In this race of life we tend to adapt such behaviours which can be potentially harmful for our body. For instance the first thing I know I do is to wake up and check my friends’ Instagram posts and think about it. The second easy choice that I make is to avoid social gathering and instead have my friends and relatives to my place over a cup of coffee. And all these communications take just a text message. The amazingly fast way of life often makes me think that am I making lousy choices just to be a little more comfortable in life?

One of the primary functions of liver is to digest, absorb and process food. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so it secrets bile, which helps to break down fats preparing them for further digestion and absorption. The spleen checks every red blood cell. It checks its viability and any red blood cell it doesn’t like, the spleen sends it to the liver and the liver breakdown the protein or blood cells to converts it into bile so we can digest fat. If the spleen doesn’t work correctly because of incorrect diet or toxic blood, it gets clogged up and the liver becomes inactive leaving behind old red blood cell in the body. This reduces the ability of liver to burn fat and process food. When the liver is overworked it impacts the immune system in a negative way and thus it cannot fight the poisonous substances in the body making us prone to picking up diseases and infections.
