Your health relies very much on how well your body is ridding itself of toxins. The problem is that at the rate our bodies rid themselves, we tend to pound more things into them to make them work harder. With the increase of processed foods in our everyday lives, our liver is working on overdrive to try and filter out all the toxins that make it into our diets. Equally, binge drinking is a phenomenon which has increased dramatically over the last few years, showing that our rate of alcohol abuse has grown. When we abuse alcohol, we abuse our livers.
You know when your liver needs detoxing, because your abdominal area looks bloated from liquid retention and you will experience congested sinuses. Moreover, the skin will get pimples and maybe become red in appearance and itchy. When the liver needs detoxing, you can experience moodiness and food cravings as the blood sugar levels are going haywire, and you may experience fatigue. You will also notice that your urine is quite dark, you bruise easily, and you find it hard to lose weight.
Don’t worry because this can be remedied. The liver works fantastically at repairing itself and giving it a good detox will allow your liver to return to its normal state.

Supplements like ‘GarciniaX’ are high in potassium, which is great for the liver. Turmeric, the wonder spice, is great for helping with liver metabolism and the growth of healthy tissue in the liver.
Give yourself a coffee enema. Although this may sound a little disgusting, it will help the liver considerably, while also helping with constipation and fatigue, and helps prevent and cure cancer.
