Cleansing your liver is truly one of the keys to staying youthful into your old age. When your body is detoxified, your cells can maintain all the functions in the body they must perform.
When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing how your cells can literally keep working for 90, 100 or even 110 years. All you have to do is give them what they need (nutrients) and keep the toxins out of the cells.
You’ve probably already heard about the concept of cleansing your liver. Here are some basic facts, just for a few quick reminders:
- If you’re constipated, it makes no sense to start cleansing your liver. Your liver is an internal organ with no route to the outside. Thus, if your colon is clogged, a backup of the toxins will occur. Trying to cleanse the liver at this time will only create detox symptoms such as headaches, skin bumps and acne, fatigue, muscle aches and pains, and the feeling that you aren’t well.
- Drink more water when you are cleansing any organ. Ultimately, you want one ounce of water for every pound of body weight when you are seriously detoxifying your body. However, drinking one ounce of water for every two pounds of body weight is acceptable.
