I talk about cleaning the liver a lot, but I wanted to run back through again because cleaning the liver is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
People talk a lot about cleaning and fixing the gut, which is important. However, how do you think the inflammation in the gut is pulled out? The way that the liver works is via the blood and lymphatics. The blood and the lymph run all around the body and they collect all the metabolic trash that is created and sitting in the muscles, brain, heart, gut, lungs and everywhere else.
They also collect all the waste and toxins from what we eat, breathe and drink. The problems arise when the liver gets too dirty, which can happen from too much waste, bad diet, stress, parasitic infection, medication, allergies and many other things.
When the liver gets dirty/too full, it can no longer collect more waste from the blood and lymphatic system. We get symptoms like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia when all of this happens. The other tell-tale sign the liver is overloaded and overworked is we start to wake up between 2 and 4 in the morning.
Eastern medicine also teaches us that anger, or temper, is associated with a dirty liver. So if you notice that things are irritating you that normally wouldn’t, or shouldn’t, this can be a liver issue. So cleaning the liver is important.
There are a number of ways to clear the liver out, such as coffee enema, milk thistle, turmeric, ginger, histidine, tudca and methylated B vitamins. Out of all of these, I would recommend methylated B vitamins or coffee enemas. These will clear out the liver faster than anything else. If you want to get fancy, you can always combine these things by putting supplements into your coffee enemas and getting a superior cleaning effect.
