Hardly a day goes by without the subject of liver flushing popping up. Either someone needs to do the incurables program for a major issue or their program was working very well but has stalled and they want to know why. A good understanding of flushing the liver is important for anyone wanting to hold onto or regain their health. The liver is the vacuum of the body. No infection, disease or condition is healed or cleared from the body without the aid of the liver. The Liver is the more important detoxing organ in the body.
Backed Up Liver Needs to Be Flushed
Many members start a program to heal an issue and are thrilled during the first few weeks to see their symptoms disappearing and their energy rebounding. Then about a month or two into their healing or rebuilding programs they begin slipping backwards. I get a call or email asking for help because the herbs are no longer working. Since I know the herbs do not stop having the nutrients needed to heal the body the real question is what has stopped working. The answer most often is, the Liver is full and needs a bit of attention. A nice week of liver flushing and the program is back on track.
Liver Flush Once A Month
When doing a good healing program of any kind it would be advisable to flush the liver at least once a month if not more often. While clearing an infection or some other system wide issue it might be necessary to do an ELF every week. Flushing the liver is a safe simple way of supporting this important filter to work more effectively as it clears the issues from your body. I have personally seen stubborn knee pain cleared by a week of juice fasting and liver flushing. Anyone choosing to eat unprocessed natural foods can expect to feel better. The body is being nourished and supported with the needed nutrients for building healthy flesh and blood.
So why do so many feel so bad when they first begin to clean up their food program?
Several reasons factor in. The first place to check out is the bowels. Make sure this important organ is open and working well before beginning any healing program or cleanse. A healing crisis can be triggered by something as simple as adding a glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice to your food program. The body receives a healthy dose of alkaline rich food and will not need permission to begin cleaning house. A good example of this would be to throw soapy water on a dirty floor. The water will immediately cut the filth and absorb all it can carry away. The moment the clean soapy water touches the floor it begins dissolving curd and breaking down the grim.
Alkaline; the Body’s de-grimer
This is how alkaline nutrition works in the body. All fresh, unprocessed, uncooked foods are alkaline rich. Toss fresh juice into a toxic system and watch the waste rise to the surface. Sometimes the reaction will be so strong the drink will come right back up. This is because the system is backed up and the waste being released cannot find an open door through the normal channel so all the toxins suddenly released into the stomach must go somewhere. Don’t be deterred, get the bowels moving well and the body will be able to process the waste out normally.
Immune Boosting with Echinacea
Boosting the immune system is another important part of any healing or building program. There must be enough immune cells to attach and neutralize each piece of waste, toxins ect… flushed out. If the immune system is unable to neutralize the waste then it will be reabsorbed back into the organs and tissue it was drawn from. When the toxins are reabsorbed the body will begin to feel toxic and sick. The saying “run over by a mac truck” comes to mind. The head can ache, muscle and joint pain, nausea, loose bowels, mental confusion, depression ect…This is the healing crisis.
The best way to begin any new health building program is to start at the beginning. The three Foundational Programs are for everyone. 1) Bowel Cleansing; 2) Immune Boosting with Echinacea; 3) Superfood & Fresh Juices.
Once these programs are established the sky is the limit. You can begin the health building programs without fear of “the healing crisis” normally expected during the first few days of any good program.
