Care For Your Liver

Looking after your liver is another key aspect in hormonal health, especially during menopause. There are several ways the liver is linked to hormonal health. First, it helps to process and distribute hormones into your bloodstream where they perform their tasks of sending signals to your body and tissues.
Secondly, it assists in eliminating excess hormones from the bloodstream and ships them to be expelled from your body. Therefore, it’s quite involved in hormonal balance. However, if you overload your liver with too much detoxification tasks, it may not work at its best, which can worsen menopausal symptoms. Therefore, if you don’t want to overwork your liver quit coffee, cigarettes and alcohol (stimulants), as they trigger hot flashes. Take healthy alternatives like water or green tea instead.
  • Cut out sugar, junk food and avoid environmental chemicals
  • (e.g. chemical cleaning products, sprays, fumes etc),
  • since most packaged foods may contain chemicals that overburden your liver.
  • Then support your liver function by taking plenty of water (at least 8 glasses a day), and give it antioxidants to help in the cleansing process.
  • Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants.
  • In addition, many herbs support the liver, the major ones being milk thistle and globe artichoke.

Diet

Eat unprocessed natural foods, especially vegetables, whole grains, fruits, seeds, beans, nuts, and healthy fats. Avoid too much sugar and salt.
