If you owned a magnificent race car, no doubt you would do what is needed to keep it running in tip-top condition.
You would change the oil and filters regularly, you would only use premium gasoline and you would make sure to it in for the required tunings etc. without a second thought.
But do you realize your body is more finely tuned than any race car could ever be—and just like that car, it needs to be treated with respect.
That means, it requires optimal nutrition and regular maintenance—in the form of cleanses to remove any unwanted toxins that build up from simple day-to-day living.
In a race car there are several filters that remove waste and unwanted material from entering the engine. In your body, that filter is your liver.
Your liver defends your body from everything from chemical toxins to bacteria and viruses that attempt to make it into your body.
Your Body’s Personal Chemical Processing Plant
Pretty much everything that enters your body must pass through the liver–—both beneficial nutrients and toxins of all types. It is the ultimate gatekeeper.
Your liver must decide what is “good” and what needs to be flushed out. By doing this, your liver helps to cleanse your blood, and remove any dangerous pollutants before they are able to invade the rest of your body.
But like our race car example, there is only so much room in a filter before it needs to be changed.
With today’s unnatural diet of highly processed foods essentially void of any nutritional value, your liver must work overtime to keep external pollutants from damaging your body.
Notwithstanding being the superhero that it is, even your liver has limitations and can begin to breakdown.
Safe Liver Cleanses
Any time we can do anything naturally for our body, it’s a plus. So, here are some safe, natural ways for you to help supply key nutrients needed by your liver to cleanse itself:
Your body is essentially 70% water, so it only makes sense that in order for it to function optimally you must drink water.
Water helps flush out those nasty toxins your liver is working so hard to remove, while simultaneously pushing the good nutrients throughout your body.
By the time you are thirsty, it is said you are already dehydrated so make sure you drink water consistently throughout the day.
Lemons should be listed as one of nature’s most powerful superfoods simply because they can do so much to not only keep you healthy but treat existing health issues, even cancer.
You can add lemon juice to water every time you pour yourself a glass but recent studies show that the real benefits of lemons lie in the entire lemon.
An easy way to incorporate the entire lemon into your diet is by freezing it and simply grading it into everything you eat. When you want to do a more intense liver cleanse, however, do both.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice to 8 ounces of tepid water. It won’t take long before you see your energy levels rise and you being to feel like a new person.
Among its numerous health promoting properties, according to the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand, turmeric has been shown repair damaged liver tissues. You can sprinkle some on your food or take it in capsule form.
