Doing all of the right things health wise and still struggling? Liver Rescue may just be your answer. If you are struggling with thyroid, autoimmune, acne, food/chemical sensitivities , brain fog, adrenal issues and high blood pressure, it likely is a result of a sick liver. 

Now there aren’t medical tests that do a good job assessing our liver. Currently doctors measure liver enzymes but by the time your liver enzymes are you high, you would  have a very sick liver and be in the early stages of liver disease.  So you have to go by symptoms and often symptoms seem unrelated to your liver, but Liver Rescue does an amazing job of showing the interconnectedness of our liver to the rest of our body. This is why a liver that isn’t functioning properly can lead to fatigue, autoimmune issues, brain fog etc. 

This book outlines how our liver needs to be cleansed in cycles of 3 and as such, Anthony outlines a cleanse he has called the 3-6-9. Unfortunately, I found the instructions for the 3-6-9 confusing and there was no shopping list. So I want to provide clarity on the cleanse from the book from my own experience below. If you haven’t gotten the book, you can order from Amazon here.

3-6-9 Tips

Day 1-3

Eat fats after lunch

No caffeine

Optional animal protein eaten only at dinner

If you eat raw, eat all of the foods raw

Don’t forget the apples in the afternoon

 

Day 4-6

No fats

Dinner on Day 4 is with asparagus, day 5 switches to brussel sprouts and day 6 is both asparagus and brussel sprouts

Steam your asparagus and brussel sprouts

In the afternoon snack, add in celery sticks

 

Day 7-9

***Don’t add in the avocado in the spinach recipe which is included in the original recipe

Add in cucumber to your afternoon snack

Finally the recipes in the book are not the ones you should be using on days 4-9. You can use them in Day 1-3 so long as you are only having fat at dinner.
