Ways to detox liver naturally
Feb 19, 2014

Dear Dr Ben,

This is Ed from Malaysia......Dr, can you suggest the best way to detox the liver since Milk Thistle is not highly recommended....Will raw tomatoes and avocado helps?

How about the popular liver detox programme like below:- - Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet - Fat Flush Diet - Liver Cleanse Diet - Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox - Raw Food Diet

Will these programes interact with the HIV medication (Tenvir-EM & Stocrin) in general?

Regards, Ed

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Ed and good to hear from you in Malaysia.

All of these so-called liver detox programmes aren't worth the effort-- they're a clever marketing scheme without any scientific basis. Too many people needlessly spend hard earned money on such scams.

For that matter, dietary strategies have minimal, if any, effect, so continue to feast on a balanced, and wonderful Malaysian diet.

What is most reasonable is to have medical screening (and vaccination, if appropriate) for hepatitis A, B and C (and protected sex to avoid transmission of viral hepatitis) and avoidance of excess alcohol and acetominophen.

Hope that's helpful, BY
