Liver Cleansing Detox – My Tried and True Recipe
“The bottom line is,” my naturopathic doctor was telling me, “for good health and a strong immune system you have to get your kidneys, liver and colon cleaned up. And the ways to do all that cleansing are not as easy as washing your face.”
The liver is tremendously important in the big picture of good health. Its primary functions are:
1. Production of bile
2. Cleansing the blood
3. Lymph production
4. Carbohydrate metabolism
5. Protein metabolism
6. Lipid (fat) metabolism
7. Storage of vitamins and minerals
8. Crucial actions in immune system
9. Controls sugars
10. Red blood cells – stimulates production and removes dead ones.
11. Bone function
12. Produces life dependent enzymes
13. Removes drugs and poisons
This is just a brief overview of the 500 known functions of the liver. Now you can understand better why it is so important to tune it up.
Here’s my liver flush recipe. I have tried other liver cleansing detox methods, but this one works for me.
First and very important, do a parasite cleanse. The liver will not flush if there are live parasites in it, and you will wake up in the night as sick as you have ever been. It’s bad. Don’t risk it. Get a tincture or capsules from your health food store. It doesn’t matter the form, but you must have these three ingredients:
2. Wormwood, and
3. Black Walnut Hull
Follow the direction for a full 10 days to 2 weeks. I’m serious. Don’t risk getting sick like that.
Also, try to get off coffee and meat for a week or so before the flush. The better you prepare your system by eating a clean diet, the better and easier the process will be. Taking supplementary detox herbs will help support the liver. Ask your naturopath for a recommendation, or go ask your health food store salesperson for help with this purchase.
OK – The morning of the flush, ask yourself if this is the day. Trust your instincts. If you get a “no”, then wait a few days and try again.
On the day, drink 16 ounces of organic apple juice upon waking. Then drink 8 ounces every 2 hours until 4 or 5 o’clock. After that, only water. No food all day. If you must eat something, eat an apple. The apple juice softens the stones so they slip out easily.
Then, a half hour before bed, make the following potion:
2 ounces fresh squeezed organic lemon juice
2 ounces fresh squeezed organic pink grapefruit juice. It makes the oil like water!
3 ounces of organic olive oil.
Put it in a jar, shake it up and drink it down. You will be amazed at how the grapefruit juice changes the oily texture of the olive oil. It is much easier to drink this way.
Thirty minutes later, do it all over again. Only this time, drink it by your bed, standing up. Then get into bed. Do not clean up the kitchen. Do nothing but get into bed. Lie on your right side if you like or flat on your back. Try to remain quite still for the next 30 minutes.
The next day – stones! Pea green and most often pea sized globules floating in the toilet to show you how successful you have been. They are made of fat so they will float, and they will be the unmistakable green color of bile. You may feel tired and nauseated so do it on a weekend when you can have time to rest. Definitely drink a lot of water. Your body is really working to help itself. The next day you will feel much better.
If you don’t get stones, your liver needs a little coaxing. Diet is key, so try again after 2 weeks and after you eat simply for a few days; fresh fruits and vegetables, and no fried foods.
Once you do get your liver to open up, you will love how you feel afterwards: clean, light, happy and with digestion noticeably improved. …
