Your liver is an integral part of our ongoing health and wellness. It represents our body’s innate ability to adapt and heal because it regenerates after damage, it filters blood, neutralizes excess hormones and helps support elimination of wastes.
3 Ways to Love Your Liver
Your Liver lives just below the ribcage on the right side of your body and is attached to the bottom side of your diaphragm. Deep, diaphragmatic breathing actually massages the liver and can help downgrade your nervous system so that your internal organs are working their best.
Try this yoga breathing exercise called “Anuloma Pranayama:”
Conscious relaxation techniques promote restful sleep; this is imperative for the liver cells to regenerate after damage. Learning to relax and get restful sleep also partner to help you maintain a healthy metabolism, which is another key job of your liver.
When you’re feeling jittery, try this Systematic Relaxation Technique called “Body Scan”
Compression and gentle twists stimulate circulation locally around the liver. Increased circulation helps the liver process excess hormones and filter metabolic byproducts to help remove toxins efficiently.
