The liver is the largest organ in the body responsible for detoxifying the blood. If it’s not doing it’s job properly or is getting overloaded, you can be assured that your health WILL suffer. There are many liver conditions in addition to the big ones like liver cancer, hepatitis and hepatosis (fatty liver disease). Pregnant women can get cholestasis due to increased estrogen, and gall bladder stones or blockages are directly related to liver functioning.
