Liver

 

The liver has hundreds of different functions and is connected with every part of the body. Every moment of the day it is involved in manufacturing, processing and supplying vast amounts of nutrients. These nutrients feed the 60-100 trillion inhabitants (cells) of the body. Each cell is, in itself, a microscopic city of immense complexity, with billions of chemical reactions per second. To sustain the incredibly diverse activities of all the cells of the body without disruption, the liver must supply them with a constant stream of nutrients and hormones. With its intricate labyrinth of veins, ducts and specialized cells, the liver needs to be free of any obstruction in order to maintain a problem-free production line and frictionless nutrient and hormone distribution system throughout the body.

 

The liver is the main organ responsible for processing, converting, distributing and maintaining the body's 'fuel' supply. Some actions involve the breakdown of complex chemicals; other important functions involve synthesis, particularly the manufacture of protein molecules. The liver acts as a cleansing station, inactivating hormones and alcohol and drugs.

 

 

Gallstones in the liver may lead to poor circulation, enlargement of the heart and spleen, varicose veins, congested lymph vessels and hormone imbalance. When gallstones have grown large enough to seriously distort the structural framework of the lobules (units) of the liver, blood flow through the liver becomes increasingly difficult. This not only raises the venous blood pressure in the liver, but also in all of the organs and areas of the body that drain used blood through their respective veins into the portal vein of the liver. Restricted blood flow in the portal vein of the liver causes congestion, particularly in the spleen, stomach, distal end of the esophagus, pancreas, gallbladder, small and large intestines. This can lead to enlargement of these organs, reduce their ability to remove cellular waste products and clog their respective veins.
