Pain on the right side of your body??
In the past two years with the increasing demand on our bodies detoxification systems, one organ in particular keeps taking continued hits: the liver.The Liver is our filtration organ. It’s constantly detoxing what we consume, breathe and lather on. Just like a regular filtration system, when the filter is full, it’s not very efficient. Respectively, the liver begins to sound its alarm to us that it needs a replacement, or in a more effective term HELP.Let’s first dig into the jobs of the liver:– It processes nutrients
– produces bile which helps us digest fat
– produces cholesterol and proteins
– controls 500 metabolic processes
– breakdown alcohol and medications
– detoxes the blood
– destroys old red blood cells
– produces hormones
– releases glucose into the blood
– regulates and stores glycogen
– stores ironThe liver is hit pretty hard when its detoxification phases get overburdened and overwhelmed. This overburdening also means that those functions I just mentioned above become difficult as the liver struggles to keep afloat because of the high load of toxins.How are toxins being administered?
I think it’s an easier question to answer what isn’t being polluted.
Our air is increasingly getting more and more polluted, with aluminum released into the air, and radiation from electromagnetic frequencies (5G and more) creating radiation bubbles. Mold is also becoming an increasing problem with homes improperly built.
Our water is laden with chemicals, drugs, antibiotics, fluoride, chlorine, arsenic and most recent findings possible snake venom particulates.
Our food is sprayed to the max with chemicals or genetically modified as we like to call it frankenfood.
Our meat is sourced with corn and soy byproducts that are filled with mycotoxins
Many are injected with unknown particulates from recent vaccinations targeting liver tissue.
Beauty products, lotions and potions are filled with fragrances
cleaning supplies are laden with chemicals.
toxic emotions of fear, resentment, frustration and anger are plaguing our population
I could go on…
The point is.. our liver is SCREAMING for help. And when we don’t pay attention to the warning signs of the liver, our body will relay it in other ways called referral patterns.
This brings us to the point of how the liver could be connected to the right side of the body…. There are certain pathways in our body called meridian pathways. They correlate with every organ that we have in our body. When an organ is not functioning adequately we can look to these meridians for answers as to which organ is having difficulty.
The meridian of the liver is on the right side of the body, going into the right side of the head, jaw, shoulder and shoulder blade, into the right hip, knee and into the foot.
This means that any of those body location areas I mentioned, could be a result of the liver screaming through that channel…. It’s not always a mechanical problem with a muscle or joint when an area is in pain/tension. In fact, most chronic pain issues are organ related.
I’ve seen such a huge ramping up of the liver struggling in individuals the past two years that it’s almost not normal to find someone without a problem. Hormonal and digestive problems are another huge result of a bogged down liver, and those is through the roof!
So, where does that leave us?
Well, in addition to toxins that we need to take account for in our life, and begin to decrease, there’s also a couple other key points to mention with the liver.
#1 there could also be an underlying infection going on in the liver making it struggle. Some big ones that I find are liver flukes (parasites), mold or mycotoxins and lyme and co-infections. The liver will always struggle when there’s unwanted guests
#2 genetic hangups. Now genetics aren’t everything, we have the power to change their expression, but it is important information to know where your weaknesses might lie. For instance, there are certain genetic variations that make it difficult for a person in general to detoxify properly. Which means if they are also bombarded with more toxins they will REALLY struggle. It’s important to know these facts before going into a detox protocol and to clear things out. It could be really dangerous for a person if they don’t know these facts beforehand.
What to do?
Start working on what you are putting in on and around your body…. This is a big key. We can’t escape all toxins, but we can control what’s in our vicinity as best as we can.
Stick to grass fed/finished foods and organic products to decrease toxins
get all natural beauty/cleaning products, check out EWG.org
get EMF remediation in your home/work from EMF pro.
Keep hydrated, and filter your water!! brita filters are total CRAP. I prefer kangan water for ultimate hydration
start getting off medications and saying no to annual and follow up vaccinations. Injecting through the blood is the most toxic form.
Clean your air through an Air Doc, and if you’re in a moldy home, remediate properly or move!
Get your genetics tested, and do a followup with Dr Rachel to customize a plan for you based on what nutrients you need for your liver!
castor oil packs are helpful to detox the liver
infrared and red light therapy, I like biolight (check link below for discounts)
So. If you have chronic right sided pain in your jaw, head, shoulder, hip or knee, look into your liver function. Blood lab work will often miss if the liver is starting to wane, and sometimes only reveals when it’s so far gone. But some key markers are if your liver enzymes start to rise, your cholesterol starts to rise as well as LDL, and your blood cells aren’t balanced.

Wishing you a happy and healthy month!
