Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price!

Nine Important Points for Optimum Liver Health
(from Natural Therapy for Your Liver)
  1. Eat a natural-foods diet of high-quality fresh food with lots of variety. Lower your fat intake. Eat less refined, cooked oils and fats. Obtain essential oils from whole nuts and seeds.

  2. Rest the digestive system whenever possible. Don't eat too late at night or too early in the morning. Don't eat when not hungry, and especially never overeat.

  3. Be aware of proper food combining. Sweet fruit and cooked protein are the worst combination, causing fermentation.

  4. Liver flushes and drinking lemon-water keep the liver moisturized and free-flowing.

  5. Keep the eliminative channels open and free. Exercise to eliminate toxins via the lungs and skin. Have at least one bowel movement a day.

  6. Massage the liver area at least once a day to help remove congestion.

  7. Worry or anger can get stuck in the liver. Release these emotions in a constructive way.

  8. Antioxidants such as vitamins E and C, beta-carotene, zinc, and selenium protect against toxins. Herbal antioxidants are superior to synthetic vitamins, though both can be used together.

  9. Herbal formulas to cleanse, protect, and stimulate the liver are highly recommended. Teas for long-term use include a blend of roasted dandelion, chicory, and ginger; Puri-Tea, Polari-Tea; or any of the other teas in this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When my doctor told me that I have a fatty liver, he told me several things NOT to eat (chocolate, beef, coffee, tea, fast food, sugar substitutes--not even gum--etc.), but his only suggestions of WHAT to eat were fresh vegetables, fish, and free-range chicken & eggs. I don't like seafood, and I am not fond of chicken, so I thought I needed more alternatives. Using this book and several others--which I also ordered from Amazon, I was able to discipline myself to follow my doctor's orders, and lost 30 pounds in less than six months. It's a very helpful book.

Format: Paperback
I have something of an interest in herbalism but I am not inclined to take everything this author says at face value. He outlines some medical concepts in juxtaposition with principles of traditional Chinese medicine and western herbalism as though there was an connection. However, I do not actually see any connection identified or explained other than by the physical proximity on the page. I am looking forward to trying some of the concoctions and blends listed in the pages but I am going to draw my own conclusions and read some more from other studies rather than rely on the assertions in this book.
