Cleanse Your Liver with These Two Common Plants

You don’t really need to undergo a fast, however, to get the cleansing benefits of beets and radishes. Simply follow this program for a healthy liver.


1. Radishes

Wash and peel about 22 pounds (10 kilos) of radishes (black radishes are best but regular radishes are good also) and put them in your juicer. This will yield about 6 pounds of juice. Store this juice in your refrigerator.

Take the fibers that are left in your juicer and mix them in the following manner. For every 2 pounds of fiber, add 17 ounces of brown sugar and 10 ounces of raw honey. Mix well and put in a warm, dark place (such as a kitchen cabinet near the stove). Shake this mixture once per day.

Begin your liver cleansing program by first taking one teaspoon of the juice in your fridge one hour after every meal. When the juice is gone, add about 3 teaspoons of the fiber/sugar/honey mixture into your food each day. Most people find it easy to put this mixture in their morning smoothie.

      Or better yet, Gabe and others, monitor sites like Todd’s Seeds, which sell non-GMO / OP / Organic seeds in bulk, because once a year I can buy onsale about 5# of Radish or some suitable Cruciferous Seed which I then use for SPROUTING! Radish Sprouts are just about the most versatile, delicious, cost-effective, and concentrated medicinal vegetable we can consume… for versatility – you can literally consume a cup a day without even noticing due to their superior flavor and adaptability. If you look into the nutritional profile of Radish Sprouts it will knock your socks off! Then compare the price to full-grown vegetables which are often quite old and nutrition-denatured (as compared to the high enzymatic LIVE nature of a sprout). Then consider the hard-core medicinal value of any Cruciferous Sprout (Radish, Cabbage, Broccoli, Mustards), and it will become instantly evident that you simply cannot go another day without tackling this learning imperative. As an added bonus: Sprouts are the ULTIMATE Survival Food and Sprouting is your #1 Survival Skill in terms of ROI – Return on Investment. You can operate a sprouting jar anywhere including while living in a car or backpack, you can “produce” this extremely valuable medicine-food year-round with so little storage space for raw materials that your lazy mind will not be able to listen to your pathetic excuses once you Just Try It Once! Get your Sprouting System up and running for the rest of your life! I still rely on mason jar with food-grade nylon mesh screen, but there are many other options. Again, look for seeds in bulk (I ALWAYS have Mung + Radish/cruciferous mix going 24/7/365) and on sale….the rest, learning how to consume them would be the subject of an entire chapter in any Food Self-Reliance Book, and you really need to give yourself the gift of writing that chapter yourself! The sky is the limit in other words, and this will be nothing but DELICIOUS FUN!

        You’re pretty sharp, Lady Ariel. I have purchased broccoli seeds from Todd for sprouting, but i sprout them in my home made compost in little 5” by 5” plastic containers that mushrooms come in.
        I make a motion to nominate you, Secretary of Health! Wish you were my neighbor. Would like to discuss health over a glass of wheatgrass juice with you.
        Continued good health, Ariel.

          I am in the Pacific NW….where are you? I would like to hear how you can consume Wheatgrass Juice. Alas, I get an allergic reaction every time I try….

            Well, Madam Secretary, we couldn’t be farther apart. I live in Lauderdale by the Sea in Florida, but my favorite area in the US is your neck of the woods. There was a time that I would travel to the Portland, Oregon area, once or twice a year, to try and relocate from Michigan.
            As far as your reaction to wheatgrass juice maybe you were having a healing crisis and now it may agree with you. I love the taste of it, sometimes four ounces at a time, with the glass never leaving my lips, just slowly sipping and enjoying the aroma. It was like a spiritual experience to me. Of course I grow my own.

            Actually, I found this so-called “allergic reaction” I have applies to any concentrated green leaves, a pile of spinach on my plate can do it too, as well as powdered chlorella, spiralina, even powdered cilantro — all organic, mold-free storage, etc. Upon further investigation, I see it may be related to the “purines” intolerance issue in those with CKD (me). Alas, I have had this for life, so this last trail I have gone down is likely the correct one, and I will need to carefully monitor my Greens ingestion for the rest of my life, which can’t be too much longer given the many other end-of-life issues I am now confronting. What I am trying to engineer is a soft landing. I do use Greens multiple times/day, but also constantly have to back off, therefore don’t think I can entertain the addition of another source of Greens. Thanks for the input cyber-friend!

            I’m so sorry to hear of your situation, Ariel. I’m sure you have researched extensively by reading your posts and I trust that the soft landing you’re looking for will manifest in time, but there’s no hurry. You have a lot to offer Life.
