Judy Seeger, ND gives your the top foods to eat for your liver cleanse diet PLUS bonus tips.
What is the hardest working organ in your body?
Surprisingly, its your liver!
When you eat processed foods, your liver has to break it down. If you take medications, your liver has to break it down. Food additives, chemicals, everything and anything you’re exposed to has to go through your liver!
When your liver is overworked, and underpaid, it gets over-loaded! Then the rest of your body has to kick in to store toxins – this is where trouble comes in with diseases!
If you don’t clean your kitchen, those dirty dishes pile up and start making your house smell awful. Same with your liver! If it doesn’t get cleaned out, it will store those toxins and you start getting bad breath, bad body odor and then eventually those stored toxins cause you to lose energy.
You can feel – Depressed, irritable, angry, restless, or anxious when your liver is overloaded. On top of that, gallstones can form because your liver is too busy with filtering out those toxins.
Now you can have pain on the right side of your stomach which can even shoot up the right side of your body! It’s best to do a liver cleanse at least 4 times a year. Doing it over the weekend is the easiest.
You can easily get a liver cleanse program on the internet, but if you want to have the most effective results, you’ll want to do a pre-cleanse. I have all these therapies I used in my clinic in this easy to follow ebook: Shatter Your Gallstones Without Painful Surgery
