In my practice, I talk to my clients quite a lot about the liver. Pretty much all of our problems begin and end with the liver. It’s no surprise, as this organ performs over 300 metabolic processes to keep us alive each day! The word “liver” is derived from the Old English word for “life”, and it’s no wonder because the liver seems to be the key to life. It is even able to regenerate itself given the right nutrients and circumstances! But did you know it can take up to 2 years to fully rebuild your liver? By sticking to the right diet and detoxification protocols, you will provide your liver the best possible circumstances in which to regenerate and renew. And we all know the affects that stress, exogenous hormone use, poor diets, and nutrient depletion do for our livers (if you don’t, I’ll bring you up to speed in future posts!).
In the interest of simplifying my life right now , I am disabling all comments on the posts of this website. It’s mainly due to the high volume of spam comments that have now become so sophisticated as to pass right through the spam filter. It’s nothing personal, and I love hearing from you! So if you would like to add a comment, please take a moment to e-mail me at: carrie [at] organicthrifty [dot] com. That’s the best way to get my attention anyway, and you will always get a personal reply!
Thanks for reading!

If we take a look at what is for sale on the “baby food” aisle of the grocery store, we see that sugar, white flour, and cheap processed foods abound. This is conventional wisdom, but is this the best start for babies? Read the rest of this entry »
