Stress, the Liver, & Sleeplessness

Stress, the Liver, & Sleeplessness

Liver Toxicity

The liver is the main organ that controls sleep. During the night, when the body is the least active, the liver is the most active. This can produce sleeplessness. Here’s why. When the liver is unencumbered, it will do its work effortlessly but, if it is encumbered, it can become over-active in doing its work. This overactivity awakens you after you have fallen asleep, which is usually between 12 am to 3 am. It’s like trying to sleep in the midst of commotion. And the commotion is inside your body. You feel exhausted and you also feel wired. Having a clean liver usually prevents this type of sleeplessness from happening.

Red Juices for Heart, Lymphatic System, Adrenals and Kidneys

In support of American Heart Health Month, I’m sharing with you juices and foods that can help your heart along with many other organs and systems of the body.

The color red (and purple) is associated with the adrenal glands, the lymphatic system and the kidneys; they are also known to nourish the heart. When you think of red produce (tomatoes, berries, cherries, pomegranate, beets, purple cabbage and cranberries), the nutrient that stands out is lycopene, which is a carotenoid that is a powerful antioxidant associated with reduced cancer risk,  especially prostate cancer. It is also associated with reduced risk of heart attacks. Many red fruits and vegetables are also rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, folate, and flavonoids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Cranberries are a good source of tannins, which prevent bacteria from sticking to cells; hence they are important in fighting infections. They are the reason cranberry juice is a standard treatment for bladder infections.
