In Western terms, no other organ has the size and breadth of the liver. No other organ has as much responsibility, is susceptible to toxins and damage, or has the capacity for regeneration. In this class, Dr. Peter Bongiorno will discuss the function of the liver and the central role it plays in many of today’s common ailments. You’ll learn to identify both the subtle and overt signs of an unhealthy liver, what foods and remedies best support its function, and the benefits and appropriate use of liver detoxification. There must be 50 ways to love your liver.
Dr. Peter Bongiorno graduated from Bastyr University, the leading accredited university for science-based natural medicine. He completed five years of training in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture, and was honored to be his class speaker.
