50 ways to love your liver: symptom checker

Because the liver is responsible for detoxifying the system, many symptoms people experience are a result of this process being compromised. If the liver can’t do its job, it starts asking other parts of the body to do it for it. For example, spots and acne will be a way in which the skin can release toxins to help the liver. Weight gain is a way of the body storing toxins in a safe way – when the liver is unable to fully detoxify them.

Other symptoms that can be related to the liver include:

  • Menstrual problems, including painful periods and PMS
  • Fertility problems
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Being unable to deal with stress
  • Angry outbursts, feelings of frustration
  • Digestive complaints
  • Sinus congestion
  • Food allergies

This list isn’t exhaustive but includes those I most commonly see in the Twelve Rivers clinics. I would include support to the liver in most treatment plans if these symptoms were presenting – in addition to constitutional support.

All the best
