Every single person today has a liver that needs proper care. Your liver plays a fundamental and critical role in your health and in what your health will look like in 20 years, even if you don’t suffer with any symptoms or illnesses right now or you’ve been told your liver is in good working order. There’s more to understand about your what’s really happening inside the livers of everyone today and what your liver needs from you to protect your health in the years to come.

The liver is responsible for more than 2,000 chemical functions in the body (though science and research only believe it’s responsible for about 500). This highly intelligent, special organ works so hard for you, day in and day out. But your liver needs your help in order to do its many jobs, which ultimately keep you alive. Your liver needs the right foods, herbs and supplements to cleanse, detoxify and heal. And, very importantly, you need to know what not to do so you don’t make your liver’s job even harder.

How Your Liver
Works for You

In order to care for the liver, it’s important to understand how it works.
There’s a highway of blood called the hepatic portal vein that rushes from your
gastrointestinal tract into your liver. This blood vessel brings vitamins,
minerals, nutrients, hormones, oxygen, hydration and, unfortunately,
troublemakers too.

They’re
hundreds of different toxins, pollutants, and pathogens like pesticides,
herbicides, fungicides, prescription drugs, aluminum, lead, copper, mercury,
viruses, bacteria and more. These are the toxins we’re surrounded by in our
modern world and that we are even born into this world with (not because of
genetics but because they are passed down from generation to generation through
the family line). They’re what makes us sick. They’re what cause disease and
chronic illness, including the conditions believed to be autoimmune diseases.

In order to care for the liver, it’s important to understand how
it works. There’s a highway of blood called the hepatic portal vein that rushes
from your
The liver is a
master at sorting out the good and the bad. It takes the good stuff—the
nutrients and other helpful natural compounds—and puts them where they need to
be used in the liver. Your liver is incredibly smart. It knows all about the
compounds that are in a food as well as how to store or distribute those
elements.

Take the
example of an apple. This incredible piece of fruit contains a living water
that’s hydrating and nourishing for your liver and your entire body. The liver
can take the special living water from that apple, compress it and store it
until it needs to be used at a later date. Then when your body needs those
elements or you are dehydrated, your liver can reactivate and rehydrate that
living water and send it out into your bloodstream. This is all undiscovered
information that medical science and research are unaware of. I want you to
know how truly miraculous your liver is so you can take proper care of it. I
explain exactly how to do this in
Liver Rescue.

The liver’s ability to orchestrate everything that comes in from
that hepatic portal vein keeps you in balance, and it keeps your body
functioning. It’s not known the science and research yet, but your liver also
has its very own immune system to help protect itself and in doing so protect
you. I have a chapter in
Liver Rescue on your liver’s
immune system with a full explanation of how it works for you.

Your liver also identifies the liver troublemakers and works to
neutralize and detoxify them. Neutralizing is a process where the liver makes
the toxin less harmful, so that if the toxin travels through the bloodstream
and especially to the heart and brain, it won’t cause major problems.

The liver also holds onto some of the worst offenders and locks
them away deep inside itself. It really doesn’t want certain toxins floating
around your body and making their way to your heart or brain—these
troublemakers are too dangerous. So they get stored away in deep pockets of the
organ.

But we need our livers to be healthy in order to do all of this
well. If the liver is too overwhelmed by toxins and poor food choices (now or
in the past), and if it’s become sluggish or fatty or weak, it can’t do its job
properly. And your health begins to suffer or worsen even more. Even if you
don’t have any symptoms or conditions right now, it doesn’t mean they are not
in the process of developing internally. As I shared before, nine out of ten
people have a sluggish liver and soon enough it will be ten out of ten people
for all the reasons I share in
Liver Rescue, so it’s essential
that everyone knows what their liver needs and how to curb and heal the
symptoms and conditions that can result.

Cleaning House For a
Fresh Start

It takes the right kind of cleanse to help flush out the toxins from your
liver, and in doing so to lighten the liver’s load. In
Liver Rescue I share the Liver
Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse, which is specifically designed to work with your liver;
not against it. This Cleanse is a gentle and safe way to pull out the toxins
that are burdening your liver so it can effectively eliminate existing or
incoming troublemakers—viruses, bacteria, chemicals and metals—before they make
you sick.  You can repeat the cleanse as many times and as often as you’d
like.

The Liver
Rescue Morning I also share is an incredibly healing practice to bring into
your life daily or as often as possible, also. Along with the different healing
foods and supplements (with the suggested dosages I include in
Liver Rescue)
to help your liver heal and strengthen.

It’s important
to know that there are many different programs, cleanses, practices, flushes,
and diets out there that are popular or said to help your liver. Unfortunately,
almost all of them do not help the liver or are even harmful to it. It’s vital
you know the truth about what the liver really needs from you and how to safely
and effectively cleanse and support it.  

What your liver needs to be healthy is oxygen, water, sugar and
mineral salts. These elements, along with nutrients from fruits and vegetables,
are what the organ craves. Interestingly, the liver can only take in the
nutrients when they’re surrounded by sugar (glucose). Of course, I’m not
talking about table sugar or corn syrup, I’m talking about the natural health-giving
sugars in fruits, tomatoes, potatoes and squash.

People who are on no-fruit or low-carbohydrate diets are
unknowingly starving their livers and doing themselves a real disservice. If a
nutrient comes in but it isn’t bound by a sugar, your liver will let it roll on
by. Sugar allows the liver to take in the nutrient. Sugar is the fuel that
helps your liver break down fat too. This may surprise you given how popular
and trendy high fat and high protein and low carb diets (whether they are plant
based or animal based) are today. While these diets have some benefits in the
respect that they take our processed and junk foods, these diets are still
problematic. I have a whole chapter on this topic in
Liver Rescue because it’s so
critical to understand so you know how to take care of your health.

Your liver
also needs natural sugars to keep cool. The liver is a naturally hot organ, but
toxins and high protein, high fat diets make it hot in a toxic way. Glucose
from fruits and carbohydrate-rich vegetables help it cool.

Your Liver’s
Neighbor: The Gallbladder

The hot liver
shoots a sludge of gunk, toxins, poisons and chemicals, along with cholesterol
and bilirubin, into the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a naturally cooler
organ, and its temperature is linked with the temperature of the liver. The
hotter the liver gets, the cooler the gallbladder needs to get. When a too-hot
liver leads to a very cool gallbladder, people experience symptoms like hot
flashes and night sweats. These issues stem from the dynamic between the liver
and the gallbladder.

People who are on no-fruit or low-carbohydrate diets are
unknowingly starving their livers and doing themselves a real disservice. If a
nutrient comes in but it
When the hot
gunk cools in the gallbladder, stones form. That’s how people get gallbladder
stones. In
Liver Rescue I talk about the foods that dissolve those
stones and clear the toxins too.

Foods To Support
Your Liver

Now that you
know more about how the liver works, I want to share a few of the top foods,
herbs and supplements that will help you cleanse, heal and take care of it.

Apples provide
an active living water that hydrates the liver and supports the liver’s ability
to hydrate your body. Apples also starve bacteria, yeast and mold out of the
intestinal tract and liver. In doing so they keep sludge out of the
gallbladder. Apples can also dissolve gallstones. Eat one to three apples a day
(or more) if you can.

Artichokes contain phytochemical compounds
that inhibit the development of tumors and cysts in the liver. Artichokes also
contain many chemical functions that help the liver neutralize toxins before
they get to the brain or heart. They help the liver screen and filter your
blood.

Asparagus is high in flavonoids and
powerful anti-inflammatory compounds—they’re like a natural aspirin. They also
expel and dislodge fat cells and other poisons. Asparagus cleanses, detoxifies
and soothes the liver.

Bananas are
antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. The fructose in bananas provides a
quick fuel for the liver—it’s one of the organ’s favorite food sources. Bananas
also sooth the lining of the intestinal tract.

Berries are a
rich medicine chest for the liver. Your liver contains a type of cell known as
Kupffer cells, and wild blueberries especially contain the kinds of
antioxidants those kuppfer cells need. Raspberries, blackberries and
blueberries are all powerful healing foods for your liver.

Brussels sprouts are an ultimate liver cleansing
food. You can eat them raw, steam them or even juice them. Brussels sprouts and
other cruciferous vegetables have a special sulfur that expels poisons and
pathogens from your liver.

Celery contains
undiscovered subgroups of sodium that I call cluster salts. These cluster salts
protect liver cell membranes. They strip the cells of viruses down and bind
onto free floating poisons. Drinking sixteen ounces of pure celery juice with
nothing added on an empty stomach every morning is a powerful way to cleanse
your liver.

Cilantro binds onto heavy metals so you
can safely eliminate them from your liver and body. Cilantro also contains
phytochemical compounds that cling to other troublemakers, such as neurotoxins
and dermatoxins, which end up in our livers. Cilantro is another liver
cleanser.

Cranberries do
many jobs for the liver. They cleanse the deep parts of the liver. The harsh
fruit acid in cranberries kills pathogens. They also have a tremendous amount
of vitamin C that steps the oxidation of cells.

Cucumbers are an
ally for the liver. They provide a hydrating liver water just like apples.
Cucumbers also cleanse the liver.

Dandelion greens
trigger a squeezing action in the liver that helps it release toxins.

Melons are an incredibly powerful
cleansing food that also have the ability to hydrate the liver. It’s ideal to
have melons early in the day and not after eating something heavy.

Peaches remove
old deep-seated poisons, debris and putrefied food in your small intestinal
tract, which helps your liver get better.

Oranges and tangerines provide a wealth of calcium
and vitamin C that the liver can use since it’s combined with the glucose in
the fruit.  

Pitaya, which is
also called dragon fruit is a liver rejuvenator. It cleanses poisons from the
organ. You can often find this red-fleshed food in the freezer department.

Raw honey contains a combination of the
sugars that the liver needs along with the minerals, vitamins and nutrients
that restore the liver.

Spinach has
mineral salts and nutrients that help the liver. It also helps the liver
receive vitamin B12 better.

Tomatoes harness
critical phytochemicals, micronutrients, vitamins and minerals that support the
liver. The fruit acid in a tomato also helps the gallbladder eliminate some of
the sludge that can sit in the bottom of the gallbladder. They also dissolve
gallstones.

Lemons and limes improve hydrochloric acid (HCL) production in the stomach.
They also cleanse fatty livers and help dissolve gallstones.

Wild blueberries have pigments that reverse
damage to the liver.

There’s also
specific supplements that are helpful for the liver to heal, cleanse and
strengthen.

Supplements
for the Liver

When it comes to supplements there’s a huge range in quality and they’re not
all created equal. I have listed the brands I like on my preferred supplements page on my website to
help you source the highest quality products.

Here’s a few of the supplements that support the liver with some
of the ways they help.

5-MTHF
helps the liver receive B12.

Ashwagandha
is good for the liver and it strengthens the adrenal glands.

Barley grass juice
powder
contains phytonutrients that feed an undernourished
liver while allowing it to detoxify

B12 with
adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin
is critical for your
liver and almost everyone is deficient in it. Even when blood tests show B12
levels are normal, you can still be deficient.

Burdock root
is very medicinal for the liver and it purges it on a deep level. You can find
burdock root in the grocery store and consider juicing it or making a tea with
it.

Cat’s claw
kills off pathogens and viruses that are in the liver.

CoQ10
is a great antioxidant for the liver.

Goldenseal kills
pathogens, including strep

Hibiscus
contains antisine compounds, which is what gives it the red color, which helps
bring the liver back to life.  

Lemon balm
kills pathogens and bacteria. It also calms the liver and the nerves, so that
your liver can relax enough to be cleansed.
Licorice root
tea.

Spirulina
pulls out toxic heavy metals that sit inside the liver and create a wealth of
issues.

Vitamin C
strengthens all levels of the liver’s personalized immune system. The liver
uses vitamin C in all of its over 2,000 chemical functions.

Zinc
plays a critical role in all 2,000 of the liver’s chemical functions.
