Detoxing the Body – Naturally: Part 2I I’ll be transparent here – I’ve never done a liver cleanse before. But all of t he research I do regarding health on a daily basis has led me to this point. Nowadays, my body speaks LOUD and CLEAR if something is off or imbalanced (Or maybe I’m just actually listening to it now). I’ve discovered that I had quite a few symptoms of a congested liver. What is that you ask? It’s when the body consumes things that are high in toxin and chemicals causing the liver to clog up. This can be food, drinks, but even environmental. Again i will be transparent, when I lived my life in the music and fashion industry for over a decade, I wasn’t exactly the healthiest. I consider myself to have lived an active lifestyle, being a life long athlete into dance – but mindfulness – no – I was constantly surrounded by alcohol, drugs, and was not conscious of the inorganic foods I ate. I believe when I made that switch into the health and wellness industry in 2012, becoming holistic with mind and body – that is when my body started to release the toxins and an array of health problems started to surface in attempt to free my body of anything harmful. Since then I’ve been dedicated to correcting all of these problems and then became a health coach! Good thing I’m cleansing and correcting now, at age 29 than trying to do this when I’m 40 and barely realizing what I needed to stay healthy.
How important is the liver?TThe liver is one of the major organs in our body and it’s main function is to eliminate toxic substances from the body. The liver purifies the blood but if the liver becomes inactive or congested with toxic overload, it can lead to serious health problems. The liver cannot perform properly and is incapable of detoxifying waste product when it’s congested.
Some of the symptoms are:
- Bodily dryness
- Kidney pain
- Eczema / skin irritation
- Lack of focus
- Irregular menstrual cycles / hormonal imbalance
- Pulsating headaches
- Pain in the right side of abdomen
- Anal itching
- Too much sleep

II remember seeing the Neem products on one of my affiliate partners Banyan Botanicals website in an affiliate newsletter about their “Love Your Liver” article. A light bulb went off! Not only is it the July’s herb of the month with discounts, it was incredibly inexpensive! Banyan Botanicals is a certified organic, fair trade source of Ayurvedic herbs. Neem has traditionally been used to purify the blood, cleanse the liver and support the immune system and if you know anything about Ayurvedic medicine, neem is a tri-dosha balancer. I I just got my Neem powder in the mail today and I’m incredibly excited to start this detox of the liver. How I will incorporate this is through smoothies and water. I chose the powder for this simple reason: it can be blended and mixed with any liquid. If you are one who doesn’t drink smoothies or juice often or doesn’t like the taste of herbal water – you might want to opt for the neem tablets as a daily supplement. If you have lymphatic system problems and want to under-go this liver detoxification, I would recommend the Blood Cleanse Tablets, it has a blend of 5 powerful blood purifiers and supports the blood, lymph, and liver.
Um hello yum!
