Spring is here! Daffodils, cherry blossoms, trillium, & daisies are some of the first flowers of the season. Seeds and roots begin to grow and break through the soil after being dormant through the winter months. Spring is the season for new beginnings.
Beginnings, cleaning home & body, elimination, exercise, garden, greens, sprouts, creativity, enthusiasm.
Same old stuff, excess, congestion, laziness, weeds, drugs, overeating.
The liver has many functions but one of its main responsibilities is cleaning toxins and waste from our blood. Spring is the perfect time to detox the liver so it functions properly. Here is a simple liver flush I do every spring since studying at the Dandelion Herbal Center.
Liver Flush: 1/2 cup orange juice 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup water 1-2 cloves garlic, 1 tsp olive oil
Mix all ingredients in blender, drink first thing in the morning, follow with 1-2 cups tea (equal parts fennel, flax, and fenugreek) wait at least one hour before eating. Repeat for 5-10 consecutive days.
Good foods for the liver: Beets, parsley, nettle, dandelion, miso, carrots, lemon water, dark leafy greens.
