When under threat the human being always relies on its vital organs as first line of defence. Body wants to protect these vital organs at any cost in order to survive. Today We will start knowing our first pathway. It is connected to Liver and brain neurotransmitter dopamine. The liver is a key, frontline fighter Ideally positioned to detect pathogens entering the body via the gut, the liver appears designed to detect, capture, and clear bacteria, viruses, and macromolecules.

This organ is an important barrier between us and the outside world. In simple terms it is the male element and responsible for heat production of body. The purpose of taking food is also thermogenesis only i.e. maintaining your body temperature. This is a constant struggle body does with environment in order to maintain integrity. In both conditions of underheat and overheat liver is diseased. How to know health of your liver. Liver health reflects at three points in immunity scorecard also. Questions to be asked are how clear is your skin? Do you fall prey to skin disease often? How active you are? Do you feel urge to do work all day long? How you tolerate hunger. Do you feel giddiness if you don’t eat? In general Pitta personality is good fit body shape and warm to meet, positive personality. These people get less fat on body because of high temperature setting of their body as a result are strong built. They are seldom infected with cold diseases. They are only prone to warm climates and hot food may turn them off. In cold climates they thrive. Cold environments are well tolerated by them. On the contrary in hot climates they face problems. We will continue more on Liver.

There is particular temperature range in which body functions and body tries to maintain that peak temperature in spite of external environmental changes as well as internal environmental changes. The external factors are heat, cold changes in temperature whereas internal changes are characterized by water and food. Both of these have strong impact on internal temperature. If this impact becomes negative that is what is we call disease. So whenever we eat food and take water it impacts our internal temperature settings.

Liver creats the heater or gas burner effect in body without which there will be no digestion and absorption. So Liver represents warm pathway, there is always minimum heat required to maintain liver and if we fail to supply the fuel body will create that itself by producing inflammation. So inflammation is not a disease as is prevalent but it is only reflex in which it provides required heat to survive the challenge otherwise system will become too cold. So liver can work in three directions of course these are not independent of other 2 pathways which we will discuss later.

Liver can under heat, appropriate heat and overheat. Under heated liver can give rise to excess weight. Whereas appropriate heat helps to keep body fit and overheat gives rise to weight loss. This all depends upon what food and when you are taking food. Corona virus is affecting liver pathway and excess fever is liver overheating but the clue here was can we control heated liver. The answer is yes and no. Yes to those who know this, no to those who doesn’t know how to release excess heat.
