- 4 Large organic potatoes (ONLY use the skin)
- 4 large organic carrots (with skin)
- 2 sticks organic celery
- 3 whole organic beets sliced, plus greens
- 2 peeled and sliced organic onions
- 50 cloves of garlic
Simmer for 40-60 minutes in a covered pot using clean filtered water. Strain out the vegetables, cool and drink the broth. Refrigerate leftover broth in glass containers for use over the next couple of days. If desired, add some "Bragg Liquid Aminos" for flavor.
- Whole organic oranges for juicing for 5 days. Or organic fresh squeezed orange juice from the market. (Remember, fresh squeezed apple juice or grape juice with all the sediment will work too.)
- 5 lemons
- 1 bottle of extra virgin olive oil (organic if possible)
- 1 big organic ginger root (about 5 inches worth)
- 4 Organic garlic bulbs should provide enough garlic for your morning drinks (15 cloves over 5 days).
First thing on rising, drink 8oz of pure water to flush your digestive tract. An hour later, in a blender, mix up 8oz of any fresh squeezed citrus - apple or grape juice works great - one lemon, 1 clove of garlic (increase by 1 clove each day), 1 tablespoon of olive oil (increase by 1 tablespoon each day), 1" piece of ginger (thinly sliced to break up the fibers) and 4-8 ounces of pure water.
Add your garlic and ginger to the blender first. Then add only a little bit of the orange juice (or grape if that's what you're using). This will allow you to totally liquify the garlic and ginger before you add the rest of the oil and orange juice and water. One other trick is to slice the chunks of ginger into smaller pieces across the fiber. This will prevent longer fibers from appearing in your drink.
Fifteen minutes after consuming the "morning flush" drink, follow with 2 cups of the Liver Detox Tea (continue with 5-8 cups of tea per day). It is also important to take 12 droppers full of both the Liver Tincture and the Blood Support™ spread throughout each day while on the 5-day cleanse. Continue until the bottles are gone.
Liver Detox Tea Instructions
The tea helps with the flushing process itself, but also helps minimize any discomfort or nausea. The key herb in the tea is dandelion root, one of the strongest herbal lipotropics known. That is to say, it flushes fat deposits from the liver. Other herbs that you will find in the tea include things like: ginger, clove, cinnamon, burdock root, and horsetail. Incidentally, some of the other herbs used in the tea (such as uva ursi, parsley root, and juniper berries) are also extremely beneficial to the kidneys.
Two cups of the tea should be consumed fifteen minutes after drinking your citrus and olive oil flush. But several cups can and should be consumed throughout the day. In fact, consuming the liver/detox tea as a regular part of your diet is a pleasant and tasty way to continually optimize your health. (Feel free to sweeten the tea with honey or real maple syrup as desired.)
You will want a small tea strainer to clean out the small tea bits in the water.
I like to make my tea in a big 8 quart Dutch Oven pot. I fill the pot the night before and add 4-5 tablespoons of Tea, which I let soak overnight. In the morning I simmer for 20 minutes. Then I turn the heat to as low as it goes to keep the tea warm and scoop out cups as I want during the day. I'll drink 5-8 cups a day. At night, I turn off the heat and just top the pot off with water and add 2 more tablespoons of tea to the mix and repeat the simmering process in the morning. Each day, the tea just gets stronger and richer.
It is essential that you purchase a juicer for this phase of the detox, and any good juicer will do. If you don't have one, look on the net for the Miracle Juicer, which you can pick up for less than $100. (Note: a good juicer is probably the single best investment you can make in your health.)
Any combination of all vegetable or all fruit will do. One exception is mixing apple and carrot. I usually make a juice of:
- 1 large apple
- 1 stick celery
- ½” piece of ginger
- enough carrots to make 20-24 oz of juice.
