Our Liver just like our Kidneys plays a major role in our general health. If your liver is malfunctioning, then you are likely to develop serious health conditions which can lead to your death.
Here are five tips to keep your organs in check and keep you healthy and happy.
- Limit Your Intake Of Alcohol
I know you like to indulge on the weekend but before you gulp down that bottle of beer with kebab, think about the effects it will have on your liver. Instead of taking alcohol, opt for a cocktail, a homemade fruit juice. You can even add a pint of alcohol to your juice.
- Eat your rainbows
Your liver will thank you if you incorporate these things into your diet. Make sure you add some vegetables to your favourite foods. Fruits and vegetables are not too expensive in Ghana so it shouldn’t be difficult getting some.
- Keep Your Weight Under Control And Exercise A Lot
You’ll have to keep your weight under control if you want to live longer. This will help prevent nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a condition that leads to cirrhosis.
- Watch out for certain medicines
Some cholesterol drugs can occasionally have a side effect that causes liver problems. The painkiller acetaminophen (Tylenol) can hurt your liver if you take too much. You may be taking more acetaminophen than you realize. It’s found in hundreds of drugs like cold medicines and prescription pain medicines.
Some medicines can hurt your liver if you drink alcohol when you take them. And some are harmful when combined with other drugs. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about the safest way to take your medicines.
- Don’t touch or breathe in toxins. Some cleaning products, aerosol products, and insecticides have chemicals that can damage your liver. Avoid direct contact with them if possible. Additives in cigarettes can also damage your liver, so don’t smoke.
Be careful with herbs and dietary supplements. Some can harm your liver. A few that have caused problems are cascara, chaparral, comfrey, kava, and ephedra.
- Stop Taking Herbal Concontions To Increase The Size Of Your Manhood Or Lose Weight
- In recent years, some herbs and supplements have hit the market that say they restore the liver, including milk thistle seed, borotutu bark, and chanca piedra. Be wary of those claims. “There’s never been any high-quality evidence that any of these promotes liver health,” Chung says. Some may even cause harm.
