Cleansing and Healing the Liver Through Nutrition (Recipes)

According to the scientists, we have not yet discovered the numerous functions the liver can perform for our body. We know that when the liver is sick, the well being of the entire organism is affected. Acne and skin irritations, allergies, inflammatory diseases, heart conditions or memory disorders can all be caused by a liver that is not able to filter the toxins and cleanse the blood properly.

Cleansing and Healing the Liver Through Nutrition (Recipes)

Cleansing and Healing the Liver – Diet

First of all, the liver can be affected by an improper diet and lifestyle: the consumption of toxic foods, eating late in the evening right before bedtime, rich meals, meals high in fats, fried dishes, alcohol, tobacco, lack of rest, stress, anger, prolonged physical effort etc.

Although the liver is extremely sensitive and prone to intoxication, this organ can be regenerated and healed if we offer it proper care and diet:

– Baked, boiled or raw vegetables and fruits (pumpkin, grapes, kiwi, ripe bananas, apples)

– Bitter medicinal herbs

– Nuts and seeds

– Dry fruits (raisins, prunes, apricots)
