Actually, the Human Body is a thousand times more complicated than man-made machines. In the Yogic Science, these organs belong to the glands of Agni (fire); Ayurveda calls them Ranjakagni, that is, color bile. To begin with, the liquid form of digested foods is driven by the system to the Liver and Spleen for their rectification and transformation into the blood with the help of internal secretions of coloring bile.

Guide for Good Liver
- Food: The liver is responsible for digesting fats. So, eat fewer fats. If you eat more fat, Liver overworks, and it disturbs the organ to fulfill other tasks. Moreover, the Obesity problem is also related to fatty liver which is a disease.
- Alcohol Intake: Alcohol intaking has become the most widespread habit across the world in the 21st century. All income groups- poor, middle and rich are so much habituated to alcohol that there is more crowd in the queue in front of alcohol shops than medicine shops. In the developing world, there are cheap alcohol bands for the poor. Drinking is now the most common global feature of humans. It pervades the culture, education, class and gender. But the trouble is that most people do not know the grammar or syntax of hard drink. Almost all poor and majority of the middle class in tropical countries drink heavy alcohol in a very fast sequence and drink even during day time. This causes irreversible damage to the Liver and other vital organs.
- Our suggestion is that never drink alcohol when the Sun is in the sky. Also, drink moderate doses, never drink in an empty stomach, mix at least 5 times water with Lemon, drink slowly, never eat oily and spicy foods with alcohol. Eat as many fresh fruits as possible. And drink slowly.
Liver & Related Organs: Pranayama, Uddiyan, Shayana Paschimottason, Halasana, Pavanmuktasana, Shirshana, Surya Namaskar, Sarvangasana and Ustrasana.
Most people understand walking as an exercise, not a form of Yoga. When you learn the breathing technique, you will be convinced that it an integral part of Yoga. Moreover, most people who are accustomed to Walking as an Exercise do not know how to walk, how to take breathing, how to use the steps while walking.
Where to walk?
First of all, when you decide to walk, you have to choose a place where there is no pollution. In humid regions, most pollutants come down to the low levels in dusk and dawn, particularly along the roads. So please be careful to select the space where you will walk. In most developing countries, roads are not at all safe for walking, because most roads are uneven and highly congested to endanger your life. So, the best option is to go for walking in a playground or lawn, or riverside or best at your rooftop. The best time for walking is morning or evening. You should keep in mind that your stomach should not be full, do it after tea and biscuits.
How to walk?
Second, when you walk, you have to inhale full lung in 6, or 8 seconds or 6 to 8 steps and exhale in 10, or 12 seconds or steps, depending on your lung capacity. That is, 4 seconds more for exhaling your full lungs. But while inhaling or exhaling, never make sounds, it should be done silently, smoothly and in a continuous process such that even a person by your side can not listen to your breathing. You can breathe normally after every 10 minutes, and then again count the seconds by steps as above. If you practice this for a prolonged period, you will be happy to see that you can inhale for more than 10 seconds and exhale for more than 14 seconds. That is, always more time for exhaling.
What dress to use during walking?
Third, always use sports shoes or boots and trousers while walking. It will help you maintain the rhythm in walking. Here also, most people in developing countries do not use sports shoes. That may hamper your legs, toe, heels and knees in the future.
Fourth, never carry side bags, or mobiles with you when walking. They will hamper your walking rhythm and breathing.
