Symptoms – Emotional problems, inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea and gall bladder disease.
Causes – Excessive eating especially fatty foods, puts pressure on the liver to produce bile. When the liver and gall bladder become overloaded, more stress falls on the small intestine to break down fats, which can lead to permeability of its walls. This results in sluggish digestive system.
What to eat – high fibre foods like leafy greens, apples and pears, and wheatgrass. Consume food that are high in fiber and supports liver and digestive system. Consume more raw vegetables, green leaves, juices and wheat grass. Drink turmeric smoothie and eat artichoke. Eat lightly and frequently, as small portions are easier for those with a gastric gut to digest. Avoid hormonal supplemented diary products. Go organic.
What to avoid – fatty foods including healthy fats, refined carbohydrates and non-organic dairy which is likely to contain hormones that add stress to the liver.
Supplements – green super food powders, dandelion, turmeric, artichoke that helps liver.
