Detoxing Your Body Helps Your Eyes

People engage in the process of detox for a plethora of reasons. Some want to reduce inflammation, while others want enhance immune system function. Maybe there are those who want to lose weight or prevent chronic disease. While these reasons certainly top the list as to why we participate in detoxification, there is one major benefit that isn’t gathering enough attention. Your eyes.

Did you know that there is a direct correlation between liver health and vision?

Detoxification is the process of ridding the body’s system of toxins through healthy means such as fasting, proper nutrition, exercising and more. Living in this toxic world, we are daily assaulted by pollutants—be it in the air, the food, the water, and the products we handle. Every toxic substance which enters the body’s system eventually winds up in the liver. The liver’s function is to filter out the toxins from the bloodstream and ready the poisons for excretion. But what happens when the liver gets overwhelmed with too many toxins?

When the liver gets bombarded with toxic substances, it can have a negative impact, causing your organ to inflame and even cause damage. This is why it’s important to regularly detox.

But how does this affect my eyes?

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, “A deficiency in liver blood may lead to eye issues such as blurred vision, myopia and eye floaters.” If your liver health is compromised, there’s a greater amount of pollutants coursing through your bloodstream, wreaking havoc on your organs and tissues. These toxins, surging freely through your system, can attack the delicate retina and macula in the eyes resulting in the breakdown of tissue. People with poor liver health are at risk of losing their vision and other negative conditions.

Did you know that eye discomfort can be a helpful warning sign, alerting you to take care of your liver? Searching for symptoms that inform you of the need to detox can be as simple as looking in the mirror. Are your eyes puffy or are there bags under your eyes? What about the coloring of your eyes? If they appear to have a yellowish tint, then it could be a sign that you need to pay attention to your liver.

How can I fix this?

Nutrition is key! It’s important to eat plenty of raw, organic vegetables. Research has shown that a diet consisting of brussels sprouts, broccoli, mustard greens, kale are not only great for your liver but also reduce the risk of macular degeneration. Krill, wild-alaskan salmon, and red algae all contain astaxanthin—a carotenoid known for its ability to protect the eye from toxic tissue damage.

It’s also vital to avoid foods that are harmful to the liver such as sugar, processed foods, alcohol, and vegetable oil. 

By maintaining a nutrient-rich diet, you are subsequently keeping an eye out for your vision by taking excellent care of your liver.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
