Many of you have asked me for tips on how to “detox” your liver.
And there’s no wonder, since your liver is in charge of cleaning your blood of dangerous chemicals, among other benefits.
To keep your liver in tip-top shape, I’ve prepared for you a few health tips that I know you’ll enjoy!
But before we get into that, there are a few things I need to tell you.
If you were born between 1945 – 1965, the Centre for Disease and Control recommends you get tested for hepatitis C.
This disease can stay hidden in your body for years without symptoms and can cause a lot of harm on the long run.
You can ask your doctor for more information about this disease and if you were at risk of getting it.
Now, let’s see what tips I have in store for you!
6 Liver Healing Tips that Work
Enjoy Coffee More
It seems that drinking coffee regularly reduces your risk of getting liver disease.1 But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Caffeine has many incredible health benefits.
Watch Out for Toxins
Your liver is seriously threatened by certain deadly substances found in cleaning products, aerosol products and insecticides. Also, additives in cigarettes damage your liver, besides triggering cancer and inflammation in your body.2
Consume Healing Foods
Besides my weekly newsletter, you can also check my health blog for healing recipes. But, right now, I have a liver healing soup that I know you will enjoy:
- 8 whole dried shitake or reishi mushrooms

- Soak the mushrooms in one cup water.
- Bring the rice to the boil in 5 cups water, and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Cut each mushroom into three or more slices, and add to the rice, together with the soaking water; simmer for further 20 minutes.
- Add the carrots, and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat, and stir in the miso, parsley and coriander
- If you like ginger, add in about 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh grated.

We all know that alcohol isn’t healthy and after a certain age is not recommended.
Drinking alcohol can damage your liver’s cell, which can lead to scarring and swelling which can end in cirrhosis. It’s not only deadly, but very painful.
So, try as much as you can to eliminate alcohol from your life.3
Are you taking too many painkillers?
Certain medication can cause a lot of damage to your liver.
Have you ever checked the side effect list of the medication you are currently taking?
Tylenol, for example, is very dangerous for your liver.
You might want to discuss with your doctor for alternatives if you want to keep your liver safe.4
Last but not least, regular exercise is vital for a healthy body and mind.
Without it, you are more at risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases, weight gain, depression, etc.
