The Liver Cleanse....


The liver is a massive organ that is the first line of defense against all the toxins and poisons that surround us. The liver produces vital digestive juices that help us to digest our food properly and clean our blood. As we know, our world is full of harsh and dangerous chemicals that we intake daily in our food, our air and in our water. The liver does its best to clean our systems of these toxins but it can only do so much before it is overloaded and needs to be cleaned out itself, much like our air conditioning filters. Can you imagine if you never cleaned your car air filter? The car would only work at a minimal level and the engine could suffer severe damage. So it is with our bodies. Our liver needs to be cleaned or the toxins are stored and our bodies react. We may be suffering such things as fatigue, rashes, depression, obesity, hormonal imbalances, PMS, allergies, jaundice , nausea, headaches, drowsiness after eating, weak muscles and difficulty loosing weight just to name a few. For my family, allergies are a big problem around here. I have been excited to start the liver cleanse to help clear us of these problems. If the liver can work properly, toxins are cleared and allergies are diminished. We shouldn't have allergies. They are a by product of an unhealthy body and environment. I have learned this with Tate as we have fixed his eczema by cleaning out his damaged body and stomach. Now , many foods that once triggered allergies do not pose that problem any longer. His body is much healthier and can get rid of the problems.
We all started the liver cleanse this week officially after starting and stopping a few times. It takes commitment. You need to stay on it for at least 28 days, resting a week and continuing again. Depending on how toxic your body is, you may want to stay on it for a year or more, perhaps even forever. As the liver begins to be cleansed, you feel pretty horrible for a little while. So far, Randi and I and are the ones with the worse side effects. Randi has a sore throat and swollen glands, I feel like I have the stomach flu and am extremely tired. I know it is worth it. Already I have noticed a decrease in allergies. I line up the cups every morning for their liver cleanse cocktail. You must drink it on an empty stomach, first thing.No one is very excited but they drink it down. We follow it with a lick of spice of life and a neti pot cleanse. It is our goal to have another sick free winter. I'll keep you posted.
Here's how you do it:
1 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 drop lemon oil
1 drop peppermint oil
a little purified water just to dilute it a bit.
Drink up! You can add some honey if you need to for the little ones. For those little ninos who have a hard time drinking the cocktail down, you can put the peppermint oil and lemon oil on their feet and putting some lemon juice in their smoothie. It isn't quite as effective but still helps. You need a good quality oil. If you don't buy the pure oil, you never know how the oil has been processed. Many are processed chemically and who wants to add more chemicals to your body when you are trying to get them out in the first place? That is why I support forever green products. I have 8 sets available this week if anyone is interested. It is $35 total for both oils combined, lemon and peppermint (the set will be $40 when I am out of these 8 extra oils, I was able to get a rebate for making such a big order this week so I used that to pay the shipping and tax, next order I won't have that luxury and will have to charge you) . Both of those oils are great to have on hand for other uses as well including:
Peppermint oil: relaxes and soothes; anti inflammatory, eases menstrual cramps, muscular aches and pains, sciatica, arthritis, toothache, sinusitis, mastitis, relieves itching with eczema. Stops pain from bites and injury. Cleanses and purifies. Helps with acne and gingivitis. Tightens capillaries, stimulates white blood cells to strengthen immune system infections, can relieve morning sickness and aid in labor an delivery.
Lemon Oil: Helps decongest the chest, anti-viral to work on colds and flus, assists in weight reduction, helps reduce cellulite and improves circulation. It is also great to clean with.
For me, I have personally had great effects with these oils. I love to add the lemon with some orange oil to clean with in a few cups water in a spray bottle. I also used the peppermint in some water to stop a stomach ache and on my temples to stop a head ache. They smell great and have great effects by just sniffing them alone. I love these oils. I am continually impressed by all the oils that I have used. I have hopes to have all medicines cleared out of my cabinets and having only oils for my first aide.
Let me know who wants some. I will have them in this week. Also, if any of you have certain symptoms and want to know what oils you should use, email me and I will let you know.

Hello, I have just started reading your blog and have learned SO much, thank you for putting your time into this. I just had a question about the oils. On the forever green website they say not to injest undiluted oils, but on you're blog you're saying that you do. Could you explain why you do, or when you should or shouldn't? Thanks so much,
April

Shari Goodman said...

April,
They have to put this down due to the FDA but you can injest all the oils. There are a couple that are hot oils and you want to put those in a capsule first which I will always tell you about. Any of these oils are all edible food. They have been used for centuries. The FDA ruins everything in the USA. Other countries have used these forever.

Reserve a set for me.

Linda Merrill said...

I would like a set of the lemon & peppermint oils!

rachel said...

I'm so glad I was pointed to your blog. A friend of mine told me to check you out because you are right up my alley, she said. And you are! I've put peppermint oil in my vinegar/water cleaning solution to help with the smell and my little 8 month old Ivy has terrible eczema and we put tea tree oil on her after a bath. I'd love to pick your brain more and find out where you get your info (books, websites, classes?) I'm also a massage therapist so I'm always looking for new ways to get us to just relax and get balanced! Me especially. I hear you're having a little free discussion this Thursday? I'd love to hear more!

Shari Goodman said...

The Smiths:
Yes, please come on Thursday. I am not putting on the class, just hosting. I am still learning daily. The book, Nature's Pharmacy is in a reprint right now so I can't get the book yet for you. It gives you info on what oils to use for what symptom. I also love Dr. Mercola and Dr. Weil. I only like these oils for their purity.

Shari-
Please reserve a set for me.
Thanks-

Nicole said...

hi shari, my mom is friends with your mother-in-law and she told me to look up your blog because i have a baby with severe milk allergies...anyway, i was reading about your liver cleanse, my husband is totally into this kind of stuff and was wondering what else you have to do besides the little cocktail in the morning...if you wouldn't mind enlightening me a little my email address is nicoleaustin14@gmail.com. thanks, and we love cindy!

Nichole said...

hey Shari if you have a set left I would love to buy it. We struggle with serious allergies around here as I told you before and I will try anything. email me nichole@the-barneys.com if you still have some. Thanks!

Abby Runyan said...

I'll be at the class too! Can't wait!

DK said...

If you still have any of these sets left, I'll take two if they are available. Thanks, Deena

Dale & Christina said...

I will be at your class on Thurs. If you have a set, count me in. How do these oils compare to the Young Living oils out of UTah?

rachel said...

can any age do it? even 18 month olds? and what about while pregnant?

Shari Goodman said...

This shouldn't pose a problem for pregnant women but I don't think I would just to be cautious. Nursing would be fine. Also, little ones can do it but you need to hide it in a smoothie more than likely or putting it on their feet. Infants need the oil diluted 75% so put some of the oils together in some coconut oil or messenger oil that you can buy from forever green. Then you can put it on their feet. My two year old can handle full stregnth but a newborn I would be a little cautious with and dilute.

I love your blog!!! Thank you for ENLIGHTENING others with your knowledge and your great attitude! I've tried very hard to feed my family good, nutritious meals, and we do the essential oils (we call the liver cleanse "disgustingly refreshing" =) ). Sometimes I just feel worn down, though, as I fight the food battle daily. There are birthday parties, family get-togethers, friend get-togethers, etc., and they always involve foods I'm trying to avoid. Thank you for increasing awareness about the importance of good nutrition, and for helping moms like me to stay strong in our efforts to give our families the best!

Young Living oils clearly state that you can ingest their oils. I believe there are a few that do not taste good so you would not ingest those. Kristin Koglin

Allison said...

Hey, do you still have these sets available and if so can you ship them to Utah?

Shari Goodman said...

Are you talking the lemon and peppermint oil? If so, I can ship them to you , just email me directly at goodman-7@cox.net
