Here’s Why And How To Support Your Liver

herbs-on-white-background

The human body contains an amazing network of systems and organs, each of which has a unique function. Everything in the body is linked and that’s how we stay alive, but our health can decline if organs or systems are not functioning properly. All of the body’s systems need to work efficiently to ensure the natural elimination of toxins. Given that the average person’s toxin exposure has exponentially increased, it is integral for the body’s detoxification systems to be operating at peak efficiency.

 

What Does The Liver Do?

According to ancient Chinese medicine, a physician who can harmonize the liver has the knowledge to treat one hundred diseases. As one of the hardest working organs in the body, the liver converts nutrients from the foods we eat for the body to use. When the body metabolizes fat, protein, and carbohydrates, the liver helps to stabilize blood glucose levels in order to avoid blood sugar imbalances or metabolic problems. It also helps to filter out toxins from the environment and the foods we eat, working to clear the blood of impurities. Additionally, it helps to store blood, regulate blood supply, and break down damaged blood cells for elimination.

 

This is all to say that the body’s ability to naturally detox is greatly affected if the liver isn’t functioning properly. When the body is flooded with toxins, one can experience chronic inflammation that further impairs the liver’s ability to do its job. To avoid toxic build-up in the body, it is recommended to limit your exposure to toxins (from the environment and food) and support liver health. Use the following herbs to promote a healthier liver.

 

Licorice Root:

Licorice root has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries to aid with healthy liver function. According to a small study, consuming licorice root helps to increase the body’s production of interferon, which is a protein that is released to combat viruses. Licorice root also promotes the liver’s ability to naturally eliminate toxins.

 

Sulfuric Vegetables:

While these are not considered herbs, sulfuric vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and mushrooms contain glutathione. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that helps to destroy free radicals in the body. Adding these vegetables to your diet can activate phase one and two of liver detoxification. Eat your greens like your mother told you!

 

Milk Thistle:

Probably the most well-known herb for supporting the liver, milk thistle is rich in silymarin, which is a compound that protects liver cells from damage. Silymarin does this by repairing liver cells that have been damaged by toxin absorption. Milk thistle has also been used as a natural remedy for hepatitis and alcoholic liver disease.

 

Dandelion Tea:

B vitamins are essential to fuel methylation, the body’s biochemical “superhighway” that is responsible its detoxing abilities. Dandelions are rich in B vitamins, so it is beneficial for the liver to drink a cup of dandelion tea. While all parts of the dandelion plant can promote liver health, it is the dandelion root that is best. Note that dandelion can be a soft diuretic, so be careful not to take too much.

    Q: I am concerned about my liver, the Iridologist informed me that my liver is not working properly. Could the lesions be manifested because of my liver not working properly?

    Q: I've been doing raw for about 28 days and I am on day 9 of the FULL BODY DETOX. I have noticed that my hands are orange occasionally. This also was present before doing the raw fast and detox as well. I looked on your website to see if you had any articles pertaining to this but didn't see any. I have read up a little on jaundice, but I experience this only on my hands (palms only, not in eyes or anywhere else). 5 or 6 years ago I was experiencing pain in my liver area and began changing my diet. Shortly after that I went to see an acupuncture therapist for a back injury (car accident) and he asked had I'd been experiencing pain anywhere else and I told him in the liver area. He treated me for both. I never have pain in my liver area again but was unsure what the orange hands are all about. I don't know if that is too much information, but I'd really appreciate any information you can give me on this issue.

    A:

    Orange or yellowish hands or feet denote TOXICITY. The body is toxic, especially the liver and needs to be cleansed periodically. Give the FULL BODY DETOX a try! Soak your hands in hot water (as hot as you can bear it) and 1 box of sea salt for about 30 minutes daily. I had this problem some years ago. I was going through times, had been through so much. I went and got a manicure one day and the Asian lady could read palms and told me I needed to relax. I had been doing everything by myself for a long time in life and needed to rest. She kept emphasizing rest. While this was true, my body also needed to detox. The anger in me at certain people and certain circumstances was stored in my liver (the liver stores anger). But in order to start a new life and live life anew, I had to work on my LIVE-R.

    Q: My mother has just found out from a blood test that Hep C was found in her liver/ blood. We are believers in Jesus Christ and His Word, so we don't like to speak negative words that are contrary to what we believe and hope to manifest from the spiritual into the natural. The condition of her liver is to the point that her skin has erupted from head to toe with blisters, rash, etc. We have always been herb heads and into natural healing. We have read your article on Hepatitis and I found it to be a true answer to prayer, you described my mother to a T. This information has helped me to better understand my mother and have compassion toward her negative attitude she struggles with, so I am grateful to you for that.

    A:

    Hepatitis C is easy to knock out! She just needs to detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and drink Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root tea.

    Q: I've ordered the 20 day body cleanse for my husband who has been diagnose with (RCC) Renal Cell Cancer which is in the kidney & spread to the Right lung and liver. They were going to take the kidney out today but could not because the right lung has filled with fluid it is being drained now they have started on the chemo pill SUNITINIB I've told the Dr. about the dherbs pills he said it was fine for him to take them along with the chemo pill he's has been on raw for 12 days also taking 2ounces of pure wheat grass a day is there anything else he can take to kill the cancer cells in the lung and liver?

    A:

    The chemo pill is not going to help him because it's a poison - his body won't recognize it! He'd do fine with just the raw foods, wheat grass, and FULL BODY DETOX herbs. But it is your choice to do whatever you are going to do. Cells become cancerous because of starvation of OXYGEN. He should add 30 drops of OXY-DROPS to every glass of drinking water.?

    Q: I bought the 10 day Liver cleanse, & I have a question about the average weight loss. Is it really between 10-25 pounds that could be released?

    A: All of the Cleanses are going to help with weight loss because of the diet that it requires you to keep.  When you eliminate waste and replenish the health of your liver, it helps with necessary weight loss.  Your body has it's own intelligence, it won't allow you to lose necessary weight if you're already at the appropriate weight for your height.  You can lose anywhere from 10-25 pounds on the 10 Day Liver Cleanse because the liver detoxes the entire body when it's functioning at a high level.

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time.

    Q: I ordered a several different extracts i.e. ANTI VIRAL, LIVER, COLON, ANTI VIRAL to do a body cleanse because I can't take pills, but I was wondering if these were actually for kids because its sweet and doesn't seem to be as affective for adults. Is this the case are these for kids? Or should I just keep taking them? If not when are the liquid body cleansers available?

    A:

    EXTRACTS ARE NATURALLY SWEET DUE TO THE VEGETABLE GLYCERIN USED TO MAKE THEM. CAPSULES ARE BY FAR MORE POTENT THAT EXTRACTS SO IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE EXTRACT MAY BE, IT WILL NOT BE AS POTENT AS CAPSULES.

    Q: What canIuse to help these issues

    A: We recommend starting off with 10 Day Liver Cleanse to specifically help replenish the health of the organ. It’s best to move on to The Full Body Cleanse after. In doing The Full Body Cleanse you’re detoxing all of your major organs including the liver, giving your overall body the reset it needs. The regimens and adjusted diet helps recondition your body function properly. After cleansing you can help maintain your liver health by continuing with the Liver-Gallbladder-Spleen Formula. Repeating the 10 Day Liver Cleanse would be ideal to further help the healing process of the organ.  By day 10 on the Full Body Cleanse, most people don’t have an issue with high blood pressure. When you eliminate the foods that contributes to issue and you replace it with foods that naturally lower your blood pressure, your body knows how to normalize itself.
