liver Qi is responsible for harmonious energy flow through all the meridians in the body. From this idea, we can perceive that all tension-related pain in the body is a result of liver Qi stagnation. Therefore, by cleaning the liver you harmonize energy flow throughout the body.
Indications of weakened liver/gallbladder: pain in mid-back, right front side under the ribcage, white or pale stool, liver spots on the skin, bloating after eating fats and dairy, anaemia.
