What do allergies have to do with your liver? As it turns out, quite a lot!*

By Camille Carlson Gehrlich, NHA, Natural Health Blogger, Author. Reviewed by Dr. Abdel Alkhalouf.

If allergies are simply an exaggerated immune response to a substance in our environments, such as pollen or dander, why do some people have allergic responses and others don’t? 

Quite simply, it’s often because our cleansing organs just can’t keep up with all they have to process. Think about it-the liver is our main detoxifying organ; it filters through many toxic components like medications, alcohol, pesticides, and even heavy metals, in a day.  

When the toxic burden on our liver is too significant to process efficiently, our immune system recognizes the molecules as dangerous and produces antibodies to fight them off. This is the allergy response. It can include annoying symptoms like itchy and watery eyes, a swollen throat, a runny nose, fatigue, hives, headaches, and even more severe conditions such as asthma and eczema. So, what is our first response? Make it stop! We take a quick fix pill that masks the symptoms and go on our merry way. The problem is-we may be adding to our liver’s toxic burden and progressively weakening our immune system.  

In holistic health care, the approach is a bit different. Instead of dulling the symptoms, practitioners go after the source of the problem. In this case, this would include a two-pronged plan.

  1. Support

For the liver to do its job efficiently, it needs to be healthy, so liver cells need to be protected with nourishment so they can regenerate and thrive.

2. Cleanse

A good liver cleanse can significantly help us with our exaggerated immune responses. It helps to clean out the “sludge” that can form in our liver and slow its filtering capabilities down. 

A liver cleanse can maximize vitality, decrease allergies, and reduce the body’s toxin burden while increasing energy levels and revitalizing our immune system.

Most of us use a water filter these days. Part of owning one is having to replace the filters regularly, or the whole contraption doesn’t do us any good. Our bodies are made much more elegantly than a water purifier and can handle processing a lot, but they also need help with all that they are called on to cleanse in the toxic environment we live in.

CLEAR is formulated to address this need. The ingredients in CLEAR are chosen to nourish and promote the cleansing of these vital purifying organs. Of course, when the liver functions at its best, the lymphatic and digestive systems are both happy. They are less taxed and can do their jobs more efficiently. There is also less chance of developing alarming health conditions due to the retention of damaging toxins.

Here are a few of the benefits of CLEAR’S carefully chosen ingredients which cleanse and support the liver:

Vitamin A: The body stores vitamin A in the liver, so when a person has sufficient levels, they maintain proper iron levels and are more capable of fending off anemia and severe infections and illnesses. As a bonus, vitamin A also plays a crucial role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

Magnesium, as citrate and malate: Magnesium encourages the bowels to eliminate, helping alleviate stress on the liver. Intestinal toxins accumulate and circulate to the liver if not eliminated.

Mullein leaf: Mullein leaf is purported to help with respiratory and heart health and other conditions. Its antibacterial benefits may also be effective against several species of disease-causing bacteria such as E. Coli, thus easing the burden on the liver. 

Milk Thistle seed: This potent seed is believed to reduce liver damage caused by free radicals produced in the liver when metabolizing toxins.

Dandelion leaf: Long used as a traditional remedy for the elimination system, dandelion leaf is a natural diuretic, increasing the amount of water moving through the cleansing organs, thereby filtering out the blood’s waste more efficiently.

Rosehip fruit: Rosehips are rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, especially vitamin C, so they naturally help lower irritation and oxidative stress in our organs.

Licorice root: Some of licorice’s 300 compounds display potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral effects.

Turkey Rhubarb root: This important root contains a rich source of immune system-boosting antioxidants, elimination encouraging fiber, and vitamin K. These benefits to the body provide strong support for our liver so it can work at its peak.

Parsley: Parsley is a highly accessible herb and is found to help with urinary volume, thus aiding the kidneys and liver with their function.

Bromelain: Many studies find that bromelain is excellent at aiding in the reduction of inflammatory substances in the body, helping the body to recover and function more capably.

Bentonite/Redmond clay: This famous clay can bind to toxins and help eliminate them from the body. It has a negative charge that allows it to bind to positively charged metals such as lead. Helping to rid the body of excess heavy metals facilitates its peak functionality.

Slippery Elm inner bark: This thick gel is found inside the bark and used by Native Americans to soothe wounds, fevers, ailments, and pain. Its antioxidants may help relieve inflammatory bowel conditions.

Elderberry fruit: Elderberry is an excellent source of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins which positively influence the immune system and help soothe irritation in the body.

These incredible ingredients all:

· have historical uses, applications, and pretty amazing benefits.

· can all be found in CLEAR!
