Simple Ways to Support Your LIVER this Spring


Our liver works very hard each day to protect the body, cleanse our blood, help digestion and to process unwanted toxins; in fact the liver performs over 500 functions in the body! It’s a very important organ, and considering a detox to give your liver some support, some time out, and some renewed energy will help boost your vitality – both physically and mentally.

To start each day, have a glass of warm water with either half a lemon squeezed into it, and/or a couple of teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar. This will wake up the liver and gallbladder, support digestion and is alkaline for the body.


DRINK plenty of water each day, it’s the first crucial step when detoxing! (we recommend you lessen the chemical load on your liver and drink filtered or spring water) Replace regular tea and coffee with herbal teas - there are some great detox teas you could try. Green tea does contain some caffeine if you feel you can’t do without it, the bonus is it also has many health giving anti-oxidant and metabolism boosting benefits.

A note on DEHYDRATION Many of us are chronically dehydrated most of the time. Drinking regular tea and coffee both act as a diuretic, which means we need to drink much more water if we live on tea and coffee all day. Signs of dehydration include going to the toilet less, dark yellow urine, headaches, tiredness, muscle cramps and confusion. (we function so much better when our body and brain cells are plump and hydrated)

EAT plenty of fresh raw salads or lightly steamed vegetables for lunch and dinner. (and for breakfast too if you feel you can) Eating these raw means you benefit more from the nutrients and enzymes contained within. (include cruciferous vegetables – cauliflower, broccoli, watercress, kale, cabbage etc, plus garlic, leeks and onions as they contain important nutrients for detoxification) One or two pieces of fresh fruit each day is useful for satisfying any craving you may have for sugar, while providing you with some great nutrients and fibre. Eat a variety of vegetables.

EAT quality protein such as fish, chicken or free range eggs. Snack on nuts and seeds – these provide protein and fat and will usually also help with curbing hunger between meals.

EAT good quality fats such as avocado, extra virgin olive, flaxseed and coconut oils, and eat organic where possible. (coconut oil has a high heat point so is ideal for lightly sauteing vegetables in) These oils are ideal for healthy dressings on your salads or vegetables, together with lemon or lime juice.

EXERCISE – get walking, go for a swim, do some yoga – whatever you choose, just get moving a bit each day. It will get your blood and lymphatic fluid flowing around your body, enabling more toxin removal and also oxygenation of your tissues. It activates your muscles and boosts metabolism and endorphins at the same time!

AVOID alcohol, fizzy drinks, sugary drinks, coffee and red meat. (of interest - alcohol abuse is quite possibly the most common cause of liver damage today)

AVOID all processed, refined and packaged foods, avoid sugar and all artificial sweeteners, additives, colourings and preservatives. Doing this will reduce the daily toxin load on your liver and it will be less clogged up!

AVOID eating too many grain and/or dairy product based meals while you are supporting your liver. This will help to ease liver congestion and will help free the liver up to start doing its job more effectively.


Finally don’t underestimate the importance of good sleep every night, and keeping on top of any stress in your life.

You’re important. Why not treat your liver to a wee spring clean, and you may find you feel a whole lot better – both physically and mentally!
