Liver detoxification through Panchakarma - Dr. Sakshi
Abstract: As a culture, we seem to be increasingly liver-conscious—ever more aware of the importance of a healthy liver. This attention is well deserved. Without question, the liver is one of our most vital organs. Endlessly filtering and detoxifying the blood, the liver plays a significant role in digestion and metabolism. It also synthesizes protein, produces critical enzymes and hormones, breaks down and recycles tired blood cells, and regulates glycogen storage. Ayurveda describes the liver as a fiery, hot organ. Qualitatively speaking, this fact alone signals a close relationship between the liver, agni (the fire principle), pitta dosha, and the energy of transformation.
