There is such a myth: once the titan Prometheus stole the fire for people from the gods of Olympus. They decided to punish the insolent man by chaining him to a rock, where eagles pecked his liver every day. They chose such a painful punishment for a reason: the ancients believed that the soul was hidden in the liver. Since then, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge, but the importance of this organ has not been diminished. Moreover, scientists and doctors have studied the properties of the liver inside and out, making sure that the general health of a person also depends on its condition.
This condition is directly influenced by the lifestyle. With age, the liver undergoes serious tests that negatively affect its functionality. Cleaning can improve the situation. There are enough methods for cleansing the liver, however, one of the most popular and effective is the method using olive oil.
What’s the secret
Olive oil has always been highly regarded for its choleretic properties. A small amount of the product was enough to force the gallbladder to contract, and the ducts to open as much as possible. In addition, it was found oleic acid – a substance that improves metabolic processes. Subsequently, thanks to her, the body is cleared of bad cholesterol, and the elasticity of the vascular walls increases significantly.
Due to the fact that all the compounds that make up the vegetable oil are easily absorbed by the body, it is recommended to regularly include olive oil in your diet. Replacing the product with sunflower is not recommended, since it contains half the amount of oleic acid. A similar composition to that of olive oil is also observed in almond oil.
Before cleansing the liver in any of the ways, you must be examined by a doctor and get his advice. It will also help to exclude the presence of contraindications. It is possible to start procedures with olive oil only when the person is in good health and in excellent spirits.
It is strictly forbidden to clean the liver in the presence of:
- cardiovascular diseases, including hypo- and hypertension;
- diseases of the gastrointestinal tract;
- pathologies of the gallbladder;
- menstruation, pregnancy and lactation.
The preparatory stage for cleaning includes warming up the body, taking sedative and antispasmodic drugs, and proper nutrition. Another important point is the correct timing.
It is best to cleanse the liver on a full moon. Moreover, in matters of choosing the season, it is better to give preference to spring, especially March, when, according to biorhythmology, the organ has the greatest strength. Accordingly, it is not recommended to do cleansing in the fall, since during this period the organ is the most weakened.
