Nine Important Points for Optimum Liver Health
(from Natural Therapy for Your Liver)

  1. Eat a natural-foods diet of high-quality fresh food with lots of variety. Lower your fat intake. Eat less refined, cooked oils and fats. Obtain essential oils from whole nuts and seeds.
  2. Rest the digestive system whenever possible. Don't eat too late at night or too early in the morning. Don't eat when not hungry, and especially never overeat.
  3. Be aware of proper food combining. Sweet fruit and cooked protein are the worst combination, causing fermentation.
  4. Liver flushes and drinking lemon-water keep the liver moisturized and free-flowing.
  5. Keep the eliminative channels open and free. Exercise to eliminate toxins via the lungs and skin. Have at least one bowel movement a day.
  6. Massage the liver area at least once a day to help remove congestion.
  7. Worry or anger can get stuck in the liver. Release these emotions in a constructive way.
  8. Antioxidants such as vitamins E and C, beta-carotene, zinc, and selenium protect against toxins. Herbal antioxidants are superior to synthetic vitamins, though both can be used together.
  9. Herbal formulas to cleanse, protect, and stimulate the liver are highly recommended. Teas for long-term use include a blend of roasted dandelion, chicory, and ginger; Puri-Tea, Polari-Tea; or any of the other teas in this book.
