Okay, here how it all started. I have a problem, my skin is very sensitive and bruising easily, so i was making a research about the reasons, and ended up reading some articles about the importance of liver, in the article it says that " The liver's main job is to clean your blood, it also fights off infections, regulates hormones and supplies your body with energy. I assume most of them already knew these. An unhappy liver can lead to fatigue, weight gain, mood swings and poor concentration. It can take a toll on your looks, too, giving you brittle nails, dull hair and unhealthy-looking skin. In extreme cases, it can progress to serious liver diseases such as cirrhosis. And at the end of the article there was a tonic recipe for liver. I wanted to share it with you. Ginger Tea Ginger tea is believed to act as a tonic for your liver. It is also thought to improve digestion, relieve nausea and help ward off colds and flu. 1 piece fresh ginger root, about 2 inches (5 cm) long 4 cups (1 L) water honey and lemon to taste (optional) Peel ginger root and slice it thinly. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add ginger. Cover and reduce heat; simmer tea for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the tea. Add honey and lemon to taste. Makes 4 servings. It tastes a little hot(spicy) but good for liver. Have a healthy days!!!

You avatar is scary ! Yes I agree that the liver is very important. Ginger is wonderful and also yummy! Something I love, that is one of the best things for the liver is dandelion. Yes, the same weed that people find on their lawns. You can eat it or make tea out of it (or buy dandelion tea at a health food store.) It is an excellent herb for the liver and can be used to get rid of hepatitis. Thanks for the recipe!

Yes this is a receipt exactly for cleaning the liver. I tried this morning , well couldn't say i enjoyed a lot because i didn't add any honey or lemon juice but still knowing that it is helping the liver health it didn't bother me that much. Thank you for your answer and have a great day!

Thanks for much for your information. I have exactly the symptons you described and have been annoyed with the skin problems for a long time. We use ginger when cooking fish and make soup. It is also good to ease pain. Ginger tea is easily available, I will try and share with you the results.

That sounds interesting. I may give it a try. I know I need some kind of "cleaning out" of my liver and probably kidneys. I see all kinds of things on the market but I don't know which ones are actually good for you. This one sounds like it would be good to do. Thanks for sharing. Happy lotting.

Well, I am being careless with my liver. When my mother cook foods ginger is included but not always. Thanks for bringing this topic at least it reminds us all that liver is important for our good health.
