If you find yourself feeling tired and foggy lately, your liver may be to blame. As many as 80% of women have fat buildup in the all-important organ, which causes a pileup of toxins that leave us feeling fatigued. To the rescue: bitter foods. They help restore liver function by boosting the production of compounds that help flush fat from the liver. To get the benefits, aim to enjoy at least 2 cups of bitter greens, like arugula, mustard and dandelion greens, chard or watercress, each day.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
