THE ART OF THE LIVER TONIC
In this class we will discuss the function of the liver as the director of the digestive
system. If your liver is bogged down with toxins it can not clean your blood. If your
blood is not clean, parasites and fungus have the ability to take control of your
immune system and compromise the health of your entire body. Secondly, toxins in the
blood can lead to anemia and candida infections system-wide.
If you talk to radiologists and gastroenterologist who are looking at people’s livers
today, they will tell you that the condition called “Fatty Liver” affects more than
50% of people over the age of 50. Common causes are poor diet (high in cooked
fats), excessive alcohol intake, adverse reactions to pharmaceutical drugs and toxic
The liver has many functions in your body, it stores vitamins, minerals and sugars for
fuel, and flushes the toxins out of your body. Degeneration of the liver can be prolonged
by environmental stress, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, tobacco, pollutants, food additives,
pesticides, cosmetics, common household products, pharmaceutical and over-the-
counter drugs (including oral contraceptives and caffeine), building materials, artist’s
materials, and garden chemicals are all but few things that can kill liver cells.
Healing Foods for the liver may include: carrots, beets, garlic, tomatoes, Brazil nuts,
cayenne, ginseng, melons, peppers, papaya, lemon, lemon, walnuts (arginine),
green leafy veggies, green teas, flax seed oil, turmeric, dandelion, wheat grass, raw
honey, and licorice.
Loving Your Liver
1.What you eat has a clear affect on your bloods cellular defense system – which
includes the liver, the vascular and the lymphatic systems. Caring for the liver with
foods that support blood cleansing is vital to maintain strong immune health and
detoxing the liver.
2.Hydro-colon therapy and liver cleansing go hand-in-hand. When you evacuate the
colon it sends a signal to the liver to release toxins from the blood stream that it has
collected and stored. Often, osmosis takes place through the colon walls releasing
stuck toxins into the blood stream. This means microscope parasites, old food matter,
heavy metals, chemicals, and fungus can find its way into the blood steam. Hence, it
is important for the liver to function optimally in order to filter these harmful agents
out of the blood and eliminate them from the body.
3.Aid the liver in releasing stored toxins by providing it with the phyto-chemicals
found in bitter leafy greens, mono-cot grasses, herbal teas, red fruits, molasses, whole
grains, clove, cinnamon and honey.
4.Bitter foods and teas are healing/detoxing agents for the liver. So often we are
drawn to sweet foods rather then bitter foods – when in fact, sweet foods are very
difficult for the liver and the pancreas to process.
5.The liver does not like sugar, chocolate or caffeine these items are stimulants that
throw the liver in to a state of temporary emergency causing it to become sluggish
over time. The liver does enjoy small amounts of black molasses and raw honey – both
of which aid it in its regeneration.
6.Alcohol, pain killers, anti-biotics, and anti depressants, are particularly rough on the liver. These
toxins solidify in the gall bladder as stones and as biliary sludge which impedes the natural process of digestion.
How Do I Cleanse the Liver with Living Foods?
We recommend you sip the following Herbal Teas before bed and through out the day
as an Earthly Infusion. Ginger, Nettle Tea, Licorice, Dandelion Tea, Milk Thistle Tea,
Slipper Elm, and Yarrow Root.
*Do not do this on a regular basis – medicinal herbs if over used can become toxic to
the body. Do a few days of teas and then stop for a week or so. These items can also
be found as tinctures that can be added 2 to 3 times a day to water with a splash of
For edible gentle Liver Cleansing we invite you to include bitter greens, dark red
vitamin c rich veggies/fruits and cultured vegetables from the cabbage family into
your smoothies, juices, salads, and side dishes.
Bitter Greens – mustard greens, collards,arugula, kale, dandelion, cilantro, parsley,
wheat grass, frieze lettuce.
* It is important to not only juice but, eat green veggies in the bitter family because
they are loaded with cellulose that will sweep the intestines of leftover debris. When
greens are juiced they should be paired with citrus which is high in Vitamin C – which
is needed for chlorophyll absorption.
Sour Red fruits/Veggies: lemons, limes, oranges, green apples, beats, pomegranates,
carrots, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and tomatoes.
* Sour foods are good for the liver because they are alkaline generating agents in
the body. The liver produces bile – an alkaline substance that is necessary for proper
Cultured Vegetables from the cabbage family: kim-chi, sour-kraut, pickles,*Cultured
vegetables are helpful to the liver because they are pre-biotic and act as the food for
anaerobic bacteria that live through out the digestive system.
Protein and Complex-Carbohydrates:Soaked Nuts and Seeds,Fish, Brown rice and
legumes, Hemp Protein Powder, and Raw Chia Seed.
Living Fats: Cold pressed olive oil, flax oil, raw coconut oil, borage oil, sunflower oil,
soaked nuts and seeds. *Raw fats are especially important to the health of the liver.
Cooked fats are carcinogenic to the body and remain trapped in the blood stream.
