Does your liver need a detox?

Whilst it’s commonly known that excessive drinking causes liver damage, there are many other toxins that are processed through the liver. The human body is exposed to toxins daily from the air we breathe, the water we drink, plastics, chemical cleaning products, cosmetics, medications, recreational drugs, cigarette smoke, and the list goes on. At some point, the liver becomes overloaded, and the detoxification process is impaired.

Signs of poor liver detoxification

  • Liver damage
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Fatty liver and high cholesterol
  • Migraines
  • High blood sugar
  • Allergies
  • Poor digestion
  • Nausea
  • Sugar cravings
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Eczema/dermatitis
  • Stress
  • Fatigue

The detoxification process

The liver detoxifies though three phases and is the most important organ in metabolism. The first phase is a process of chemical breakdown of the toxins; the second phase prevents oxidative damage to the body from the products produced in the phase one; and the third phase removes the final products of detoxification from the liver though the gall bladder to the bowels.

How to support the liver


Antioxidants are an important part of the second phase of detoxification and can reduce inflammation which leads to liver dysfunction. All fruit and vegetables contain antioxidants, but the most effective vegetables are garlic, onion, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli; while berries, apples, citrus fruit, and grapes are the most beneficial fruit choices.

Dietary fibre

Fibre is important in regulating blood sugar, as fuel for a healthy gut microbiome, preventing constipation, absorbing bile and reducing the formation of gallstones. It is found in wholegrains, fruit and vegetables.


Fats are important to stimulate bile, reduce gallstones, and reduce inflammation. Essential fatty acids are found in fish, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and grass-fed meat. Avoid trans fats (found in many packaged snacks and fast foods) and deep fried foods.


Find something within your capabilities that you enjoy and move your body most days.

Reduce toxins

Sugar is closely associated with metabolic syndrome and liver disease. Reduce refined sugar and eat fruit or natural sugars as an alternative. Look out for chemical food additives in all processed foods: colours, flavours, and preservatives, and choose natural food products. If possible, eat organic foods which are free from herbicides and pesticides. Use natural cleaning products in your home, as well as personal cleaning products and cosmetics. Drinking filtered or spring water is preferred and spend time in nature breathing in the fresh air.
