Homeopathic liver detox: homeopathic remedies for the liver Chelidonium 6x. Looking at the best homeopathic remedies for hormonal imbalance Sepia 200 and Pulsatilla 200.
-Problems with the digestive system are very common these days.
Our lifestyles, the amount of toxicity that we are surrounded with- and also ingest, can make our liver and bowel sluggish, making it more difficult to digest and process food nutrients as well as becoming less efficient at removing toxicity.
The liver is one of the most important organs of your body, it helps to detoxify chemicals, metabolises drugs, aids digestion, clears the blood of particles and infections, brakes down and regulates hormones.
Many are not aware that good liver function is essential for activation of Vitamin D to provide it to our body. In the liver, inactive Vitamin D taken from the sun and intestines is converted into the active form called 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Without this conversion, vitamin D is not useful in our body.
No wonder why most of us are low in this vitamin these days! with so much toxicity around.
This is where homeopathy can play a very important part in strengthening our digestive system.
You may feel that this is something new, as a result of our present lifestyle but in fact, old homeopaths like Burnett did realize that in a lot of conditions, the liver was so sluggish and that this was often a very important part of the treatment for many diseases.
In my practice, this is also true and liver support remedies are quite important in hormonal and eczema cases, in childhood particularly those that have started after vaccinations or strong medication.
This is also when Bowel Nosodes become very useful helping to restore the microbiota in the gut after helping the liver to be restored to its healthy functioning.
HOW TO HELP A SLUGGISH LIVER- TONING YOUR LIVER AND HELPING DETOXIFICATION
1- AFTER STRONG MEDICATIONS, SURGERY OR AN INFECTION
One of my favourite remedies to help people who suffer nausea after taking strong medications is either
If you are in the middle of an acute viral infection that is making you very nauseous with severe vomiting, then a 200c of the above remedies can also be helpful.
Another of my favourite remedies to support a sluggish liver is Chelidonium.
I used to use mother tincture but since starting to work with the Banerji Protocols, I use Chelidonium 6x potency twice per day, which is in their opinion - and in my experience also- more effective and gentle.
This remedy can also help to stimulate bile and helps the bowel moving and it is also a great remedy for stimulating appetite.
2- CHRONIC HEPATITIS
Cheledonium 6x, Lycopodium 30 and Nux vomica 30 are some of the best remedies to help with Chronic Hepatitis .
Lycopodium is especially indicated for portal hypertension if there is cirrhosis of the liver.
The Banerjies add Thuja 30 in cases of Hepatitis A, B, C to help with the viral load daily.
Carduus Marianus mother tincture is also a fantastic tool for supporting the liver as it aids detoxification, helps to maintain healthy function and helps to reduce inflammation in the digestive tract.
It is useful for those that have a compromised liver such as those suffering from chronic or acute hepatitis or alcohol damage.
The homeopathic dose of MT is 5 drops 2-3 times per day.
Lycopodium 30 and Chelidonium 6x should be taken twice per day.
