Looking After Your Body, Organ By Organ

Who doesn’t want to be healthy? The truth is that many people do not really know everything they should about how to keep as healthy as possible. Many others might well know, but not always be able to keep up the motivation to do so. Either way, the knowledge is the first and foremost concern which you need to get to grips with if you want to make sure your body stays in the best possible condition. Of the many health concerns that we all have, one major thing is to ensure that you are looking after all of your organs. When they do not function properly, it can mean serious problems for your ongoing health, so taking care of you organs is hugely important. Let’s look at them one by one and see what you might be doing wrong, and where you could improve.


You don’t need to be told that the brain is an important part of the body. A well functioning brain means that you are able to think clearly, quickly and logically, and that you can keep a good level of control over your emotions. All of these are vital for a healthy and happy life, but are you doing everything you should be doing to keep your brain in its best possible state? As it happens, looking after the brain might be easier than you think, as long as you follow some of the following pieces of advice.

One of the most vital things of all is to ensure that you are eating a proper, balanced diet and drinking plenty of water. This is ultimately the fuel that your brain needs to function properly, so you should make sure not to avoid this particular part of brain care. Another hugely important factor is sleep. Most people do not really get all the sleep that they need in order for their brain to function as perfectly as possible. You need to ensure you are getting enough sleep for your brain to work well, but not so much that you are over-tired and groggy.

Similarly, you will need to try and find the right balance with your exercise. You need to exercise a decent, average amount in order to be able to think clearly, but too much exercise can deplete your serotonin levels, possibly leading to depression and anxiety. Find a balance that feels right for you, and that is probably what you should be going for. Above all, you should do whatever you can to keep your brain as stimulated as you like. Giving it fresh stimuli on a regular basis will ensure that depression is kept at bay, and will help it to develop new neural pathways which will lead to a more adaptive and malleable brain. You will notice the difference, because you will think more clearly and have better emotional control.

Look after the brain, and you will find it positively impacts almost every part of your life, so this is one of the most important organs you can possibly worry about. But it’s not the only one worthy of our attention here.


Clearly enough, the organ that ensures that blood continues to pump around your body is obviously going to be another important thing to look out for. Everyone knows that taking care of the heart is important, but relatively few people do everything they should be doing to keep it in the best state possible. If you are keen to improve the way you treat your heart, consider the following options.

Firstly, it is a good idea to cut out any habits which might be worsening your heart’s ability to function properly. This means stopping smoking, or at least cutting down on it. It is also a good idea to keep your drinking under control, as this can adversely affect your heart more than most people realize. You will also want to make sure that you are watching your weight, as being obese is one of the worst ways you can possibly affect your heart’s ability to function. Similarly, if you find that you are prone to inactivity, you might want to find a way to keep yourself as active as possible. Getting a regular amount of exercise ensures that your heart retains its ability to pump blood under stress, which is the main thing it needs to be able to do. So exercising - in particular cardiovascular exercise - is essential for the best heart health possible.

Diet is hugely important, and is worth looking at on its own. For a start, you want to ensure that you keep your cholesterol relatively low. This means avoiding overly fatty foods like cheeses or butters - not that you have to do away with them entirely, of course. You also want to make sure that you are actively taking supplements which will help your heart to function properly. Something like shilajit resin is a good start - or you could consider taking vitamins and minerals as part of your daily diet. As long as you are focusing on these things, your heart should be able to remain in a healthy state for much longer.

Above all, do what you can to keep stress down in your daily life. Too much stress affects the heart as badly as anything else, and it is worth finding ways to keep your anxiety levels low. Do this, and you will feel the difference in your heart - and you will be much more likely to live longer too.


The largest organ in your body, the liver carries out hundreds of essential jobs every day - yet it is one of the most commonly abused and overlooked organs for most people. If you think you might be able to take better care of your liver, the good news is that there are many ways to do so. Carrying out the following will ensure that your liver lives on much longer, and keeps on protecting your body from diseases and infections.

The main poison that affects the liver is alcohol, so keeping your alcohol intake to a minimum is likely to be a very good idea. If you find that you drink too much, instead try to replace it with a non-alcoholic drink. You will find that this makes a huge difference, and it will give your liver a fighting chance of keeping your body safe from infections and disease, as well as other poisons which might find their way into your body.

As well as cutting down on the drinking, you might want to consider reducing the amount of caffeine you drink as well. Caffeine can have a particularly bad effect on the liver, so reducing your intake of it will make a huge difference to the way your lovers functions daily.

If you really want to give your liver a rare boost, you should consider eating your greens. Green vegetables - particularly of the organic variety - have a way of making the liver regulate its natural acidity levels, as well as reducing excess fat and fluid stores, all of which helps the liver to do what it does best. It will also assist in eliminating many of the toxins it is there to deal with.

Finally, as with most other parts of the body, getting a good amount of sleep will always help your liver to function at its highest possible level. Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep, and your liver will thank you for it.
