The Correct Way to Detox
Max Gerson claims, in A Cancer Therapy, that for a cancer therapy to be successful, it must fulfill two fundamental components:
The first component is the detoxication of the whole body which has to be carried out over a long period of time, until all the tumors are absorbed and the essential organs of the body are so far restored that they can take over this important “cleaning function” by themselves. . . . Secondly, the entire intestinal tract has to be restored simultaneously; with the restoration of the intestinal tract, the most important secretory functions will be repaired, as well as its circulation and motility regulated by the visceral nervous system. . . . Immunity does not mean here that the body is protected against a special bacterium; as in an infectious disease, it means that no abnormal cell can grow or develop in the body with normal metabolism. For that purpose, the degree of restoration of the liver plays a decisive role. (more…)
Liver support and cleansing are popular topics in alternative medicine. Liver support is perhaps one of the most widely employed therapeutic options in standard-of-care naturopathic medicine. It would seem that treating the liver is an integral step in the journey from disease to wellness for a huge range of medical complaints to the naturopathic physician. Liver cleansing has a rich historical background based in eclectic medicine and provides a foundation on which general health restoration may be founded. Despite this, liver cleansing remains a little-researched area of modern medicine. Scientific study of botanical medicines and a handful of nutraceuticals have provided sound evidence of liver condition-specific efficacy, yet no studies exist in which liver cleansing as a whole has been explored. The therapeutic success of liver cleansing at this time is mainly anecdotal; to bring this therapy into greater focus requires a case series or clinical study. What we do have is an increasingly growing field of research that is defining how liver-specific nutrients work as protective and restorative medicine. (more…)
“What will you experience during a liver gallbladder cleanse?
Usually the first cleanse will purge over 100 liverstones and/or gallstones from the liver and gallbladder respectively. These stones can range in size from very tiny sand-like granules to the diameter of a quarter. The stones will most likely be mixed in with your fecal matter and may be difficult to distinguish.
Of course, many other types of toxic material trapped in the liver, gallbladder, and intestines can exit the body and may be more difficult to identify.” (more…)
Modern society has created a sad state for our over-processed livers. Anytime we overeat or eat processed or fried foods, and, anytime we are exposed to environmental pollutants or stress, the liver becomes overworked and overloaded.
When the liver is taxed, it can’t process toxins and fat in an efficient way. There are many foods that can help cleanse the liver naturally by stimulating the natural ability to clean toxic waste from the body.

For a tasty and healthy beverage, why not steep these various ingredients into warm and soothing herbal teas.
Cleansing Herbal Teas
Choose from as many of these dried herbs as possible to make into a dried blend:
Pau d’Arco inner bark
| Ginger root
Uva Ursi leaves
For every 2½ cups of pure water, use 1 Tbsp of your chosen herb. This provides a medium-strength beverage and 2 Tbsps of the herb will yield a stronger-flavored beverage. You can use one herb or a combination of any of these for your own unique brew.
Let the herbal mix sit in the water overnight. The next morning, heat the mixture to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain the tea and save the herbs. Allow the liquid to cool slightly before sipping. If you prefer a sweeter tea, add stevia, agave nectar or grade B maple syrup.
Now put the used herbs back into the pot and add 1 Tbsp of fresh herbs for every 2½ cups of water. Let the herbal mix sit overnight and repeat the whole process again. Keep adding new herbs to old ones for three days, then discard all of the herbs and start over.t
