At Home Natural Liver Detox

The liver is the body’s main organ of purification. The liver filters waste from the blood and sorts out the good food that you have eaten from the bad. It sends the good energy to its proper destination in the body and gets stuck trying to break down and eliminate the bad. When your liver gets blocked with toxins, it functions become impaired and your body’s overall health is greatly compromised.

Substances that Poison the Liver

The liver can become handicapped by overindulgence in alcohol, cigarettes, or other poisons. Food, drink, or anything that is taken in the stomach or otherwise ingested must be cleaned up by the liver. This includes fatty foods, unnatural food products with chemical additives, and over-the-counter drugs. Environmental debris taken in through the lungs, such as air-pollution and secondhand smoke, all get filtered by the liver. Even toxins taken in through the skin, like chemicals from lotions and creams, must pass through this organ to be broken down and eliminated through the body’s pathways.

Symptoms of Liver Imbalance

When the liver loses its functioning ability, we immediately feel the effect, with many of our body’s systems moving out of balance. A toxic liver can result in “poor immune function, low energy levels, lack of digestive wellness, poor functioning of the heart and respiratory systems, and overall lowered health status. Removal of these toxins can be transforming on many levels, providing an increase in energy and creativity.”

How to Detox the Liver Naturally

To detox the liver naturally, try sipping homemade lemon tea. Make the tea by squeezing half a lemon into a cup of hot water. The lemon tea will stimulate the liver’s detoxifying capabilities, encouraging it to rid itself of troublesome substances. It will also help the liver to dissolve fats which are blocking the system. Try to drink this tea every morning when you wake up to keep your liver clean and healthy.

As an herbal supplement, milk thistle (sometimes formulated with Silymarin) has been used since the 15th century for ailments of the liver. Milk thistle helps normalize liver function and detoxify the liver. Silymarin promotes the flow of bile (which is a kind of natural soap which the liver produces) and helps tone the liver as well. Follow instructions on the package for dosage information.

Tumeric also reduces liver insulation, typically 1,000 mg daily. Also try dandelion. This supports the gall bladder and is a great herbal extract.
