Taking Medications? Cleanse Liver and Kidneys
We all know that our liver and kidneys are important right? But, do we know exactly what they do? Let's start with the liver. It cleans our blood, produces bile, and stores energy. Our kidneys remove waste products from our bodies, balance our fluids, and helps regulate blood pressure. And that's not even all they do! So, pretty important organs, wouldn't you say?
Unfortunately, we can be pretty rough on our livers and kidneys. What we put into our bodies greatly affects how they function. Some things we know aren't great for us, but we all have our "cheat" days right? This would include things like alcohol and sugar. But other things might not be as obvious - things we think should be making us feel better. For example, over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen. Those aren't meant to be taken every day and taking large amounts over a long period of time can be damaging to both the liver and kidneys!*
Tens of thousands of people die annually from liver or kidney failure due to taking over the counter medication. Let's do what we can to decrease these numbers.
In pain? See a chiropractor. Taking medications? Find a solution to the problem, then get on a regime to clear your liver and kidneys so they can perform properly. Some people experience low back pain that might actually be a kidney related issue. Have you felt burning in your lower back when you wake up in the morning? Likely kidneys!
Other areas... are you taking aspirin every day because you can't get rid of a headache? Do you grab your ibuprofen when your back is bothering you? Regular chiropractic adjustments can fix both of those issues, plus so much more! When you get adjusted, Dr. Davis is realigning your spine and releasing toxins that are built up and surrounding the joints. After an adjustment, those toxins are released, which is what your body needs! And the best part? You'll be taking those medications less, making your liver and kidneys very happy! Win-win.
If it's time for a liver and kidney detox, cut out the harmful items you're putting into your body. Alcohol, sugar, processed foods, and fried foods are just a few things that can easily be replaced with fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and plenty of water. Supplements can be taken to ensure you're getting the vitamins your body, specifically your liver and kidneys, need. Next to Nature, here in Sioux City, has an excellent selection of supplements and teas to help your body do what is designed to do without the use of medications.
We know we're biased, but chiropractic care really is amazing and can help more than just a sore back. When your spine is aligned, all of your body's systems can communicate properly with each other. And when they're doing that, your organs are going to do what they're supposed to do!
