Include fiber rich fruits, vegetables and Sulfur-rich foods like onions and garlic. Avoid alcohol, processed foods, carbonated beverages, fried foods. Use a good quality RO water filter and air purifier at home to reduce the toxins your liver has to fight on a daily basis. Ayurveda advocates a cleanse twice in a year that resets the liver to fight the battle against toxins.

Dr Janardhana Hebbar

Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Considering the toxic environment that we live in, being exposed to poisons in water, food and air is something that we have evolved into. Both your kidneys and your liver filter your blood of toxins but the liver does an additional role-that of breaking these toxins down for quick expulsion. The two-phase enzymatic process first neutralizes toxins and then binds these broken fragments to other molecules, negating their toxicity and excreting it through bile, urine or stool. Unless you live in a “clean” environment and intake food that is easy on the liver, chances are your liver is overburdened and losing the battle.

While a good diet will support the liver, a manual cleanse or detox helps remove stored toxins, allowing the liver to rest and recharge. Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese medicine have advocated liver cleanse since ages.

There are multiple ways to cleanse the liver including products available in the market including laxatives and diets that promise a quick cleanse. But these might lead to dehydration and eroding of vital nutrients from the body. Search for a knowledgeable herbalist or ayurvedic practitioner (panchkarma) to undergo a detox as per your body constitution.

To maintain good liver health and detox gradually and naturally, include fiber rich fruits and vegetables in your diet to help eliminate toxins that the liver breaks down. Include Sulfur-rich foods (onions, garlic, broccoli, kale, collard greens, Brussels sprouts, etc.) in your diet that are known to help your liver detoxify environmental toxins, including prescription drugs and pesticides. While you eliminate toxins work towards putting them into your system in the first place by avoiding foods (alcohol, processed foods, carbonated beverages, fried foods, trans fats, etc.) that increase the toxic load on your liver.

There is very little you can do about your external environment, but using a good quality RO water filter and air purifier at home should reduce the toxins the liver has to fight on a daily basis. Pure water is a great cleanser so keep your body and liver hydrated to aid smooth movement of toxins out of the system. Keep up your activity levels to expel toxins through sweat.

Ayurveda advocates a cleanse twice in a year (during specific seasons) and based on your prakriti that renews and resets the liver to fight the ever increasing battle against toxins.

Since there are so many elements that are toxic for our internal organs, it is crucial that we detoxify them effectively as well. Use antioxidants, take healthy food supplement and drink a lot water to keep your body clean from the inside.

Issues with weight often are the result of an overburdened liver. To put it another way, a clean liver can help you reduce weight.Somewhat related are viral diseases and parasites that can clog the liver when your body's immune systems are trying to eliminate them. In the worst case, these can do permanent damage.To be truly healthy you must have a healthy liver.

Yes Ayurveda...gull stones are the closest feeling to having a baby pushing it through the birth canal then any other pain and when a man has gallstones the doctors will tell the man this is what birth feels like... I hear that staying a lot!... Please have the Drs...take it out. Right now it would be a very simple laproscopic surgery for you to have them removed but if you do not get to remove soon they will have to cut you open the old fashioned way and take them out if I can I will send you a picture of what the old fashioned way looks like!

Ash Khan..gullstones you truly can'get rid of..unless you have a small stone..the size of a piece of Sand I had to have my gallbladder removed and before that ever happened I want to learn everything I could learn because I didn't want to have them surgically removed in the long run gall stones are about the only thing that will not pass without damaging other parts.. like the liver.. the duck that it has to pass through is smaller than the size of a pinky in the diameter and that heads towards the liver so if the stone gets caught in the duck then you will have loss of blood flow there are ways to naturally lubricate them for little less pain from movement.. and maybe you might get lucky to pass them that wat.. if anybody tells you you can pass them at a hundred percent is wrong! I even had another gallbladder attack after I had the surgery about a year later and first they thought I was sick with something else then when they went back in an took a look at the MRI and Kat scans I was having another attack..and this time they put me into a tub and did a sonic vibration to shatter the stones within and then they put a tube in to me a drainage tube was really a trip to because it was square and rectangular with a bunch of holes in it and that pulled out the the liquid from the gall bladder area which is the bile and that bottle carried out the broken up stones but they still had to surgically open me up to put that to me for it to drain!.. I am the first one in the medical books at UCI Medical Center in California for having gallstones with no gallbladder but I had to learn a lot because I did die on the table when they were removing everything because that one stone was stuck in the duck to my liver and they could not start blood back up without busting that stone that stone ended up being the size of a large steely !
