How to Cleanse Your Liver Without Using a Liver Cleanse – Liver Affirmations
Liver flushes are all the rage in alternative health circles, but do they work and are they necessary? Certainly, liver health is vital; But is a liver flush enough, or do you need to do something else? Even if you use a liver flush, there is always a chance that whatever you cleanse will come back until you learn how to keep your liver clean and healthy without using a liver flush. Here’s the easiest way to cleanse your liver and restore liver health; and it doesn’t cost a penny.
According to ancient wisdom, Chinese medicine, and even cutting-edge medical systems, the liver is the seat of anger and primitive emotions. Authors such as Louise Hay (Heal Your Body), Candace Pert (Molecules of Emotion), and Bruce Lipton (Biology of Belief) point to our ability to produce healing chemistry in our bodies, or not-so-useful chemistry—that breaks us down and makes us susceptible to diseases, parasites, etc. The amazing thing is that we don’t create these different biochemical states with chemicals and foreign substances – we create them with our minds.
In fact, we create our problems and our remedies in our own mind; We simply have to understand which thoughts lead to illness and which thoughts lead to well-being – and pay attention to where we put our attention. Focusing on positive thoughts will keep you stress free and healthy. and changing a thought that caused a stress-related problem can almost instantly reverse the condition it caused. Indeed, thanks to modern science and researchers like Candace Pert, Louise Hay and Bruce Lipton and others, we know exactly what kind of thoughts cause what kind of problems; Thus, we can easily create thought patterns that address and correct the effects of our harmful or problematic thoughts.
Anger is a natural emotion; but our thoughts about anger, our thoughts that cause anger, and our beliefs and attitudes about anger are often far from normal and natural. When we get stuck on certain “anger thoughts” – even at a subconscious level – we get stuck in the physical effects of that specific type of thinking. Reprogramming or restructuring our thoughts will change the way our health expresses itself in that particular area of our lives. When we talk about the liver and liver problems, we’re talking about anger and anger thoughts.
Anger thoughts trigger the stress response, the release of specific hormones, and the generation of energy and activity in the liver – all of which have a debilitating effect on the liver and immune system. If you’re having problems with your liver at all, you may be able to restore your health simply by implementing new programs or thoughts that turn off the stress response, release more beneficial chemicals, and calm and soothe the liver—as well as making it too healthy a place to be to endure parasites and other liver problems. Behind most liver problems lie anxious thoughts, thoughts of anger or rage, hateful or prejudiced thinking, and constant complaining or fault finding—even when the person with the problem is unaware or unaware of their thoughts and behaviors.
According to many naturopaths and researchers, the solution to liver problems could be as simple as repeating certain affirmations, or “corrective thought patterns,” to override the problematic angry thoughts – essentially canceling them out and replacing the harmful effects of angry thinking with the more healing and beneficial one Chemistry and the Effects of Healthier Thinking and Thought Patterns. Louise Hay recommends several affirmations for liver health in her book, Heal Your Body, including:
- “Love, peace and joy are what I know.”
- “I choose to live the open space in my heart. I look for love and I find it everywhere.”
- “My mind is purified and free. I am leaving the past and moving into the new. All is well.”
- “I feel tolerance, compassion and love for all people – including myself.”
- “There is a joyful release from the past. Life is sweet and so am I.”
To get the most out of this “mental liver cleanse,” get yourself into a relaxed state before you say them—right before bed and right after waking are, of course, ideal times of day to say affirmations. Write these affirmations on a card; and keep them handy so you can say and think about them as many times as you can throughout the day. Repeat each affirmation three times; and then go to sleep – or get on with the rest of the day, paying attention to anger, judgement, troubleshooting, complaining and all the other thoughts and behaviors that have been shown to stress and weaken the liver. Drink plenty of water while doing any type of cleanse—even a mental cleanse. And be patient with yourself as you go through this process. It may take days or even two or three weeks before you see definitive changes; but you will see changes once you replace the anger with less toxic thoughts.
