Liver Detox Symptoms
Liver detox symptoms are a common detox reaction to the toxins released from the liver during the liver cleanse. Symptoms can affect multiple areas in the body. They can also affect the way you feel. Common liver detox symptoms may include:
- Well being: flu like symptoms, fever, chills, fatigue, weakness, tiredness, brain fog, headaches.
- Digestive issues: gas, bloating, diarrhea, nausea, stomach pain, cramps, excess mucus production.
- Skin: rash, itching, sores, breakouts, bruising.
- Body aches: muscle joint pain, sore throat.
Additional liver cleanse side effects can also cause emotional symptoms. These are somewhat more common than other body cleanses and may include anxiety, depression and anger.
Not all liver detox symptoms are considered as side effects. Many people who followed our gallbladder liver cleanse protocol reported seeing gallstones, dead parasites such as liver flukes in stool. While these may not look very pretty, this is usually the point where people start to feel better.
Liver Cleanse Side Effects
Liver cleanse side effects are not a sign that the cleanse is working. Strong symptoms of detoxing liver mean that the amount of toxins released from the liver is more than what your body can safely handle. The high level of toxins put a lot of stress on internal organs, especially the colon, liver and kidneys that are involved in filtering toxins in the body.
Based on our experience: many of the liver cleanse side effects can be easily prevented. Below our the best ways you can do to prevent the negative liver detox symptoms, for a safe and effective natural liver cleanse.
1. Colon Cleanse Before Liver Cleanse
The reason you always want to do a colon cleanse before liver cleanse is simple. The colon is the primary organ of elimination. It is responsible for removing toxins from the body through normal bowel movements. Making sure your colon is free from waste buildup so it can quickly eliminate the toxins released from the liver during the cleanse, is the most important step during the liver cleanse.
Based on our experience, not cleansing the colon before the liver cleanse is the main reason of the liver cleanse side effects many people experience. It just takes the body too much time to eliminate these toxins.
This is exactly what oxygen colon cleanse (Oxy-Powder ) is designed to do. As its name suggests, Oxy-Powder uses oxygen in the colon to detoxify and loosen toxins, undigested food particles and waste buildup so they can be flushed out naturally by the body. When your colon is free of all this waste buildup, it can get rid of toxins quicker during your cleanse, which can prevent and minimize many of the liver cleanse side effects. This is done in a completely natural and gentle way, yet it has shown to be very effective.
2. Is Your Body Ready For A Liver Cleanse?
If you are new to body cleanses and have never done a liver cleanse, you may want to start with easier body cleanses. The liver is the primary organ in the body responsible for filtering toxins out of the body (1). For this reason, it is likely that there will be more toxins released during the liver cleanse compared to other body cleanses.
A good place to start is cleaning your diet. Then follow up with a colon cleanse. As your body gets cleaner, there will be less toxins in your liver. So you are less likely to experience strong liver detox symptoms and liver cleanse side effects.
3. Liver Cleansing Herbs
Gallbladder and liver cleansing herbs have the ability to relax the bile duct. This may help the body to pass gallstones more easily and minimize the chances that of a gallstone get stuck. Using liver cleansing herbs can also help the body to better handle the released toxins from the gallbladder and liver, and support the regeneration of damaged liver tissue.
For this reason, we highly recommend to include liver cleansing herbs during the liver cleanse.
Livatrex is the gallbladder liver herbal complex we have been using in our gallbladder and liver cleanse protocols. We have experienced great results in terms of effectiveness, ease of use and lower liver detox side effects. Livatrex uses a patented process that preserves the complete nutritional profile and freshness of the herbs. The formula combines organic wildcrafted gallstones, gallbladder and liver cleansing herbs specifically designed to help the body:
- Soften and dissolve gallstones.
- Detoxify fatty deposits and buildup in the gallbladder.
- Promote overall liver health and regeneration.
How To Do A Liver Cleanse
Knowing how to do a liver cleanse properly may also minimize many symptoms of detoxing liver. Most liver and gallbladder flushes (including our protocol) are based on the late Dr. Hulda Clark liver cleanse protocol. A similar protocol was also published by Andreas Moritz. Gallbladder and liver cleanse protocols typically include a 7 day liver cleanse diet. The last day known as the flush day, is where you pass the gallstones.
A part that is often overlooked, is the liver cleanse diet. What you do before the flush day. Eating healthy and clean diet, avoiding problematic foods can also help to minimize the liver cleanse side effects.
- Liver cleanse diet:
Avoid eating foods that can aggravate gallbladder issues.
Avoid hard to digest foods.
Eat foods that support healthy gallbladder and liver function.
- Liver cleanse drinks
Can help to support healthy liver function and continue to gently remove toxins from the liver between the cleanses.
