Does Lemon Juice Detox the Liver?

Leave a reply »

Liver detox is just as important as detoxing any other organ in the body. Some people will buy colon cleansing formulas not realizing that you liver needs to be looked after too. Consider a natural detox.

One liver detox is by using lemon juice. Simply add the juice to a glass of water and sip it throughout the meal. This will help you stomach digest your food and prevent undigested food entering the blood stream. This syndrome is sometimes called a leaky gut. Your liver sees them as contaminates, food particles, even minute particles should not be in the bloodstream. Your liver filters them out. Improving the digestion process relieves the liver of this filtering load. This is a great liver detox.

Another reason why it’s is good as a liver detox is that it help get rid of gallstones. Gallstones are calcified bile usually surrounding a parasite or bacteria, in an attempt to destroy the bacteria. Your body can have a really difficult time trying to remove these gallstones and because gallstones are porous they can become a breading ground for further infection, compounding the problem.

You can mix lemon juice with olive oil and Epsom salts which you take at specified times during the day and evening of treatment. When on this treatment you will need to go on a non-fat diet for the day before the cleanse and the day off. Since the bile isn’t being used to breakdown the fat it will build up. The built up bile add pressures to push the stones out of the gallbladder. Now can see why this makes such as great liver detox.

It has another beneficial use to the liver. It’s high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. When the liver removes certain contaminants from the blood stream it converts them to free radicals. Antioxidants neutralize the effects of the free radicals. Are you ready to try this liver detox?

Although there are many people going on lemon juice detoxes, make sure you fully understand what you are doing and make sure you are doing the correct thing, as per advice from your doctor or other medical professional.



  1. The best tasting liver/gallbladder flush I have tasted and I have done a few, is done not with lemon juice but with fresh pink grapefruit juice. For some reason if you shake the oil and the juice together they blend well and it goes down a lot more easily than drinking oil first chased with lemon juice.

    I like your concept of adding an herbal colon cleanser to a healthy diet. I think that is essential to ensuring that the colon cleanser will work effectively and a healthy lifestyle will be preserved.

    You are right – lemon juice is great for health in general. Gall stones, though, are generally not calcium based. Kidney stones are, but not gall stones. The gall bladder flush with lemon juice and olive oil works well. I have recommended it several times and it has succeeded in each case, twice keeping folk out of hospital.

    I have acne on my face, and my best friend has acne on his back, we’re wanting to try a liver clease to clear up our acne, I did the 14 master clease resently and love it, (I’m only a short girl so got to my goal of 96 lbs) and was mostely hoping to clear up my skin, it helped a little but not enough, please give me any advice on clearing my skin, I eat very healthy except my chocolate I have to much of : / but everything else is organic fresh vegeterian nutrious foods, so can’t understad why I still break out, maybe it is all the sugar and caffine in chocolate 🙁 thanks for your time and your great post! 🙂

    to Samjam.
    I just run into your reply and feel like u may need more perspective about clearing acnes.

    It’s been 3 months since I do natural home remedy at home (without any help from doctor) and now I clear almost 100%

    I can say that to have clear skin, u need to do several things at the same time. I follow 6 elements of health building regarding Seppo (writer of Clear For Life ebook) and it revitals overall body system.

    Actually, u do not have to do any detox program. But if u wanna excelerate the process, u can do it together with the 6 elements(diet, sunlight, exercise, sleep, positive mind and breath in quality fresh air).

    U also need to know about Yin-Yang concept and know how to balance it mainly on your diet.

    U have got acne because ur body is out of balance and ur work is to gain it back, just that!

    I also take yogurt fermented by kefir (I use goat’s milk as I’m allergic to cow’s milk) everyday.

    the concept is u need to make ur digestive track flaws very well first and the yogurt can do the job.

    If u have problem with constipation, u need to take fiber 3 times a day during the first week.

    It takes time but all worth it, I guarantee ^^

    From moon-like face (inflammation throughut face) to more flawless face and now only have some small blackhead.

    Oh..for ur face. Please use the product with pH around 5.5 or nearly your natural skin pH (slight acidity).

    One more thing, please be aware that people with acne have the root cause as other chronic syndrome – too much sugar and fat all over your body which prevent most proper functions of your overall cells. Plz do not eat chocolate anymore or it will not be better.

    This is the link u can read more about Yin-Yang and other interesting stuffs.

    (do not panic if u see Thai language there, plz scroll down, there u’ll see the post in English!)

    And this is the link of Heating-food that acne sufferer must avoid! (it works for me and almost 100% of my friends who read and follow the concept)

    Hope these help! ^^

  13. shinybeam says:

    or u may try this out…but i’m not sure if it will work for anyone…

    it’s to take Omega 3 supplements + fermented milk by kefir.

    It works for me in terms that it reduces all inflammation and redness.

    But i’m not sure if it will work the same way for one who has never done “health building” before.

    Moreover, taking supplement, in my opinions, can bring more burden to ur liver…so I suggest that u do detoxing or health building for some time until u feel strong and healthy then start doing this method.

    Please see this link for reference. Seek for Acnecure’s reply (very long one)

    Another secret from Eastern health-building method is this iron rule of taking water.

    For complete digestion, DO NOT drink cold water & DO NOT drink water 15 mins before meal, during the meal and 45 mins after the meal as it will disturb digesting fire.

    Believe me, this basic rule has helped many recover from chronic symtomps and for me just only few days after I adopt this rule I do not have to use deodorant anymore!

    As incomplete digestion can leave u so many toxins.

    U can try this for your own experiment. ^^

    To SamJam:

    My naturapath said that when you also have body acne in addition to face acne, you have a food allergy. Both I and my neighbor found out we have food allergies and afterwards our acne cleared up. Mine was severe and I had had it for about eight years.

    Grapefruit may be a good detox but if you have had a transplant and take prograf grapefruits are toxic they can cause your prograf to kill you.

  17. Carol says:

    stick to a raw foods diets, and research mucus forming foods that’ll work. And true no chocolate especially the kind your eating try raw choclate name is –> raw cacao…do the research
