The lack of symptoms and the fact that the liver does not hurt are the main reasons why Bulgarians do not take the necessary care of this very important organ. According to a representative survey conducted in 2019 in Bulgaria, 58.3% rarely or never had an ultrasound scan, and 47.3% - a specialized blood test. The worrying fact is that 80% of Bulgarians who have not had their liver examined up to now admit that they are not inclined to do so in the future. 8 out of 10 Bulgarians admit that they eat unhealthy or periodically include unhealthy foods in their menu, and every second in our country does not do sports or does this too sporadically. In addition, it is still widely understood that liver problems are primarily associated with excessive alcohol use.

Why is liver care important?

Caring for the liver is essential to maintaining the optimal functioning of the body. The liver, according to Chinese medicine, is associated with the energy of spring and the element Wood, it plays a key role in the process of cleansing the body of toxins. Winter, when we often consume more fat and meat and less vegetables and fruit, can lead to an accumulation of toxins in the body, which can put a strain on the liver. Therefore, regular care of it is important to maintain the balance of toxins in the body and prevent various health problems.

In addition, the liver is also important in controlling the secretion of bile juice, which is important for the processes of digestion and assimilation of food. The liver is related to vision and affects the mental and emotional activity of a person. Imbalances in the functioning of the liver can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, and even problems with the respiratory system. Therefore, it is essential to pay attention to the care of this organ through appropriate food, diet, and supportive practices. After all, liver care not only improves physical health but also contributes to a person's mental and emotional well-being.

How does the liver work?

Understanding how the liver functions is essential to maintaining optimal human health and well-being. According to Chinese medicine, the liver is especially active at night, when it performs important functions to cleanse the body of toxins. Imbalances in its functioning can lead to various symptoms, including awakening during certain hours of the night, often between 1 and 3 a.m., according to the so-called Chinese organ clock.

Although the liver has no nerve tissue and cannot cause direct pain, its problems can manifest as fatigue and imbalance in the body. This can create a feeling of interrupted sleep and a decrease in energy even after a sufficiently long period of rest. Thus, fatigue can be considered as a kind of "voice" of the liver that "talks" to the human body and gives it signals of imbalance. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the signs and signals that the body gives us to maintain our health and well-being.

What does science say?

Current epidemiological data indicate that every fourth person in Europe (about 25% of the population or 52 million people) has fatty liver. Men are more at risk than women. Factors such as obesity characterized by excess fat around the waist and intra-abdominal fat accumulation, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and elevated levels of triglycerides and "bad" cholesterol (LDL), as well and sleep apnea, menopause, polycystic ovaries, and taking certain prescription drugs can lead to fatty liver.

Useful tips

Liver problems can be resolved through carefully considered changes in eating style and lifestyle. For example, incorporating a healthier diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and cellulosic foods can help support liver function and reduce toxins in the body. It can also include the use of appropriate nutritional supplements that support its functions and help detoxify the body. For example, supplements such as milk thistle oil, which contains the specific ingredient Silibinin, which strengthens and regenerates liver cells. Also, regular physical activity can improve circulation and metabolism, which can support liver health.

It is important to avoid excessive alcohol consumption and seek appropriate medical attention for chronic problems. Also, being mindful of stress and managing it can help maintain liver health.
