Although the research is in its infancy, healers have been utilizing therapies that enhance the body’s detoxification mechanisms for ages. You may find it hard to believe that dietary adjustments, supplements, and other natural therapies to enhance detoxification can end your fatigue and increase your overall health. But if you’re tired all the time or just want to insure your body can handle the myriad of toxins it encounters daily, you need to experience for yourself the transformative powers of a natural liver detox like the one presented here.

What is a Liver Detox?

The phrase “liver detox” does not refer to drugs or alcohol, or even to juice fasting or colon cleansing, as you might think. It refers to the science of how your body rids itself of waste—a metabolic process involving the liver’s detoxification enzyme systems. These detoxification enzyme systems convert toxic substances into non-toxic, water-soluble compounds that can be eliminated through your urine, sweat, and stool. Because the liver is the body’s major site for detoxification activity, the primary focus of a liver detox is enhancement of the liver’s enzyme systems. However, the gastrointestinal tract is also instrumental in decreasing toxic load. Therefore, most liver detox protocols, including the one recommended here, also strengthen intestinal mucosa integrity and enhance colon function. 

The Goals of a Liver Detox are to:

• Increase your intake of specific nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals) required for detoxification-related biochemical processes.

• Minimize ingested allergens, toxins, and chemicals to reduce your exposure. (This provides your intestinal tract with a chance to repair and allows it to process waste and harmful compounds more efficiently.)

• Increase bowel movements and bile flow for quicker elimination of waste and toxins, minimizing toxin exposure.



• Optimize alkalinity by increasing fruits and vegetables to encourage urinary excretion of toxic compounds.

I use Diatomaceous Earth and Clay every day. Takes toxins out a little every day. I've been on DE for about 6 months now and even have hair growing back! The hair is the texture and color of my baby hair! Energy is great, skin is great. I ferment foods, too, so I eat some daily. I make and use Garlic Fermented in Raw Honey. Eat a spoonful daily and live forever! No colds or flu, either.
