3 Warming Soups for Liver Cleanse

How about that? All our organs have their special role, but it’s the liver that processes and neutralizes all the chemicals our body is exposed to, from our food, environment, or personal care products. In healthy diets or detox diets, when we consume appreciable quantities of vegetables and fruits, our cells receive high concentrations of potassium which flushes out excess water and toxins, creating an alkaline environment.

The toxins are then sent via the bloodstream to the liver, which neutralizes them for excretion either by the kidneys or through the colon, via the bile. During detox diets, lots of toxins are flushed out from our cells, so the liver is exposed to a greater pressure and needs to be stimulated to cope with the higher bile production.

Not just because so much of the country is jaw-droppingly picturesque and packed full of history and culture, or that the deliciousness of their food and wine leaves me so constantly in awe… but mostly because I would love dearly to have grown up with an Italian Nonna in my life. Complete with her opinionated wisdom on all facets of life and her deep sense of family and love to knit everyone together.
