Purification: Step 3 - Liver Cleanse

Updated: May 14, 2020

The liver is your largest internal organ, and it’s responsible for an astonishing variety of life-sustaining and health-promoting tasks.  Integral to countless metabolic processes, the liver supports the digestive system, controls blood sugar and regulates fat storage.  It stores and mobilizes energy, and produces more proteins than any other organ in the body.  It also regulates your blood flow.

7. Step 7: Candida Cleanse Protocol

One of your liver’s most important functions is chemically breaking down everything that enters your body, from the healthiest bite of organic food to the toxins that you breathe in, absorb through your skin, and eat or drink in foods, medicine etc.

When the liver is clogged and overwhelmed with toxins, it can’t do a very effective job of processing nutrients and fats. 

The more toxic your body becomes, the more difficulty you’ll have staying healthy or losing weight.

The liver's filters remove a wide range of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites from the bloodstream, which is highly desirable, as we certainly do not want these dangerous things building up in the blood and invading the deeper parts of the body. 

That is why it is ESSENTIAL to do a Liver Cleanse BEFORE & AFTER you do a Parasite Cleanse and BEFORE you do the Candida Cleanse.

NB You want your kidneys, bladder, urinary tract & Liver in TOP working condition so they can efficiently remove any undesirable toxins & died-of parasites BEFORE you do the Parasite Cleanse or Candida Cleanse Routines. 

Too aggressive a detoxification program can lead to massive release of internal toxins that the body is unable to excrete on a timely basis. 

A liver in detoxification that is too intense may result in ill effects and negative results. This can lead to a variety of unpleasant side effects.

Your adrenal glands (adrenals) are two thumb-sized organs that sit above your kidneys and are part of the endocrine system. Also known as the suprarenal glands, they’re involved in producing over 50 hormones that drive almost every bodily function, many of which are essential for life.

The adrenal glands work closely with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland in a system known as the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis).Normally, the adrenal glands release cortisol on a diurnal rhythm, referring to the process of boosts of cortisol throughout the day that help wakes us up, with a decline in this hormone level in the evening to aid the body in sleep. Adrenal fatigue is a condition where your body and adrenal glands can’t keep up.

     When the adrenal glands stop producing hormones efficiently Every bodily function is affected, and as adrenal hormone levels ebb and flow abnormally, even the normal “get-up-and-go” you get from them disappears.

Foods you eat are your first line of defense against Adrenal Fatigue.

-  Add wheatgrass (available in either juice or powder form) or barley grass/leaf (available primarily in powder and capsule form) to freshly juiced fruits or vegetables.

Eat at the Right Times

You can AVOID Adrenal Fatigue. DON't Skip breakfast, eat light lunch and then a small meal in the evening ! Avoid anything that taxes your Adrenals -   Coffee/ Caffeine, Green Tea etc-   Physical & Emotional Stress-   Processed and microwaved foods-   Hydrogenated oils: Vegetable oils like soybean, canola and corn oil are highly inflammatory and can lead to adrenal inflammation.

Stay Well Hydrated
#SuperFoods for the Adrenals
There is also a small group of foods that can actually help you to recover more quickly from Adrenal Fatigue.
- Seaweed Kelp
- Cruciferous vegetables
- Coconut OIl & Coconut Milk
- Olives
- Avocado

Adrenal- Supporting Supplements & Herbs- Lavender Essential Oils- Rosemary- Liquorice Root- Adaptogenic herbs ashwagandha, rhodiola rosea, schisandra and holy basil.

Pregnant women and those with heart, liver or kidney problems should avoid Liquorice Root. Do NOT take Liquorice Root. for more than four weeks at a time.

1.  Herbal Bitters

Bitter medicines are beloved by herbalists. The bitter taste stimulates digestive processes, including the liver's production of bile.  Bile, part digestive juice, part waste product, is made by the liver and excreted via the bowel. Herbal bitters are also known as Swedish Bitters.

2.  Lemon & Ginger Tea

The juice of half a lemon in warm water first thing in the morning is a time-honoured way to start the day, and is an excellent wake up call for the liver. The sourness of lemons triggers nerve and hormone activation to the liver and digestive system. 

You can add some Manuka Honey to soothe the stomach and fresh Peppermint Leaves to stimulate the digestive system.

3.  Turmeric

The spice that colours curries yellow, and was also used to dye the robes of Hindu priests.  Turmeric has impressive anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body, including the liver. Excellent for a liver virus or infection.

4.  Dandelion Root / Tea

A long history of healing ailing livers.

Dandelion root coffee is black and bitter, making it an excellent coffee alternative if you are keen on improving liver health.  

Natural herbs like burdock and dandelion root are all said to help rid the body of toxins while protecting liver cells and promoting healthy liver function.

Drink natural fruit/ veggie smoothies.  Fruits like strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries all enhance the health of the liver. These fruits have organic acids that lower sugar blood levels, and will help you to burn fat, decreasing your chances of fatty liver diseases.

5.  Milk Thistle/  St. Mary's Thistle St. Mary's Thistle a protects liver cells from damage and serves to regenerate already damaged liver cells.

Milk thistle promotes the growth and health of liver cells. Milk thistle contains silymarins, which are antioxidants that fight oxidation, a process that damages liver cells.

It also enhances protein synthesis in the liver.

Awesome Liver Detox Recipes

Drink Lots of Water

Detoxify your liver and flush toxins out by drinking at least 1 liter of water every day. Please consult with your physician before partaking on any sort of cleanse to make sure this treatment is right for you.

The liver Purification protocol will occur in 2 phases:

During phase 1, the liver takes toxins and convert them into less harmful toxins through either oxidation, reduction or hydrolysis. 

      The liver makes something that was once very toxic into something that is less toxic through a chemical reaction. This process creates other toxic by-products that need to be neutralized through the ingestion of anti-oxidants and in phase 2 detox.

During phase two the liver attaches a buffer molecule to the toxin which makes it less toxic still.  The toxins can now be processed so that it becomes water-soluble so that the body can easily excrete it through the urine. Most toxins begin their journey in a fat soluble state which is very hard for the body to excrete.

Both phase 1 & phase 2 of the Liver Cleanse must be working optimally and in tandem for safe Purification & Detoxification to happen. 

If you are not eating adequate nutrients, if either of the phases is working at a faster pace than the other phase or if you are over loading your system with toxins, you may run into troubles.

Before you begin any Cleanse Program, it’s essential that you prepare your body by strengthening your liver and colon for the work ahead. If you don’t do this, you might end up more bloated, constipated and “toxic” than you were before.

    Liver Detoxing & Fasting will release toxins that are lodged in your fat cells & shuttles them into your bloodstream for filtration & transport through your body’s elimination channels. 

    Without prior liver and colon support to help these toxins clear your system, the toxins, parasites / fungi may simply get relocated within the body, settling into any number of sensitive organs and making you feel tired, anxious, headache and more fatigued than when you started. So if you want to avoid feeling unnecessarily lousy, and if you want to maximize weight loss, follow this simple, six-step program for seven days before you embark on the one-day, liver-flushing juice fast:

1. EACH day, for 7 days, choose at least ONE serving from each group of the following Liver-Loving Foods:

• Crucifers: Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprout’s , Broccoli, Broccoli sprouts

• Green leafy Vegetables & Herbs: Parsley, Watercress, Cilantro, Beet Greens, Dandelion greens

• Citrus: Oranges, Lemons & Limes ( remember again to avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice, which contain a compound called naringen that can interfere with the liver-cleansing process)

• Sulfur-rich foods: Garlic, Onions, Radish

• Liver healers: Asparagus, Beets, Celery, Dandelion-root Tea.

2. EACH day, choose at least TWO of the following Colon-Caring foods: powdered Psyllium husks, Carrots, Apples, Pears or Berries.

3. EACH day, drink 1/2 your body weight of filtered or purified water.

4. EACH day, make sure you have at least ONE serving of protein in the form of at least 2 tablespoons of a high-quality Blue-Green Algae or Spirulina.

5. EACH day, make sure you have 1/2 tablespoon of oil in the form of Olive oil, Coconut oil or Hemp Oil.

6.    Prepare the  Liver Detox & Gallbladder Cleansing #Potassium Broth.


• Dietary fats

• Any form of Sugar ( including honey and maple syrup )

• Artificial sweeteners, additives, preservatives, colourants etc

• Refined carbohydrates, including white rice and products made from white flour

• Gluten

• Soy protein

• Alcohol, over-the-counter drugs and caffeine 

The Liver #Purification Cleanse is designed to flush impurities from your liver and other cellular tissues while supporting your general health and energy.

      While I do not advocate water fasts, or even long-term juice fasts, personal experience and many years of thorough research have convinced me that short-term juice fasting can be beneficial and healthy to the body . . . .  the kind that is fully supported by adequate nutritional preparation for the liver and sufficient fiber for the colon.        By reducing the amount of work your digestive system has to do, you free up a great deal of energy for healing and regeneration. 

Basic protocol you should follow for 7 - 14 Days Juice Fast Purification:

Make sure you have completed the Seven-Day Prequel. 

-   Alternate drinking 1 glass of filtered/ purified water and 1 glass of Miracle Juice during the day.  -  Drink at least 4 - 6 glasses of filtered/ purified water throughout the day, in addition to the 4 - 6 glasses of Miracle Juice.  Total of NO LESS than 8-10 glasses in TOTAL per day. -   Make sure you drink at least a glass of liquid - either the Miracle Juice or water - EVERY hour.       Begin the protocol when you wake up in the morning.

Upon rising & at the end of the day, take ONE serving of a colon-caring supplement, chosen from among the following:

• Powdered psyllium husks (1 to 2 teaspoons mixed in 8 ounces of water or Miracle Juice)

• Ground or milled flaxseeds (2 to 3 tablespoons mixed in 10 to 12 ounces of water or 8 ounces Miracle Juice)

Engage in only light exercise:-  20 minute walk or - 30 min of Yoga/ Qi Gong.

It’s essential that you follow this sequel program for 3 days straight. Otherwise, your re-entry into normal eating may leave you feeling bloated, constipated and more toxic than before.

1. Each day, choose at least one of the following probiotic food sources to restore “friendly bacteria”:

- Pre-Biotin

- Probiotics

- NO Kefir or Kombucha ( contains sugar ! . . parasites & Fungi ( Candida) thrive on sugar . . so if you want to get rid of them . . DON'T FEED THEM !!!!)
