A strong root flavored tea with a kick to help assist in liver function, blood cleansing and internal detox. 7 day detox tea.
A strong root flavored tea with a kick to help assist in liver function and restoration of cells and membranes.
Some signs of an overtaxed Liver are PMS, headaches, indigestion, hayfever, acne, bloat, Hepatitis, boils, carbuncles, fertility concerns, jaundice,digestive disturbances, immune deficiency, chronic debilitating diseases, nervous system conditions, gall bladder concerns, kidney concerns, menstruation concerns, endometriosis, poor fat and protein digestion, fatigue or chronic fatigue syndrome. Obstruction of liver energy can cause intense feelings of frustration, rage, anger, and these emotions in turn further disrupt liver energy and suppress liver function, in a vicious self destructive cycle.
Detox blend is good for any type of liver ailment and will act as a stimulant to increase all liver functions. It will also act as a liver protector/strengthener, a treatment for liver stagnation or deficieny (overtaxed Liver), skin cleanser by liver cleansing and a bile stimulant that will increase fat digestion and protein synthesis.
Tea will also aid in inflammtion reduction by assisting the Liver in its breakdown of naturally occurring cortisone. Tea will also act as a strong blood cleanser.
The liver is the bodies Master Detoxifier and needs to be treated with much respect. In Chinese medicine the Liver was considered to "house the soul" and was responsible for the flow of energy or 'Chi'. It is believed that the name of the Liver derives from an Anglo-Saxon verb meaning 'to live'.
When the liver does not function properly it can cause a wide variety of ailments that we are not aware of. Many daily ailments and "quirks" are liver related and can be overcome as long as the liver is functioning properly. By giving it a good cleanse it will ensure your health to be at its best.
The liver stores large amounts of sugar in the form of glycogen, which it releases into the blood stream as glucose whenever the body requires extra infusions of metabolic energy, receives all amino acids extracted from food by the small intestines and recombines them to synthesize the various forms of protein required for growth and repair of bodily tissues, controls the peripheral nervous system, which regulates muscular activity and tension and controls ligaments and tendons, which together with muscles regulate motor activity and determine physical coordination.
The Liver also manufactures bile needed for absorption and digestion of fats, digests worn out red blood cells and bacteria, stores all fat soluble vitamins including Vitamins A, E, D, K, and B-12 and metabolizes all other vitamins, deactivates and balances hormones such as estrogens and the corticosteriods and other steroids and manufactures the bloof clotting chemicals prothrombin and fibrinogen, which are needed to keep the body from bleeding to death when injured. Liver function is reflected externally in the condition of finger and toenails and by the eyes and vision. Blurry vision is often a result of liver malfunction rather than an eye problem, and even Western medicine recognizes the symptomatic yellow eyes of liver jaundice.
Herbs in this blend are Hepatics (aid the Liver, increase bile flow with active bitter principles), Alteratives (blood cleansing), Cholagogues (increases bile) and Diuretics (increases urine)specifically for the Liver.
