Liver Cleanse Tincture Mix(LCT)
Did you know that stress, anxiety, moodiness and irritability often come from an unhealthy liver? Embrace the healthiest, happiest version of you with our easily prepared organic Liver Cleanse Tincture.
Liver Cleanse Tincture is used to clean and rebuild the liver. The herbs in this mix are some of the best herbs for purifying the blood and liver, shrinking enlarged liver, and helping the liver function properly.
Make your tincture by filling a jar 1/3 - 1/2 full of herbs. Use 1/3 for hard herbs and roots (as they will absorb more liquid) and 1/2 for soft or fluffy herbs. Fill the jar to the top with alcohol (80-90 proof Vodka is best), close it, and store for 3-8 weeks in a cool, dry place. Shake the jar daily. After 3-8 weeks, strain and discard the herbs, bottle the liquid and label it.

Contains: Organic Indian Gooseberry/Amalaki, Organic Turmeric Root Powder, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Dandelion Root, Organic Licorice Root, Organic Burdock Root, Organic Milk Thistle Seed, Organic Hawthorn Berries, Organic Eleuthero Root, Organic Astragalus Root & Organic St. John’s Wort.
Precaution: Not recommended to use during pregnancy or nursing.
Why use vodka? Water rolls off the liver where alcohol goes straight to it taking the herbs with it. Dosage regimens are documented at the end of the following article.
To make enough tincture to last 6 months you will need 1lb of Liver Cleanse Tincture. This will fill three quart jars 1/3 full of the tincture mix. Once the tincture is ready there should be around two quarts of liquid left which should last for 6 months. This calculation is based on taking 1/2 tsp. of tincture 4 times daily. A 1/2 lb of Liver Cleanse Tincture will make enough to last 3 months using the same calculations as above.

My husband spent many of his young years on fishing boats in Alaska. The life of a professional fisher is not easy. Their days were 18 to 22 hours on their feet fishing, and they would be out on the boat from 2 weeks to a month at a time.
Life was hard and made for real men, but it also made for toe fungus. Wearing the same shoes, and sometimes running out of socks, feet would get wet. White nails began to grow as the fungus grew with strength. Toe fungus is not one of these things that just go away if you ignore it, but more people try. James and I got married a few years later. I took one look at his toe nails and I was determined to get rid of it. So I found some natural remedies and gave them to him, but he was used to having the fungus, and was not as determined as I was to get rid of it. With any aliment, it takes consistence to get rid of it. After a few years he wanted to get serious and get rid of the fungus, so he went to the doctor and got some medicine. He took it for three months. It got better and was almost gone. He ran out of the medicine but kept his feet clean and dry. It came back fast and with a vengeance. He went back to the doctor and got more medicine, it worked but not as well as the first time, and the moment he stopped taking it, the fungus was worse than ever, and not only that but he always seemed to be stressed out, grouchy and sometimes even angry.
I knew that this was not him and there was something wrong, so I started to research. I knew that certain medications have a adverse action on the liver, but I did not know that anti-fungal like Ketoconazole, and anti-TB medicines like Rifampicin and Pyrazinamide were at the top of the list of liver killers. I knew James was in trouble and I wanted to know how bad he was and what I could do to help him, so I started to researched the symptoms of liver problems.
Here are a few of the symptom you can have: constipation, chronic gastritis, morning sickness, hepatitis, cirrhosis, Hepatomegaly, skin and eyes acquire a yellowish tinge and the urine turns dark yellow, anemic, nauseating feeling, light colored stools, irritable bowels or irregular bowel movements, swelling under the right lower ribs, painful breathing, curved and whitish look of nails, nose bleeding, and easy bruises as it shows liver abnormality and deficiency of proteins, and also frequent headaches, dizziness, spasms, irritability, depression, anger, stress, PMS, hormonal problems, acne, skin rashes or skin problems, and tiredness.
He had many of the symptoms, so I started researching everything liver. Did you know a fully grown liver is the size of a football and the biggest organ of the body? And that many people live with less than three quarters of their liver working? Did you know that it is not only an organ but also the largest gland in the body? Your liver is one of the most important components your body has. It is also the only organ that can rebuild itself. To rebuild a liver completely takes 18 to 24 months, because that is how long the liver cells live.
The liver has many functions from manufacturing proteins, synthesizing, storing, and processing (metabolizing) fats (used for energy), metabolizing and storing carbohydrates, which are used in blood that red blood cells and the brain use, forming and secreting bile, and absorbing vitamins A, D, E, and K. The liver also eliminates the potentially harmful biochemical products produced by the body, detoxifies drugs, alcohol, and environmental toxins.
Two to six months is a good start to get a good cleanse and to detoxify your liver. Everyone is different with detoxification depending on what they eat and what they are around. People eating organic food and living a low chemical life will recover much faster than say, a painter or someone that has been on prescription medications with serious side effects, and eats non organic. Life can get bad quick when your liver is not working well because your blood passes through your liver but does not get recharged properly. This can make you have fatigue, toxemia, and chronic diseases. A healthy liver balances your life and gives you the quality of living. Having a bad liver can literally take the joy and excitement in life and turn it into impatience and anger. So how do you know when your liver cleansing program is complete? Your skin will be more lustrous, vision will be better, skin will be free from red blotches and itchy spots, clarity in the brain, you'll have more energy and a sense for tomorrow.
Regenerating the liver takes longer than detoxification. You will feel better because the detoxification will have given your liver the clean house it needs to start rebuilding, but it needs to be nourished and well taken care of while it is rebuilding. Here are some things that help your liver along: eating nourishing and organic foods whenever you can, staying away for chemicals, drinking 8 cups of water an day, taking nourishing anti-oxidants, and using blood purifying herbs and foods.
I researched herbs to find the perfect combination for my man to take. I made a tincture and he started taking it. Within a few days I could already tell a difference. He was relaxed for the first time in months. I was so excited!!! I knew we had a long way to go but we were well on our way to the old James. One month later he is still taking my homemade Liver Tincture and doing well. He plans to continue to do take a dropper full (1/2 tsp) 3 to 5 times a day for 3 to 6 months then a dropper full 1 to 2 times a day for 2 years. Life is good and living life with joy, excitement, and a purpose for tomorrow makes it even better. Don’t give up if you are sick. Research!!! . . . and live the quality of life you can.
