Our bodies are permanently under assault from toxins. There are those outside our bodies that come from our environment, there are those that our own bodies make, and of course, there are those toxins that we put into our bodies ourselves.
The liver is the clearing house for all these toxins. When it cannot process (detoxify) toxins fast enough because of overload, the toxins have to be stored in the body to be dealt with later. When these toxins stay in the body, the whole system literally becomes intoxicated. Many hundreds of different symptoms and health problems can result from a liver that is having difficulty coping with excess toxins.
