The detoxifying of the body has been practiced for many centuries. Many religious groups and even Hippocrates recommended fasting to improve health.
Many detox diets nowadays can help you lose weight, but if you start a low-calorie fasting, your body can starve and your metabolism will slow down because of the important nutrients loss.
Other negative effects a detox diet can cause are dehydration, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, or colon damage. Detox can help you lose some extra pounds, treat acne and other skin problems, and even more.
The liver is perhaps the most important organ in the body when it comes to detoxification. The liver is the first defense organ against toxins. It functions as a filter and prevents toxins in food to pass into the blood stream.
This is how you can clean toxins with olive oil and lemon in 7 steps. This is a simple cleanse you can do at home with common household ingredients. It will help your body to get rid of the toxins and pollutants that accumulate in your liver.
How to Detoxify the Liver in 24 Hours
You will need: – Organic apples
– Fresh organic lemons
– 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
– Measuring cup
– Herbal laxative
– Prune juice
Prepare yourself for the cleanse. Eat as many organic apples as you can and drink at least a quart of fresh organic apple juice for three days prior to your cleanse.
Wash organic lemons thoroughly, squeeze the juice out and strain the lemon juice through a strainer to separate the seeds. You will need a half cup of lemon juice so squeeze enough lemons to get that amount.
Measure a half cup of extra-virgin organic olive oil that’s at room temperature.
Mix well the equal amounts of extra-virgin olive oil with lemon juice and consume a cup before bedtime.
Drink the mixture immediately, because the olive oil and lemon juice may separate. Try not to eat solid foods throughout the day. You can drink herbal teas, soups, vegetable broth and water to stave off hunger.
Lie down for around 30 minutes. This will help if you are feeling nauseous after drinking the olive oil and lemon mixture.
The next morning drink one cup of herbal laxative tea, then prune juice or eat a few prunes to stimulate bowel movements and elimination of toxins from the body.
