Your liver is your second largest organ, and it is so important for detoxification, for cleansing, for your overall health.
Removing all the toxic stuff in your diet
Listen, you can take all the pills, all the supplements, all the potions. And you know what? They will not do any good until you start getting the junk out of your diet. So step number one in doing a liver cleanse is to remove the processed grains and sugars and fast foods and packaged foods. Get rid of it all and just eat real food. Fruit it in its whole form, vegetables in its whole form, organic grass-fed meats, sprouted whole ancient grains, stick with those types of foods if you want to naturally cleanse your liver, and stay away from packaged, processed foods, especially conventional meat and dairy. Conventional meat and dairy are loaded with pesticides, herbicides, GMO residue, antibiotic drugs, steroids, hormones, other medication residues. Those are all stuck in those meat products that you consume. So again, stop consuming conventional meat and dairy is the number one step to detox your liver for good.
Start consuming liver-detoxifying herbs
There’s three specifically — milk thistle, turmeric, and dandelion.
Now, milk thistle is known as the king of detoxifying herbs, and it’s been shown to specifically boost an antioxidant in your body called glutathione, which helps detox your liver and your cells. So milk thistle, again, the number one herb, typically 150 milligrams twice daily of milk thistle will play a huge role in supporting liver detoxification.
The second herb is turmeric. Turmeric has been shown to be very high in antioxidants that help both the liver and the gallbladder. So turmeric, you typically want to do about a tablespoon daily in your food or supplementing with two capsules daily of about 1000 milligrams. That’s also going to help. The other great thing about turmeric is it reduces liver inflammation. So it reduces inflammation of your GI tract, so your colon as well as of your liver. So again, 1000 milligrams of turmeric daily, great for reducing liver inflammation and cleansing the liver.
The third herb is dandelion. Dandelion is packed with potassium and other herbal compounds that have been shown to act as a diuretic and causing your liver to release toxins and also support the gallbladder in releasing bile. That’s really what’s going to cause that liver to dump the toxins. So there’s a great benefit of taking milk thistle, turmeric, and dandelion in a combination in a cell detox or a liver detox supplement. But again, those three herbal extracts are the most effective herbs at naturally detoxifying the liver.
Detox your emotions
According to ancient Chinese medicine, the emotions you experience directly affect certain organs. When it comes to your liver and cleansing your liver, there are specific emotions of number one would be frustration. The other one is resentment, unforgiveness, and anger. Those are the four emotions that directly affect your liver.
So if you know you struggle with frustration, if you tend to get frustrated easily, if you have anyone in your life, including your spouse or coworkers that you tend to have resentment towards them, know that you’re not hurting them, you’re hurting yourself. You’re hurting your liver. Those toxic emotions are literally shutting down your liver and your body, creating disease in your system. And what we recommend you to do is get out a sheet of paper, write down all the people you haven’t forgiven, all the people you feel any ounce of resentment towards, your parents, spouses, coworkers, and really work to absolutely forgive and forget.
Another great way to do that is practice gratitude. One of the things I do every morning is I get up and say what I’m grateful for. But practicing gratitude, forgiveness, building joy into your life, reading personal growth books, reading your Bible and reading scripture and memorizing verses, those types of things really will help you become free.
Eat real liver
We are telling you to eat liver, like chicken liver or beef liver. In fact, ancient practitioners or practitioners from the past 100 years really used liver supplementation to help overcome liver toxicity and other diseases. If you look at men like Weston A. Price, the famous dentist who traveled the world and found what really caused disease, gum disease and liver disease and disease in the body. He recommended liver supplementation. Dr. Royal Lee, who started the company Standard Process, recommended raw liver supplementation and liver capsules and had great results with patients. Dr. Gerson, who started Gerson therapy, recommended beef liver in overcoming cancer. So you can see here real liver is great.
Consume foods that cleanse the liver
Specifically, think spring. Think sprouts, salads, sour foods. In fact, sour foods, according to ancient Chinese medicine, are the foods that are most nourishing to the liver. So think about this, again, a big spinach salad with sprouts, maybe some tomatoes, some cucumber and then sprinkle a little bit of olive oil. Then along with that, some apple cider vinegar. Again, you’ve got the sourness, you’ve got the fresh sprouts. But again, apple cider vinegar, sprouts, vegetables, vegetable juices, all of those foods are very cleansing to the liver along with sour foods, including most probiotic-rich foods, things like kefir. Also, sauerkraut, kimchi, beets, artichokes, dandelion greens, all of those are fantastic for naturally cleansing the liver.
