In the busy industrial and commercial era, the human brain is busy managing all kinds of business, while the liver is busy handling the nutritional mechanism and detoxifying all kinds of toxins. In Chinese medicine, the liver is the source of vitality. If problems such as lack of sleep and malnutrition surface, toxins will accumulate in the body, and with prolonged strain, there is a risk of cancer, and the trilogy of hepatitis, cirrhosis and liver cancer will play out. How to protect, nourish and protect the liver has become one of the most important issues in a high stress society.
The liver is located in the upper right abdomen of the human body and covers all the functions of digestion, metabolism, synthesis and detoxification. However, the liver is the most silent organ, because there is no nerve, people do not feel the pain, do not feel the health warnings of the liver, and often wait until complications appear, such as ascites, before patients will seek medical examination, in fact, it is too late, and often the results of the examination make patients and their families sad.
According to Western physiology, the liver is responsible for the production and excretion of bile, which helps in the decomposition and digestion of nutrients, as well as the detoxification of toxins in the body. Chinese medicine doctor Sheng-Pu Lee said, Chinese medicine believes that the liver is responsible for the drainage of Qi and blood throughout the body, to help the operation of the whole body. Once the rest is not normal, unbalanced diet, endocrine disorders, the liver’s workload will increase, such as poor sleep, angry, sore eyes, dizziness, dry nails and skin, and even suffer from scleroderma, these are all because of the liver problems.
The liver is the most important organ for physiological metabolism. Chinese medicine doctor Sheng-Pu Lee said, some women once the period, it is easy to mood, fatigue, chest swelling, is the so-called “menstrual syndrome”, mostly due to liver, metabolic problems; In addition, excessive use of eyes, frequent sex, will increase the burden on the liver. Therefore, the right amount of sleep, the right amount of exercise, is the only way to maintain good health.
Many people believe that to supplement the liver, we must “complement the shape”, so eat pig liver has become a good ingredient for liver; on this, Dr. Sheng-Pu Lee pointed out that as long as the anemia, blood deficiency can eat, but it depends on the body, too dry, hot people should eat in moderation. However, Dr. Lee stressed that a diversified diet, protein, fiber, starch, etc. should be balanced intake, in order to supply the whole body nutritional needs.
