The liver and gallbladder are the organs associated with pitta dosha. Natural toxins can accumulate and be stored here, impairing proper function of these organs. If you’ve overindulged in summer barbecues & spicy foods this gentle liver flush will help bring things back into balance.
This liver flush that can help to restore and rejuvenate liver and gallbladder functions:
- 1-2 t. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Pinch of natural mineral salt
Drink this remedy first thing in the morning. Do not eat breakfast for at least two hours afterwards. A pinch of cayenne can be added for excess kapha conditions and to burn ama (toxins).
The astringent quality of the lemon clears natural toxins from the deep tissues and organs, while the oil lubricates to loosen and eliminate.
This can be taken for 1-3 consecutive days. Ideally, it should be followed by tea of coriander, cumin, and fennel taken throughout the day.
As always, it’s a good idea to consult with your health care provider before undertaking a cleanse.
