Liver Cleansing Diet

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

The Liver Cleansing Diet by Dr. Sandra Cabot, was one of the first detox books written. After release it quickly became a huge bestseller.

After seeing numerous overweight patients, many with sluggish metabolisms, Dr Cabot decided that liver function was impaired – due to poor diet and nutrition. Dr Cabot claimed that improving liver function led to weight loss. After 2 years of working successfully with 1540 patients she professes a 100% success rate.

Liver Cleansing in Brief

The premise of this diet is good, but it seems to be too simplistic to blame a single organ for most people’s weight and health issues. Detox diets are useful, but don’t necessary aid or teach you in forming lifelong good eating habits. There is also a lack of scientific evidence proving that detoxifying diets are as effective as they are claimed.

If you have to continually ‘reach’ for a detox diet, then something in your everyday nutrition and lifestyle is not right.
