It is the weekend and tradition calls; you and your friends meet up for that much needed unwinding session, after a hectic week, and usually these unwinding sessions involve a free flow of alcohol!
If the above situation is something you can relate to, then it could mean that you indulge in drinking alcohol on a fairly regular basis.
Now, while consuming alcohol once in a while may not be too harmful for health, it still has temporary side effects, such as a hangover.
When a person consumes excess alcohol, certain reactions occur in the body, causing symptoms like, nausea, headaches, body pain, indigestion, dehydration, constipation, etc.
So, imagine what could happen to the health of a person who consumes alcohol on a regular basis!
As we know, alcohol dependency, or being addicted to alcohol is a serious mental condition, which also affects your body in adverse ways.
Alcoholism has been one of the major causes for liver damage and the development of liver cancer in people.
Once a person develops an addiction to alcohol, it can become extremely hard for them to get rid of this dependency.
More often than not, alcoholics usually succumb to liver diseases, as alcohol affects the liver, more than any other organ in the body.
It is important to understand that the liver is a vital organ and it takes care of the metabolic functions of the body and also filters the blood before it enters the digestive tract.
Liver damage or cirrhosis of the liver can occur when a lot of toxins get accumulated in the liver caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, obesity, injury, viral infection, cardiovascular diseases, etc.
So, if you want to keep your liver healthy and safe, especially after consuming alcohol, then here is a natural remedy which can cleanse your liver.
- Bitter Gourd Juice (Karela) - ½ a glass
- Lime Juice - 4 tablespoons
- Honey - 1 tablespoon
This home remedy to help keep your liver free of toxins, especially after drinking alcohol, has proven to work effectively, when used on a regular basis.
However, if one continues the consumption of alcohol while taking this remedy, it could be of little help.
For this remedy to work, one must take a break from consuming alcohol, at least for 3 months.
If you feel like you have a dependency on alcohol, even at the slightest levels, medical help must be sought.
One must also consume a lot of potassium and fibre-rich food, which can eliminate the toxins from the liver naturally.
Bitter gourd juice is rich in vitamins A, C and fibre content, which can replenish the cells of your liver and bring them back to normal after alcohol consumption, thus keeping the organ healthy.
The vitamin C content in lime juice and the antioxidants in honey also aim at rejuvenating the liver cells and flushing out the toxins from the liver.
