Twelve Steps to Improving Liver Function 

  • 1. Listen to your body – eat when hungry and stop when full. Otherwise you’ll overburden your system.
  • 2. Drink AT LEAST 1.5-2litres of water daily (think how your plants look when they’re dehydrated and transfer this image to every cell of your body). Water cleanses the liver and kidneys.

1. Cut caffeine. Completely. Anyone who suffers from insomnia shouldn't be having any at all. It will keep you awake, not to mention making you more anxious. Decaf coffee still contains theobromine, a stimulating chemical, so it is still detrimental to good sleep.


Day one is the morning-after-the-night-before, as you take your first laxative when you go to bed.


The importance of emptying your bowels fully every day cannot be underestimated. Put simply, faecal matter is waste the body has ear-marked for excretion either because it is of no use to the body or because it contains toxins the body does not want.


Probiotic is a word that is bandied around quite commonly these days, and we know it's something that's supposed to be good for us, but what is a probiotic, do we really need them and what is the best way to get them?

Detox Eating Plan

Written by Published in Sara's Blog 2012

Digestion takes up 50% of your body’s energy. Eating easily digestible foods will mean you get the best results from your detoxification because doing so allows the body to divert energy usually taken up with digesting complex foods to cleansing.


Why do we need to cleanse our colons? A modern industrialised lifestyle has taken its toll on our digestive and eliminative organs. Refined, processed low fibre foods, animal fats, a lack of exercise and ever increasing levels of stress all contribute.
