Why and How to Love Your Liver
Liver cleansing is something I originally learned of a couple years ago when I began my studies as a health coach. The liver works so hard for our body and when it’s overworked or bogged down by toxins, it can’t function at the optimum level and in turn, other areas of our body or our health become compromised. The point of doing the flush is to release toxins and gallstones that have become trapped in the liver and are blocking the liver ducts.
Even though there seemed to be many benefits, it sounded a little extreme to me. I was scared to try myself as I tend to take the more sustainable approach to detoxing – simply incorporating more fresh vegetables into the diet every day, drinking warm lemon water every morning, reducing/eliminating processed foods and dairy… (I’ll post more about that soon).
While I was in Hawaii, one of my yoga teachers was so passionate about this liver flush and was able to explain it in a way that made it sound so simple and easy. After hearing her gush about the results she’s had and what she’s seen in other people (eliminate fatigue, skin issues, digested issues, or almost any other issue you could imagine) I became very curious. I figured that I drink enough red wine and coffee to warrant at least one try at it. After doing research on the subject, I decided it was time to try it myself.
There is much debate about whether or not these stones that are released are actually gallstones or if they are just a bi-product of the liquids you consume during the flush.
I don’t know for certain that I passed any true gallstones. BUT I did notice how AMAZING I felt afterwards. I eliminated toxins that had been building up and was able to relieve my horrible case of chronic fatigue and “brain-fog”. I became much more productive and sharper at work, felt lighter and more alert, was finally felt rested after sleeping soundly the whole night through. That was the best part and the reason why I decided to share with all of you.
I recommend doing some research on the flush and if you decide it’s for you, I created a free and simple two-page guidebook with tips on what to eat and how to perform the flush.
