As mentioned already, the liver's primarily known function is in the filtering or detoxification of our blood. However, it also is responsible for synthesis and storage of nutrients, balancing hormone levels, heat production, and the synthesis and secretion of bile. It is constantly responding to various signals from the body dictating which roles it carries out. A great example of this is with glucose. The liver, influenced by the hormones insulin and glucagon, will either store glucose as glycogen (stored fuel) or break down glycogen into glucose when the body needs sugar to break down for energy. The liver can also play an important role in the discharging of strong emotions.
Treating the liver can result in widespread benefits for the body because of its functional and anatomical relationships. We most often will see improvements in energy levels, improved bowel movements, improved circulation, better digestion, and improved breathing mechanics. You can’t say this with every organ but almost everyone benefits from specific work on their liver.
