Dark circles or even sunken eyes for weeks or months mean there’s a hidden problem: a liver problem. It’s true for children, too. This symptom has everything to do with a toxic, dehydrated liver creating toxic, dirty blood. Where the skin is thin under the eyes, it gets dark because the blood flowing through is lacking oxygen and filled with poisons, both from present-day exposure and from the troublemakers we inherit through our family lines.
As you’ll read about in Chapter 28, “PANDAS, Jaundice, and Baby Liver,” many children grow out of a sluggish liver. In that case, the dark circles disappear. Many people don’t grow out of it, or they develop or redevelop a sluggish liver when they’re older. It’s not a sign that your liver is failing you. It’s a sign that your liver has struggled to stay in balance and protect you, holding back as many toxins as it could, but at a certain point became so strained that it was forced to let some of them go.
If you’re thinking, Well, I don’t have dark under-eye circles, so I must not have dirty blood syndrome, not so fast. There are different levels and types of the toxins and other pesky presences that I call liver troublemakers. Some troublemakers can make dark circles appear; some can be released from the liver into the bloodstream without creating dark circles (and cause other problems). When the liver is sluggish, stagnant, troubled, and not performing to its full potential, it can release a whole cocktail of old and new troublemakers that can contribute to smudges beneath the eyes. For example, pharmaceuticals from the past or present are one of the troublemakers that can create dark circles. Toxic heavy metals can create a long-term shadow under the eye for children and adults, too, as can the family of various pesticides. What determines how severe under-eye circles are is hydration. Proper hydration on a daily basis can help clean up dirty blood and improve the liver just enough that the circles dissipate.
