How to Cleanse Your Liver for More Energy, Better Moods and Vibrant Health
by Dodee Schmitt
It is amazing to note that our liver’s perform the great job of over 600 functions in our bodies.
Almost every challenging health condition in the body has started with a clogged up liver. Synthetic hormones, bacteria, parasites, junk food, pesticides — it all ends up in your liver. Even negative thinking leaves an imprint in the liver if it has not been released and forgiven.
The liver filters out the toxic waste in your body. It also makes glucose which is your body’s energy supply. If you have low energy your liver is probably clogged. The healthier the liver is, the more ageless, happy and connected we are!

Tomorrow, March 8, 2011 is International Women’s Day, a day when we celebrate the lives of women. Unfortunately, for many women (about 1 in 9 in Canada), too many lives are touched or ended prematurely by breast cancer.
Recently, we were asked if our green smoothie program would be helpful for someone who is facing breast cancer.
Here’s what our health consultant, Doctor Ariel Policano, NMD had to say:
When a person contemplates if something will work for breast cancer, you might want to approach it by asking the following question. Will it improve the overall functioning of your body including:
- your liver,
- your immune system,
- and your digestive health?
If the answer is yes, it is likely to have a very positive effect on your chronic health condition.
Here are the three ways that participating in a Green Smoothie program like the 21-Day Green Smoothie Detox can improve the health of someone with breast cancer.

What is the Root Cause of Anger?
One area of health that’s always fascinated me is the connection between the health of the organs and our emotions. In fact it’s become one of my favourite ‘diagnostic’ tools. I read the emotions that someone habitually experiences in their facial expressions, posture, use of language, vocal tone and the things they say. From there I can quite easily see how their organs are functioning, a key factor in their overall health.
Many alternative health practitioners emphasise the importance of recognising the body and mind are connected. I feel that the connection between our body and our feelings is even more fundamental and important.
The relationship between organs and emotions that I find tends to be highlighted in a particularly obvious way Read more »

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)
“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have yet been discovered.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I don’t have to explain the bad reputation that dandelion has as a persistent weed. I was shocked myself to learn of the benefits of dandelion when I began to study herbs. This healing medicinal herb dates back 1,000 years.
Dandelion is in the Compositae family along with the daisy, echinacea, and marigold. It’s also known as lion’s tooth, wild endive, and piss-abed .
The Doctrine of Signatures, which says that a plant’s physical characteristics reveals their healing values, was first noted in the middles ages and is still believed today by many. Under this doctrine, anything yellow was linked to the liver’s bile and considered a liver remedy. This is proven to be correct as two German studies have shown that Read more »

Spring! It’s a time to get out! To burst into summer with sparkles of energy! To feel a surge of life coursing through your veins that makes you dance and delight in the joy of each day!
Or… maybe not so much.
Maybe you’re just lucky to keep both eyes open at the same time. Maybe the bags under your eyes and the heaviness in your limbs attests that your meal preparations lately may have more to do with opening bags of chips and driving up to windows. You want a change. Maybe you just need a VACATION.
Can’t manage the time or the cost? heheh… what if you just made travel arrangements for just one organ? I never said that ALL of you had to go. You can send your liver on a 21-Day green smoothie detox trip to the tropics!
As always, we’re sure to have a lot of fun getting healthy together! There’s a complete green raw food menu planner, a detoxification journal, and daily e-mails from moi! AND you’ll have opportunities to participate in LIVE teleseminar calls where you can have your questions answered. Oh… and did I mention there’ll be green smoothies!?

April’s the perfect time my friends… you’ll be ready for summer and full of energy to enjoy your holidays!!
