Can a Detox or Cleanse Process Help Your Liver?

Saturday, August 24th, 2019

You want to do everything you can to take an active role in your health. But if you think you need a liver detox (also known as a liver cleanse or flush), you should know there isn’t much it can do for you.

Your liver is one of the largest organs in your body. It helps remove waste products and processes various nutrients and medicines. Most people think a cleanse will help their liver remove toxins better after too much alcohol or unhealthy foods. Some hope it will help their liver work better on a daily basis. Many believe it’ll help treat liver disease.

Like most detox methods, a liver cleanse has specific steps. You may have to fast or to only drink juices or other liquids for several days. You might need to eat a restricted diet, or take herbal or dietary supplements. Some detoxes also prompt you to buy a variety of other commercial products. Some approaches may combine several of these methods.

Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

WARNING! GRAPHIC

A mum has shared the horrifying details of her baby losing all four of his limbs after a throat infection turned into deadly sepsis.

Oliver Aisthorpe has made a miraculous recovery after doctors warned mum Abigail Wardle, 23, that her 11-month-old son wasn’t going to pull through.

And even after he beat the infection, Abigail, from Cleethorpes, in the UK, had to endure the horror of Oliver’s leg self-amputating and coming away in her hand as she held him in his hospital bed.

It was a shocking ordeal considering just 48 hours earlier he’d been a happy, giggling little boy.
