The liver is surely among the most important organs in the human body. It filters the blood of toxins and prevents the accumulation of waste material. However, if waste and toxins overload it due to some factor, it won’t be able to work properly, resulting in accumulation of toxins in the fat cells in the body, especially in the belly area.
A sluggish liver can be a big problem that will negatively affect our overall health, so it should be resolved as soon as possible. Here are the main warning signs of a sluggish liver:
If you have suddenly started gaining weight for no apparent reason, your liver might be full of toxins. The liver metabolizes fat by default, but when its function if affected, the fat will come back to it and make you gain weight.
A fully functioning liver produces antibodies that fight allergens, but when its function is impaired, the allergens are stored in the body instead, causing the brain to produce more histamine which results in symptoms such as itchiness or headaches.
According to experts, chronic fatigue is often a sign of a sluggish liver. The overload of toxins can disrupt your muscles, causing body pain and a toxic buildup which can attack the immune system. If left untreated, the fatigue can develop into moodiness, anger and depression.
Excessive body odor and sweating
When the liver works too hard, it transfers heat to the body, which tries to cool down by excessive sweating. This may lead to unpleasant body odor which can’t be resolved by applying an antiperspirant.
The accumulation of toxins in the liver can disrupt the hormonal balance and cause acne that won’t go away with creams or skin treatments.
According to Dr. F. Lipman, bad breath is usually a sign of a sluggish liver and occurs due to the accumulation of toxins in the liver cells.
