1. Hormone imbalance
    Our liver plays a major role in hormone balancing. When the liver is backed up with toxins, it’s near impossible for the other processes to be done well. Some symptoms you may be experiencing are lack of energy, lack of sexual drive, low testosterone, difficulty losing weight, trouble sleeping and even infertility.
  2. Skin irritations
    Our liver is the most important detox organ, but the skin is the largest one. Our skin is full of pores all over our body. When the liver is backed up, the skin is used to excrete toxins. This can create a lot of skin irritation, especially if you already have a comprised skin disorder, like psoriasis or eczema. However, even if you don’t have those issues, unknown skin rashes or irritations are usually the response of a backed-up liver.
  3. Gallstones
    Cholesterol plays an important role in our body. The liver helps to convert it to vitamin D, which is used for nervous system function and many other processes in the body. The liver produces bile to dissolve any extra cholesterol that is not needed. The liver sends this bile to the gallbladder to be used for digestion. If the liver is overloaded with too many toxins often the cholesterol doesn’t get broken down properly and stones are created both in the gallbladder and the liver. If you have gallstones, it is guaranteed your liver is compromised
    Did you know that in 2022 we were able to help 5 out of 5 individuals avoid gallbladder removal surgery by doing our Nutritional healing program? If the right remedies are used, the body is able to purge stones naturally.

Every one of our clients over the last 10 years has had success!

    Our liver is one of the most complex organs in the body, filtering toxins from the blood, aiding digestion, helping to regulate and produce cholesterol, regulating blood sugar, and balancing hormones… and this is just the beginning. When alcohol is metabolized by the liver, it actually poisons the liver. Each time your liver filters alcohol, liver cells actually die. They are poisoned to death. Yes, cells can be reborn, but it’s quite the process. Studies have shown that even an ounce of alcohol a week sets the liver back in its detoxification process.
  2. DRUGS (of all kinds) AND SUPPLEMENTS TOO!
    Now you may be thinking, I don’t do drugs, but I have to tell you that in my opinion, our pharmaceutical companies are the biggest drug dealers of our time. Yes, street drugs are absolutely detrimental to the liver, but even our medication and believe it or not, supplements are hard on the liver. All of our meds and supplements are processed and come with a lot of waste by-products that the liver has to work so hard at filtering out. That means less time to do its other jobs of keeping your blood clean, helping with digestion and regulating your hormones. If you are on medication for issues you were not born with, it may be possible that with a change of lifestyle, we can help you reduce your medication intake. Also, beware of over-supplementing. Nothing is as natural as eating pure herbs, but once it’s in a capsule, it’s processed and too many supplements create a toxic effect for the liver. Talk to our nutritionist to learn more.
    Well, this one will be short when you understand that vinegar is just fermented wine. Yes, all kinds of vinegar, including Apple Cider is just alcohol in disguise. So just go back and read #1 and replace the word “alcohol” with vinegar and you will quickly see the detriment it causes.


    Yup, those annoying weeds that grow all over your lawn every spring…your liver loves them. However, I wouldn’t go foraging through your lawn to make a salad because those are most likely contaminated. However, grown properly, dandelion leaves (not the flower) have a powerful way to help the liver with its detox function. Juiced, they are very bitter, but also extremely healing. You can also get dandelion in the form of capsules or herbal tea, which would be best consumed on an empty stomach.
  2. BEETS
    The truth is, that almost all vegetables are really good for the liver. However, beets do stand out. Beets naturally activate liver enzymes and also help to increase bile levels. In turn, that helps the liver with its detox functions. It’s also no secret that beetroot juice resembles the colour of blood. Its makeup is very similar, lending us its properties to keep our blood strengthened. Since the liver’s primary function is to keep our blood filtered, strong healthy blood gives the liver a helping hand with its detox process. Cooked beets are great, but organic juices mixed with beets have a potent, positive effect on the liver.
  3. FIBRE
    When we think of fibre, we think of bowels, but here’s the thing: When the liver has gone through its 2 phases of taking our toxins and reducing them to particles that can safely leave the bloodstream (thanks to your beets and greens), but it still needs a helping hand to get these toxins out. Healthy fibre, mostly found in salad veggies and fruits, are very sticky, When they pass through the colon, there is a portal (coming from the liver) that the toxins travel through towards the intestinal tract. If we have enough fibre in our diet, the fibre sticks to the toxins and they get expelled from our system. It’s an AMAZING process! However, if we don’t have enough fibre in our diet, guess where those toxins go? Yup, back into the bloodstream, feeding disease and wreaking havoc on healthy blood cells. The fibre found in cereals and bread does not do this job very well. You need your fruits and veggies!

It’s definitely getting c-c-cold outside.  It can be hard to adjust to the colder temperatures, but winter isn’t going anywhere for a few months, so let us help you get adjusted:

1.  WEAR LAYERS:  Wear your clothes in layers.  A tank top or t-shirt under your regular shirt, a thin long sleeve under your sweater.   These layers trap in the heat between the garments helping you to stay warm.

2. GET OUTSIDE!:  Yes, you heard me right.  Stop hiding indoors, get yourself a hat, gloves, scarf, good boots, and a warm jacket, and head outside.  It has been said before that “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”.  Once you get moving, the cool weather is refreshing, and really, the snow on the ground is so beautiful.  Fresh air clears the mind, purifies the blood, improves digestion, and keeps your respiratory system clean among many other health benefits.

3. WEAR YOUR BOOTS & HAT: Even if there’s no snow.  Boots keep the feet warm, and when the cold hits between the “shoe and the pants” everything feels cold. Boots keep the feet, ankles, and part of the leg warm. Cold extremities can mean a cold body.  Did you know that 10% of our body heat can be lost through our head, so keep your noggin covered!. When the top and bottom are toasty, the rest of the system tends to be also.

4. WARM UP YOUR WATER:  Water is so important to keep the blood flowing, impurities out, and bowels moving, so no matter the season you want to stay hydrated.  Instead of cold or room temperature water, try drinking warm water between your meals.  Really hot things can be ‘scarring’ to the esophagus, so you don’t want hot boiling water, but warm water is so wonderful.  When the tummy is warm, the blood system is happy and your temperature stays regulated.  



When we have too many things to get done, one of the first things we tend to compromise on is usually sleep. Most of us think we can function on less than 7 hrs of sleep, but we may be doing more harm than we realize and here’s why

MIDNIGHT MADNESS: As the body nears midnight, our system begins to release cortisol, a stress chemical that can cause a lot of inflammation, creates digestion issues, higher cholesterol levels, and many other health issues. Each hour past midnight, cortisol levels continue to rise rapidly.

HORMONES & IMMUNE SYSTEM: From about 9pm – 1am our hormones are balanced, our immune system gets strengthened, and as the night progresses our waste system goes into play. If we are awake during these hours, our immune system will almost always be compromised, we could suffer with hormone imbalances and have trouble with digestion.

SCIENTIFIC STUDY: The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) did a study that confirmed the link between lack of sleep and high cholesterol levels as mentioned above. The study also showed that sleep deficiency contributes to high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and depression. In my experience of working with people for more than a decade, I would say that this is 100% true.

Getting to bed early and getting a solid 7-9 hrs of uninterrupted sleep is probably one of the most important health decisions you could make each day.
