Dr. Kahana, who has studied liver and digestive health for over 20 years, tells us that our liver is affected by our diets because all the food we eat passes through it first. If the liver is filled up with toxins from the modern food we eat, it will activate an immune defense, leading to inflammation. If your liver does not function properly, nothing else will.

The liver is an organ the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen.The liver is essential for digesting food and ridding your body of toxic substances.
