How To Do a Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse
Signs That Your Liver Needs to Be Cleansed:
Think of how you feel on a regular, daily basis. Consider what things you may be complaining about to friends or family. Perhaps some of these may sound familiar?
● You’re always tired or “foggy”
● You’re frequently constipated
● You have seasonal allergies
● You eat healthily but don’t feel healthy
● Your skin isn’t clear
● Your skin is itchy
● You have joint pain
● You’re overweight
● You’re sensitive to chemicals, smells, or medications
● You have bad body odor
● You’re stressed or anxious
● You’re resistant to weight loss
● You have frequent mood swings
● You have bad breath
● You experience frequent gas and bloating
These are all signs that your liver could be calling out for help. Because your liver is responsible for so many internal functions, it’s often easy to see when it’s not at its best. It can affect nearly every part of your life.
The uncleaned liver is very fragile yet still a fighter. It regenerates rapidly but is grateful for you doing your part. The liver can function with only 10 percent of healthy tissue, but giving it a break can allow it to function more efficiently.
Change your lifestyle in a healthy way that will help your liver over time, the other is an all-at-once liver detox or purge.
This is the same story we’ve heard time and time again and it starts with fruits and vegetables. A lifestyle detox is a commitment to a balanced and healthy diet that promotes overall gut health. This could be finally getting serious about losing weight. It includes ditching processed foods, drinking more water, and choosing organic foods.
It’s a long-term detox that happens gradually as you make better food choices each day.
A liver cleanse is more like a shock to the system that should be done every few months or so. It’s a specific diet and protocol designed to give your liver a break and help it function more efficiently.
Liver cleanses usually last for 3 days and involve consuming only certain foods and drinks. Some people do a liver cleanse by drinking apple juice for 3 days straight. This gives the liver a chance to rest because it doesn’t have to work as hard to process other foods.
Others do a more intense liver cleanse that includes taking supplements, such as milk thistle or dandelion root, and doing a coffee enema. Coffee enemas help to stimulate the liver and promote the removal of toxins.
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonics, is another way to cleanse the body. Colonics involve flushing out the colon with water. This helps to remove built-up waste and toxins that can cause problems like constipation or diarrhea.
Colon cleansing is an important part of any detoxification program. It’s a good idea to do a colon cleanse at least once a year, and more often if you’re exposed to lots of toxins on a daily basis. There are many different ways to cleanse the colon, so find one that works best for you and stick with it.
