World Liver Day: Balanced diet, fasting, long walks and detoxing body regularly can keep liver fit
World Liver Day got observed on the 19th April to spread awareness about liver related diseases and their prevention. The liver is the second largest and the most complex body organ of the body and diseases of which are on the rise because of the alcoholism; changes in the food habits; comfort seeking lifestyle and non-cleanliness.

Many hospitals and medical practitioners and media channels hold special events and shows to create awareness about liver - the vital organ that is responsible for fighting infections, digestion, and controlling metabolism. We need to understand that for humans liver is one of the most important organs for digesting food and flushing out harmful toxins. Keeping liver healthy is important for long productive life.

According to a WHO report, in India, liver diseases are the 10th most common reason of death and liver diseases are on the rise even among the children. It is being said that today's fast lifestyle, alcohol intake, commonly unclean and polluted environment are taking the toll of life.

We need to understand that it is essential for us to detox liver on a regular basis to keep it fit and fine. My father had often remarked that prevention was better than cure. According to him, a healthy lifestyle, balanced home-cooked 'satvik' diet and long walks were enough to keep liver fit.

Earlier, in our house, for one week in a month a mix of garlic and apple cider was used to detox the liver. Even fasting with apple, beet roots and wall nuts was undertaken once in a month to nourish the liver. But, unfortunately, fast food and beverages are affecting liver functioning adversely these days.
