Toxic Liver

Toxic Liver

Is life worth living? It all depends on the liver.”
– William James

Think about your body as you would your car. What if you never changed your oil or filters in your car?  It’s the same thing with your body.  Your liver could be likened to the oil filter in your car.  What if it was never changed?  We all know the answer— the car would eventually die.  Why do we think we can go through life never cleansing our liver?

The liver is a prime place for the body to store toxins that can’t be excreted. Highly toxic chemicals can pass through the liver, including residues from pesticides and herbicides. And it doesn’t take a megadose of toxins or irritating substances to weaken the liver of some individuals. It can be damaged by a variety of chemicals, medications, alcohol, and viruses.

One of the most common medications known to destroy liver cells is acetaminophen (found in Tylenol™). Even when taken in recommended amounts, this drug can do great harm to the liver of some individuals. Fructose is another substance that can scar the liver.  Especially avoid high fructose corn syrup; it is not just a natural substance made from corn, as commercials would have us believe.  Also, agave syrup, which has been very popular as a natural sweetener, is very high in fructose.  It is not a good choice in sweeteners.

Alcoholics are known to have bad livers because alcohol is a powerful liver toxin. Over time, heavy drinkers can develop severe scarring of the liver and loss of cells. Chronic heavy drinkers with damaged, poorly functioning livers are also at high risk of liver cancer. This is a result of the chronic scarring, inflammation, and exposure to toxins. But it may not be only heavy drinking that causes problems for some people. Researchers have found even small amounts of alcohol can cause fatty deposits in the livers of susceptible individuals as can eating too many sweets.

As a consequence of our modern diet, many people have considerable congestion and even stones in their liver. This may be true even though a person has not had a history of gallstones. Stones in the liver are an impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness, and vitality. They are, indeed, one of the major reasons people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness or recovering from disease.

A congested liver is one reason people have high cholesterol, even though they may eat a  healthful diet and exercise regularly. Your liver creates more cholesterol that a normal diet contains. If you cut your cholesterol intake completely, your body would simply manufacture more. If you have high cholesterol, you may have a congested liver. As stones grow and congestion increases, the pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. It could be likened to your garden hose containing pebbles or small stones. Much less water would flow through it, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out water.  If you have liver stones or congestion, much less bile is “squirted out” and less cholesterol leaves the body, causing a rise in cholesterol.

Liver detoxing will help your liver become more efficient at performing all its functions, including making cholesterol and eliminating cholesterol. It’s one of the best things you can do to regain balance of your cholesterol   Taking a cholesterol-lowering drugs will not get to the root of the problem.

Liver congestion, toxicity, and stagnation are quite common, yet conventional medicine has no way to measure this.  Relying on blood tests for diagnostic purposes is inadequate. Most people who have a physical ailment have perfectly normal liver enzymes in the blood, despite suffering. Liver enzymes become elevated in the blood only when there is advanced liver cell destruction, as in hepatitis or liver inflammation. Liver cells contain large amounts of enzymes, and when they are ruptured, the enzymes enter the blood and signal liver abnormalities. By then, the damage has already occurred. It takes many years before such an event becomes apparent for most people. Therefore, cleansing the liver is an excellent preventative measure as well as being healing, restorative, and rejuvenating.  Want to look younger?  Do a liver cleanse.

It’s difficult to cleanse your liver if you have parasites in it. You won’t get out many stones or waste, and may feel sick. Embark on a parasite-killing program either before or during your liver cleanse.  If you get the Internal Cleanse Kit, you will get parasite cleanse products with it.

Make sure you complete the colon cleanse before cleansing the liver. (You will get a free Colon Cleanse Kit with the Internal Cleanse Kit.)

One of the Best Anti-agers—Getting Rid of Toxins

Doctors Mehmet Oz and Mike Roizen say, “Give your liver a break: We’ve long considered toxins — like pollutants in the air and chemical additives in processed foods — major agers, which is what we call things that make your body older faster. When you overload your body with toxins, your liver goes into overdrive trying to filter out the gunk. Over time, excess wear and tear on its filtering system accelerates aging.”

So what can you do about the toxins in your life? The doctors say, “Treat them the same way you treat toxic people (you know, the ones who drive you to eat that whole cheesecake): Avoid ’em whenever you can. When you can’t, help your liver dispose of the vandals.”1

  1. I ordered the total cleanse for my husband back in October 2015, I am ready to use myself for more reasons that one; would this still be good safe to use herbs still good? He only used a few packs of the colon cleanse. I was finishing up my 12 weeks on Harvoni during that time, feel was very harsh on my body. I feel like this …aged me. I would have no problem starting this tomorrow if you say this is still safe/good. Thanks
