Herbal Remedies for the Liver

Herbal remedies are amazing.

They can help prevent, regulate and cure most liver disorders without much side effect. One of the most important remedies is maintaining a balanced diet consisting of nuts, grains, seeds, vegetables and fruits.

Carrots, papaya, cucumber, spinach, mushrooms, cabbage, tomatoes, squash, beans and eggplants are great choices to incorporate into your daily diet. All of these vegetables contain ingredients that help promote and restore the health of your liver.

There are also some specific herbal remedies for liver health. These would include extracts of artichoke, milk thistle and dandelion. Turmeric can also help promote liver health as it is an antioxidant that protects the liver from the toxins it flushes out.

Fig is also another notable herbal remedy for livers.

Liver Cleansing

Liver cleansing, or liver flushing, is a technique that is used to remove all the excess fatty acids and toxins from the liver. To cleanse, you would need fresh citrus juices, ginger root juice, cloves of garlic and a little olive oil. Mix all together and drink.

While on a ‘liver cleansing’ period, make sure that you avoid excessively fatty, oily and salty food. Try to maintain a healthy diet consisting of fresh vegetables and fruits. Also, try to avoid heavy food that will take time to digest. During your liver cleansing, its best to give your liver a little of a ‘breather’ to effectively flush out the toxins from your system.
