How to Cleanse Your Liver

By Contributor ; Updated July 27, 2017

There are many symptoms of a toxic liver such as feeling bloated or rundown, unexplained weight gain, allergy-like symptoms or dry brittle skin, fingernails and hair. This procedure will cleanse the liver and put you on your way to regaining your health.

First and foremost let me say that I AM NOT a doctor and this procedure IS NOT meant to be medical advice or a prescription for any illness. If you have any question as to the validity of this cleanse you should consult a physician that is knowledgeable in alternative and/or natural healing remedies. Use this information at your own discretion. I have done this several times over the last 2 years and I am amazed at how much better I feel.

For three days before the actual cleanse you will want to mini-fast. Eat as little as possible and only eat raw unprocessed fruit and/or all vegetable salads with no dressing. Every day drink at least one quart of unfiltered, high quality apple juice, preferably home-made. You should have to shake the apple juice up to mix the sediment from the bottom of the container.

Chose a day to do the cleanse when you have the next day free as well to rest. Take no medicines, pills or vitamins that you can do without. Eat a no-fat breakfast of fruit and a fat-free light lunch with no dairy products.

Do not eat or drink anything after 2:00pm. Prepare your Epsom salt mixture at this time. Mix 4 heaping tablespoons of Epsom salt, 3 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin C powder together in your jar. This is four, 3/4 cup servings.

6:00 PM. Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the Epsom salts water.

8:00 PM. Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the Epsom salts water. Get everything done now that you normally do before bedtime. Be prepared to spend the rest of the evening relaxed and alone. Timing is critical for the rest of the process so do not be more than 10 minutes late or early for any of the remaining steps.

9:45 PM. Pour the olive oil and the 3/4 cup of combined lemon/grapefruit juice into the second jar. Close the jar and shake vigorously until the ingredients are well mixed.

10:00 PM. Be prepared to go to bed and STAY in bed. Take the oil/fruit juice mixture to your bedside and drink it standing up. Take four of the Ornithine capsules if you have them to help you sleep through the night. Get everything down as quickly as possible and lie down immediately. Lie on your right side in the fetal position with your knees pulled up to your chest for at least 30 minutes.

After the 30 minutes have passed you can turn onto your back with your head on a good thick pillow. Try to keep perfectly still, relax and go to sleep.

6:00 am the next morning drink your third 3/4 cup of Epsom salts water. It's best that you don't get up so bring the water to your bedside table the night before when you go to bed or have someone bring it to you. Remain in bed staying still and relaxed.

8:00 am take your fourth and final 3/4 cup of the Epsom salts water and go back to bed if you like.

10:00am Drink some fruit juice and 30 minutes later you can eat some fresh fruit. An hour or so later you can start to eat regular food again but keep it light and uncooked. Also drink more water than usual to replenish your body with lost fluids. By suppertime you should be fully recovered and feeling re-energized.


If this is your first liver cleanse you may need to repeat the process in two weeks. To help maintain liver health the cleanse should be done twice a year. To maintain liver health limit the amount of high-fat foods such as potato chips, salad dressings and excessive amounts of dairy products that you ingest.


The morning of the second day expect to have mild diarrhea You may feel a little uncomfortable for a couple of days as the liver continues to purge toxins.
