Liver Cleanse

Question: "How do toxins leave the body when doing a liver cleanse such as your Yoga Cleanse DVD?

"...waste, sweat, urine?.....":

Answer: All of the above, plus the breath! It would be good to do Yoga Cleanse 2-3 times per week for 6 months. If you are not doing part 2 of the Yoga Cleanse DVD, you might also add Sitali Pranayam (you can read about it on this Archive.

If you have a lifestyle regimen in conjunction with your yoga practice,only go for as long as indicated for that particular regimen.

Please remember to drink plenty of water to help flush out the toxins.

If you are not already, you might try silymarin (milk thistle extract). Steamed beets are also very cleansing for the liver. Yoga Bhajan had people go on a steamed daikon radish mono diet to cleanse the liver. You might try it for 3-4 days. The way in which you go into it and come out of it, is as important as the mono diet itself, i.e.,: eat fresh and very light before and afterwards.

These things we recommend should be done periodically over time. Detoxing is more safe and effective when done over a long period of time as opposed to trying to do it all at once.
