Cleanse Your Liver Naturally

Why Should You Cleanse Your Liver?

The liver plays an essential role in the body including metabolism, digestion, energy storage, and hormone production. It is also the major detoxifying organ in the body.

The liver is also pivotal for purifying the blood and plays a key role in converting carbohydrates to energy, as well as storing energy in the form of glycogen and fats. It is responsible for these vital functions:

  • Filtering and processing all food, nutrients, alcohol, drugs, and other materials that enter the bloodstream and letting them pass, and breaking them down or storing them
  • Manufacturing bile needed to emulsify fats for digestion
  • Making and breaking down many hormones, including cholesterol, testosterone, and estrogens
  • Regulating blood sugar levels

Virtually every function of the human body depends on the liver.

There are two major phases of normal liver detoxification:

Phase 1 Detoxification- where biotransformation take place
Phase 2 Detoxification- where conjugation takes place

Without going into the full anatomy session of the liver I will summarize for clarity purposes.

In phase one of detoxification, toxins are broken down (enzymes break down toxins, drugs, alcohol, caffeine, hormones, etc.) that are fat soluble by removing molecules of the substance.

In phase two of detoxification, the natural substances are added to the metabolites (broken down toxins) from phase one. This forms a substance that is no longer toxic and is ready to be transported out of the body.

Sounds great, right? However, if your liver is not working properly and phase two is not able to flush the broken down toxins out, your body becomes overloaded with toxins. To make sure that the liver is working properly a good liver cleanse is recommended. It is important to reduce and eliminate toxins from our environment, from foods we eat, as well as being sure to consume adequate amounts of the nutrients needed for proper detoxification.


Fun Facts About the Liver:

  • About one-fourth of your total blood volume passes through your liver every minute.
  • It is the largest organ IN the body, essential for life.
  • It produces bile to help absorb fats and fat-soluble vitamins.
  • It removes or neutralizes poisons from the blood.
  • It removes germs and bacteria from the blood.
  • It makes proteins that regulate blood clotting.

Things That Stress the Liver:

  • Blocked bile ducts
  • Chronic hepatitis B and C
  • Diabetes, protein malnutrition, obesity, and corticosteroid use
  • Exposure to chemicals and parasites
  • Inherited diseases
  • Iron overload
  • Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)
  • Poor diet
  • Coffee and soda
  • Viruses


You cannot successfully cleanse your liver without addressing the emotional side to the liver. The emotions that are connected to the liver and gallbladder are anger and resentment. Symptoms can range from restless legs, outbursts and even violence. You will learn how to put to use emotional release techniques that raise energy levels, calms the mind, changes focus, shifts perception, removes negative connections, releases blocked energy and releases those toxic, trapped emotions.

I have put together a way to naturally cleanse your liver that covers nutrition, elimination, and emotional support. Cleansing gives the body strength to fight off disease and frees the overloaded liver from the accumulation of toxins, mucus, and parasites that build up through the years. Everyone is in need of a good liver cleanse from time to time so if you would like more information on how to cleanse your liver naturally, message me to set up a consultation.


 Other natural cleansing options are:

The Fall Body Clean Up

It’s Cleansing Time!

Cleansing…..it can be a scary word for some people. We have accumulated an ever-mounting buildup of toxins, chemicals, pesticides, additives, and heavy metals that most of us unknowingly absorb from our food, cosmetics, air, water, and even from the mercury fillings in our mouth. Where do we even start?

The questions I generally get are, “What does cleansing entail? Or, will I have to give up what I do daily to cleanse properly? How often should I cleanse? Can I eat on a cleanse?” There are so many different programs and products out there that I can see why people can be so easily confused. This is why I am going to take you on a 6-week journey that will not only clean out your over used and abused body, but educate you about it as well.

All participants of the Fall Body Clean Up will learn about our body’s five elimination functions known as B.U.L.L.S….bowels, urinary, lymph, lungs, and skin. You will learn how to properly allow your body to cleanse along with feeding it the complete nutrition it so desperately needs.

Healing begins from the inside out. Cleansing gives the body the strength to fight off disease and break down the accumulation of toxins, mucous, and parasites that have built up over the years…..and yes, I did say parasites! Everyone has them in one form or another. For the most part, they go unnoticed until symptoms such as feeling achy and fatigued start.

We will concentrate on a program that requires a high consumption of water (that means distilled or purified), strong digestive enzymes, minerals, high-potency herbs, and therapeutic-grade essential oils. Why essential oils? Essential oils have a lipid-soluble makeup which give them the ability to break through cell membranes, break up undigested food, and digest toxins. They help with the bioavailability with minerals that our bodies are so desperately starved of and have been documented for their antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties.

You will learn the importance of total body health, in which we will focus on these areas:

-the body’s pH
-liver health
-water and nutrition intake
-glycemic load
-digestive enzymes
-breathing techniques
-skin care
-emotional attitude of cleansing

You will also be givin a menu to follow along with a detailed timeline of each program.

We will start with a two-week cleansing trio, focusing on the colon, liver, and kidneys. From there, we will take a one week break and then move right into at 21-day parasite cleanse.  After both cleanses, a “maintaining good health” class will be covered.

I hope to not only educate you but also encourage you to take responsibility for your health, knowing that maintenance and prevention is the key to a healthy life style.

Are There Toxins in Your Home?

Have you been hearing a lot about unknown toxins in your home and are wondering what people are talking about?  You clean your home, sanitize everything, you even burn good smelling candles… how can your home be filled with toxins?

There is so much to learn when you dive into the world of toxic-free living.  It can be overwhelming at first so I have compiled a list to start with.  Once you start reading product labels as much as food labels, you will be well on your way to toxic-free living.

For every article that you find with reports of toxins in popular household products, you can also find an article that counteracts its claims.  I do not run with the mainstream perspective so this will have to be an area that you are convicted in for you to make the switch.  Don’t settle for someone’s opinion.  Do your own research and find out what so many people are finding out.  Here is a great article that lists toxic body-care ingredients to be on the watch for.

According to an article from Bloomberg L.P., the U.S ranks 34th for healthiest countries.  Seeing how we spend more than the top three countries combined for healthcare and only rank 34th, I would say something is wrong.  It appears that healthcare is more of a business than a provision.  My point in bringing this to your attention is that not everything is as it appears.  Maybe, just maybe, our country cares more about selling products than what the effects are of the products.  I will get off my soapbox for now.

Top 5 List of Products to Ditch and Switch:

1. Laundry Soap/Detergent
2. Dryer Sheets
3. Hand Soap
4. Body Soap
5. Candles

There is so much more we could cover, but I specifically want to cover the products we use that effect our body first hand and more specifically, our skin.  Our skin is the largest absorbing organ.  Everything that goes onto the skin goes into the bloodstream.  How important do you think it is to pay attention to what you are slathering all over your skin?


1. Laundry Soap/Detergent

  We live in our clothes all day.  We sleep in a bed that is lined with fresh smelling sheets and blankets.  It’s clear that our laundry products are with us all day long.  Switching to a natural laundry detergent and fabric softener is a very easy switch.  Just make sure you are buying a detergent, not soap.  I dabbled for years in making my own laundry soap until I found out that soap and detergent are two completely different things.  I was so proud of myself for making my own soap with my awesome essential oils!  Ha… all I got was dingy clothes and a sticky washing machine.  What’s the difference you ask?  Think of it this way…. if you take a bath every night, how long does it take before you have a soap ring around your tub?  In a couple days you will start to see the appearing soap ring.  This is exactly what will to happen with your laundry after time when using soap.  It will not rinse free.  For my fellow chemist freaks out there, this article goes into detail.

2. Dryer Sheets  

With a couple of  organic wool dryer balls (you can even make your own)  and some drops of essential oils, your laundry will be soft and toxic-free.  This is not only a healthier option but a much more affordable one too.

3. Hand Soap

You can purchase natural hand soaps almost anywhere, but I highly recommend making your own.  I make a large batch once a month and refill all my jars. If you would like to tackle this project you can check out my blog article here  for step-by-step directions.  This is such a fun project to do with your kids.  Bring math and science alive AND they actually get excited about washing their hands when they have made their very own soap.  They especially like to pick out the fragrant oils to use.

4. Body Soap

Between synthetic chemicals, fragrances, and the dyes, you really need to switch to a natural body soap.  The good news for us is this trend is on the rise and natural body soaps can even be found in local grocery stores.  I am in love with my Lavender body soap from Young Living.  My kiddos even have their own Kid’s Scents …..perfect before bed time!
5. Candles

Have you ever walked into a department store that was highly fragranced by candles just to walk out with a terrible headache?  Have you ever wondered why?   I used to make and sell all my own candles so for me to have this conviction was a big deal.  When learning about the toxicity that they pump into the air from being burned, it was a no-brainer.  Plus, I have since learned about all the wonderful attributes of aroma therapy with using essential oils.  You can even use your candle warmers with oils.  Just fill with your favorite carrier oil like coconut oil or olive oil and add a few drops of your essential oils.  Diffusers have too many health benefits not to use them.  Having clean air and receiving the healthy benefits is worth the switch.  I even have diffusers in my car!  They travel everywhere with me.

Again, this is a very short list of products to remove and the switch to healthier options is super convenient.  Every little bit will help and you will soon find your own balance of convictions in this area.  Our bodies are wonderfully and fearfully made.  Let us be good stewards of them.  They have a tough enough job just trying to filter all the environmental toxins out of our body.  Let’s not make them work harder than they have to.

Happy Switching!
