Beetroot - a powerful natural promotor of liver detoxification - Do you suffer from chronic fatigue, headaches, constipation, gall bladder disease/gall stones, aversion to fats, terrible hangovers etc? These are some common symptoms of what is known in naturopathic terms as a sluggish liver, or in other words a sign that your liver is overburdened by too many toxins. Toxin accumulation in liver is scientific fact. It is well accepted that alcohol is a toxic substance that damages liver cells. There are a plethora of environmental toxic chemicals that damage the liver and cause steatosis (fat accumulation in the liver). Doctors do ot discuss this because the drugs they prescribe are toxic to the liver and cause liver damage. Herbs prescribed by naturopaths on the the hand are hepatoprotective and can regenerate liver cells.
Removal of toxins from the body is an integral part of Ayurvedic, yogic, and naturopathic medicine. Symptoms of poor health in people free from diagnosed disease may be related to toxin build-up. Improved liver detoxification capacity contributes to overall health and well-being. Detoxification programmes may produce improvements in subjective health reports. (MacIntosh A1, Ball K. The effects of a short program of detoxification in disease-free individuals.Altern Ther Health Med. 2000 Jul;6(4):70-6). Spring is traditionally time to detox. Here are instructions for a detox including a Liver Flush, originally used by a Dr. Schulze. Dr. Richard Schulze, N.D., M.H . is one of the foremost authorities on natural medicine and herbalism in the World. He operated Natural Cure Clinics in New York, Southern California and Europe for almost 20 years up until 1994. The following method for a Liver Flush formed part of his programme for treatment of so-called “incurable” diseases. After both his parents unfortunately dying of heart attacks at an early age and he himself being diagnosed with an incurable disease, Dr Schulze changed his lifestyle and got better. The following is part of his treatment protocol.

Winter brings naturally virulent viruses
Rhinovirus (RV) is the most common virus in humans and the predominant cause of the common cold. In healthy individuals symptoms are usually mild and self-limited. Treatment is focused on symptomatic relief and prevention of person-to-person spread. Cough into your elbow. Coughing into your hands is so last century. Colds can, in susceptible individuals, lead to the more serious condition of flu so best bet is to nip a cold in the bud. Flu is caused by the influenza virus (ever mutating). Fever, exhaustion and serious complications are more usual in flu.
It is now winter
I would like to focus on some attention on an often underrated organ, or actually two organs, the kidneys. In Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM, the organ that corresponds to the season of winter is the kidneys. The paired kidneys are part of the urinary tract. The urinary tract also consists of ureters, (tubes that connect the kidney to the bladder), the bladder and the urethra, which connects the bladder to the outside.
