Liver cleansing is an important part of maintaining a healthy body.Â The liver is the eliminator of toxins from our body, as such it can get rather taxed after years of cleansing, or in many cases years of abuse.Â If I knew then what I know now I would have been nicer to my liver in my younger years.
Liver Cleanse Experiment:
Earlier this year I went for an acupuncture session at Isthmus Acupuncture.Â I went for stress releif and to see about relieving some of my reoccuring stomach issues.Â In order to diagnose my issues I was given a brief survey of my overall health.Â This was my first time experiencing acupunture, and what a treat!Â The stress locations on my neck were pressed gently upon as the acupunturist said, “does it help when I press, here, or here.”Â After several here or here questions and a review of my survey I learned that my liver was a source for my dis-ease.Â Â It wasÂ presumablyÂ my college years, prior to becoming a yogi,Â coming back to visit me.
Now being the yogi that I am I thought, hmm, I shall have to work on healing my liver.Â Time for a Liver Cleanse!
So here is the experiment, there is a lovely Kundalini Yoga kriya, Let the Liver Live.Â So in order to help with my healing I strated a 40 day Sadhana of Let the Liver Live.Â I have also supplemented this yoga practice with a Liver Cleansing Organic Herbal Supplement, made by yogis
Then I went back for another acupuncture session last week.
My diagnosis this time was that my liver was still giving me some problems, however, not as many issues as before.Â Not only that, it turns out my detox meridians, (I believe this is an appropriate term) were enflamed.Â This means my body was detoxing, which tells me that a regular practice of Let the Liver Live plus Liver Cleansing herbal supplements has a detoxifying effect on the body.Â Excellent.
I will continue the 40 day practice and go back for another acupuncture session by the end of the year.Â At that time we’ll see how my liver symptoms are doing.Â
I will keep you posted on progress.
At the end of the day it really goes to show what supplemental medicine can do for the human body.Â It’s unfortunate that acupuncture is rarely covered by health insurance.Â If it was covered I would go much more regularly.Â For that matter yoga class should be covered under insurance, at least in some capacity.Â Preventative Maintenance of the body is the way to fight health care costs now and in the future.
Here’s to your health!
