How To Cleanse Your Liver
Hey, guys. Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I wanted to talk about how to cleanse your liverand the top ways to detox your liver. Your liver is your second largest organ, and itis so important for detoxification, for cleansing, for your overall health. So I'm going to goover my five top ways that you can detox your liver on a regular basis. And number one is start by removing all thetoxic stuff in your diet. Listen, you can take all the pills, all the supplements, allthe potions. And you know what? They will not do any good until you start getting thejunk out of your diet. So step number one
in doing a liver cleanse is to remove theprocessed grains and sugars and fast foods and packaged foods. Get rid of it all andjust eat real food. Fruit it in its whole form, vegetables in its whole form, organicgrassfed meats, sprouted whole ancient grains, stick with those types of foods if you wantto naturally cleanse your liver, and stay away from packaged, processed foods, especiallyconventional meat and dairy. Conventional meat and dairy are loaded withpesticides, herbicides, GMO residue, antibiotic drugs, steroids, hormones, other medicationresidue. Those are all stuck in those meat products that you consume. So again, stopconsuming conventional meat and dairy is the
number one step to detox your liver for good. Step number two is start consuming liverdetoxifyingherbs. There's three specifically milk thistle, turmeric, and dandelion. Now, milkthistle is known as the king of detoxifying herbs, and it's been shown to specificallyboost an antioxidant in your body called glutathione, which helps detox your liver and your cells.So milk thistle, again, the number one herb, typically 150 milligrams twice daily of milkthistle will play a huge role in supporting liver detoxification. The second herb is turmeric. Turmeric hasbeen shown to be very high in antioxidants
that helps both the liver and the gallbladder.So turmeric, you typically want to do about a tablespoon daily in your food or supplementingwith two capsules daily of about 1000 milligrams. That's also going to help. The other greatthing about turmeric is it reduces liver inflammation. So it reduces inflammation of your GI tract,so your colon as well as of your liver. So again, 1000 milligrams of turmeric daily,great for reducing liver inflammation and cleansing the liver. The third herb is dandelion. Dandelion ispacked with potassium and other herbal compounds that have been shown to act as a diureticand causing your liver to release toxins and
also support the gallbladder in releasingbile. That's really what's going to cause that liver to dump the toxins. So there's a great benefit of taking milkthistle, turmeric, and dandelion in a combination in a cell detox or a liver detox supplement.But again, those three herbal extracts are the most effective herbs at naturally detoxifyingthe liver. Not to say there's not others, like bupleurum and a few others that are greatfor the liver. But those are some of my favorites. The third thing you need to do to detox yourliver is to work on your body emotionally and detox your emotions. According to ancientChinese medicine, the emotions you experience
directly affect certain organs. When it comesto your liver and cleansing your liver, there are specific emotions of number one wouldbe frustration. The other one is resentment, unforgiveness, and anger. Those are the fouremotions that directly affect your liver. So if you know you struggle with frustration,if you tend to get frustrated easily, if you have anyone in your life, including your spouseor coworkers that you tend to have resentment towards them, know that you're not hurtingthem, you're hurting yourself. You're hurting your liver. Those toxic emotions are literallyshutting down your liver and your body, creating disease in your system.
How To Minimise Aggravations With Candida Treatment And Recovery
Thanks for tuning into my tutorial again. Andthank you also for looking at my Candida Crusher YouTube channel. I'm very pleased with allthe amazing comments I've been receiving on my channel, and it's for people like you outthere that I make these tutorials. If I can help people out and give them some relief, showthem some shortcuts to recovery from a yeast infection, that's the whole aim of this channel.I'm going to read a little bit out of my book, Candida Crusher, about aggravations and howto minimize them. This might give you a little bit of an insight that you don't have to feelbad with treatment. There are many different types of aggravationspeople experience who come to seek the help
of a health care professional. Some peoplecome in with one or several pharmaceutical druginduced side effects such as after anantibiotic. Others experience a reaction when they stop taking a drug or switch brands ofdrugs. Many people can potentially develop aggravations at the beginning of natural therapytreatment, and this can be quite discouraging for some people. Those who are used to conventionalmedicine find the concept of feeling worse before you feel better a bit disturbing andsome find it even a bit crazy. Particularly those who strongly adhere to the tenets ofmodern medicine. Modern medicine believes that a diagnosis must first come before thetreatment, and the treatment is usually in
the form of a drug. It supposedly cures thecomplaint by way of eradicating the symptom. Aggravations can come about from several differentreasons and here are six examples of common reactions that I see regularly occurring withpatients. 1. The drug side effects that we call iatrogenicdisease. Every day in my , I see patients coming in with druginduced side effects.I had a lady today taking the oral contraceptive pill with headaches. A drug side effect. Iget patients in with constipation or diarrhea from taking painkilling medications. I getpatients who take sleeping pills that get all sorts of drowsiness during the day. Iget patients taking antihistamines that get
Vitamin B12 deficiencies. The list goes onand on. We get patients taking drugs to reduce cholesterol with CoQ10 deficiencies. The listgoes on and on and on. Every drug has a side effect. Side effects can be horrific for patientsand we call druginduced disease iatrogenic disease.2. Coming off any medications or detoxifying from pharmaceutical drugs. Many people startnatural treatment and stop drugs. This can make them very sick if they stop too quickly.Coming off a drug or dropping a drug in favor of a natural treatment can create strong symptoms,and these can be seen as a reaction to treatment. When, in fact, they're detoxifying reactions.3. A change in diet after commencing treatment.
Many people start treatment and go on thesecrazy diets, these weird ass diets. They'll start drinking lots and lots of fruit juiceor vegetable juice. They'll ditch all the carbohydrates. They'll ditch gluten. They'llditch dairy. They'll ditch this. They'll start making major radical changes to their diet.They'll stop all alcohol, all coffee. They'll go on this health kick, and they feel terrible.And then they wonder whether it's all worth it. And the will say, quot;Well, what doyou expect? You went over to the witch s instead of me. Of course, you're feeling bad.quot;Don't make change quickly. Change needs to happen slowly. It needs to become a permanenthabit for you. They say it takes two or three
weeks for a habit to become a permanent thing,so go very slowly with the changes you make. Don't do anything quick.4. Combining several different treatments, drugs and dietary supplements all at the sametime. This is madness. You can't do that. You need to follow one treatment at a time.Don't follow two or three treatments at the same time. You can combine pharmaceuticalswith natural medicines, but you need to see someone who is very expert at understandingthis concept and who knows what's going to clash, what the side effects from things couldbe, what a detox reaction is going to be. Some medicines just don't work well with somenatural medicines, so you need to be careful
