Spring Clean Your Liver!

It's time to cleanse your liver and get rid of all the built up toxins and impurities!  I was referred to this cleanse by my wonderful Aunt Angela (who is an expert with essential oils and natural healing) and it is easy as cake to do.

First of all, why cleanse your liver you say?

The liver is in fact the second largest organ in the body.  It filters 1.4 liters or 3 pints of blood per minute.  It has over 300 functions in the body including: detoxification of pollutants and chemicals in the body, responsible for metabolism of fat, protein, and carbs, stores fat soluble vitamins, the supreme organ of metabolism, creates bile, helps maintain electrolyte and fluid balance, and is a blood purifier (just to name a few).
Here are some common symptoms of poor liver function:

  • Abdominal bloating and swelling
  •  Allergies (especially sudden or later in life onset)
  •  Anxiety, frustration, inability to function harmoniously with those around you
  •  Asthma
  •  Bad breath in the morning and tongue is coated
  •  Cellulite
  •  Chemical and environmental sensitivities
  •  Chronic fatigue
  •  Colds and flues (the liver is responsible for immune function)
  •  Concentration and memory problems
  •  Constipation
  •  Depression
  •  Difficulty losing weight
  •  Digestive problems
  •  Dizziness
  •  Drowsiness after eating
  •  Elevated cholesterol
  •  Fatigue
  •  Feeling tired after eating
  •  Flatulence
  •  Foggy brain
  •  Gall stones
  •  Gallbladder disease
  •  Headaches
  •  Heart palpitations
  •  High blood pressure
  •  Hives, rashes
  •  Hormonal imbalances
  •  Hyperglycemia (low blood sugar), also indicates a yeast or Candida problem
  •  If the liver has to work harder than normal you will experience an increase in body temperature.
  •  Immune system dysfunction or disorders
  •  Inability to handle fats without feeling nauseated or belching
  •  Indigestion
  •  Irritability
  •  Irritable bowel syndrome (where the bowel actions are irregular varying from diarrhea to constipation during a 24 hour period)
  •  Jaundice
  •  Kidney stones
  •  Lack of harmonious flow of vital energies in your body—one minute you’re bouncing off the walls, the next you’re depressed and lethargic
  •  Mood swings-especially involving depression and anger
  •  Nausea (esp. after eating fatty foods)
  •  Night sweats (not hot flashes, night sweats)
  •  Obesity
  •  PMS as well as excessive menstrual flow containing many clots of blood
  •  Poor concentration and memory
  •  Poor digestion
  •  Rapid pulse
  •  Weak tendons, ligaments, and muscles
  •  Weight gain especially around the abdomen
  •  And even more

There are 3 recipes for the essential oil liver cleanse.  These recipes are only for essential oils that are 100% pure essential oils and that are safe for internal use (like doTERRA oils).

Basic Recipe:

1 drop Peppermint essential oil
1 teaspoon – 1 Tablespoon (or more) Lemon Juice
Each morning as you rise before you eat or drink anything, 20 minutes before eating.
