How to Do a Liver Flush At Home

May 31, 2008
If you have been working out regularly, eating the right foods for a few months, and trying to get enough sleep, but are not seeing any real results, a liver flush could be the answer. In many cases, after individuals have practiced poor eating habits for so long, when they do make improvements to their health, it may take the body a little while to catch on. Additionally, debris and impurities that have been caked onto the intestines can be difficult to remove, and when the digestive tract is not working properly, the liver cannot do its job. Here are some natural supplements and products you may want to add to your new health routine to help you look and feel better.

A liver flush will improve the way that your body digests food since poor digestion is the main reason for a number of diseases. When your body is able to properly absorb all the nutrients in food, you will have more energy and stamina, and you will see a large improvement in your hair and skin as well. As you are cleaning out the liver, it is important to eat a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains so that you can get your daily allowance of fiber. You may need to eat more than the recommended amounts when you are starting the liver cleanse, just to make sure that your body is not malnourished.

For optimum liver health, try taking a few capsules of milk thistle a few times each day as part of your liver flush. These should be taken with water after a meal, and you may find that you will have a bowel movement within thirty minutes of taking the supplements. Milk thistle prompts the liver into action by helping it to secrete necessary fluids on a more regular basis. These fluids help to move the substances in the large intestine along, which result in regularity. Many people also take milk thistle to help clear up acne and blemishes and the supplement has been known to provide results within a few days.

You may also want to start your liver flush with dandelion, which can be taken in conjunction with milk thistle. Dandelion helps to increase your energy and regulate your blood flow, and it can also help your body to secrete impurities from the blood into your stool at a much faster rate. Many people take liquorice for this reason as well, but the root can make you hoarse if you take too much. Consequently, it is not recommended in large amounts for singers and public speakers.

You can also create your own liver flush formula using olive oil, Epsom salts, grapefruit or lemon juice and water. You will need to drink this concoction several times a day for maximum benefit, but be sure to stop if you feel more fatigued or get sick to your stomach.

As always, consult with your doctor if you are experiencing any health problems or have any doubts or concerns. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not do a liver flush.
