It seems like everyone these days is interested in a detox liver cleanse. Listeria is the name for a pathogen that is now thought to be responsible for more than a dozen deaths each year in the United States. This news makes many people eager to try a liver cleanse and other detox techniques. But just as is the case with many similar trendy trends, not all detox liver cleanse programs are the same. And many of those who advertise cleansing programs are simply selling their own snake oil.
In fact, some of the “toxins” cleansed from the liver can be the very substances that the body needs to function normally. In theory, you would not survive a day without food and water; and the liver is the chief detoxifying organ. So, why do we need to detoxify toxins from our livers? Is it really possible to “diet” away fatty liver?
To answer the first question: no, there are no diets that will rid your body of fatty liver. Nor are there any “dieters’ aides” that will keep fatty liver from forming. Nor are there any supplements that can substitute for food and water in your body. In theory, you could starve yourself almost to death and live for years; and although most people may consider this an extreme solution, for some it is not. There are some “dieters’ aides” on the market, however, that can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise to speed the detoxes up.
Most liver cleansing diets recommend a basic cleansing diet. You are allowed some fruits, vegetables, or dairy products every day. You are also encouraged to drink a lot of water throughout the day. Generally, the program recommends that you eat a clean diet for at least two days before beginning your detoxification program.
Where can you get the supplements for liver detoxification? The following three items are highly recommended: mistletoe, echinacea, and milk thistle. These herbs should be found in many of the organic foods that you purchase, and should be available at your local health food store.
If you are looking for a supplement to take with your organic fruits and vegetables, you will want to find the following ingredients: dandelion root, ginger root, catnip, ginger leaf, and milk thistle. You should eat several small meals each day, so eating smaller portions per meal is important. Also, eating more green tea extract is a good idea, especially if you drink a lot of green tea. Green tea extract is great because it increases your body’s antioxidant levels. Antioxidants help fight free radicals, which are chemical molecules that cause aging and disease in your body.
A liver cleanse can do many things for you. If you eat a diet that is full of antioxidants and plenty of nutrients, your liver cells will be able to do their job properly and keep your blood stream clean. Also, your body will be better able to expel toxins as you expel them through your system. Finally, you will find yourself feeling healthier and happier.
