Liver. Symptoms of a weak or toxic liver.

Liver. Symptoms of a weak or toxic liver.

If you have more than 2 of the following symptoms your liver is not up to par. The more you have the more involved strain your liver is putting on your health.


  • The liver filters out mutated hormones. If it is unable to its job you may develop:
    • Heavy or clotty menses (period or menstruation)
    • Missed menses (period or menstruation)
    • Tenderness of the breast
    • Fibroids in breast or uterus
    • Cancer of breast or uterus
    • Endometriosis
    • Hot flashes
    • Cysts on Ovaries
    • Mood swings or any menopausal problems
    • PMS
    • Cramping or painful periods
  • For the average person 80% of the cholesterol in their system is produced by the liver. If the liver is not producing the exact amount needed you might have High cholesterol or imbalanced cholesterol. Low hdl or Low cholesterol indicates a weak liver or possible liver disease.
  • Triglycerides are a byproduct of poor digestion, due to the liver therefore, blood clots are also usually caused by a liver which is sluggish. Remember a clot to the heart causes a heart attack and one to the brain causes a stroke. So heart attacks and strokes are often liver based.

Severe liver weakness allows the body to deposit fat under the skin causing fatty tumors or lipomaLipoma

  • Sensitivity to chemicals and food allergies can be linked directly to the liver


  • Liver is involved in digestion. If your liver is not digesting you might experience
    • Bloating or gassiness or gas pains
    • Flatulence more than once a week.
  • The liver helps regulate blood sugar levels along with the pancreas and adrenals.
    • Symptoms that the liver is not balancing blood sugar levels are: Getting either shaky, weak, grouchy or aggressive if you skip a meal
    • Hypoglycemia
    • Abnormal appetite
    • Feeling like taking a nap after you have eaten a large meal.
    • If you wake up during the night to urinate or look at the clock or any reason, the liver is probably releasing a little bit of sugar when it detoxifies.
  • The liver also regulates how the body gets rid of toxins. The favorite eliminating system is through the skin. Often people will develop rashes, psoriasis, eczema, boils or acne if the liver is putting the toxins out through the skin.

    Moles, age spots, allergy shinners and skin tag are a symptom the liver is sluggish.

  • It is also the liver's job to release what stimulates the bowels to empty. If you have less than 1 bowel movement for every meal that you eat, the liver might be sluggish.
  • The muscles in the neck shoulder area often become tight.

  • The liver stores B-12, Copper and Iron so therefore can effect red blood cells.
  • The liver produces Vitamin A out of bet-carotene (as in carrots) and Vitamin E out of wheat or soy and pro-D Vitamin, which when you are in the sun turns into vitamin D and a tan. A deficiency in any of these Vitamins could indicate a weak liver
    • Some symptoms of a Vitamin A deficiency are tubal pregnancies, wounds healing with a thick scaring or adhesions.
    • Most common Vitamin E deficiency are tightness in the calves of the legs when you stand, climb steps or a ladder and hot flashes.
    • Most common Vitamin D deficiency are poor calcium absorption, constipation or rough skin.


I suggest avoiding all unnecessary chemicals and for some it is advantageous to do a liver flush. I suggest nutritionally supporting the liver. My favorite herbal combination for liver is LIV-A (Liver Cleanse) in aggressive amounts.

Other herbal combinations are LIV-C or Milk Thistle combination.

If the weakness seems profound I suggest doing a Castor Oil Pack.
