Recipe for a Liver Cleanse

By Shauna Osborn

This is a recipe for a gentle liver cleanse that should be done in the morning. It can be done once, or up to three days in a row. Caffeine and alcohol should be avoided for at least three days before the cleanse.


1 cup organic fruit juice (apple or cranberry work best) Fresh squeezed juice from 2 to 3 lemons, or 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder 1 cup spring or distilled water 1 clove garlic 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil 1/4 to 1/2 inch fresh ginger root


Crush or press the garlic clove. Add all ingredients into the blender. Blend until everything is smooth. Drink slowly on an empty stomach. Follow up with a glass of water or organic juice.

After Drinking the Cleansing Liquid

Within an hour of drinking the cleansing liquid, a soothing hot herbal tea can be imbibed. Continue to drink lots of liquids throughout the day, especially water. Avoid caffeine and alcohol.

Side Effects

Cleansing the liver can often cause anger, sadness and general irritability during the process. Flushing your system of toxins can create headaches, a slight fever and frequent urination.


This cleanse can help renew energy levels and vitality. It can bring feelings of joy and well being once the toxins are released from your body.
