    Drink plenty of lemon water

    Try to drink between 8- 10 glasses of filtered, pure water every day. It is the only way your liver can drive toxins out of your body. Better yet, start every day with a large glass of water with the fresh juice of one to one half lemon added. Lemon helps bolster your liver’s detoxification abilities. The citric acid in lemon juice encourages the liver to produce bile, one more vehicle that your body uses to excrete toxins.

    Eat cruciferous vegetables

    Eat plenty of liver rebuilding foods, such as leafy greens, beets, carrots, cabbage, kale, arugula, collard greens and other veggies. They are recommended foods when doing a liver detox. Be sure to eat at least two serving a day. Eat lots of onions, garlic and broccoli since these vegetables contain sulfur which is required to increase the liver’s detoxification ability. Detoxification in the liver requires considerable amounts of nutrients to function properly so be sure to take a high quality mineral supplement and multivitamin. Even a single nutrient deficiency can seriously interrupt natural detoxification processes.

    Do a little massage

    While lying flat on your back, you can gently massage the gallbladder and liver area, which is located along the lower rib on the right side of the body. This helps improve blood circulation to the liver.

    Do not overburden your liver

    Your liver works hard enough without having to process things like alcohol and over the counter painkillers that are unnecessarily hard on this vital organ. Generally, taking regular and even small doses of painkillers is the leading cause of drug induced liver failure and disease.

    Get enough minerals

    Minerals are essential to the liver detoxification process, so make sure you are eating plenty of mineral-rich foods or taking a good mineral supplement. It is better to look for a liquid based supplement with both trace and macro minerals. Important minerals for liver detoxification include magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, sodium, iron, zinc, selenium, manganese and others.
