Manage episode 226211489 series 60566
If you do a lot of reading, you’ve probably seen tons of books and articles about topics like mental health, heart health, and gut health. But there’s one incredibly important, powerhouse organ that has been overlooked in this conversation—the liver.
In ancient cultures, the liver was thought to be at the root of human consciousness and self-awareness. But today, most folks hardly consider the health or function of their liver—and when they do, it’s typically after a night of drinking. The truth is, our livers play a huge role in hormone function, digestion, fat burning, and creating energy.
That’s why when I read Dr. Alan Christianson’s new book, The Metabolism Reset Diet, I felt like my wish had been granted! His smart, science-based approach to restoring liver function is exactly what has been missing from common knowledge. On today’s show, Dr. Christianson is sharing the basic mechanisms behind the liver, why it matters, and how you can hit the reset button on your metabolism.
