3 Liver Functions produces glycogen from glucose breaks down glycogen into glucose converts non carbohydrates to glucose oxidizes fatty acids synthesizes lipoproteins, phospholipids, and cholesterol converts carbohydrates and proteins into fats breakdowns Estrogen forms urea synthesizes plasma proteins converts some amino acids to other amino acids stores glycogen, vitamins A,D, B 12, iron, and blood phagocytosis of worn out RBCs and foreign substances removes toxins from blood produces and secretes AND MORE OVER 300 METABOLIC FUNCTIONS.WHEW!!

4 Liver and Gallbladder issues Gallstones calculi (stones) made of crystallized bile pigments and calcium salts Cholelithiasis condition of having gallstones Cholecystitis inflammation of the gallbladder; may accompany cholelithiasis Stones can obstruct bile canals, causing jaundice Hepatitis liver inflammation Characterized by liver enlargement, jaundice, anorexia, discomfort, graywhite feces, and dark urine Caused by a variety of factors toxins, bacteria, viruses, and parasites

5 Liver and Gallbladder issues Cirrhosis degeneration of liver tissue involving replacement of normal (but damaged) tissue with fibrous and fatty tissue Portal hypertension high blood pressure in the hepatic portal veins caused by obstruction of blood flow in a diseased liver; may cause varicosities of surrounding systemic veins

6

7 Toxic Gut Relationship Related to Wood Element Liver / Gallbladder Foods: sour and fresh (sprouts, sauerkraut, etc.) Herbs: milk thistle and turmeric Sick: anger, frustration, resentment and controlling Healthy: romantic and patient

8

9 How Do Toxins Cause Disease? Interrupt the activity of enzymes (heavy metals) Disrupt hormones and cause endocrine malfunction Activate/deactivate genes linked to the disease process Trigger an immune response to initiate allergic or autoimmune responses

10

11 Phase 1 & Phase 2 Detoxification After toxins have been released by the matrix, they travel to the liver to undergo a two-step enzymatic process for elimination Insufficient or unbalanced activity of liver enzymes can cause a clearing reaction Symptoms: Fatigue, flu-like symptoms, itchy, rash, brain fog, headaches, joint pain, gastrointestinal upset Two enzymatic processes that are always occurring simultaneously in the liver Actions include oxidation, reduction, hydrolysis, hydration, and dehalogenation

12 Phase 1 & Phase 2 Detoxification Phase 1: Activation Phase Enzymatically activates toxins to intermediate metabolites Activated toxins and their by-products may be more toxic than starting material By-products including superoxide, free radicals, mutagens, carcinogens Phase 2: Conjugation/Elimination Phase Joins (conjugates) intermediate toxin to substrate for elimination Conjugation factors glutathione, taurine, n-acetyl cysteine, sulfur, coenzyme A

13 Clearing Reaction say what?? Phase 1 enzymes activate toxins faster than phase 2 enzymes can conjugate Overwhelming of phase 2 enzymes leads to abundance of circulating toxic intermediates, free radicals, and pro-inflammatory compounds If not eliminated, these activated toxins re-enter the matrix, initiating an immune response and starting the process over again

14 Avoiding a Clearing Reaction Avoid habits or foods that induce phase 1 enzymes Increase intake of antioxidants to quench free radical by-products Increase intake of fiber and water to encourage regular elimination Increase intake of foods/nutraceuticals that support phase 2 conjugation N-acetylcysteine, methionine, MSM, silymarin, cruciferous vegetables (DIM), calcium D-glucarate, glycine, glutathione Sulfur RICH foods - eggs, garlic and onions

15 the ph factor Urine - represents BODY- colon = 6.4 Saliva - represents strength of BILE and digestive enzymes creation = 6.4

16 Ancillary Support Liver / Gallbladder flush Coffee Enema Castor oil packs

17 Supplemental Support Schizandra - protects the liver/ scaring support Mushroom Extracts - enhance liver vitality Alpha Lipoic Acid - ALA- counteracts toxins Milk Thistle/ Dandelion Root or Leaf/ Burdock Root

18 Lecithin- emulsifies fats Pectin- thins bile Digestive Enzymes - Lipase and more

19 Bile Stimulating Tea Equal parts of : Ginger, Orange Peel, Dandelion Root, Fennel, Mint, and Coriander Seed Make as a tea and add sweetener if desired Drink Up

20 Liver Rebuilding Tonic Mix 4 oz Hawthorn Berries, 2 oz Red Sage, 1 oz cardamom. Steep 24 hours in 2 quarts of water. Strain and add honey. Take for 1 month - 1 to 2 cups per day
