What Is Sluggish Liver and How Homeopathy Can Help ?

Posted by Pradeep Maurya on

    Liver, the largest organ of our body performs around 500 vital functions which lead to good health. To know where the liver is located, put your right hand over the end of your right rib cage, just below the diaphragm – that’s where the liver is located. Some of the main functions performed by the liver are breakdown, metabolism and detoxification of hormones, fats, alcohol, toxins and drugs, excretion of bilirubin and cholesterol, protein synthesis, production of bile, and generation of energy and warmth that keeps us alive.
    A suboptimal function of the liver is commonly due to poor diet and lifestyle habits. Eating a diet high in fats and sugar, consuming alcohol, taking recreational drugs can add to liver’s workload and lead to damage of the liver. Some other factors like being overweight, hormonal imbalance, overuse of painkillers, viral infections, autoimmune diseases and exposure to harmful chemicals like pesticides or industrial chemicals can contribute to the sluggish liver activity.
