(for chemically, emotionally or otherwise damaged livers)
Let’s cut to the chase – If your liver is healthy your ability to develop a serious disease is impaired. Good, right? The Chinese have observed this and taught this in their traditional medical schools for years. (FYI – a normal liver-function blood test result does NOT guarantee a well functioning liver!) SO, if you are concerned about getting cancer or diabetes or what your parents developed, why not clean house now? Do this gentle liver build & cleanse routine twice a year. It is gentle and cheap health insurance.
If you have already had cancer – you know it comes back according to this simple rule:
If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.
So you need to change something, and the liver is the best place to start. You know now that the medical treatments for cancer poison the liver – ask your oncologist. That’s why liver cancer is so scary – the only treatment is to poison the organ that needs to be nourished. It’s tragic that they even offer chemo for liver cancer – but that is all they have.
When all you own is a hammer, every problem starts looking like a nail.
In fact, chemotherapeutic agents are themselves carcinogenic. (This is easy to understand in view of the fact that your liver and the lumen of your intestines are your detox factories. Any toxin – even Tylenol – goes to the liver to be broken down so it doesn’t hurt the body tissues.) Even your ability to survive standard medical treatment depends on liver health. Why do ya think they monitor liver enzymes? So start doing something about it. (← rant)
No need to cite all the research on how we trash our liver with environmental toxins – with the internet you can do it yourself. But what does it matter? You cannot avoid these things anyway but you can compensate and fortify yourself in view of them. Besides, God thinks ahead and He knew what we would be exposed to and built in protective mechanisms. However, we were not built to endure for long the effects of anger, hate, rage – the emotional things that really damage the liver (because they are one level higher than the physical).
Know this: those sensitive to every little thing in their environment (allergies) have compromised liver function and/or exhausted adrenals…from compromised liver function. [FYI often allergies, headaches, depression, high blood sugar, hot-flashes, hormone imbalances and shoulder problems relent after this treatment – an extra bonus.]
My approach is to give the liver ingredients to rebuild its own function, then give it ingredients to detox your whole body. Two weeks to build and encourage proper function, then one week to work on your body. This build & cleanse is done in two 3-week cycles. If your bowels tend to be slow then your liver is likely toxic but you should investigate remedies for improving that function.
Many of us may have sound and functioning livers but if we haven’t provided, through our diet, the materials necessary for the liver to render the toxins that are brought to it harmless, then it will sequester these toxins in the body tissues (often the fat cells but sometimes the liver cells). So these herbs provide a variety of phyto-chemicals that are useful for breaking down toxic substances. It is good to rotate and provide a wide variety of phyto-chemicals to your liver. FYI – A clue that you are missing these detoxing ingredients is a craving for sour foods – pickles, mustard, vinegar, lemons, etc. See the liver doc for more indicators.
Note: If your bowels are very stubborn, consider doing the gentle magnesium bowel cleanse first.
Herbs you need:
1. Chinese Blood Build (or Stimulator) TCM (BP-C) (#1005-9) is a combination that encourages proper liver function. It is used to overcome blood deficiencies and hormone imbalances associated with chronic liver dysfunction. The herbs work to enhance immune response, reduce free radicals and improve blood circulation. I have found that this reliably works for anemia.
2. Chinese Mood Elevator TCM (AD-C) (#1035-7) contains herbs which strengthen the liver and its function. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) teaches that the liver supports the mood, thus helping the liver helps the mood as well. This combination is good for a liver that is sluggish which results in a sinking/heavy feeling in the chest or in bouts of depression. This formula helps with some eye problems.
Your first time around on this cleanse you should use Enviro Detox but not if you have a tendency to diarrhea. Enviro Detox has a mild tendency to move the bowels which may be too much for some people (and not enough for others). If diarrhea is not the case with you then the first cycle use the EnviroDetox. Depending on your results and how you felt during the cleanse you can continue to use it or switch up to Chinese Liver Balance. In my opinion this is gentler and yet still will aid in detoxing the body.
4. Gentle Move (#952-9) soothes the bowels while encouraging proper function of them. As the liver rids itself and the body of toxins through the bile, it should be absorbed and moved out.
One bottle of each will get you through the 6 weeks. To repeat this 6 -week cycle you will need to reorder only 1. and 2. above. This detox is not hard on your body at all and you can continue this until you feel it has done all the good it can for you. People report to me that they feel so much better from an odd variety of ailments. And no one has ever told me they are sorry they spent this $ and time on themselves.

Enhancements to Target Specific Imbalances
As discussed elsewhere on this site there are supplements that can be added to this cleanse to get better results for particular situations. To keep the cleanse ‘gentle’ you can add only one (or two) of them in at breakfast.
MSM (#4059-4) Add this for joint problems, or allergies or acid reflux up to 2B, 2D
N-Acetyl Cysteine (#509-7) If you suffer from sleep disturbances, or lymph stagnation 2B
SAMe (#1845-2) If you have sinking mood episodes – minor or major or are on anti-depressants 2B, 2D
Milk Thistle TR If you are on, or have been on many/any medications for a long time. 1B
You may want to stay on this while on any medications or if you consume a lot of GMO foods (franken foods) at the level of 1B, 3x/week.
Consider this…..I have learned more from very sick people than I have from double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. My sick clients taught me how to get them well - things that even my teachers didn't know. I have such smart clients.

So if the required warnings have not scared you away, then you have a chance. I'm reporting here what kinds of approaches actually helped very sick people get well, AND the kinds of things that actually made them sick (and it usually isn't lack of exercise, weight, menopause or smoking - it is the underlying cause of all those things.)
