Love your liver – change your habits

good food to help your liver
help your liver not just by reducing alcohol

It’s not just drinking too much alcohol which can effect our liver. Being obese or diabetic can damage your liver profoundly.

Introducing fresh fruit and vegetables and avoiding crash dieting helps avoid fatty liver disease.

Increase the amount of water you drink and the consumption of the following foods:

  1. Carrots: They contain Vitamin A which is good for preventing liver disease. The orange colour is beta-carotene which stimulates it’s function.
  2. Garlic: Contains selenium which helps detoxify and flush out toxins.
  3. Citrus: helps detoxify. Try drinking water with a squeeze of lemon or lime to drink through the day.
  4. Green Vegetables: Especially those containing sulphur compounds such as cauliflower and broccoli.
  5. Walnuts: They are high in arginine which assists the liver in detoxifying ammonia. 
  6. Apples: They contain high levels of pectin, which helps the body cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract. This means the organ has less of a job to do. – remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Having problems changing your lifestyle?

Throughout the year I see people who want to change a habit which is causing an issue. If you need to change your diet or reduce the amount you drink, but find it really difficult then working with me could help change your life around. It takes up to 66 days to change a habit one reason New Years Resolutions don’t tend to work, is that they go from 70mph to 0 in one go. It’s much easier to change a habit if you’re doing it with a partner, whether it’s a friend or a professional. Hypnotherapy can speed up the process because it directly addresses the subconscious part of the brain. where unhelpful habits to start in the first place

How G changed his drinking habit

To start changing a habit, it’s often easier to think up a positive alternative. The last client I saw for drinking too much wine, realised he opened the bottle whilst cooking dinner. He changed that to drinking only with his meal and cut down consumption by half in only one week. Further work using visualisation enabled him to seriously think through a typical scenario such as going out with family and rewrite it in a way acceptable to him.

“The problem in the past,” he told me, “was that I was being told to stop, but not given any understanding of how. Coming to see you for the initial consultation meant the Penny dropped and I could start finding solutions”.

Here’s the testimonial from him. 

From my first consultation with Penny. I realised that making contact with a view to addressing my situation was to be a good decision. From the outset, I felt comfortable with Penny and was pleased to report back each week how much difference our sessions had made. As a result, I recognised that I was the master of my own destiny. Penny’s role was to facilitate any changes I chose to make. I have no doubt that I have some way to go. Penny was instrumental in guiding me on this journey. I am extremely grateful to Penny and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to others.
