This vital organ has two main functions – to metabolize fat and cleanse blood. Fatty and overworked liver leads to weight gain and other health problems.
When you are stressed, fatty cells release stored toxins and cause cellular damage, but the liver cannot process these amounts of toxins. Toxins are usually stored in cell membranes, muscle tissue, brain tissue, and even nervous tissue.
Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton explains that weight gain is directly linked to the natural weight control system. This system gets poisoned and loaded with chemicals that enter our body through the food we eat, the environment that surrounds us, and all the skin care and cleaning products.
In her book, The Detox Diet – Eliminate Chemical Calories and Enhance Your Natural Slimming System, Dr. Baillie-Hamilton explained the connection between toxic synthetic chemicals and the modern fat epidemic.
Toxins clog up liver and affect its role in burning fat. Detoxification is one of the healthiest all-natural ways to protect your body from toxic buildups. Once you eliminate the toxins, you will also eliminate the fatty deposits. Try this detox drink and enjoy its results.
