Liver cleansing foods can make a huge change in your life. The health of your liver is reflected in your blood and the health of your blood is reflected in the health of your liver. By promoting liver health, you will be promoting your overall health.
Why Should I do a Liver Detox?
Our livers are absolutely amazing! They work very hard from the day we are born. Your liver is responsible for breaking down almost everything you consume, and even some of the bio-chemicals your body produces. Then realize that for the past 6 decades, we have all been eating many foods that are not completely natural. Foods that have artificial ingredients, dyes, blue 1 and blue 2 for example, that are not as easily broken down as foods that are 100% natural. (There are a huge number of artificial ingredients that food manufacturers add to foods.) All of these man-made additives cause more work for the liver. Also, 7 decades ago, medications became more widely used. Medications are another added burden for the liver to break down. And, 1 more thing, we even breathe in chemicals that also require the liver to break them down, think pesticides and petrochemicals, ie gasoline.
Stress to Your Liver
Even by the time a human body is 30 years old living in the United States, or any other industrial society, that persons liver has worked intensely hard for all those 30 years and would greatly benefit from eating a diet rich in liver cleansing foods. From my 23 years experience helping patients, I can add that taking herbs that also promote liver health can make a dramatic difference to the health of your liver and your whole body.

How to be Vegan is a common question. For most people it requires many big changes. Getting some help would make a big difference in easily becoming vegan. There are 2 very important tips to becoming a vegan here in this post.
You’ll Need a Plan
The number one tip to being vegan is have a plan. How to be a vegan can be easy if you have a plan. If this is a new lifestyle for you, you have a much greater chance to succeed if you have a plan, a blue print to being vegan. Planning meals is one of the biggest deterrents for many people who think they want to become vegan. Even if you have been vegetarian for a while, a plan going into being a vegan can be the one factor that can help you to be successful.
Take a Phased Approach
The next step to becoming vegan is cutting out all foods from your diet that are from an animal. This of course means taking all meat out of your diet, all chicken, turkey, pork, eggs, milk and all dairy products and honey too, since it comes from bees. This is the easy step, the taking out.
Being vegan then really hinges on what foods you can eat. My personal choice is to eat healthy foods and meals. Not to eat vegan foods that are unhealthy foods, (that will be a separate blog post), but my choice is to be healthy for life. This is where it becomes exciting because it will open up a whole world to you that can change your life for the better.
Rethinking Your Diet
The foods you will be eating as a vegan are vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and grains. The trick to successfully being vegan is in eating foods that you will enjoy. That is the important second tip to being vegan successfully. Being vegan does not mean you will be eating rabbit food. This was actually one of my intentions upon creating Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse, to create a blue print for being vegan with truly great tasting and satisfying meals for 30 days. There are many different vegetables to eat, this is your opportunity to try some vegetables that you may have never tried before. As an example, kale sprouts are relatively new and they are yummy! Kale sprouts are a combination of kale and Brussels sprouts. There are number of ways to prepare them and they pack a great dose of needed nutrients.
Giving Your Body What it Needs
Nuts and seeds are a great source for protein as well as healthy fats. We all need healthy fats. And while seeds and nuts are great as snacks, they could be so much more than that! You can use seeds and nuts in breakfasts, lunches and dinners. It is easy when you know how, and have direction for how to incorporate them into a vegan diet. Trying to have a diet without fats is very hard because your body will be yearning for fats, you will be feeling like something is “missing”. This is the sustainable vegan cleanse because you will be giving your body foods it truly needs. You can live and stay healthy for life by eating this way.
Plan to Succeed
Planning meals is one of the biggest deterrents for many people who are considering becoming vegan. You may love being vegan when you learn how to be vegan right. And you will love being vegan when you love the foods you eat!
Being able to follow a plan is one of the favorite things people who have done the 30 Day Vegan Cleanse talk about. My Vegan Cleanse is a blue-print for becoming a vegan. You can learn to be healthy for life maintaining a vegan diet.
