The black liver and the juice it produces play an important role in the overall digestive process. Foods have properties to increase both the secretion of gastric and intestinal juice, as well as the extraction of liver juice towards the intestine, which plays an important role in the mixing of fats in the intestine. Diseases of the black liver and its pathways cause special functional changes in the digestive system.
Suffice it to mention that in prolonged inflammation of the gall bladder (chronic cholecystitis) digestive disorders and constipation are often observed, which continue with abdominal distension (diarrhea), with changes in the secretion of gastric juice, pancreatic juice, etc., which they also cause general changes, such as, for example, restlessness, insomnia, etc. In this case, the appropriate diet, which promotes the emptying of the gallbladder and regulates the function of the intestine, is an important measure for the prevention and treatment of liver diseases. This diet should also be supplemented with physical conditioning, which affects the normalization of the functions of the black liver.
Physical conditioning affects the improvement of blood circulation in the liver, oxygenation, as well as its supply with substances necessary for the synthesis and accumulation of the sugar reserve (glycogen). The diet, in liver diseases, should be such as to facilitate both the extraction of fluid (secretion) and the effusion of bile, which is achieved by taking frequent small portions of food (4-6 times a day), which serves as physiological stimulant of the mechanisms that set in motion the outflow of bile. Movements, long walks in the fresh air, gymnastics, etc. also help for this.
Other diseases it causes
Taking into account the main services of the liver, specialists have also determined its diseases (pathology) and those of the bile ducts, which are characterized by the decrease in the secretion and elimination of bile juice in the intestines, by the passage of its salts into the blood, which causes jaundice. But other changes can also arise in the liver tissue itself, which disturb its physiological functions of synthesis, transformations and removal of various food products of animal, vegetable and mineral origin. It is advisable for all liver disorders to consult a doctor for the most reasonable diagnosis and treatment. Preparations of plant origin practiced by popular and scientific medicine for liver diseases are used in these main directions. For the treatment of inflammation of the liver (hepatitis) and gall bladder (cholecystitis) and for the digestion of gallstones (cholelithiasis). Among the plants that were used in the family for the treatment of diseases of the liver and bile ducts, the mild mint gave good results, which can be used for a long time and without causing undesirable side effects.
Folk cures for the liver
Among the herbs that promote the emptying of the gall bladder, acai is recommended. Acacia flowers contain flavonic haterosides, carotene, vitamin C, the coumarin derivative herniarin, the quinonic pigment helicrisin, phytoncides, bitter and tannic substances, a little essence, etc., and have bacteriostatic properties, stimulate the production of bile, urination, spasmolytic properties, etc. They are recommended to increase bile flow and dissolve gallstones. Herbal medicinal herb mixed with wormwood and pezmin herb also becomes more useful for bile production.
Thanks to cynarin, glucosides A and B, various flavonic substances, etc. Artichoke leaves are mainly used in liver and kidney diseases. The leaves stimulate the production of bile and its emptying and are used against inflammation of the bile ducts, act on cholesterol and urea metabolism and promote urination (excretion of chlorides and urea).
Thanks to the substance
bitter and essence, wormwood is used as a means to increase gastric juice flow (improving appetite) and improve liver function. Wormwood essence contains azulene with antiseptic properties, similar to the camazulane of the chamomile flower. It should be borne in mind that, thanks to other components of the essence, such as thujol, wormwood, in large doses, is poisonous and can damage the brain and cause tremors. Also, it should not be used by pregnant women.
Fresh turnip roots contain sulfur essence rafamol etc. In addition to vitamin C, they also contain B factor and phytochemical substances. They stimulate the formation of bile and urination. At the same time, with the drying of the root, its action also decreases. Turnip roots are used as a choleretic tool against gallstones when the relevant bladder starts to re-inflame, as well as to facilitate the digestion of food. The active substances (materials) of the turnip, after being absorbed by the digestive tract, easily irritate the liver and in this way, increase the flow of bile. These substances, in small doses, stimulate the production of bile in the liver and, as a result, increase inflammation, therefore they are not applied in high doses, when the liver is damaged. In gallstones, turnip is advised only for a certain time and in small doses.
The liver is part of the function of many vital organs that are essential for health. Therefore, it is important to treat the liver well and make efforts to preserve it. Since it plays a big role in the digestion process, taking care of the way and choosing the food requires great foresight.
