The Liver is a powerful workhorse and is responsible for detoxifying, filtering, nourishing, restoring and storing blood as well as a myriad of other complex and essential functions. Therefore to be at our best we must have a healthy well functioning liver. Luckily there are many natural plants and herbs that can help cleanse and support the liver naturally, by stimulating its natural ability to expel toxic waste from the body. Peter uses these in his Detox Tea recipe which you will find below.
For instance, Dandelion root has been used by many cultures throughout the ages to cleanse and support the liver and stimulate the flow of bile. It is often recommended for use by Naturopaths and Herbalists to their patients who are dealing with liver disorders and other health issues.
Chaga is a type of mushroom that grows on birch trees in colder climates across the Northern Hemisphere and is dried and used as a tea. Chaga has has the ability to stimulate the production of bile in the liver is not only beneficial for digestive function, but for liver health as well. Bile helps the liver to flush out toxins filtered from the bloodstream, preventing them from accumulating in the liver and causing damage to the surrounding tissue.
