The liver is one of your most important digestive organs, specifically for regulating hormones. This is because the liver deactivates excess hormones and hormones that are no longer functional in your body. When cortisol is elevated (either from a leaky gut, poor diet, or stress response) the liver's ability to effectively remove excess hormones is highly decreased. We can talk about these hormones, like cortisol, another time. Today, let’s talk about our liver.
Ladies, we need to remember that we are powerful, that we are Divine, that we are loved by our creator and we are creators of life ourselves! The Universe, God or Divine power is a part of us and we are part of it. We just have to tap in that energy, remember who we are and start loving ourselves, life and other women. Yes, other women! The more you love other ladies, the more you love yourself because you tap into that universal feminine energy that makes you stronger. To do that, we need to support each other and stop judging each other! Women are very judgmental creatures and we need to stop that! That other lady who you judge is a little girl inside who has heard about her imperfections her whole life, just like you!

I read an interesting phrase the other day, "if you would rather watch Netflex than have sex with your partner, there's a good chance it's a hormonal problem!" You would be surprised to find out how common low libido is, but not many of us understand that in majority of cases, the root cause is hormonal, not some "routine syndrome" or lack of love and affection. Low libido is a one of many ways your body can show you that it's out of balance.
