The liver is the largest organ in the body and has over 700 known functions, when it become sluggish it needs help, a Doterra detox with essential oils can do this naturally
The liver can become overworked by exposure to an excessive amount of toxins. Some examples of toxins are pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals in the air and water, environmental toxins, and over-processed foods containing many unnatural chemicals.
An overloaded liver becomes congested and sluggish, and rather than removing toxins from the body, they now become trapped in the liver and eventually spill over into the bloodstream causing other organs to malfunction and eventually liver failure.
A person cannot live without a functioning liver and the level at which the liver is operating is an indication of the quality of life of the individual.
Therefore it is important to keep the liver operating at as high a level as possible.
Doterra lemon essential oil uses in liver detox
An effective Doterra detox is to keep the liver operating at optimum capacity as well as to combine a daily liver cleansing with a healthy diet.
A liver cleansing with a Doterra Detox Blend will clean and detoxify the liver and increase its capacity to remove toxins. A simple and effective way is with essential oils for liver detox. The method is to take 1 drop each of therapeutic grade essential oils such as lemon and peppermint in 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
The Doterra detox 30 Day Cleanse
The Doterra 30 Day Cleanse should be taken daily first thing in the morning followed by a 30 minute wait before eating for maximum effectiveness. This is followed throughout the day by drinking water spiked with therapeutic grade lemon essential oils for liver detox (3-4 drops/qt).
The lemon water should be in a glass or SS container instead of plastic because citrus oils dissolve petroleum products and stick to the sides of plastic containers. The liver cleansing binds the toxins in the liver for removal and the lemon water flushes them from the body. As the liver is cleansed, energy, lifespan, and the ability to fight infections increases, excess fat is burned, and overall body metabolism, digestion, and health improve.
While doing a Doterra detox
While doing a Doterra detox, your body may feel very tiring. This is a sign that the cleanse is working. Generally, the more sluggish the liver, the more tired you will feel. If your energy level drops too low, cut the cleanse back to every other or every 3 days until you can function as needed during the day.
As your liver becomes cleaner, your energy level will gradually increase, eventually leveling out at a higher point than which you began the cleanse. As your energy level increases, if you are not doing the cleanse daily, decrease the days between cleanses until you are doing the cleanse daily.
