Please SLEEP early....

The liver is the largest single gland in the body. It is located on the right side of the abdomen under the diaphragm which divides the chest from the abdomen. Liver performs a number of important functions in the body. when the liver is healthy it works very smoothly.

Causes of Liver Damage
    Most of the foods we eat are stored in the liver, after having been digested and absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The liver has another very important function, that of detoxifying or destroying many harmful poisons and even certain medicines that are taken into the body for other purposes. When the liver is sick, these functions are impaired and soon the whole body suffers. Not only does the liver store the food materials, it also produces bile, a golden yellowish liquid that is needed for the absorption of fat from the intestine. Another important substance produced in the liver is cholesterol, part of which passes into the bile. It may even from stones in the bile ducts and gall bladder under certain conditions.

The main causes of liver damages are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning
3. Too much eating
4. Skipping breakfast
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil.
8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver.
9. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, DO NOT STORE.

Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to "liver functioning schedule"

Liver Functioning Schedule 

   Night at 9 - 11 PM : is the time for eliminating unnecessary toxic chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time one is still in an un-relaxed state such as socializing, drinking, eating out, this will have a negative impact on health.
  Night at 11 PM - 1 AM : is the de toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in deep sleep state.
   Early morning 1- 3 AM : de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.
   Early morning 3 - 5 AM : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough sufferers during this time. since the de toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.
  Morning 5-7 AM: de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.
  Morning 7-9 AM: absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast before 7.30 AM is very beneficial to those who wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9-10am rather than no meal at all.

Aside from that, midnight to 4am is the time when bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.
