Liver Health Part Two

Supplements for you Liver

Keeping the liver healthy is a priority for all levels of well being.
In Chinese medicine the liver is associated with the emotions of anger, rage and frustration. These are insidious emotions which harm the body because they contribute to an acidic ph and prevent us from feeling the good in life. Left unchecked these emotions can lead to deep dissatisfaction and undermine our overall quality of life.

Health Force- Liver Rescue +4

There are a few herbs and supplements that you can use to support the liver, chief among them is Milk Thistle seed. This herb has been used for centuries to support the liver and it is the main component in Health Force’s Liver Rescue herbal blend. Other supportive herbs in the blend include artichoke and dandelion. Use this gentle blend for general maintenance or as part of a cleansing regime. This formula also has benficial ORAC capacity thus helping with overall health and liver support. 

“Our lives are
constantly stressed from food toxins, drugs (over the counter and
prescription) and environmental toxins. A less than optimally
functioning liver has profound health ramifications for the entire body.
Liver Rescue 4+ contains actually therapeutic levels of the most
powerful liver herb known. Supports both Phase 1 and phase 2 liver
detoxification. Provides powerful direct antioxidants (4,100 ORAC TEIg)
plus it increase the liver’s ability to naturally produce the even more
powerful metabolic antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (S.O.D.) and
glutathione peroxidase. Liver Rescue nutritionally supports liver
function, regeneration, liver detoxification, bile flow, and helps
protect the skin from (U.V.) radiation. I truly
wish you great health and happiness always”- Jameth Sheridan

Reishi to support the Liver

Reishi is another top notch herb for the liver. In Traditional Chinese medicine reishi is known as a shen tonic a substance that helps to calm and uplift the spirit. In China and other Asian countries it is revered as a premiere tonic herb where it has been used medicinally for hundreds of years.  Reishi is a mushroom that has been and is used to support the body in various ways. It has been used for respitory health, neurological health and liver health. 

Reishi has been and is used to support liver health and address various aliments that affect the liver. Among the conditions which practitioners have recommended reishi for are cirrhosis and hepatitis. Reishi contains a host of anti oxidant compounds which support the health and detoxification of the liver. A Chinese study involving mice demonstrated that reishi had the capacity to restore liver tissue damaged by harmful chemical back to a healthy state. While the research is limited it does align with the traditional use as a liver tonic and protector.

The reishi featured in Quantum Research’s Reishi Complex is wild sourced and of the highest caliber available on the market. This complex features many complimentary herbs and nutrients designed to support the function of reishi and liver health.

Castor Oil Cleansing is also a great way to support the liver. Please refer to the following post to learn more about Castor Oil Cleansing and visit our web store to purchase the highest quality Castor Oil and cotton flannel

Lemons are also very good for the liver and many people like to drink a glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon in the morning. This helps to reduce liver  stagnation, clear congestion and cleanse mucus build up from the system. While lemons are acid once they are ingested they alkalize the body and help to keep the body’s ph balanced. Also try using lemons instead of vinegar on your salads. The combination of organic greens, raw olive oil and lemon juice with a touch of salt; yum and good for the liver.

Closing Thoughts

Keeping the liver healthy and functioning optimally in paramount to good
health. The supplements recommended here are meant to be an adjunct to
an already healthy diet and lifestyle. Because without a strong
foundation we have little to build good health upon. Consider using
these supplements, eating well and a few of the tips from this post and
the previous one. Your liver will love it and so will you.  

Crystal Energy by Patrick Flanigan

Patrick Flannigan’s two signature products, Crystal Energy and Mega Hydrate are key supplements to staying fully hydrated all the time. Today we will discuss Crystal Energy but first lets review why hydration is so important.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HYDRATION

Would you believe that our flesh, bones and organs account for only about 30% of who we are? This body that we think we are that we identify with is mostly water. Take away the water and your left with a hollow shell. Kind of like those magic toys I played with as a kid, where you add water and voila. The lifeless flat little thing took shape and assumed a form. But, we are more dynamic than that, we are more like seeds, there is a huge potential but without the water nothing gets actualized.  So I invite you to consider who and what you are and the importance of water in you life, the quality of water and the ability to absorb and utilize it properly.

THE SOURCE OF LIFE

Water is the source of all life, 70% of you is water and 70% of this earth is water. This keen mirroring of who we are and the planet we live on is fascinating. If we look around we can see what water does and doesn’t do, how the quality of water affects living organisms. When we see drought stricken areas we see dry cracked ground, dusty and lifeless. The crust of the earth is akin to our skin, our skin needs to be hydrated to stay healthy, moisturizers and lotions can help it stay supple but if we are not adequately hydrated our skin dries out becomes flaky and begins to crack and peel. This is all an indication of the dry inner landscape asking for proper hydration.

JUST ADD WATER

And, add some CRYSTAL ENERGY to your water for enhanced hydration and well being. What is it about adding Crystal Energy to water that makes it so special? First off when you add Crystal Energy to your water you will feel the difference immediately. That is because the micro mineral clusters in this solution both structure the water and reduce the surface tension and this is something you will feel and sense when you first try it. The water feels softer, smoother, more velvety, this is the reduced surface tension at work. Water is a vehicle and a solvent and the solvency of water is greatly enhanced by the reduced surface tension. This is because the water is now able to be better absorbed by the body and go to work both cleansing the cells and delivering nutrients to the cells.

The microscopic clusters that are the structured aspect of CRYSTAL ENERGY  also help with the cleansing and nutrient delivery. They help the water in its solvent action as a chelater of toxins and particularly heavy metals. The clusters help to dislodge and encase the toxic substances and carry them safely from the body. This cleansing function combined with better hydration and assimilation of nutrients adds to the feelings enhanced well being that people using this product commonly report.

TIPS ON USING CRYSTAL ENERGY 

Incorporating this useful product into your life and getting maximum results from it are easy. Here are a few tips for you to get the most out of Crystal Energy.
  • Add Crystal Energy to your sports water bottle because when we exercise we breathe and sweat at an increased level and these are two ways we lose water. Exercising increases our body’s need for water as well as full and proper hydration, Crystal Energy excels at increasing full and proper hydration.
  • Add Crystal Energy to mist bottles that you may use at the beach or during any other activity. This will help to keep your skin soft and refreshed when exposed the elements.
  • Add Crystal Energy to distilled or Reverse Osmosis purified water, this will help to ‘revive’ the water and give it structure, particularly distilled water which lacks any structure. 

With summer just around the corner staying properly hydrated is going to be key to enjoying your time outdoors so pack some with you and bring it where ever you go. And Remember to STAY HYDRATED with CRYSTAL ENERGY and feel the energy of what a properly hydrated body feels like, it is a feeling you will no doubt energy.

Also frequent headaches and chronic grogginess are common signs of dehydration, so check your water intake and add some Crystal Energy to your water.

Castor Oil Cleansing

Castor oil has been used as a cleansing agent for years. Its virtues were touted by the late great health advocate Edgar Cacey. He was known to advocate castor oil packs to be used over the mid section to gently aid cleansing of the liver and gallbladder.

Use With a Cotton Flannel
The process he recommended was to soak a cotton flannel in castor oil and apply it to the mid section of the body along with a hot compress to aid oils absorption into the body. External castor oil packs are useful to assist and improve liver function and digestion. They are safe and easy to use when combined with an internal cleansing regime and Quantum Castor Oil is quite possibly the highest quality castor oil currently available. Cold pressed, unrefined and designed for optimal cellular resonance.    

To make a pack, saturate 3 layers of organic cotton flannel (6” x 8”squares) with castor oil. Place the pack directly on the skin, cover with plastic sheet, then a heating pad. Keep in place for 1 to 2 hrs, 2 to 3 times per week. Initial key site choices: abdominal area or low back (kidneys). It has been effectively used to promote proper bowel eliminations, good digestion, regular menstrual cycles, increased lymphatic circulation and better assimilation of nutrients.

How it works
The multiple layers of flannel saturated with Quantum quality Castor Oil are theorized to induce a high frequency resonant effect which allows the castor oil’s immune-boosting phytonutrients to deeply penetrate the cells, triggering a purging of stagnant toxins. This resonant effect can penetrate beyond the lymphatic system’s reach to even purge and purify the “no man’s land” between the GAG’s (glycosaminoglycans) and the lymphatic system where trapped toxins may otherwise remain for a lifetime. Quantum Castor Oil packs help create a profound shift toward ideal cellular resonance and thus, ideal health.

To aid the entire cleansing process you may want to include the Gallbladder cleansing formula as this will support the cleansing of the liver and gallbladder.

Heavy Metal and Radiation Cleansing

I am posting this to bring added awareness to what is already present. This post is meant to inform and educate not incite anxiety.

It is not uncommon to encounter heavy metals and radiation in our daily life. Our body is an amazing organism that is keen on maintaining balance under all circumstances, including in the presence of heavy metals and radiation.

Our bodies produce some of the most potent anti-oxidants in world. These compounds work to negate and support the cleansing of toxins, pollutants and free radicals.  And, the body could always use some extra support in its mission to keep our body and blood clean.  If you want to support your body in its mission of cleansing heavy metals and radiation consider supplementing you diet with the following  five food nutrients.

  1. Spirulina
  2. Chlorella
  3. Sea Veggies
  4. Cilantro
  5. Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs
Spirulina:
This is one of the most nutrient dense foods available. Spirulina is rich in  70% protein by weight, contains bio available B12 & iron, high in dark pigment anti-oxidants and toxin binding compounds that help eliminate radioactive compounds from the body.

Chlorella:
Similar to spirulina, chlorella is a single cell algae, that is rich in proteins and dark pigment anti oxidants.  Chlorella is known to rapidly aid in repairing tissue and DNA/RNA due to the presence of Chlorella Growth Factor, a unique component to chlorella. CGF is a combination of proteins, peptides and vitamins.  Among these compounds is a heavy metal binding protein molecule, which is useful for binding to and clearing mercury from the body.

Sea Vegetables:
Another valuable nutrient dense food from the waters, sea vegetables contain alginates. These compounds which are naturally found in sea vegetables act as an absorbent and are particularly effective in absorbing lead and cadmium.

Cilantro:
This common herb is extremely effective at cleaning heavy metals from the body.  It works especially well to clean mercury from the body.  The best and easiest way to get these benefits is to consume the herb in its fresh state.  A few tablespoons a day in conjunction with a detox program to ensure the loosened metals are flushed from the body.

Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs:
The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood. As such they will be one of the organs most effected by heavy metals and radiation.  This supplement acts to support the kidneys while you are cleansing or it can be used as a general tonic to support kidney function.
At Zebra Organics we strive to bring you a range of quality products from trusted sources.  We stock a range of products from the ones listed above.  Of particular interest is the Spirulina/Chlorella combination tablets are powerful, convenient and easy to use.  And, they are on sale for $22.95 for 1,000 tablets!
