Salad for Colon Liver Cleanse
Courtesy of Phyllis Georgic
This is a colon cleanse and liver cleanse salad that Phyllis made up and uses for herself at least three times each month. She says, "If you make this and continue to eat only this until it is completely finished you will certainly see the highest benefit of this most medicinal detoxification meal."
Many folks are not happy going through colon cleanses with diets that causes them to be hungry draining their energy. This cleanse will satisfy your hungry by filling you belly, yet will bring about a cleansing of the colon in ways you never though possible, then the piece de resistance is the liver cleanse.
When following these directions, don’t get caught up in herbs that you don’t particularly care for and have this stop you. Do as you wish and add or subtract what you care to and it will still give you the cleansing that you are seeking. If you enjoy all of the ingredients, then go for it more often. Add a few others if you find the need as well.

We have liver cleanses here and they are very popular, usually means total starvation and lemon and cayenne pepper drinks, or taking about 27 tablets a day with a diet of lettuce. People forget that our bodies are detoxing all the time and require proper natural assistance through good organic foods. THis sounds really good. Am going to give it a try as everything in our garden. What is a rutabaga...Will report back when completed, looks a lot of food !! Will be interesting, got to try it before I can recommend.
