Neurotransmitters, Insulin Resistance & Your Liver

* * * * *

Broccoli or Carrots?

Ah, the liver. What does the liver have to do with how we feel? A lot! The liver is what I like to call the “Transformation Station”. It converts, stores, and detoxifies all sorts of stuff. The liver has many roles; however its relevance to mentally wellness is that when it is not functioning optimally, it can contribute to hormone havoc, imbalance of  neurotransmitters, and insulin resistance. Any or all of those imbalances can lead us to feel panic, anxious, and even depressed.

The liver thrives off of nutrients that come from our food and supplementation sources. A few foods that support the liver are beets, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, onions, garlic, broccoli, cabbage, artichoke, bitter greens (collards, kale,dandelion), apples, and lemons. Eating these on a regular basis is a great way for us to love our liver.

I have over the years used cleansing programs that target the liver. The one I have had most success and felt physically & emotionally better from has been posted in the download section and it’s called LOVING THE LIVER. The benefits I have seen are a reduction in my elevated liver enzyme levels, improved digestion & mental clarity, and a clear & vibrant complexion.

In the past my perception was that I always thought the liver was mostly responsible for detoxification. Yes it does that, but the conversion of amino acids into feel good brain neurotransmitters happens in the liver. So for us folks who experience anxiety, panic, and depression should consider supporting the liver as part of our anxiety therapy!
