Liver Doctor’s Nine Essential Habits for Optimal Liver Health

A healthy liver is crucial for maintaining overall well-being. This vital organ plays a significant role in filtering toxins from the blood, regulating blood sugar levels, and performing numerous other essential functions. However, poor lifestyle choices can hinder its effectiveness. Dr. Cyriac Abby Philips, widely known as The Liver Doctor, recently shared a video outlining nine habits that can significantly enhance liver health and longevity.

Firstly, walking is an excellent way to promote liver health. Younger individuals should aim for 8,000 to 10,000 steps daily, while older adults should strive for 6,000 to 8,000 steps. A minimum of 30 minutes to an hour of walking can boost longevity and well-being while reducing the risk of various illnesses, including cancer. Brisk walking, defined as taking 100 steps per minute, can decrease liver fat even without weight loss. Aiming for at least 150 minutes of brisk walking per week can yield positive results.

Running, even once a week, has been linked to increased well-being and longevity and a reduced risk of lifestyle diseases, including various types of cancer. The frequency of running can be increased based on individual fitness levels for better results.

Engaging in conventional video gaming five days a week after work can enhance mindfulness, reduce post-work fatigue and stress, and increase productivity. This can be done comfortably from an electric height adjustable standing desk, one of the best sit stand desks available.

Sleeping at least seven hours a night is crucial for maintaining a healthy liver. Daytime napping should be limited to one hour or avoided entirely. Making up for lost sleep during the weekend can help reduce the risk of fatty liver disease and its progression.

Drinking three cups of black coffee without milk or sugar daily can help reverse liver fibrosis, reduce the risk of fatty liver disease progression, and lower liver fat, especially in individuals with diabetes. However, tea does not seem to have the same benefits due to insufficient evidence.

Abstaining from alcohol can enhance longevity, well-being, and productivity while reducing the risk of nearly 30 types of cancer and various metabolic conditions. Alcohol consumption can severely impact liver health.

Avoiding late-night snacking or eating close to bedtime can help prevent metabolic diseases like obesity and improve sleep quality. It’s recommended to stop eating at least three hours before going to bed.

Lastly, staying hydrated is vital for overall health and liver function. Drinking enough water helps your body flush out toxins and waste products.

While these habits are beneficial for liver health, incorporating them into your daily routine could also improve your productivity at work. For instance, using an electric stand-up desk could help you maintain an active lifestyle while working long hours. The health benefits of an electric stand-up desk include promoting better posture and reducing the risk of obesity and other metabolic diseases.

In conclusion, maintaining a healthy liver requires a combination of physical activity, good sleep habits, a balanced diet, and avoiding harmful substances like alcohol. Implementing these nine habits into your lifestyle can significantly improve your liver’s health and longevity.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
