LIVER


What self-care and wellness actions can you take to improve the health of your liver and live longer?

         CLEANSE YOUR POOR LIVER THAT HAS TO FILTER ALL THE PRODUCTS YOU PUT IN OR ON YOUR BODY
 

1.  If you have liver problems, chances are you need to cleanse your liver. You may smoke, live in a toxic environment, take drugs that can tax your liver, eat wrong, and/or drink alcohol. To cleanse your liver, drink a flush drink for liver cleansing: juice of 1-2 grapefruit or 2 oranges, l clove of garlic and l tablespoon of olive oil and the juice of two fresh lemons. A sprinkle of cayenne pepper is optional. Drink the mixture for breakfast. Follow with two glasses of warm water or herbal tea (dandelion leaf or root, oatstraw,  peppermint, yarrow, chickweed or red clover). Eat nothing solid until lunch.

 

    CLEANSING FOODS TO EAT 

 

2.  Eat the following foods to cleanse your liver: artichokes, watercress, fresh lemon juice, celery, and papaya

 

3.  Take milk thistle (silymarin). Alternative Medical Review summarized the use of milk thistle and its use in the treatment of hepatitis, fatty liver, cirrhosis and viral hepatitis.

 

CHANGE YOUR PAIN MEDS TO PROTECT YOUR LIVER 

 

4.  Take  SAMe for pain. This popular supplement works as well as ibuprofen and other pain killers, but has fewer adverse effects, according to Clinician Reviews. It may also help relieve liver condition symptoms White willow, a herb, is also very good and can also help your circulation.

 
CHANGE WHAT YOU EAT TO PROTECT YOUR LIVER
 

5.  Avoid all meats ad chicken, unless free range. Avoid fish unless arctic salmon.  No sugar, alcohol, coffee or tea (except herbal), fried foods, processed foods or flours, salt, strong spices, preservatives, additives or synthetic vitamins. Eat pickles, sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables to stimulate the healthy function of your liver. Other cleansing foods include pineapple, celery, parsley, watercress and fresh grapes. Eat a lot of steamed vegetable and tofu meals, concentrating on green vegetables. With lunch and dinner have 2 tablespoons of  grated beets with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Eat bland, avoiding onion, garlic (except in the liver flush drink), radishes and spices. Avocados are good.

 
WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE INFECFTIOUS HEPATITIS
 

6.   For infectious hepatitis, take 1,000 mg. of vitamin C every 2-4 hours with a full glass of water; and a calcium citrate-magnesium capsule; take a B complex capsule, vitamin E, and lecithin (Vegetarian Times/Well-Being).

 
CIRRHOSIS SELF CARE
 

7.  If you have cirrhosis, try taking zinc as a supplement. In a study reported in the Romanian Journal of Internal Medicine, patients who were given zinc considerably improved after 30 days.

 

AVOID TYLENOL 

 

8.  Avoid taking acetaminophen (Tylenol). A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association  found that Tylenol was associated with liver toxicity. Use SAMe or white willow  instead (see # 4 above).

 
LOSE WEIGHT
 
9. Lose weight if overweight. Every pound you're overweight puts more strain on your liver and reduces your lifespan.
 
DRINK THIS EVERY MORNING
 
10.Here's a refreshing and cleansing drink to have first thing every morning before eating:

1. 1 tablespoon molasses

2. 2 tablespoons aloe vera juice *choose versions supplied in glass bottles OR 1/4 cup of the whey you get from straining organic plain yogurt + 1 teaspoon sea salt and no molasses

3. 2 thin sliced beets ground up; can use canned beets, but fresh is better

4. Follow with a shot glass of apple cider vinegar (most critters and cysts and other non-wanteds don't like an acidic environment.)
